My Shopping Day in 8330 Steps

Billionaire politician: Summer of Trump

I see Drumpf is polling very well. He actually leads Crooked Hillary in some polls. :shock: ... ...He might, however, make it more difficult to take a Thai teeruk back to the US. Just speculating. It's well and truly speculation season given the polls say Drumpf has a significant chance of becoming...

What Couriers Insure Packages to US

Call Gae at the UPS office in Nongsamrong. Her English is good and you can get insurance. 089 849 9065. Tell her Ed sent you. Went by to talk with Gae today. She was great, but after calling Bangkok we discovered that they will only insure contents of a package up to $2500. Wow, my question is...."...

Billionaire politician: Summer of Trump

I find it interesting that people who are the most concerned about the debt (something that doesn't seem to have an impact on our day to day affairs) are least concerned about climate change or gun control (something that seems to affect our everyday affairs). It will certainly impact our day to da...

Rito Navarro (Papaguido) passed away!

Papaguido was always the driving force behind the Marine Corps birthday parties every Nov 10, which we had the pleasure of hosting twice while we had our restaurant. Just a genuinely nice guy and always fun to be around. RIP Rito and condolences to the family.

Maybe Condoleeza Rice?? That would tick a lot of boxes... ...or Colin Powell... but both have emphatically said they are done with politics, especially Powell who feels Bush more or less betrayed him.

Scottish tourist killed by elephant on Koh Samui

Being reported on TV Channel News Asia now. His 13 year old step daughter and the elephant's handler were injured as well. The TV commentator said incidents like this are more common than reported. Surprise surprise. I had to do a search to find it in the Post: http://www.bangkokpost.com/news/genera...
