The Bavarian Beer House has recently opened in Jetyod Road, Chiang Rai. It is located where the Bar 184 used to be, just 100 m from the clocktower. My wife and I visited the other evening and were impressed with what we found.

You probably think why on earth did I get a vasectomy at 28 years of age? It is simple really, I was married (unfortunately) and already had 2 kids. My daughter was fine but my son had cerebral palsy.

There was no way on this planet that I was going to father another child. The NHS doctor I saw in England was sympathetic and signed me up for the op. I had no idea of what was coming....

Two new bars have emerged in the last couple of weeks in the Jetyod Road area of Chiang Rai. Or maybe I should say 1 1/2 bars.

Web Hosting Decision

It is that time of the year when I need to reorganise what web hosting I have for my websites and the other stuff I am developing. I need to split them between hosting in Europe and Asia Pacific.

The day is nearly here, at last. This Covid nonsense is going away I hope.

I am getting LINE and Messenger messages from a few bars in Jetyod Road ordering me to go and drink in their bars on 1st July.

The lockdown in Chiang Rai has been going on a few weeks. No bars, no massage, no alcohol. The last time I went to a bar in Jetyod Road was 17th March, This is not how retirement is meant to be. Let us hope the restrictions are lifted soon.

So what have we been doing?
