A few Thanet pictures a minor Manston update and trouble with a toybox from the 1300s

First an eclectic batch of Thanet pictures

Next RiverOak Investments the Manston CPO people who want to build an airfright hub at Manston with night flights have probably metamorphosed into RSP with a nice new website at

There is however the possibility that this is some sort of internet scam as I tried to check this with The Department For Transport who told me that they haven’t been informed of any change of company, so who knows?

As ardent blog followers will know I have been doing some watercolour sketches of Canterbury Cathedral, I probably rather unwisely thought I would have a go at the chapter house which has a carved wooden ceiling made in the late 1300s

In terms of fairly demanding ceilings to sketch this one is some where near the top of the scale, after trying I found I just couldn’t do it.

Then today I remembered the little toy wooden tiles I used to play with when I was a child, which hold the key to this pattern.

So while working in my bookshop I produced a preparatory sketch, I hope now I will be able to tackle the real thing.

For dedicated followers of the bookshop here are the pictures of the books that went away

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.
