    1982 was the year and I'm proud of it.

    I grew up watching the smurfs, she-ra, he-man, the flintstones, the jetsons, saved by the bell, full house, and punky brewster. I have watched beaches, dirty dancing, pretty woman, ferris bueller's day off, sixteen candles, weird science, and the breakfast club so many times i...

    I Remember the 80's..unfortunately

    Born in 1977 I remember quite a bit of the 80s.  The hair, the Fashion, and the music..  Not the best time in History for any of that.  The 80s did however bring us some great entertainers like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna (who admittedly I'm not particularly fond of...

    New Under The Sun In 81.

    1981.  Reagan was sworn in to office, the DeLorean made it''s debut, Walter Cronkite retired, and I was born.   You know, every now and then I think, maybe I could have been born a bit later, or earlier, but all in all, I'm pretty happy to have been born in 1981...

    1980 to Be Exact

    The 80's, to me anyway, for the most part, was a blurr. That is of course, until 1988. One may ask, 1988 Vanessa, why 1988? To which I answer, oh, I don't know. Could it be the Democratic representative for the presidential election with the funny last name, what was it again...

    Lucky Man

     ..So here we are mingling about, soul searching, game playing, downloading, uploading, and defragmenting ourselves with computers. I cannot help but remember the 80's and where I was when it all started to come together. I was about five when a neighborhood friend...
