I was born in 1970, my mother remembered it distinctly being the first sunday of July, probably a mistake at the hospital but My birth certificate
has me born on the 6th which when I checked was on a monday.
I remember the Kennedy motorcade from old TV clip's of his assassination as I grew up, there were the driver, a us secret service agent in the front
and Kennedy and his wife, they had secret service people in the car in front and in the car in back but my memory of that is vague and I did not live
through his assassination.
Back in the 1970's when I was a kid up to about 89 the sky was BLUE not a bluish greyish greenish kind of indescribably colour and Sky blue paint was
always light BLUE, the Sun had a yellowish colour that gave a golden tint on sunny day's not the white thing we have now.
For me the biggest single shock to my reality was a Change in the Bible itself, old testament jacob's vision of god had a description of what he saw
and spoke of god standing above heaven before and amidst his throne which was like a sapphire and an emerald, he had a crown like a rainbow but
otherwise was like the description from the book of revelation.
The book of revelation had a passage about a being like unto the son of man whom came down from heaven and overcame the beast and the kingdom of the
beast, like the beast had the number six threescore and six which was called the number of the beast which was A man the being that overcame him and
his kingdom had a number which was Seven Threescore and Seven which was THE number of man.
Tefal Kettle's, Tetrapack juice carton's and dripless spout's, back in the late seventy's early eighty's a guy invented a simple dripless spout that
worked by angling the flow of the water with a small curved ridge that could be applied to almost any spout design, Tefal and Tetrapack both licenced
it and it was on all Tefal Kettle's and most Tetrapack's made not under licence but by the Tetra pack company themeselves, I noticed also the surface
tension and cohesion of water seem's slightly different.
Many, many other thing's that made me think that perhaps I was sliding between dimension's or had been displaced to a similar but inferior copy of my
But to the more simple meaning of what you are saying, the people of your generation and the generation before it were more patriotic, more christian
and life was basically better in many western country's than it is today, there were more opportunity's for young men and the future looked very rosy
and bright other than the looming constant threat of the cold war and fear of a nuclear holocaust.
Now the future is filled with gloom, terrorist's are murdering like crazy, the borders of our nation's are non existant and our kid's have very few
or even no real prospect's, corporate capitalism is run away destroying everything and taking our job's to other nation's leaving our kid's high and
dry and corporations owned government's and corrupt politician's are destroying people's civil liberty's, our culture's and our moral and patriotic
base as well as our religion's in there drive for a one world market and a corporate hegemony.
