Hi – Frank’s first Retirement Post

Hi  Sawasdee Khrap

Just playing around with Photoshop and made a attempt at a photo-merge.  This is a view from our apt – facing Northwest, looking at Doi Suthep Temple – FullViewPSKtxt-1997x480optmade from a spread of 4 photos to capture the whole scene.  I am sorry that the Temple is hidden in the clouds, but the rest of the scene looked so pretty this morning I had to shoot it.  I hope you enjoy and the enlargement shows how beautiful it is here.   Temp is about 76F, and what a lovely day.  I plan on going to get a massage this afternoon and then come back to work on the other pictures and videos we have made in the past few months. 

I will be posting here regularly, I hope, at least I’ll try.   All my post will be kept in the “Frank’s Blog” Category.   Looking forward to your comments and suggestions.   Please give me some ideas about what you would like to see or visit.  I will really try to show you “Unseen” Thailand in my travels – cultural and historical sites that the normal tours do not visit, articles on village life and customs, exciting and beautiful places around Thailand that you could plan your next vacation to see.

We are really looking forward to having the Storefront Shopping Cart working too – having a terrible time getting one that will integrate into this site and offer the options needed to properly present our artist’s products.  The makers of the new software have told us that the next version of the program will be available in about two weeks and has just what we are looking for – so we will just have to wait.  I hope the wait is not wasted time – the lite version seems to work OK so lets pray it does what they say it will.

Ciao

Frank

 

 

 

Online- but not complete

Hi

This is our new format – Please check it out and leave a comment or suggestion. Most of the pages have been completed and I hope you like them. We have not opened the site up to full traffic yet. We plan to publish to the search engines as soon as the “Store” portion is fully functional.

The store isn’t open yet because we had to change software – the cart we were using, or trying to use, wouldn’t handle our products correctly, so we are setting up a new one. Also searching for a special product was a real problem – seemed to take forever and was not a simple point and click. Hopeful the new cart will eliminate these problems.

Frank is getting ready to start posting his weekly travel logs here and has started to shut down his other blog — you can now find him here at:

Category – Frank’s Blog ——— see the Categories and Archive sections.

I will also begin posting more about Thailand, it’s culture, holidays, food and “Unseen” treasures. I hope you will like these and we need the comments to help the site grow *** please leave a comment and your suggestions *** of Thailand places or things you would like to know more about.

Thanks

Happy New Year !

Songkran 2006

It’s New Year!!, Thai style! Here are some pictures from the festival outside our office here in Chiang Mai. It’s 107 F. but you really don’t mind the sweltering heat when your getting drenched. Wet, Wild and Wonderful – says the Bangkok Post.
This festival, which lasts from April 13th to the 15th is celebrated all across Thailand – but no where like here in the north. Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Lampang have events Wet,Wild, Wonderful…and parades every day. Be prepared to get drenched and have a lot of fun. Where we are located, several stages have been setup for dancing and music – the streets are full of people, loud music , water and traffic is at a stand still – there are kids in the back of trucks with 55 gal drums of water, soaking everyone who walks by.

CRW4145PlaceJPGWater guns, buckets of water & water canons are your only defense, everyone has one – join in the fun. Not a cloud in the sky, but today rivers of water are running down the curbs. You would swear we are in the middle of the monsoon season.

And did I mention the sweaters, tee shirts and pants – wet and showing every curve, quite a show. You need to be here – it’s fantastic. – Next time – plan your vacation in Thailand.
