You have entered a part of my website that is near and dear to me, --the
era of my youth... Come back to the day before cell phones, pagers**,
CD's, email or the internet, how'd we ever survive?
Well, somehow we did manage to survive and we obviously didn't need
those things that today we feel we can't live without.
If it were at all possible, I am quite sure that the majority of us that
came out of the 70's --would gladly jump into a time machine and transport
back into time...
Enjoy the ride and hopefully you'll find a bit of your own life mixed in
there with mine.
**Times have changed:
The original content on this page is very dated. When I wrote it back
in 1997, a lot of people still had "pagers." We don't use those anymore,
our cell phones have become "all in one" units; phone, pager, music player,
text messager, email, picture sender, watch movies on it, etc.
When I wrote this page, no one had yet heard of MP3's, the "music" of the
web was more like elevator "muzak", they were called "midi's" (.mid=low
kb files of electronic music created on keyboards plugged into a pc. You
had to be a musician to make a midi.).
Shockingly --DVD's were just coming out. No Ipods, no Itunes, pre-Napster,
even! (Napster was started in 1999.) If you're 15 years old and reading this...
you probably think the internet and all the items listed above have been
around "forever". For us "old folks" who were teenagers in the 70's, ten
years ago was the blink of an eye.
I can't hardly believe this year, 2007, my site will be ten years old. I
wonder what life will be like in 10 more years... I wonder if web sites will
still be relevant? Maybe we'll just do "mind transfers". ;) One thing
is for sure, the constant is change.
