  1. Helmet Checks - Green Book Requirement Again ?

    I keep a photo copy under my seat. I have been asked for it once and I made a big performance of finding it, 'Sure I Have it. Just a moment I know I made a copy'. The young female officer was annoyed when I eventually produced it. john
  2. Used oil collection/recycling point

    The m/cycle garage I use, has it's waste oil collected. To the best of my knowledge the 'Collecter' pays a small fee for the oil. I will visit on Saturday morning and ask about the details. john
  3. Christmas Dinner

    Had lunch at Yummy today, Toni confirms Christmas dinner on 25th. Turkey is still a problem. He has 10 on order from one source and has made enquires with Macro. Last year he had 165 covers in 3 sittings, which made for a great deal of work. B750 is what he is asking, half in deposit on booking, same as last year. Shot of my, Lamb Shank, today at Yummy. Rob is also searching for turkeys and confirms 23rd, B499, half on booking as deposit. I think we have a Yank celebration due so the Turkey story may enlighten us more. john

  9. March up Doi Suthep

    Having watched 'Freshmen' being 'Paraded' around camp during their first week all I can say is it's a Thai thing. I could not imaging freshmen in Europe or the states being so treated. john
  10. March up Doi Suthep

    Living next to CM Uni it is amusing to see large squads of 'Freshmen' marching and even doubling around the grounds during their first week, normally led by a Guidon bearing 2nd year. john
