Sage himself had picked up a spate of blogging awards recently, partly due to the concerted efforts of an Anglo-Mauritian guy in London with a virtual green-and-brown owl and a news blog or something along those lines.

PETITE MAGIQUE AWARD GIVEAWAY: ….or “Hallelujah, it’s raining awards”

In 1987, the TV weather forecaster Michael Fish, a normally well-regarded personality on British screens until recently, famously failed to warn viewers of a massive hurricane which caused million of pounds of damage when it did hit our shores.
