Large Stones to Help Retain Soil

How many cubic meters do you need? A 10-wheel truck load direct from the quarry is about 10-12 cubic meters. Any store that can supply crushed stone can also provide larger stone. It should actually be cheaper.

Iphone Repair

The best phone repair shop that I've found is Kings Phone on Pracha Uthit Road across the street from a Christian church and down a few shops. It's near Ponphisai road. He does good work.

Solar Power

Maaka

For your 12 volt system, how stable is your electricity / how sensitive are your lights and equipment to voltage changes. What's the longest run of wire you have and what voltage drops do you get? I'd like to do my house's lighting all in 12 volt.

Visa extension with name difficulty.

I went down on Tuesday and got an affidavit for my name(s). Today, Wednesday, Udon Thani immigration wouldn't accept it because of item number 4 on the form; (i.e., "the Consul doesn't guarantee this statement"). They wanted what they give to certify income: a certified statement on letterhead stati...

24th visa extension with some hard lessons

That was Friday, April 22nd. On Monday, April 25th (Memorial Day), we went back to immigration. The district (ampher) office had added a correcting note to our marriage certificate changing my name to my full name with correct spelling in Thai. They had also added my middle name to two of our 3 chil...

GT93, I think that this is a good topic. Consider the scene in Schindler's List: the prisoners' housing is rife with dysentery and yet in the evening when an old man goes to the screen separating the men's and women's quarters one of the questions he asks his beloved is, "have you moved yet?."

24th visa extension with some hard lessons

Today I went to immigration to extend my "O" marriage visa for the 24th year. There have been changes from time to time but this year is by far the strangest experience I've had. I'd thought I'd share the salient points: - my wife's (she's Thai) id card will expire on 24 June - that wasn't acceptabl...

looking for cake tray

There is a bakery supply shop on Mak Khaeng road near it's intersection with Prajak road; just down from Krueng Thai bank. I saw they had several baking tins when I was in there looking for durable pie tins - which I haven't found any yet.

Safe to Drink Rain Water??

When I came here 24 years ago I drank water from a well. I took a sample into the hospital lab (it's now done in Bangkok). I looked through their log book. They had one of 2 designations for each sample checked: บ for well water and ฝ for rain water. I asked why they even needed to check rain water....

Some years ago I was visiting Phu Foi Lome and took a walk on the trail by the dinosaur museum. I picked up some litter as I went. Some Thai people commented on it. I met up with them again later on the walk - their hands were full of litter. Good examples do help. But I don't do it to be a good exa...
