I'm old enough to remember looking at "IronSide" and "Perry Mason". The shows I love to look at.

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.

I remember saving soda bottles to get a refund. I also remember picking up glass soda bottles and turning them in for 2 cents each and when I had 10 cents, I could go to a movie. :)

�I feel the greatest destroyer of peace today is 'Abortion', because it is a war against the child... A direct killing of the innocent child, 'Murder' by the mother herself... And if we can accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? How do we persuade a woman not to have an abortion? As always, we must persuade her with love... And we remind ourselves that love means to be willing to give until it hurts...�
� Mother Teresa

When long straight hair was an "In thing". The popular way to straighten one's hair was to iron it. You had to be careful though that you wouldn't singe it.
