The forum still has a few sponsor links pointing to another resource that has not been converted to https yet. It's a very minor issue Lev will address short...

Re: Hua Hin Forum software upgrade

Mine does the same thing because of my bookmark which had the www address. Change that bookmark and put in the new one from Norseman's link and it should hold and you won't see the www any longer. Pete :cheers:

Edit: Both www and no www works and you'll still see the forum page you're going to.

Re: Europe travel

I been told that wearing tan khaki long pants is a dead giveaway that you're a Yank. Beware! :laugh: I used to wear them all over the place there in the 80's and it seemed like locals were wearing them also. So, things have changed or the whole thing is BS. Pete :cheers:

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

You're right, Tofu by itself is a tasteless substance. The Japanese serve it many different ways though and it can be very tasty and a normal side dish with a Japanese meal. Pete :cheers:

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

Last night was Japanese night this week and the problem was not the tofu as I had none, but used soy sauce. Little if any sleep, disgusted and up after 3 hours. Noticed some minor lip swelling last night. Perhaps not the first time but never noticed it before and was alert to it because of one of th...

Re: Trouble sleeping after Japanese food

MSG. It is in many Japanese dishes. It can keep you awake, cause headaches and diarrhea. That stuff is everywhere over here. They shovel it in by the spoonful in Thai weetiel (sp) soup and dry, and most all Thai food. The same in HK, China, Singapore etc. If MSG is my problem then everything has to...

Re: Snakes in the house and garden

They, unlike many snakes, do not run away therefore it's easy to walk up on one which is not good. We had one last year that the dog found. Relocated him easily. I've read where they are small, but deadly. Thankfully they haven't found a way through Bangkok yet and into the East. Our problem over h...
