Missed Margate Meltdown, old Margate and one of those days.

Sorry I missed the meltdown, so no photos of the bikes, here is the link to my 2011 Margate Meltdown pictures http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/meltdown

I was here and can't do two places at once 

Don’t know if that counts as historic Margate pictures, but I think you will agree ones below definitely do, click on the pictures to expand them.

A butter side up day today, I’ve turned down a Scottish fiver. What are you supposed to do? It says on the box, don’t take paper fivers, so I didn’t. anyone know the answer to this one?

Had to go to the chemist to get a dental prescription so took the camera to take some photos on the way – no card in camera and the dentist hadn’t signed the prescription, so I came back with my tail between my legs and am now writing the blog.

Another experiment in publishing photos online, these are of Canterbury and I recomend using the arrow keys on the computer to navigate it http://www.michaelsbookshop.com/canterburymaze/

Click here fro the photos of the books that went out in my bookshop today


  1. Scottish (and NI) issued paper notes remain legal tender and you should have accepted it.

  2. Never been legal tender in England, but always accepted as a courtesy, however recently there has been a spate of forged Scottish notes here in Thanet


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.
