Re: Epson Printer Repair

if you're not satisfied with their service you can try the computer shop next to The Baguette, just before soi 41. park at Golden Place, it's easier than finding a place on the street. they've repaired my HP printer and my Dell lap top. Bring your wife to explain what you want.

Re: Thai Navy to buy three Chinese submarines

Re: Seen Space, Soi 19

playing music, TV's , etc. at a loud volume is a feature of 3rd. world countries, that way the inhabitants get to yell at each other and their neighbors don't have to eavesdrop to know what is being said next door. either that or all 3rd worlderites are going deaf.

Re: The scourge of Facebook

Big Boy, could you expand on that comment, "I have no problem with censorship."? that's the stock in trade of all totalitarian governments used to control the population and stop any unfavorable information from being published.

Re: Kan Air starting new route between Hua Hin and Chiang Mai
