    The best laid plans and all that... I'll just wait and see the next plan to save this one mango.

    Perhaps if you strapped a couple of swimming wing on it until it learned to swim on it's own.

    Sadly a result of her international school education... I pick her up for using American words and spelling but can do nothing about the accent.

    That's great you say that... I can no longer hear it.

    So there is hope!

    Large chap in a small boat, there was only one likely result.

    Large chap on a slippery bank, we wait with bated breath.

    Your daughter clearly has a future as a film director.

    It's the international school accent. Even Brit schools seem to churn them out with it.

    With my interest in fish we visited the Nong Khai Aquarium this morning.

    There were a few traditional ideas for me to catch my snakehead.



    On the walls they had these fantastic 'Freshwater Fishes of Thailand' posters issued by the Department of Fisheries.





    Here's the info at the bottom.





    The shop at the aquarium didn't stock the posters and there was no-one manning the shop anyway to ask. I'd love to get hold of these posters... done online searches with no success. Maybe it requires a search in Thai?

    Does anyone please have any ideas how I could locate these posters to buy?

    It doesn't Lom, as usual the joke escapes you.

    There is a reason there is no Kraut or Scandi comedy of any note and you prove it consitently btw you'd make a great mod.

    It actually says at the bottom of one of the posters that they are not to be sold.

    They are a decent sized file too (4.5MB + 4.66MB) so will probably still look good if you print them or get them printed into large posters.

    Nev, that is just fantastic... thanks very much and I'll see what I can do about sending a 'Green'.

    I'll check the resolution... certainly OK for A3 format but I'll send them to a draughtsman mate who's offshore just now and he can play at plotting them out at A2 or even A1 if resolution permits.

    My plan is to cross reference with the Latin names to find the English name.

    There's three lines of text beneath each fish... the Thai name, the Latin name (with discoverer) and then more Thai text with a number. Any idea what the third line is about?

    Pretty decent, IMO: 2338 x 3307.
