The Church of St Peter-in-Thanet, two sunken bandstands and the oldest central heating I have ever seen.
with some considerable amount of serendipity the day started with this poster
My main interest here was taking a look inside the church, so while the bad news was no art exhibition the good news was the church was open, so follow the link to see the pictures.
Link to pictures of inside The Church of St Peter-in-Thanet
I didn't really have the right equipment for indoor and fairly low light photography, but did my best.
One of the Thanet churches first built nearly a thousand years ago and heavily restored by the Victorians making it a bit difficult to tell whats wot
next the link to yesterday's work in the bookshop

Ramsgate lift and for a moment there
Sorry about this, especially if you are better at this than me.
I for one am not looking forward to reading another raft of documents.
This is the link to The Isle of Thanet News article I haven't bothered with the other local news websites which now open like arcade games, making the actual article very hard to follow.
Anyone understand this on which seems to say William Walker is permitted to act as a motor bus until December 1921.
I did get out this evening so this is the link to the pictures, nothing much unless you can't get out for a walk yourself

A few photos on the camera card Link 1 Link 2
Workwise the link to the books we put out
Then there is Google Chrome marking some sites as not secure i.e. http and not https not this blog for no apparent reason and yet the bookshop blog also hosted by Google, I shall have to consult a grownup, it will probably boil down to another way of the internet extracting money.
Today is the resubmitted Manston DCO acceptance deadline, not a tweet from RSP since Jul 16 this is the link to their Twitter feed as the DCO process is supposed to be one of public engagement, this sort of thing seems very strange to me.
Since the resubmission I have tried to engage with RSP on the advice of pins, this is a bit of an uphill struggle, best read from the bottom up, this is the link to the emails I don't think it is very hard to see why I gave up.
Anyway delving about looking for some answers I note that the UK Parliament website has published the correspondence about our MP Mr Craig Mackinlay's flutter with aviation this is the link to it
Anyway noted here as to my mind the failure to have published the decision by either RSP or PINS by mid afternoon on the deadline day is significant intisself and needs recording.
If I were to make a wild guess, I would think something along the lines of a recommendation to withdraw combined with the using of our political "big guns"
Another possibility is that this pins zen
"If the application is accepted, we will:
"If the application is not accepted, we will:
This could be interpreted as not publishing the decision today means it wasn't accepted, it's now 5pm on decision day and still nothing that I can find.
Accepted now This is the link to the acceptance letter

Here is the link to the rest of the photos
Simon Crow has just put his gate and bridge photos up here is the link
Work in the bookshop, this is the link to the books we have just put out
I ran away from work this morning and did a bit more to my painting from the top of the Pav aka Spoons
With Wetherspoons there is a real sense of it being a public house in the conventional or historical sense, by this I mean that I feel comfortable sitting there sketching without consuming much.
There is also a sense of connection with people who have done this in past times, Henry Moses for instance must have sat in the window of the Kings Head (The Royal is now on the site that the King's Head was on then) for a very long time sketching.

We went to Margate today, bought some books for the bookshop, went to Turner contemporary
Had a look a JWM Turner's picture of a cat, history is unclear as to whether this cat owned JWM Turner, however it is clear that Turner used one of his paintings as a cat flap, which is proof that cats appreciate art.
Margate and the gallery were very busy considering the weather
Polar bears are something I don't have much experience apart from the average readers golden encompass, which suggests aesthetics are not a bear thing.
I fiddled about with my watercolour from there
Spot the difference?
Took a few photos this is the the link to them
Despite the warning of rain we also went for a walk in Ramsgate this evening. Took some more photos this is the link to them
