Re: Scot scran

Re: Scot scran

That would be "Onion" in Jokenese .. and claiming that highland scotch pies are the same as Lowland .. which we now know is folly .. it appears from my investigations each tartan clan has their own recipe for Scotch pies .. with the strangest being in Abroath (where ever that is) .. where they actu...

What is a "letter of support" from the UK Embassy? I was under the impression that the UK Embassy no longer issued anything to do with visa or extension of stay applications. First time ever seen this requirement.

Re: BITCOIN

Just watch this, 'https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bBC-nXj3Ng4' and then make up your mind about Bit Coin and all the other cryptocurrencies in existence. Basically confirming that the people with a really big computer could bring the whole thing down (while making a shed full of money).

Re: BITCOIN

I own 0.17849822 bitcoin. Not a big believer, but figured what the heck. Some say it will go to 1 million per "coin" due to eroding trust in central banks as well as unsustainable government finances and the resulting dilution of fiat money. If companies start moving into Bitcoin en masse then perh...

Re: Any E-waste shops or drop off points in Udon Thani?

Totally agree. Have a few dead phones lying about and the non rechargeable batteries that we should dispose of responsibly have nowhere to go. Some of the bigger stores (Big C, Tops) could have a bin that people could chuck the waste into. Someone must have a recycle plant somewhere. More toxic than...

^ You're beginning to sound like my Auntie Doris who, on her annual pilgrimage to the clan cave, always insisted that she came from Corstorphine and not Edinburgh.
Would that be the lady who always wore a fur coat but sans scanties at the ironing table. Wondered where your fixation came from.
