Some more old Thanet postcards with the writing on the back, superslow broadband, a Canterbury watercolour

 In this post the back comes before the front

The watercolour painting another one from Chocolate Café in Canterbury painted this afternoon, this is generally where I wind up on Saturdays having finished my travels buying books for my bookshop. 

I think the perspective is getting better looking at the photo I took after sketching it in with a brush. I find that drawing the picture with a brush is easiest, probably because unlike a felt tip or a pencil the brush always stays the same.

The main reason for this is that Canterbury is usually fairly close to whichever Kent towns I have visited and has the cheapest parking within a short walk of the town centre of all the Kent towns at 80p for 5 hours.

We have just had to get superfast broadband – meaning that our broadband connection has gone back to normal

Here are the books that went out in my bookshop today

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.
