Stamp on the toe for being so slow, GOD and the Queen and a possible ramble if I get time.


For those of you interested my Thanet blog popularity listings for last month, these are the web statistics for people directed here from other websites and are about as exciting as watching paint dry, unless of course people get directed here from your website, here is the link http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/612/

Of further interest, the old tourist information office now has the boards off the windows and Gerry O’Donnell is in the process of turning it into Ramsgate’s latest addition to our foodie scene. 

At the Moment the windows are displaying artwork featuring both GOD and the Queen as you may be able to see from the photo, clicking on it obsessively will make it bigger and bigger.


Next my thanks to the café on Ramsgate Sands, pardon a rather rambling explanation here:

I get an hour for lunch and if it is a nice day I usually make my self a sarni and wander down to the seafront eating it, by the time the sarni has been consumed I am usually thirsty and tend to go to the café right down on the sands and get a mug of tea.

A mug of tea there is 60p, the view is excellent and I often do a quick sketch while drinking my tea.

Well on Wednesday I left my paintbox there by mistake and frankly artists paintboxes are expensive items, mine folds up to something about the size of a thick mobile phone and unfolds well here’s a picture.    
I thought I would never see my paintbox again but the café proprietor had kept it as lost property and returned it to me.   
Incidentally most of this artist’s sketchbook stuff is not suitable for publication and is called notational, anyone like to take a guess at the one above.

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.
