the croc hunt Phuket resumes after yesterday’s capture attempts fail
I guess nobody told them, can't a croc have a few days holiday, snap below :)

Phuket crocodile discovered on Kata Noi Beach

The crocodile was last seen resting on the shoreline of Kata Noi Beach early this morning (July 21). Swimmers have been banned from going into the water while the capture operation continues.

Rawai Mayor Aroon Solos reported yesterday afternoon that the crocodile was heading to Kata Beach after spending two days taunting officials and professional crocodile hunters in the sea off Nai Harn Beach.
Home: Britain / UK banks - Can't Deposit Cash Into Someone Else's Account?
« Last post by thaiga on July 21, 2018, 03:40:37 PM »
I recently got an email from a uk bank informing me they can no longer accept cash paid into my account from anyone else other than the account holder. are they trying to push everyone on line. Customers can still pay into another person’s account by cheque, but not cash. they say: ‘Keeping our members’ money safe is at the very heart of our membership. So to protect our members and their money, we’re no longer accepting cash deposits from anyone who isn’t the account holder.’ Barclays, hsbc Santander, Nationwide and many more are taking the same route.

Money Mail tested the new rules by trying to pay £40 into Santander and Nationwide current accounts. On both occasions they were barred from doing so. is the costs of handling small amounts of money to much for the banks to bear. However, banks including Lloyds, Halifax and TSB say they do not plan to impose similar rules.

Prohibiting customers from making certain cash deposits could be another indication of how the role of the bank is changing in the financial industry. fewer customers means they can close some branches. You can easily transfer money into a friend or relative’s account for free through PayPal.

Add an owner to your account. Giving someone direct access to your bank account is perhaps one of the easiest ways to transfer money between your accounts. BUT >>> who do you trust. :-[

Nan, you seem extremely grumpy this morning.  Have an uptick.  You should have included a warning with that stickboy link.  I opened it on my work computer...breaches a few corporate guidelines.

what a week this has been in the news,what with elon musk insulting words,trump following up behind,thumbling with his uk visit,finding a new friend in russia,even inviting him home for tea.he has certainly unnerved the financial markets,even more if he goes ahead and impose tariffs on all $500 billion of imported goods from China.having a trade war could hurt the U.S. economy.

at home here in the land of smiles for the 13.the media went against the advice and wishes of officials in order to get an exclusive interview with one of the cave boys,choosing the youngest kid involved.

so that takes the heat of the arrogant farangs does it,so i will just refresh you with my view of the ARROGANT FARANGS still lurking around as you have might have noticed on some of the forums,wink wink,cough cough,the name dropping,wether it be immigration or even the big boss,yes i know him well,i ring him if i have a problem  ::) arr! yes the boss is a friend of mine known him for years.are these the guys that claim to have never paid a dowry

i can't understand when 2 farangs have a conversation in public,1 speaks in thai and the other farang has not got a clue what he's saying,why not speak english what both understand.

here is an article from stickboybangkok rings home some truths

5 Things Expats Love To Boast About

Wife / Girlfriend

Her heritage and social standing will be mentioned in the first breath of manure coming out their mouth about her being Thai-Chinese, or is it the other way around?

You will quickly be informed how she is the only child of a super wealthy hi-so family who own half of Thonglor.

In their head this makes them believe they are superior to anyone foolish enough to date an Issan native.

"I told you so! The European Union just slapped a Five Billion Dollar fine on one of our great companies, Google. They truly have taken advantage of the U.S., but not for long!"

The Cabinet on Tuesday gave a green light to collect 7-per-cent value added tax from foreign vendors and e-commerce platforms, Government Spokesman Maj-General Sansern Kaewkamnerd said.

The VAT will be applied to both those who sell goods and services on Internet platforms and those who operate such platforms, such as Google, Amazon and Alibaba.
