I am too young for this thread also, as I was born in the early 70's.
I grew up in a small country town in Australia, where we only had two TV stations, no McDonalds, Pizza Hut or Hungry Jacks.
If we wanted to call our friends in our own town we only had to dial the last 3 digits of their telephone number. Nobody cared if you didn't have the
latest bike or running shoes. Brand name clothing was unheard of, my mother knitted our jumpers, and cut our hair. Raised our own sheep and chooks,
grew our own veggies.
The times back then seemed less rushed and free of pressure. There were no social pressures of nowdays, but then you didn't have society telling you
continually what is right or wrong.
I liked growing up in those times, and would not have wanted it any other way, as I am sure my kids wouldn't want theirs to change either.
Oh, and as a footnote, I named my son Blade, and he's almost 18, you got a problem with that OP?
