Sunday Ramble

the chill wind meant that today was pretty much canceled due to lack of interest. shopping had to be done and the fairer sex in my family did the Sainsbury mission while i sat in the cafe and sketched.
As you see I didn't get very far, mainly because I had a salad and pot of tea to consume as well. For any art critics here is a close up which you can click on and make much bigger than the original.
 Demolition of the old Sainsbury supermarket was well underway, sorry it's all a bit in the distance I have ordered a clip on telephoto for my phone from China.
Well click on it compulsively and you may be able to see the remains.

Tomorrow Manston comes up at parliament and I think some sort of mass demonstration is planned by the save the airport supporters.

I may ramble on here


  1. Mass demonstration in London? They struggle to get a more than few dozen in Margate !

  2. Whilst we are on the subject of car fumed windswept landscapes; does anyone know why approximately 40 metres of mature hedges have been removed from the public garden opposite the Granville Hotel flats on the Ramsgate Eastcliff Seafront?

  3. 6.48

    It's easier for a lot of Manston supporters to get to London, most of them live a long way from Thanet.

  5. thanks for approving the above comment Michael, but I have decided to do a post about it on my blog. This still does not prevent any of your readers trying to answer the question posed if they can?

  6. Manston select committee live (17.24 2/2)


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.
