  1. Was in Nampong a few months ago. When we pulled in to the large uncles farm at night. . About 15-kids and adults on those elevated decks outside.. Large pots cooking on an open fire. I thought a little like a scene from Apocolayse Now No drinking, not good for me as im an alcoholic. A girl sitting next to me schooling a young man on filling out a job application. Family. Uncle saw my interest in the farm and gave me a tour. I thought damn i wish i could live here but cannot. As a boy i walked down my street with my shotgun on my shoulder on the way to the woods. If i tried it today th
  2. 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
  3. 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.
  4. Wish i saw this earlier . Really wanted a burger and was staying at the Hyatt , saw Arnos but just went next door to the Mexican place. Will be back to Bangkok in 2 weeks and will try to get there.
  5. Jacko , many Thais are pissed . We would still be in Remand
  6. Jim the rude and crude have always been the most funny an accurate, they spoke the truth. Our Richard Pryor and the UK's Benny Hill. MM said Alice had moved to Bangkok.
  7. As an American i had to google Chubby Brown. "My Carona"
  8. A lovely video. I was looking for a new place to sail and came across PT. I stayed, Who the fuck is Alice?
  9. Now i know the crawl is next week , i will be in Bangkok Thanks to the poster for saving me the triip.
  10. Jacko, 90 day report also extended.? Meet you finally tonight at Cherry? We are having dinner in the alley if they allow us to split a meal . I eat very little but the TGF of course can eat the whole cow.
  11. very good to know i thought i would have to go on july 30
  12. Yes thanks, i visit the same places and should go back before the tourist return. Was at Crazy House and a stunning young lady came off the stage, i thought damn those lucky young guys but she came to me. A very good night LT 2000. Seldom could get a seat at Baccara. Is that angry old guy still at the door? The Rembrant hotel looks good, Consider Jasmine on 23. The rates were to high last year with the Japanese golf crowd but now 300 baht more than Rembrandt and a stumble away from Cowboy. Thanks again for posting,enjoyed your effort. Many i think are tiring of the covid post'
  13. Nkped. it is good to keep your post alive . We need to know about options i Know Martin and Kev Liked BPH, i dont. i may very well be wrong.There is an American insurance company ad. We know a thing or to because we have seen a thing or to. I undderstand you were happy with the Doctor, You have should have been in the OR whith in a hour not days i know a thing or to because iv seen a thing or two
  14. Glad you did well, thanks for the post. My GF had significant vision loss in her 20"s Took her to Phaythai Siracha. Total disaster. After waiting and the usual basic exam we were told eye doctor not here ,i did call before.. Not a fan BPH and your experience while good for you has me staying with Bumrungrad
  15. Thanks, I'm married to ANA Business/first because of points and miles but my son and brother live in Phoenix, delayed this years trip. I found a flight in Sept to BKK for $672 all in. Routing is acceptable and seat selection is available, also prem economy for about 1K.
  16. Thanks Bazle, i checked and the PI is also open to incoming flghts.
  17. I think it was a rare occurrance . Had i gone with the 65,000 month for a Visa, i would have transferred early in the month. If it was not coded FTT i would have time to make another one. I have not heard of this happening again. No longer an issue for me.
  18. nkped, there were 2 reports(Thai Visa) that BBB codedTransferwise deposits as in country transfers. Reason was the funds were routed through Kasikorn then BBB. The felllow explained that didn't work for him,Transferwise said they couldnt help. Had not heard of a problem since then. I also read that Immigratio prefers a neat recurring pension though not required. The direct deposit is solved now that we do that as the guys in the PI have beed doing. I am just waiting for the mail service to start again and will send my SS and OPM forms to Manila. I never plan to leave Thailand so DirectDeposi
  19. Gary as odd as it seems, Agents are legal in terms of the letter of the law. Spirit and intention of the law not, but TIT. It did seem BJ had planned to clean things up but we see how that went. I also have adequate Pension and Social Security so i do not want to leave 800,000 sitting in Bangkok Bank when i am happy with my 401k despite recent events. I have followed your posts' and appreciate talking about some of the difficult relationships you endured. It seems with your wife it was worth the wait. I have found a lady who seems very much the one. But i remember your admonishment th
  20. Let us know how it goes, i road down that way to replace tires on the bike only 10 km. Enough for me . Not so much the ride as the road construction and having someone on the back.. The hospital said the promotion is good until Friday.
  21. I would like the For Work Package 3,500 baht with add on Cancer screening labs #5 1200 baht. Question is are these prices continuing, i will probably hire a driver for 1/2 day and wait so would an appointment be advisable? Seems other than getting the labs the waiting would be for the ABD USN. Also the CTA is 9700 baht. I should hear from the guy tomorrow
  22. I am waiting on confirmation on the health package price. Having the usual labs, USN and Cta so hoping for a 1/2 day visit. Thought about taking the bike also but to far. Maybe look into the bus.35 baht sounds pretty good but not sure i want to be bounced about. Nams wants 1500 for 5 hours . I have a driver that probably needs the business, just read tallguys post and think my guy would jump at the ride.
  23. Thanks force, sounds like the ticket. I was going for the Thai elite but realized that was the wine talking.
  24. My brother visited last year. Loves German food so Naklua restaurants were going to be a treat. He ordered Nuremburg Sausages with German potato salad. I should steered him to the Brats as i thought the price was a bit low. "Bill, they are fucking hot dogs!" And not very good ones. Redemption came later with 1/2 roast duck, dumplings ,potato and Red Cabbage. 499baht.
  25. No, guilty conscience, thanks Jacko. You well explained the value of the OA. I missed it being good for 2 years. Not sucking up but that visa was an excellent solution. Hassle free for 4 years. The Thai consulate in DC must be wondering why there are no more OA apps anymore. Even if BCBS insurance wants to help they could not fill out the form. Plus the Thais want a rubber stamp on the form . I doubt BCBS has had a rubber stamp since the 1950's . My friend in Bangkok is an agent in Bangkok. I'll let him sort it.
