Vinnie's Mum


What with all the partying of the last weekend I quite forgot my fairy lights to decorate the float with on its last homeward journey. So I phoned up Vinnie's mum, they are featured in the Triennial book  on Pae White's Barking Rocks and she bought all her Christmas lights.  Whilst I was attaching the lights she set to work taking out the add ons, what else are friends for?

I was covering lunches on Sunday, I started at the Metropole, along to the kite kiosk and then Chodzko - a short film. Chodzko's 'Pyramid' is nothing less than “the creation of a myth”, well that's what it says on the website. Whilst I was in there I saw this had and Gavin demonstrated its usefulness! There are two of them so if you need a hand, go on down to the Stone Store.

Matt Rowe stikes again.


Here he is again doing some important maintenance, painting the float as we are using it, he doesn't want it to get rusty.
He is in the road......... cars are driving past and his suggestion was "Melita can you just stand there to shield me from the cars........." does he think I'm mad.........so I used what was available and built him a wall of signs. He was safe, I am still alive and the float is not rusty. Big smiles all round and no one got covered in paint either.

I was talking to this little girl's daddy, when I turned round and there she was in the float, using the mouse as a phone she looked so sweet, but try as we could Scarlet didn't do it on camera again.

Two brave men in the ghastly harbour shed but then into the bowel's of the ghastly shed's electicity room, with lots of moths and huge spiders, these men have now put the proper extension cable on the float and it works, it charged properly....WHAT JOY!
Craig was also the guy who put the lights behind the large Folkestone sign in the harbour, so when you see them lit up you know who did that too.

At last I have someone who knows about Macs and was around when I needed him. Gavin has now made the pointer on the Mac huge so that we can see it when it is dancing around the screen, in the past it was like looking for a needle in a haystack, now it is like looking for a 10ft pole in a haystack, Easy peasy.
