    Secondly, how these figures were collected, there or there, and under what criteria? Who is considered as a nurse? There are so many health personnels, how are they classified in that country?

    Having quite a long time experience in different levels of Thai offices and the Thai life anyway, many times being surprised how things are classified, reported, managed. And that none of the higher position people is concerned about the correctness of the outcome - they have much more "important" matters to worry about than a summary of figures collected around the country.
    The UK health service is the third largest employer in the world. Who knows, some of them could be medical professionals, like nurses maybe.

    Figure it out. Your contrarian discombobulated posting has become a bit much for all.

    This seems quite common amongst the anti-vaxers on here.

    I wouldn't be surprised if grumpy john was amongst the bald hordes at Bang Sue last weekend too.

    Placed a grocery order yesterday with Tops. All delivery slots were booked, earliest available was late this afternoon (normally can get delivery in a couple of hours). We just got a call that a lot of the stuff was not in stock, coke (for the boy), the dry cat food we ordered. Not sure on the full list as the missus got bored and stopped listening. This was just a small, we need these things order, but wondering now whether I should try and do some stocking. Last time we had to do that was a year ago....

    first attempt I was registered for AZ by my employer, hospital refused my application.
    Second attempt was to register for AZ with the Amata roll out, I dont qualify as Iam not BOI single window visa or what ever the other is.

    How does myself making two attempts to be vacinated qualify me as an anti-vaxxer ?

    Quite a lot of the foreign stuff was missing from Villa yesterday. Haven't been able to get a shepherds pie for weeks.

    It's amazing, isn't it.

    Fry some minced lamb and onions. Mash some potato. Put the potato on top of the minced lamb and onions.

    Brown in an oven or under a grill.

    The End.

    Minced lamb, is that a common thing here... Don't think I have seen it.

    I make a cottage pie fairly often, I sprinkle some shredded cheese on top in the oven.... Lush.

    No seasoning?

    Sounds a bit bland.

    I went into the old part of Korat city today and at one point was confronted by this procession of 5 or 6 vehicles coming in the opposite direction, headed by a police car with red lights flashing. I pulled over to watch, out of curiosity.



    A pick-up was spraying the streets from a rig of blue pvc piping.



    With a second behind doing the same, and a fire truck bringing up the rear..



    At first I assumed it was for mosquitos as we're in dengue season... but it looks like it was for Covid 19? At least the '19' is the only part I can understand.



    Does spraying empty streets really make a difference? I have no idea but I'd rather see some vaccinations.

    They gave the car a good soaking so I should be OK.
