Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

Indeed, they don't even need to leave the airport! I was into Swampy and was in the downstairs food court not so long ago and my guess that a couple of planes had landed not only from China but Russia as well (?). Honest to Gawd you needed a whip and chair to have handled that mob. The yelling and ...

Re: BBC I player

VPN is fine but the law changed last year in the UK. I believe you now have to register to watch Iplayer progs. They share your profile with the TV Licensing Authority with the aim to catch people watching without a TV licence. Quite new and not seen any reports of the effectiveness of the system. ...

Re: Death of a Pet

I'm very sorry for the loss of Rocky. We have lost 2 of our 3 this year, it's tough! Regards Holly missing him, when we had two cats and one had to be put to sleep, our vet recommended that we let our remaining cat have a look at her dead 'brother'. I found it quite strange (to say the least). But s...

Re: Driver's licence health rules to become stricter

as well as empty hospital car parks, the roads should be empty as well. The W.H.O estimates high blood pressure to affect 20% of Thai women and 25% of Thai men over the age of 25 (compared to slightly less than 1 in 3 worldwide)

it's one way to tackle road congestion I suppose

Re: Driver’s licence health rules to become stricter

I don't understand this at all. They surely can't mean every single person with high bp gets a driving ban? What's their definition of high? Surely if it's the same as any western GP's definition then that would include 50%+ of westerners over 50? Our roads here would be empty! And as for myocardial...

Re: Thai women second fattest in Asia

are Thai men getting fatter in similar proportions to the Thai women? I don't know if that made sense? What i mean is....well in the west it's both, right? Everyone is getting fatter, men and women. Is that the same in Thailand? Or are the Thai men staying slim and it's just the Thai women piling on...

Re: Cocktail bars

Many apologies I think I was still in shock over the father Teds romantic Irish breakfast/cocktail bar revelation No worries. I feel the same about Father T's. Fine for a pub, but not my idea (at all!) of somewhere special for someone special on special date. I would decapitate my husband if he too...
