let’s all have some fun! school fund raising family fun day

hua hin, THAILAND The children, parents and staff of the small but perfectly formed Halio School are putting on a mixture of an English-style fete, junble sale and American-style school party this Sunday 5th August in an effort to raise much needed funds. The fun starts at 11am and will continue until 5pm. The hope is that they can raise the 60,000 baht they require to provide a sports/playing field for the students at the school. The family fun day will have stalls set up by the children selling new and used books, toys, clothes and household items, as well as games, raffles, auctions & more. Refreshments, international & Thai food will be available. The HALIO School, which is located at the Highland Seaview Housing Project in Smorprong, was established in 1996 by Padma Fischer-White and four like-minded families. It is a community school run by parents for the benefit of their children and now provides Primary education for children aged 7 - 12 and Secondary (started this year) for children aged 12-18. There are currently around thirty students but these numbers are likely to increase as the Secondary program progresses. For details on how to find the school for this Sunday’s event, and for more information on the school itself, in the first instance please visit their website at; as it is a small selffunded school they have no administrative staff and everything is handled by the teachers and parents, so please do not make unannounced visits, although on Sunday all are welcome! If you want more information about this Sunday’s event or wish to donate anything to sell or auction, please call 084 090 9363, 089 910 1630 or 085 291 8685, but most importantly please go along and support their efforts.

‘the squealing pig’ owner deported


hua hin, THAILAND Rumours and hearsay have been circulating on the sois for weeks, but it was confirmed this week that Jack, the owner of The Squealing Pig bar and guesthouse on Soi 102, has returned to the UK following the intervention of the UK’s Border Agency (UKBA). Jack, whose full name has been revealed as John Joseph Alty, had been detained in Bangkok at the Immigration Detention Centre since May, after being arrested at his business. Originally from Glasgow, he was escorted to Bangkok International Airport by immigration police at the weekend after the UKBA told Thai police he was suspected of being involved in human trafficking. Reports have appeared in two Scottish newspapers, The Herald and The Daily Record, with the original

source being Andrew Drummond*, the investigative journalist who lives in Thailand. According to these reports, the 57 year old returned to Britain “voluntarily” after paying for his own ticket while being held in custody. The UKBA sent a letter to Thai immigration officials outlining their suspicions, and also requested that the contents “remain confidential and not be released to a third party or the media”, a request that was ignored as details were given out at a press conference. According to the UKBA, Mr Alty was “currently suspected of involvement in the smuggling of Sri Lankan and Iranian nationalities into Australia and New Zealand. On several occasions people of these nationalities seeking entry to Australia and New Zealand have

attempted to travel on passports in the name of Alty.” The immigration police said that Mr Alty was deported because he was believed to be a danger to society. The fact that Mr Alty had previously been jailed in Australia for drugs trafficking and subsequently deported in 2007 back to the UK has been reported as being enough reason for the Thai authorities to have deported him, but friends in Thailand still tried in vain to prevent the action. The death of another British inmate, Richard Ian Cook, 28, who had been arrested and was awaiting deportation in connection with a raid on a Bangkok ‘boiler room’, was apparently what changed Mr Alty’s mind about fighting his case and accepting the deportation. *

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. in the way we do now, and the term became established This week it is... Old chestnut A story that has been told repeatedly before, a ‘venerable’ in the common lingo thereafter. The ‘old’ was added joke. Hence, in extended use, anything trite, stale, or too later as an intensifier. In April 1896, the Ohio newspaper The Daily Herald took often repeated. The phrase has only an indirect association with chestnut it unto itself to explain the phrase’s origin. It published trees or their fruit. The derivation turns out to be a the following: William Warren, who had often played contender for old chestnut status itself. The story goes the part of Pablo, was at a ‘stag’ dinner when one like this: in 1816, a melodrama called Broken Sword, by of the gentlemen present told a story of doubtful age the playwright and theatrical manager William Dimond, and originality. ‘A chestnut,’ murmured Mr. Warren, was performed at the Royal Covent Garden Theatre, quoting from the play. ‘I have heard you tell the tale these 27 times.’ The application of the line pleased the London. The play contained this exchange: Zavior: I entered the wood at Collares, when suddenly rest of the table, and when the party broke up each helped to spread the story and Mr. Warren’s commentary. from the thick boughs of a cork tree... Pablo: (Jumping up.) A chesnut, Captain, a chesnut... The play itself was 80 years old by 1896 and Warren was Captain, this is the twenty-seventh time I have heard long dead, so the story was (at best) based on Chinese you relate this story, and you invariably said, a whispers or (at worst) pure invention. However, even if that wasn’t the first use of the expression and Warren chesnut, till now. Despite a drubbing from the critics, the play was a didn’t originate it, someone else could easily have used success and later transferred to the USA. So far, so the same source. The gist of the tale, that it derives from factual. Here’s where we move from fact to plausibility. the play Broken Sword, hovers somewhere between In the 1880s, many US newspapers began using ‘chestnut’ plausibility and fact and many choose to believe it.

Dordrecht, netherlands Dutch millionaire builds Noah’s Ark replica after flood dream A Dutch millionaire has built a full-size replica of Noah’s Ark after dreaming his hometown would be destroyed by a flood of biblical proportions. Designer Johan Huibers finally opened the doors of his astonishing craft, which took over four years to build, to members of the public this week on the Merwede River, Dordrecht. Using ancient dimensions set out in the Bible’s book of Genesis, the gigantic 137m x 21m ark also features its own ‘Bible museum’, complete with life-size plastic animals. ‘We want to tell people about God,’ the Dutchman, who worked with a team of 50 employees, said during construction. ‘We wanted to build something that can help explain the Bible in real terms.’ He added: ‘The wood is Swedish pine, because that’s the closest we think to the ‘resin wood’ God ordered Noah to use in the Bible. The animals are plastic and come from the Philippines.’ The project stems from a dream the 52-year-old had in 1992, in which his native Holland was flooded by the North Sea. ‘The next day I bought a book about Noah’s Ark,’ he explained. ‘That night while sitting on the couch with my kids, I looked at it and said: “It’s what we’re going to do”.’ Huibers, who claims to have been contacted by dozens of people interested in staying on board the ark, originally wanted to sail the tribute to the London for the Olympic Games. However he was forced to abandon the plans after Dutch authorities raised health and safety concerns about the proposed voyage. Mittenwalde, germany German town attempts to reclaim 450-year-old debt now worth trillions A 450-year-old debt could help one small German town pocket a monumental windfall running into trillions following the recent discovery of a long lost IOU certificate. The town of Mittenwalde could become one of the richest in the world if officials in Berlin were to pay back the long-outstanding debt. According to Radio Berlin Brandenburg, the certificate shows that Mittenwalde lent Berlin 400 guilders in 1562, to be paid back with six per cent interest per year. Today the original outstanding debt would stand at an estimated £87million, an amount which would run into ‘trillions’ taking into account inflation and interest. Historian Vera Schmidt, who found the slip in the town’s archives where it had been since 1962, believes the certificate remains valid. ‘In 1893 there was a debate in which the document was examined and the writing was determined to be authentic,’ Schmidt said.

Requests to settle the debt have been made by Schmidt and mayor Uwe Pfeiffer, however these appeals have so far been rejected. Berlin’s finance senator Ulrich Nussbaum, who met with the pair to discuss the debt, told the Berliner Zeitung newspaper: ‘This case shows that debts always catch up with you, no matter how old they are.’ aberdeenshire, scotland Performanceenhancing beer launched in opposition to Olympic sponsorship Just in time for the Olympics, Scottish firm Brewdog has unveiled its very own ‘performance-enhancing ale’ named Never Mind the Anabolics. The award-winning brewers will officially launch the 6.5% India Pale Ale on Saturday in opposition to the ‘shallow corporate sponsorship’ of the Games. Containing an array of banned Olympic substances, the limited edition beer will be available on draught at all Brewdog pubs and also sold in bottle online. ‘BrewDog has today unveiled a limited edition beer it hopes will undermine global sponsorship deals for this summer’s games, called Never Mind the Anabolics,’ the brewer said in a statement. ‘Designed to ‘unmask the corporate beast’ of the world’s biggest sporting event and highlight the shallow nature of sponsorship, the new beer contains creatine, guarana, lycii berries, kola nut, Gingko, matcha tea, maca powder and steroids – all of which are banned for professional athletes. ‘Never Mind the Anabolics takes its lead from the relentless marketing campaigns of global fast-food chains and international mass production breweries that replace the sporting spirit with a fast buck, a greasy burger and an ugly plastic cup of insipid, fizzy, yellow lager.’ Corporate sponsorship has dominated the headlines in the lead up to the Games, with London 2012 organisers keen to stamp out unofficial marketing linked to the event. Olympic boss Lord Sebastian Coe threatened to ban Pepsi t-shirts from the Games to protect official sponsors Coca-Cola, while Locog has moved to ban a host of other unofficial marketing campaigns. Brewdog co-founder James Watt, added: ‘It seems a beer laced with performance enhancing ingredients isn’t actually illegal, but it is definitely frowned upon. ‘Never Mind the Anabolics is a thorn in the side of the biggest corporate beast spawned this century. This is the craft beer community showing the sponsors of the games the finger in the best way we know how.’

parched Two men are crawling across the desert dying of thirst. In the distance in between the sand dunes they can just make out some striped arab tents and a bit of bunting and the tops of some date palms. ‘Head for the oasis,’ croaks one of the men to the other. And the two head off in that direction. They come to the first gaily decorated tent and gaspingly implore the swarthy, bearded Arab tent owner for water. ‘Sorry Effendi’s’, quoth the tent owner, ‘I only have sponge cake and cannot help you’. With no option available our two hero’s crawl to another tent, even more gaudily decorated than the last. They beg the desert dweller for water. But he says that he only has strawberry jelly. In despair the parched two crawl to the last tent and repeat their desperate need to the occupant, only to find that he only has custard. The desperate pair crawl away across the scorching desert and as they crawl over the blistering sand, the second man says hoarsely: ‘That was a trifle bizarre’. the Queen inspects the troops The Queen is inspecting three armed forces personnel, one from each of her fighting forces. She asks each one what they would do if they woke up and found a camel spider in their tent on operations? The squaddie says, “I’d reach over, grab my bayonet and stab it to death!” The sailor says, “I’d reach over, grab my boot and batter it to death !” The airman says, “I’d reach over, pick up my phone, call reception and ask “Who the hell has put a tent up in my hotel room?”

(thanks to David) Queen Elizabeth and Dolly Parton die on the same day and they both go before an Angel to find out if they’ll be admitted to Heaven. Unfortunately,there’s only one space left that day, so the Angel must decide which of them gets in. The Angel asks Dolly if there’s some particular reason why she should go to Heaven. Dolly takes off her top and says, “Look at these, they are the most perfect breasts God ever created, And I’m sure it will please God to be able to see them every day, for eternity.” The Angel thanks Dolly and asks Her Majesty the same question. The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse, and drinks it down. Then, she wees into a toilet and pulls the lever. The Angel says, “OK, your Majesty, you may go in.” Dolly is outraged and asks,”What was that all about? I show you two of God’s own perfect creations and you turn me down. She wees into a toilet and she gets in! Would you explain that to me, please?” ”Sorry, Dolly,” says the Angel, “but even in Heaven, a Royal Flush beats a pair - no matter how big they are.” olympics The head of the Somali Olympic squad has apologised to officials on behalf of their team , after realising shooting and sailing were two separate events ..

One official even told us that it has been cancelled, while another said that ‘it might be in the next couple of months’ and not a single soul can say who is meant to be organising it. Whatever the reason for this situation, it is terrible for the image of the town and will lead people to think that the people in charge are incompetent. 14

Capricorn Dec 22 - Jan 19 After decades of being repeatedly hit by buses, you’ll finally sit down and talk with one face-to-face and realize that was just their unique way of expressing their affection all along. Aquarius Jan 20 – Feb 18 You’ve always thought of yourself as a people person; after all, you have to have an interest in people in order to eat so many of them. Pisces Feb 19 – Mar 20 You really thought that when it finally all came to an end it’d be a little more dramatic than this. Aries Mar 21 – Apr 20 You’ve tried all your life to follow your dreams, probably because you had no idea of the terrible places they’d ultimately be going.

Taurus Apr 21 – May 21 The existence of rogue waves has been confirmed for well over 15 years, but until your sudden drowning next week, they won’t have been known to make it all the way to Kansas City. Gemini May 22 – June 21 It seems your cat isn’t one of those cats that dials 911 when its owner sets fire to the apartment while trying to figure out how to deep-fry Snickers bars. Cancer Jun 22 – Jul 22 After years of work and hundreds of simulations, the French government is finally ready to test its ultraminiaturized nuclear device on you. Leo Jul 23 – Aug 22 While it’s a myth that secret millionaires’ clubs hunt human beings for sheer sport, you’ll learn the hard way that some of them do it out of an altruistic sense of duty to society.

Virgo Aug 23 – Sep 22 You’ll be getting down and dirty, as well as hot and heavy, quite a lot in the near future, but that’s mostly because it’s time to move. Libra Sep 23 – Oct 23 Your life will continue in an uneventful and unremarkable fashion for most of the next week, but before it’s out you’ll have had at least one really good sandwich. Scorpio Oct 24 – Nov 21 You’ll soon meet a dark stranger and join him in taking a night journey across the water, but hey, that’s modern business travel for you. Sagittarius Nov 22 – Dec 21 You may have been hurt by it many times, and you know others whose experiences haven’t been anything to write home about, but there’s really nothing intrinsically wrong with love.

Chinese swimmer’s flippers and blowhole suspicious, says top official london, england

SOME Olympians may be heavily-disguised animals, it has been claimed. The 16-year-old Chinese swimmer Ye Shiwen, who smashed records in the 400 metres medley, was last seen heading out to sea at speeds of over 80 knots with her coach on her back. Olympic official Roy Hobbs said: “We’d hesitate to accuse a young girl of cheating when she’s achieved something so special, but we do need to take a look at her blowhole at some point. “A younger swimmer can often improve dramatically over a short period of time without recourse to mindbendingly strong steroids but even the strongest attack of puberty doesn’t usually cause somebody to start communicating via a series of clicks and squeaks. “I’m not being cruel about her looks, she’s far prettier than Frankie Boyle.

muzzle. However I wasn’t that surprised – absurdly large thigh muscles are par for the cycling course, but hopping and trying to mate with labradors less so.” Meanwhile, Hobbs has urged Ye Shiwen to return to the Olympic village, saying: “There have been some shady-looking military types asking about her whereabouts. Somebody saw them in a conference room drawing sketches on a flipchart of a stick figure with flippers and a warhead strapped to its skull.” The practice of entering animals into human events was first recorded at the 1936 Berlin Olympics, when a starting pistol caused British 200 metre runner Tom Booker to leap on his nearest competitor and start biting the man’s neck. After closer examination, Booker was revealed to be a cougar with a stick-on moustache.
