Re: Plywood sheet standard sizes

No problems getting it from Global or DoHome or wherever, just need to know the sizes. However, if anyone knows a shop with a 'special' on plywood right now, my inner Jockinese will appreciate it. Ta tam You have the sizes above. Plywood is priced by quality, there are no bargains in plywood, if yo...

Re: Plywood sheet standard sizes

Global House website will help, I've bought 8 x 4 (1220 x 2440) and 1200 x 2400 depending on where it has been sourced.
Different grades/timber species/thickness available depending on the purpose.
Best to shop around as prices vary.

Re: Cashless Society on its Way?

Contactless payments with Debit and Credit cards is now the new normal in the UK. Many businesses do not take cash any more. The Merchant pays approx 1% of the transaction cost, inevitably passed onto the consumer. No matter how small the transaction cost, contactless has been forced upon us. Just a...

Re: Dollar is now completely worthless!

It's s long while since I visited Cambodia, is the Dollar still the currency of choice? Maybe it's now the Yuan or Bht. It's sort of, a dual currency system in place, with the USD being preferred for transactions, with change often given in the Cambodian Riel. The Riel to the USD is has been very s...

Re: Farangs who don’t wear face masks should be kicked out of Thailand says health minister

Who knows, Leicester hasn't been on my travel itinerary, you would have to ask a local. To fog the issue further, on the day I departed Swampy maybe it was "let's all wear a mask day" so, hands up, my observations and conclusions could paint a false picture.
You could always Google it.

Re: Farangs who don’t wear face masks should be kicked out of Thailand says health minister

Back in the Uk now, got out just in time I think, very rarely see a mask. [ Redacted ] When I left 3 weeks ago 90% of travellers and all staff at Swampy were wearing them. Remains to be seen which country's population made the correct decision. 4 months down the road from when I left on the 3rd Mar...

Re: Udon Immigration office lately

100bht is peanuts compared to their cut of the Agents Fees, Piss off the falungs in the office, maybe they will seek an easier route to obtain their Visas.

Re: The source of the coronvirus??

Interesting to see that one statistic that has come to light is the fact that the BAME population of the UK are 4 times more likely to die from the virus. Now is that because they are less able to fight the desease or is it that they outnumber the white population. Or has there been a massive influx...
