Re: Seasons greetings from Bangsaphan

I even wish the beach dogs a Merry Christmas and made up some tasty red and green doggie biscuits. They glow in the dark so they should be able to see them.

Re: Bangsaphan free ambulance service

Thanks Bukky!! This accident prone farang needs all the help he can get, but he's so cheap he'd *walk* to the hospital rather than pay for an ambulance.

Re: On the dark side of Bang Saphan

From a Mose Allison song: "Her mind's on vacation but her mouth is working overtime."

But as one who hated Nixon for years, Gore Vidal said after he died, "Yes it's ironic, but I miss him terribly." But then Nixon was crafty and had style.

The cashew is in the same family as poison ivy....

The cashew, being in the same family as poison ivy, can cause a similar allergic reaction. The "nut" is not a nut at all, but rather a "accessory fruit". Makes a good wine too, as visitors to "little" Ko Chang (off Ranong) know.

Re: Foreigner unwanted - nothing for Farang

>>I frequently bring along a picture (that I take on my camera, or get from the internet) of >>what I'm trying to buy, since verbal communication is usually the problem.

Re: Southern bus terminal closed

Not sure whether it's back open again. It's pretty funny arriving in the dirt parking lot of a bar, as the end point of your BS to BKK trip. I caught a cab in only a minute who took me to my KSR area GH in about 20 minutes. Easy. I wish the bus station would stay there. You can't argue with a huge b...

A katoy perspective on being drafted into the Army

An old article, but an interesting predicament. “No transgender would ever want to be in the army,” Prempreeda said. “They’ll cut your hair off. They’ll destroy your femininity. You will do everything you can to avoid it.” http://www.globalpost.com/dispatch/thailand/101007/military-conscription-tran...

Thailand's 'funeral books'

Books about the dead are popular mementos at Thai funerals, but they also offer historical insights and even classic Thai recipes :o

Re: Bangsaphan bird buildings

Reminds me that much of the available housing in Vancouver is now being gobbled up by indoor marijuana cultivators. Much talk like "my neighbor's a vegetable", and "Even if we're not home,we'll leave the lights on for you, dear".
