    A day off

    Productive? No, not really. But it kept me out of the pub.

    Nice word Slappers. Nothing wrong with that for a day off!

    However, the video needed a little work, so I hope you don't mind, but I made a couple of quintessentially English adjustments to it

    2 minutes to make it..... 3 hours to upload the fucker through a rural hotspot. That was a labour of love having been rejected by youotube, dailymotion etc.

    What kind of lens do you use on your camera?
    It makes your hands look like pig foots.

    Well done Slaps.

    I've decided to walk to the pub every day now which is about 4 kms.

    2 -3 hours watching the Rugby channel with a few beers and then my missus picks me up and home for dinner and bed about 9.00 pm.

    Not a healthy life style for most but a big change for me considering the furthest I have walked for years in one line is about 50 metres.

    I would love to have a push bike here but too dangerous on the roads.

    I'm not sure that it's anything to do with the lens. My hands genuinely look like pig foots.

    Anyway - the Two-minute Wanderer clearly isn't cutting it with the masses.

    It's time to take Behind Bar productions into the actual bar.

    It'll be klong paths for me when I return to Thailand - and a quiet road route or two occasionally. Not that I really fancy sharing the same stretch of tarmac as lau khao'd up tractor drivers.

    You take your life in your hands just walking on the foot paths here in Pattaya mate let alone ride a push bike.

    I have to cross the soi at least a dozen times during my trip to remain on a walkable surface.

    I liked the camera shots from the side of the road, through what looked like a hole in the mud and from on top of a tree! That's dedication, Slap! Who was your 'wing-man'?

    Thank you for acknowledging the prowess of The Slap's masterful direction, Neverna, but actually the 'hole in the mud' was a hollowed out log. And The Slap (can someone please make The Slap sparkle or at least add some sort of mini fireworks display after) happens to consider this particular shot the video's piece de resistance.

    It's a Kingsmill crustless 50/50 loaf. The kids eat it. So do I when the French stick's been gobbled.

    Negative. I only remember theat sweet stodgy stuff in the green or red packaging. It'd suffice, I suppose, when complemented with a slice or five of 7/11's spicy luncheon meat.
