Some more Thanet pictures and a minor ramble

The photos are all pretty straight forward although watch out Ayton Road one with the building that says 30 Addington Street on it, if commenting on the when and where.










The Pleasurama site keeps cropping up in conversation but I haven’t bothered to try and pursue it with the council as I don’t really know what the solution is with that one.

We used to get the tall ships at around this time of year, but not anymore, see http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/search/label/Tall%20Ships

The Easter school holidays have started, so a busy day in the bookshop, once again lots of local history books and obviously children buying their books, which doesn’t happen daytime during term. I am trying to manage stock better by having a motion sensitive camera that photographs books as they sell.

I had one of those phone calls from an out of area journalist today, it’s the blog don’t you know, they put something about Thanet into google and I’ve written something about it. This time it was about UKIP and TIG, how you even start to explain this type of think to someone who doesn’t know Thanet…

Then there are the comments on this blog, which for the most part now are nonexistent, all of the comment occurring in the Facebook Groups where I also put the post, We Love Ramsgate, Friends of Ramsgate Seafront, Margate Ramsgate Kent History, Broadstairs and so on. With thanetonline blog I get about 100 spam comments fro every genuine one, so I have to set comment moderation, which means the comments don’t appear unless I approve them. The one in 100 emails about this has a button to approve, but this doesn’t always work. So my apologies for late appearances.


The books that went out in my bookshop were mostly occult and local history, here’s the link http://michaelsbookshop.blogspot.co.uk/2017/04/ramsgate-and-margate-in-bookshop.html

Post a Comment

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.
