Re: What's Happened To The Water in Hua Hin?

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

BB..Your not wrong there, poisonous or not it really went after our dog but he got it and shook it in a split second game over.

Re: Bitcoin mining and cryptocurrency thread

The big boys will be starting their old pump and dump trading again like they did with the pound sterling, and some Asian currencies in the 90's, or maybe that's what's going on with bitcoin now.
