    Nasty weather. Storm has hit, 68 degrees, super windy, and raining. Forecast is for more of the same for at least a week. Tropical paradise, my ass.....

    Hot and humid here. What happened to the cold/cool season this year? Totally absent. Can we blame Brexit? Or should we blame that old faithful Mr Thaksin?

    It's been cool up in Sakon nakhon. Not as cold as last year, more like average with nights dropping to 13 rather than 8.

    Only -27 here so mulling a night out on the piss in UB- that said I have just about got over a cough and subjecting my lungs to the smoke might not be wise.

    Thai guy nearby takes up holding chicken fighting every Friday. He pays 4,000 a month to the police to look the other way as it is illegal. All's been well and good for a month or so. His wife, my house cleaner, cooks and sells food to help overcome the loss of the tea money.

    Anyways, yesterday all hell cuts loose. Men shouting and my dogs barking, so I look out the door. There's men running everywhere through the cassava fields and up the road. It's a police raid. How can that be as 4,000 was being paid in tea money. Apparently, according to my missus, the tea money hadn't been going to the right person and it was he who organised the raid.

    All adults caught have been ordered to report to the cop shop and pay a 2,500 fine, irrespective if they were there just cooking food. Okay what about the guys that did a runner? The cops loaded all their motorcycles onto a truck and shipped them off to the cop shop to await collection and payment of the fine. Bikes with no papers will not be returned, so I'm told.

    Now before the raid the police were getting 4,000 Baht a month. Is that business sense to kill the golden goose?

    A few years ago, after a lengthy discussion, we agreed not to have any chicken in our small garden plot.

    Woke up this morning to the chattering of 15 baby chicks in the former dog kennel... guy with a van visited the village selling laying hens... all neighbours bought as well... will be a ton of unsellable eggs in a few months time in the village...

    some one else will have started a chicken fighting show before next month and they will get their 4k - but this month was a bonus month

    Good gym workout.
    Nice pedicure. (Lulu The Queen)
    Great Thai massage.
    Followed by a greater warm oil massage.
    Followed by a great Khao Soi.


    Life's good.

    I just paid my car registration, plus $174 for a speeding fine. Feeling pretty cranky.

    ^ Ozzie dollars. They aren't worth much these days. AUD 174 is about 4,000 baht.

    I did 72 kmh in a 60 zone. Big fat hairy deal. Those pricks are just revenue-raising.

    Wife went to town today {Ubon} gave her my ATM card, toaster, bread was dead, like my bacon and eggs in the morning on toast.

    Now it's not like she can't understand, spent 4 years full time leaning English in Australia, do I get a pop up toaster, no, end up with some kind of electric cooker.

    Have a range oven, 4 burners and the oven [ whirlpool ] an induction plate for frying, a grill and a micro wave, now an electric oven, but no 500 Baht toaster.

    If I had hair, would pull it out, ask the wife, why no toaster and why buy an electric oven. it was on sale, answer.

    Take the fvcking thing back yourself and get a toaster,do they do refunds in Thailand?


    My moan today is cables and lights, every time i come home day or night the house is lit up like Blackpool illuminations with every light and appliance using enough electric to light a small country.
    I must spend 10 minutes a day unplugging and switching off.
    Sometimes it's easier to just visit the fuse box
    That puts a spanner in the works...
