Fires, fireman, heatwave ends?

Pictures starting with fires and firemen in Margate

Queen's Hotel fire

You can make animations where the roundabout goes round, but you can make one where much to the consternation of the man in charge, well it just doesn't, which only goes to show that the roundabout in your mind isn't necessarily revolving.

Of course if you slit your eyes enough you can probably make it turn. What can you do?

A sorry site where the boats burnt in Ramsgate Harbour, luckily no one badly hurt according to the press reports.

I would expect that this fire was due to gas, they usually are on boats, perhaps with so many boats in a confined space, some with people sleeping on board them we need better regulation.

  You can see the storm coming in this is the link to the full size pano

I think it spells the end of the heatwave.

Workwise in the bookshop this is the link to the photos of the books that went on the shelves today

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.
