Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

The game was as poor as the opening ceremony...really Robbie Williams?!? On another sad note I was way off with my prediction and really thought KSA would put up more of a fight....lesson learned :tsk: Tonight some good games, Uruguay vs. Egypt (with Mo starting) and the highlight Portugal vs. Spain...

Re: Hua Hin Bike Week 2018

Well the graphic artist of the poster failed in promoting the most important point - the date! I still haven't figured it out and if wasn't for BB, I would still think it is on Dec 30,1???? Back to the drawing board AOD Vampire.....

Anyway, should be another great event!

Re: Thailand tourist slump continues

AS far as getting info-- the hotels hate to admit that theyare not busy and exaggerate their numbers. A friend of mine has a Thai wife who is an assistant manager of the room cleaning staff at a 5star hotel. You have to differentiate between the hotels. Branded Hotels cannot and will not exaggerate...

Money walks in one door (prize money, or having sponsors to please), sportsmanship walks out of the other. Golf, cricket, don''t even talk about football. I don't know about this case, the Scot anyway apparently refused aid at some point because he wanted to finish the race. I guess another 'profes...

The old resident band of London Bar moved to Sugar Land which is located across from Panama Club. I used to be a fairly regular at London Bar but have to agree it's just not the same anymore.....
