When i was in the military they all had to serviced every thirty days or removed.  Milirary public health demanded it.  Something to do with parasites and water born bacteria and other nasties.

This is good info now i need to find a company to do it and supply the water cooler.   

Where to find . . . / Water
« on: December 08, 2017, 10:43:08 AM »
So over here in my baan i have 2 water companies i use one for the 5 gallons company name unknown just some chick in a pick up and then smaller bottles we use company called ok water.  This is all fine and dandy like. 

I need another water guy i want to lease a water dispenser that i can throw 5 gallon containers in to it that also cools the water.  The reason i want it leased is because i want it serviced and cleaned professionally monthly.  Any ideas?

Doctors, Clinics, Hospitals / Script refills
« on: August 24, 2017, 03:00:55 PM »
So I have been using a khon kaen pharmacy to refill my scripts, today I went like normal but now no have and can not order.  So off to ram I go, script in hand.  I check in they tell me to sit.  I see my paper go off to internal medicine, come back to me, then off to pay and then get my scripts, never saw a doctor, 790 baht all in.  Figured since I was there I would ask about all the blood tests I usually get once a year for all rhe ails me.  Deer in the head light look.  So I depart with what I needed, from a doc who never looked at me but charged me anyways.  TIT I guess, I will call over to ram or bkk next week and see what I can set up.

Market Research

In Khon Kaen

Thoughts of a BBQ Restaurant also serving a full breakfast English, Aussi and American/ Canadian. Sausages and bacon would be made by the farm staff an hour outside of khon kaen using the Jimmy brand pigs from Valhalla. Would also have a bar with all the football, air conditioning etc. I have a good friend in Pattaya who i would enlist to help get us started if there is interest in such a thing. Every day would feature a different bbq item, Ribs, Brisket, Pulled pork, and staples every day like USDA beef, tomahawk pork chops, fresh cakes and pies.

Looking for serious insight here. Thanks!

Where NOT to buy! / More of a what and not a where but here goes
« on: October 30, 2016, 06:17:47 PM »
Went to the market today and picked up what i thought were 3 decent chickens for the bbq.  I get them home and find out they are old egg layers.  I tried every trick in the book but it was just nasty.  So nasty i threw it all in the bin and the kids got pizza to eat.  I would never expect any food vendors to sell this type of chicken and not tell you. 

Feeling a bit sad, had to settle for salad and some corn.   

Healthy eating / looking for healthy option
« on: October 27, 2016, 07:24:00 PM »
And by healthy i mean large roll roll , who has the best burger in Khon Kaen?  Let it come with Bacon and Fries.  Does such a place exist here in Khon Kaen?  I am heading out tomorrow evening in search of it, any suggestions would be most appreciated.

« on: October 20, 2016, 10:56:10 AM »
Is there anywhere in Khon Kaen I can have my american passport translated to Thai?  My local amphur is requiring a translation of my passport in order to issue me a yellow book and then the foreigner ID card.  Thanks in advance for any assistance.
