On the old Shoreham site I would occasionally post a visual comment.....it was suggested that any sketches found could be posted and see if anyone can remember what prompted them .......here goes!

Thanks!.....yes, it does not seem long ago.....time seems to speed up as you get older !
The sketches referred to when free parking disappeared from Shoreham and the council introduced parking wardens.
The next referred to a rumour that was circulating........

That one I do remember. We had a bit of banter over whether or not Shoreham's geology supported oil based deposits - low and behold bitumen (stromboli?) was found to have existed. (love the oil covered drillers!)

Yes I remember saying that I had found Lignite washed up on Shoreham Beach from a source farther to the West...also a discussion on Church Rocks which I said was chalk !
Anyhow the next batch was before the World cup when Shoreham was awash with St George flags

Was it England's disastrous performance in the 2014 World Cup?

Yes,...I think the goalkeeper fumbled and then dropped the ball !

Thanks for the encouragement........,there are a few more stored away but I hope that viewers of the cyborg/humanoid prototypes coming later do not question my sanity !
Next was a 'special' Saturday for Shoreham !

Yes,the brushes are replaceable,the one currently installed is now a bit short of bristles but we have a stock of best quality Kleenezy detritus mover Mk 1  for spares.
Regarding patents we will have to look into that before we go onto 'Dragons Den' we will also have to remove the Lincoln logo from the side as the contract is not yet finalised.
