In a very short time the 100,000 vote barrier will be broken. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the TF members I have met along the way.
It has been a wonderful experience getting to meet so many of you. It's nice to know there are real people behind all these profiles.

Leroy lives on the Farm.
His mother tells him no breakfast until he does his chores.
Well, he's a little ticked off so when he feeds the chickens, he kicks a chicken. When he feeds the cows, he kicks a cow, and when he feeds the pigs, he kicks a pig.
He goes back in for breakfast and his mother gives him a bowl of dry cereal.
"'How come I don't get any eggs and bacon, and why don't I have any milk in my cereal?" he asks.
"'Well," his mother says, "I saw you kick a chicken, so you don'

Phew!!! It's always nice to get away from home for awhile . . . it's nice to get back home too!! I'm finally getting myself re-organized here. . . lolJust over a month ago Stu_thailand asked me what my plans were for New Years. I hadn't really thought about it . . . but I blurted out "Well I've never been to Chiang Mai." He said he had never been either so we decided we would start making arrangement then to prepare for the trip. At first a large group had wanted to go with us and we were d

You would think after Phong's birthday party on Koh Samed the end of last month that we would slow down abit and fall back into our daily routines . . . but nooo . . . it appears our daily routine is not having a daily routine . . . Tuesday, I got a message from Khun Ed. He had just made the border run to renew his visa . . . and yes it's true . . . he only got 14 more days, because they always include the day you renew. Not so good for Ed since he is heading to Afganistan to work the first we
Last night Phong and I joined up with some neighbors and ventured to the local Obithor(Town Hall) near our home to celebrate the King's Birthday. There were hundreds of people there along with food and other types of vendors. We were entertained by some of the local school children, who danced and sang for us. At one point, fireworks were shot off from two directions, exploding directly over my head . . . it was quite a sight!! Meanwhile, candles were passed around to everyone as we honored
Last night some TF members met up at Suan Lum Beer Garden to celebrate Arnst's(i4God) 97th birthday. It was a fun evening indeed with lots of food, drink and conversation. After closing the beer garden we made our way to the Pickeled Liver British Pub on Soi 11 . . . where we managed to close that place also . . . lol Here are some photos . . .

Yes it's true!! Tom(Thomaswd) and Pam(Bambam101) tied the knot yesterday!! A reception was held last night at the Miracle Grand Convention Hotel. Our very own Chez(Cherie Atwood) did an excellent job as Master of Ceremonies. Guests included family and friends from Canada and Afghanistan as well as ThailandFriend members. The food was great!! Lots of fun and laughter!! And great conversion!! A good time was had by all!! Here's a small video I made of the proceedings. I apologize for the
A cable guy showed up at my house and told my wife he had to make some adjustments because some of the channels had changed. Of course, I was very curious because I get excellent reception here. Anyway, he preceded to "Fine Tune" my channels, but actually wasn't changing anything until he got to ASTV1, which some of you may know as the PAD channel. He "Fine Tuned" it to another channel that I already have . . . . . . . very interesting . . . I changed it back after he left . . . . Have any
Music in the 60's and 70's wasn't just about the British Invasion, Hard rock, Psychodelic,Progressive Rock and Heavy Metal. There was another sound that filled the airwaves . . . It was called "THE MOTOWN SOUND". Amazing artists like: Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, The Supremes, The Jackson Five, Smokey Robinson and The Miracles and more made incredible music and still has meaning for us today. Here's a song from "The Temptations" that should bring back memories for some of you . . .
One of my favorite bands from "The British Invasion" years was "The Hollies". Their unique vocals, with Allan Clarke and Graham Nash, were easily recognizable. Whenever I get into the easy listening mood, I always play this song . . . just something very special about it . . . He Ain't Heavy . . . He's My Brother . . .
I hope you're having a great weekend!! (Don't forget to sing along.)
This is second hand info . . . so I'm not sure how true this is . . . but I hear the police are still at it. Gassing protesters and killing 2 people. I hear they have even attacked the Queens Army personel working at a hospital. Doctors are saying that it's not normal tear gas . . . that it's stronger and burns more . . . Has anyone heard anything about this??
Hey!!! It's Sunday!!! I'm always posting songs in my journals . . . so I thought it would be nice to start the new week off with one of my favorite Thai songs from one of my favorite Thai artisits . . . Here's . . .

And a translation . . .

Since I was born I've never met anyone like you
Lup fun lamer pahb ter koy lohn took keun
I always dream about you in my sleep
You are driving along a narrow two lane road with a NO PASSING sign posted, and you come upon a bicycle rider.
A - Follow this slow-moving bicycle rider for the next 2 miles, or.......
B - Do you break the law and pass?
The correct answer is:
A: Why take unnecessary risks and get a ticket?
Enjoy your weekend!!
Here's a fun video clip I found from the TV show "Laugh-In" (I believe) Featuring Lily Tomlin as the telephone lady and Three Dog Night. This amazing band had 3 lead singers and produced 21 straight Top 40 hits from 1969-1974 . . .
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!
