Villages vaccinated after eating Rabies infected buffalo

Surely these people are not that stupid? They live in a small village and to have buffaloes in the first place indicates that at least some of them are farmers. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………… Villagers vaccinated after eating rabies-infected buffalo https://www.bangkokpo...

Re: Weather in Hua Hin & Thailand

As an FYI, Hua Hin now has its own radar loop. See below link. Looking at the center of the source, the device(s) must be in one of the Thai Navy buildings/sites directly adjacent to the beach.

Re: Hua Hin airport due for upgrade

The flight path does not go over the Palace. In fact, the airspace is a 24 hour restricted space. Runway 16 is approached from the north, and mostly in use as the take off direction also, involves a left turn away from the coast after airborne. The reciprocal runway is 34(basically in a northly dire...

As Thailand is affected by this, I guess it is relevant. (didn't know this: Italian motorcycle business MV Agusta that Harley acquired in 2008) …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………...

Re: Electrical installation advice.

The problem in this country is not always just the equipment being used. The installers are obliged to use what is available in the market, and MOST of it is of good international quality. The days of bare knife main switches and screw in ceramic fuses are long gone. Look at the photo of the consume...

Re: Electrical installation advice.

I suggest you look at this site, http://www.crossy.co.uk/wiring/index.html. It is written by an English electrician living here, and is very informative and clear. Yes, it is a good site, but has not been updated recently from what I can see. His reference to ELCB's is well out of date. There are b...

Re: Electrical installation advice.

The earthing wire seems to be the thick black cable in no. 3 of the upper bar. But only one circuit (blue) is connected with the ground. I think what you can see at the top of the box is supposed to be the earthing bar. The neutral bar is barely visible behind the main switch. They probably ran out...

Re: Electrical installation advice.

Need to look at it to be sure. All the circuit breakers appear to be 32 amp rating, cannot see what the main switch is. No earthing wire visible, and all the neutrals appear to have a Thai type connection, rather than be terminated in the neutral bar. Some of the breakers have 3 circuits on them, bu...
