Safety: Us vs. Them

There are times when I'd love to drive a pickup truck, loaded with 10 people in the back, through a small city in the US......or a motorcycle with a 2yr old standing on the front and an older child on the back........or post a sign on my restaurant advising customers that 'sorry, we no longer use ho...

Re: Mixed-use development projects in udon thani

Although I haven't been sub-division scouting for some time, most of the older subdivisions are what I'd consider mixed-use development......they start out as all homes, then many of the homes slowly transform into homes and businesses.......mom and pop stores, coffee stands, hair dressers/barbers, ...

Long Ago Plants

Many Thais who are older long for plants that used to be ubiquitous......found in their yard, rice field, along the road. Many of these plants are now difficult to find due to development. There's a large group of nurseries in the Rangsinee area.......a small road just before the BMW dealer or anoth...

Sai Sin on his wrist?
Apparently he's been wearing one for many years, but this is the first I've noticed. He probably has the inevitable mongolian ink spot as well, but that's between him and his pants.

Re: Masters

Tiger's a luk kreuang.......ลูกครึ่ง.......I don't know his mother's political leanings, but she supposedly tells her son to wear red on Sunday's as it's his power color.
There's another hint of Tiger's upbringing in the photo. Anyone?

It's good to see he's found his death stare again.

Re: insulation???

"The house temperature was around 32 as we had the doors and windows closed, though in the roof area it is 35 which keeps the water tank there at a comfortable temperature for our showers" We lived in two rentals/1 year each downtown before we built. Both had water tanks outdoors....and the water wa...

Re: insulation???

A few decades ago, when we first arrived, we knew a man in Nongwahsaw......he attempted a basement but it filled with water during the rainy season.

ไห is the barrel. My wife threatens to fill up the depression in my collarbone with fermented fish.....although I doubt she'd ever waste it on such a thing.

Re: learning the thai language

For those of you who show bones through your skin, you wife might refer to the depression in your collar bone area as ไหปลาร้า. Sound familiar??

Re: insulation???

The closest thing I've seen to a successful natural heat extraction system was a house 2/3 of the way to Nongkai.....built of interlocking pressed cement......no mortar, no rebar. The living room had a vaulted ceiling with sliding windows at the top of the roof line. I've been there on several occas...
