  1. You're right Chivas - I'm in a similar position...the problem with THAT idea is that if the UK government still advises against foreign travel, we wouldn't get travel insurance to go anywhere! I'm still waiting for my claim for my last return from Thailand to be paid (had to buy a flight after Emirates / UAE closed) - assuming that goes through, I might even cancel my annual travel insurance and reinstate it at a later date. Ho hum.....
  2. https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control When you arrive in the UK, go straight to the place where you will self-isolate. Your friends or family can collect you from the airport, port or station. Only use public transport if you have no other option. If you do use public transport, wear something that covers your nose and mouth and stay 2 metres apart from other people.
  3. I thought Thai Police had guns? Bikes have tyres........see where I'm going with this?
  4. Concur!! I urge caution on ANY update especially on a "production" or sole machine. I have Win 10 Pro Feature updates deferred for 365 days (2004 is one of these) Quality updates deferred for 30 days On my Win 10 Home rigs, I've deferred updates for as long as possible and set WiFi "metered" As I no longer get paid to find bugs, I shall wait until at least 3 months after it's generally released to installed it on my "lean, mean computing machine"
  5. That's no way to talk about the ladyboys
  6. Which, sadly, you just don't know! That's the whole dilemma with Covid - anyone MIGHT be carrying and spreading it without showing any symptoms - that includes you and me!
  7. Sadly though, their last master plan was to allow the Chinese to virtually take over, build loads of casinos and ruin the place. What could possibly go wrong?
  8. Saw this today https://www.ttrweekly.com/site/2020/05/emirates-flies-with-new-safety-standards/ It is NOT as yet reflected on the Emirates official site but if it's accurate shows what a GOOD airline / airport can achieve.
  9. Funny you should say that. In the 35 or so years I (a Brit) have been visiting Thailand, apart from the occasional buffalo welfare scheme to which I've contributed (yes I KNOW!) the only serious scammers I've met are: A Brit who wanted me to "manage his boutique" - he ended up in the "Bangkok Hilton" on drug crimes A Brit who wanted me to invest in his hotel but when I asked to see the past few years' accounts, said words to the effect of "You'll never do business in Thailand if you want details like that" An Australian "Estate Agent" whose commision would have worked out at 60% plus my ownership of the property may well have been illegal So who exactly are the crooks? Needless to say I invited each of them to go forth and multiply!
  10. Plus, it is subject to review after 3 weeks so whatever the rules are now it is worth keeping an eye on.
  11. I loved The Sex Pistols but couldn't resist posting this... Johnny Rotten a few years after the Pistols......
  12. Just as well - we're all a bunch of flippin' kids! I tried growing up once......worst 10 minutes of my life
