Yeast Of The Want Some

Haha! Now I'm playing up to it! Looking back on yesterday's item it does appear that I was still suffering from a bit of concushion. I'm fine now, though. Realy, I am. And a huge ECR 'Mwah!' for all the cards, flowers and god wishes. Here's this week's East of the Wantsum. As ever, clilck on the image to big it up!

They did try that a number of years ago, when the local farmers were already taking seaweed from the beaches and using it to renew nutrients in their soil.
Rather than just carry on 'allowing' them to keep the beaches relatively clear of seaweed, the council decided to start charging them for it.
Naturally, the farmers, thinking they might just as well buy something else and have it delivered, thus saving them a lot of work, said thank you, but no.

Maybe it'll work out better this time?

Sometime around 1990?

You seem to be hinting at some serious issues in these week's IOTG, Dickie, old boy?
Have you heard something about cheap disposal of a dredger that has since been re-sold for a much more realistic sum? Are you hinting that TDC employees have set up in the Parks Dept their own wholesale business? If KCC and TDC had no concerns about employing a contractor for TC under investigation by OFT and subsequently fined almost £3/4 million for some dodgy dealings with tax-payers dosh, why should we be worried about a few grand here or there fiddled by TDC employees?

As I understand it, European legislation prevented farmers from continuing to put the seaweed on farmland.

the dredger sold for only 36.000 much to cheap

11:36 you're right.

Ramsgate is owned by Wyre Marine Services of Fleetwood. Last year both her and Lantic Bay were working in Peel harbour doing the same job as err the Ramsgate did in errr Ramsgate.

The question is - just how much did it cost not to do her up and improve her - and has she been flogged off for more money - we should be told.

While that is currently true, 11:36, it wasn't at the time when the farmers stopped taking seaweed from the beaches.
I was working on a farm at the time and, if hay loft talk is to be believed, then the farmer who I was, er, working under, would have been telling the truth, surely.

Oh dear, I really must get my spelling bakc in order or this blog is going to look like all those other iliterate Thanet blogs!

No, what I meant to say was there's a nasty red patch where the plaster's rubbing. Any thoughts on what I could smear there to soothe it?

Put a sock in it, Dickie!

But don't use the pair that you wear in your Speedos. That would be awfully unhygienic!
