You're getting old

Yes I remember US troops capturing the Marshall islands well. Anyway I really got depressed reading the new phone thread and not one post mentioned whether they actually made phone calls.

meh!

 

Betamax is still considered better than VHS (used widely until digital in TV stuff)

 

eight track was great.

 

my first telly was black and white with a loop ariel and dial to tune it in.

 

I had a tape to tape recorder/player with the big reels.

 

Stuff was never broken it just needed to be fixed coz you could fix it.

 

And yes knocker I still use a phone as a phone (added extras come in handy though).

The release of the Beatles first album "Please Please me" (22/03/63) was closer to my birth date than today, apparently.

Or from a weather perspective, the big freeze of '63.

Saying that, I don't feel old, because I'm not - I'm 26!

I consider that those of us born during WWII were the lucky ones - our lives span the times of old fashioned values to this modern age with technical and medical advances (which no doubt kept me alive) we never dreamed of. Although it was not easy to find and buy a house, it was a lot easier in 1971 than what it is for the young people these days - at least then we knew who our enemies were which is something which can't be said of today but above all we were able to experience the winters of 1962/63 and 1947 though I don't really remember the latter too much. :)
