Do you recognise the two historic vessels in this Thanet photo?
What do you see in in this old Thanet photo? if you click on it a couple of times it should get bigger.
Above is an artists impression of one of the Pleasurama submissions, as I remember the developer was to have been Westcliff Park Estates who have produced the very attractive development opposite the boating pool on the westcliff in Ramsgate.
Part of the offer was to have been a swimming pool on the ground floor, this would have been given to the town on completion.
The council turned down the developer on the grounds that they were financially unsound and opted instead for an offshore company whose accounts were a secret.
You will notice the most important factor about this development is that it is only four stories high, this means that it would have fitted in the space available, between the high tilde mark and the cliff top.
The main problem with the plans that the council have approved is that the building is five stories tall and therefore may not fit in the available space.

As I DFL'd back in the 60s I have lest the comments on various local facebook groups to identify the people.
I have the dubious privilege of managing tec for a fairly large and extended family and so this week I bought a very cheap Windows 10 laptop come tablet.
It is my first experience of a laptop where the screen comes off and you can use Windows in tablet mode.
I bought it to write this blog with when out and about which is what I am doing at the moment, although not out or about and with a usb mouse plugged in it's very good as a small laptop.
take the keyboard off and it's very portable
As a tablet it is nothing like as Good as an android tablet in terms of free apps, but for writing blogs and essays when you are used to a windows environment, it is very good indeed. word processor wise there is a free online version of Office and I would say it would be adequate for GCSEs. A-levels and a lot of university courses.
For anyone who has limited funds and needs to replace a windows computer it's well worth considering.in laptop mode with the keyboard attached and a usb mouse plugged in it behaves just like an expensive Windows 10 computer.
I particularly like typing on the virtual keyboard in tablet mode, this can be very difficult on an android tablet where there are buttons below the space bar.

The country working on the highest number of vaccines in a clinical phase by this point is China, followed by US, UK and Germany.
