Do you sometimes find yourself longing for "the good old days"? Do you laugh at yourself for even thinking this because - after all - you're not even 50 yet? And - upon seeing some of the things the kids of today have, or when you see how easy they have it, do you catch yourself thinking out loud "When I was a kid..." only to cover your mouth in horror as you realize that you sound just like your parents? Do you feel a jolt of...you're not sure what...when you realize that you're thinking of the 70's? How good things were in the 70's?

OK - so this is what happened. Awhile back, I noticed how many times my friends and I kept talking about how things were different when we were kids. I know, I know - this is something that we all grew up with...our parents said this to us all the time. We've all heard the stories of how they trudged uphill through endless snow drifts, barefoot, to and from school; how they can remember the very first TVs they ever saw; how they all made do with a lot less than we have today.
