    Welcome to the the door ye rich ole farmer.

    Which part of England is your farm in?

    If you get bored living the life of luxury on your wad in Thailand you could always take up teaching English, i believe it's quite rewarding.

    For a wonderful life in Thailand, do what you enjoy doing. What do you enjoy doing?

    If and ( IF ) you had that much money you would be crazy to go to that 3rd world box of frogs .

    Go and buy a beautiful villa in one of the Spanish Costa areas , some absolute bargains to be had there , coupled with a fantastic climate all year round , clean and sensible living , coupled with so much culture and history .

    If you want to travel to Thailand for a visit now and again Emerates fly from Madrid .
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    Welcome to the Buffalo Board, johnnaylor...How did you happen upon our humble Door of Teak?...

    Your story has moved me...

    Sounds like you are financially set, have compassion, but really are lacking something, looking for more purpose...

    There's definitely a "lot of work to be done" helping others in every place in the world...

    Interesting first post...

    Nailed it there. The OP is exactly like about ten SKYPE messages I have received in the last three weeks. So where do I send my money for the poor kid with oral cancer?

    Wow, what a coincidence! My uncle runs a farm up that way.

    Do you ever pop in to Vandalls?
