Some of you regular readers of thegrambler.com will be aware of the significance of today's (Saturday) date, the 29th of August; it is two years since Stewart David Smith, the originator of this blog, died.
I felt that it was not appropriate to write the usual nonsense this week. So, no betting or teasers this week. Normal service will be resumed next week. I also felt that it would be wrong to ask friends and family to again give their thoughts; that was last year's anniversary blog.
So this year, I want you all to refer to some older editions; those penned by Stewart in the early days of the blog; those written after he knew that he would not survive long and some of those written in his memory.
I also want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support and hope that you will continue to enjoy my (g)ramblings for a long time to come.
At the end of this post (as with all posts) there is a chance for you to leave a comment. Please, this week especially, take the time to leave a message giving your thoughts on Stewart, on bowel cancer or even your views on the blog itself.Some of those blogs worth a read? How about...

So, a bit of a mixed bag for you to read in there. A completely different thegrambler.com this week, I admit. I hope you appreciate this little diversion from the norm.
