  1. Been walking this path since 1973. It works if you are smart enough to work it.
  2. Joe, what happened to the statement from immigration that they would cut us a little slack on this first year if our deposits were not all above 65,000 baht.....mine have been fluctuating above and below all year. Has anybody actually invoked this with immigration?
  3. I had a bus driver on his tablet on his steering wheel. I took video of him, and told my wife he was dangerous. She told the steward lady the farang is not happy, and she told him.....he stopped immediately. Nobody lost face....end of story. Thais will not speak up in most situations. Our son was in hospital for days with the flu. On the second day a doctor came to see him, and another didn't come for 28 hours. I lodged a written complaint with the hospital.....my lady wouldn't say much of anything. They think doctors are gods. I always check the medicines they prescribe. One recently was banned in Europe and the USA....it went in the trash. Another was for mental illness for my lady's period issues.....in the trash. Crazy stuff.

  5. He didn't concede a goal till the semi-final in the 1966 WC, and they played some tough teams like Portugal with Eusabio, and Argentina. Pathetic he wasn't knighted, but then again it's who you know. I worked at Alfred Herbert's in Coventry and the chairman got knighted for creating another company, but then it went under. Did he give the knighthood back.....of course not.
  6. You are wrong....I was on the island for specific medical treatment at a specific hospital. And the Songthaews hold you to ransom. I was riding in one and there were six Germans walking. The driver stopped and said 100 baht each, they refused and started walking, he then said 80 baht, they refused and started walking again, he then said 50 baht, so they got in. The place is a nightmare, the traffic is horrible, worse than Phuket. Supposedly a 45 kph speed limit, but crazy kids screaming around the island on their scooters. I was hit by one doing over a 100 kph, his footrest punched a hole through my door and severely damaged four different structural braces on the right suspension. They wanted the car for a month to fix it.....ridiculous. I paid for the main piece myself and drove back to Korat, fixed in a week. As I said before.....a dump.
  7. There were two letters addressing the new rules and the money in the bank issue in the English version of the Bangkok Post today. Maybe we should all be writing letters as they are probably also in the Thai version.
