Is it pronounced Veegan or Vejan?

 

Be careful.  They're the ISIS of Vegetarians.

While strolling down the street near the Wiang Hotel I saw an Italian restaurant. I decided to go inside and look. Wow what a surprise the chef and owner Is Sasa an old wholesale meat customer of mine in Samui. I was really happy to see him. I had my wife and 2 friends with me. He prepared us an outstanding Italian meal which was the best I have had since I left Bangkok. It is so difficult to find quality farangs food in Chiang Rai because there is such a small number of resident farangs. Looking forward to my next meal there. It was after 18:00 so we had no problem parking on the street just before the hotel.

Just chew on a pork chop and drool on their tofu.

My entrepreneurial neighbour, who has always despised the life of a common employee, has slowly built up a children's entertainment business for local parties and other festivities.

His roundabout/hurdy gurdy, call it what you may, has apparently been a success as I noticed a large bundle on his truck today that was apparently a bouncy castle.

The lack of stakes and guy ropes concerns me.

Two good friends had their much loved dogs die recently, something to reflect on when your dog is growing old.

My daughters (our) two year old male chihuahua got out onto the road and was killed just over a year ago. Very sad. Two mornings later Lucy announced quite truthfully that "Dug Dig" had come to see her in the night, and told her not to worry, he was quite happy and had lots of new friends to play with. She was being quite honest.

 

Strange world sometimes...

One of the good things about religion and beliefs.. it can comfort people, she probably had a dream and luckily a good one that comforted her. My dog is also getting old, not sure how long he will live. Its always sad and the older we grow the more we have to think about losing those we love. I worry for my parents, recently my SIL lost her father. I dread the day. 

 

Good that your daughter got over it in a positive way.

She got over it very positively! We now have two adolescent dogs, "Snowball", a white chihuahua bitch I bought her a month or so after "Dug Dig" died (cost me an arm and a leg) and "Cookie" a small brown mongrel bitch we were given at Christmas. With them, a daughter and my wife I am the only male in the household. When they all gang up I have to retreat to the porch for a quiet beer to meditate! Maybe that is why I am sometimes so cantankerous  on here....

 

You,re right enough about religion and beliefs. I am a Catholic ( practising if not very good at it) and my faith has brought me comfort and strength at bad times in life. It was certainly a help to Lucy in getting through her first traumatic loss at 10 years old. She was comforted by the belief that "Dug Dig" was living with"Prah Jesu", who knows, if I ever make it to those gates I may find him frisking around Saint Michaels feet!

As an atheist not much religion for me. Its hard for me to believe things that are unproven. I am a science / facts guy. Was just saying that that is one of the positive aspects. One I will never have as I am just too skeptical to believe. 

 

I will miss my dog when its his time.. just like i missed his mother. I am more worried about my parents though. That would be tough. Best not dwell on that one.

I lost both of my parents within ten months of each other.  Two years later and I am still dealing with it.:sad:

Bought a new torch in Big C, small and light and throws a fantastic beam.

Looks a bit like a black .... err... adult relaxation toy.

 

Take three AA batteries... yeah, that's right, three... :wacko:
