very expensive where you buy, but cheap as chips locally. a scotch 23 version available everywhere when I was shopping for my submersible water pump. though just the one size. really didn't look for variety, as that's what I wanted. still have plenty left over, and use it to wrap the handle of the k...

Australian Arrested

You seem to have coped with it rather well, outwardly anyway. I simply can't image, especially at such a young age. As best that you have coped and dealt with, sadly, it inescapable. Surely everyday, you have reminders all around you. Stories and new blips such as this, far too many. Movies, talk sh...

Agree..........too many knew his illegality of entry and past. WTF, that's embarrassing. Sorry, I would of reported him immediately. Illegal entry, sorry, well no, I'm not, but I'm ratting your arse out. If you need to enter illegally, I don't want you here. Victimless 'crime', probably give it a pa...

Reigniting the Steak Wars

In the US / Philly area, well, 20 yrs ago, Black Angus was the high end / quality beef available. Things have changed drastically in the grading in the US. Down to 2 choices for grading, choice or prime, and don't think their is an 'in class' grading. Beef was very cheap in US, compared to elsewhere...

Also.......... what were they judging, the 'meat', beef of one select cow, from the herd... or ... the finished 'cooked' results. Contests, same as polls and surveys.......... On any given day, anyone, well, I can, make a good piece of 'thrifty' purchased beef taste damn good and tender. Know how to...

Reigniting the Steak Wars

Not disputing, just an observation, but the OZ steaks served locally are the worst steaks I've ever 'tried' to eat. Not one to leave much on my dinner plate when finished, but can't say I tried to finish any of them. Kudos for the medal collection, but also agree, 10 countries is a poor 'world' surv...

Mobile roadblocks against traffic violators scrapped nationw

More hot air, never happen, too much cash at stake? Instituted the day we left, but no traffic violation stops in the usual spots, just truck safety/inspection stops, in practical places. No bottle necking, or need for sudden braking on inter province roads. Hwy #2 / 9 / 35 / 4 / 37 / 4 were all cl...

Lost and Found

The groundskeeper will put it on the local wire, as I'm out of the village itself and a few 100 meters from any neighbors, and almost a km from the small village. Don't think it will stay lost long. Wouldn't mind keeping it, but I don't do cages, and think my dog would get it sooner or later if loos...

75% in U.S. See Widespread Government Corruption

Ranking for countries who actually 'think' they have a free press. I'm amazed any country, would get higher than 50% approval rating. But USA is a fine example of educated people, informed voters, back to back idiots re-elected, and believe pretty much anything they are told in the press. Uruguay......

Anybody made an usufruct in Udon recently ??

An usufruct can contain restrictions on the rights of the usufructuary. An usufruct is a contract and as with any contract it can vary. One of the ways legal firms justify their fees are by writing very long documents. An usufruct can be one page or many FWIW ours is more than 7 pages Mine was a fi...

So you think your Thailand investments are safe

There seems to be a bit more to the story in the OP than is reported. Read between the lines. Like coxo, I've had nothing but positive, very positive return on funds invested here. 100 % ROI on first house, and lived there for 7 years, rent free. Second house 100 - 200 % ROI, and will have lived her...

Why Haven't We Heard Anything From Out There?

If it is true that there are around 40 billion planets in space, why have yet to hear from them and learn about their music, sports, politics et al? Some of the comments by the readers offer good explanations. http://news.nationalpost.com/full-comment/scott-van-wynsberghe-there-may-be-40-billion-ea...
