  1. He's obviously got mental issues. How sad that so many commenters here ASSUME that he's just being a jerk. He needs medical attention not chastising.
  2. Sponsor tastes nasty and it's full of chemicals. In its natural state, coconut water contains electrolytes such as potassium, sodium, magnesium, and phosphorus. I cycle long distances every day regardless of the heat. I don't get dehydrated. I drink 3 to 4 liters of plain water per day. I eat a banana or two and some coconut water regularly.
  3. I'm by no means a fan of Biden, but my goodness, that statement (if done by an actual human being) is simply absurd. Biden is at least steadily working for the country. The economy is fine. Corporate greed is keeping prices higher than they should be, but that's not something any president can change. Meanwhile, the other guy is either playing golf, sitting in court, playing golf and cheating while doing it, or sending mean 'truths'. Name a policy that Trump has proposed other than simply saying 'tax cuts' at his rallies. He has no policies other than revenge and self-preservation from the legal system, period!
  4. We have a problem with dust mites and one of our 4 dogs has a terrible time with them on his bedding. Detergent, sadly and as you say, doesn't kill them. We don't have a dryer. So, we have a huge tub and make a bunch of hot water to soak the bedding it. It's a lot of work, but it's effective.
  5. You can't fully block GammaGlobulin as far as I can tell, but if you hover your mouse over his/her avatar and click on 'ignore', you have the option of ignoring his/her comments, messages, and posts. I'm not sure how to do this on a mobile, but I'm sure the option is there.
  6. My wife and I visited Loei last year as part of a multi-destination Isan trip. We love visiting Isan. It's such a refreshing change from Phuket and very affordable. My main concern would be medical facilities. That's a big part of what I like about Phuket. BTW, we visited Phu Wiang, Nong Bua Lam Phu, Loei, and Chiang Khan on this particular vacation. It was a wonderful trip! We're off to Udon Thani and Nong Khai later this month. My favorite hotel in Thailand is the Amman Unique Hotel in Udon Thani. It's like a 5-star-ish hotel at 3-star prices. The location is wonderful and the restaurant is really good too.
  7. I added him/her to my 'ignore' list as anyone who would say something like that is not likely to ever post anything worth reading. 😉 There is, of course, a smorgasbord of expats here. Yes, some are dreadful and others are delightful. There is a bunch in the middle. It's the way reality works in most destinations I'm guessing.
  8. Friendly, honest, considerate, interested in local culture, financially stable and willing to support local business... stuff like that. None are barflies or here for the sex trade... stuff like that. 😊
  9. I'm sure there are positives and negatives to every place. If I really didn't like here, I'd move. I fully understand why my friends are leaving. They have NOTHING tying them here. Four of them have only lived here for a couple of years.
  10. My friends are leaving, I'm not. I still have plenty of very good friends here. There are a lot of things that I like about Phuket. I also live in a nice part of town, so it's not touristy. I'm semi-retired and in the tourism business. Business is doing great. I'll fully retire in a couple of years. If Phuket keeps heading in the direction it's heading, I'll consider moving off the island. Phang Nga Town seems like a good option and it is still within easy striking distance of Phuket.
  11. I go cycling all over the country. The last few years have focused on Isan. I loved Lamphun for cycling. It's such a lovely area. The people were very friendly and, of course, there was plenty of great food. I just don't think I could live in such a quiet place. I like the idea of if, but I'm not sure if I could actually do it.
  12. I wonder how many people will buy the new houses/villas being built all over the island. Chern Talay is one of the worst traffic areas on the island. And, it's bad at any time of the day. Surely, a potential buyer would visit first. If they do, they WILL get stuck in traffic. I believe a lot of these new places won't be sold.
