Here’s a picture of me sitting on a rock somewhere in the Australian Outback. I’m posting it here for several reasons.
1. The light is fantastic, and makes me looks pretty.
2. You can actually see the flies buzzing around my head. Seconds after this photo was taken, one of them flew into my mouth. It was maybe the 25th fly I consumed that day. The light does nothing to enhance their beauty. Or their taste. On the other hand, the frosty beverage was cold and refreshing, and just the thing to wash down aggressive insects.
3. This image is now the temporary landing page over at mikeroweworks.com. I’m in the process of revamping the site because experts have determined that the whole experience could be a bit more “user friendly.” I’m all for friendly, so while the actual facelift is underway, I thought this temporary photo might strike a nice balance between “Hey, come on in and have a look around,” with “Why yes, I’m about to swallow another frickin fly.”
Anyway, if you have not yet visited the current mikeroweworks.com, better hurry. The new improved and version will appear in a few weeks, and if you don’t go now you’ll never be able to look at back and recall the days on mikeroweworks.com before things became super friendly. Also of note, the new scholarship fund is now active, and $250,000 has been allocated for qualifying trade school students.

Finally, if you’re ever in Coober Pedy Australia, keep your mouth shut. The flies are serious, and have no respect. Here’s a very brief homage to the little bastards: The Coober Pedy Song
