Netflix

Narcos would probably qualify for 'mature' ratings....certainly more than you'll ever see on True/UBC. But it's available here on Netflix....uncensored. About half-way through season 1 now. Riveting entertainment, especially since it's at least based on a true story. Totally forgot about the Avianc...

RIP Glenn Frey

You really realize you're getting older when so many of your friends and favorite performers are dropping left and right. Another rock and roll legend bites the dust. I vividly remember walking into a stereo equipment retail store in the early 70's. I was in the market for a whole new high end syste...

David Bowie. RIP

Saw him in a small pub in Memphis when his career was just beginning those many years ago. Made headlines when he sold all the rights to his music for $50 million a number of years ago. A true rock n roll legend. R.I.P. Heaven's house band just got a little cooler.

Netflix

Well, as it turns out, this is not 100% of Netflix's total programming that's available in the states. One series that I just started watching, House of Cards, is not available on the "filtered" link available here in Thailand. I still have to use a VPN to watch. Great series about the seedy undersi...

English a problem for Thai's in Asean

Two personal examples on this subject: During Songkran one year a nice young lady from the village came over to practice her English. She was working on an advanced degree in a Bangkok college. After several minutes of acceptable, if not perfect English, she asked if she could ask me a question. I s...

I'm very sad to report the death of Jim Fisher, formerly from Chicago. He met his Thai wife in Chicago where she worked in a Thai restaurant many years ago. He had been retired and living in Thailand a number of years when he started frequenting our restaurant and we became friends. Jim had battled ...

Added bonus.....all the items are maintained in air conditioned surroundings. And this has been one of my concerns in the past. It is more important for certain drugs than others.
