A few photos of Ramsgate and possible ramble



 My bookshop has been busier than I would expect today and when I went out at lunchtime today Ramsgate seemed fairly busy.



Very mild for January, which I suppose could account for this.

 If it comes out right the quality of light is different so the harbour colours are a bit muted.
 More work on The Alexandra which is looking nearly there.
 this is off Queen Street behind Sports Direct and Shoe World
 including a recent development there
 the posts here are not holding up the building, just the rendering on the bottom of the RSJ makes you wonder why they didn't just chip it off
 one aspect of publishing photos from your phone automatically is that you can load them onto the blog and then comment between them afterwards.
 until you get to the stripy cones and wonder what on earth to say

 closing the fire station at Westwood and keeping fire engines in tents says something about the modern world. 

 why would they move out of the Westwood fire station before building the new one in Ramsgate?
 Ramsgate's existing fire station only holds two fairly short fire engines


If there is any interesting local news today I seem to have missed it apart from a sort of no news by default on the railways.



I think what Network Rail are saying here http://www.networkrailmediacentre.co.uk/News-Releases/7278/Network-Rail-sets-out-plans-for-a-better-railway-in-the-south-east-of-England is that they aren’t using part of their recent funding allocation to increase the speed of trains between Ashford and Ramsgate.

The railspeak says: “There will also be targeted work to improve reliability on sections of the line between Hastings and Tunbridge Wells; Ashford and Tonbridge; Dartford and London via Sidcup; Ashford and Hastings; and Ashford and Ramsgate.”

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.
