  1. The site will be used for a new monument to the late King. Pattaya to erect monument honouring King Bhumibol Adulyadej, The Legendary Royal Sailor Pattaya City has unveiled plans to commemorate the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej, also known as King Rama IX, through the construction of a monument at the site of the old royal sailing club on Pattaya beach. Deputy Mayor Kritsana Boonsawat presided over a meeting highlighting the city’s dedication to preserving its cultural heritage. The inspiration behind this initiative stems from a historic event where Their Majesties King Bhumibol Adulyadej and Queen Sirikit, accompanied by the Royal Family, sailed in Pattaya Bay decades ago. This event holds immense historical and cultural significance. On April 19, 1966, at 4:28 AM, His Majesty the King personally sailed a 13-foot OK-class sailboat named “Vega” across the Gulf of Thailand, from the Klai Kungwon Royal Palace in Hua Hin, Prachuap Khiri Khan, to Toey Ngam Beach, Sattahip, Chonburi, arriving at 9:28 PM after a 17-hour journey covering 111 kilometres. His remarkable feat conquered challenging weather conditions and numerous obstacles. ...
  2. Almost all my CD's I purchased via subscriptions to Columbia House's mail order club. I built up quite a collection of CD's taking advantage of the their signup bonus promos and then cancel the subscription. Rinse and repeat. I still listen to the music that was on those CD's as a long time ago I converted them to MP3 files.
  3. This touches on another subject, how aging affects our mind and motor skills and at what point do we become a danger to ourselves and others if we continue drive and/or ride. We're not in a position to judge this particular gentleman, but we probably know of others who are family or friend that we would question their decision to continue to operate any type of vehicle on a public road, especially the busy and chaotic ones in Thailand.
  4. Video is in the article. @lazarus post contains just a screen grab. https://www.khaosodenglish.com/news/2024/04/22/swiss-national-in-coma-after-brutal-hit-in-pattaya/
  5. Cool video, but I was wondering how they held the balls in place before starting them rolling. The answer was in the video's description.
  6. I only cool the master bedroom at night and a smaller bedroom that I use as a home office during most of the day.
  7. Read on another forum a discussion about one of the side benefits of spirulina is hair growth. Since it's cheap enough decided to buy a two month's supply. I had my lady take a picture of my bald spot this morning. In a month or two I'll have her take another and report back the results. https://www.lazada.co.th/products/i3894878931-s14947733212.html
  8. Paid my bill a few days ago. Up from the usual 2400B to 2700B. Not too bad, but I expect the next bill to be even higher.
  9. I agree. Both didn't exercise caution going through the intersection and the guy outside the protection of the metal cage paid the heaviest price.
  10. Interesting to see the video rather than the stills that were previously published. Hate to blame the victim, but the guy on the e-bike didn't even turn his head to look for crossing traffic. You can't ride like that and expect to survive for long. Wonder how much his age and possible decline in mental acuity factored into this accident. Discussion on the accident in this topic too.
  11. A good name for all reality TV shows... pointless.
  12. Same here. It did seem though that quite a few of them had larger openings, thus reducing the water pressure coming out.
  13. In my many years of windsurfing I never experienced sailing with dolphins. I did on a couple of occasions spot sharks just below the surface. What was incredible was night windsurfing when the sea bioluminescence was active. Couldn't find any windsurfing images, but plenty of surfing pics and video out there of amazing nature putting on a light show.
