Re: A great mind moves to the next plane of existence...

Jim Bowen is definitely a Brit thing. Had to Google him, and still don't have a clue. ;) :D But hey, maybe the $700 ($s or pounds?) will not make it into the estate, so you are home free unless someone from the estate reads this. (I would say something about the $700 disappearing into a black hole, ...

A great mind moves to the next plane of existence...

Stephen Hawking dead at 76

A great mind, a sense of humor, a common touch and a will to overcome obstacles. Indeed a fine example of a rare human being.

Re: Fun things about Thailand

Just as a follow up, my wife's brother was able to find the coffee I wanted in a Bangkok Lotus, so bought it for me and shipped it via Kerry. It should arrive tomorrow. 6 bags of Ethiopian Sidamo and 2 bags of Costa Rican medium roast for a total of 2 lbs of decent coffee! Not cheap at around 1600 b...

Don't be this guy

This is a prime example of why many farang are looked down on here. I was at a club last night where a friend of mine works. They have young ladies who sit with the customers and chat with them, but always by invitation. A VERY large (and by this I mean grossly overweight) American (I think based on...

Re: You might be a foodie if...

The first sign of senility is not being able to remember how to spell senility! 5555 I miss decent wines at decent prices. Wine here is just ridiculous. A $10 bottle of wine sets you back $30, and a $30 bottle of wine runs around $100. You cannot enjoy a GOOD bottle of wine here as the price just ma...

Re: You might be a foodie if...

Yeah, the wine was a bit on the weak side. But buying wine in Thailand is always a coin flip and you will ALWAYS pay more than it is worth. I was looking for a decent Valpolicella, but decided the TW would prefer a Sangiovese. I got her a French Bordeaux for her BD and she thought it was a bit heavy...

You might be a foodie if...your TW doesn't know how to cook Western food, so you cook your own BD meal because BK just don't cut it for a birthday dinner! 5555 Wagyu ribeye, medium rare, steamed broccoli and cauliflower with a jalapeno cheese sauce, mushrooms sauteed in butter with garlic and flambi...

Re: Fun things about Thailand

555, two visits to BK??? THAT explains everything! ;) Tesco's Customer Service seems to be pretty much there for show only: their motto seems to be 'please don't ask us any REAL questions'. :roll: I assume, like me, you did not get an answer other than 'sorry', along with 'it is fixed now' when it r...

Fun things about Thailand

I gotta admit, this one made me laugh: I use a sig line in my email just like here, by Robert Heinlein. I wrote Tesco Lotus to ask why the fark I couldn't get anyone at the store here to order things they stock in Bkk. The reply started: Dear Mr. Robert Heinlein... So what do you think the odds are ...

Re: BOOYAH! A place to list good shite..

I think the line on Hill Street Blues was 'let's be careful out there.' :D

Yep, I remembered it right. It's been a LONG time since That show. ;) 5555
