Re: VIP - Edinburgh Military Tattoo 2018 - Top Secret DrumCorps

That's some serious shite!!!!!
Thank you for posting.
The difference between when I played in drum corps and now is like a single engine plane compared to a jet. The technical development is astounding.

If you want to hear where Aretha's heart was listen to the Amazing Grace album. Regardless of your religious or non- religious feelings this is the real deal.

Re: Renew US Passport by Mail

Yes, works fine, and I've never had a problem with ThaiPost, and excellent service. You could alway opt to pick up at Embassy. The Thai Post Office has "lost" a package from the US, delivered another one to the wrong address that ended up in customs and 100+km drive to pick it up in Petchaburi with...

Re: Borderless Account of Transferwise

Get a Schwab account and never pay for transfers again. Every source I've read said you must be in the US to open an account. IIRC you also need a current proof of address such as a utility bill.

Re: Borderless Account of Transferwise

I use Citibank US and transfer to Citibank Thailand. Each transaction costs $35 but I can transfer up to $80,000 (if I ever have that much money) a day. I transfer twice a year so It costs me $70 for a years expenses. I've not found a better rate.
