Re: Bicycle Business

The name of the bike shop you're talking about is Bike Corner. The shop is a Probike (Bangkok) dealer. If he can' help you out there's a bike shop just across Prajak Rd from Miss Cake Bakery who might be willing to take on the project. The shop is located right next to a Singer sewing machine shop. ...

Re: European Kitchen Suppliers

We had our kitchen designed to our specs and built/installed by Decor's Choice nearly 15 years ago when the term "toe kick and plumbing p traps" were unheard of here. These terms and others were well known to Decor's Choice. My Thai-American wife and I returned to Thailand to retire and knew exactly...

Re: PO Box in Udon

We've had a PO box at the main PO for about 15 years and have never lost anything. Letters/packages addressed to us at the PO Box are delivered to the box while letters/packages addressed to us at our home are delivered to the house.

Re: Gary Jacobi

Mak maybe a good idea to contact SS in the Philippines if you haven't already done so. They may be able to offer some assistance. Worth a try.

"There marriage appears not to have been registered with the Embassy, so her position is somewhat weakened under US law."

The marriage must be registered with the Amphur to make it legal. Village marriages are not considered to be legal here in Thailand or the US.

Re: Salt Water Pool

Yes you will lose some salt during the rainy season but not very much. I believe all good chlorinators have a salt detection system built into them to tell you when the salt is low. The electricity issue is a bit tricky as some chlorinators are more prone to electrical instability than others. We ha...

Brney the algae problem may be due to incorrect ph of the water. I have no algae problems at all but constantly keep a check on the ph.

Re: Salt Water Pool

We've had a salt water in ground pool here at our house for close to 15 years now. Maintenance is really quite simple. Once you have the correct salt level established you don't need to add more salt as it will not evaporate. PH needs to be controlled by adding liquid acid to the water as it normall...

Re: America coming apart at the seams?

I applaud Retired Gen Mathis, former JCS Chairman Admiral Mike Mullen, former Pres Obama, Bush, Clinton & Carter among others who have come forward to criticize the current US President. I don't believe it's my social responsibility to remain silent either. Trump has led the US down a path of destru...

Re: CDC just came out with a New Report

RL I would suggest you not wear a mask in public, get as close to as many people in a large crowd as possible especially bars, nightclubs massage parlors etc, don't wash your hands often and please make sure to rub your eyes and face often while out and about. For me I'll do just the opposite. The C...

Re: Sendiing Mail

As far as I know the only way to get anything back to the states via air is to use UPS (office in Nong Samrong) or the Thai P.O. which will connect with DHL or you can visit one of the 3 DHL offices here in town. I don't believe FEDEX serves this area.
