Our Reply:Sorry - still looking for a (cheap) secondary IP connection as when run on my existing one they were taking up all the bandwidth and couldnt get anything done quickly. I should have more time to investigate it in September (very busy now)

Chris Wynne says:Hey guys
Fantastic website
Will the webcams be up and running again any time soon? They were great.
I had an 'interesting' chat with Alice the other night. It didn't solve my insomnia, but it sure as hell passed the time away!!!
Very interesting when she did confirm Dougie that you do wear your pants over your pyjamas!!!! Care to comment? :-)
Will she be coming forward from the 'pink' site to the updated model as well?
Our Reply:Hi Chris
Sorry - no. They took up too much bandwidth and I can't find a cheap enough ISP to install as secondary. Being a business everybody wants to charge me 20+ a month which, JUST for the webcams, is too expensive.
If I find one that will give me business use for a tenner a month then they'll be back.
LOL @ Alice. Well she was lying. Alice knows full well I don't wear pyjamas. She won't be featuring either on the new site...she's been there 6 years and her vocabulary isn't getting any better. I'm going to trade her in for a newer model. (but don't tell her I said that!!)
The "pink" site will be lost forever when I get around to it in November...but I'll be adding other stuff to the main site then also.
Thanks for your interest...and the laughs

"Myself and four sisters stayed at your lovely hotel, it was a pleasure we had lovely sea view rooms everything provided for us included free tea and coffee when we wanted it. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and helpfull. I would recommend this hotel which is clean and friendly and a treat to stay in. I will only stay at the Canasta Hotel when I return to Blackpool. "
