Re: Desford Colliery Band World Tour with photos and videos

I don't think you'll be disappointed. It's not often we get a little bit of England in Hua Hin. They were excellent.

Ahh, sorry Pete, I had Mrs BB on my right, and she was on my left. However, I was too engrossed in the music to notice :oops:

Re: Thailand floods of 2017

It's Hua Hin, but looks more like yesterday. The Petchkasem/Soi 112 junction. I think the engineers built the drainage canal to the sea a bit low there, hence the canal always overflows there.

Re: Desford Colliery Band World Tour.....and Hua Hin!

Well, today was day I've been waiting for for a few days. It's always nice when a little bit of England comes to Hua Hin, and its a shame not to support it. Coming from Plymouth, I grew up with concerts by the Band of the Royal Marines. I guess my only other experience has been the Sally Army, but w...

Why can't people write in English, rather than code? :cuss:

Re: The History of Southeast Asia

The scene in A Now where they eat with the French family was edited out of the original version. Later they released a 'Directors cut,about 20+min longer with that scene in. It really improved the movie, gave it some perspective. Could you please expand on what you're saying please. I was baffled, ...

Re: Looking for Water Holding Tank Cleaning Service

There was a company, new I think, dropping leaflets around Soi 94 a few weeks ago and they came with a Farang and a Thai lady and a Thai worker and cleaned neighbours tanks. I've thrown the leaflet away but if you don't get any replies I will ask my neighbours for their number when I see them. I re...

Re: How can Thailand curb its appalling road fatality rate?

Now in Thailand some on this forum suggest that the poor driving is because of the lack of law enforcement. Good point, well made. Guilty as charged :D Obviously stupidity, but there must be something more than that. Why do so many visitors come here, jump on a motorcycle and simply go crazy? Do th...

Re: Best "free" film/TV streaming sites?

Looks good - I'm living off a lot of downloads/Kodi at the moment, so I'm getting my fix. I've bookmarked the site for when that fails, thank you.

Re: Premier League 2017-2018

When you're going through a rough patch, every trophy counts, and to take 3 trophies in his first season (regardless of how the rest of the world sees them) is quite an achievement IMHO. It's made the Manure fans happy on social media - they seem to have replaced the screaming Spuds fans who are sti...

Re: Looking for channel grate (flooding)

I would think (don't know until we see them) that you'd get a local metal shop to knock them up fairly cheaply.

Re: Premier League 2017-2018

I can see Manure being a force next season. 3 trophies this season with mainly inherited players, what will he do when he brings in his own players?
