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

Sadly, one of those daily deaths occurred on the main road at soi 6 yesterday morning. I went past shortly after it had happened and I only need to see the motorbike to know that someone must surely have been killed. I'm not sure if there was more than one person on the bike when it got hit, but I k...

Re: VCR Tape to DVD or Digital media

Hello BB, No is the short answer. I was waiting for Major Bloodnok to get back to me, re-machine he was checking up on, but he never did. I'll keep my eye on this thread to see if anyone has any ideas. I have just the machine you are looking for, but............................ I have no idea where...

Re: 5,000 baht bounty for farang who beat teen toilet attendant in Phuket

I seriously doubt this happened because of the tourist not wanting to pay 10 baht. In fact, I don't even believe he had any intention of using a toilet. To me, it looks like he arrived there for a different reason altogether, and probably with backup, the other guy who sat his ass down in the chair....

Re: Eating cheese does not raise risk of heart attack or stroke, study finds

vegetables and spring water sounds better than mcdonalds and kfc . yes, yes, I know there are more choices than that. Maybe better than McDonalds because they still have not learned how to make a decent burger, but I would much rather have KFC and a large beer instead of vegetables and spring water...

Re: Eating cheese does not raise risk of heart attack or stroke, study finds

I guess what I'm trying to say is eat what you like, drink what you like - living "healthy" does'nt make you live longer, it just feels like it!! :cheers: :cheers: I totally agree. Also, while the study mentioned in this thread was funded by pro-dairy institutes, there have been several other studi...

Re: Pregnant British woman killed in scooter crash in Thailand

We of course don't know the exact details, but in this case I'm inclined to think that the lorry driver was not to blame. It seems to me the guy on the bike failed to check in his mirror or over his shoulder before moving out into the lane next to where he was riding.

RIP to Mom and Baby

Re: Looking for full time maid/nanny

Hi all Is anyone still looking for a maid/nanny? I'm only asking because a mate's wife is currently looking for employment. Her English is not perfect, but certainly good enough to communicate. I can also confidently say that she is reliable and definitely not afraid to work. Oh, and she can cook bo...

they just put up with it because of their religion. An old lady in the little fishing village next to our condo took a cleaver over to the Hotel nearest us one night because she just couldn't stand the noise any more.

Re: Commercial Party Houses Operating in Residential Developments

BB, your last post sums it up perfectly, especially the bit where you say the noise just becomes background noise after a while. At least, this is how it is for me, although obviously there are many will think otherwise. I have spent most of my life working in a very noisy environment, so perhaps th...

Re: Commercial Party Houses Operating in Residential Developments

We have two "party houses" in our little soi. One is rented out by the actual owner, while the other is rented out by some or other property management company which also rents outs about three party houses in a development next door to us. The strange thing is, I have never yet heard any load noise...
