Some old Ramsgate and Margate pictures and a ramble

Just had a look at the local internet which is a – not much going on that we can do anything about that I can see, the Hornby Hobbies visitor centre on the old slipways site has fallen through. I’ve been posting about this site and various plans to develop it since 2010, see http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Ramsgate%20slipways%20development?updated-max=2011-03-02T14:34:00Z&max-results=40&start=12&by-date=false

For some reason the result of all of this has been a very messy building site and nothing else, which is bad for Ramsgate.

POW! Thanet's International Women's Day festival Wed 8 - Sat 11 Mar 2017 brings together fifty events over four days across the three main towns of Thanet. This year, their theme Movers and Makers has been chosen especially to tie in with Entangled: Threads & Making which features over 40 international women artists at Turner Contemporary. It’s an impressive looking program, here is the link https://www.turnercontemporary.org/media/documents/POW-Thanet_2017_Brochure_Final_9-2-17%20f%20LRc.pdf

I am aiming to get back to Turner Contemporary and have another look at “Entangled: Threads & Making” an exhibition which I am having difficulty with, as it is all women artists this may be because I’m a man, so another go at that one.

If anyone knows of a good independently written review of this exhibition I would be glad if the could post the link in the comments.  

Sorry if some of the pictures are same old – same old, it’s very difficult to remember which ones I have put on here before, putting up local pictures on the internet most days for the last ten years has produced a bit of a memory malfunction.


My day off tomorrow as my bookshop in Ramsgate is closed on Thursdays so although a lot of books have gone out in the shop, best leave it ‘till Friday or Saturday. Here is the link to the pictures of the books http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/

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.
