Hi Tees, I bingewatched all episodes of "Sunderland till I die". The series is readily available using Kodi (addons "supremacy" and "exodus" have the series). A great series that I really enjoyed.

There has been loads of independent research and all show it is getting warmer. The link between increased pollution and rising temperatures is solid. You will be claiming vaccinations don't work next.

Well I guess I am on different planet, of course it seems there is a solid link between pollution and global warming, its also a natural cycle that the earth is going through as well. From what I have seen there is data that suggests the past few hundred years have been the coolest apart from the ice ages and the Earth is now on the up-swing in temperature rise, who nows its a bit like the ever faithful weather man telling you the weather for the next week, LOL.
A lot of the hype is skewed by the "Scientist' that were paid, indirectly or directly by the likes of Gore & Soros.
So I guess its down to who you believe and what you see as the truth.
Everyone is allowed to form their own opinion based on the information they have at that point in time.

The blue ones are much stronger than the white ones and the tops on the blue ones are usually a better fit than the white ones, so ants won't get inside the tank.

I have had white ones split, not only losing my water but also the 90 baht cost (deposit) of the tank.

The blue tanks are slightly more expensive to buy than the white ones: THB 100 v 90 if I recall correctly.

That's a good point , Ive lost count of the number of times that Ive accidentally knocked a white water bottle and the bugger cracked  :(

I just spotted this comment about Thai blue water bottles ...

[ Also the plastic used to produce the bottles might not be food grade, many ‘Blue’ colored water containers (for quick identification) are specifically manufactured ‘food safe.]

Makes you wonder .

No fixtures until Friday 22 due to FA cup. Please forecast in 2 rounds Friday to Sunday (8) and Tuesday to Wednesday (10). Its not a big job for me other putting the forecasts into the spreadsheet. It then tallies up the scores and updates the table.

Not really sure Ken but they look like a Tutuk with a small pickup bed. I think the only vehicles allowed on the road with a license plate are farm vehicles. Maybe they are for farm use???

The farm vehicle idea could have some thing to do with it , when I lived in Pattaya I saw a few of these ...

 

that were being driven by foreigners and Thais , again no road tax or number plate and not really classed as a farm vehicle

This web site below

As far as I can tell the web site page makes no mention of road tax or insurance , so how are they allowed to be on public roads, its still a mystery  ;D

And again this below , no road tax or number plate  ???

I seem to remember years ago having a book to put your own stamps in bought at the post office. forbes.com.

Evolution of a safety net

The UK’s state pension scheme was first established by Act of Parliament in 1908. At that time, it was funded from general taxation. Few people qualified for it: the retirement age was set at 70 for both men and women, which meant that most people died without claiming. Of those who did survive to claim, the majority were women. Only the very poor qualified for it, and they had to be of “good character”. It was a basic safety net for the “deserving” poor, nothing more.

In 1911, a system of National Insurance (NI) was established. This provided sickness and unemployment benefits, basic healthcare, and maternity benefits. Men and women bought entitlement to this insurance cover by buying weekly “stamps” from the Post Office. For this reason, NI payments today are still often called the “stamp”. National Insurance at this time did not cover retirement pensions.

Not sure myself one way or the other if it is a natural occurrence or man made . Would be nice to have true independent research its all so political now.
 If it is a natural occurrence is mankind having an added affect on it?
If that’s so what will be the effects on crops nations ect. and can we limit that affect ?
