Apologies for Absence

I've been missing in action for some weeks now. This has been largely due to moving to the coast, being offline longer than expected, and being generally diverted. I'm back up on the touchline now and will get back into the game when a chance arises, though I'm bound to say that I feel less ability to contribute much these days. The music scene down here in Deal looks promising. I may turn up something here to knock your way -who knows?

Happy Christmas.............Will.

Good to have you back on-board Will. Looking forward to getting the real deal on Deal!

Will, seasonal good wishes. Deepest Deal huh? May I recommend The Lighthouse. A music pub on the road to Walmer. Usually free gigs, with a range of genres. A very lively and active set-up. Acts are good quality and I'm told the beer's pretty good too! I know you'll like to be beside the seaside.

There's a bloke who lives on one of the roads off the main road between Deal and Walmer who sometimes does record sales in his front yard on saturdays.. Mainly rock and pop but a fair amount of jazz and blues and soul and gospel He puts up a big cardboard sign on the main road. His singles are super cheap and albums are not too bad - I picked up a more-or-less unplayed pre-oil crisis vinyl "On The Corner" for £20 which was about the most expensive thing he had. He hinted at rarities that he keeps indoors that don't get put out on the stall.

Thanks Ted, I'll look out for him. And yes Aly, The Lighthouse looks like the place I always dreamed of having at the bottom of my street. Had an initial look in the other night and my wife and I were greeted like old friends. I expect it'll go bust within weeks of my arrival.

Still haven't properly unpacked my record collection so my current closest acquaintance with World music is the car radio tuned into french Radio Bleu Nord.

Self evidently we have moved away but I've considered it more as setting up a second front and hope to still get up to London from time to time. Unfortunately the current direct link is broken due to subsidence between Dover and Folkestone.
