As i let sink in the Guardian panel discussion regarding citezenfour, i ask myself how we as a populous became so apathetic, what would it take to awaken people for them to say no more? Is there even the impetus to question anything that attempts or warrants our attention for more than the micro window of engagement that modern media requires.
There seems to be no action or inaction we will hold our elected officials accountable for, a fleeting interest of a couple of days is all our attention is allowed until the next breaking story is forced down our consciousness ensuring full digestion and engagement of any one issue is never complete.
It is impossible to be a cynic as every taboo has been broken, conspiracy theories are reality.

"After the storm"

A bunch of people queued up to catch the glorious storm breaking over San Francisco on Sunday. Some great images, but I liked this one I got after the fact.

It's complicated
Not a restaurant and as a café, has no inside seating. Just a shop.

Pro: Surprisingly good breakfast, swimming pool is nice, having children's fun park in the hotel grounds is convenient and good fun, a nice way to end each day. Bad: Room was not ready on arrival (old wet towels, hair in bathroom, beds without sheets, no bin, ashtray on terrace full) took many requests (3/4) to fix. No WiFi for entire stay. Toilet smell when using swimming pool. Electrocution from bathroom plug located next to light switch! Often no hot water on old fashioned shower. Air conditioning often stopped working. Due to outside entertainment in park, often noisy until midnight.

An unusual place to review perhaps, but my grandmother is here and whilst being in a home isn't 'nice', this place... is. Not her first home I'm able to compare to the previous homes she's been in and this one is vastly superior. There room, space for the 'guests' to move through the wide corridors to the main lounge room and also a garden (all of this on the ground floor) for them to visit should the weather be ok. The main thing that makes me rate this place highly is the staff. Compared to the poor attention I've seen given out previously, here the staff are like angels. They're great with visitors and most importantly with the residents, treating them fairly, not as patients but as real people who simply require assistance. I've been there at visiting times and also meal times when I've seen that all the staff there treat all the residents as individuals even under very trying circumstances. A thank you to them.

I confess to having been expecting more from this place. For a long time I'd hoped to visit the Thames Barrier and finally got there last week. What a great thing the barrier is, huge and so important to London. To the Information Centre to LEARN! Well, it's a small room or two under the cafe! Firstly, entering via the cafe is kind of funny, you buy your tickets from the lady serving food; I'm sure parties from schools enter on the ground floor through the turnstiles. The displays seem mostly to date from when the barrier was itself made, in the 80s! It's mostly wall displays of pictures and writing with 'interesting' facts mostly about the Environment Agency and not the barrier itself! Surprisingly little is about the barrier! There is a rather large model of the barrier in action, the centrepiece and other than that a mini-cinema (seats perhaps 20?) to view a TV showing a documentary (rather good one, but very dated) about the building of the barrier. I say it's 'okay' as I was eager to learn and did actually learn about it, but if you're not super-keen to learn about the building of the barrier, save yourself a few quid, enjoy the view outside and watch a documentary on YouTube!

Woo! Rock! ...in Surrey! Whilst this place might be 'authentic', serving up something those into rock/metal/whatever might like, it's hardly a nice place, but hey.. that makes it more real. The dirt is real here, yeah man. I've been here for gigs and comedy shows in their backroom and well, the entertainment could have been anyone, but I was still happy to go home on all occasions. It's pretty grimy and cramped (keep it real) but what really gets me is that this place (principally a place that serves drinks to punters) has awful bogs that stink, look like they've never been cleaned and don't have soap. It's very rock and roll and should you enjoy the idea of a sweaty, dirty night soaking up other sweat and possibly other fluids, this is the place for you! Real... but take hand sanitiser with you.

Cheap.. and tastes it sadly. In the area on a day out we decided upon this pub, situated on the river to have lunch. They have a 'day saver menu' where you can choose from a whole host of meals costing only £2.95! Wow! That's excellent value and I was excited to be saving such money up in London. Then the food came. The Fish and Chips had a fish so solid it was a challenge to slice; the Spaghetti Bolognese looks like something from a microwave meal and the 'meat' was avoided; the vegetarian option I chose was 3 vegetable samosas 'rock hard and probably from frozen' with chips (unusual, a change from the usual vegetable lasagne I suppose). You might say 'what can you expect for such low prices' but if a place serves such 'food' then they'll get such a review and these customers not returning. Food aside, the location was fine enough, table outside which overlooked some of the uglier parts of the Thames (not their fault of course) though you can see the O2 and the Dangleway nicely. Inside, it was fine but seemed like being on a set from some 1980s show; an impression confirmed when visiting the toilets (nice and clear) but with various bits of 'glam' decoration littered about the urinal and a host of deos and aftershaves to choose from; the lads might like it on a night out perhaps.

Under new owners this place has changed so much for the better. I was no regular under the previous landlord, it seemed quite a rugby pub and well, nothing special to draw me in. The new owners though have turned this into something pretty special. Ok.. it's a hipster pub, but that's lovely! So, out went the TVs... this is now a pub about quality beer, not for watching sport (I go to the Victoria for my football watching) and the owners have a HUGE range of ales available, sporting local brews and are even planning on making their own out back; this is a place for those who love beer. Also... cider, lots of local and special ciders here and it's a treat to have a sample or two from the tap and then indulge in a local tipple. There's no coffee here; the owners want this to be about the beer and cider, not one of the many gastropubs where people might pop in for a coffee and WiFi (though they do have WiFi)! The food is excellent, I've been in a few times for the Sunday roast and it's wonderful. Service is wonderful and polite, friendly nice helpful people behind the bar. The decor is warm, woody and cosy and when it's warm enough they've made the patio garden out back somewhere truly special (lovely hanging lights and ample bike parking) Books to borrow, board games too... a great retreat on Maple Road!
