There are many smiles and now readers can examine the Barbarian smile/s at the end of each chapter. This work is a continuing look at the ups and downs of modernization in Thailand. Said progress makes Thailand one of the better choices for expat residence. The reason so far has been high-tech and low prices. This is a heady mix and attracts many foreigners even for medical care. As things change quickly, especially in Bangkok, it is good to have frequent updates as to the people, culture and events. The Smile/s books aim at analysis and humor at the same time. In the beginning with Siam Smile/s the focus was mainly on Thais and their bags of tricks. The effort was to give foreigners a clue as to what to expect through comical situations. However, after assiduously studying local people, it finally comes about that the Barbarians, those wonderful Western visitors, are worthy of a good look as well. The result has been a succinct glimpse of how simple European-US people have a difficult time with the basics of complex Thai culture. At the same time, Thais wedged into their modality bio-stasis have no idea about the Barbarians visitors or of their cultures. At times it nearly causes vertigo to spot Thais doing Mental Erase to things they don’t like and foreigners going toe-to-toe with them using denial. Most humorous of all is when Thais and Barbarians simultaneously dodge reality. Reality is the serious Adult world not the denial, pretending and dodging that many Thais and aliens engage in every day. All of this points to a planetary meltdown and human IQ in the West down many points. In the end, Bird Poop Farang Smile/s is a kind of manual for those who appreciate cultural tools and are ready to have a good laugh.

You could be forgiven for thinking that the smile has no history; it has always been the same. However, just as different cultures in our own day have different rules about smiling, so did different societies in the past. In fact, amazing as it might seem, it was only in late eighteenth century France that western civilization discovered the art of the smile. In the 'Old Regime of Teeth' which prevailed in western Europe until then, smiling was quite literally frowned upon. Individuals were fatalistic about tooth loss, and their open mouths would often have been visually repulsive. Rules of conduct dating back to Antiquity disapproved of the opening of the mouth to express feelings in most social situations. Open and unrestrained smiling was associated with the impolite lower orders. In late eighteenth-century Paris, however, these age-old conventions changed, reflecting broader transformations in the way people expressed their feelings. This allowed the emergence of the modern smile par excellence: the open-mouthed smile which, while highlighting physical beauty and expressing individual identity, revealed white teeth. It was a transformation linked to changing patterns of politeness, new ideals of sensibility, shifts in styles of self-presentation - and, not least, the emergence of scientific dentistry. These changes seemed to usher in a revolution, a revolution in smiling. Yet if the French revolutionaries initially went about their business with a smile on their faces, the Reign of Terror soon wiped it off. Only in the twentieth century would the white-tooth smile re-emerge as an accepted model of self-presentation. In this entertaining, absorbing, and highly original work of cultural history, Colin Jones ranges from the history of art, literature, and culture to the history of science, medicine, and dentistry, to tell a unique and untold story about a facial expression at the heart of western civilization.

During the late summer of 1915 Captain Aidan Liddell's gallant exploits filled many newspaper columns and he was feted as a national hero. Already decorated for bravery while serving with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps, and it was as a pilot that he attracted national acclaim.Badly wounded over enemy occupied Belgium, Liddell lost consciousness as his two-seater RE5 aircraft was raked by machine gun fire, and plunged out of control towards the ground. Despite terrible injuries and the extensive damage to his machine, he somehow recovered from an inverted dive and flew on for a further half an hour to the safety of the Allied lines, so saving his observer and a valuable aircraft.For this action he was awarded the Victoria Cross, but did not live to receive Britain's highest gallantry award and succumbed to his wounds a month later. With a Smile and a Wave provides a vivid picture of the squalor and danger of war, the backbreaking hardship of trench life and of the challenges of pioneer air fighting. It draws extensively on Captain Liddell's own letters and diaries and exposes the character and courage of the man in his own often compelling and moving words. But it is a story not just of war, but of growing up in a devout and prosperous family, of a Jesuit education at Stonyhurst College, and of Edwardian Oxford before the Great War. It portrays the privileged lifestyle of the English country gentleman, and describes how a very close knit and patriotic family dealt with the adversity of war.

Sometimes people do not communicate emotions and feelings. Perhaps their personality is emotionally detached because somewhere in their life they had to put up a wall to protect their heart. This was my situation. God showed me how to overcome living with a person who was emotionally detached. When we hear what God has to say and obey it in dealing with our spouses, he will change the other person for our benefit, and in this process we are the better person too. I’m glad God knew exactly what he was getting when he made me. When we get married it’s only what we think we are getting that we get. I’m so glad my God is big enough to fix anything. Where there is silence, so is God. You see, sometimes, when family and friends are around all the time, the noise keeps us from hearing God. It is so easy to pick up the phone and say, “Guess what?” and tell someone about our day, or ask their opinion about something, perhaps just to have somebody listen. Just like women do not want to share their husbands, so is our God. We have a jealous God. He wants us to talk to him every day, even about the smallest things. And he has been so good to me. I know he certainly deserves my, “Guess what?” Because he’s always listening, even when we’re not.

“A charming, thoughtful book, one that makes a powerful case for smiles as ‘social acts with consequences.’ ”—Boston Sunday Globe When someone smiles, the effects are often positive: a glum mood lifts; an apology is accepted; a deal is struck; a flirtation begins. But change the circumstances or the cast of a smile, and the terms shift: a rival grins to get under your skin; a bully’s smirk unsettles his mark. Marianne LaFrance, called the world’s expert on smiles, investigates the familiar grin and finds that it is not quite as simple as it first appears. LaFrance shows how the smile says much more than we realize—or care to admit: not just cheerful expressions, smiles are social acts with serious consequences. Drawing on her research conducted at Yale University and Boston College as well as the latest studies in psychology, medicine, anthropology, biology, and computer science, LaFrance explores the compelling science behind the smile. Who shows more fake smiles, popular kids or unpopular kids? Is it good or bad when a bereaved person smiles? These are some of the questions answered in this groundbreaking and insightful work. To read it is to learn just how much the smile influences our lives and our relationships.
