Wet, Wet, Wet! Heaviest rain for years floods much of the area

hua hin, thailand Last weekend will be remembered by many in the Hua Hin, Cha Am and Petchburi areas as the heavens opened and dropped a massive deluge of rain, overloading the drainage systems and leading to widespread flooding. The Meteorological Department of Thailand recorded 126.2mm of rain in Hua Hin on Saturday,

compared to 29mm the previous day and 18.1mm the following day; Phetchaburi was hit for three days from Friday to Sunday with 66.2, 96.3 and a massive 148.1mm leading to the authorities declaring it a disaster zone. Just to put the figures in context, the average total rainfull in Hua Hin for the whole of October, typically the wettest month, is 211mm, and about the

same for Phetchaburi. Many areas lost electricity as the flood waters rose, with the Soi 102 area particularly badly hit, and the local authority sent help in boats to bring food and other supplies to the worst affected. The good news is that the depression bringing the bad weather appears to have passed, although we can expect more rain and thunderstorms in October and November, which is on average the hua hin, thailand On Saturday 1st October the ESSO Team attended a gathering at the second wettest month.

Bobby’s British Breakfast Foods

served up by Do you wonder why we say certain things, or what they really mean? Each week we will examine a different word or phrase and tell you how UK Sausages, Ham, it came about. Bacon, Pies, Teas etc. This week it is.. Knock on wood The phrase used by people who rap their knuckles on a piece of wood Call 087 155 7737 or 089 985 7473 hoping to stave off bad luck. In the UK the phrase ‘touch wood’ is used - often jokingly by tapping one’s head. The phrases are usually used when one is already experiencing some good fortune and hope that it will continue - e.g. “I’ve been winning on every race - touch wood”. The derivation may be the association that wood and trees have with good spirits in mythology, or with the Christian cross. It used to be considered good luck to tap trees to let the wood spirits within know you were there. Traditions of this sort still persist in Ireland. The British version - touch wood, had an earlier Latin version used when touching wood - absit omen!, meaning ‘far be that omen from us’. This dates from at least the early 17th century, when it is quoted by Heywood. It isn’t clear when touch wood began to be used. It must have been well-known by 1849, when The Boy’s Own Book published the rules of a children’s game that derived from the phrase: “This game is sometimes called ‘Touch-iron’ or ‘Touch-wood’; in these cases the players are safe only while they touch iron or wood, as may be previously agreed. They are liable to be touched only when running from one piece of wood or iron to another.” Knock on wood - the American version, is known from the early 20th century. For example, The Indianapolis Star, September 1908: “He is a promising looking youngster, and once we get on velvet (knock on wood!) the New York fans will get a chance to see him in action. When that time comes (knock on wood again!) it is more than likely that he will not disappoint.” Note: ‘on velvet’ means in a position of advantage, especially regarding betting on sporting events.

Weird News the maldives

Island to be staffed exclusively by blondes An island in the Maldives will be staffed exclusively by blondes if a scheme by Lithuanian firm Olialia gets the green light. Olialia (pronounced ‘Ooh La La’) is hoping that by opening a resort in the exotic Indian Ocean destination staffed entirely by fair-haired women, they can dispel the stereotype that blondes are ‘less intelligent’. To this end, their plans include an education centre, where the secrets of ‘how to always be perfect and look great’ will be passed on to female guests, an airline and yacht service staffed only by blondes, including the pilots – and other standard holiday services. The company already operates dozens of blondethemed businesses in Europe, including computer software and pop music ventures, and plans to open the blonde-staffed resort in the Maldives – a chain of 1,200 islands - by 2015. Olialia’s (blonde) managing director, Giedre Pukiene, says her plans for the blonde-staffed paradise getaway are part of her long-term goal to prove that blonde women are a bunch of clever-clogs. She said: ‘Our girls are very smart and they have degrees. All of them want to do something with their lives. They have lots of business ideas.’ Tourist officials in the Maldives are backing the 6

unusual plan, although it does risk angering some conservative sections of the Muslim country. The country’s employment laws must also be overcome, which stipulate that 50 per cent of staff must be local. Still, if Olialia really does contain so many smart people, it’s bound to find a way to make it work. At least, that’s what thousands of single men will no doubt be hoping. Inner Mongolia, China UFO shuts down airport in China A major airport in Inner Mongolia, China, was shut down by officials who feared jets would crash into a UFO. Witnesses claim they saw a ‘flat and tubular’ object hovering around two miles from Baotou, Inner Mongolia, forcing three flights from Beijing and Shanghai to be diverted to airports nearby. The panic apparently stemmed from the Unidentified Flying Object circling the airport and vanishing without warning. It was first spotted by air traffic controllers in Hohhot, the capital of Inner Mongolia, who noticed the mysterious figure on their radar screens. After attempting to make contact with it and failing - they warned the airport in Baotou. Though Chinese authorities have refused to comment on the incident, an airport spokeswoman said that the diversions were carried out ‘to avoid a collision’. The incident joins seven other sightings in China since the end of June.

The smaller one turned to the bigger one and said, ‘I can’t understand how you can be so much bigger than me. We’re the same age, We were the same size as kids. I just don’t get it.’ ‘Well,’ said the big Croc, ‘what have you been eating?’ ‘Politicians, same as you,’ replied the small Croc. ‘Hmm. Well, where do you catch them?’ ‘Down by the klong near the parking lot by the National Assembly.’ ‘Same here. Hmm.....How do you catch them?’ ‘Well, I crawl up under one of their Mercedes cars and wait for one to unlock the car door. Then I jump out, grab them by the leg, shake the sh*t out of them and eat ‘em!’ ‘Ah!’ says the big Crocodile, ‘I think I see your problem. You’re not getting any real nourishment. See, by the time you finish shaking the sh*t out of a Politician, there’s nothing left but an arsehole and a briefcase.’

Rugby (Thanks again to Karl!) Two 90 year old men, Mike and Joe, have been friends all of their lives.When it’s clear that Joe is dying, Mike visits him every day. One day Mike says, “Joe, we both loved rugby all our lives, and we played rugby on Saturdays together for so many years. Please do me one favour, when you get to Heaven, somehow you must let me know if there’s rugby there.” Joe looks up at Mike from his death bed, “Mike, you’ve been my best friend for many years. If it’s at all possible, I’ll do this favour for you.” Shortly after that, Joe passes on.At midnight a couple of nights later, Mike is awakened from a sound sleep by a blinding flash of white light and a voice calling out to him, “Mike -- Mike.” ”Who is it?” asks Mike sitting up suddenly. “Who is it?” “Mike--it’s me, Joe.” “You’re not Joe. Joe just died.” “I’m telling you, it’s me, Joe,” insists the voice. “Joe! Where are you?” “In heaven,” replies Joe. “I have some really good news and a little bad news.” “Tell me the good news first,” says Mike. “The good news,” Joe says, “is that there IS rugby in heaven. Better yet, all of our old friends who died before us are here, too. Better even than that, we’re all young again. Better still, it’s always spring time and it never rains or snows. And, best of all, we can play rugby all we want, and we never get tired.” “That’s fantastic,” says Mike. “It’s beyond my wildest dreams! So what’s the bad news?” “You’re in the team for this Saturday.”

Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 Doors will swing open for you in a way they haven’t in years, rekindling that creepy door fetish you had in college. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 Oh, man, next week is going to be really something for you. No kidding. Seriously, it’s a shame you have no way of knowing what’s about to happen. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 Fate will give you a lot to do next week, and you had better do exactly as you are told or Fate will start executing hostages. Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 This is a good time to make aggressive moves at work, as when the global economy crashes back to the Stone Age on Tuesday no one will miss a few pens. Gemini May 22 – June 21 Since it hates its job barfing out your future, Gemini is just going to call it a day and go down the pub with the other disgruntled constellations. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 Yes, please, by all means, make some sort of joke about cancer being a disease. Never heard that one before. In any case, no lottery win this week. 10

Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 You will soon open your Twelfth House of Secrets to your coworkers, which unfortunately means you will need to seek a Second House of Employment.

Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 Romance will finally come to you, get annoyed when you won’t shut up about yourself, and be completely turned off when you ask, “Where’s the party at?”

Your Problems SOLVED

DEAR MARY For a very long time I have had a fantasy about rescuing a damsel in distress, with the very specific proviso that a small boat is involved and that we end up making love in said boat while floating off into the sunset. It is probably inspired by the James Bond movie where Sean Connery does something similar. Anyway, since I moved to Hua Hin I have felt that the chances of me fulfilling this fantasy have improved dramatically, as now I live near the sea whereas before I lived in Dudley. I recently bought a small boat to improve those chances and last weekend my chance came! However it really didn’t turn out as I imagined...After the torrential rain here, the streets around me were like rivers, so I whipped out my inflatable (dinghy that is) and set out looking for my damsel in distress, and before long I had found a beautiful girl in some trouble as the waters were still rising. I plucked her out of the water, happy to see that she had only the flimsiest of (now wet look) nighties on, and she looked deep into my eyes, said ‘I

love you’ and then hugged me. I was all ready for the final act of my fantasy when some dickhead on a jet ski comes careering into the dinghy, which promptly sprang a leak and started to sink. While I tried to desperately salvage the boat the guy on the jetski grabs the girl and speeds off with her. It is quite clear to me now that my fate is to pursue this man, my nemesis, hunt him down and get my girl back; my question for you is should I invest in a DIY torture set or just buy a gun and finish him off quick? Edward, Khao Takiab Mary says Dear Edward, That is quite possibly the best letter I have ever received, and my advice to you is to learn from a master how to exact your revenge - get the Hannibal Lector movies and develop a taste for liver, brains and a nice Chianti. And I think you’re going to need a bigger boat...

Liverpool to be renamed Merseyside Red Sox

New owner fulfills boyhood passion for whinging thieves

liverpool, england Liverpool football club will shortly be renamed the Merseyside Red Sox following the takeover by New England Sports Ventures. The move comes after the club finally found an organisation willing to pay over £200 million for a team currently sat in the Premier League’s relegation zone.

Fernando Torres in the proposed new ‘uniform’ Fans have reacted positively to the news, telling anyone who will listen, “We’re absolutely delighted, obviously. We’re swapping one set

of US owners we knew nothing about, for another set of US owners we know absolutely nothing about. I couldn’t be happier.” “It’s like a fairytale really. A fairytale in which we will probably spent the next few years bitching and moaning because we still haven’t won the league yet.” “And let’s be honest, anyone who’s ever worked in a pub up here already has a strong affinity to baseball bats.” The name change is expected to take place before Christmas in order to take advantage of the lucrative ’screaming child’ market, in which Liverpudlian youngsters will demand huge foam hands and large peaked caps, despite the annual hours of sunshine in the North West being just ‘four’. New owner John W Henry said it was a day he had dreamed of since he was a boy standing at the docks in Boston listening to Scousers getting off the boat and moaning about how they hadn’t found anything worth thieving yet. He added: “Boston was a gateway for generations of immigrants. The Irish, the Scots, and even the odd Welshman, but it was always the

Liverpudlians who fascinated me the most, with their disgusting accents, their mind-numbingly pathetic sense of humour and

Liverpudlians would arrive in Boston with nothing but a small bag of stuff they’d nicked their transparent desire to steal everything my family owned. I thought to myself, ‘one day I want to spend a huge amount of time with these people’. I want to place myself at the heart of their community and spend hours and hours listening to their childish demands in a room where everything is bolted to the floor’.”

“The local establishment with local prices” Be served by the hostesses with the mostest!
