In my blog list is a blog called OPOBS (or opobs - lower case - to be exact), run by a fellow called MIKE. He's been kind enough to comment a few times, and I've likewise left a few comments on his site. Mike's blog hasn't had any new posts for some months, though one appeared recently to explain his inactivity. Alas, Mike has been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and, unfortunately, nothing can be done as he had a violent reaction to chemotherapy and he's decided to accept whatever time is left to him without trying to prolong it.
It strikes me that Mike might appreciate people visiting his blog and wishing him the best, letting him know that, even though they might not know him, he's in their thoughts and prayers at this trying time. Why not take a moment to leap over to his site (here) and say something nice to a chap who must be feeling pretty low, though I'm sure he's doing his best to keep a stiff upper lip in the best British tradition. Go on, reach out to a stranger who's in a bad spot and let him know you're touched by his plight. (Remember, a stranger's just a friend you do not know.)
