  1. Bread Making Machine -recommendations

    I have the Morries machine as well, thanks for this now I know how to turn the light on, I thought it just didn't work!
  2. First one I've read so no. People need different things at different times and with any form of technology it changes constantly, so an up to date thread with new information is always welcome.
  3. It's not a case of peering through the gap to see the beach its a case of the general view which is surprisingly pleasant when it's not obstructed by the dirty old umbrellas. No I don't drink because I have to drive so it's not the bars for me, and I don't sit on the beach but I do like a walk along Beach Road and there is no doubt that it is a much more pleasant experience on the days when the umbrellas aren't there. I don't want to stop people from sitting on the Beach under an umbrella but what is wrong with just putting up the umbrellas when people need them, rather than creating a daily eyesore of ranks of unused chairs and umbrellas. Yes it is a lot better than it was with areas now left open but if they didn't leave the umbrellas out all the time to deteriorate in the sun maybe they wouldn't be in such a bad state.
  4. ........And the rest of us can see the beach and the ocean rather than 'two complete pratts' sitting amid 40 empty chairs and umbrellas.
  5. Indeed, that'll be the day when suddenly there isn't a backup of traffic in every direction. Amazing how much better the traffic seems to flow when the lights break.
  6. Noisy water pump - where to repair?

    If it's a Hitachi I think they are just noisy, mine has been from the day I bought it.
  7. New Tyres for Vios?

    I put some Firestone TZ700's from Cockpit on my Honda City 18 months ago and very happy with them. Very quiet on the road, I paid 8000 for 4 tyres (175/65/15) now on website at 2150 each. I imagine the Vios is a similar size tyre.
  8. Some more TM30 questions...

    Love that response. I know I can't afford to live here anymore, but I can't afford to leave either! If I give you my bank account details can you deposit a million or two please!!! Smug self satisfied responses like yours help no-one.
  9. Some more TM30 questions...

    17 for you 16 for me, the rules have always been there BUT the enforcement has only started in the last year or so. What we have done in the past counts for nothing.
  10. Massive petition calls for EU referendum re-run

    It was the number of signatures on the petition that the thread was originally about. The petition actually reached 4.15 million before it was closed, I quoted a figure from the beginning of this thread.
  11. Massive petition calls for EU referendum re-run

    I can't remember the exact numbers but it seems that of the 15/16 million who voted against Brexit 2.7 million are unhappy with the result. Presumably that means the other 12/13 million who voted to stay are happy to go along with the majority. Sounds like 27 million to 3 million in favour of Brexit to me! Or is that just twisting the figures? I'm sure no politician or self-serving big business man would do such a thing and Project Fear never happened. The country voted as it was asked to do and gave its answer, now just get on with it.
  12. My favourite has always been the Tesco/Lotus car park at On Nut.
  13. As always nothing is clear. Next month I anticipate (subject to Brit Embassy approval of wife's visa) being out of the country for 14-21 days. On my return I may well stay in Bangkok for a few days in a condo rented by wife's family before returning to my TM30 reported residence in Sattahip. The Bangkok office doesn't seem to require TM30s so no report there but when I get back to Sattahip it will appear that I/(wife as house owner) have failed to report the return to my residence within the required 24 hours. How can we possibly get it right when every Immigration Office/Officer applies the rules differently?
  14. water softening

    Got it thanks, and the sign had 'salt' on it in English as well.
  15. Magic. Typical Bangkok Bank, if something is working well change it! Just emailed the address shown on their website for new details or procedures but the e-mail address they provide is not working!
