As Thailand races towards it’s globally recognized water festival, Songkran, heralding in of the Thai New Year, all indications are that the 2011 Songkran celebrations in Thailand will be the wettest for a long time, though not as a result of over enthusiastic celebrations.The Thai Meteorological Department says a cold air system from China that crossed into Thailand yesterday, April 4 and today, April 5, will lower temperatures for the 2011 Songkran celebrations next week, with temperatures forecast to be around a mild 30C (86F), compared to the usual temperatures of around 40C (104F).As the death toll from the Thailand southern floods reached 53, fingers are already being pointed at illegal logging being to balsam for much of the flash flooding, mudslides and destruction, with one former agricultural official blaming those encroaching on government land to clear and grow rubber and palm plantations as being at fault.According to the Prime Ministers Office up to 580,000 homes have been affected by the floods, with the government approving a flood recovery assistance fund of Bt4.5 billion ($148.851 million) from budget reserves to provide each flooded home with a cash grant of Bt5,000 ($165.40) each.See the guide to 2011 Songkran dates and events across Thailand

Looking at the paper for a good film to see this weekend and every cinema has the dreaded Harry Potter playing on virtually every screen. This being the first weekend for ages I've had the opportunity to go to the cinema I was looking forward to it, but I am not going to sit through Harry Potter, the 132nd episode, so what else is there to see for a bit of quality entertainment?

Looking for interesting activities and things to do for recently divorced female with no kids, under 50 (just!) I've never been too keen on women's clubs, but interested in any suggestions people might have on things that will keep me busy in my limited spare time at the weekends. Too busy during the week because of work commitments. Thanks all.
