One thing I really liked about the 1970's was that retail products were not all 100% disposable. You didn't have to purchase the same items in perpetuity. This allowed us to have a higher percentage of spending money from our paychecks.
Not too much as I was overseas from 1970 to 1979. Just what I saw and heard on Armed Forces radio and some newspapers. I was busy !
Lennon and his solo career.
Maggie Thatcher The Milk Snatcher, won the 1979 general election.
Pink Floyd released their album The Wall
There's a lot about the 70's that I DON'T remember, maaaaaannnn.
Good rock music, getting my drivers license, starting high school and Three Mile Island.
How amazingly clever, handsome and attractive I was at the time.
Munich Olympics and the Islamic terrorist attack.
Tricky Dick Nixon added a new word to the lexicon: Watergate!
The Vietnam war ended.
Going to the beach or the lake or the springs. Hanging with my friends. Getting my driver's license. Going to my brother's for college parties, even though I was in high school. And the music that was the soundtrack to all of that. Certain songs will take me right back a soon as I hear them.
That I didn't exist.
I wasn't alive back then but I remember those bell button pants and Charlie's Angels stuff like that.
