And this is a bunch of overly dramatic horse pucky as you can find all of those dishes mentioned in the article ...

The operators on 94 are usually 10 Bt higher /liter and you will NEVER get a smile. You WILL get petrol spilled all over everything as they whip the nozzle out of the tank.

The internet thingy from a guy who has been there and says it's "across from the downtown gas station" or the Google internet thingy (Even has a map) that locates the place nowhere near a downtown gas station?

Re: Road Closure Soi 88 Railway Crossing to Station

The past week or so the traffic flow has IMO been better that it has ever been. Some cones, some barriers, and some guys with brand new whistles have done wonders. Now that the final layout has started to show itself I think that it is going to be a total cock-up and who can be surprised about that ...

Re: Minivan, bus and road accidents

" If airlines hired and supervised their cockpit crew like van companies obtain and schedule drivers, there would be plenty of plane crashes. "

Re: Blood Donation - This Sunday

Anyone who might be thinking of trying this on should really check the Red Cross of Thailand regulations as to whom is eligible to donate. They are very different from our home countries particularly in regard to the age of people who may give.

Re: Pet Show, Market Village

I forgot about the event being held so I went to MV today as I like the place on the 2nd floor that does the dim sum and I did not smell anything. I even walked about on the first floor and took a look at the birds and reptiles and no smell. Maybe my nose is no good.
