Regarding the good old days, there seems to be a "20 years in the past" idea that things were seemingly always better than the given year.



For example, when I took on a new job in year 1976, there was a man who was complaining the horrible work ethic pervading the company in 1976. He literally always said, "It's not like it was 20 years ago (then in the 1950's)."



I distinctly recall after having been a the company for two months (in July of 1976) how I am going to mark this day, and see if "these" will be the good ol' days in the mid 1990's.



Surely they seemed to be that way! In the 1990's, everybody at work was complaining about profits, and that it wasn't like the '70's when companies had a lot more money to spend!



Ironically, or perhaps not so ironically, people tend to be now talking about how good everything was back in the 1990's!



Mark my word: In the 2030's, people will look back at the 2010's and reminisce how well it was!!!



It's human nature, I suppose, to "forget" the terrible times of the previous 20 year decade and remember only the good times.



Enough of my rambling,



Cheers,
