Well, that didn't last too long!

I had a telephone call on Monday afternoon from the chap who owns the cafe below my studio... It appears that he's gone bust. When he called me the bailliffs were removing the equipment from his cafe.

He was hoping to transfer both me and the owner of the recording studio in the basement across to the landlord as sitting tenants, but they weren't interested in that and so we were both given 30 days in which to vacate the premises. There was absolutely no way that I was going to hand over another months rent when the only access to my studio was via the now closed and deserted cafe, so yesterday and this morning I have had to remove everything and place it in storage (at least the large bulky items).

I'm lucky really... The chap (and his wife) who have just lost their livelihood have just seen over twelve years of hard work go down the tubes in a matter of weeks and all his staff have lost their jobs as well. I have now started looking for alternative premises.

As a result of this intensive activity over the last 36 hours or so, my back and my knees are killing me!

Oh no! As long as you didn't lose anything you'll have to store everything till you find somewhere new. Total pain though,

Another shot of the bus yard in Golders Green Station. I used to get the 102 home from here until 1976 when Brent Cross Shopping Centre was built so it no longer terminated here. It was used as a staff car park for years and then reopened to supply the local hopper buses which used the main yard till then. Because of the route these face north on the left side, the 102 faced south on the right.

Sisterseagull, that's really sad. I hope you can find another space and get re-established.

Oh dear. Welcome to the world of running a business. I used to tell a story of my former business partner, her husband, and the way she/they forged *ahem* *allegedly* *cough* the accounts so that it would look like I owed them thousands. I thought it was a nice story of seeing off the bad guys and how to win the day against all odds... but all the business owners I knew said "pfft, that's nothing, wanna hear about the time when I..." and they would launch into a saga that did indeed make my little tale appear quite average!

I hope it's not going to cost you too much cash - in this day and age at least you don't need quite as much printed stationery but you may have some things with the address on. Good luck finding new premises - just think, you'll have to move all that gear again!

Hi Ren... Yes, I am already putting together a collection of limited edition prints of areas around South Devon.

I'll see how that goes first smile

I went to Coventry today to get this one, the only one (pair) known in Britain and no record of any others before them. It's a dual carriageway and there's no other way to cross due to a series of crash barriers across the road.

By the end of the month these, and many hundreds like them all over the bay, will be occupied by the grockles on their jollies.

This set of signs in Leominster was value for money, there was another opposite and one more round the corner.

This was the first and possibly last time I saw the logo for Radio Wales (Cymru) on my car radio so I took a photo of it. It is indeed in Welsh as was the music they were playing at the time as well.
