In Udon, I'd go to the back of Global House and browse. It's possible.

Re: Are we into a Recession already here in Udon?

You'd be mad if living in farangland to be eating Kellogs cornflakes. I suppose if you're sick of rice in Thailand it's an option you might occasionally consider. Contrary to some widely held beliefs, the cereal has no I'll effects http://www.faceofmalawi.com/2015/08/what-do-corn-flakes-and-masturb...

Re: learning the thai language

My wife is a fan of mix-it-yourself dish soap that's been popular in OTOP circles for a number of years. A few years ago we had a dog that had a musty smell to its fur, leash, collar......wash in all sorts of dog shampoos/laundry detergents didn't seem to help much. A friend recommended the otop soa...

Re: Currency Crisis Happening Now

I don't know if Mark Farber is still actively predicting economic recessions......but if you stick to your prediction guns, eventually you will be right...although I thing Mark is wrong most all the time.

Re: Road Deaths as compared to Actual Deaths

Dont know about now , but i traveled a lot by road years ago , and up country on the mountain roads you would often see a wreck of a pick up on a pedestal to warn you of a dangerous road . It worked for me , slowed me down . Yes, there seemed to be a national campaign......displaying the worst wrec...

I suspect that if a govt is paying B100,000 towards the cost of a new car at certain times and not others, the year on year comparisons being used for your argument my be somewhat skewed for the next decade or so :-k

Re: Extension Cords Hard to Find Now

Back when Cellini was being built, a bike-riding friend and I stopped by the show room and asked to see some of the models under construction. They were the premier homes of Udon at the time (probably still are). In the home we visited, still under construction, I noticed the wall outlets (not yet i...

Boonthavorn

I've been in Boonthavorn a few times, but never really explored it....until today. I needed a few small things and, while there, decided I may as well take the opportunity to put in a few thousand of my 10,000 step goal. The place is beyond huge. And then there's the second floor! The selection is i...
