  1. SiSePuede419 is spot on. You need some comeback, and you will not get any if you are not here.
  2. U.S. citizens moving to Thailand

    Ubon Joe Knows All. Listen to what he says! Come on Joe, tell the Yankees what they need to know!
  3. Go fund me? - Go fund yourself.

    Scouse 123 is spot on.
  4. 31 Days ?

    Yes you will be charged 500 thb for a day's overstay - in Phuket that is. Just pay up - they do not care.
  5. Meeting someone else back home

    You sound like a total Di*khead. Get a life mate!
  6. Good ol' Ubon Joe. His replies are always spot on, concise and apposite. He should/could be an Immigration lawyer - tho' I know he gives all his sage advice for free on these Forums. I am positive there are hundreds of people in debt to him. Well Done Joe!!!
  7. Quite a few e.g. airline pilots/oil workers etc. etc. commute to work here and there. It is really no issue at all - just as long as you are not working in the LoS.
  8. Kiwibatch and Minnehaha are right in their posts - Maca Root is very good - but it costs about 20% more in Thailand than it does in North America. I have used it for 20+ years, and it is better than the Crabtree and Evelyn product, as well Taylor's of Bond street - both being a lot more costly than the Maca. If you use a brush rather than e.g. scoop out a dob of the Maca root and put it on your face, you will only get 4-5 months out of it. I use Fusion Gillette - silly price (a Gillette guy told me it is 'cos with beards being in fashion, they have had to up their prices thro' diminishing sales - tanx a laht Gillette)! A blade can last me 6 weeks - Gillette try get you to use one a week with their misleading "blue stripe" on it, that goes white when the blade is "kaput". But it is not! But I shall try Maca root does not smell at all, the Crabtree and Taylor's have a scent. I will try the Tesco blades etc. just for fun.
  9. Charity boss stole £1.3 million donated to help homeless people

    This is why I am inclined to give mainly to the Salvation Army, and Rotary. Where 90% of the donations go to the people to whom it is meant to go. This was a reputable survey, done by creditable Accountants I believe. Many of the other "Charities", who e.g. post harrowing videos of starving and fly-blown kids on TV, took 90% for themselves - and 10% for the kids. A wicked world I fear.
  10. Same problem. Docs in Phuket said do not worry. Laxatives a no-no. Had a colonoscopy - few diverticulae - but no real worries. I eat lots of fibre (oats and stuff) and so on. Feel fine. Exercise pretty well daily. Tried a thing called "Peg" here in Canada that did work. But I am 79 now, and I think (hope??) it is a function of age. This getting old.... no fun. I'd not worry too much. Drink lots of water as other Posters have said. Hang in there Mate - all will be OK!! Mark my words.
  11. Returning To The UK

    ColinNeil's post - good on yer. Spot on Mate!
  12. SuperAl is my new Hero. Tank de Lawd for humour guys!
  13. It is nice to be a "kept man" - is it not? Stay where your wife is happy, it is not all about Me Me Me.
  14. Thai Advertisement on Google Homepage

    Try: https://www.google.ca/?gws_rd=ssl#q=adguard works OK for me.
