  1. I hesitated to post here, as its not really a matter for disclosure on a forum, but here goes. I have over 8,000 hours on the B777- 200 and 300 ER. Boeings are very nice aircraft to fly, understandable ( as opposed to Airbus) and relatively easy to fly. I used to say to my colleagues that I could teach my Grandmother to fly a B777 in no time at all. I am retired now of course, but it is apparent to me, and to the airline pilot community as a whole, that Boeing have lost the plot and lost their soul, aided in great part by the incompetence of the FAA, something that is not only saddening,

  2. In these depressing times, I've put together a picture gallery from some happier days at the Cherry Bar. (from 2006-2011). If you visited the bar then, you will recognize a few familiar faces, some who are sadly not with us today and maybe even a younger version of yourself.

  3. Greetings Monkeywatchers, core coon crap for keeping calm and carrying on, and welcome to more overtures from the Land of Misery. The Thailand pandemic panic rumbles on, with the authorities still trying their best to scare the shit out of everyone, and they’re certainly succeeding in some cases. Now we’re all for taking sensible precautions but some people seem to be dressing up like they’re going on a day trip to Chernobyl. Pattaya’s favourite sport of balcony diving is under way again, with a young bloke plummeting to his doom from the fifth floor of an apartment block. Reports sa

  4. Walking Street, yesterday afternoon. Because the area has a high concentration of bars/gogos etc, which are now closed, the area looks bleak and deserted. Will it reopen in its pre covid form? I suspect not. Will or should it become more diverse, with an input of shops, enclosed good quality restuarants etc?

  5. Work is progressing slowly on WS. You can't see because of the shadows, but I there was a guy hunched down below the concrete arch as the heavy equipment above was banging away on the concrete cross piece. And here he is, barefoot and barehands, and no hardhat.

  8. Jacko as expected BS. I was offered the Moderna in Oct. Not helpful. He will be at the hospital today 0830 to try for the Astra vaccine this month. I will report back his results today. As i have posted i dont care what vaccine i get as even the Chinese crap will keep you out of the ICU. I am an old dude with a lifelong career in Trauma/ Er Nursing i accept my mortality. It is my choice to drink and ride on my unemployed Go Go girls bike who despite being Thai does not seem to accept we drive on the left side. And dont be behind her because thats on you pal. But these risks are my choices.

  11. Business was bad. The boss had to lay off somebody and he narrowed it down to two people: Mary or Jack. It was difficult because they were both good workers. Rather than flip a coin, he decided he would let go the first one who used the water cooler the next morning. Mary came in the next morning with a terrible hangover after partying all night. She went to the cooler to take an aspirin. The boss came up to her and said, 'Mary, I've never done this before, but I have to lay you or Jack off.' 'Could you jack off? she said. I feel like shit this morning.'

  12. On the ongoing saga what will kill Bill first. His crazy GO GO girl on her bike or the lack of the vaccine. I do have an update perhaps helpful. As to the girl, we were behind a Motorcycle Taxi who stopped at the intersection. Now these guys generally know what they are doing so you would think its a good idea to wait and see what he sees. Nope she drives around him and off into the fray. OT i am registered on several sites but seems October with no real plan. I now have a confirmed Appt. at St Louis Hospital with a written slip allowing me to travel. July30. The AZ. I understand there ar

  14. The new playground for young and old adults under the 3rd Rd flyover is done. Completely enclosed in chicken wire so children can safely leave their parents to play without having to worry about them running out into traffic. Sure hope they don't intend to mix stationary exercise equipment in the same area as football.

  15. Heavy rain last night for several hours. Some damage to beach. Work ongoing in respect of both sand removal/repositioning and I suspect filter checks at the pumps.

  16. Almost 14 months on, the eye is fine. Something I thought of. They clearly wanted to see if my insurance was going to pay for it. This was Bangkok Hospital after all. Don’t know if the surgery would have been scheduled sooner, but I should have told them don't wait for the insurance, put it on my credit card.

  22. Really enjoyed Billions, the early seasons. Kind of lost its way the last couple, but still watchable. The new Dexter sounds exciting. Looking forward to it! Dexter was one of the best series ever! Saturday June 26th was a beautiful day here at the beach. Lots of activities, things have really opened up. Late morning my wife insisted on watching "one, maybe two episodes" of the new Bosch...latter that evening we finished. Streamed the entire season in one day. A day we should have been out and about! Was excellent...finished the series nicely and set the stage for a future Bo

  23. No lines for today's grand opening of Taco Bell. Nice landscaping job at the Edge. Too bad the overhead utility lines ruin the view.

  24. A word of caution for anyone thinking of travelling to Thailand from the UK. With a very large percentage of the adult population now fully vaccinated, the policy of the UK government seems to be that they are not going to be concerned about the number of people who have Covid-19, only about the number who are hospitalised or die. So, with many restrictions already lifted, with more to come on the 19th, an ever larger proportion of the population will be infected with Covid-19. Furthermore, the symptoms (if any) of having Covid-19 after being doubly vaccinated are very similar to ha

  25. The advertised registration at BHP was a complete cluster. Whatever they had reserved (250?) was gone by 1 am on 1 July. Clued in by FB, I'm registered for a shot at the Pak Chong hospital through Korat Prompt. You'll need a browser that translates to English. Chrome worked. It took my Chonburi address without complaint. Skeptical it will come to anything but falls in the category of it can't hurt, I think.

  28. Only seen a couple of these self-service coffee machines scattered around. Seems like it would be a good money maker. Although if you like your coffee with an herbal boost, expect to pay double. The above is on Nern Plub Wan, close to the Chinese temple they started building in 2018.
