FaceBook: A simple way to post ideas as they dribble from the mind.
American consumers: pay their banks more than 17.5 Billion dollars in overdraft fees every year… Tell me again how much you should hate your banker because you don’t have the discipline to control your spending?
The Udon Expats brunch routine is expanding…. The Chef’s Table is the official site for the Club Brunch on Wednesdays….No business is conducted… Monday it is either the Book House or Nobi’s whichever suits…The Good Corner on Friday at 10:00am.
The women have been coming to these Brunches for a while… they gather their own group at our breakfast venue and then walk off to a restaurant around the corner that serves their kind of food. It is our opinion that the ladies really enjoy getting together for these brunches… Bring your lady along.

We are most appreciative of you taking us into your confidence. Anything we can do to enhance our relationship with you is to our advantage. It is to that end we respond with a great sense of urgency.
We have literally taken to the streets to find the answer to your concerns. At noon we found more than fifty expats around town enhancing their lives with beer Yai. It is these fellows we targeted for our interviews. All the men we interviewed said they enjoy watching women work or just bending over picking things up…. However none could understand your problem nor did any of them want to be a farmer.

A Moment to Reflect
What if Russia starts a war… or draws us into a war… Can that be half bad?
Look at the bright side. The Russians wear uniforms. For the last twenty years the Americans have been fighting people who have worn dresses into battle. (Some prints you could die for.)
Now we are back to fighting guys who drive tanks, airplanes and use electronic communications, wave their own flag around and eat readymade chow. Are we back in the comfort zone or what!
Tennis is a strange sport
Most all sports are either timed or the goal is to score as much as possible. Golf is a sport that rewards doing less instead of more…that is strange in itself but at least the scoring in golf is something you can understand. The guy who does the least wins.
Tennis must have been invented by the bored rich. What other group of people had the time to sit around figuring out really weird ways of scoring games that had to be completed before a match could be won. A game that has no time limit and ties are not allowed… You play until you drop. Boxing isn’t even that tough.
No one really knows from whom the scoring came. What nationality decided the scoring? Nobody wants to take credit…. Tennis uses a scoring system that is so bad it defies new math and can cause Alzheimer in avid players before their fortieth birthday. Two kings have dropped dead from playing. Love that.
Can’t Go without a Coffee Story…. Again…
Coffee is now the world’s number one drink… Coffee has surpassed tea which was the afternoon drink of all who inhabited the Great Island Nation of Britain and the exotic regions of the Far East. This went on for a really long time.
I grew up thinking the Brits had something on us because they never let us forget that they held the secret to brewing perfect tea and to serving their tea in a perfect porcelain cup with perfect matching saucer. The ceremony was perfectly timed for the proper time of day. A cookie was added as needed. This apparently passed for high class the world over…..
I fretted about this for years because my family had no porcelain nor did anyone in my family know how to brew, serve, or to sip tea. We didn’t even have the proper cookie… All we had was a sandwiched cookie with the white filling in the center. One twist of the chocolate (artificial) wafer would open the cookie to the filling that was then licked out. Good enough for us but a bit low class for sure.
It was depressing for me to believe America could not compete simply because we didn’t have the proper cup and saucer. So, of course, we Americans invented the low class Styrofoam cup so we could drink our nasty brew on the run. We have been in the lead with our watered down coffee ever since.
…and this rant comes to an end
Editor’s unabashed sales pitch
T his cartoon is one of many cartoons featured in any one of four cartoon books published by Books Mango (Bangkok Books)… The books are titled: Up To You Volume I, II, III & IV.
(Volume IV is a cheap come on with fifteen cartoons..) All the other high dollar Volumes are endowed with fifty cartoons.
The books are available online for email download from any bookstore in the world… (That is impressive)
Go to your favorite online bookstore (like Amazon) and type in… Al Reynolds: Up To You and see what happens… you may have to type “cartoons” or” Adult cartoons or “Sleazy cartoons…” The books are available only from email downloads…. (Nobody will know you bought one… that’s just between you and me.)
Thanks for the visit…..
