It would have been before the ’07 election that I came across this bloke called Miglo on Tim Dunlop’s Blogocracy. I can’t say that I was hugely impressed with him and his WCP (wealth crazed prick) persona but then one day I spotted this one.
To be as Tim, to dream and sail on seas of fire and light,
To calm the tide with with outspread arms and greet the morning bright,
And quell the fears of voices old from far beneath the deep,
Who must return, as all of us, doomed to restless sleep.

He’s not f**kin’ dead!
Talk about bringing a tear to a glass eye!

And I thought there is a lot more to this bloke than what it seems. **Yes you too Reb.
***And Migs will probably hate me for putting this one up, but I love it.
The other one that immediately comes to mind from around that time is the putting-up-the-barbeque episode. I think that this was a 10 day effort, with frequent updates from Migs on his progress.
One thing that you can say about the duck, he always bounces back and we are all of course very hopeful that when his health allows that he may play us a Beatles or Gordon Lightfoot tune or several.
So this one is for you. Ok so you’re not beautiful, but you’re ok for a duck. Friends Rain or Shine.
I didn’t want Migs’ post to get lost on another topic and so I have put it here as well :Min

Today is our first birthday as an open blog site (it was a member’s only blog site for four months prior to that), and today we’ll also have our 200,000th hit. We have a habit of reaching milestones on significant days: Our 50,000th hit came the day of the Federal election and the 100,000th hit came on my birthday. You’ve all done us proud.
That’s the good news. Now for the bad.
I’m going to be absent from the Café until early October as I need to focus on a few health issues. The battering I’ve been taking from my lupus over the last couple of weeks tells me that I need to get serious about my treatment of it. This means complete rest (while not at work) and limited exposure to any stress, pressure or demands in all my social environments. Doctor’s orders.
I’ll also be working reduced hours and ironically, will be working on a large project that will demand my full attention while at work for the next few months.
The Café will still stay open as I’m sure the ladies – who have been putting up great topics – may wish to continue to do so. If anyone else would like to try their hand at writing a post please do not hesitate to contact me.
No matter what happens, I’ll be back in October.
Thank you to all.
Min: I should of course make mention of Migs’ incredible passion for Aboriginal issues. Migs speaks fluent Pintinjarra and so as you can imagine, just to learn this language requires the utmost dedication.
