I would simply go back to America, as i am totally happy living in my own country.  Only here because the wife spent 10 years in America and now its her turn to live here in Thailand, then back to America in 7 more years.  Can't wait.

I always stay in Midtown When i am in the Big City.  Never really cared for the whole central park thing.  Usually i was there on business and my first order of business was always a dirty water dog.

Discuss Shopping / Re: New TOPS Supermarket???
« on: April 24, 2018, 06:31:12 AM »
I saw a new one in Kosem Posai a few weeks ago.  A large actual Tesco, not an express.  This one came with KFC,  i got excited drove down there to discover the KFC no have chicken yet, and really no farang food at the tesco at all.  Eh but still improvement over nothing but a wet market i guess.

I keep the kids on the lower 2.4 Hrtz as their IPADS and phones don't have the 5hrtz capability.  Now my phone along with the Mrs has this capability so we are on the 5htz network.  Its just less clutter up there, but if your around concrete the signal will degrade as the higher hrtz has problems with walls and such. Does not affect the main PC as i run that with a cable. 

WIFI 2.4 vs 5 is not really something anyone should really be concerned with, if you want the 5 use it, if not the 2.4 hrtz works just fine.  Its just crowded, but if your in a concrete house you might want to stick with the lower hertz anyways.

Holidays & Festivals / Re: SONGKRAN
« on: April 05, 2018, 06:56:05 PM »
we are already up in the village for the songkran holiday.  The village has maybe two days then the rest of the time its for the kids and at the temple.  I don't leave the house the first two days, neither do the kids.  Once the parades are done i take them up to the temple as the kids enjoy the water fights with the other kids.  Pretty tame up here, which is why we come.  I set myself up with internet and such years ago up here, got air con, good kitchen etc.  So i don't mind coming up here for a few weeks a year. 

I don't know how i would do it in Khon Kaen, except just stock up on food and stay home.  To many drunks on the road to even attempt to leave the house except in the early morning maybe.

I dont know much but i believe khon kaen will ve a trade hub for asean.  Yes it will lose its old small town flair but peoole up here are moatly a decent bunch so i hope it maintains that isaan atmosphere.  There is only one way and that is forward all we do do is get one the train and ride it out or gdt off and relocate.  I for one will ride this biatch out and see where it goes.

i go to Maha Sarahkham, and everyone there is so nice and helpful.  Never had a single problem, first time i had paperwork problems, on my my end and not them, i fixed it and now i know what to expect so its not an issue.  All smiles everytime i go.  i actually look forward to my 90 day reports as its that pleasant.  I asked about online reporting they said, no not yet, we like to see your smiling face every 90 days, on top of that they have a great coffee shop on site.

Doctors, Clinics, Hospitals / Re: Script refills

typically 240 at the pharmacy.  My wife found out a pharmacist lives on our same soi so she went down to speak to her and two days later i have a stock of medicine again at the 240 price.  I did get all my blood work done, which i should have had done anyways.  So same medicines and back to using the pharmacy.  The blood work and other tests were 8900 Thai Baht at the Bangkok Hospital in Khon Kaen.

I am just passing along the article.  However, as you raised the question "what are they supposed to do with them rex?"  I will offer up one in return, What will you do when they come for you?

Show them my papers, laugh my ass of and wish them a good day.  Its to easy Rex to stay legal, if you can't take your ass to BKK and fly the fuck out.

1.  All I know is the pictures I saw, all were NOT dark in color!
2.  Those who are professed to be teachers, find out what schools hired them and fine the superintendent for hiring an illegal.
3.  Fine them.
4.  Deport them, and blacklist them for how ever long the law allows.

Show them my Visa and what ever else they ask for as i am legal.  I have no worries about the immigration raiding my house.  The rules here are easy to follow, if you can't follow simply instructions take your ass to BKK and get the fuck out.  Its pretty simple.
