Quantum Quantum Bitcoin

Yes and now we have to put up with scammers leaving multiple messages on websites!

One is Quantum Quantum, telling me to buy Bitcoin!

Do I ...Blip care about their Bitcoins.
I got better things to do!

Another today is joining the tune, telling me I have missed the opportunity to
become a millionaire.

Nice joke!
I do not want to be a millionaire, thank you.
I love a simple life with my paint brushes.
I do not need a million to live happily!

So those morons come From Ukraine.
One is based in Kiev, the other in Zaporizhia.

I got their IP addresses...

At last a New Watercolour


Autumn seems to have arrived with change in temperatures.
One day it is warm, the next pretty cold.

I thought it was time to say "Goodbye Summer 2018"
with this watercolour executed on paper Arches 300lbs, Cold Press

Paint: Artist quality Winsor Newton and Daniel Smith.

Why two different types of Paint?
I am always in search of different Pinks...


Pure Watercolour

PRINCESS PARADE HYTHE, when councillors vote YES



Today many of us in Hythe are mourning the decision taken by some councillors to pass the planning permission on Princess Parade.

These councillors are Judas!
Judas to the town they represent and suppose to love and work for.
Judas to the many people of Hythe who opposed the destruction of the green land and we were in great number.
Judas to the Wildlife that has been living on the land and canal for generations. It is going to be obliterated. They have no qualm about it.
They are no better than those who kill Elephants to sell their tusks.

It is a tragedy! A monstrous error of judgement.

150 houses to be built right on the seafront, almost on the water edge and a promise of a Leisure Centre that was the carrot to get the backing of the population.

A few years ago, the government  was asking for low land not to be built on, due to flooding risk.
Oh! have we forgotten all about it?

Anything goes when some want money!


Sandgate Parish Council, Historic England and Kent Wildlife Trust were also strongly opposed.
But councillors want it...

The leisure centre:
It has been whispered that 150 houses need to be built to be able to have the money to build the Leisure Centre.
But most importantly, it was mentioned that once the houses will be built, (this is the real project) People of Hythe will be told the Leisure Centre cannot be built on the place.

I am no geologist, no architect, no councillor, I am just like the highest number of the population an ordinary soul.

But the one thing I do believe is, the land that is going to be destroyed will be cursed.
You do not destroy an extraordinary wildlife without consequences.
You do not open a landfill that contains asbestos, hospital waste, dead carcasses and the rubbish of Hythe for years without risking an explosion of illnesses irising from all the detritus.

You do not build houses facing the sea on low land, without having flooding in years to come.
You do not kid yourself that selling those houses will not come with the risk of putting people’s lives in danger.
Hurricanes have happened along the coast and in Hythe. What will happen to these properties and most importantly their inhabitants?

We are going to have to witness the destruction of a land where I have seen so many birds feeding from the seeds of the wild plants. Flocks of long tail tits, green and gold finches. The swallows that arrive in the Spring having crossed the Channel and have a rest on Princess Parade before carrying on their journey. The canal where swans, moorhens, herons live happily. 
The calm beauty of the water, the bird songs… What do councillors know about it? Have they got a soul? 


They probably sleep well at night thinking they have done their duty! I would not like to be in their skin! Odious!

The PAYPAL SCAMS

Like most people who have an online presence, I am plagued with unwelcome scam emails!

-I have had all the Banks in the world warning me about my account being hacked and more...
I have been threatened for not opening my emails (scams)

- Now the scam emails have been about my Service Provider. I am asked to change my password, threatened to have my account closed etc... 
All of them are scams!

Today, I thought I should warn those who follow me...

I have received this email: 

When I checked the email address of the sender, it was not the usual Paypal address.
It was cleverly camouflaged though.
I went to my Paypal account and of course I did not receive a payment.
I did not expect one anyway.

***
My advice to you all is

When you receive a similar email, DO NOT CLICK on the LINKS! 
They either contains viruses or they are going to find out your Password etc...

Instead:
GO TO YOUR account and check all is alright.
Change your Password regularly.

Never be tempted to send these morons one of your angry email...
They will find the way to steal your email address..

So be vigilant!

FACEBOOK, NUDITY and RUBENS

Facebook is policing, searching for offensive postings.

It is my belief they should concentrate more on those who sign to commit scams and other nasty acts.

I am entirely with Facebook and other social media to corner and eliminate all hard porn that could damage children. Parents have enough worries about their children being online without having to be concerned about sex pages.

What makes my blood boil is when accomplished artists are being targeted for having posted one of their nudes!

I have had my account blocked for 3 days after posting the nude of one of my friend artists 
Yvonne Melchers and Alan Stevens

You can find their works on Grandmasters of Fine Art Exhibition

I was also told by FB, next time they will delete my account.
The funny side of the story is on my return to FB, I had a message showing me:

Happy Friendship Anniversary with Yvonne Melchers
There was a picture of Yvonne in front of her nude!!!


Painting by artist Yvonne Melchers, banned by Facebook.


Do they know what they are doing?

I think this time they have gone a bit too far.

From the TELEGRAPH

"The museums, led by the Flemish Tourist Board, claim the social media giant's strict advertising rules have made it impossible to promote one of Flanders’ greatest artists."
...
"“Indecent. That is the word used to describe the breasts, buttocks and cherubs of Peter Paul Rubens. Not by us but by you,” the open letter reads "Even though we secretly have to laugh about it, your cultural censorship is making life rather difficult for us".

The Flemish Tourist Board has written to the founder of Facebook.
Hopefully they will have a bit more weight Than the rest of us.

Pease read the article in the Telegraph, you will have a good laugh at the expense of Facebook.
They are attacking the grand Rubens. Where will it stop.

So who are those policing FB? Ignorants? bigots? Who is behind such decisions?

If there is a big brain, reading this posting, please can you start a site similar to FACEBOOK, for artists only!! and of course their followers.

Imagine if all artists were going away from Facebook, it would create a huge void there!
They would loose money too.

A corner of Staithes


Watercolour of this charming part of the harbour that has been painted by so many artists.

I have been fascinated by this place, knowing I probably will never have the chance to go there.
I was lucky enough to have great friends.
Artist Alan Stevens who was visiting the exhibition of Artist Sue Nichol in Staithes, made some photos and gave me the permission to use this one.

So thank you Alan for the photo and Sue for the inspiration, as through the years you have given to me many glimpses of the place through your magnificent paintings.

Executed on Arches paper with Winsor Newton watercolour paint.
Not for sale. Reserved.
