Straight On To Today's Post,

as we are off early to go fishing,

 during the day I played with a program that makes editing videos a bit easier, but then in the evening we were out to Cherry's for our evening meal with Mr. Tony,

 it is on Third Road opposite what was once the X-Cite disco, first stop the salad bar,

 and a selection of starters,

 including sushi, but some one beat me to them! the good news is that the selection was made up again in no time,

 a starter of soup is also available,

 the sign says it all, 399 baht for the International buffet which is held every Wednesday and Saturday,

 there is an almost endless row of heated main courses,

 with a carvery as well, also one of Diana's favorites, pizza!

 so on to the starters,

 then we had a surprise, on our way to the second starters we bumped into Mike,

and Riza,

 second starters,

 then on to main courses,


 after a break, desserts,

so many to chose from,

plus an ice cream chest with 5 different flavors, after the meal we were all full to bursting, Mr. Tony very kindly dropped us off, after saying our farewells it was feet up for a couple from LA Law and then we were off to bed.

Exercises And Breakfast Over,

I thought I would put another short video that I made some years ago on our blog,

this is a look at the Bangkok fish market that we go to near JJ Mart at Chatuchak, but you will not see any of this if you now go there, all of this area has been renovated and is now a new building, so this is a bit of history I guess.

We Had A Quiet Day,

no shopping needed,

so we had a day indoors, we watched a few quiz shows in the day, then after our evening meal a bit of a treat, we had bought an American Restoration DVD, a show which we both enjoyed when it was shown on television, we were both amazed at how the guys could make what at first glance looked like a pile of junk into a highly desirable piece to own, following that a episode from Inspector Morse, this one taking place in Australia, a couple from LA Law then for us we were off to bed.

You Have To Admit,

the copy writer,

is the master of understatement, I mean how much more destroyed does it have to be!

Yesterday We Posted About A One Wheeled Electric Cycle,

well here is another one,

the Urban Glider uses a gyroscopically-stabilised electric mono-wheel to help you stay upright as you stand on footplates straddling the sides of a central 16-inch wheel,

 leaning back lets you slow, stop or reverse while leaning forward engages the engine in that direction, and tilting to either side allows you to turn using intuitive movements,

hopping from the glider to other transit is also simple, since you can carry the 24-pound vehicle onto buses, trains or planes, with a top speed of around 13 miles per hour, the battery is designed to last for up to 6 hours of use and can be charged in last than 30 minutes, currently, crowdfunding on Kickstarter is paused but the company seems adamant about making a go of this personal vehicle one way or another, the Urban Glider is set to retail for $1200, it seems that walking is going out of fashion.

A Miniature A Day,

since January 1, 2013,

 has been completed by Cape Town artist Lorraine Loots,

 the artist works with paint brushes, pencils, and bare eyes to render superbly detailed paintings scarcely larger than a small coin,

on her website you can “reserve” a future painting (it’s all booked up for this year), and she’s also printed five limited edition postcards for each day, what a talent and to be able to paint these without any optical help, amazing!

It Appears That Gamers,

as it's name suggest in this context people that play computer games,

have no limits as to what they will spend on a game, costumes or extras, so to fill a gap in the market you can now own a solid gold next-gen consoles for both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, created by the famous Italian jeweler Gatti, both revealed at the Middle-Eastern Games14 convention, the former is made from 226 grams of 9 karat yellow gold, while the former is comprised of 220 grams of 9 karat gold, the price for both systems is identical - $13,699, "available to both Xbox and PS4 fans, the high-end materials and exquisite detailing of the gold consoles make it a great collectible item for gamers who love luxury," explained jumbo Electronics head Nadeem Khanzadah, would I like one? a standard-issue Xbox One will run you at $399 ($489 with Kinect), a PlayStation 4 will set you back $399, so for me I would go with one of those and use the money I save to buy a car, but then I guess that's not the point!
