Re: Residents angry as dredged sediment dumped

are people born dumb or do they learn to be dumb and if they can learn to be dumb they can learn to be not dumb. on the other hand, as nearly everyone knows, you can't fix stupid.

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

when people refuse to ride in vans that don't have seat belts the van operators will install seat belts. the public at large can greatly influence public policy but it takes someone to organize it through social media.

Re: New labels and tax to tackle Thailand's junk food problem

Takiap, yes I agree with you. when my children were very young I would put a variety of raw vegetables in front of them and they could choose what they liked. it didn't matter which ones they ate and it avoided confrontation. eating should be a pleasure and not a chore. actually sugar and salt in mo...

Re: New labels and tax to tackle Thailand's junk food problem

some people have a faster metabolism than others and burn calories quicker and more efficiently. my wife can eat much more than I yet doesn't gain weight while everything I eat turns to fat.

Re: Inheritance Questions

what ever is in your will is what will be carried out. if you make a will in Thailand have it in English and Thai and make sure all parties have a copy and it's notarized. if you don't do that all your property, including your money in Thailand, will go to your wife. everything outside of the countr...

Re: RIP Chuck Berry

i remember Chuck Berry and the first time I heard him, in the mid-fifties, before going to high school, on the radio in the morning. he and Little Richard woke me up, just like ringin' a bell and got me off to school. when I got home I turned on the radio and Charlie Parker said welcome home.

Re: New Hua Hin Immigration and passport office

i just looked up the new location on a map. whoever chose this place should be taken out and shot. of course the 5 yr. old sign on petchkasem will be a big help in locating the new office. this is the stupidest country I've ever lived in. even the people on the outskirts of a village on Majorca in 1...

Re: Locations that serve a "good" Amercian / English breakfast.

the Zappa quote should be attributed to Jon Hendricks who sang it on the album, Lambert, Hendricks and Ross Sing a Song of Basie, recorded in the late '50's. the song was called Little Pony, a tribute to the alto saxaphone player Pony Poindexter. (I think that was the song.)

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station
