Re: Household Drains Backing Up

I have not seen it here, but at home we used what was termed "agriculture pipes". A standard PVC pipe, usually 100mm, but with very fine slots cut into it. I made one here one time by just drilling small holes in a PVC pipe. We bought a couple lengths of that perforated drainfield pipe here in Hua ...

Re: Any vegetarian restaurants in Hua Hin?

I lived 7 years in an off grid counter culture community on the the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State. Most who where there considered themselves strict vegetarians. Some for humanitarian reasons, some for health reasons. Those who were vegetarian for humane reasons avoided all animal flesh but ...

Re: Hotel key card leads to identity of foreigner washed up on Hua Hin beach

handdrummer » Sat May 12, 2018 4:52 pm Maybe there could be a separate column for ranting and as soon as the exchanges went off topic they would be relegated to the "rants" column. Good idea.! After all, the rants, attacks, squabbles, tirades and especially the retorts from those poor souls who fee...

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

At one time I lived with a bank teller who was accurate enuf to balance almost every day. So accurate they made her the vault teller. But it is true even at banks that almost no cashier consistently balances every day, some by a shocking margin. And those little satang can really trip them up. But m...

That's the point - she doesn't consider it a crime. Why pass money to somone who does not even want it. Like Shakespear said. "casting pearls to swine"

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Ooopps.. I see what happened here - I used the word, ”pinching”

From time spent in Australia, can relate that to some, pinching means stealing. But where I am from the idiom “pinching pennies” means being frugal, squeezing them, making them go a long way,,,

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

Did not imply that the girl on the till is taking the coins for herself. The point is that the falang often does not consider the coins valuable enough to even put them into HIS pocket.

Re: Usual cheating at the till, Big C Hua Hin

The point here that seems to be missed, and usually is in these discussions, is that by choosing to live in Thailand we need to accept that we have to accept that life’s basic picture is painted to Thai mindset. Not fat farang mindset. The value and importance of every satang is higher if putting on...

Good video, Thanx.! Now we can DIY them right here at home. And large practical size. But ready-made at B & M is convenient if u don’t have a Kitchen Aid mixer or don’t want to wait until Ocrober.

But If you use decimals it is: N12.556278 x E99.955167 Google maps shud accept that but use a coma instead of ‘x’ and leave off the N & E too Good site for converting Degrees Minutes Seconds (DMS) to Decimal Degrees and visa versa https:...
