Neither rain, nor sleet, nor snow, nor hail will stop the Pineapple Post getting through.
(Lack of power, computer meltdown and other things more relevant to Honiara are a different matter.)
Like many of you, I have found the wonderful work that Jackie has done over the past couple of years with Pineapple Post very useful in coming to terms with life in Honiara. I thought it would be a great loss to see it disappear. Jackie has kindly deputized me to attempt to carry on her work and maintain Pineapple Post’s blog, emails and Facebook presence. Even in spite of my wayward spelling and grammar and fumbling typing skills. Apologies in advance.
So who’s the new editor?
I’m Gerald Soworka, artist (http://canetoadhunter.wix.com/canetoadhunter) and numbawan haus meri to my workaholic wife. In a past life as a massage therapist I was editor and communications person for the national association. When I was President of the North Queensland Conservation Council I also managed our digital information and propaganda wing.
And now that I am a full-time bon vivant in Honiara I hope you will help me to collect and share all the fascinating bits and pieces of life in Solomon Islands.
One thing I would really like to achieve is to build up a calendar of all the regular cultural events, festivals, times to best view fauna and flora etc that happen around the islands. So if you have any knowledge or contacts with regard to these things, let us know. You can contact Pineapple Post by replying to this email or firstname.lastname@example.org
And, lastly, if you see me about town please introduce yourself. I’m a very shy little wallflower and need to connect more with the world outside the studio.
Thanks Jackie for creating such a wonderful resource for us all here. I hope I can do it justice during this next year or so.
