      Fully understand. My lad loves Marmite too. Americans wouldn't get it, and if they did - they wouldn't understand.... (post war poverty)....

        I forgot in my above post one of THE MOST IMPORTANT re-supplies, being by the Grace of God an Englishman; teabags!
        For me it would be rye bread. I can get German imitation from Foodland chain in Thailand but its not the same same..

        Marmite should be easier to find in Thailand in case someone feels the need

        Decent bread and good cheeses are a lot easier to find in Thailand nowadays than 13 years ago.

          I get Marmite and Vegemite, and a host of other "supplies" (like RJ's Licorice Twists) on Amazon!

              Those Mattij photos remind me of downtown Acapulco not quite so hi tech there of course but recycling was very much the order of the day. Old washing machines and all manner of workable items taken down to the last small piece I even saw old loudspeakers taken carefully apart to their shells magnets removed etc as well as old coffee and kettles spare parts. I remember when I was young there seemed to be a market for that here then labour costs become too high and we ended up disposing of electric irons chuck away as they also became cheaper to buy. I recon you could now buy an electric kettle for not much more today than it would have been in the sixties. Alistair

                  Maybe your shop should be producing cheese, not chips?
