Re: where to buy sewing machine accessories (needles etc)

Thanks! I will try the one on PKR near soi 64. Lazada is probably a non-starter, what with having no "own" address and only foreign credit cards.

Re: Recent travel experience buying silk gifts, online check-in and bag locks.

if you're flying out of the states and don't have TSA locks on any of your checked in baggage, after you check it in you can take it the TSA counter and tell them you have left your luggage unlocked and ask them to spin the locks after they check it (or after they decide not to check it). Did this a...

Re: phone blockers

I sure vehicle manufacturers could install some sort of signal blockers that kick in once you turn the ignition on. Of course, there may be times when drivers or their passengers need to make a potentially life saving emergency call, but I am sure the number of people who are alive today because th...

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

if it they can be found in Holland at a reasonable price I'd be happy to bring them over for you next month but I only know the ones Nereus refers to which is like a metal lamp housing with a polycarbonate cover, like the one in this link https://www.lampdirect.nl/philips-tcw060-1x-tl-d-58w-hf I hav...

Re: Sportsmanship.

I'd hate to go back in time. I'd be disappointed that things weren't as I imagined them. The memory of what never was, is called the "good old days." totally agree, plus we all have a bit of a habit of reminiscing positively about the nice/better things in the past while blocking out or forgetting ...

Re: New pedestrian overpass for Market Village

If you use the next bridge, the one by the entrance to the Catholic school, don't pay too much attention to the riser height of the steps as you'll then knock your head on a concrete beam! At 5 foot 2 hitting my head is not something that ever happens to me, till I used the pedestrian overpass at B...

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

the only vehicle I'd feel safe in in Thailand is one that's parked up (preferably in a drive way a good way back from the road)

We cook a lot of things in it. same here, an air fryer for most things, and a pump bottle with olive oil for the things that must be fried in oil and we use a tiny fraction of the oi...

Re: Sportsmanship.

I saw footage of this on BBC Breakfast this morning, what I found shocking was not that the other runner didn't stop to help, I was astounded that there were about 8 members of the public just standing there looking at him, not even attempting to help the fallen runner. I don't blame the other runne...

Re: nonstick cooking spray

I just use a spray bottle that my hairspray comes in, any spray (pump) bottle will do... rinse it out well, leave it to dry, then fill it from my big bottle of olive oil. And you do use LOADS less oil this way
