Two developments

The first is that this blog is 5 years old.

It started out as brief and humorous reflection on the bible. I got bored at leviticus though I hope to someday continue with that line.

I have written on array of topics. Freewill, god, Jesus, refugees, posted photos of my travels or bike rides, movies and songs I like, written about my late mother and many more. 

I have benefited from comments and insights from a diverse group of people whom I cannot name all at this point but will name a few whose presence has been enduring.

But before I name the living, 2 fellows whose memories still live on; myatheistlife a brilliant fellow and Arch, the bird. I knew him before I started this blog and I am glad I knew him.

Pink who thinks I am sending this using drums, jz my friend who got lost in Brazil and decided to stay on, Ark the stone god from down south, shelldigger friend who we have had many a discussion, tildeb who we have had heated discussions on matters war, sb, Nan, Ruth,  RS,  Violet, Charity, Carmen,  my nude friend who inspires my nudist dreams, Brian, Bob V, Jeff the resident satirist, Victoria our walking reserviour of information, Tish, Paulette who has asked very challenging questions,  Peter, Esme, Swarn, and many more I am unable to name who we have interacted with here and elsewhere. I sincerely thank you. You severally and individually have built this blog to what it is.

There have also been new followers whose presence is as valued as those named above.  Again thank you. 

Luckily there have been few assholes. 

The second development is we have a plebiscite in 15 days. My posting here maybe intermittent as I am busy tweeting ๐Ÿ™‚ but I will continue to visit your blogs and say my 2cts or if I can’t afford 1ct. 

That marks the end of this broadcast. May golden boot kick you and keep you alert.

  1. Happy 5th anniversary! You’ve a very informative and enlightening blog. I’ll always remember what JFK once said of plebiscites: “DAMMIT! I just stepped on a plebiscite with my bare feet! Now I’ll have to have the bloody thing surgically removed! When I find out who left it on the ground here, I’m gonna murder-ate ’em! AAH, WOO! WOO! WOO! WOO!”

    “If you did not find anything interesting here today, I hope it will at least make you smile”.
    It is in that spirit that a ‘random’ South African blogger ends her postings. Well said, she always makes me smile indeed.
    Likewise, one of the reasons I enjoy your blog makagutu, is that your articles always make me think.
    Thank you for that, and my best wishes for the following 260 weeks!

    I’m going to echo many people here and thank you for providing us some always thoughtful topics. I feel this is one of the “nicer” (although still appropriately acerbic) communities in the skeptic-o-sphere!

    Cheers and to another 5 years (or at least until we all bore you)! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hey! I saw my handle in there ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

    It has been my pleasure to know the Mak and his blog. Many a new friend I have met here. Many a great article read here, and literally thousands of great comments by the folks who frequent. It is surely us who should be thanking you.

    Here is to another 5 years! May we all be healthy and as ornery when it gets here. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Sorry I’ve been late to the party, been incredibly busy, incredibly tired, and awfully lazy about blogging. I expect to get back in the groove soon. Anyone know how dust off the cobwebs of your own blog? ๐Ÿ˜œ

      I have a brush that removes cobwebs from blogs. I hire it for a few dollars an hour.

      It has been my pleasure to know you too, on the blog and off as well. A fine man, I must add.
