DID YOU EVER HAVE TO SAY "HELLO" BEFORE YOU KNEW WHO WAS CALLING?

IS THIS A FAMILIAR SCENE?

WHAT'S THE CONNECTION BETWEEN THESE  TWO OBJECTS?

Image

HAVE YOU EVER USED THIS?

Image

HAVE YOU EVER SEEN OR USED ONE OF THESE?

Image

DO YOU RECOGNIZE WHO THIS IS?

Image

DO YOU KNOW HOW TO PLAY WITH THESE?

Image

DO YOU KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH THESE?

Image

DID YOU EVER RIDE ONE OF THESE???

DID YOU KNOW...  
Those who were born in the 30’s to the 60’s are the last generations who played in the street.  During our childhood we “walked” over a mile a day when we played & played “hide & seek” outside at night with no worries or fear of anything bad happening to us.  
 
We are the first generation who played video games and the last to record songs off the radio onto a cassette tape.  We learned how to program a VCR before anyone else, we were the first to play from Atari to Nintendo…We are the generation of Tom & Jerry, Looney Toons, & Captain Kangaroo. We traveled in cars without seat belts or air bags, lived without cell phones and caller ID.  We did not have fax machines, flat screens, surround sound, I-pods, Facebook, Twitter, computers or the internet, and through it all we had a great time.

Dittos

Kids today don’t even know what they’re missing with their fancy copy machines and computers. Students of a bygone era can recall the bluish-purple print and unforgettable aroma of a freshly printed page of ditto paper. Once part of the daily scholastic routine, technology would eventually lead to the extinction of these fondly remembered machines and the paper they produced.

There was no ink used in the ditto process, which involved elusive ‘master copies’ that the teacher would keep filed away, far away from the reaching hands of students. The master was either typed on, drawn on, or written upon, and a second sheet was coated with a layer of wax that was impregnated with one of a variety of colors, usually a deep purple since that particular pigment was the cheapest, durable and had contrast with the paper.

As the paper was hand-cranked through the bulky printer, a pungent-smelling clear solvent was spread across each sheet by an absorbent wick. When the paper came in contact with the waxed original, it would take just enough of the pigment away to print the image on the sheet as it passed under.



my kindergarten teacher used one of these to put a check mark on the coloring pages we handed in. when she gave them back every one of us put them
right next to our noses and sniffed. talk about unforgettable aroma.....:acid

we "foreigners" also drive on the opposite side of the road. Image

reynolds wrap is a brand of aluminum foil which we had to wrap on our tv antennas to get a better picture (less snow like in the picture)    before cable tv

Image  Image


and the next one is popcorn - a brand called jiffy pop. it came in a package and looked like a fry pan. inside were the kernels and the butter. you would simply heat the package and the popcorn would pop and expand the foil....which you opened when it was done and enjoyed it.

Lol, I still remember going to the cinema to see these movies:





Anyone remember when you went to the cinema and there was an interval in the middle, where the lights came on and ladies came round with snacks you could buy?

This year, I'm going to join our American cousins and celebrate Thanksgiving the old fashioned way. By which I mean I'm going to invite all my neighbours round for an enormous feast, kill them all and then take their land.

my best friend and i saw this movie back in 1980 - it was rated 'R' (we were both 15). my friends mom dropped us off the the movies under the impression we were gonna see the empire strikes back. we found two adults standing in line and we asked them if we gave them our money would they by two tickets for us (we bought them a drink as a thank you). one of favorite memories. :angel2
