The deltic "Alycidon" came through 10 minutes late and exhaust putting a steam engine to shame, I hope it gets to Edinburgh! A fine site none the less and many others out to see it as well. The A1pacific "Tornado" leaves Edinburgh for the return leg.

32C today but sun has gone so very humid.

The new beer offer up at Waitrose is 8 cans of Marstons pedigree for £8, which is where I came in, Pedigree was on offer when I arrived and the offer finishes on the day I fly out. NIce finish.

This friday on the Euromillions lottery 100 millionaires will be created as well as £105m jackpot, thought I might have a dabble, beats the thai effort!

Toodle Pip!

Ten Min: late dash poor show. I bet with all the Diesel fume's it was belching out it must have seemed like you were home again in N/Smog.

Hope you have a good result on the lottery, just think if it's a large amount you could up stick's and move to somewhere decent. One can alway's dream what.

There is no spare land around here so Naff Orf as Princess Anne was wont to say.

I didn't say move here what you have to think about is anywhere would be better than N/S, anyway what make's you think the Dave would reach for the top somewhere in the middle would be ok, don't panic Bill first he has to win at least something.

The games are underway, crowd management is the rage but transport so far is working very well, just have to walk further to get to the trains!

Spent the weekend near Portobello Road, met Maureen Lipman in Kensingtin Gardens walking the dog and saw Simon Cowell's place with a Lambo in the drive! Was taken to a "great" Thai restaurant which , of course, dint tast like anything I have ever had in Thailand! even though it was staffed by people who looked like they were from Thailand, absoulutely the best THai food is in Nakhon sawan, just have to know where to go, shhhhhhhhhhhh............Sauturday morning went to another Thai restaurant but this time had a full English breakfast and jolly good it was too.

This morning I went down to Greenwich to see HMS OCEAN, a fine site indeed.

Did any of you see the opening ceremony? Right rum do if you ask me especially the music ( pop ) they played to represent GB.... FRankie goe to hollywood, Sex Pistols and the Jam? What the ........... I would have thought Cliff would have been a better choice, not as if I am a great fan but........ well what do I know. Apparently they left out any reference to Trafalgar, Waterloo etc in case we upset someone!

Amazing when you think that Trafalgar turned a European power into the worlds first global super power!

The lottery delivered their usual response, I will not be able to help HMRC!

There you go Bill Dave didn't win the lotto so panic over you can call orrrf the troup's.

M Lipman the ology lady A say no more. Then you went to a Thai restaurant what in hell's name did you go in one of those for ??? last time H/M tried Thai food in Blighty is was the same as it's alway's been crap, not to mention the well over the top price EG rice just under £3 a go more than likely more now. Best place to get Thai food in Thailand is N/Smog going down the petrol pork road again are we. Then you go on to say you went to yet another Thai rest: and had a full English!!! what was that rice with a fried egg on top??? do hope you didn't forget the fish sauce. Talking of fish Makro is now selling Herring's all be it frozen but they are very tasty in a word delish.

Didnt see the opening of the olympics as it went orrrf at 3am, have heard from English friend's and they told me I didn't miss much. Beck's played a part yawn, yawn, then there was a bit from Thomas Hardy's book Far from the Madding Crowd. For peep's that don't know it's about farmer's and sheep, and to round thing's orrrf a sing along with of all peep's Paul Mc sound's like a disaster waiting to happen, but look on the bright side it only cost £42+ Mil:

H/M would like to know why there should be a problem with crowd's getting away from the game's as the one's that I have seen have all been half empty, rum pore show with ticket allocation if you ask me.

You just enjoy your next/last four week's.

Oh H/M see's it's raining yet again and Joy of Joy's the temp's: down to the mid 60f, with no restbite on the horizon. Getting better by the day.

H/M K.P.P.

I was down in N/S on Friday to renew my retirement extension, in and out in 32 minutes including chatting to the lady in charge.

Nice friendly and helpful people and the main lady there speaks good English and has a sense of humour too.

Did my shopping and coming back from Makro I looked at the Ping river BKK side and the water level is still uite low with some sandy beaches in midstream.

The route 1 from Salok Bat to Ban Ben Bo just before the bypass is still abysmal though they are resurfacing on the uplanes around Salok Bat.

The motorcycle lanes are the best surface left but not for long as the trucks and busses are using them too.

Never mind the potholes....a few more weeks and you can row down the motorcycle lane.

Come out of the Bus station turn left over the bridge then take any road that take's you down the side of bridge to the river turn left and it come's up on the left some 3/400 mt. You can get a tuk tuk from the bus station cost I don't know or you could send me a PM and I will give you my phone No: and I'll pick you up drop you off that's if the time is ok with me. N/B long way to come just to see your team loose to the great K.K.Phet.

Had to do the last post in a hurry don't walk over the bridge bit like N/S it could be deadly. Get Tuk Tuk Bt bus. I do believe there are M/C taxi's they would be cheaper, Sorry to be vague on transport but I never use the bus station.

H/M.

Yes, it's quite a pleasure going to NS Immigration, as you say nice and friendly people, a lot different from my many visits to Suan Pluu! thumbsup.gif

Open's every day except Wed from about 4pm onward's yes it is spotless and free. Has a free swim bit with shoot's ect and lane's if you want to practice for the next olympics + there's a bit round the edge that has a water jet to propel you round under bridge's, all in all not a bad set up, and they don't seem to mind if us elderly peep's use it. Next to it just across the road is another park that also has bit's for kid's swing's slide's and the like.

What time is the orrrf for the football as I might come along that's if it's not Peeing down. The offer is still there if you want picking up from the bus station I only live a few Min: from it by car so it's not a problem.

H/M.

I came back from BKK one time on my motorbike and got caught in a storm above the Lat Yao turn and nearly ran into trees a couple of times that were across the bike lanes not to mention that not many people slowed down in the heavy rain. That was a scary ride, flooded m/c lane, potholes and big trucks not slowing down and in the m/c lane.

I won't bother with that again if I can help it.

Hello Kiddies, just 11 days before I return! I was going to go to the Olympic Park in the early morning to see the Royal Marines Band, they have been entertaining the early crowds, only to find out from a "volunteer" that you cannot walk into the park without a ticket, not that I want to go into an arena, the ticket cost is £5, cheeky sods I have been paying out of my council tax for more than 6 years to help put this show on the road!

Organisation is very good and the transport system is working very well indeed. There is a tremendous "feel good" factor around the country, how long will it last when ts all over who knows but it will help me get through the last few days. Tomorrow I will have a home tasting session. Chang, Broadside and Pedigree then I will retire to bed to consider the results!

Keep Calm and Carry on.
