I remember it too well, what a great time, oh to be that young again. Coming home after school and immediately watching American Bandstand, and thinking that those teenagers were so old. The age of innocense and energy. Thanks for sharing the blast from the past. Do you remember the tubes in the television, when ours would stop working, my father had a box behind the TV and would just exchange the glass tubes. I also remember saying that there was nothing to watch on TV because there were times that only a test pattern was on during the day.

Gee I have to go along with all of that Bren and more, just think if we were all travelling on push bikes and horse and buggies etc. we wouldn't need the wretched nuclear power and oil and such and the world would be such a wonderful peaceful place to live in. No ozone layer worries either, no more worrying about what the world would be like for our future generations.
Progress is a wonderful thing in many ways but look at the price we will eventually pay, IS IT WORTH IT?
Our children probably would never appreciate what we had back then because they know no different, but what lies ahead is not a pretty picture either.

You are right K/C we may have a lot of modern technology and better health care etc. so we can live longer, but what for? I for one don't like the way the world is going, I hate to think where it is going to end up. I could go on here for ages but it is depressing to say the least, I would much rather just remember the good things and try to put the bad where it belongs because it just gets worse when I think of the price we are all paying just to keep the freedom we are so lucky to have.
