Re: Mosquito fogging

We get fogged twice a year, TW supervises the activity as a part of her roll as the Tambon Health Inspector. Oh when I say "we" I don't mean our property, it's out of bounds - just the over spray sends my hay fever out of control.

They said that sources at the public prosecutors' office indicated that these were an air force man with the rank of "air marshall" and a man...

Re: power bill reductions (covid-19)

If you're down to 127 volts the major concern is appliances, eg. Refrigerator compressors, if they stall then it's a horrible smell followed by "poof"! I have an undervoltage relay installed that trips at about 185 volts just for this type of situation. Edit: BTW, Ohms Law --- P = IE If the voltage ...

Soldering Flux, in several forms usually a translucent paste. If the wire and connection is perfectly clean you can use "Resin Core Solder", has the flux impeded in it.

Re: Visa Extension

Ms Dodgy Visa, Udon uses Chonburi about 17,000 Baht 2,000 of which is to do the 90 Day reports for the customer. If one wants an Udon stamp in their PP it's about 20,000 Baht. From a friend who has been using her for some 8 years.

Not Udon related but:- Yep, same situation as @mick. Had ours here in Ban Dung for some 18 years, only gone up 50 Baht in that time to 250. A total waste of money as the post office ignores it (as addressed) and sends out our mail, including EMS, via the post man anyway. We are about 17km out of tow...

Re: Monthly Food and Household Items Budget

5K???? That wouldn't keep Mrs Dero in "sticky rice" for a month let alone feed me and step daughter, etc. Sure that is not a misprint Tam? I'm thinking 20K with 8K of that going into Makro and other various retailers in Udon each month.
