party lines, when the class was called "typing" not "keyboarding", when women wore "girdles", not "shapewear", when girls had to wear dresses to school, when no one had heard of bike helmets, standing up in the front seat beside my dad as he drove and no one called the police. Oh, and METAL tipped lawn darts.

When getting married actually meant something.

"Rather train yourself for godliness; for while bodily training is of some value, godliness is of value in every way, as it holds promise for the present life and also for the life to come" (1Timothy�4:7-8)

"Jesus answered, 'The most important [commandment] is, 'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength'" (Mark 12:29-30).
