Hello, I was in the PNG boarding schools from 1967 to 1973. My name is David Robert Palmer. My user name is my real name, because I am not a hider. I have nothing to be ashamed of, but rather I like the light out in the open, whatever I will find.

Welcome to the forum, sounds like Alcoholics Anonymous. I'm Bemused and I'm an Alco . . .

Personally I like the ability to write under a pseudeynm. I feel more comfortable with this and feel I can express myself more fully. Some people know who I am and that is fine. I spent my years in PNG sitting in classes where others would critisize my views, not because they were wrong, but because of who I was or where I came from. I found one could utter the most incredible rubbish and be believed, you just had to have the authority to get away with it.
Now I might be a bit paranoid, but I'm not that keen on the hierachy of NTM knocking on my door for a session of "Personal Ministry".
Which reminds me, does anyone know where President Obama is at the moment? Not in the White House, he's Downunder (in Australia for those not familiar with the term). We MKs from Downunder know that he has not really come to have a cup of tea with Julia (Australias Prime Minister), he's using this trip as a cover to find us. Yes all those secret service men with the dark sun glasses 8-) are really NTM spies, looking for us. We know to much and they want to ask us a few questions and offer us an incentive to . . .
Hang on there's a couple of blokes at the door, with a violin case . .

Ummmmmm time for my paranoid tablets again. :lol:

Hi David,
Welcome to this discussion.
I was in PNG many of the same years you were, you were in the "old kids" group and I was in the "little kids" group. I am a bit of a nonconformist. You,Tim, and Ladi were good examples of nonconforming. It's amazing how boarding school affected us.

NEWSFLASH

At an emergency meeting of the Downunder MKs, they agreed to generously forgive the U.S. citizen who claimed in the Australian Parliament today that Australia was the first country in the world to give women the vote. It was obviously an oversight, caused by a desperate attempt to kiss up to his very good friends.

President Obama we forgive you.

And just for the record, it was New Zealand that gave women the vote first. A whole nine years before Australia.
:oops:
