  1. Today
  2. I have no idea about the reservoirs but all of my neighbours have been capturing rainwater for washing etc...Personally my monthly water bill for July was 30 baht!!!
  3. The last update was almost one month ago and I was wondering about the water situation in Pattaya now. Certainly less demand this year into next will help that situation at the expense of others.
  4. edit: I answered and then thought we might be off track.
  5. Puerto Rican rapper Lloyd Banks was on television with British TV host Anne Diamond when he used the word 'manana'. Diamond asked him to explain what it meant. Lloyd said that the term means "maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe the next day, maybe the day after that. Perhaps next week, next month, next year. Who cares?" The host turned to Irishman Shay Brennan who was also on the show and asked him if there was an equivalent term in Irish. "No. In Ireland we don't have a word to describe that degree of urgency," replied Brennan.
  6. Although it's a little different in the countryside these days in the US; not by much. It's still common in my part of Texas to get your first rifle before a bicycle; drive a tractor well before a car, and then it's much more likely to be a pickup. It's similar for me in the Thai countryside; i.e., if you only watch MSM, or monitor city type media you might assume most Thais are taxi drivers, bargirls, or subsistence farmers. Like anywhere else there seems to be a more or less silent majority who want mostly to be left to themselves and when change does occur it is very slow.
  7. They're still working on cleaning out the muck in the drains. Also noticed they've put in curbs to block storm water runoff to the beach at the low points from Pattaya Klang north. Kind of self-defeating IMHO if the goal is clear the roads of flood waters ASAP. Wonder if they'll close the swing gate once the tide comes back in.
  8. Over on the south end of Buakhao, crews are taking down old, unused utility lines.
  9. The finishing touches, and stocking the new 7-11 today. And just up the soi work is progressing slowly on another market next to Nirun.
  10. Big news.... this pandemic is devastating British aviation
  11. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-53659844 Savage times.......
  12. Vpn another brilliant post. I was a young boy in a semi rural area. Safe handling of firearms was absolute. My son , Eagle scout and engineer, was well schooled in safety in the scouts. The ridiculous state programs teach nothing useful. sorry i know ot
  13. Yesterday
  14. As a kid we didn't have a fancy hi-fi. For Christmas one year I got a transistor radio. AM only in those days. I took it with me everywhere on my bicycle listening to KSFO San Francisco which was jazzy and also broadcast Giants and 49er games. One year I got some childhood disease and was quarantined to my room with my radio where I recall the following songs playing. The first is Bossa Nova and I had no clue what that was.
  15. I'm am not melancholy but in these current times it might be appropriate to "keep dancing; let's break out the booze and have a ball"
  16. Radio Interview Note: This is an exact transcript of National Public Radio (NPR) interview between a female broadcaster, and US Army General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting his military installation. Woman Radio Host: "So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?" General Reinwald: "We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing, archery, and shooting." Woman Radio Host: "Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?" General Reinwald: "I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range." Woman Radio Host: "Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?" General Reinwald: "I don't see how, "We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm." Woman Radio Host: "But you're equipping them to become violent killers." General Reinwald: "Well, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?"
  17. Sort of a version of an optimist/pessimist and a half full glass of water. They bring in an engineer to break the tie who tells them ... the glass is the wrong size.
  18. Here's a nerdy one told me many years ago in my uni days by a computer science major. A practical IQ test is devised in which the curtains in a room have been set on fire. A bucket of water and fire extinguisher are supplied in the room. A physicist, an accountant and a mathematician are tested. The physicist enters the room, looks at the bucket of water and fire extinguisher and says, "The fire retardant can smother the flames more efficiently than the water." He uses the fire extinguisher to put out the fire. The accountant enters the room, looks at the bucket of water and fire extinguisher and says, "Water is cheaper than flame retardant." He uses the bucket of water to put out the fire. The mathematician enters the room, looks at the bucket of water, then looks at the fire extinguisher and says, "Yes, I can solve that," and leaves.
  19. Last week
  20. Often still happens today...
  21. Vp i loved that. Before i changed careers, more pussy in hospitals than in an office. I was an accountant. My mentor explained we make 3 sets of books. One for the bank showing we are doing well, one for the IRS showing we are losing money and one for the owners showing the real story. Not a public company so possible back then.
  22. There are three people applying for the same job. One is a mathematician, one a statistician, and one an accountant. The interviewing committee first calls in the mathematician. They say "we have only one question. What is 500 plus 500?" The mathematician, without hesitation, says "1000." The committee sends him out and calls in the statistician. When the statistician comes in, they ask the same question. The statistician ponders the question for a moment, and then answers "1000... I'm 95% confident." He is then also thanked for his time and sent on his way. When the accountant enters the room, he is asked the same question: "what is 500 plus 500?" The accountant replies, "What would you like it to be?" They hire the accountant.
  23. Hope you take pics without her arms in the way though . . . 😁
