Willie Bell was at left back and his tackle on Derek(aka Shirley) Temple was so high he managed to crack a couple of our winger's ribs and...

(Talking about my “doing something useful” seems to be her favourite topic of conversation.) She is "only thinking of me," she sa...

I agree on the "latest?" "Ritz" offering, the alternatives were a cheesy biscuit made by "Jack and Jill" which have been around for yonks. In fact a certain bar owner of Welsh extraction and who ran the "Red Dragon" in "Farang Alley" lived on J & J's as he wasn't too keen on Thai food. His wife woul...

Sad News indeed, my wife, who spends much of her time at Wat Ban Thad and in fact only moved from there to the Temple at Sawang Daeng Din only last week. She will be visiting Wat Ban Thad today to pay her respects. She spends time at both Temples helping in the kitchens preparing meals for the monks...

The funds should arrive between Christmas and New year. Does anyone out there know of this Orphanage or have a name/address of the establishm...
Aussies didn't win the Ashes, merely retained them. Semantics perhaps, but England won the Series AND The World Cup, just watched a stirring "Last Night of The Proms" so feeling a tad patriotic, not to worry it'll soon wear off once BOJO gets his A INTO G,plus of course there's another Major Sportin...
A fine send off indeed. Pleased to see so many regulars in attendance. Even managed a Skype link up to New Plymouth so that Deane could be a part of "the Wake" Well done to Chris, Mike and crew for putting on a splendid buffet, the wee Dot and Doris was the crowning glory. I'm sure the Big Man was s...
