    In my day I was optimistic that the world would be a better place now.

    20 years ago we had Bob Hope, Johnny Cash and Steve Jobs. Now we have no hope, no cash and no jobs. Please don't tell me something happened to Kevin Bacon.

    Steve Jobs was a nice boy in turtlenecks.

    In one sense, I'm not sure I'd want to know much about that.

    Sadly I've never been Gaga about her.

    In my day you had cars that you could easily maintain yourself. No electonics, a Carburettor (SP?) and points (remember the fun you could have getting the advance/****** just right?) for ignition.

    In my day you could buy a starter auto for less than $500 and a just get by on for less that $100. Brand spanking new show off autos were around five grand.

    In my day, there were no VCRs, only Black & White TV (with 3 channels in the UK).

    It
    I too remember black and white tv with 2 local channels and sometimes we’d get lucky and get a signal or two from over the hill. Then “color overlay “ came out and we’d see blue hair and green teeth. (USA)

    In my day organic meant you grew it yourself in the back yard, not twice the price in a special section of the market.

    In my day, gardening wasn't a hobby, it was a necessity. So was picking fruit when in season. The women folk canned everything they could. Home made bread was baked. Dinning out was never an option.

    Hey, I still make our bread, shop bread is too soft & fluffy - apart from the Polish store's bread.

    We have a bakery around here that makes an unseeded rye bread with a crust that you could break a tooth on. :) :thumbsupdroid:

    I love good bread. My mother baked sour dough bread and the neighbor lady baked french bread. They swapped loafs weekly so we had a variety. :) Both breads were excellent. I was gifted a bit of sour dough starter from a lady years ago and tried my hand at duplicating my mother's bread. No such luck. :( She put her self through school by working in a small town bakery. She had the touch.

    I could go with some heavy crust rye bread... sounds great!

    I remember baking my breads and other goods along with canning the fruits from the yard.
