    Schools in the UK Are Removing Analog Clocks Because Students Can’t Tell Time

    I've still got my old sliderule, but found the abacus too big for my pocket.
  2. I live in a gated juristic body community and am a member of the Residents Committee. We have one resident who has refused to pay their community charges now for some 4 years. The property does not have its own post box or display its postal address outside the property so that we cannot deliver registered letters to the owner. Here are my questions:- 1. Is it illegal to NOT display your postal address on your property and NOT have a post box? The reason for not having these is blatantly obvious. 2. Are we allowed by law to refuse the owners the right to bring in their vehicles, as they are not contributing to the upkeep of the roads and security services? 3. Can we approach the electricity and water services to have the services cut off, as they use our infrastructure to reach the property? 4. What else can we do that is lawful to force the owner to pay their community fees? I would be most obliged if you would answer the above questions and give me any other information that you might feel will be helpful in resolving this problem.
  3. So, obviously, those of us who have pets need to get them inoculated against catching rabies, but how effective are the inoculations?
  4. Well done ginjag. I did the same at age 70 when I went touring Malaysia playing golf. Played 20 + golf courses in one month, then drove from Kuala Lumpur to Hua-Hin - about 1150kms in about 13 hours. You're only as old as you feel!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
  5. I have lived live in a gated community of some 40+ villas some 10kms south of Hua-Hin for nearly 11 years. The villas are of very good construction, all with private pools and gardens with a good mix of residents. The area is some 5 minutes from a 7km sandy beach with lots of good restaurants nearby. A Military hospital is some 10 minutes away and provides excellent service to foreigners at very low prices.There are rental properties within our complex, all 3 bedroom, 3 or more bathrooms, decent size kitchens. Internet connection is very good and reliable with 100 Mb down and 30 Mb up for 750 B per month. If you would like to know more then please just pm me. I hope that this has been some help to you and look forward to meeting you sometime if you would like to pop over for a drink and a chat you would be most welcome.

    Leaving your body to medical science?

    I live in Hua Hin and I would like to arrange to leave my body to medical science when I pass away. I have found that I could leave my body to a Bangkok teaching hospital, but they will only collect the body if you live within 100kms of Bangkok. Is it possible to donate my body to a hospital here in HH and how do you go about arranging this?

    unpolluted places for asthma and allergies?

    I would suggest that you try Hua-Hin. We have some of the best air quality in Thailand here, particularly if you stay on the southern side of HH. We have no industries in the area and the range of accommodation and restaurants is vast. You can catch a coach from Bangkok to HH for about 260 Baht that takes about 3.5 hours from the major coach station near the Chatuchak area, comfortable and reliable, but I would advise you to book it as it only seats about 25 people. Don't take the coach from the airport as this drops you about 3 miles north of HH whereas the other one will bring you into the centre. If you need more info just pm me.
  8. The statute of time limitations should not apply to ANY prosecution when the accused does not appear in court to defend themselves. That's the only way that justice can be seen to be fair to all.

    'LINE' not loading on windows 10

    I am trying to get 'LINE' to load on my computer, which runs on Windows 10. I can enter my email address and my telephone number and I have received an SMS with a 4 digit code to enter, but the box that says 'Next' does not change to allow me to enter the number. Please can anybody help with the next step?
  10. You say that you like walking on the beach and you won't find a nicer beach to walk along that the one at Khao Takiab (starts aprox 4 kms south of HH); it's about 7 kms long and backed by sea pines all the way. We also have very good local hospitals for which you only pay local Thai prices for treatment. One is a Military hospital and the other is the Hua-Hin General hospital, so no need to pay the exorbitant prices that the farang places charge, I know because I've used them and had excellent service from them. I'm like you and nearly 74 years old and have been here in HH for 10+ years. If you are into sport then we have some excellent golf courses around us. HH has a 'Music Society' which I have been intending to join for some time, but just haven't got around to it. Plenty of very reasonably priced restaurants of all varieties, plus some very upmarket places. Local transport as previously mentioned is available at very low prices along all the main roads, so you don't have to have a vehicle to get around. Good local shops selling all kinds of vegetables/drinks etc plus two very large shopping malls. We also have a local sea food pier where you can buy freshly caught fish etc. A new ferry service has recently opened up between the northern end of the Khao Takiab beach that goes to Pattaya once a day. High quality coach services go to Swampy airport for 350B and to Jatajak marker for 140B, so if you fancy a trip to Bangkok it doesn't cost much. We have excellent air quality all the year round and probably have one of the best climates in Thailand overall. I have attached a photo of the local beach mentioned above. If you require any further information just send me a personal email to me.
  11. Why do they all keep saying that the aircraft parts that have been washed up 'Might be from MH370'? They have identified serial numbers etc from some of these parts and it's blatantly obvious they came from MH370 and no other airline has reported loosing an aircraft so why not just accept that it's at the bottom of the Indian Ocean 'somewhere' and stop wasting vast sums of time and money. The people who were on the aircraft are dead and it's time for the families to accept this and close this tragic event.

    Huge fireball spotted in North of Bangkok

    I was playing golf in Hua Hin and saw this as it plunged to earth. The flight path appeared to be almost north to south - I was facing almost due north when I saw it and the very very bright 'head' was a brilliant white hot blue colour. I would hazard a guess that from my position it was about 15-20 degrees above the horizon when it burnt out. I have been lucky enough to have seen a large meteorite on two other occasions, both in the UK with this same characteristic colour, which I understand it gets from the metal content vapourising. The vapour trail was visible for minutes afterwards. A really spectacular sight to witness. My golfing partners; who didn't witness this, were very sceptical when I told them I was 99% certain that it was a meteorite that I'd seen. The 'usual shooting star' that a lot of people see when the annual Persiod shower is in evidence are said to be extremely small grain like objects, but this was much much bigger to have caused such a brilliant display. I wouldn't be surprised if parts of this are found sometime in the future.
  13. Hua Hin on the WEST COAST????? HH is on the south EAST COAST. If they can't even get it's location correct, what chance do they stand in having anything useful to contribute to its development?
  14. Don't, whatever you do get 'Bermuda'. I made this mistake and I'm thinking of digging it all up after nearly 8 years of TLC. It takes an awful lot of looking after with regular cutting/fertilising and watering. The 'Japanese' grass looks to grow beautifully and when given a decent haircut looks better than Bermuda. I've always been into my 'Lawns', but made one hell of a 'boobu' with this decision. Anybody got any ideas about the cost of the 'Japanese' in the Hua-Hin area please? I will probably need some 500+sq m of turf.
