    The Vietnam War, A Film By Ken Burns

    Watched the first 3 episodes, makes me glad I didn’t have to do any active service anywhere

    Nor me, you would have to be slightly insane to want to join a club dedicated to childish online rants

    Top 5 British derbies for rivalry

    Bairns v Airdrie used to be a bit of a grudge match in the 80’s and 90’s also.

    Qatar adds new flights but is it worth it...!

    No choice for me, company chooses the lowest logical business class fare for me, which is currently Qatar. I’m quite sure my couple of thousand bucks for a flight makes no difference to a country who makes a gazillion bucks a day from gas.

    Why not, I find their service very good, on a par with Emirates ?

    They only fly in and out on alternative days, except Mondays, so try for arrive and depart on a Monday.
  10. I had to get the vaccinations as a requirement for my job location . It was 4 injections over a period of about 6 weeks, need to have a booster again in 5 or 10 years ( can’t remember which). I believe if you get bitten, even after vaccinations, you still need more injections.

    U-Tapao to get a second runway

    Doha airport is also very easy to get through. I normally only have 1.5 hour stopover but still plenty time for a drink and a smoke in the lounge.

    U-Tapao to get a second runway

    They have built a new, larger terminal but only using it for arrivals at the moment, still use the old terminal for departures. Apparently the new terminal will be in full operation by the end of 2018. My next work rotation flights I’m using Qatar air from Utapao, it’s only 10 minutes from my (her) house to Utapao so gotta be better than a 2 hour drive to Swampy. A lot of development going on around Sattahip and Ban Chang at the moment. The beaches down near the Naval dockyard are absolutely rammed every weekend.

    Yes, really enjoyed it, a very down to earth film/documentary.
  14. Cheers Murchie 👍
  15. Looking for a bit of advice gents. My marriage extension/visa will expire soon, I am also going to be 50 in a few months. Anyone had experience of both types of extensions, I believe the retirement is less paperwork hassle than the marriage type , just need a few more shekels in the bank ? I will still be working outside Thailand on rotational work, not sure if this affects the ‘retirement ‘ status ? Cheers.
  16. Marriage visa they visit your house for sure, didn’t think so for retirement visa ?

    Rise of the footsoldier franchise

    I’ve installed a new (to me anyway) app on my Minix, Terrarium, great for movies and series. You need to download it from terrarium website though, not from playstore,as it is not an approved app, or something like that.

    What are you watching on TV

    Working my way through Game of Thrones now. Didn’t think I would like it as normally don’t like fantasy stuff but I’m really enjoying it. Ozarks was quite good. Suits was really good.

    BA 009 LHR-BKK scum class

    We managed 2 bottles of Port between 3 of us at the bar on Emirates, not the best idea on a flight, was rough as fook when I woke up at landing time.

    BA 009 LHR-BKK scum class

    I really can't fault Emirates in any way. Just came back from a trip in the Sand Pit on Emirates biz class, absolutely top notch service. Met an old friend in Dubai lounge so had a few hours at the bar on the A380, great way to travel. Next trip is booked with Emirates again but booked on Qatar for the xmas trip as timing is better and want to compare them, I've heard their biz class is tremendous also.
  21. Just had a quick google, seems Apple patented that function, bizzare really for something so simple.
  22. On your mobile can you not just tap the very top of the screen and it takes you to the top of the page, certainly works on an iPhone, not sure about other makes.
  23. Just for info, not a complaint as I'm sure you've already put a lot of work into this and is a work in progress. Can't log in via Tapatalk, get this error.

    Yup, I think they are just not so much for the technically challenged or those with no patience to learn how to use them.....

    Very true. The opposite is also true.
