An innocuous blog post about nothing much

My bookshop was much busier that I expected with today’s inclement weather and apart from deleting the odd comment that could possibly have been libellous and spamming those intent on selling dubious services, I haven’t had any time to blog.

Not far above the inexact business of drawing in beer while in a dimly lit bar is the process of sketching with watercolour and pen under the same circumstances, in this case it was the eyes that didn’t have it, or perhaps had too much of it.

The photo shows you that apart from flashing the people in the Belgian Café last night, something that I don’t think would have gone down that well, what you see is what you get.   

I both did and didn’t do better with pen alone, certainly a doodle to consider, the brains propensity to make faces never fails to amaze me.

I am still trying to work out how best to follow through the business of the broken exhibits at The Turner Contemporary, but am taking a break from it today.

If anyone has missed it the business of putting The Sunbeam Collection online is proceeding, see I am not sure how this site works as clicking on the same link seems to bring up different images, I am sure someone will explain.

I have a great pile of unanswered emails, apologies if yours is in it, most of them are local history queries along the lines of granny lived at X address in 1935, do you have any pictures of it then.

I don’t think there is any Local news not covered elsewhere, I guess the news that Richborough tip isn’t to close is an easy one to grapple with, whereas whether the prospective legislation on press regulation will impact on blogging is about the most difficult.    

I may ramble on here

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.
