    Intro

    Teak Door

    Hi. Just like to introduce myself.

    I discovered this forum as I was searching for some info about construction in Thailand and I've been having a look at it over the past few weeks to see what it's like. It seems reasonable most of the time with a few nutters around on occasions.

    I'm Aussie (sorry, Dirty Dog, you seem to have something against Aussies) but I'm also a pom, having "matured" there until I saw the light and went surfing.

    Now living and working in Ubon - nice place but a long way from the beach!

    Welcome to the teak door.
    Don't worry about the dog, he also dislikes the Welsh and the Americans.

    Yes there are some nutters, but there are so damn nice people trying to build somewhat of a community.

    Welcome to TD, Bob - don't worry about being an Ausiie - we normally have a go at everybody from time to time...... All part of the fun.

    Thanks for the welcomes

    TeakDoorers,

    10 replies from 9 members out of a total of 521 members - not a bad response. That's probably all there's going to be so thanks for the welcomes.

    ChaingMai noon - thanks
    Thetyim -thanks
    buadhai - thanks. I'm not building a home as I don't think I could deal with Thai builders after what I've seen of them and the work they do. I've just bought a place and I've got a bit of fencing and some kitchen benches to do
    Marmite the Dog - thanks. I consider myself more an Aussie than a pom, especially when the discussions are about sport.
    MeMock - thanks. Teaching or something? - something. Do some writing for the university.
    Ice Maiden - thanks
    aging one - thanks
    Whiteshiva - thanks. I'm not worried about being an Aussie, but I would be worried about being an Ausiie
    Goddess of Whatever - thanks for your worm welcome

    Did I miss another Aussie lad joining the forum without a welcome?

    Well, shame on me!!

    A couple of rules sunshine, so you don't get off on the wrong foot...

    1) Aussies are restricted to posting only where they have, preferrably expertese, but we will accept any prior knowledge.
    This will limit you to only posting about beer and sport. I'm sure you're quite happy about that.
    2) When referring to the 'weaker' sex please refrain from using the more recent descriptive phrases such as 'resident of the vegemite valley, 'poo tube plumber' etc in place of the typical ozzy 'flamin'poof'.
    3) Remember who the enemy is! That's right it's kiwis, seppos, chermans and the welsh.
    all otter posters are your friends!!

    Enjoy your time on TD!

    OK, ok - I mispelled the word. Could have been worse, though - I could have left the "u" out instead......

    Shame on you!

    That's the only time I feel English. Well, that and when I hear a Seppo murdering MY language.
