Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

I've noticed that some of the local food vendors have started using traditional packaging, I've had a few takeout meals over the last couple of weeks that have been wrapped in banana leafs.

Re: Junta to tax foreign online shopping platforms

This is starting to happen everywhere, New Zealand just announced a similar law and in America, internet sellers are going to be responsible for charging State taxes wherever they're from.

Re: Thai officials believe 12 boys missing in cave are alive

Now I'm getting upset (yet again! :banghead: ) The boys rescued last night are fine. They are in the hospital eating pad krapao, but they have them in a quarantine room and haven't let their parents see them yet!..... I'm not sure Pete, if I was that age and got myself stuck in a cave for a fortnig...

They've been "Stoned Head" since 2013, so therefore in this 5th year anniversary of the thread we declare them sober and un-stoned! :wink: :laugh: Pete :cheers: The last time I spoke to the keyboard player, he was on the wagon so perhaps the name change is justified!

I've used Yahoo for about 20 years for personal stuff but that's only about once a week, work goes through a company intranet system.

Someone serving Taco Bell there now? :D
Wasn't BB complaining about a bad smell there recently?
Seriously though, that picture above looks more like something igniting in the drainage, maybe leaking petrol and a discarded cigarette.

Re: How Do You Receive Your Thai TV?

Even the villagers in Mrs BB's village don't get their Thai TV by traditional methods. At least, that has always been what I thought - every house seems to have a huge dish that moves mechanically - I suppose they may be receiving the signal direct. They had a lot of those dishes in my partners vil...

Re: How Do You Receive Your Thai TV?

I don't really watch TV but a couple of months ago a friend bought a TV antenna for his girlfriend and wanted to try it, so I hooked it up to a TV I use for music videos in the garden and it got very good reception on one channel. That was just a small indoor antenna, not one on the roof. We used to...

Re: Global Warming 2

Why? Are the mainstream media trying to sell alternative energy? For years now many in the mainstream media have been spreading myths about renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. It’s about ideology, politics and the protection of vested interests. In other words, follow the money. If you...
