Re: A 'First' at Tesco

You should have offered the cashier 1000.25, but this off course would have involved 2 more cashiers and the store manager trying to calculate the amount of change to give to you.

Re: the nagas are a fraud

It is a money spinning venture, much like Nessie, the locals need something to fixate on. They will be seeing fireballs emerge from the waters next.

Re: Big C....

I have always felt uneasy about taking in my own "Bag for Life", I remember it being the norm in the 60s' when my Mum went shopping, you had to leave your bag behind the counter at some shops, presumably to avoid shoplifting. To this day I dislike carrying my own bag in to a shop.

Re: No butter in Lotus UD town

Twice I have been into Tesco Lotus and noticed the only butter the have in the refrigerators is the very small packs of 10g (x8 packets). This time I asked where the 227g and 454g pack were, Staff said they don't sell it. Can anyone confirm you cannot buy butter in there? I phoned customer service,...

Re: Coffee and Health

Usually 100% content indicates a quality product, but in the case of coffee I find that a ratio of 70/30 arabica/robusta gives a better cup of coffee. You need to play with the ratio when using different brands of beans. I have found only one shop in Udon which will ask me what ratio I require.

Re: The unknown warrior

A timely and well written post reminding everyone of previous sacrifices. As a former RBL (S) Wreath Bearer for 10 years, I look back with considerable pride at Remembrance Day events at Fort William in the morning, and at Spean Bridge, with the Royal Marines in the afternoon.

Re: Income Letter

As the British Embassy (BE) has over the years made huge amounts of money from providing these letters,I am hopeful,that they will find a way to appease the Thai authorities and still produce these letters. The loss of this income will hurt the BE. Luckily enough my UK state pension just kicked in t...

Re: Coffee and Health

Anyone tried the 'Gabriel Blend's of coffee from Dose? Really nice, slightly fruity taste. The 'House Blend' is way too bitter though. Which coffee is your favourite? Personally I prefer the house blend at Dose, to the Gabriel blend. Have you tried the 3 types of beans available at Mavin Coffee Roa...
