Sorry to hear this.. and I really understand you.. its my biggest fear.

Losing your parents is one thing -- watching your parents bury one of their children is really tough to go through.

Anyone noticed the lack of "seasonal" muzak in the malls this year?

 

I hate to dwell on a reason and it's probably not allowed but it's an ill wind that blows no good.

I did notice that the Christmas displays are notably more muted than last year. But I usually complain that the whole Christmas thing is over commercialized anyway, so I'm good with it.  :thumbsup:

How do you 'over commercialize' Christmas in a land of mostly buddhists?

 

Speaking of 'over commercialize', how many Christian NGOs are not in it for the money?

The fields have been burned and are now soaking in readiness for the next planting.

Soybeans I would say.

Had a drive up over that mountain on Sunday to Doi Chang where I bought some Peaberry coffee beans.

Later we went down to Doi Luang Coffee shop in Mae Suai and bought another pack, which the girl assured me were... same beans, same field... for about half the price. 

 

Will conduct a tasting...

The small amount of burning that has taken place is insignificant. You have to wait until March when we are chocking to death. I wonder why the government wont invoke article S44 and deputize the public to arrest these found burning. Next year will be like all the previous years where they turn their backs to burning and send many people to the hospital. Not only the smoke we had 45 days of 40C or over with 4 days at 43C. This year I plan to go to a place where there is no smoke or death defying heat for 30 days. I don't enjoy being locked in an air conditioned because the government refuses to enforce the existing law.

Every evening the smell of smoke is strong in our area.  Fortunately it doesn't linger too long but locally it can be like sitting on the wrong side of a campfire when the wind shifts.  Since everyone burns, you would have to lockup the entire village, except me of course.:wink:

One of our coffee shop regulars came off his motorbike yesterday, suffering facial lacerations and a minor foot fracture.

The hospital advised him that more (expensive) surgery may be necessary.

 

You older guys really need to be careful out there.
