Will be there on Monday morning Ray at least if I can find your place (John helped quite a bit). The coordinates you sent me, after quite a bit a bit of massaging, probably will enable me to find your office - so please put the aircon on full blast on Monday morning.ray23 wrote: Boy I hope I find the GPS coordinates for my office soon :shock:

With temperatures across the country hitting 40 degrees Celsius, the Public Health Ministry yesterday issued a warning advising people to stay indoors and avoid getting a heat stroke - a lifethreatening condition that claimed seven lives over the past two years.
Public Health Minister Jurin Laksanawisit said exposure to heat could result in abnormally high body temperature, sometimes exceeding 40 degrees Celsius, which increases the of dying by 17 to 70 per cent.
Youngsters, the elderly and people with chronic diseases could develop severe symptoms such as high body temperature, palpitations, asthma, confusion and heat exhaustion.
According to the Public Health Ministry's records, five people have become ill from heat stroke this year. Heat strokes killed four people and made 80 ill in 2008, while about 32 people were diagnosed with heat stroke in 2009. Last year, eight sol?diers were also admitted to hospital for heat stroke and three died.
Jurin has advised people to drink at least six to eight glasses of water every day and avoid strong sunlight.
According to the Meteorological Department, temperatures might hit between 35 and 41 degrees all this week nationwide.
Temperatures in the North are expected hit 3841 degrees Celsius, followed by the Central region going as high as 40 degrees Celsius. The East and South appear to be slightly cool?er, with 37 degrees Celsius being the highest.
The hottest region in the country yesterday was Mae Hong Son, where temperatures hit 41.6 degrees Celsius for the first time in 20 years. In addi?tion, 30 cows died from malnutrition because the drought had dried up the grass, their main source of nutrition.
The provincial governor has ordered the Department of Livestock Development to quickly solve this problem.
According to Smith Dharmasaroja, chairman of the National Disaster Warning Centre, so far this year, 15 people have already died from heat stroke, the highest ever in Thailand.
He added that the extremely hot temperatures and freak thunderstorms were the result of the ElNino phenomenon.
