^ Small bit of trivia is that Thai passports were printed in Thai and French up to 1977 when they were changed to Thai and English. Now you know. :D Pete :cheers:

Re: 49 missing as boat overturns in seas off Thailand

All 47 bodies from the Phuket boat accident have now been recovered. The Thai owner of the vessel and the chief engineer (not specified if design or maintenance) were arrested yesterday.

Re: 2018 Football World Cup News and Prediction Tournament

I'm going to wait for the final audit per below before we declare a pool winner. Bamboo is listed as first and that would mean 1 point "results" have more value than 3 point "exacts". I personally don't understand that thinking, but if that's their system, that's their system. Lets wait and see. Pet...

I'm not even sure what year it is. They both retire in about 20 years so perhaps they'll sell it then. :idea:

Re: The Car Challenge

No, its not a Sunbeam, Pete. But your daughter sure has a rare car there! Yes, they drive it and clean it about once a month and then it sits waiting for the value to go ever higher. They've had it for about 10 years already. I should have taken a photo of the engine. First one I've seen in decades...

Re: Pattaya Marathon 2018

I don't do them... :laugh: , the wife does. She just did 42km at the Thai Marines Sattahip last Sunday (which turned out to be a memorial run for the cave diver who died as he participated in all the running events over here, she knew him), so no way her body is ready for another so soon. It takes h...

Re: The Car Challenge

If that red one is a Sunbeam Tiger he's done something to it, or it's a fiberglass body kit. Look at the fender areas over the wheels bubbled out, and the door frame dips. That's not factory standard IMO. Pete :cheers:
