Re: US Passport Renewal

I had to renew mine during the virus problem. I was told by the Embassy they were not issuing new passports but I could request an emergency PP for 1 year. I dd and received it in good time as my old one was about to expire. Contact ACS at the embassy for the latest correct info.

Re: Little Italian Restaurant (Sponsor)

My wife and I stopped in yesterday for lunch, inside, sitting at the same table. We were happy to see our favorite waitress back and enjoyed our entrees plus an espresso on the house.

Re: Gloom and doom or sum num na

My original post, as typical, brought all the negative, expert responses expected so again I will mention what I was trying to say before. We foreigners are mostly still here with our measly incomes buying groceries, paying utilities, buying gas, cars, m/c and everything needed to support a family o...

Re: BANGKOK BANK

Whistler, you forget where you are. What you are about to do might give you some satisfaction but be sure no one at the bank really cares what you do unless it involves millions of TB. It won't even be noticed.

Just asking

if any of the foreigners embassys have protested the continuing insults to us by Cabinet Ministers? It would be nice if they did but of course we know it isn't going to happen. I suspect if our gov't reps did this to the Thais in another country the outcry would be a lot louder from the Thais than w...

Gloom and doom or sum num na

Excuse the poor spelling translation. Is there such a thing as karma? I don't know but for those who believe I wonder how this stacks up. We foreigners, I hate that word farang, who reside here and often feel unloved and unwanted by the Thai gov't and Immigration should be considering these facts. W...

Re: Villa market

My wife and I were in there 2 days ago and talked to the Opns Mngr who we know from the Landmark days and the Deli woman. Both say the sales are slow in some areas and high enough in others that the store is not having a problem or cause to consider closing. Take it for what it is worth.

Re: Knee Pain

I had a lot of knee pain at times, a pharmacist here sold me a tube of piroxicam which is the ingredient sold under different names. It solved the pain problem allowing me to walk and ride my bike again without pain and discomfort.

Re: converting slides to photos

Old grumpy got it right. I upgraded to a Canon 9000F Mk II scanner which was much faster. I brought back nearly 4,000 slides and scanned them to the computer then an external hard drive to store. You can print off your computer, assuming you have a printer. Call if you have any questions. I had my p...

Re: Bank Account for Retirement

In the 16 years I have been here it has often been interesting at the efforts to avoid or satisfy Immigration. In general, what is expected is usually pretty clear but the efforts run from amusing to downright stupid. Just do what is required and get over it, your life will be more stress free.
