Re: The Rugby Thread

Well, the lesson from the first half is "Don't ever listen to what Pete predicts...." :laugh: All Blacks look sluggish and timing off. Australia looks sharp. I would expect a lot of NZ bench coming on early in the second half. Pete :cheers:

Re: Renew US Passport by Mail

It's mailed from the Bangkok embassy via registered EMS. We've done it three times now and hasn't been a problem. Pete :cheers: Edit: For clarification we haven't done the "renew by mail" but the normal renewal requiring a visit to the embassy. New passports under that process can be mailed locally ...

Re: Great service at immigration

Is it? I don't remember in what thread "letters" were discussed? Seems odd though as they are sitting there comparing old to new, and immigration offices have chip readers these days, so there is zero chance of identity info changing. I did mine in Rayong, but back in 2012 so perhaps before the time...

Re: Wildlife hunters must face justice

This has dropped off the radar - does that mean they have quietly walked away from any prosecution? No, I read that the big boss, Premchai Karnasuta, goes to trial sometime in 2019. I forget the exact month but if I come across the article again I'll post. I think it was in the BKK Post last week s...

I think that, and the case and the chicken bone man, there are some mental issues in play. Similar to the local guy near me who walks dow...
