On a sunny day when the shadows are lengthening ...

Measure the length of your shadow (a)

Measure your own height (b)

Measure the length of the shadow of the tree (c)

(b) multiplied by (c) then divide by (a) equals the height of the tree.

 

(hope I got this right or I'll look foolish)

Or just download an app to your phone and let that do the Pythagoras thing for you.

Mr Owl, this is all great reading, but I am a little confused. You mention all the farms etc but also seem to be short of cash to buy anything. What's going on there? Farms not making money? Genuine question, not being a smartarse.

Don't get me wrong it sounds like a great lifestyle.

I tried a similar shot once...yours is much better. On the banks of the Mun river.

 

 

Absolutely beautiful. The sun looks OK too. And the river. And the sky.

Great read Owl, glad to see you are back on track with the new laptop, also glad to see you have abandoned your experimentation with the new font !!, while obviously a pleasant change from the common font used daily I found it very difficult to read on my phone ( even with my 69 baht readers 🤓).

 

Always a pleasant change to read a daily log of a down to earth lifestyle, including the trials and tribulations , of someone who comes across as a “ nice fella “ getting by in Isaan.

 

I wish you well and hope your farming ventures take a turn for the better.

Thanks Andy.

 

Yes the font. Comic Sans; my favourite font. But, at 11 (my favourite number) pixels it was too small; 12 would have been OK. Sorry about that.

 

Talking of numbers; strange how 69 keeps cropping up. I like 69 for a couple of reasons. Firstly, it can be turned through 180 degrees horizontally and still read the same. Also it can be divided exactly by 23. And, perhaps most importantly, it's easy to enter, without looking, at an ATM machine.

The farm may not be worth much, but it gives you the inspiration to tell about a healthy and simple pastoral life.


Thank you for these sheets, Owl, a real pleasure to read.

Three meals and an ice coke for Milly; 148 baht. It's not as cheap as on the street but it's OK every now and again, as a special treat.

 

What is so special (special treat) about a 148 baht meal for three people?

@owl sees all Is this the topic you were referring to:

 

Yes Sterling; that's it.

 

Enough in that thread for a good book about Thailand.
