Re: I Went To Thailand For Vacation And All I Got Was This Lousy......

I wonder if you have any idea what caused the original condition? Thanks for the good wishes. I get sores on my leg occasionally due to circulation issues, usually superficial and inconsequential. It was one of those which got infected--I have no idea why or how. The surgeon asked if I'd been in th...

I Went To Thailand For Vacation And All I Got Was This Lousy......

Flesh-eating bacteria. Yes, my recent trip was something less than wonderful. I spent a few days in Pattaya. Jomtien was somewhat quiet, and you don't need me to tell you that Sunee is a shadow of it's former self. I then flew to Phuket for a planned three days--I wasn't feeling great at this point ...

Re: Time to Remember

Almost inevitably, Trump made a number of missteps on his trip to France to commemorate the anniversary. of the war's end, (or as he said "celebrate" it). Foremost was his skipping one ceremony because it was raining. But leaving that aside--what else did anyone expect?--was it just me who...

U.S. Election Results

As of midnight, the Republicans have increased their majority in the Senate, but the Democrats have taken control of the House, giving them the potential to make life miserable for you-know-who. Expect two more years, at least, of partisan warfare, with at least the possibility of some very soul-sat...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I hope I'm not wearing you out with these videos--this one is better than the last two or three. It's a very touching interview with Adul.

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

You may well find this video a waste of time: nothing much happens in it. It's the kids and some other people loading into vans to go somewhere--I don't know where--it's all in Thai. I don't know if it's before or after they went abroad. But I like a few minutes at the beginning--the kids know they'...

Re: 13 Thais Missing during Caving Expedition

I don't speak a word of Thai, but it looks to me like they're getting a little tired of this stuff.
