Day One...

Welcome to Zumiweb. Yet another Thanet-based blog. There's a lot happening in Ramsgate and Thanet that is encouraging to those of us that have recently relocated here - and hopefully interesting to those about to make the move. And if you've lived here longer than us, then you already know it's a good place to be! In the last 48 hours we've heard of 1,000 new IT jobs with Chinese firms setting up in the next year or so, a creative arts network (ThanetCAN) is just pecking its way out of its shell (more of this soon) and the sun has reappeared (the most important development of all).

I've been looking at the amazing range of blog activities on the Isle over the last few months, especially various councillors, millionaires and others. All good stuff, and I won't even attempt to compete. Still, feel free to comment, challenge, contribute if you can raise the energy...

A little display of air and sail yesterday as the Grand Turk went for a sail, as two vintage US fighters gave a display over the bay. This follows hard on the heels of the Heineken tall ships race that appeared earlier on the month, a nice reminder of Ramsgate's importance as a port over the last few centuries.

And I've put a few more pictures up on Flickr.

Hey, and welcome to the Thanet Blog List.

I've noticed that I don't think comments are enabled on the other posts or it just me??

I've tried to enable comments three times, now, but I'm clearly missing something obvious. I'll keep trying... Thanks for adding me to Bloglist.

OK, comments should no show up for new posts. We shall see..

That's 'now show up', rather than 'no show up'. Must be my Scottish roots showing...
