Children of the 1970's
Hey y'all, any of yous guys grew up during the 70s give a shout out.

From 1970-1979 I was 7-17 years old.  I remember bell bottoms, afros, Olivia Newton-John, "I can't believe I ate the whole thing" (Alka-Seltzer commercial), Farrah Fawcett, Star Wars, Three's Company, Jaws, Billie Jean King, Viet Nam, Watergate, Patti Hearst, etc, etc.

What were your fondest memories?

On CNN tonight @ 9 PM EDT will air "The Seventies: One Nation Under Change."  Watch it and tell us what you think.

If anyone wants to talk about Pink Floyd I'm here (not a 70's kid)

I was born in 1976... I don't think that counts though Smile

Fun topic!

What are these "70's" of which you speak?
There is nothing better in life than lying next to the one you love.

And they don't know that you love them.

Or that you're in their house again.

Pretty much the same memories. And I'm the same age group, give or take a year.

But I was more into Blondie than Olivia Newton John and John Travolta. Hated the advent of disco. Colorful dresses and tapestries with large flowers. Jason King being a style icon. Cars that had character and could be identified by the sound of their motors. Makeup that looked like fisheyes. And most importantly pong.

I'm not American, but the things I remember about America is Nixon resigning. I was on an Italian beach when I saw the papers. The heli evacuation from the embassy in Saigon, that Jimmy Carter's brother was called silly Billy by the media, which made me and my brother laugh and the Salt negotiations in Vienna in 1979.

Graduated HS in '75. Did a little college, and got a job and apartment in '76.

My tastes in clothing, music, furniture, decor, etc. froze in the '78/79 era.

Bell bottoms, sideburns, long hair, disco music, black vinyl chairs and chrome and glass tables, I could go on, but you get the idea.

Yes, I am a social leper . . . . .
If any email controversy impacted the election, it wasn't Russian hacking of the DNC and  John Podesta's email, it was Hillary Clinton's decision to have her own email server and the subsequent FBI investigation which raised all the same  questions  Hillary Clinton has justifiably faced for decades about her trustworthiness and honesty.

I almost missed the 70s entirely. I think it's kind of nice that I got to spend at least a few months in them. I think they left their mark.
The fool hath said in his heart, There is a God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
Psalm 14, KJV revised edition

In the 1970s, I was naught through nine.  My fondest memories are of our collie Trixie.  My worst memories are of starting school and getting into a peck of trouble for stabbing my best friend Mickey Doone in the hand with a fork.
