  1. Well now, perhaps Chiang Mai needs a "Dude Ranch".
  2. Thank you Harry, for proving that posts can be helpful without displaying your superiority.
  3. Where to buy in Chiang Mai? It has been suggested as one ingredient in an anti mosquito & flea mix for cats. "My recipe for cats is very similar to the one for dogs. Mix 8 ounces of pure water with 4 ounces of organic, unfiltered apple cider vinegar, plus 10 drops of neem oil and 10 drops of catnip oil. Cats and essential oils can be tricky, so we want to leave essential oils out of the kitty recipe." Neem oil is a vegetable oil pressed from the fruits and seeds of the neem (Azadirachta indica), an evergreen tree which is endemic to the Indian subcontinent and has been introduced to many other areas in the tropics. It is the most important of the commercially available products of neem for organic farming and medicines.
  4. Those condotel internet prices are insanely rediculous. Whoever is asking that is dreaming and there is much for far less. Why don't you send an email to John Ellis that has many very nice rooms to rent on a monthly basis.
  5. Making a deal with the devil & in the future the devil has you by the short hairs.
  6. To say nothing of making a deal with the devil trying to gain manipulative influence (spare parts, overhaul, expertise, joint training) over Thai military in the future. The stated mission: Neighboring countries already have subs. How rediculous. Where is the sense of priorities ?
  7. I bought some N95 at the TESCO super highway / flower market area. Packaged noted used for painting, sanding etc. Also a model just a bit more expensive - R95 - supposedly better yet.
  8. Is Nimmanhaemom Road named after some distant relative?
  9. Good points, thanks for posting Demin. Headaches are recent though, so it's probably time for an eye test and a new pair of glasses, preferably with anti-glare coating. I just don't want to spend a fortune on frames again, that's all. Stubby, Also see if you see any improvement in the headaches after the March bad air (actually possibly mid Fe4b - Mid Apr) is gone.
  10. Hmm, registration requirement also has implications for Burmese illegally working as security guards. Something quite common up north.
  11. KittenKong, blackcab, I thank both of you very much for your very helpful advice.
  12. Thanks for reply. I had not considered this. I respect your experience in these matters, so have to ask if there is not some simple way to negate such a negative possibility.
  13. I know that it is possible to change the condo fiscal year to run 01Oct - 30Sep, as long as owners have approved it at an AGM/EGM. In order to defend such actions legitimacy at an upcoming EGM, I need the following information / specific references to condo law / regulation that I can reference to refute our condo JP claim that it is illegal to make such a fiscal year change. Questions: 1. Can the AGM vote for change be confirmed by a simple majority show of attendees hands, or is a certain percentage of floorspace required (25%, 33%, 50%, etc). 2. What followup actions by condo representatives (JP, committee, mgr, accountant, etc) are necessary to legally register the change with government office(s). Background: At a recent AGM at my Chiang Rai condo we were scheduled for a vote to change the fiscal year dates. One owner asked the JP if it was ok to make such a change. BTW, the condo pays this JP only 5,000 thb per month, and that may have a bearing on his replies. The JP initially replied that it was too difficult to do because it required coordination with and inspection visits by several government agencies (which he refused to name). I replied that my condo in Jomtien had already done so without referencing any great difficulties, and I requested the JP to elaborate on what he considered such great difficulties. The JP hummed & hawed a bit, and then pulled out a pocket phone from which he read supposed condo law stating that the condo fiscal year must run from 01Jan - 31Dec, and can not be changed. He went on to state that my condo in Jomtien had therefore acted illegally. Attendees at the AGM could not refute the JP, so decided not to vote on the issue now (AGM) but to wait until such time as someone can provide proof that the JP's hasty anwear was either wrong or not the full story. I was the one tasked with obtaing answears to the questions I am asking above. If I can come up with specific references that justify the legitimacy of a fiscal year change, and specific actions that need to be accomplished, we could then take a vote, if still desired, at an upcoming EGM already being planned to decide other issues. Further Background: My condo in Pattaya did it years ago but the new mgt there is under administrative fire from owners (for other reasons) and is not interested in being responsive to my current queries. Evidence that other condos have done this is shown by the following tv link / thread:
  14. Mountains in distance not clear like in January; but weather up here supposedly not as polluted this year. However, for the past 2 weeks I've had a never ending cough & mild headaches which I'm 100% sure is related to the underlying small particles in bad air. Same thing happens to me every March up here.
