There was a time when we left our doors unlocked.
Kids were safe walking to school alone.
We shared the telephone line with several neighbors.
There was no "color" TV.. Just black/white TV.

When you had to hurry home to check your answering machine to see if someone called...afraid to leave the house! Before cell phones!

I have heard there are troubles of more than one kind. Some come from ahead and some come from behind. But I've bought a big bat. I'm all ready you see. Now my troubles are going to have troubles with me!”
Dr. Seuss quote

“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself in any direction you choose. You're on your own.
And you know what you know. You are the guy who'll decide where to go.”

The oil crisis in '73 and carless Sundays. Do those again, so everybody gets out to walk and exercise ...

Everything in moderation, except aikido and yoga. One can't get enough of that.

My first computer programming class in college used a deck writer. PC's were unheard of. We also had an old punch card machine in the classroom basement and we had an assignment to write a few lines on a card.

Gas went over a dollar a gallon. All the gas pumps had to be changed out. CA gave the stations a time frame to change them over. Until then, our local gs taped over the price and used a calculator to figure how much money you owed. Off course, they also had people pumping gas too.
