Day off ramble


Very relaxed day off today so not the most exciting post coming up here, having got up late and slowly we went to Broadstairs to drop off some books, have a pizza and in my case sketch the view from the table in the restaurant.
  
As you see the view was basically brown and grey, one for the sketch book not the wall.  

In my defence I took a photo of the view and some other photos which I have bunged on the internet here http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/laptop112/id4.htm

We ate here

I can’t manage a three course lunch at lunch time, but a pizza and a cup of tea goes down very nicely and works out at about a tenner, this is probably the best pizza available in the area, best to book a table.  


I was going to link to what I thought an interesting post by John Worrow but he seems to have deleted it before I could, here is the link to the article that it was about http://www.stonewall.org.uk/documents/times_coverage.jpg


An interesting reflection on changing times, the other news item to catch my eye today was the one about Velvet Underground suing Andy Warhol over the banana, see http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-16525982 another interesting reflection on changing times.


Very interesting article here about taking photographs in a public place http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/newstopics/howaboutthat/8950398/Jules-Mattsson-compensated-for-military-parade-photo-ban.html as it is the photographer managed to record the police telling him not to do what he is legally allowed to do.


The Charles Dickens pub in Broadstairs is getting a makeover having been bought by Frank Thorley, I would guess it will be open again for the tourist season.

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.
