In your experience living in Thailand.

Death Railway - Unknown Views - Kwai Wwii

09 August 2017 - 10:01

The "unknown" parts of the Thai Burma railroad.  
We have the Japanese to "thank" for this construction.

How many WWII POW's died making this railway?  How many "natives" died making this railway?

I did take the Bridge on the River Kwai tour.  Out of Bangkok.  Did not see any of this on that tour.

Australian Girlfriend - Usa

"An Australian woman claims she was thrown in US immigration detention after arriving in Hawaii for a romantic getaway with her boyfriend — because officials read her diary and decided she had no plans to go home."


For God's sake let the cute ones in !  

USA needs to maximize the gene pool.  

My Brother Story

06 November 2016 - 22:48

Just reading the post about printers and I recalled my Brother brand story.

Year ago.  When people used faxes and used an answering machine.

I found this Brother brand phone, fax, and answering machine - All In One.
Beautiful - for me at that time.  Has a small LCD screen.

So I had it for years and all worked fine.
But then one day - the LCD screen stated Error or some such wording.  I could not figure out how to get this thing to work properly.  Unplugged it. Plugged it in.  Over and over.  Hit every button on front of  the darn thing.  Nothing.

SO . . . I telephone Brother Customer Support.
Get this nice lady on phone.
She ran me through a bunch of attempts to get rid of the error message.  Nothing worked.  So the CS lady states to me that I had to send it back to Brother for repairs.  The cost to repair was US $79.00 plus I had to pay for shipping.
Not worth it to me.

SO . . . . at the very end of a long conversation, I asked Brother Customer Service lady if there was a "Reset" button on the machine.
The Brother CS lady states - Yes there is.  Turn the machine over.  Find the tiny red button.  And press it.
All worked fine after that !

Fecal Microbiota Transplant

"Fecal Microbiota Transplant (FMT) is a procedure in which fecal matter, or stool, is collected from a tested donor, mixed with a saline or other solution, strained, and placed in a patient, by colonoscopy, endoscopy, sigmoidoscopy, or enema."


Well, you asked for it.
This procedure may help some of the posters on this board.  And subject matter thereof.
