Re: British tourists in nasty brawl minutes after seeing in the New Year at Hua Hin

Ah...the Brits abroad...pathetic.
Says a lot about a drinking/football hooligan culture.....one of the reasons I left the country in the first place.
I'm looking forward to the world cup, to see the Russians give them a damn good pasting again!

Re: Chinese tourists (and their habits) surge into Thailand

The Chinese tourists shouldn't be allowed near any wildlife - they have absolutely no idea how to conduct themselves and don't follow rules. Can I back this up with evidence? Yes. We visited a national park in Nepal a few years ago. There was a bunch of Chinese tourists staying - much to the disgus...

Re: Long term tick and flea treatment for dogs.

I use 'tick collars'....bought from the vet close to the traffic lights, near the palace. I have 2 dogs that used to suffer badly from tick infections. Since an initial injection and continual use of the collars, the hounds have been totally tick free for a couple of years now, and their condition i...

Re: Chinese tourists at Majestic Creek

I too, was there..... :guns: The one thing I came away with after the laughable display was, that, although we sometimes moan about the Thai's, and their behaviour, the bunch of rude/arrogant/ignorant pigs I saw that day, reinforced my respect for the Thai people as 'lovely' people overall. At least...

Re: Koh Tao police to reopen death case of Belgian tourist

I've commented on this subject before. Having just read the article in the daily mirror makes my blood boil. How these human crap get away with this leaves me furious. Thai shit! There is no future for this pathetic country unless things change.....and that won't happen quickly. Especially when it i...

Re: Education reforms as elusive as ever in Thailand

As an overview......This is the result of 80 years of essentially military rule.
A population let down by the baboons in charge.
As I have said before, an Army is for the defense of a country....DEFINITELY NOT for running it.
Good luck people!

With the tape player you need an A/D converter. I've found one in my hardware cupboard. You can have it if you want it.
Another very kind offer.....I'll send you a PM too....
Many thanks.
