Re: Forum behavior

I think some of it has to do with frustration and fear (yes, actual fear) about the state of the world and the future, as well as personal circumstances in some cases. There is little to nothing any of us can do about what we see going on around us on the world stage, and for some there is little to...

Re: Boy, 3, dies after school building fall

They used to be damn good places before the new ownership and expansions. Great doctors and very reasonably priced for the expat. We don't generate enough income now I guess as we're not "medical tourists". :banghead:

With the new timings it is not even possible to have a day trip in either direction.

Boy, 3, dies after school building fall

The only reason I post this story is because of what I have placed in bold and underlined below. If the reporting and use of English translation from Thai is correct, the law has been broken in a profound way. If an emergency situation the receiving hospital must admit and treat the patient. If a pe...

For me it has been hot season temps in the east the past two days. Burn the skin off your back if out without a shirt. 36-37c easy. Pete :cheers:

Re: Hua Hin - Pattaya ferry project news and updates

There hasn't been any update on this for many months now. Is it still running on a regular basis, reliable, few breakdowns etc? Hopefully someone has been using it and is up to date with news about it. We are in the low season again and perhaps the frequency will change. Any news appreciated. Pete :...
