My wife Luella. I need her to tell me how to hold a dinner party. Paul Keating, the last Australian Prime Minister to have any vision for our country; Lt Col. Ralph Honner, the WA leader of the part-time soldiers who delayed the Japanese advance on Port Moresby; Harry Peake, my ‘education’ lecturer in Sydney, who taught us (in 1962) that kids learn by communicating; Mozart, as long as he played some of his beautiful piano music after I’d given him a good feed.
AQyou go (and why)?

Neil Diamond (emotion-filled music), Willie Nelson (simple storytelling) and Kris Kristofferson (musical poems of life).
