Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Re: 42nd Antique Car Contest

It was advertised on their FB page but remember it was a Thai event, they had no interest in Farangs attending. Just like so many events here.

Re: UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions

Strange I can open the article and other on Financial times and I do not subscribe. If you search Mr. Google for "UK Retirees to face cuts in Pensions" you will find lots of articles on the subject.

Re: Where to buy Grass Seed

Was actually looking for somewhere local in HH, I know I can buy turf sods, squares about 500x500 just down the road from my house but that is not the way I would like to do it. The reason I bought from there is I couldn't find anything here! My neighbour gets his brought from the UK when guests co...

Re: Dutchman Jumps From Hua Hin Hotel

A person has taken their own life possibly due to stress or depression, who knows. This is not somethin...

I have some patchy areas in my lawn and am looking to buy grass seed. Been to a number of garden centres and farm supply shops , none have seed, a few offered to sell me lawn but I don't want that.
