    I remember staying up watching tv

    until midnight, then, the national anthem would play, and then - shhhhhhh (TV snow/white noise until morning). It was so great when MTV first allowed us to watch videos into the wee hours of the morning!

    Does anyone remember the last days

    before carseat laws (when even passenger seat belts were optional), when bullying was just a rite of passage & kids weren't jacked up on Ritalin?

    Hot summers. Well. 76 was hot.

    Sat in the back of my parents' Vauxhall Viva- in shorts- legs burning to a frazzle on the vinyl seats. Outside a pub. For hours. Furnished with the occasional bottled coke (waxed paper straw, natch) and packet of Golden Wonder... ...and then being driven home, erratically, in...

    Good Times ...

    I turned 20 in the autumn of 1989, so that means I was a kid for the entire '70s and all my teenage years were in the '80s.  I remember the '80s better than the '70s, needless to say, but I'm glad I was there for both decades all the same.
