Its important to remember Facebook, Twitter, etc, are not governmental agencies. Therefore have all the rights to censor whatever is put on their sites.

Re: Songkran 2017

My Songkran celebration consisted of a failed attempt to wash my bike.

Garden hose split and sprayed water everywhere.

Wash bucket bottom broke, dumping its contents as soon as I lifted it after filling.

First a polite request to move her feet. Second a warning about broken toes. Third, broken toes.

Jalapeno Seeds

Makro and Villa rarely have jalapeno peppers. So, I'm thinking of trying to grow my own.

Where can I buy the seeds, planter box, and potting soil?

Engineering and Science

We watch Thai news every day. They never have any Engineering and Science related things.

Just Entertainment, Fashion, Farming, etc.

How do kids get inspired to achieve if there are no role models?

Never happened to me at Hua Hin immigration. They've always been honest and professional in all dealings.

I don't suppose the tradition of dumping sugar in every dish would have anything to do with it.

Re: Top high schools 'enrolling too many students'

40 or more students per class has been common practice in the US since the 70s.

Vocational training at the high school level has all but been eliminated. If you want to learn how to work with your hands, you have to pay for a private trade school, after you have graduated from high school.

That's a serious journey for some. Me, I guess I got lucky, I lived 20 minutes from the...
