The break with the past in 1964 does seem more complete than subsequent big changes. The charts were suddenly full of inanely grinning beat combos. But I think that if you looked at the singles charts you'd never detect the other great upheavals such as punk, dance and hip hop. Maybe because in 64 everyone buying pop singles were of the same age but later there were enough mums and dads and older brothers and sisters buying records to keep the charts occupied by Shaking Sevens and Racey. rock had splintered and had so many different audiences that 1964 just couldn't happen again

Just saw a t-shirt in a catalog that reads "When I Was a Kid, We Didn't Have Bottled Water — We Had a Garden Hose"

Fond childhood memories  :)

I don't think I ever drank out of the garden hose. I did, however, try to eat frost off the inside of the deep freeze in the garage. I thought it was like the slushes we got at the Tastee Freeze.

Football.

It's April 11.....if you'd predicted the Premier League table as it now stands, clubs 1 to 20 in order, on the first day of the season back in August, the bookies would have given you minimal odds.

It's April 11.....if you can predict the top 8 of the league below, or indeed any league going down to clubs playing on the edge of hills with cows roaming the out-field, you're a genius.

And yet all the interest is in the predictable.
Funny, isn't it.

I should never use my phone to type more than a few words at a time. My friend and I are going on a trip in a few weeks. I wanted to ask her if she'd mind being the driver. So predictive text sends "Would you miss me being the driver?" Then when I tried to fix it the dumb thing said "Would you make me a nematode?" No lie!

 ha2ha  I actually did laugh out loud at that, Kelley! The first thing I do when I get a new phone is turn off all the auto-correct functions -- it's just about the only thing I can do quickly on my device.

P.S. Hope you and your friend have a good trip!

I did too when it happened! The only reason I have this function on is that it makes writing my grocery lists really simple. But for any extended writing it's a pain. I don't feel like using it for every word when I'm trying to convey a thought but it gets angry if I ignore it!

Thanks! It will be six hours of traveling to see a folk singer whose name I can't even remember off the top of my head! But my friend really likes her so I figured I'd ignore that whiny homebody voice that never wants to go anywhere! It will be great to spend time with my friend. She's one of those rare people I have left who has known me my whole life...and still can stand me! LOL

I've been thinking....that's actually a pretty sophisticated word for an autocorrect/spell program! I had to Google nematode

I know what you mean. My daughters often jokingly threaten to embarrass me in front of my close friends here (in retaliation for all the times I have gleefully fulfilled my parental duty of embarrassing them, LOL). I told them there is absolutely nothing they could tell my friends that they don't already know about me.  ;D

Yeah, I don't know why it came up with that. It "learns" words that I've already used but I certainly have never put that one on my grocery list!
