Re: Why can't Farangs stop complaining?

Let it be, enjoy life and stop complaining! If you can’t do that go back to your own country and good riddance. I did just that two and a half years ago and it's the best decision I ever made.

Re: Interesting things from the WWW

Time travel back 70 years. Photos of England and France around D-Day that fade between 1944 and 2014. Just click on the photo to see the same scene exactly 70 years apart. Pretty cool...

Thailand is still in the 21st Century very uncivilized and third-world.

We lived there (as a married couple with 2 dogs) on a $3200 per month and it wasn't quite enough for the lifestyle we wanted (so we eventually spent through our savings). We liked to eat out several times per week...
