Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

01/08/2006: I have REALLY screwed up.....

As of late, owing to the press of both work related business and Real Life™ issues, and the fact that updates to the membership of the Rocky Top Brigade are passed on via the blog page linked there, and not via a mail list (as per the "good old days"), I never noticed this sad news before today.

According to the RTB page, Memphis blogger (proprietor of Mama said there'd be days like this) "CG" passed away of cancer last month (the post announcing this is dated December 16, so I assume that the sad event happened a day or few before that date). Those of you who might have read CG's blog knew that he'd had a colonoscopy and follow-up exploratory surgery last October or so, which disclosed the existence of a large (larger than expected) pre-cancerous mass in his colon. Unfortunately, that was the last post on CG's blog, and CG's widow has been unable to post on his blog to announce the sad news herself.

Apparently, though, no other Memphis bloggers check the RTB webpage regularly, either, because I've not noticed any mention of this before now, and I've caught up with my rounds of all the Memphis bloggers I read regularly.

Anyway, for those of you interested, I pass on this information from the RTB site:

If anyone wants to pass on a personal message to his wife, contact myself (Barry - innofthelasthomeinsolace@yahoo.com) or Cathy (cathy@domesticpsychology.com) for her email. I hesitate to post it out live here, for fear of spamming.
One of the greatest regrets in my life is that I never got to meet CG in person before his passing; he and I traded emails a couple times, and he left the occasional comment on DBV, but he never made it to a Bloggers' Bash, alas. His family and close friends all have my deepest sympathies.
