Re: D-Day Anniversary

Ha ha, not only did we provide well beyond replacement equipment to every country in Europe, Russia and Asia. The Germans could have reequipped after Dunkirk, Singapore and a few other places. Yes, we had our own in the PI. Not only did we provide sufficient man power to fight on several fronts, yea...

Re: D-Day Anniversary

Interesting comment Khun Paul. I wonder where we would be if America had just stayed home. After having to intervene in 2 WWs it was more efficient to just keep a quarter million troops in Europe so we wouldn't have to go back a third time.

Re: Americans plead for vaccines as top US ....

I had this conversation outside the forum with another. I really do not expect the Embassy to send Dr's to every province to inoculate Americans or require Americans to show up at BKK or Chiang Mai for shots.. I contended that there could be a system where the Embassy could support a program and tha...

Re: Americans plead for vaccines as top US ....

I have long since ceased to be amazed at the unfriendly comments directed at Americans and the American Gov't where no one has done more for so many. Americans, apparently unlike some you, do not expect to be abandoned just because we live in another country and neither should any citizen of another...

Re: Soi dog , puppy's

There is a veterinary school there. Go in the main gate and take the first right, then the next right and pay attention you will see a building marked Animal Hospital on the right as you follow the road around. The teacher/veterinarian sees "patients" and often has a student assisting for the experi...

Re: Soi dog , puppy's

A couple years ago there was a female that came to our street. We were friendly with her and several gave her foo from time to time including us. Long story short she eventually brought us 3 puppies, then it was five and finally 9. Wow, didn't expect that. We found them homes and decided the mom cou...

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.

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.

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...
