If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

Remember the old wind up grammophone and the hot irons on top of the cook stove at my Grandma's house. She also had the icebox. Me being in a city dwelling, I remember the coal bins being filled for our heat and also the icebox

candy bars being a quarter, buying cigarettes for my parents with a note, record players, than 8 track tapes, corduroy being cool with plaids & paisley, that there was once no such thing as car seats, when there weren't laws about helmets, when slides were taller than 8 feet and playgrounds where made of steel...ahhh the good ole' days.

"Party" telephone lines....2 Party Lines and 4 Party Lines mean't sharing telephone service with other homes in the area. When you wanted to use the phone, you had to pick it up quietly in case another house was already using it. Everyone was assigned a ring tone....so someone else's phone would also ring in your house!

i am old enough to remember being given a dime as a kid, just in case I needed to use the payphone to call home. I still remember my first phone number when i was four: 202 434 3598 :) I remember gas station attendants pumping your gas and cleaning your windshields. I remember being able to play outside with neighborhood kids when it was a saturday or sunday afternoon.
