Re: The Bitcoin and cryptocurrency thread

Thank goodness the Thai government have come to their senses re. the ridiculous taxing. Feel sorry for the exchanges like Bx. though that have probably lost a lot of customers in the interim.

Re: Hello from newbie

Hi Michaelpum, Welcome to the forum. Do you really want to learn more about horses or houses? I can tell the difference between a palomino and piebald but that's probably not what you need. :wink: Feel free to ask any questions on the board and share your ideas - we're a friendly and helpful bunch. ...

Re: Cancer - no longer the bogeyman?

Thank you, DM. My twin sister is currently going through the process of having some lymphoma zapped with radiotherapy. They've caught it early and the quality (and speed) of care from the NHS has been brilliant. Her future is looking bright. It sounds like you're coping well with the treatment, and ...

Re: One day car hire

Hi Takiap,

Thank you so much for the very kind offer. Mr.VS has finally managed to find one via Rentalcars.com. We'll pick it up from their office near Villa Supermarket. It cost a smidgen over 1,000 baht.

Thanks, once again, for offering to help.

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

But I think possibly that they should legally have sought parents' permission though, and keeping it from them (as they seem to have done) was not in any way the correct choice...The result was fine, the best; whether the secrecy was justified I'm not sure. I see what you say, but the parents are n...

Re: One day car hire

Yep. I agree, but that's the average price per day if you rent for more than 3 days. Mr.VS is still on the case and contacting other rental places. If I were a car rental place, I'd rather have a car out for the day for 1,000 baht than having it sit in the car park. I'll never work out the 'logic' o...

Re: One day car hire

Thanks for that BB. Just contacted them, and, as you say, a lovely quick reply. Unfortunately, they do three days minimum. :(

Re: One day car hire

Thank you Thistle.

We've found them on line and sent an email to them. Got a blank automated reply.

Sending them another email. We're happy to pay 1,000 baht, and we won't be doing any more than 100 kms (just visiting friends in the area).

One day car hire

We need to rent a car for this Wednesday afternoon in Hua Hin for one day . Looking at the car rental places in Hua Hin they seem to want a minimum of 3 days.

Anyone know of a one-day rental place?

Thanks.

A wild guess, but was it after the assassination of a president. Don't know which one.

Limerick Thread

How about a Limerick thread. One person writes the first line (e.g. There was a young man from Hua Hin), another poster writes the next line, and so on. The person to write the final line (and it's shown in full) gets to write the starter for the next limerick. Once the next line has been written it...
