Re: Chris' Place British Pub Restaurant (Sponsor)

From the BBC web site today: autos/story/20160913-the-secrets-to-driving-in-a-storm I quote: "Back off.

Re: Red license plates on cars - how long?

As you know, on a dry day with a decent road surface, cared for breaks and tyres (lol TIT) a car driver should leave a 2 second gap between his vehicle and the vehicle in front (only a fool breaks the two second rule). When you have someone tailgating you, lift your foot off the accelerator and doub...

Re: Udon Immigration

What a load of fuss about nothing. Some of you are getting to be real m.o.g.s.. 2 smiling polite helpful chaps on the 90 day desk. All they want is next of kin details which, to me, is both sensible and reasonable. Wonderful service received yet again from this immigration office. Took 2 minutes thi...

British Beer on Draft

Thanks for the update chaps. I'm sure you will post when you have the draught available again. Chris, I like your bar but it's the wrong side of the city for me so I will never be a regular unless I move. Nobody could confirm to me that you were still selling the beer - most said they didn't know, t...

British Beer on Draft

Thanks DM, update much appreciated.

I'm guessing that there is none in Udon at the moment if you don't have it!

Unless anyone knows better?

British Beer on Draft

With all the recent BS on certain sponsors threads alongside the misleading and/or out of date advertising of many udonmap sponsers, can anyone clarify the places where British Beer on Draught is available? Not "will be", not "having it installed" but actually On Sale. I don't get to Udon often but ...

There's a decent looking western style home stay at the small wine makers place in Ban Chiang. I'll try to get the number later today.

Enforcing Traffic Laws - Really?

About 10 years ago, the overall cost to the UK economy of each road fatality was estimated at GBP 1 million. No idea what it is now. This cost includes emergency services, investigation, coronor, loss of investment (education, health), loss of income (no more tax, no productivity) et al. Anyone got ...

Pricing in Adverts

Incorrect, out of date adverts also totally devalue the business. If a business owner can't be bothered to keep advertising information up to date, then I can't be bothered to go there.

Windows 10 Download Reservation started today

I finally bit the bullet and upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10 a month ago. At present I am very pleased with the result. The upgrade has solved a few issues that I had with Windows 7, with a couple of new problems being encountered now. Start up and shut down are significantly faster. Movies of...

Best Thai School for P5 Student

Don Bosco isn't for every boy. Some do extremely well, others might as well stay at home. Choice is fairly limited unless you are considering government schools as well. What is your grandson interested in ? What subjects does he enjoy? Which subjects do not interest him? Is he/are you comfortable w...

Have a car, have an apartment...but what's my best bet.

I would add On line work to Paul's suggestions.

No income? Soon there will be no money and very quickly after that, no wife and no honey! Be very careful.

scorpions and snakes and centipedes

The giant black centipede and the much smaller bright orange centipede have extremely painful bites that are likely to put you in bed for 2 or 3 days. According to the internet there is no effective painkiller available for those two. Get your better half to show you the plants that work well for ot...

Moore violence by Thais vs Tourist..

For me, Thailand lags behind the UK by about 60 years giving a decade or so either side. For example, in the late 60's and early 70's, skinhead gangs turned Paki Bashing (Pakistani) into a cult activity unti the next football match. The UK police gave it the same low level of prioity as the Thais ap...

Another problem easy to solve Thai style.

Just invite the local kids round - their wee-wee will soon have it overflowing again.
