In Thailand Support for King Grows Bellicose
At the entrance to a neighborhood in Bangkok’s garment district, residents have posted an unambiguous message on an archway decorated with an image of Thailand’s king.
“If you live in Thailand, you must be loyal,” reads a sign prominently suspended over the road. “If you are not loyal, you are not Thai.”
[...]
Thailand has always stood out for the deference that many Thais openly show toward their monarch. But in the twilight of the reign of King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 84, now weakened and living in a specially outfitted suite in a Bangkok hospital, dedicated loyalists are leading a feverish, with-us-or-against-us campaign to defend him. At the same time, the government has intensified a crackdown on criticism of the monarchy, prosecuting a record number of people charged with royal insults.

Thai King wishes nation happiness and success
In his traditional New Year's address broadcast last night, His Majesty thanked his subjects for celebrating his seventh-cycle birthday appropriately and beautifully.
Citing the recent flood disaster as a reminder that people often encounter suffering, dangers and obstacles in their lives, he urged all to always be prepared for such trouble with caution, with reason, with principle and with Dhamma for unity.

HM Releases Wishes of Happiness and Prosperity
His Majesty the King has granted a 2012 New Year greeting card to the Thai people.
The card features a photo of His Majesty sitting on a chair. He is wearing a striped grey suit, white shirt and a red tie with a golden pattern.
Next to his chair is his pet dog, Khun Thongdaeng, wearing a golden outfit. Khun Thongdaeng has been His Majesty's favourite pet dog since 1998.
Behind His Majesty is a scene of a flower garden with a white wood partition with the message "Happy New Year" in Thai and English.
Messages on the right side of the card say "May you be blessed with happiness and prosperity, 2555" in Thai and "Happy New Year, 2012" in English.
On the left side of the card is a quotation in Thai from Phra Maha Chanok from a book on persistency he has penned: "Even though we can't see a shore, we must keep swimming in the middle of the ocean. We can't attain all assets by merely thinking about them."

I am sure if this is the correct place to post it but I am wondering if the king of Thailand would possibly be making a trip to the northeast to visit his city of birth. It would be great but I can only hope.

Given his age and failing health I doubt if he will travel outside of Thailand again.

AFP: Thai king treated for digestive ailment
Thailand's frail king, the world's longest reigning monarch, has been treated with antibiotics for a digestive ailment, the palace said.King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 84, who is widely revered, was diagnosed with diverticulitis, a condition that is relatively common among the elderly and can cause stomach pain.
His blood pressure, temperature and breathing were normal, the Royal Household Bureau said in a statement released late Sunday.

In Thailand, A Rare Peek At His Majesty's Balance Sheet - Forbes
A new, semi-official biography, entitled ‘King Bhumibol Adulyadej: A Life’s Work’, provides a peek into the royal money machine.
A chapter in the book zeroes in on the Crown Property Bureau (CPB), which manages the crown’s property and investments. It confirms the vast land holdings that Forbes used as the basis of its estimate (drawing on a 2005 Thai academic study).
In central Bangkok, the king owns 3,320 acres; town and country holdings stretch to 13,200. However, the book sticks to the CPB’s line that the combined value is less than a third of our estimate for the Bangkok land (which is much simpler to assess). “The value of the crown property is considerable, but putting an exact figure on it is difficult,” it concludes.

HM is the richest royal in the world for many years (see Forbes lists). It's common knowledge.

Thai king swears in new cabinet after reshuffle | Oman Observer
Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej swore into office a dozen new ministers yesterday, resulting from a reshuffle of Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra’s cabinet.
The swearing-in ceremony took place at Bangkok’s Siriraj Hospital, where the king has spent the past two years.

Royal hero to the young - The Nation
Due to his age and unsure health, His Majesty the King is unlikely to be making more of the personal visits upcountry that so endeared him to the citizenry when he was still relatively little known. There are concerns that the public's fond memories of those occasions might be lost to the younger generation apart from the remarkable photo record.
But the Defence Ministry's "Creative Media" project in honour of the King's birthday has produced a 3D animated movie that's intended to show youngsters why His Majesty is so revered.
"Phra Raja Phu Yingyai" ("The Great King") - entirely Thaimade but with dialogue in English as well - is a "fantasy" presentation of real events. It's hero king, who wields a great sword and rides a giant bird, assumes the throne at an early age, studies abroad and then returns to find his country facing a severe drought.
The monarch conducts experiments in his laboratory and develops a magical substance to create rain, only to learn that another part of the kingdom is regularly flooded. His further research provides answers for that too.
The next threat comes from "brandname evils" which obsess people and make them yearn for costly merchandise. The king's response is a theory of "sufficiency economy" that restores contentment and happiness in the land.
The 24minute animation made by a firm called Symbol Nice Solution is theatrestandard and requires 3D glasses to view, but there is also a DVD version.

King says greed a factor in floods
His Majesty the King has expressed his concern about deforestation and the resultant flooding in Thailand and has urged the government to take severe action against those responsible.
The King stressed the need for the government to plant more trees and to take harsh punitive steps against "greedy" civil servants who allowed illegal deforestation to occur.
These approaches would help to both preserve forests and prevent flooding, said His Majesty.
The King was speaking to Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra and members of the Strategic Formulation Committee for Water Resource Management (SCWRM) at Siriraj Hospital yesterday.

Well the king has spent most of the last 2 years in hospital so I doubt if he will travel anywhere outside of his own capital.

Thailand coup gets King Adulyadej approval as junta dissolves senate | World news | The Guardian
Quote:
The king of Thailand is expected to endorse the leader of the military coup that placed the army in control of the nation, it emerged on Sunday, amid growing protests against the military takeover and widespread detention of activists and academics.

News of the king's move, delivered through local media, came the same day that the junta dissolved the country's last remaining democratic institution – the senate – and ordered dozens of activists and journalists to turn themselves in to the army.

King Bhumibol Adulyadej, 86, who is ailing and frail, is not expected to attend the a royal ceremony on Monday morning at the Royal Thai Army headquarters in Bangkok. But his endorsement will give legitimacy to the junta's new government and allow its leader – army chief and acting prime minister Gen Prayuth Chan-ocha – to establish an interim constitution and legislative and reform committees.
