Having spent most of the morning learning about vortex damage caused by aircraft which is somewhat tedious but has to be done, I recall someone once compared flying to, falling but missing the ground.
It would seem that quite a few aviation accidents do not in fact involve falling and hitting the ground.
As I am writing this news of two aircraft colliding over Wales is coming in and I can only think in terms of vortexes.
British Airways have replied saying they can find no information about BAWC moving to Manston, which seems a bit odd.
At one time all of the books that were in any sense saleable or interesting, that we had too many copies of or were damaged or wouldn’t sell at price that was economic for us, I donated to charity shops.
I am a person who is inclined to check up on things and I found that some of what I was donating didn’t seem to be appearing, quite a bit was going onto landfill but worse than any of this they were pricing them far to expensively, there were exceptions to this where some charity shops did some things ok.
Anyway some time ago, when I could see the recession coming, I decided that it was poorer local people that should benefit from these cheap books and so I set up a recession section at back of the shop with all the hardbacks priced at 10p and all the paperbacks priced at 5p.
I was idly looking through this recession section and came across a couple of things that amused me, the first being the bit of text about British workers which seemed rather appropriate at the moment.
The British jobs for British thing does have connotations of a Labour government in a bit of an Animal Farm situation, I am not for a moment suggesting that labour MPs are fattening up the workers for consumption, but here in Thanet, some Jobs at Thanet Earth are being exclusively advertised abroad.
The other book was an odd volume of Pictorial Knowledge with some unusual transport pictures, this I acquired for myself a snip a 10p.
Some times with books it’s what you notice more than what you know and it’s always worth a second look at books, my wife once found a play that I had priced at 80p had been signed by all of the cast of the first production, she sold it for £80.
