Quenching the dragon

Max Allen From: The Australian April 16, 2011 12:00AM NAHM Restaurant in Bangkok's very glam Metropolitan Hotel is a surprise for any visiting food and wine lover.

A BEER PRAYER

Our lager which art in barrels, hollowed be thy drink.  I will be drunk at home as in the tavern. Give us this day our foamy head and forgive us our spillages as we forgive those who spill against us.  Lead us not into incarceration but deliver us from hangovers. For thine is the beer the Bitter and the Larger Forever and ever   Barmen

Electric (sic) Cars.

I was sitting at home last night with my finger stuck in my naval, and it suddenly dawned on me. Electric cars, are a waste of time. A rip off. A knee jerk reaction, and full of toxic waste waiting to be dumped. They dont work, they will never work. Unless by some miracle somone comes up with a battery that can give the car a range of over 1000 km before re charging. The next reason Electric cars wont work. Imagine having to wait 8 hours to refuel your car. Or on a hot day like we can get here

Timing is Everything !!!

The Australian Govt claims it has had a request from the Thailand Tourist Dept, requesting a warning be issued to Australian tourists considering travelling to Thailand later this month.Now this seems like good advise to me. It makes sense as the Thai Govt thinks there may be some trouble when the verdict on a certain well loved member of the "Elite" now living in a neighbouring country is read out at the end of the month. So you can imagine I was some what surprised to see on our National free

The Next Pandemic
