I can only speak from personal experience but this is the step by step procedure that I used to succesfully quit the habit permanen...

Re: Smoking ex-pats

I started smoking when I was 13 and still smoke. Can't you understand that smoking is not only an addiction (for some it is) but it's also a pleasure. This may be the most deeply ingrained of all rationalizations associated with smoking as it has a solid basis in the following flawed denial logic. ...

Re: Investment Rates

johnjar, I did the same thing. I knew that I didn't know enough to be in the market and couldn't afford the learning curve. I found a wonderful FA and I've been retired and living off a modest investment for 13 yrs. and expect it to carry me through to the end with enough left to support my wife un...

Drain flies in the bathroom

We have drain flies in one of our bathrooms in a new house. Despite extensive investigation (masking all possible inlets etc) we cannot be sure where the nest is and how the flies get into the bathroom after hatching. Once inside the bathroom, the flies are attracted to light where they congregate o...

Re: Tv providers in Hua Hin

There seems to be an inordinate number of these TV boxes on the market at the moment. Does any one have a definitive list with pros and cons?

Re: Where my kids can get smimming lesson ?

1200 is for one on one for 1 hour which is too long to keep the kids attention.

We started with 2 months private lessons once a week before joining a group.

Agree not cheap but the results are there.

You can always stop when the child is proficient.

Other option is to look for a Thai teacher.

Re: Where my kids can get smimming lesson ?

Give Mat a call.

Many families trust Mat with their kids swimming lessons.

We have for the past 2 years.

Re: Wild Boar in the Suburbs

It's not uncommon for a family of boar to be attached to a temple and become domesticated (to a degree).

There is a family attached to the temple at the end of Soi 116.

One of the males frequently visits a nearby house and is quite tame.

Re: BBC journalist faces five years in jail for reporting Thai fraud

Since
Pratuan, the lawyer, admitted to notarising Rance’s signature without him being present.

I assume that a counter claim has been filed?

Re: TRIGGER FINGER and TENDONITIS

I fixed my trigger finger without surgery by wearing one of these skin coloured finger splints for 3 months

Wearing the correct size is critical, make sure you follow the instructions when measuring the effected finger (s).

Re: Moving in before paying for house - your thoughts?

Why wait 30 days? Offer to go to the land department tomorrow to complete the deal. Or have I missed something?
