Re: Birds of Thailand

All I can say is that we are inundated with birds nests - dozens in our garden and they do make a mess so I’m forever clearing them out after they have been used.

Re: British home comfort food?

Today, the main ingredients of Marmite are glutamic acid-rich yeast extract, with lesser quantities of sodium chloride, vegetable extract, spice extracts and celery extracts, although the precise composition is a trade secret. Although your quote is correct, it is only a brief extract of the full c...

Well, to be honest, Marmite is a gourmet food. :D :duck:


Now, before anyone slams Marmite, take a minute to Google the nutritional value of Marmite. You might be surprised.

I don’t know about nutrition, but for taste I’m in the “love it” category!!

Re: Electric Cars

It was rumoured that there would be an electric PCX available in Thailand this year. If so I certainly would be interested, perhaps linking it to solar panels on the car port.

I’ve bough...

Not sure whether this needs a separate thread or not, but it appears that electric motor bikes are soon to be catching on to the rapid increase in electric cars and there are already some out there that boast awesome performance - albeit at a price, but I’m sure that in a few years we’ll be seeing t...
