    Remember being a kid? this should help!!

    I don,t know if some of you guys can relate to this because of age/growing up in different locations but anyone from the UK should.

Just to go back and say, Yeah, I remember that! Remember when.... Decisions were made by going "Eeny- meeny-miney-mo." "Race issue" meant arguing about who ran the fastest. Money issues were handled by whoever was the banker in "Monopoly".
    >>The worst thing you could catch from the opposite sex was germs. And the worst thing in your day was having to sit next to one.
    >>It was unbelievable that British Bulldog wasn't an Olympic event. Having a weapon in school, meant being caught with a catapult.
    >>Nobody was prettier than Mum. Scrapes and bruises were kissed and made better. Taking drugs meant orange-flavoured chewable aspirin.
    >>Ice cream was considered a basic food group. Getting a foot of snow was a dream come true Older siblings were the worst tormentors, but also the fiercest protectors.

    Life was so simple when you were a kid!!

    Talking Great POST BB...just a couple of things though...

    When nobody owned a pure-bred dog.

    How do we have pure bred dogs now then?

    > >When 25p was a decent allowance.


    Ahhhh....25 pence, that was the day....


    > >When you'd reach into a muddy gutter for a penny. When nearly everyone's mum was at home when the kids got there.

    I'm confused, is this ONE of those tidbit's together?? Or seperate?

    I remember Atari, Intellivision and Colecovision.

    I remember The Love Boat, The Dukes of Hazzard, The Facts of Life, Differen't Strokes, Happy Days, Laverne and Shirly, Mork and Mindy, The Muppets and Donnie and Marie.

    I remember watching the U.S.A. Mens Olympic Ice Hockey team winning a Gold Medal in Lake Placid in 1980 with a bunch of University Hockey players.

    I remember seeing "Star Wars" in the theatre (5 times).

    I remember Big Macs in the old fashioned non-biodegradable styrofoam containers.

    I remember The "A" Team (I'm sure Excess does as well), CHiPs, TJ Hooker, Dynasty, Dallas, Hawaii 5 - O, Emergency and The Six Million Dollar Man.

    The Incrediable Hulk and hiding behind the sofa when he changed and Dr Who , Metal Mickey and the weird space things from Smash Mash advert.

    Exploding candy where you would empty a whole packet in your mouth and see if you could keep your mouth shut and hot jawbreakers that you could buy a pack of 3 for 10p and you had to eat all 3 within 20mins!

    Those were the days !!
