Margate, Greedy Cow, a few photos and a bit of a ramble


Had to go to Margate today on business, the wife and I, needing the loo on arrival and were probably the nth inconvenient visitors to The turner Contemporary, the café there had a queue so we made for The Cup Cake Café and that was full so tried the Greedy Cow next door.
When in a hurry we tend to be creatures of habit and not very adventurous, the food was good, proper Coke from a bottle, the wife won’t entertain a second visit to places that don’t have it either in a can or a bottle, only Pepsi, Coke from a machine, unnamed cola and it’s no return visit.
Anyway The Greedy Cow passed the tests so we will be returning there, pot of tea, coke, sliced beef roll thing, burger and salad, date shortbread afters for me £14.50

The photos are here, only about 90 don’t look at what you don’t want to http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop412b/id9.htm
The sea defence behind Margate beach is being replaced now, this is a fairly modern, I would guess around 1960 – give or take about three years either way - concrete in fairly good order, however The Environment Agency reckon it needs replacing to protect the lower areas of the town when there is a combination of a high tide and a storm.

The cost of this work is estimated at £6.2m and will all be funded by through the national flood budget, there is no cost to the council.

I may ramble on here

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.
