Monopoly

Met up with rep from Frank Salt and looked at two rental properties in Marsalforn, both facing the bay. Neither had enough appeal as both had balconies but not in direct position for sun.

Photo365 – Day 334 – in every dream home a heartache

I walk passed a large fenced off area most days and have been meaning to photograph this sign recently.
The fence went up when a huge Victorian property disappeared a few years ago. The large bricked building was demolished to make way for luxury homes. They never materialised and now all the fancy signs are looking a little less than luxurious…sign of the times.

I don’t think the company even exists any more…no doubt the land is being sat on until the economy improves, but the wooden fenced area is starting to look shabby. I imagine there are sites like this all over the country.

The title is a Roxy Music song – which is actually about a rubber doll, but i thought it suited this shot (with a different meaning)

Photo365 – Day 213 – pub for sale

The traditional pub, as we know it, has been in decline for years, but recently that decline has increased with factors such as high rising gas and electric costs, the recession, smoking ban, tougher drink driving laws and lower priced alcohol from supermarkets putting nails in the pub coffin.

This is just one of several pubs for sale in our town, just like most towns and villages these days. And they don’t go for much either. This one’s been on the market for at least a year.
