    Had another group of middle aged plus ladies come down late afternoon yesterday from the neighbours new house all day party. Not sure we will have the same if it is mandatory to have karaoke all day. Mercifully they stopped around 10:00pm although since they are about a hundred meters away the noise level wasn't too bad.

    ^How did you mean it? Spray on them or the garden around?

    The problem is whatever applied (powder) on them, they go morning evening with me on walk along the river and enjoy the swimming:

    Spray them before and after going out, but also around where they sleep and put some vinegar in water. Funny that you don't know this because it actually works. I would never give useless stupid chemical to my dogs.

    Thanks, will try it. However, they action radius is quite large, would need to order a vinegar tank.

    When you say "put some vinegar in water", do you mean a water they drink?

    That would also be not so easy. They are never keen on a water from a served bowl but organize themselves from swimming pool or from fish pond when haven't drunk enough from the river.

    Love your koi pond , what kind of filtering system are you using?
    Have not stocked ours yet, still working in the US and traveling back and forth, and no time to maintain it , but retiring before the end of the year and researching all options. Planning to build a waterfall on the side where you see the electric outlet and thinking of hiding the filter behind the waterfall.

    Not sure whether our friend BIP would be happy that we discuss here things off his topic.

    Perhaps you can look in the following threads where I gave some my knowledge about fish pond:

    http://teakdoor.com/construction-in-...ml#post2866185 (A swimming pool in Thailand so easy)
    http://teakdoor.com/construction-in-...ml#post2946836 (Pool construction costs (Laos))

    It's not perfect since few times modified a simple project made by local people, however, it works and the kois (some 25 pcs) have been surviving without casualties over many years...

    Finally got around to putting up the metal sheets we got in IKEA to display the travel magnets we've collected over the years. Still a bit of room but we've stopped travelling now. But missing some magnets from places we've visited so might fill in the blanks via online purchases. Perhaps cheating, but who will know?

    Thought I'd post again and get the thread kicked over the 30,000 views mark. (Yes I know, pathetic, but it's kind of quiet up here in the north.)

    Got the guy who made and installed the teak shelves in the house during the build to make and install three more. I wanted a shelf at the top of the dining room/kitchen cutout, another shelf on the wall just inside the front door and a small shelf with a clothes hanging bar in bedroom 2. He quoted a very reasonable 3,700 baht for supply and install and did a great job.





    This is the new shelf in the dining room/kitchen cutout. I purchased and installed the wine glass holders and discovered to my bewilderment we owned eight white wine glasses, six red wine and four sparkling. These were purchased when we were living in the US in 2017 and are good quality but I'm at a loss to understand the uneven numbers, at least for the white and red. While we don't drink wine having these available is part of the plan for our homestay business.

    The shelf inside of the front door is also driven by our homestay plans. We intend to cater for small touring motor cycle groups (and others in cars) and wanted somewhere helmets and jackets could be left immediately on entering the house. We purchased the hooks via Lazada and I installed those.

    And finally for today I think I'm safe in saying that I own the only US purchased electric BBQ in northern Thailand that has been converted to use charcoal. I stripped out the electrical components and after searching a bit found a steel tray in Makro. Lined it with two layers of foil, works a treat. The sausages tasted twice as good cooked this way compared to the boil and brown method I had been using. The grilled home grown purple zucchinis went down well as well. This is another homestay inspired job, guests to be able to use it for free.

    Appreciate the praise Norton, but not yet ready to 'lock it in'. Got a few more things to do and hoping we get more right than wrong. Regards, -BiP

    You are utterly correct aging one. Perhaps my brain was thinking of you during the original post. Turns out purple eggplants is one of a small number of veges not to the liking of the local vege eating pests up here. Have told the wife to plant more. Mind you, can only really tolerate them if grilled to get a bit of flavour. Regards, -BiP
