NASA has published a computer generated globe of the earth…. The purpose of the globe is to show the viewer the wind patterns from every corner of the earth… Where the patterns start, travel and end… There are nice soft blues and greens on the clean winds that come out of Canada and blow across the Atlantic… the winds out of northern Africa are as brown as the sand they blow offshore across the equator to the Americas…
I let the globe spin a few times. Each time I watched more of what I had missed the time before and then I noticed that no winds start or finish in the land of smiles; that country which is Thailand… Isn’t that amazing… A country that shares very little of its’ climate with the rest of the world let alone its’ neighbors… How odd is that…?
The Chef’s Table is the official site for the Club Brunch on Wednesdays….No business is conducted…
The Monday breakfast venue is either the Celtic Yard (old Nubi’s)) at 10:00am or The Book House Restaurant at 10:30am.
The Good Corner or the T-Bar Restaurant is the place for your breakfast on Friday morning at the usual 10:00am….
Breakfast will be hit and miss on Monday and Wednesday. Traveling about town asking to be drenched and baby powdered does not sit well with most of us. A few of us have already said they would not venture out next week.
I am not new to Thailand. I have visited six times during holiday over the last ten years but I have now moved here to settle without a care in the world. Just like any ordinary retiree. I am curious though, maybe you can help.
I would be content renting a little condo for about 3,000 Baht a month but my girl friend is adamant in her own sweet way that we should build a house next to her mother in the village. Can you suggest a way that I can win my argument and the two of us can be happy with an affordable condo in town?
Your letter of this morning has caused me to stout my bracings. I see a man adrift in freshening winds and a falling barometer. It may be too late for me to advise, but I shall try.
Your girl friend’s ties are to the village earth and not to some whimsical notion of a cheap condo two flights up in the cheap seats of downtown. Your notion of carefree retirement probably conflicts somewhat to the dramatic dalliances of your girl friends imagined Big Face as reflected from a mirror held high for the convenience of her peers to view.
Your conflict weighs heavy on me at the moment and I would like to take a breather from advice and suggest you get back with the editorial staff sometime after your second ninety day border crossing. We might be better able to prescribe a course of action after you have weathered the storm and have found yourself ensconced in a comfortable home back in the village.
All this chit chat may be unnecessary by then
The cynical crew
Nike has a new sports shoe that is held together on the outside by what looks like plastic gill netting… inside are some multi colored materials that must be designed to peep through the gill net after the multi colored shoe strings are pulled tight. Of course you will pay top dollar for these shoes…
I remember when my mom squawked at paying top dollar for a simple pair of black and white Keds High Tops….
How many people half rinse the dinner dishes… have you ever noticed those tiny little soap bubbles floating around the surface of a glass of water you got at their house…that’s because they only rinse halfway. That is a half rinse house…
There is evidence that the Chinese invented flush toilets more than a thousand years ago… the evidence is a porcelain toilet having been uncovered in some rubble up there…Archeologist have determined that the thrown held water in a reservoir and discharged same into a collector bowl when some sort of cord was pulled… not hard to imagine… It is just about like what we use…So what happened after that… Years passed until the Brits could take credit for inventing a new version and a guy named Crapper could sell so many that the toilets were named after him… Wouldn’t’ it have been much nicer to say I’m going to take a Shuin schway in Chinese instead of saying I’m going to take a crap in English.
When the rich give away money in one big lump is that still called the trickledown effect?
I was around six when I wore out my right knee during a day doing boy things. I complained to my mother and within minutes she came into my room with a spoonful of stuff and told me to take it, “It is good for your knee.” she said.
That was the first time I doubted my mother. How does a liquid know to go to my knee and how does it know which one?
I noticed the other day with the help of Wikipedia that Dr. Livingston of explorer fame has several statues here and there and everywhere around the world. In most of his statues he is doing nothing more than exploring which may be the reason why he has so many. I imagine it is far simpler to make a statue of a man standing around pointing than to make a statue of a man on a bucking horse with sword drawn…. The placement of two of his statues is a mite confusing. He has one on each side of the head waters at the Nile as though he discovered the source of the Nile from both sides at the same time… Go figure.
