if you are old enough
« on: June 10, 2009, 11:07:46 PM »
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I'm old enough, but I have dial-up. :shock:
That will soon be remedied though. I'll check it out then. :)

Julie (Peggy Lipton) may have been the first woman I ever had a crush on. Met Clarence Williams III (Linc) on a movie set my Dad was working on years ago, he's still cool and still Linc, in my book.

I had an astronaut figure toy I remember, but wish I still had it today. TV dinners, bahahahaahahahahahaahah! Remember those like yesterday!

This brought back certain memories for me, even though I was born in 64.

Thanks for the rewind Kathy!

Took me back, we were the ist family in our town to get a new princess phone.  My mother worked for the phone company.  It took a little getting used to, our old phone had been one of those wall mounted crank phones with the drycell batteries inside.  Our call was 2 longs and a short, 10 party line, like everybody else we had one woman who would answer everybodies call, hard to keep secrets.
