    Hey you are not allowed to post pics or videos of BMs girlfriends on here. Now please remove this video of Ewenice before she sees it and blasts me for sending it to you.

    I understand it has been mentioned before, the National Carriers part financed by their Govt I think will possibly survive this but with casualties, however the privateers will be on first to hit the wall. However, with some EU Countries relaxing lockdown rules, hopefully lifting of some travel restrictions is a matter of weeks in some cases.

    Thanks, but hardly an expert. More like too much time on my hands now. I stumbled on to the article just posted because of your mention of percolation. That got me to wondering if they were using that method to help recharge the aquifer used in Bangkok. I didn't see anything on that subject, but the use of an aquifer in Isan did pop up. Which also points out how we live in a wonderful age where information on pretty much any subject is just a search engine and a couple of mouse clicks away.

    At least one region is looking into tapping the aquifer for water. New study into use of huge aquifer in Isan NAKHON RATCHASIMA: A new study will explore ways of bringing up water from a huge underground aquifer for use in four northeastern provinces - Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum, Buri Ram and Surin. The artesian basin stores about 16,000 million cubic metres of groundwater and was found relatively recently, a Groundwater Resources Department official said on Wednesday. The Nakhon Ratchasima-based Zone 5 Groundwater Resources Office is responsible for groundwater use in the four provinces. Office director Surat Buaphan said that if the groundwater can be brought up it would be a boon for farmers in the Northeast who rely on rainfall during the wet season for agriculture. Their land lies unused during the dry season due to lack of water. Of the four provinces under his office, Nakhon Ratchasima, Chaiyaphum and Buri Ram have already been declared drought-hit zones this year. Surin is not included as it has a sufficient supply of surface water, thanks to rain brought by former tropical storm Podul. In Nakhon Ratchasima, artesian wells have been sunk at all villages so it was quite certain there would be sufficient water for consumption this dry season, he said. Groundwater from artesian wells at more than 400 schools is being processed for use as drinking water, and can also be used by people from nearby communities, he said. Of the estimated 16,000 million cubic metres of water in the aquifer, only about 11% of it is being pumped for use. The department study will explore ways of making the most use of it.

    Have been consuming copious amounts of red wine during our isolation. Making a serious dent in our liquor cabinet and wine racks. Gone through a few very high end bottles that I normally save for special occasions figuring "better drink this in case we're going to die". Costco has been delivering most of our groceries, replenishing wine, and spirits. Here in America one goes to college to learn how to drink beer and tequila. I was positively a scholar, received a PhD in tequila but pretty much gave it up after school. Graduated to fine scotch and other whiskies. The last decade or so high end tequilas have become very popular here. 2-3 years ago my circle of friends began to pursue the worm. Have developed a taste for various reposados, anejos and other exotic mezcals. Unfortunately my old body does not handle spirits as well as it used to. Minimize spirits, stick with wine. Trying very hard to maintain the 5 o'clock rule. But many days have fallen back on "It's always 5 o'clock somewhere in the British Empire".
