    At the request of the roof contractor who was afraid that the posts, because round, could not take the 20 tons of tiles and 10?tons of woof under, I got from Chiang Dao these thicker cement blocks, all they had, and had these built

    There is no doubt in my mind that this is overbuilt, I've built house in wood able to support one metre of ice...

    But I'd rather pay 20 tbh per block and do it like that and have everybody happy!

    wasps and bees sting, Homeopathy

    Quote Originally Posted by Nawty View Post

    My son got stung 3 times on his hand last year by wasps and then last month he got another 2 or 3 on his head.

    I got a few bee stings last year, then I started to give myself bee stings on my elbow for self treatment of tennis elbow.

    I am somewhat allergic to bee stings.

    Very interested to hear about these 2 treatments.

    Those wasps hurt like hell...i got one last year and that was bad enough. I got a scorpion last year also and those thick black ants....they hurt like crazy around here.....my 5yo girl got one last year and me this year.

    Homeopathy is available in all Europe, I think, and in Quebec, I know!
    In India, it's recgnized as an official medecine. That's as far as I know about availability. It's cheap, and very effective. With humans, and with animals.

    The basic principle (law of similimum) is that if you have a series of symptoms, because you're sick, all you have to do is find a product (plant, poison, mineral or other) that would cause the same symptoms if administered to a healthy person, and take it very diluted, and these symptoms will dissappear! And they do.
    So, I got stung 3 days ago, it hurted like hell, I thaught I had a heart attack! A big wasp! I was walking a dog and I was a bit far from the house, so I kept walking and cursing and hurting. It is still swollen and it itches.
    This time today, I got hit closer to the house, and at least 10 times, at the same time. To tell you it hurted, I jumped down, fell, kept running and kept screaming!
    My upper back was already swollen when I took off my Tshirt, I cold showered my back and went to get Apis from my pharmacy : Apis is bee venon! In fact, bee sting will provoque similar symptoms, hurting, swelling etc.. It's been extracted by alcool, then diluted 1 in 100 (1cH, centesimal Hanneman, the founder of Homeopathy), dynamised, then, this 1cH was diluted 1 into 100, and so on 30 times! 3-4 drops under my tongue, in seconds, the hurting stopped, the swelling receded and the areas of the sting are berely visible, where the older place still itches.
    I don't want to write a book about it, but Arnica is a plant, which, if administered in homeopathy, will stop the sequels of a trauma.
    So, find a way to get these 2, Apis in 5-15 or 30 cH, and Arnica 5, 9 or 15 cH, it comes in liquid or in granules (sugar), cannot hurt, no side effect, and very quick results if taken rapidly after the sting or the trauma.
    Lisus here wanted me at the clinic. Now they are surprised to see the very small traces of this.

    Cheers for the info.

    Problem is getting that kind of stuff here in Thailand.

    I presume you brought it in from your home country with you.

    Kebecer!! Eh

    Old Monkey,
    Just read your thread last night, you certainly have a project and a half on you hands here.
    Got to admire you for trying to do it “right” and not f**ck up the planet, only too much of that going on. I guess this is also an education for all to see especially those who are in your employ, as they would not have seen this before.

    I lived in Quebec for over 25yrs after my ex and I meet in Vancouver. She was “Pure Laine”. I worked for Bombardier Aerospace for over 20 of those. So know Montreal and Laurentians pretty well. Just got to love that -25c and nice slippery roads with lots of salt on them! eh.
    But the Skiing was great.
    I am now back in my home country New Zealand and will be visiting My Thai GF in October.

    Enjoy the south of France hope there are no more floods there for you.

    Keep the post going its great.

    Never Say Never!!

    Who told you that you could not have a curved "LOOF"
    They did not know what they where talking about, IT CAN BE DONE!
    I just threw this together quickly on the Cad,

    Comparison of straight and curved ends of roof:


    A closer look at the "Curved" detail:


    Just a bit of back ground, I am a fully qualified Shipwright and Boat builder, and have spent most of my time on the west coast of Canada Lofting in the ship yards there. So I have a reasonable idea of how to make a straight line look curved.
    Pity I only joined a week ago on this forum, You could have had your curved look on your roof.
    lots of good stuff here.

    To the best people, I wish them to see France, the most beautiful country in the world, so varried, with an incredible hospitality, a culture, history everywhere, pre-history, and sights that never leave your memory. I've already spent 67 months there, and I will never have seen all, I intend to keep looking...
    Magdalena, a 15 000 year old village!

    Roquamadour, an inhabited cliff.

    A field of coquelicot, it's a weed!

    The hospitality of my friends, I cannot describe, well, imagine arriving with 5 women for one to three days! The food, the cuisine, I think we spent 8 hours a day eating, 8, sleeping, and 8 looking.

    Also visited Amsterdam, it was sunny and warm. The tallest girls in the world, the only country where you can see a six-foot tall woman wearing high heel shoes, interminable legs...
    425 people per square km!
    Tolerant, intelligent.
    3-story bicycle parking lot

    No motor 15 passenger vehicle

    And a very intelligent approach to drugs, much more than the war other countries will never win.

    Sorry if I went out of the subject, thought if could be interesting.
    Talk to you guys in December.

    I don't have picture for now, I'm back in Quebec, but my brother-in-law tells me that the tiles are going up on the roof and that it look "japanese" with a laugh. I suppose-hope that it upturns at the 8 corners, so that the whole roof looks the way I wanted.

    Great thread and would be interested in seeing the progress once you return. As for bee and wasp stings, I am a pharmacist by trade and have never heard of your antidotes, but it makes sense. The bigger danger is allergic reactions that can kill and I would recommend bringing an EpiPen or similar back with you. They are nothing more than a self-injection of epinephrine that will prevent anaphylactic shock that will kill both children and adults alike. I have two at my place in Udon Thani and hopefully never have to use them. Look forward to more pics of your great build!!!

    The expiration date will appear on the syringe or vial so when you purchase,make sure it has a long shelf life. For injectables, they can be good for as many as 3-4 years.

    Hi you guys, I'm back!
    So happy, after having been stuck on the road to the airport by 4 inches (10 cm) of snow. Parisians cannot cope with snow! Many hundred trucks stopped by the highway gendarmes and lined up for kilometres, traffic jammed for 7 hours, no hotel room available, finally slept in a gymnasium, on a mattress Thai hard...
    Happy to be back!

    This rosewood is being nailed actually, not yet varnished. This is the most beautiful wood I've ever seen!
    The middle room, I call it the orchids room, goes up one more 3 m height, and will have 4 windows on top.
