A quick ramble, Royal Sands on the BBC news, HMV in administration, council’s budget documents published.


I have had a busy day today and have just got to the internet, deleted spam comments that seem to be leaking through, had glance at the news, which was fairly depressing, drawn a very quick sketch for the post as I didn’t get time to get out and take any photos today.

The Royal Sands development on the Pleasurama site in Ramsgate is back in the news for all the wrong reasons again, this time someone saying they were persuaded to put down a non-refundable deposit under false pretences.

I did ring up Terry Painter who assured me that if this person gets in touch with him he will endeavour to resolve their problems.

HMV another large chain retailer has gone into administration, in this area the effect like the Comet bankruptcy looks more likely to effect Westwood Cross and Canterbury than the Thanet towns.

With any media that can be converted into an electronic file technology is making things very difficult for on the street retailers, I don’t understand music retailing that well but I think with books, if the publishers don’t do more to support actual physical shops, then very soon there will be no realistic way of potential customers discovering the existence of many of their products.

The agenda for next week’s Thanet District Council cabinet meeting has been published, here is the link http://tdc-mg-dmz.thanet.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=151&MId=2693&Ver=4 as this meeting includes the budget, the budget documentation is available via links on that page.

I will endeavour to ramble on here, if I get time.

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.
