You have a point on the red meat, haven't tasted it yet but have never had a steak from Tesco that was better than shoe leather. Please tell me if you know where I can get that and I will surely check it out...Thanks Last time in BKK I bought some meats (lamb and ribeye steak) from Villa. Prices ar...

I live in Southern California (for now) not Thailand, but I've followed, and was interested, in comments here. In So Cal we are a true melting pot of different cultures, mainly Hispanic (primarily Mexican) and Asian (not sure the primary country, I think Korea). My first wife was from Korea, I'm cur...

Is it me? I can't imagine not wearing a seat belt when I'm in a car. I always get a bit frantic trying to find the seat belt when I'm in a taxi. The top 'plug-in' bit is sometimes there, but the 'socket' is nowhere to be seen. I was brought up with seat belts (I was born in the 60s), I feel really ...

Not in Thailand, but I come from the Northeast of the states, with tough winters.

I've lived in Southern California now a number of years, and this past winter finally bought, and wore, a coat.

I think as the years go on your body changes and aclimatizes (sp?)

Thanks Rowdy :thumb: ,

We met with a Doctor and it looks like a little one is definately in the works.

I'm still working on a 2-3 year plan for living full time in Thailand, and the numbers help in potential budgets!

Thanks Again

A little variation here. I'm not in Thailand, but have been with my Thai (now) wife about 4+ years. Even here she has gotten me away from the fancy California restaurants, in fact away from most restaurants. No new gadgets, I'm keeping my older explorer that has no payments, etc... So maybe it's not...

Retirement Activities

I've often been asked, 'what do you do now that you're retired?'

Well, I have a chemistry background and one of the things I enjoy the most is turning beer, vodka and wine into urine.

And, I'm pretty darn good at it!! Thank God I paid attention in school!

Our last trip I was in line and the line next to me was for diplomats, special guests, etc (an event was going on). When the line next to me emptied, a Japanese visitor jumped out of our line to there. I was actually the next to be served, and the Lady immigration officer pointed the Japanese visito...

Even with the availability of fresh fruit, I usually add frozen fruit instead of ice cubes, or fill a cube tray with your favorite fruit juice.

A dollop of peanut butter adds some good protein, and, to me, some good flavor as well.

Nice post. As a CPA I see lots of businesses here in the states. Some are doomed to failure because the owner wants to run the place for them, not for their customers. But many restaurants (and other businesses) are trying to make it, and welcome the constructive criticisms. Plus as was said, when y...

Here in California there is a statement on the menu if the restaurant charges a service charge (usually on parties of 8 or more). If stated, I accept it, or don't return. I, too, am a big tipper, especially for good, friendly, service. Like you BB, my wife is an ex server and tends to be generous. L...
