  1. That's pretty much what everyone in New England called it when I was growing up there...Anyway, I certainly wouldn't want to be done in while weed whacking!
  2. I have worried about this quite a bit since I got an electric 'weed whacker' on-line...the only way to power it is by a heavy duty extension cord..all of our electric panels have Safe-T-Cut circuit breakers, but I never really knew they could help prevent electrocution. I am still going to be very careful when the grass is moist.

    wanting to learn basic south words

    The word for tailbone is different in Southern Thai. Central Thai =kraduk kon kop [กระดูกก้นกบล] literally 'frog's add bone' Southern Thai 'moong' Now you know...

    Trip to songhkla

    Technically accurate, but most people refer to both Samila and Chalathat beaches collectively as Samila beach.

    Trip to songhkla

    The 'dark side' is still there, but nothing like it used to be...very quiet. Most of the services are still available. OffShore was a boutique for a long while, not it is a kiwi expat bar. Cosmos is the same, but not many staff. Not sure about Office...anyway, still good for a trip down memory lane but don't expect a wild night in any of those bars...

    Trip to songhkla

    You'll be very surprised by all the changes if you haven't been there for 15 years. It's generally very safe -- the main threat to your safety will be on the roads. I hope you enjoy your trip and please let us know how it goes.
  8. Just a head's up that the next Thai Fight will be held in Haad Yai at the Lan Khon Meaung Arena in Klong Hae. I noticed they put up a huge billboard promoting it here in Ranode. Unfortunately the fights promo website (http://www.thaifight.com/ ) doesn't include basic info like the fight card or how much the cost of admission is... Anyway, these are usually pretty big events playing to nationalist elements and are televised on Channel 3...You can expect a few farang boxers to get their asses kicked...

    wanting to learn basic south words

    'haa roey!' (ฮาโรย) is an old Southern interjection of excited exasperation similar in meaning to 'Jeez', 'Just do It' or 'Get on With it'...this came out of my wife's mouth as she was playing Snakes&Ladders with a bunch of 7-year-olds...Also, that game in Thai is called 'bandai-ngoo' (ladder-snake for the literally)

    wanting to learn basic south words

    Here's an idiom in Southern Thai that is fairly close to its English language idiom 'ants in your pants': mod chaay waan (waan being the southern Thai word from ass)

    Pay rate thesis/essay grammar check

    I think you really need to get a look at the raw copy and get a feel for it first, rather than say 'so much per page' or 'so much for word'. It can range from basically coherent and just in need of a grammatical touch-up to mind-numbing incoherence. I have been doing this for extra income for many years now and have built up a small base of repeat customers for theses, academic papers and the like. In fact, the extra income made though contacts is one of the few good things to come out of my university teaching stints, which never seem to pay well. Another factor to consider when giving a cost estimate is how long you have to complete it.

    Ferry service across the Gulf of Thailand ?

    According to their website, it is just 1,250 baht...seems like excellent value for anyone wanting to bypass Bangkok...also, they are offering a 15% discount on all r/t tix through June 30, according to the same website's promotion section.
