Saw a couple roaches approach my abode. Best solution is talc (baby powder). Roaches and other crawlers tend to stay away.
Of course Dish soap is a handy and safe alternative

Except for 2008 I've attended at least one or two matches of the Phu Phan Cup since 2005. The games generally take place in November with the exception of 2016 when the trophy match Phu Phan Cup game was held December 29.
Rivals in the games are from provinces in the isaan region of Thailand. Rumors have it there's a friendly wager amongst governors. Think one year it was a bottle of ... ?
My favorite cup moments are the opening ceremony, the final halftime show, and the closing ceremonies.

Originally designated as Armistice Day at the end of WW1, celebrated on the 11th day, on the 11 month, with a two minute silence at the 11th hour.
In the US Congress amended a bill on June 1, 1954, replacing "Armistice" with "Veterans Day."
In the UK two separate events are celebrated on that day. Remembrance Day is a memorial to all fallen soldiers, while Armistice day celebrates the end of WW1.
