Lost in Translation- Part 4

So it has been a little while since I posted some pictures of signs with questionable translations. This by no means indicates that I am coming across them any less frequently.

Howdy partna! This here saloon aint just for drinkin, gamblin and whorin...this here is a beauty saloon a Fabulous Ladies one at that! This is actually a common mistake, there are many beauty "Saloons" in Kathmandu. Salon people, salon.

"Things Good Do Good" I have no idea what this is trying to convey.

Does no one use spell check before this stuff goes to print?

This one isn't really incorrect, I just thought it was hilarious. "No Time For Girl". 

Here again we see "Welcome" made in to two different words. Why do people do this? It's a single word as far as I know, but here I always see it split in two or hyphenated. Funnier is the "Stem Bath". What I wouldn't give for a good stem bath right now.
