Re: Desford Colliery Band World Tour with photos and videos

An associated musical tradition---since the coal mines shut in S.Wales do they still have the male-voice choirs that were

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.

You know you have been in Thai too long when------

You never wonder how a public servant who makes 80,000b/month is able to drive his children to their private school in his Mercedes.

Re: Education reforms as elusive as ever in Thailand

Jack Sprat--- Surely you are not seriously suggesting that the Thai Military could defend the country-- The report of the invasion would finish with the words that all traffic fatality reports end with --the driver fled the scene.

Re: Education reforms as elusive as ever in Thailand

This is also one of the reasons that Thai people will not take a posting out of BKK, they know that if they do their children;s future will be in peril. I have a friend, expat, retired to HH, but moved to BKK which he dislikes for the sake of his 2 thai step-children. Another Thai lady Dr enjoyed HH...

Re: With 15 daily deaths, Thailand world's deadliest country for motorcyclists

I am amazed at te figure that 53% of riders wear helmets, I would have guessed about 30%. It is MUCH higher in BKK of course.
