17°C 'feels like 16°C' here in snowy Udon.

 

Lots of wind last night, thought we were gonna get a storm, but sadly, nope.

 

Just spilt a full cup of coffee on the sofa. Smashing!

Until Owl gets his PC sorted out, can you share some about your bike riding? Are you using a bicycle or motorbike? If its a bicycle, did you buy it there in Thailand or bring it in from your home country? Thanks

Hi Sterling ,

 

Nearly all my "bike" riding are made on a Wheeler MTBike ( a bicycle ) ;

I bought it in Pattaya in 2010 or 2011;

before that date it was also on a bicycle but it was a road bike made in France by mister Daniel Salmon

Road bike with which I did some nices cycling touring event such as la " Francilienne ",  la" Louison Bobet " , la " Bernard Hinault " and " Bordeaux- Paris ";

Bordeaux Paris ; the finish isn't in Paris but in Fontenay sous Bois near Paris ; 628 km in 26 h and 3 minutes 

 

my late Salmon road bike; shot not far from Nan ; I was coming back from Bo Kluea ( the village of salt )

We should ask the Thai people who are registered on this forum what are the reasons which push the Thai people to abandon sometimes expensive houses and vehicles without going back.

Ghosts!Thais don't like second hand buildings because of ghosts I came across this looking at properties and my wife told me ghosts!We may laugh but there you go,that and as you said they often ask ridiculous prices.

So you are not living far from my village ;

I went many times to Wat Kham Chanod ...

 

The first time I went there, they were building the long snake and the big Bouddha ( april 2006 )

That's the first time I have seen any pics of the older kham Chanod. Thanks for that.

 

There have been a couple of films about the place. It seems that it has a very dark side; 300, mostly women and children, slaughtered a while back. Ghosts of Kham Chanod.

 

The pritiest girl I've ever seen in Thailand was in Sawang Dan Ding. She came over to me and whispered in my ear; we have a fresh dog delivery. Would you like a stew take-a-way?

 

Another thing springs to mind; the Tesco on the main drag had a small restaurant. At each table there were nibbles. A little dish of spring onions and another of garlic. Just can't get enough of those before a hot bowl of dog soup.

 

Been a bit under the weather recently. Kept getting heartburn after any food. I upped my intake of reishi wine considerably and I'm pleased to reports I'm well on the mend.

 

Off to farm soon. We bought some big concrete rings yesterday for Mrs Owl's lime trees. I can feel a retun of the heartburn.

 

Bye y'all.

Sorry about the heartburn but what it the function of the concrete rings?We had them in our lemon orchard before all the trees died.Not sure why they died but it might have been old age as they were petty long in the tooth but I found the rings to be a bit of a nuisance.
