Re: Sukhumvit (Bangkok) Through The Years

Pete, thanks that article brought back some memories. Makes me think I should be digging out my box of old travel photos. The Russians were not so blatant as the Americans with their CIA office headquaters. Instead it was suggested by some that the old Aeroflot office on the corner of Suriwong and P...

Re: Design Ideas for Thai Style House

Sadly many folks go about building a new house in a back to front manner. You really should start making observations of your land first and designing the house to suit, not trying to make the land suit the house. Try visiting your plot at different times of the day different days of the week and in...

Re: Hua Hin water shortage

I'm not yet living in Thailand. Can someone explain to me the whole water tank thing? The rental villas I've looked at have water tanks. What is their purpose? How are they filled? How are they drained? Is the water stored inside these tanks suitable for drinking (not that I would), showering and w...

Re: Tips for recycling and reducing plastic use in Thailand

Isn't making recycled plastic brooms just kicking the can down the road so to speak.
As they wear down they will be releasing just more micro plastic particles into the environment.

Re: Japan Airlines plane in flames on the runway at Tokyo's Haneda Airport

The clean up job is going to be a major nightmare considering the ferocity of the fire and the dispersion of all those exotic materials down the runway.
And hopefully the passengers all got away without inhaling any of it too.

You can count me in too.
BTW, I voluntarily contribute to support a free music station. The site was also near rock bottom some time ago and it's been brought back from the dead.

Re: Dragon Boat Racing, Khao Tao 2023

The PBS TV guys setting up at the lake told us that with the strong winds sweeping up the lake there yesterday swamping the boats was a possibility especially if side on to wave chop. Around at the entrance to the canal inlet near the temple was an absolute churning mess of wild white water.Let's ho...

Re: Bangkok Airways applies now weighing passengers before boarding

Back in the 70's I was boarding a flight from Kathmandu to Rangoon. As it was a warmer than usual day the pilot needed to reduce the payload in order to get enough thrust for take off. He came thru the cabin weighing each of us and adding and subtracting stuff on his trusty slide rule and in the end...
