It's finally the last day of 2004. I say that with some desire to see the year end sooner rather than later. All in all it was a good year, but it was also quite an emotional rollercoaster of a year.
This blog has helped me keep track of some of the ups and downs, even if Matthew Vella's Where Are They Now? did quite an OK job in itself as a souvenier of some of things that dominated 2004 for me.
Anyway, here's a partial, most subjective, list of blog entries from 2004:
- Life in Scarborough after leaving New York
- Malta joins the EU
- Souad Massi in Central Park
- Toni Sant's Blog hits the web
- My red bicycle gets a new life
- Atrioventricular Reentrant Tachycardia
- Goodbyes to Mario Ellul, Maggie Borg, Louis Naudi, & Publius Micallef
- MaltaMedia hit by DoS attack
- The sudden demise of John Peel
- The price of war
As for things that happened in Malta during 2004, I believe that the round-up feature from the MaltaMedia Online Network covers most of the memorable moments. Have a look at the final version of 2004: A Year in Review, which was made available to the public earlier today. This year the people who worked with me on the annual round-up feature are (in alphabetical order): Mario Axiaq, Antoine Busuttil, Ruth Davies, Martin Debattista, Joe Meilak, Pierre J. Mejlak, Roseanne Sammut, and Mark Vella Gera. Life is not perfect, but with work companions such as these we can almost turn water into wine online. If you don't believe me just subscribe to the aboutmalta.com newsletter.
Bottom line for the end of 2004: Many thanks for reading my blog...I wish you a very happy new year!
