Report Mid-Channel

You've probably noticed that I'm not around much at the moment, at least not on the ground that is. I'm just back in from France and catching up with any comments on the weblog. With a bit of luck I'll find a little more time earthbound as we move into September but until then, expect some gaps in the 'Blogging'.

A quick view of Dover taken at 4pm today from 4,000 feet above the Channel. It may be a bit slow appearing as YouTube appears to be playing-up today!

I enjoyed the piccies as you returned to Blighty; its a pity that the only moving pictures house in Margate will pack up in November. We might as well move all the pubs and clubs to Westwood to sit alongside the multiplex and other big chain operators already in position. Despite the anodyne quote in the TT from our glorious leader today, this is just another nail in the coffin to follow a disastrous summer season for Margate. Keep an eye on the For Sale and To Let signs in and around the High St and 'old' town from October onwards as new and old businesses fold or re-locate. If Margate has been awful this summer, it will look even more 3rd World, this time in 2008.

Don't forget there is a good cinema at Westgate.

Mr Webb did a good job for Waterbridge in 2006 with his disaster of a Dreamland Funfair and now Dreamland cinema closes(also owned by Waterbridge as landlords?) Is there a scheme to reduce Margate to rock bottom and then snap up businesses and properties in the wreckage of what used to be a reasonable town? It is my experience that developers are happy to play a long wait game in order to make huge profits later. In the meantime Margate and its many small businesses and employees can go down the drain.

The instrument panel is a uniform layout in aircraft but of course, the more complex the system; i.e. a Boeing 737, the bigger it's going to get with more instrumentation added, fuel, turbine temperatures, electric etc, which is why we have glass cockpits on big aircraft these days and use different pages of screens to provide a wealth of information. Of course, you can move from one aircraft to another and still recognise the standard "T" shaped layout, whether it's a twin or single-engined design!
