  1. I use CNX pest control, have done for about 10 years, they deal with termites, this is the managers number 091 858 2900. Speaks Thai only
  2. Quit smoking with the patches nearly a month ago. I really thought I would be a lifelong smoker, but somehow I have got through so far. Guess I had better change my avatar, still got the bald head though !
  3. Not a nice way to go...I feel sorry for him ...RIP
  4. Why not try Lawn Bowls? I have made many friends in CM there. Does not matter how old you are. People from 20-75 play regularly and it's fun. Check out the website or pm me for more info..www.chiangmailawnbowls.com.
  5. It's starting now. The mountain has a shroud around it, no clearly defined lines any longer. I don't know how bad it's gonna get but buy a decent mask to wear outside is my advice, and those flimsy ones people wear in hospitals won't cut the mustard, you really need to spend out on decent ones that will actually help you.
  6. Pray tell exactly what YOU have attempted to do to deal with immigration problems?
  7. Exactly. I choose NOT to use visa agents. It's my choice no debate required
  8. He's doing just fine right now, Parky's name always comes up when we have a managerial vacancy, but we are OK right now. Glad that Parky has done well for himself, it's always nice to see ex-players succeed as managers
  9. Bolton spelt backwards is NOTLOB...sounds good...I think it came from Monty Python sketch. Anyway not enough interest here in CM...just gonna let this run for now and when it falls off the first page I will probably ask for the thread to be closed
  10. Happy to be called a Farang...better than if you are Japanese and called Nippon...that sounds like some kind of bug spray!!!
  11. Well I consider it "home". I have invested 13 years of my life here. Have quite a number of friends who have also been here for a long time who also feel the same way. It is not perfect by a long way but I really feel at home here. The litmus test is really how I feel after being away, I go back to the UK at least once a year to visit my parents and children, grandchildren, and as much as I enjoy that it always feels good to be "home". I can't see me moving on, although I have always kept a couple of properties in the UK, they are more of an investment to help fund my retirement rather than an escape route. Yes I hate the burning season, the traffic jams, the thai driving style. But there are plenty more issues back in the UK that are not perfect either. I can hop on a plane and be in a tropical paradise within 2 hours, rather than the 14 it would take me to get to one from Europe, not to mention the cost. I can visit my son and grandson in BK by hopping on a plane for an hours journey. I play bowls at least once a week, meet friends there and make new ones, life is satisfying for me in Chiang Mai
  12. I found the rules by googling walking football rules.I can't understand why you can't find them. I can't remember exactly where though. But there is not much difference between 5 aside rules except you cannot run or jog....gotta walk Good luck to you BB, hope you can get something started down there. I'm just about to go out but will have another look when I get home, unless you post to say you have found them. Got them now www.walkingfootballunited.co.uk/rules-c1th6

  14. No worry that he's getting on, one of the guys who has agreed to play is 72, and he was actively playing until 18 months ago, although he's a goalkeeper. I hope to hear from him, and thanks for recommending it to him
  15. Outside, probably around 8 or 9 am...when it's cooler. Game lasts no longer than one hour with breaks for water every 15 minutes There is a full football facility for 5 or 6 aside on the road that leads from Big C Hang Dong Road to Global House. We are going to scope out the venue tomorrow to get some idea of prices and availability but a friend who has played proper football there before tells me it's around 700 baht an hour. I would like to start this within a few weeks...but Chaing Mai...I thought you were Bridlington bound?
