Same old, same old, a few photos and a few thoughts

 I think the pictures should expand ok if you click on them a bit. I don't remember the stags on top of Pleasurama but think the picture can't be before the last half of the 60s I suppose it may be the single story front part at some stage before it was roofed over.

I spent some time today chatting to other people with businesses in Ramsgate, mostly about the Wetherspoons effect. I think the verdict from the people I spoke to who are in some way in competition with Wetherspoons was mostly along the lines of too early in the season to tell.

On the bookshop front it is making things marginally busier, rather in the way that all of the local attractions do. This is the link to pictures of the books that went out today.

I would guess that something happening with the unused parts of the pavilion and the Pleasurama site would help the situation. Although what the issues are in both cases falls into the - a bit of a mystery bracket.

Conflicting stories in both cases, I think it may be an interesting summer for Ramsgate, with so many people already in the Pavilion main sands area it is obvious that there is a large commercial potential

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.
