back up and running

awol website revamped and relaunched

hua hin, THAILAND By the time this AWOL hits the streets, the long worked on (and possibly long awaited) revamp of the AWOL website will be done, and our website back online. With the exception of the AWOL Forum, which remains largely unchanged (having had it’s own makeover last year), the entire site has been remodelled with major additions introduced and new features added. The biggest changes are what we believe to be a more streamlined and user friendly look, an integrated login and registration system which does away with the need to have separate identities on the different sections, new Directory section and revamped Travel section, an events section that mirrors and expands on the Hua Hin Live and Balloon Chasers sections in the paper and allows anyone to submit their events online, an integrated contact form that does away with the need to fire up your email provider or mail software, online submission of your property to rent or for sale (for a small flat fee or on a commission agreement) and a whole lot more. There are now six distinct parts of the AWOL website - AWOLonline, Classifieds, Directory, Forum, Property and Travel. More will be added in the future, and more information, entertainment and other useful and fun content will be added - but not just by us; the stage is set for you, our readers to join in. If you have an existing Forum or Classifieds account you can log in with those (following some simple steps to activate them sitewide) or for those who don’t there is a simple registration process just go to and click the Log In or Register button and follow the instructions given.

An AWOL identity allows you to post comments on articles, submit Classified ads, add a listing to the Directory, submit a Property for rent or sale, join in on the Forum (must be 18 or over), submit an Event, add a link to your website (reciprocal), add your jokes, funny videos and pictures to our ‘Funny Stuff’ section, get creative and write articles (which may get published in AWOL with your permission) and generally join in with us and other AWOL readers. You can still browse the site without joining of course, and there is plenty for the anonymous ‘lurker’ to get stuck into as well; there is, of course, the latest issue of AWOL available to download or browse in page flip format, and all the back issues as before, but they too are now all available to look at without the need to download, courtesy of the fabulous website. The Travel section allows anyone to plan and book their next trip, or just read about the various possibilities along with tips, tricks and useful travel links. The handy currency converter, time difference calculator and visa requirements widgets all help to make your travel planning a breeze. If you have visited the AWOL website before, then come again and (hopefully!) be amazed at the changes; if you have never visited, there has never been a better time to go AWOL!

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 it came about. found is a quotation from Samuel Purchas’s Purchas his This week it is.. In the offing Pilgrimes, which was published in 1625. Purchas printed Imminent; likely to happen soon. This is one of the many phrases of nautical origin. It the account of Sir Samuel Argall (called Argoll in some is quite simple to understand once you know that ‘the sources), the English naval officer who had set off from offing’ is the part of the sea that can be seen from land, Jamestown, Virginia, on 19th June 1610, looking for a excluding those parts that are near the shore. Early texts route to Bermuda: The nine and twentieth [29th June 1610] in the also refer to it as ‘offen’ or ‘offin’. Someone who was watching out for a ship to arrive would morning I weighed [anchor] againe, the wind being first see it approaching when it was ‘in the offing’ and all Southerly, turned until night, and then I came to expected to dock before the next tide. Something that is an anchor in seven fathomes water in the offing to Sea. ‘in the offing’ isn’t happening now or even in a minute or The phrase wasn’t commonly used until the beginning two, but will inevitably happen before long. The phrase of the 18th century, but all of the 18th century citations has migrated from its naval origin into general use in of ‘in the offing’ refer to the offing as a physical place. It the language and is now used to describe any event that wasn’t until the mid 19th century, in America, that our is imminent. ‘The offing’, although more usually used in presently understood figurative meaning began to be the context of ships arriving, derives from the adjective used. An early example of that comes in S. B. Beckett’s ‘off’, which was used since at least the 14th century to Portland Reference Book and City Directory, 1850: mean ‘away from’ - as in ‘casting off’, ‘setting off’, ‘be off We have known wives to forget that they had husbands..., especially when they supposed that a tax bill or a with you’ etc. In its literal nautical sense, the phrase has been in use notification to do military duty was in the offing. since the early 17th century and the earliest citation

Eat in or Takeaway 081 455 5298 Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 Sometimes you feel like the whole world is spinning, spinning, spinning at a dizzying rate, causing the passage of day and night as well as fearsome Coriolis winds in the tropics. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 When future biographers address your astoundingly large body of poetic work they’ll just skip right past it, partly because it’s fairly complex stuff but mostly because they’re writing your biography as punishment. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 You’re the kind of boring person doomed to be alone while trying to solve all the problems instead of hanging out with the cool people assigning blame. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 Your health continues to decline as your skin becomes too sensitive to endure sunlight and your soul remains too sensitive to endure dark, smoky bars.

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 While you admire his technical execution and admit he had a nice gimmick going, you have no idea who Michelangelo’s target market was supposed to be. Gemini May 22 – June 21 You can’t shake the feeling there has to be more to life than “seductively unzip the jacket, primly zip up the jacket” all week long. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 You’ve read the instructions on how it’s made, talked to people who claim to have made it, even seen videos of people making it, but you can’t shake the feeling that when it comes to toast the toaster does all the work. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 You’ll be shunned at work when you go from indifference toward Whitney Houston’s death to frantic crying in a disturbingly short time.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 You’ll receive hundreds of unsolicited estimates from eager housepainters when you mention your love of Jackson Pollock while walking past a Home Depot. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Your short but remarkable career as the Serge Gainsbourg of country music will end Thursday as disgustingly as it began. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 You’re as envious of the moneyed classes as you are disgusted by their distance from and disregard for everyday life, but you’re still no F. Scott Fitzgerald. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 Just as you’re coming to terms with the challenges and rewards of living alone, you begin to suspect someone else is still alive out there in the radio­active rubble.

special pig A guy is driving through the countryside and suddenly develops car trouble. The highway is rather deserted, and having no other choice, he pulls his car over. Fortunately he sees a farmhouse a little ways up, and walks there in hope of using a phone to call for help. At the house a farmer answers the door, and hearing the man’s plight, welcomes him in to use the phone. While the man is on the phone calling a towing service, he notices something odd in the farmer’s backyard – a pig with a wooden leg. Waiting for the tow truck, the two strike up a conversation. The man can’t help his curiosity and asks the farmer, “Was that a pig with a wooden leg I saw in your yard?” “Sure was,” the farmer replies. The man says, “I have to know, why does the pig have a wooden leg?” “Well, that’s a very special pig,” the farmer says. “One day, I tripped and sprained my ankle near the highway. That pig pulled me from harm’s way and went to the house, got my wife, and let her know I was in trouble.” “Wow,” the man said. “I don’t know of many dogs that could do that. That is a special pig. But, please tell me, why does the pig have a wooden leg?” “Well, as I was saying,” the farmer replied, “that’s a very special pig. One day me and the Mrs. were asleep in bed, when the house caught on fire. That pig ran upstairs, jumped on the bed, woke the both of us up, and sure as I’m talking to you today, saved our lives.” “I understand that pig is very special,” the man says, getting a little frustrated, “But, please tell me. Why does the pig have a wooden leg?” “Well,” the farmer replied, “a pig as special as that, you wouldn’t want to eat him all at once now, would you?”

Daily, weekly or long term Never Argue with a Woman (thanks to Cliff) One morning, the husband returns the boat to their lakeside cottage after several hours of fishing and decides to take a nap. Although not familiar with the lake, the wife decides to take the boat out. She motors out a short distance, anchors, puts her feet up, and begins to read her book. The peace and solitude are magnificent. Along comes a Fish and Game Warden in his boat. He pulls up alongside the woman and says, ‘Good morning, Ma’am. What are you doing?’ ‘Reading a book,’ she replies, (thinking, ‘Isn’t that obvious?’) ‘You’re in a Restricted Fishing Area,’ he informs her. ‘I’m sorry, officer, but I’m not fishing. I’m reading.’ ‘Yes, but I see you have all the equipment. For all I know you could start at any moment. I’ll have to take you in and write you up.’ ‘If you do that, I’ll have to charge you with sexual assault,’ says the woman. ‘But I haven’t even touched you,’ says the Game Warden. ‘That’s true, but you have all the equipment.. For all I know you could start at any moment.’ ‘Have a nice day ma’am,’ and he left. MORAL: Never argue with a woman who reads. It’s likely she can also think.

Bratislava, slovakia Chuck Norris to have bridge named after him in Slovakia following vote The bridge, which crosses the Morova river into Austria, looks set to be known as the Chuck Norris Bridge with the film star currently having 74 per cent of the vote. As it stands, 1,157 votes have been cast in favour of Norris, largely because of his ‘kitsch’ popularity among Slovaks. His name is often the punchline in jokes relating to macho strength. The final decision will be made by the regional assembly but officials have said that the internet ballot’s decision will be respected. Regional governor Pavol Freso, said: ‘The same way as we have so far been building it in full sight of the public, we will seek that the name is

accepted by the public as well.’ Also in contention for the name of the bridge are former AustroHungarian empress Maria Thereas, who currently has eight per cent of the vote in second place. Another contender is a small village close to the bridge, Devinska. london, england Homer Simpson’s favourite drink Duff beer goes on sale in the UK It’s a beverage that has been synonymous with The Simpsons for over 23 years and now fans of the animated sitcom can try Duff beer for themselves. Homer Simpson swears by it and can regularly be seen sipping pints of the stuff in Moe’s Tavern claiming it’s a beverage which ‘makes the days fly by’.

The Legendary Duff Beer Company has made the beer available for shipping to the UK for the first time ever to coincide with the screening of the show’s 500th episode. Duff Beer, whose slogan is ‘Can’t get enough of that wonderful Duff’ has already been a huge hit across Europe. ‘The Legendary Duff Beer is a premium German pilsner that poses a crisp, light refreshing taste along with iconic packaging,’ the brewers claim. ‘The product has certainly fulfilled its namesake in becoming a modern day legend, developing a cult following across the world.’ Fans of the show can purchase the iconic 4.7 per cent lager online in either bottles or cans.

Featured Game Sunday, 4 march 2012 Premier League Tottenham v Man Utd 23:10 White Hart Lane, London, England Second huge game in a week for Spurs, who will be looking to bounce back after their humiliation by Arsenal. This will determine whether they can still challenge for the title or just scrap for a top four finish. A high intensity game, but we expect United to turn on the afterburners and put Spurs in their place. Away win.
