  1. That is because the sound of washing machines passes for music in those venues.
  2. Looks like Brooklyn Diner is gone. Good luck in whatever you do in the future manfred. Brooklyn Diner Pattaya 18 hrs · Dear Friends and Customers We regret to announce that Brooklyn Diner is no longer Open for business and is now up for Sale. We would like to take this opportunity to Thank all of you that have supported us during our time and we hope that a new Owner is found and will continue what we have created. In the meantime, we wish you all Good Health and Well-being.
  3. I love the heat, although I start to slow down at about 37C and the low 40's we get in summer can be unpleasant especially if I need to do physical work. Needless to say I drink a lot of water in the warmer weather, 5-10 litres a day is not uncommon. The cold does horrible things to me anything below 15C is unpleasant. Humidity tends to knock me about more than it used to. My current job has me outside in all sorts of weather. Spent several hours standing in the wind and rain on successive days last week, which confirmed my opinion, several simple movements were painful. It takes a lot to warm up and get movement back.
  4. Good to see there is a maintenance depot in the plan. They will need somewhere to park the trams while they wait for the parts no-one thought to order or keep in stock.
  5. Looks like Feb 13 will happen in a month or two. Just in time for the end of the wet season.
  6. Not many visitors, that is for citizens and people with an appropriate visa. Mostly people arriving on repatriation flights. The borders are currently closed, although the federal government are pushing to change this. Those escaping the floating petri dishes (cruise ships) also had to go through quarantine before being escorted to planes going to their home countries or states often to go through quarantine again. There was a major outbreak as a result of guests from a cruise liner, Ruby Princess, being allowed ashore in January/February (?) resulted in over 30 deaths and literally hundreds of cases around the world as they were allowed to get on planes. Given the total death toll in Australia is now at 102, that is a significant %.
  7. Currently 2 weeks isolation in a hotel on arrival in Oz, at the government's expense. You are not allowed out of your room, they jailed one bloke for breaking that a couple of weeks ago. If you arrive in the wrong city, it could mean a second 2 weeks if you have to go to a different state, although this is slowly being lifted. In the state I live in (Western Australia), there are regional restrictions on top of closed state borders. Sometimes I have to go through police roadblocks to get to where I am working on a given day.
  8. Keep being the good guy and you'll have a full house soon.
  9. Happy birthday Phil. Hope you had a great day and a serene year.
  10. That is odd. Companies refusing to accept money for a bill. It is not as if we are looking at money laundering here.
  11. Good thing tourism is way down. No-one around to tell their friends how bad things are.
  12. Had a business in a tourist area, we called them ice cream lickers. Wandered around looked at lots, even asked questions but did not spend anything.
  13. WHY MEN ARE NEVER DEPRESSED: Men Are Just Happier People -- What do you expect from such simple creatures? Your last name stays put. The garage is all yours. Wedding plans take care of themselves. Chocolate is just another snack... You can never be pregnant. You can wear a white T-shirt when you swim in the sea. You can wear NO shirt to swim in the sea. Car mechanics tell you the truth. The world is your urinal. You don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt. Same work, more pay. Wrinkles add character. Wedding dress £3000. Morning suit rental £100. People never stare at your chest when you're talking to them New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle your feet. One mood all the time. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat. You know stuff about tanks. A five-day holiday requires only one small suitcase. You can open all your own jars. You get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness. If someone forgets to invite you, he or she can still be your friend. Your underwear is £5.95 for a three-pack. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.. You almost never have strap problems in public. You are unable to see wrinkles in your clothes.. Everything on your face stays its original colour. The same hairstyle lasts for years, even decades. You only have to shave your face and neck. You can play with toys all your life. One wallet and one pair of shoes -- one colour for all seasons. You can wear shorts no matter how your legs look. You can 'do' your nails with a pocket knife. You have freedom of choice concerning growing a moustache. You can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives On December 24 in 25 minutes. ___________________________________ Men Are Just Happier People NICKNAMES If Laura, Kate and Sarah go out for lunch, they will call each other Laura, Kate and Sarah. If Mike, Dave and John go out, they will affectionately refer to each other as Fat Boy, Crazy and Wildman. EATING OUT When the bill arrives, Mike, Dave and John will each throw in £20, even though it's only for £32.50. None of them will have anything smaller and none will actually admit they want change back. When the girls get their bill, out come the pocket calculators. MONEY A man will pay £2 for a £1 item he needs. A woman will pay £1 for a £2 item that she doesn't need but it's on sale. BATHROOMS A man has six items in his bathroom: toothbrush and toothpaste, shaving cream, razor, a bar of soap, and a towel. The average number of items in the typical woman's bathroom is 337. A man would not be able to identify more than 20 of these items. ARGUMENTS A woman has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument. FUTURE A woman worries about the future until she gets a husband. A man never worries about the future until he gets a wife. MARRIAGE A woman marries a man expecting he will change, but he doesn't. A man marries a woman expecting that she won't change, but she does. DRESSING UP A woman will dress up to go shopping, water the plants, empty the trash, answer the phone, read a book, and get the mail. A man will dress up for weddings and funerals. NATURAL Men wake up as good-looking as they went to bed. Women somehow deteriorate during the night. OFFSPRING Ah, children. A woman knows all about her children. She knows about dentist appointments and romances, best friends, favourite foods, secret fears and hopes and dreams. A man is vaguely aware of some short people living in the house. THOUGHT FOR THE DAY A married man should forget his mistakes. There's no use in two people remembering the same thing forever!
