In Topic: Happy New Year

01 January 2018 - 03:02

It is 9 PM (21:00 for some of you) here in Huntspatch, and a balmy 19 F (-7 Celsius).

The airfares were utterly outrageous, or I would have arranged things to do New Years Eve in Bangkok again this year.  Maybe 2018...

In Topic: Used Smart Phone For Back Up

30 December 2017 - 06:57

I bought a cheap Thai-only GSM flip phone years ago.

it is so old it thinks the current year is fiction, so I have to play with it every time I go to Bangkok, to get the calendar days and dates to line up.

But it still works just fine for what I need to do, which is phone calls and the occasional text.

In Topic: Any New Jokes

Back in September, I think it was, a guy got onto the skytrain with something that looked a WHOLE lot like a Japanese sword.

I looked, and said "Please tell me that's an umbrella."  He laughed, and confirmed it was an umbrella.  Apparently, Japanese have an interesting sense of humor.

I was considering flying into Bangkok and out of Chiangmai on my next trip in April.  After reading this, I'll reverse the process and spend a day or two in Bangkok at the end of my trip.  I'll have to find a good Dentist in CM to replace a lower tooth that got knocked out last March in an industrial accident (part of board kicked off of miter box saw into face).  Unless anyone can recommend one, I'll check the CM forum on ThaiVisa.
If you're going to have it done in Bangkok, I used Dental Design Clinic some years ago, after someone else had previously recommended them to me.  They did an OUTSTANDING job for me!  I recommended them to a friend of mine a while back, and they did an outstanding job for him, too!

They used to be on Asoke, moved recently, I think they're on Suk Soi 19 now.  Check Facebook, or do a web search.
