Fads of the 80's

I realized that one of my children was a child of the 80's and I found this list of fads during that time. I'm afraid to say that I rememeber all of these when she was growing up and enjoyed many of them as much as she did.
  1. Baby On Board Signs
  2. Boom Boxes
  3. Rubik Cube
  4. Skateboarding
  5. Trivial Pursuit Game
  6. Video Arcades
  7. Wrestling - Although it has made a comeback in recent years, nothing even compares with the classic years of the WWF, and the NWA.
  8. Break Dancing
  9. Cabbage Patch Dolls
  10. Roller Skating

I'm really not sure if we will even remember what the kids of today are into. Seems like kids are so much older now than they were when my kids were growing up. Kids just aren't children anymore. We are trying to turn them into little adults. Scary!!!

Children in the Seventies

You know you were a kid in the 70's if:

  • You had homemade ribbon barrettes in every imaginable color.
  • You know who Strawberry Shortcake is, as well as her friends, Blueberry Muffin and Huckleberry Pie.
  • You completely wore out your Grease, Saturday Night Fever, and Famesoundtrack record album.
  • You made Shrinky-Dinks and put iron-on kittens on your t-shirts!
  • You thought Olivia Newton John's song "Physical" was about aerobics. (*It wasn't???)

Boy times were really easy back then and kids were a whole lot easier to please.

Very Excited

There was a huge thing that happened at my house on Friday night. I ordered memory for my computer and after two weeks, it finally arrived. I asked a few computer technicians and also googled on the internet about how to actually do this. I was really afraid that I was going to mess things up and have to get someone to come out and fix my mistake. Good news! I actually took the cover off and installed 2 Gigs of memory to my computer. I went from snail action to lightning speed in less than an hour. Boy was I relieved that it went so smooth. I think I should update my resume on this one. LOL..............

My daughter said she is having trouble posting to my blog. She said word verification keeps locking up. I can't find where I have this feature so I can't turn off. Any suggestions???

My husband sent me an email today that he knew was going to take my breath away. He sent me a video from youtube of a little six year old girl that has a beautiful voice. I think she is probably about 8 now because this was a few years back. She is singing one of my favorite songs, "Over The Rainbow". I am going to try and link it to my blog so you can listen. It is unbelievable that God could make something so beautiful in a world that is so bad.

YouTube - Connie Talbot - Over The Rainbow (BGT Final)

Hope the link is there and hope you enjoy.
