The turner contemptibles people pay to look at art and rotate in Margate

 This is not a wind turbine.

If you will for a moment imagine a funfair without art, or perhaps decorated by contemporary artists, perhaps minimalisticly, it therefore figures that one thing people are paying for at a funfair is fairground art.

 There is, as you may have noticed, a funfair in Margate, where there should be one on the Dreamland site, an eight quid armband allows you to ride on pretty much everything for a four hour session. Provided you are tall enough, a major consideration for my colleagues on this assignment.

Here are the links to the pictures

I may ramble on a bit.


  1. Michael, you need a hand with posting photos within blogs!

  2. You are so right Jeremy, I published the post and the 200 or so associated images while cooking the evening meal, handy really as the ones that curled up a bit at edges I just clobbered with the tenderiser, any giving real trouble succumbed to the meat cleaver.

    But you know how it is, there’s always one, I have taken it down to the garage and tried clobbering it with my fine-tuning sledgehammer that usually works fine on cars, but Uncle Sam is still hanging over the edge.

  3. Fine tuning sledgehammer .............yep that should have worked Maybe you need the version 2.3 for photo's meat tenderisers have never really lived up to the early expectations in the bloggosphere unless they are used in conjunction with Garlic Salt.

  4. Tried photo meaty Don but Uncle Sam wasn’t so keen on having one of Libertas’s spikes in his ear.


Please note comments that may be libellous, comments that may be construed as offensive, anonymous derogatory comments about real people, comments baiting internet trolls, comments saying that an anonymous comment was made by a named real person, boring comments and spam comments, comments in CAPs will be deleted. Playground stuff like calling real people by their time stamp or surname alone, referring to groups as gangs, old duffers and so on will result in deletion. Comment that may be construed as offensive to minority groups is not allowed here either, so think before you write it, remember that the internet is a public place, that it is very difficult to be truly anonymous and that everyone who uses it leaves a trail of some sort. Also note the facility to leave anonymous comment will be turned of during periods when I am unable to monitor comment, this will not affect people commenting who are signed on to their blogger accounts. When things are particularly difficult on the commercial spam front I may turn comment moderation on for periods.

If you feel that someone has left a comment that is offensive and directed at you personally please email me (link on the sidebar) asking to have it removed, you will need to tell which post and the date and timestamp of the offending comment. Please do not reply to the offending comment as I will assume you continuing the dialogue as meaning that you want the comments left there.
