When I looked at the forecasts for the midweek games 2 things stood out. Roger forecast the first 5 games all as Aways, while Coolkorat forecast half the games to be draws and crazily had Sheffield Utd winning at Old Trafford! After 9 games played the first 4 were all aways and 3 of the next 5 were draws, Sheffield Utd beat Man Utd and Coolkorat and Roger are top scorers with 7 and 5 respectively.

I'm guessing you have 'Mr DIY' in Korat - in humble Chantaburi we have 3 at least. The local branch opened only recently and my first impression was that it was full of junk - but not just junk it seems . . . some items of amazing value   :)

Replacement saddle on bicycle - very good quality - a low gel version B149, medium gel B159, lotsa gel B189 - replacing something inferior that cost B700

A 4 function calculator - B16 - excellent for casual use.

A 'from the wall' low shower tap - a range of these from B29 but I paid B150 for a stainless steel version, very good quality - (Home Pro similar B 400+)

D/S tape - 5 metres B19 v Homepro B45 for 1 metre.

Good quality pair of wiper blades with carriers for a Toyota Vigo - B129

It's amazing IMO and Homepro and the local hardware shops, must be feeling the pinch. I just don't know how Mr DIY makes money -  a massive investment in very large shops and tons of stock   ;)

General Discussion / Re: Covid-19 - 54 Days: China and the pandemic
« Last post by Coolkorat on January 27, 2021, 08:22:15 PM »
Watched an interesting documentary on the BBC yesterday about China and the handling of the outbreak, see BBC.

China has much to answer about the handling of Covid and letting the world know (and the WHO does not come out well in terms of its stance with China). Sadly I don't think those answers will ever come.

Great photos CK - my favourite is the bay by moonlight  :)

Thanks Roger, that's very kind!

I am a member of a group called 'Two Photographers' created by two professional photographers whose work and income has been terminated by Covid. They run weekly discussion sessions over Zoom, and 'In Depth' sessions where they talk/ train about specific subjects. The Zoom sessions are free, the In Depth are paid (but only 20 euros). I am doing one tomorrow on food photography, something I really want to get better at.
