  1. Where to sell 1 tonn of tamarin?

    A morning market, night market same thing, may be more people at night markets, buying they evening meal, best markets are the weekly ones Dalhart -Nut in Thai ,one near us on a Sunday evening always lots of people they , from about 4 pm -8pm . Sweet tamarin will keep for about 1 month ,then the insects will attack them ,how long to sell a ton of tamarin ,how long is a piece of string. For peace of mind load them on to a pick-up , take them down to Rangsit . cincytwboy .A factory might buy them ,but it finding one ,the op will have to spend a lot time trawling the internet and asking around ,and a factory will probably be very fussy about quality and will probably want them without the shell, and stones ,to remove them is is a very time consuming and labour intensive ,wife and family are doing that now with sour tamarin, 1 ton would take days and days ,but they are then selling them for 150 baht /kg, Maybe someone connected to OTOP could help , again a problem of finding someone. About the only middleman for tamarin is the wholesale market.
  2. Worst Joke Ever

    When I was at primary school, the joke was,kid a would come to you and say , "what is the capital of Thailand,(pause) Bangkok" ,and then they would thump you in the nuts .
  3. Where to sell 1 tonn of tamarin?

    Tamarin from Phetchabun ,are known almost though out Thailand as being sweet ,not like the ones from the tree at the , end of our soi that are sour as they come ,we buy them around here (Lopburi), depends on size and quality , the last I bought ,the seller had 3 prices ,I think I paid 70 baht /kg, last year ,not seen any of this year's crop for sale yet . So you could take them down to the Darlart-Thai ,at Rangsit sell them in one go ,but you will probably not be on your own and the price will not be good ,if you could find out a price beforehand would help ,this being Thailand, have a look at Thai facebook ,might fine current price there . But, the verity Sie-Tong ,according to my misses is about the best sweet Tamarin verity, supposed to be the sweetest ,so you might get a good price at Rangsit. You could do it the Thai way ,set a stall beside a main road ,but 1 ton is a lot to sell this way ,but being a good verity ,could do ok. Middle of this month near here is a big festival at a large temple ,one that has royal patronage, lasts 4 days , there are always pickups from Phetchabun selling Temarin , do ok to ,have you got any thing like this near you soon. Any night /weekend markets near you ,but being local every man and his dog could /will be selling tamarin ,supply and demard could cut in . Good Luck .

    Grass strimmer blades might do the job they would be a bit shorter than the genuine ones, and the mounting holes, could be smaller in the strimmer blades, but they could be drilled out. Honda blades may be a better bet . It might mean a bit of work ,but as the op said pity to scrap a good mower because of no available blades.

  6. Worst Joke Ever

    A Policeman was drilling 3 blondes, who were training to become detectives. To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the 1st blonde a picture for 5 seconds and then hides it. “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” The first blonde answers “That’s easy, we’ll catch him fast because he only has one eye” The policeman says “Well…Uh.. that’s because the picture shows his profile” Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashes the picture for 5 seconds at the second blonde and asked her “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” The second blonde giggles, flips her hair and says “Ha! He’d be easy to catch because he only has one ear!” The policeman angrily responds, “What’s the matter with you two? Of course only one eye and ear are showing because it’s a picture of his profile! Is that the best answer you can come up with?” Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the third blonde and in a very testy voice asks “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” He adds quickly “….think hard before giving a stupid answer” The Blonde looks at the picture intently for a moment and says “HMMMM… the suspect is wearing contact lenses.” The policeman is surprised and speechless, because he really doesn’t know himself if the suspect wears contacts or not. “Well, that is a good answer.. wait here for a few minutes while I check his file, and I’ll get back to you on that” He leaves the room and goes to his office, checks the suspect’s file in his computer and comes back with a beaming smile on his face. “WoW! I can’t believe it…it’s TRUE! The suspect does in fact wear contacts lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?” “That’s easy” the blonde replied. “He can’t wear glasses because he only has one eye and one ear!”

    On a plane bound for New York the flight attendant approached a blonde sitting in the first class section and requested that she move to coach since she did not have a first class ticket. The blonde replied, “I’m blonde, I’m beautiful, I’m going to New York, and I’m not moving.” Not wanting to argue with a customer the flight attendant asked the co-pilot to speak with her. He went to talk with the woman asking her to please move out of the first class section. Again, the blonde replied, “I’m blonde, I’m beautiful, I’m going to New York, and I’m not moving.” The co-pilot returned to the cockpit and asked the captain what he should do. The captain said, “I’m married to a blonde, and I know how to handle this.” He went to the first class section and whispered in the blonde’s ear. She immediately jumped up and ran to the coach section mumbling to herself, “Why didn’t anyone just say so.” Surprised, the flight attendant and the co-pilot asked what he said to her that finally convinced her to move from her seat. The pilot replied, “I told her the first class section wasn’t going to New York.”
  8. The Transit vans I have seen in Thailand ,you could count on one hand .or less,or any boxed van . You need a pick up with a high back on it ,a Thai Transit van . You are in Pattaya, go to your local market ,find some pickups that are used as taxis , people carriers ect ask them thay will know of someone who can help you, for sure,

    Have you a friend or family in your home country that can send you some blades . Not knowing your modal, but a quick look at Google,are your blades short, that bolt on to a bottom knife?. If so would blades from a grass strimmer do the job ?remember this is Thailand , Thai's are good at makings things work , take the whole lot to a local guy and see what he says. As Arjen said some photos of the blades would help.
  10. Before this government arrived the death tolll on Thai roads ,for New Year or Songkram , was 300 ,you could almost put a bet on it . So if you take figures from then ,and compare them this year, 423 deaths ,or last years ,it is an actual increase of 30% .

    5th test , end of day 3 Khawaja 171 .S Mash and M mash on 98 and 63 , respectively, as for England ..................not a lot to say , Crane got his 1st ashes wicket ,good scalp to Khawaja. Australia will get a 250 1st inning lead and declare ,the wicket is holding up well , Lyon will do a lot more than the England spinners, TMS pundits are saying a draw ,I would put the smart money on an Australian win.
