I loved the 70s because Saturday morning cartoons were such a big deal. Now days kids have several different places to watch toons 24 hours a day but back then there was a great anticipation for Saturday. There are obviously too many to name but some of my favorites were Wacky Races, Penelope Pitstop, Josie and the Pussycats, Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids and I think my all-time favorite was the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show because it ...

Children of the 70s, <BR> <BR> How do you listen to music today? <BR> <BR> I think about this frequently for myself. <BR> <BR> Nowadays I find myself going back and listening to 70s music that I ignored back then. For example, back then I ignored albums by Carole King other than "Tapestry", because Tapestry was so much better. But now I find myself "rediscovering" such "lost classics" as her earlier two albums. There are some great songs on there! The same applies to lesser known albums b...

I am so excited and happy...I actually cried as I drove home from Curves!!!! Wed, 10 Dec 2008 10:43:41 EST What's GREAT about having grown up in the 70s? Seriously, what do you think are the advantages about having grown up in the 70s. I ask in the spirit of us taking pride in our generation, not in the spirit of being superior or anything. So, what are the positives. (Let's save negatives for another thread.) <BR> <BR> Below some of my thoughts: <BR> <BR> - Growing up in the 70s, I got to play outside freely without the hyper-caution and fear for our safety that children experience nowadays. <BR> <BR> - We're young enough to be relatively ... Fri, 5 Dec 2008 07:29:48 EST 70's products I miss! Body On Tap Shampoo. You can get it from the Vermont Trading Company but its kind of expensive and its really not exactly like the original. The shampoo is thinner and the scent isn't quite the same. <BR> <BR> <BR> Tickle Deodorant. The first deodorant I ever used. <BR> <BR> Psssssst. This was a "dry shampoo" for when you didn't have time to wash your hair. <BR> <BR> Loves Baby Soft. Its still around, but its made by a different company now. Back in the 70's I had EVERY Loves Baby Soft pr...

Sat, 1 Nov 2008 19:59:02 EST My kid's years in the 70's. Hello I'm Esther. I was a middle and high school student in those years. They weren't the happiest of years for me. I did have some good memories because of my adoptive parents and close friends. My favorite song was "Motorcycle Mama".

If you could be someone from the '70's, who would you be? <BR> <BR> I just heard a Melanie song on Boomer Radio and I thought, "That's who I'd want to be from the '70's era... She was a singer/songwriter/musician that I admired for her uniqueness and creativity. At times her music was edgy, mysterious and idealistic; at other times it was light-hearted and silly (unless there were hidden metaphors in "I've got a brand new bicycle"... there probably were, I've always been too lazy or dense to... Fri, 22 Aug 2008 11:28:47 EST Now and Then Hey you guys-I was wondering if anyone would be game to post a picture of you in the 70's, like a now/then photo essay.

Remember Freddie the Flute on Puffinstuff? My Mom would put me down for a nap when I was 4 or 5 and turn Lidsville on and tell me I couldn't watch it! Irksome rules parents sometimes have. Lidsville, if I recall, was this wacky show where everyone wore a different hat. I am hoping someone else here remembers these shows. The biggest threat they could think to scare kids with on Puffinstuff was the possibility of making Freddie the Fl... Sat, 19 Jul 2008 13:52:33 EST Brady Bunch!!

It was on PBS and was right after Sesame Street if I remember. It had a very young Morgan Freeman on it. I remember the on opening credits you would always hear someone yelling... "HEY YOU GUYYYYYYS!" Fri, 11 Jul 2008 20:04:23 EST Help ! What was the name of this show? OK, granted I'm not going to give you very many good clues but I've wanted to know the name of this show for a long time and now that I've joined this team, I figured SOMEBODY here would have to know. <BR> <BR> It was in the early 70's I think. They were claymation type people. The stories seemed to center around the ocean because I remember laughing at the jerky way they would swim through the water with their flippers. It seems like the characters had big heads that were out of proporti... Fri, 11 Jul 2008 11:49:01 EST Felix the Cat I know this show was from way before the 70s, but it was in the 70s that most of us watched it.

I just started SP a week ago and already can feel it working. <BR> <BR> I love the 70s, the music, the TV, even the clothes. The one thing I don't like about the 70s is my weight.

So here are some things I haven't thought about in ages that have popped back into my brain. Perhaps you can add to the list: <BR> <BR> *Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman - just strange! <BR> *Pop Rocks - candy that explodes in your mouth.

Tue, 8 Jul 2008 22:34:06 EST Donny and Marie I'm a little bit country, and I'm a little bit rock n' roll. <BR> <BR> I had the biggest crush on Donny for years. I was so mad when he got married.

Well, we have to do something about that right this second! <BR> <BR> My earliest memory of the PF is when I was still living in St. Louis, so I couldn't have been more than 8 years old.

Everything was red, white and blue. Share your favorite memories of the celebrations (fireworks??) and of the clothes that were inspired. My favorite outfit at the time were white jeans with blue and red stars and a t-shirt that had vertical red and white stripes at the bottom with a blue upper half and a big gold star. I looked hot!

Wed, 9 Apr 2008 09:32:51 EST Christmas Morning <em>233</em> <em>263</em> <em>113</em> <em>115</em> <em>194</em> <BR> Does anyone remember the magic of Christmas in the 70's when we were young? Reminisce about what you asked for, what you got. Any family traditions, anything about Christmas. <BR> <BR> As for me Christmas was always so magical. We didn't have a fireplace when I was young, later we added a family room, so we had a fireplace to hang our stockings and for Santa to make an easier entrance. Before that he had to come thro... Mon, 7 Apr 2008 20:27:34 EST Hope Chests Giff suggested that I start a topic on Hope Chests since I had mentioned having one in the 70's. So lets talk about where you got your hope chests and what you put in it, or any other interesting stories you may have about your hope chest. <BR> <BR> Mine was a handmedown from a aunt who did not have daughters of her own.

My spring flowers are coming up, the robins have their nests ready for babies, most of my yard birds are back. Kids were all over the neighborhood, folks of all ages were out walking. Talked to my neighbors, waved to kids and friends going by. <BR> I don't know about everyone else but my body moves better when it's warm. My hope comes back in the spring, summer and fall. In...

Tue, 1 Apr 2008 12:29:24 EST Sports and Athletes I just saw a story the other day on Nadia Cominiche (sp?) the olympic gymnast and it made me think of athletes growing up. I have always been a huge olympics fan and I loved Mark Spitz-the swimmer. I thought he was so awesome. <BR> I also remember the Denver Broncos and their ugly orange and blue striped socks lol! Mon, 31 Mar 2008 14:18:00 EST get smart /the show I thought that special agent 86 was very funny...quite the appropriate show about secret agents,in a time when the whole world was paranoid of each others technology,and secret projects....and the bumbling 86,with his side kick agent 99,battling the evil organization KAOS.which was depicted as a Russian underworld spy organization, just plain had to be there to really understand.I heard that it was going to be a new movie.....I'll go see it,just to see if it stood u... Sat, 29 Mar 2008 03:10:26 EST 70's Restaurants I was thinking today about the "Magic Pan" It was all the rage when I was in college (76-80) They served Crepe's every imaginable way. I loved the place, but there are none around me anymore, and I wonder if they went out of business. <BR> <BR> There was also a resaurant called "Jack's or Better" They served peanuts and you threw the shells on the floor. The whole floor crunched with peanut shells when you walked. It was really a good place to eat. But I haven't seen any of them around eithe... Thu, 27 Mar 2008 20:00:15 EST Another newbie, Hello! Hi everyone, I saw this team and thought it looked like a lot of fun! My name is Sandy and I'm from a small town in WV. I'm 46 and spent a lot of my time TRYING to grow up in the 70's! LOL! I am looking forward to chatting with all of you. <BR> <em>213</em> Thu, 27 Mar 2008 18:57:50 EST Hiya! I'm new in here! I found this team through Terri's (TARTZ66) profile page. I grew up in the 70s and looked around here and it looks fun! Thu, 27 Mar 2008 10:52:42 EST Wierd Al Yankovic Anybody remember Weird Al Yankovic? I believe his first songs were in the 70's. My bologna was one. Something like that. Wed, 26 Mar 2008 18:24:48 EST HI Hi Everyone, <BR> Yes I grew up too in the 70's. Some people might think the 60's was the era to grow up in but I think the 70's had a lot more going on. The music and the concerts were/are great. My ipod is mostly 70's music, my husband prefers 60's. But he grew up in the 60's which he doesn't remember.LOL <BR> Just wanted to say "Hi" <BR> Pam Wed, 26 Mar 2008 11:55:51 EST First Car Although I did not get it until my senior year(1983), my first car was my uncle's '76 yellow Chevy Monte Carlo (what a gas hog!). <BR> <BR> <em>226</em> Wed, 26 Mar 2008 10:33:46 EST The Waltons Did your family not all sit around and watch the Waltons? Mine did, even my dad. We loved the early episodes. <BR> <BR> When we'd go camping, before everyone went to sleep we'd do the G'Night John Boy thing from our beds ...and if you didn't speak up you'd hear it from someone. Kind of like a bed check for mom. Tue, 25 Mar 2008 23:52:33 EST DISCO SUCKS! I remember being an adamant disco hater when it came out. I was really into all other music forms but disco, hated its electronic & repetitive beats just made for dancing, not really artistic I thought (except for Earth Wind & Fire, loved them). <BR> <BR> Now though, all 70's music no matter what kind, even disco, brings back floods of good memories from those days. <BR> <BR> Anyone else join me in having a disco hater forum? LOL. <BR> <BR> Tue, 25 Mar 2008 23:33:52 EST Across the Universe Has anyone seen this Beatles Rock Opera? <BR> I saw it last night and the music of the Beatles was soooo good. Let It Be, OMG! <BR> <BR> I didn't know if it would be weird like the Rocky Horror Picture Show (Which I loved, but it was weird.)I bought this DVD. <BR> <BR> I am buying Across the Universe. Has anyone seen it? <BR> Terri <BR> Mon, 24 Mar 2008 15:11:11 EST Where are all the Disco Lovers? I worked in a disco back in the 70's. Had some really fun times back then. I love disco but my husband loves Rock. <BR> <BR> Sat, 22 Mar 2008 19:59:02 EST Challenge Results/Di isscussion Our first weekly team challenge for the team will be to try to walk at least 7,000 steps a day.
