Caterpillar plague in Ramsgate, daubing in Canterbury and pictures of Ramsgate Sands Station.

I took the train to Canterbury today, a rare event for me as I am usually carting around quantities of books in my role as shop assistant to the bookshop here in Ramsgate. Today however daubing was my bag.

Having arrived feeling like The Fat Controller, Transiting wosisnme as books are normally my bag it gets a bit confused, but here are the station pictures. I publish a book about Ramsgate Railways, so I just can’t help it.






I spodged on some paint in various places and I won't bore you too much on this one but here are three pictures related to painting in the Cathedral Chancel, which is pretty much impossible to photograph, which is the main reason I am painting it.




I know it’s a bit late for an April fool but couldn’t resist the attack of the killer caterpillars the photos of the caterpillars were taken in Ramsgate today and the article about them when they appeared in 1781-82 may amuse the antiquaries amongst you gentle readers.

Comments, since I started writing this blog in 2007 the way the internet works has changed a lot, comments and dialogue here were once viable in an open and anonymous sense. Now if you comment here I will only allow the comment if it seems to make sense and be related to what the post is about. I link the majority of my posts to the main local Facebook groups and to my Facebook account, “Michael Child” I guess the main Ramsgate Facebook group is We Love Ramsgate. For the most part the comments and dialogue related to the posts here goes on there. As for the rest of it, well this blog handles images better than Facebook, which is why I don’t post directly to my Facebook account, although if I take a lot of photos I am so lazy that I paste them directly from my camera card to my bookshop website and put a link on this blog.
