Yes I'm afraid so , at my age after so many years of worrying about all and sundry I have realised no one is going to worry about me except myself and experience has taught me its no good worrying about what you can not change, especially when it doesn't effect you. It's a fruitless exercise, bette...

Pound looking good.

The doors are open , let voting commence. The money markets are quietly confident of the result, hence the pound back to 40 again, its looking promising, but will get better if Bojo wins, the bigger the margin the better the pound. By breakfast time tomorrow we will have a good idea, hopefully Bojo ...

Re: Meats & More (Sponsor)

price and weight please ... . M&M is the best Farang food outlet I have seen in Udon Thani. Anyone who shopped at Chern Chim would attest to that, nothing in the shop was priced, and the poor shop assistant had to telephone the Boss , in front of me, for the price of a tin of soup.

Young people also have moral significance and their interests should be considered.
To me life is but a relay race, we have done our leg and now passed the baton on to the next generation, how fast they go is up to them, time for us to sit back and watch them .

Well I'm in a quandary, should I transfer some cash now and enjoy it's current level based on predictions of a strong conservative win, around the 40bht mark or should I wait a couple more days and enjoy a little bit more if they do, but knowing it will plunge dramatically if its a hung parliament a...

Re: Jeffrey Epstein and Prince Andrew

I think that the tapes and files that Epstein kept (a copy of which are currently in Russia) could tend to prove his guilt/innocence once and for all. Unfortunately for the general public and fortunate for Andy & Ghislaine they also contain incriminating evidence about dozens/hundreds of others who...
