This page is becoming the new CTH home page. The old one hadn’t been updated since the site started back in 2004 (or 2447 depending on your perspective). Hopefully this rendition will be easier to follow and slightly less cluttered. The page may not work correctly until it is fully set up. For now the url to the page is www.coolthaihouse.com/blog, eventually it will be moved to www.coolthaihouse.com (replacing the old home page). All of the old stuff connected to the old home page has been saved and will still be accessible.

There are new sections on the homepage to see the latest gallery updates and also some random images from the gallery. There is a section showing latest forum posts (as before). There is a section showing featured categories of information. These featured categories will show new information on dozer projects, etc., but you can also access the information from the blog page.
