You would think with all the money they are making that they would provide something better than that cheap rubbish. Seven chairs and two tables must be worth at least three pounds.

I wonder what that landscape looked like when the hall was being built.

Alan this patio furniture is just next to the french windows, its there so people can come outside from wedding receptions to sit and smoke

What a load of tat,but some lovely weeds to look at.

Comment by: Aubrey on 29th August 2018 at 08:33

Correct Mick but the guests there have paid top price and deserve better.

What a cold uninviting set of garden furniture this little lot is.
There's no chance whatsoever of its chairs providing that 'lived-in' feel, and 'pull a chair' was never better exemplified; the gravel must be two inches deep, and the sound of crinkly footsteps - especially if coming from behind -, would be better heard if set in a Hammer horror-film. The tables are lopsided too - See if you can find six or seven beer mats, John.

The party's over, time to call it a day- no need to clear up, the wind will blow it all away. You couldn't put a glass down on the tables that's for sure!

Remember when benches were here, for the general public to enjoy the view,

Oh Simon, Dear, if you would, please share my sudden chill
Let us go inside again, then speak with cousin Jill.

Daphne, mine, you're very wise, She's warm in Crepe, by Sam
But deary me just look at those; your burnished long-striped ham's.

This is a meeting of the Brexit Committee shortly after the Prime Minister had declared that anyone who didn't agree with her plans was free to leave.

Good photo, Mick.
This is not a Poem contest, it's about me me me.

I hope animosity isn't creeping into P-a-D .
As I said earlier in the week we all appreciate the photographs and most the comments , people are free to read them or leave them as they see fit ! I hope poets and other commentators are not inhibited from writing, the site would suffer greatly if that was to be the outcome of recent spats.

Comment by: Gina on 29th August 2018 at 20:23

That's why a lot of people have left this site,same old.

Comment by: DTease on 29th August 2018 at 20:23

Alan, you may find the poems tedious but they are nowhere near as tedious as your never ending complaints. If you don't like the poems why do you continue to torture yourself by reading them? Just read the other comments instead. And why is it all about you you you?

Comment by: Veronica on 29th August 2018 at 21:03

Where does it say in the rules anything about poems? Abusive language, racism and advertising not allowed. Grow up!

Comment by: Poet on 30th August 2018 at 06:20

Perhaps it's time we clicked little thumbs up/ thumbs down icons in response to the photos.

Comment by: Gina on 30th August 2018 at 08:07

It's called Photo a day, not Poems a day.

Comment by: Veronica on 30th August 2018 at 10:07

Photos that can inspire those who take the trouble to write them. It's not compulsory to read them.

Comment by: DTease on 30th August 2018 at 11:24

Gina, would you like us all to submit our comments to you or Alan for your approval prior to posting them on the site?
If so, how are you proposing to organize that?
No one is twisting your arm up your back and forcing you to read the poems. If you don't like them just ignore them.
People must be allowed to comment what they want how they want provided it's within the rules of the site.
If you and Alan are hoping to bring about a site that only accepts the comments that YOU approve of then I'm afraid that you are both going to continue to be disappointed.

Comment by: Poet on 30th August 2018 at 15:16

Quite so friends. Free speech will always triumph over the censor and inquisitor.
Further,can there be a more blatant example of ' me me me ism' , than seeking to block posts you don't like?
And why is it that the naysayers never actually contribute themselves?

Comment by: Veronica on 30th August 2018 at 16:18

There's enough suppression of speech in today's world without adding more to a few lines of harmless poetry....Anyone would think treason was being committed.

Comment by: Caroline on 31st August 2018 at 17:15

I have nothing to add to your comments about free speech as it isn't anything related to that,it seems to be more about people wanting all the attention, and yes, THEY need to grow up.
