Please read.

So Long and Thanks for all the Fish.

After considering long and hard about the state of the Thanet Blogsphere and taking into account that Eastcliffe is invite only and we have lost Simon's input to our little community i think it is time for me to stop.
This is in no way a slight on all the very good blogs that exist and the newbies that show more promise than i could ever hope to achieve,this is more down to those selfish few who insist that their way is best and will not even engage in dialogue on a reasonable basis,I will not mention names ,but you know who you are!
Some of us ( including me) get a bee in our bonnets over certain issues,Michael and I share the same worries over the development of Pleasurama and the Turner Centre,Eastcliffe concerns himself more with the general malaise that infects our little Island,Ovit tends to be against everything that the Tories do.
Thanet Life gave us lots to think about and many excellent links but of course his blog had to change and adapt with his decision to enter politics.
There are many contributers to these blogs and it seems to me that the humour and the spirit has been lost to some extent, and it may be some time before people of the same calibre as those that have gone come to the fore.
But, there again as i write this post it seems to me that perhaps the bulldog spirit should now come to the fore.
To be an Englishman in England has become an almost impossible position,perhaps it is time for all of us to show our true colours and nail them to the mast,by all means be anon,but lets not dive into the trenches when things do not go our own way,the English language is a rich one and surely we can blog and comment without resorting to threats and innuendo,I will wait on your answers and comments before a final decision is made,it's all up to you.

What's going on 2

According to the papers today Oasis have got the top two best British albums of all time,well that is a load of bo**ocks.
Dark side of the moon(floyd)
Sgt Peppers(Beatles)
The Winkers Album(misprint)(Ivor Biggun)
Even a spoken word album by M.Thatcher would be more interesting than anything by the brothers grim,in fact the only track I will ever playof their's is "Don't look back in anger"and that is only because it admits that they are second or even third rate Beatles clones.
These must be the same people who think that amy wine/drug house and that wally from babyshambles are good role models.

What is going on?

I have been sitting here watching the various shennanigans of the Thanet blogging fraternity and it is very sad to hear that we have lost Moores and Eastcliffe(Temp).
Regardless of their respective political persuasions they made life seem a little brighter on this embattled Isle.
Simon gave us information,pictures and latterly a better insight and access to T.D.C.
Richard for the most part gave a light-hearted take on life interspersed with tackling some of the more important aspects of Thanet regeneration or lack of.I would endorse simon's actions and wish the Moores family well for the future.
As for Richard"Get your finger out and get blogging"and remember to back up your blog this time,because as you know it happened to me once before and I learnt my lesson,ttfn,DVT
