Re: How the internet is changing the way we grieve

Not quite on topic but closely related.
Is it still the custom in Briain that if you choose to send your condolences to the family you MUST do it with a hand-written note.

Re: Great service at immigration - transferring visa to new passport

My experience is that it is one of those things that differ from officer to officer and day to day. From a previous experience in China, after it was done I stapled the 2 PPtogether and carried old and new for over a year.

Re: Hua Hin Restaurant News

I know this site does not welcome reviews, I would love to hear what members of our German community think of it, although I guess you can assess that by driving past in the early evening and noting how busy it is.

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Surgery, Radiotherapy, Chemotherapy ---- The answer is probably not in these three but in Immunotherapy, getting the body to recognize and reject cancer cells as it does with other invaders. Then the trio of treatments that we use now will go the way of bleeding and blistering.

Re: Hua Hin airport due for upgrade

Isn't the proximity of the Royal Palace and the fact that the flight path from the runway goes over it part of the reluctance to have more flights?
