Lawn seed

I think the information above would be more useful with a map showing the location of the store from which I purchase fertilizer.

It is the red dot to which the red arrow points. The store is South-East of Thung Si Mueang.

Lawn seed

For a few years I used just go to a garden/farm supply store and pick up hand-filled plastic bags with the content marked in felt pen. Fairly inexpensive, but I stopped fertilizing when I started cutting my own grass. I also stopped the automatic irrigation system for the same reason :-)

Lawn seed

It is distressing to see "bare root sod" but with adequate rain or watering it will do just fine, even in marginal soil.

Renewing from temporary Thai drivers license to 5-year

What's the deal with testing and renewals? I only remember reading about a test with about a 90% failure rate, sure hope its not that one.

help, Colonscopy in Udon Thani

As I recall, one person posted his experience having a colonoscopy at Udon (government) Hospital. It was a positive review and inexpensive compared to all of the other hospitals that he had checked, and much less than I had been quoted by AEK and Bumrungrad. Unless there are complications, colonosco...

Anybody else noticed the change in water lately?

I remember that several years back, there was some work on a main water pipe near our village and the result was very muddy water, loaded with silt that settled into our water tank and went throughout the household plumbing. A real mess to clean up and even to this day, if I go to one of the taps wi...

Proof of Income Embassy Letter

Thank you, guys. I went and got the letter on Friday, which expires on Oct 17th. Got apply for the extension prior to that, and as LoneTraveler pointed out, the earlier the better. As with every extension, you never know for sure what whether you'll get it or not and if so, whether there will be any...

Proof of Income Embassy Letter

The American Consular Outreach is coming to Udon Thani on Friday. I am thinking of getting my income letter for use in October. Has anybody had recent confirmation that Immigration in Udon still accepts income letters up to six months old?

Eye surgery -<>- Augenoperation

Your best bet is Rutin per Augenoperation. If it is good enough for the Royal Family, it is good enough for you to consider. Be very careful about hospitals in Udon. One friend lost the sight in one eye because of a mis-diagnosis here.

basic cell phone issues

I have been using 1-2-3 call for 13 or 14 years and if I don't add about THB 100 each month, my account will expire. It is common. D Prompt for a while on another phone, they had similar policies.

Just a couple of thoughts: If you move to e-cigarettets that might be your bridge to nicotine gum, which of course could be your bridge to freedom. Not that I've tried that route.

Thailand Property Taxe Changes

When titles are registered at the land office, a value is assigned, which is used to calculate the property transfer charge. They could use that value as the assessed value for property tax purposes.

I like KTB... but...

Do you know of any banks in Thailand that don't charge for inter-region transfers? Haven't hear of one (yet). I think its like 150/180 baht international transfer ATM fee. The charge it because they can.
