Pleasurama another weeding, Simon Moores makes me stand on one leg and discover I have a brain the size of a walnut, a ramble.


Pleasurama another weeding, Simon Moores makes me stand on one leg and discover I have a brain the size of a walnut, a ramble.

It looks like weeding the cliff façade on the Pleasurama site is to become a biannual event, here is my post about last time they did it http://thanetonline.blogspot.co.uk/2010/10/council-weed-pleasurama-cliff-facade.html
This is what the cliff façade looks like today.



This is what it looked like last month.

I guess as we haven’t heard anything about The Royal Sands development for a while I had better ask the council what is going on again, unless of course anyone reading here knows and can fill us in.

On to the health service and fears about cuts, the aging population, reorganisation and so on.

There is quite a bit of recent stuff about this on the local web, the post by Simon Moores that had me albeit very briefly standing on one leg with my eyes shut, wondering where my wife had hidden the chocolate until I concluded that my brain had shrunk so much that I would never be able to work it out. Here is Simon’s post http://birchington.blogspot.co.uk/2012/10/age-and-ageing.html

There is a FaceBook group about local health cuts and changes, see http://www.facebook.com/groups/359186860784103 I don’t really understand how FaceBook works, probably due to my atrophied brain, but the KCC video James Maskell has added there won’t work so I am just going to try it in blogger and then ramble on.          


Sorry about the delay there, my bookshop is fairly busy today and trying to get the KCC video to work on all platforms has proved impossible. I can’t for instance view the video on my smartphone that has an Android operating system. Why KCC can’t use YouTube like the rest of us instead of wasting our money on some expensive in house system that is only partly effective is anybodies guess.

  1. Michael .. perhaps we should encourage a mass one-legged local stand against any future health service cuts!?

    1. We could call it the 'Flamingo Group'. Or, to appear less of a toff necessary to get the lefties votes, the "Common Sandpiper Group".

    2. See the local main protagonist in the campaign to save our QEQM hospital, which isn't actually under threat, is not exactly a picture of lean athletic manhood himself. Indeed, he looks very likely to cost the NHS a few bob in the future down to a self inflicted beer gut.

  2. Just remember that some people have just that - one leg and for many others they would gladly like to be able to stand even if it was just on one leg. Its no joke.

    1. Anonymous @ 7:00 PM,

      I cannot follow your reasoning. What is your point in the context of what has gone before? Do you seek to imply that Michael and Simon were poking fun at one legged people?

    2. Anon I spent most of my childhood disabled, went to the main school for the disabled and can assure you that being unable to stand due to a disability doesn’t effect your sense of humour, doesn’t stop middle aged people standing on one leg with their eyes shut in order to ascertain how much their brain has shrunk from being funny.

      I think your inference that the physically disabled have a reduced sense of humour is bordering on the offensive

    3. Overly touchy, 7:00 PM, it was just light hearted banter and even one legged people have a sense of humour. Recall an old army pal, who lost a leg in Northern Ireland, going around with a knitted parrot pinned to his jacket shoulder.

  5. On Pleasurama, have the secret meeting minutes and costs been published by our councillors yet?

    It seems a seafont buing venture: £25k for ramsgate Labour party, mystery tax havens, mystery plans?

    Another year lost.

  6. anon @4:43,

    Can you please clarify your points.

    What is a "buing venture"; and what are these secret meetings, mystery tax havens and mystery plans of which you speak?

    If you are implying that you have knowledge of illegal activity then should you not present your evidence to the police?

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.
