So Roy - is your previous post: "The road between Nong Prajak entrance down to the Kings house (believe that it is the Prince's house actually...) will be closed as of 12 tomorrow afternoon." no longer valid?

The original topic was about changing the laws on rape and the (unfair?)discrimination between men and women in the courts. Would anyone like to comment further on this ?

There is an inherent problem with using system restore and that is the infected files will remain on the computer, but remain in the restore files. It is a good idea to remove those files with a good virus detection program. Having created a successful system restore, the next step should be to crea...

Yes Ray - the 90 day reporting cycle begins anytime that you leave the Kingdom and return again.

The 90 day reporting cycle also begins the day that you check in. So, if you check in a few days early - that is when the new reporting cycle begins.

The US Embassy gives you a letter when they issue a new passport. Imperative to present your newly expired passport to Immigration so that they can transfer the visas and so forth to the new passport.

I have known the owners of Richmonds - Russell and Pookie - for a long time. If there was a problem with the bill, they would have resolved it if it had been brought to their attention. Bringing it to the attention of their staff - or whoever says that they are in charge at the time could result in ...

Then the best way to change this is by giving them access to DIFFERENT cultures so that they can learn and filter out what is good and bad with your own culture or good and bad with other cultures.

14 months may be a bit on the shy side - Average seems to be about 24 months.

Any tire shop - especially the big ones - like at Tesco or Big C - should have batteries. Of course, the dealership you bought the car from is another alternative.

I think that a side of beef is a bit over the top. (In US Terms a "side of beef" is one half of a cow... Perhaps British is something else???) I have found that many Thais do not really like beef all that much - and prefer pork, chicken and of course, fish. Taking a lot of meat might be problemetac ...

Good idea not to stay at the farm.
