Re: Water pump for sale

No financial interest in this. Just wanted to mention that I have almost the exact same Mitsu pump running my garden watering system on 3/4 rai for the past 11 years now, and it's still going strong. It's a great deal if you need a pump for house or garden purposes. Pete :cheers:

Re: The Rugby Thread

The Japanese team couldn't make it three in a row. They need another two seasons. Look for them as contenders in 2021 if their financing holds out. Pete :cheers:

Not the result I wanted. A difficult match in wet weather. Crusaders on their game, Hurricanes far off their game. Pete :cheers:

LINE Mobile

Seems to be a new player on the block competing with AIS, DTAC and True. I didn't realize LINE had fully entered that market. I know no more than that but if anyone uses them as primary mobile provider please let us know your experience. Pete :cheers:

Re: Pros and Cons of Colonization

My personal feeling is that Colonization will bring with it organization and a rules based society, generation after generation. That never happened here and therefore the differences you saw concerning rules of the road and driving behaviour. I would imagine the driving in Burma is much better than...
