Allan Sullivan, who writes the blog Fresh Bilge, aka Seablogger, will retire from full-time blogging for health reasons. I will sorely miss his writing. His blog has been the first stop on my daily web journey these past three years. He occasionally posted a comment here, and he kindly mentioned my blog a few times on his site - a great honour for me because he has a high number of loyal readers. The quality of his blog was amazing, especially when you take into account the illness he has been dealing with. If I could achieve a tenth of what he has done with his blog, I would be justifiably proud of myself.
