  1. What are you eating? (food porn)

    I am OK with collagen casings at the moment. My problem is fat fingers and no butchers twine so I am tying the sausages off with the casing and wasting a lot of the casing. OTOH the sausages are great. I have some friends who go back to the UK and I generally ask nicely if they can bring back a kg of sausage herbs and casings. I had thought of asking someone to bring me a stuffer back but they are relatively heavy. Ali Express looks like the best bet at the moment for sundries and Weschenfelders in Nothumberland have greta sausage mixes but they will not ship to Thailand as there are too many problems involved. http://www.weschenfelder.co.uk/sausage-making-ingredients.html

    I have just read the thread above and had a look at sausage stuffers and butchers twine so I will give it a go next week. Thanks again.
  3. 90 day report at Khampaeng Phet

    I haven't spoken to Mike but I have been looking on the internet and found a couple of interesting sites. KFC is quick and easy as an improvement on the market chicken. It is usually once a month. The problem in the UK was down to a new contract for fresh daily deliveries and the contractor fauked to meet the deadlines. How much do you want for your breadmaker? I don't need one but I think my mate may be interested.
  4. quote from the OP. " Asked about sources saying that either National Security Adviser McMaster or Chief of Staff Kelly, or both, might be leaving, White House spokesman Raj Shah on Thursday did not address the possibility. He said, "the president has full confidence in each member of the team." The most important and vital question is, does every member of the team have full confidence with President Trump?
  5. 90 day report at Khampaeng Phet

    I got there at 08.25 Wednesday morning and they were not open but it wasn't a problem as I went on to the DLT for the truck to be examined and tax sticker to be issued etc. Back to Immigration who were open by then. Down to Robinsons who don't open before 10 am (and were closed), over to Makro to look for a sausage stuffer (mai mee0 and onto BigC for a bulk shop. Down to the DLT and pick up my tax etc that was waiting for me. Back to Robinson upstairs to look for butchers twine (duh?) and sausage stuffers, mai mee again. IMHO Robinsons are not worth bothering with. Went to the KFC there and 2 people in front of me. After waiting 5 minutes only one had been served (fast food eh) so I went back to BigC and got a KFC there in 2 minutes. Back to Makro for the other bulk shop and back home. Easy day.
  6. I did my 90 day report at KPP yesterday and was in and out in 15 minutes. No request for a TM28 or TM30 asking if you have been away elsewhere in a hotel etc. They are improving but at about half the rate of a glacier receding. There still only seems to be 2 people working in the office and the rest, if you see them, just ignore you.
  7. UK pensions

    I used to get my pension paid into my UK bank account and took it out by ATM. I then got it transferred directly and it costs about £3 a month and I specified transfer FROM the UK in GBP and KBank does the exchange at a slightly higher Forex than the TT exchange rate. The drawback is that the UK pays my pension on a Wednesday but I don't normally see it until the following Tuesday. That does not include any Thai bank holidays which extend the payment date. Other than that it is simple and easy.

    Thank you for that link. I had a quick scan and it looks interesting so I will have a better look later.
  9. You could always put colinneal on your ignore list and then you wouldn't have to read his posts. I am sure he wouldn't mind. Thank you for your post. I didn't think that anybody ever read them. You can put me on your ignore list as well if you like. I certainly won't mind if you do. I may even do the same to you.
  10. What are you eating? (food porn)

    That is where I have been but I was hoping that there would be a place in Thailand That does them. After all there are a lot of Thai and farang suasages sold in the country so somebody must be making them. I am also looking for butchers twine #4 size. In the UK it is about £.50 a roll and on Lazada over 2,000 baht.
  11. How much time do you spend helping the disabled in Thailand or anywhere else for that matter?
  12. Extinction Event: Dinosaur Planet Closing Down

    There used to be a lot of bars there when it was known as Washington Square.
  13. What are you eating? (food porn)

    It is sort of on topic but I am trying to buy a sausage stuffer here in Thailand. Unfortunately I live in rural Khampaeng Phet and there is nothing around here, not even at the new Robinsons that opened a couple of months ago. I am looking for a hand cranked horizontal or vertical model, perhaps 1.5 or 2kg capacity with a nozzle of 28 mm diameter and perhaps 180mm long. I can use my grinder but the nozzle is cone shaped and if I push the skin on too hard it splits. I can only get a couple of sausages filled before it runs out and I have to reload the skins. The grinder/stuffer I use is a George Foreman model and it is difficult to load the mince and ram it down as the top tray keeps rising to let air into the stuffer. I am looking for something like these below. If anybody has any idea can they please post it or pm me? Thanks in hope.

    I usually let it drain a while before filling the pasty.
