A good book? You just found it here
On meeting an ex-student after 40 years

And a happy new year….

Magpie & Olive Tree Artists Garden

My own resolution for 2009 is to stop making new year’s resolutions and so spare myself the ignominy of falling at the first hurdle each year.

If you’re statistically minded, PNG ATTITUDE published 399 stories in 2008, an average of more than one a day. There were also 214 comments from readers. They make for a lot of interesting reading. The ATTITUDE gets well over 100 visitors a day and, as far as I’m concerned, it's a labour of love and it’s here to stay.

In 2008 we featured an array of stories about Papua New Guinea and about people associated with PNG. We covered the lives and deaths of many people who made a great contribution to that country, and many more who continue to contribute still. We brought to you detailed coverage of a PNG Association election, the first in its 58-year history, eliciting a hysterical attack on me, which in turn drew an angry response from our usually benign readership. We’ve dealt with the more interesting news out of PNG and the big issues affecting Australia’s relationship with that country. We’ve featured a host of new books related to PNG and the art of people associated with PNG. And much, much more.

Let’s hope 2009 is just as enthralling.
