    No matter what our kids and the new generation think about us,
    WE ARE AWESOME!!!! OUR LIFE IS LIVING PROOF!!!!
    To Those of Us Born 1930 – 1979
    • TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED THE 1930’s, 40's, 50's, 60’s and 70's!!
    • First, we survived being born to mothers who smoked and/or drank while they were pregnant.
    • They took aspirin, ate blue cheese dressing, tuna from a can and didn't get tested for diabetes.
    • Then after that trauma, we were put to sleep on our tummies in baby cribs covered with bright colored lead-base paints.
    • We had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, locks on doors or cabinets and when we rode our bikes, we had baseball caps not helmets on our heads.
    • As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, no booster seats, no seat belts, no air bags, bald tires and sometimes no brakes.
    • Riding in the back of a pick- up truck on a warm day was always a special treat.
    • We drank water from the garden hose and not from a bottle.
    • We shared one soft drink with four friends, from one bottle and no one actually died from this.
    • We ate cupcakes made with Lard, white bread, real butter and bacon. We drank FLAV-OR- AID made with real white sugar. And, we weren't overweight. WHY?
    ‚Ä¢ Because we were always outside playing….that's why!
    • We would leave home in the morning and play all day, as long as we were back when the streetlights came on..
    • No one was able to reach us all day. And, we were OKAY.
    • We would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride them down the hill, only to find out we forgot the brakes. After running into the bushes a few times, we learned to solve the problem
    • We did not have Play stations, Nintendo's and X-boxes. There were no video games, no 150 channels on cable, no video movies or DVD's, no surround-sound or CD's, no cell phones, no personal computers, no Internet and no chat rooms.
    • WE HAD FRIENDS and we went outside and found them!
    • We fell out of trees, got cut, broke bones and teeth and there were no lawsuits from these accidents.
    We would get spankings with wooden spoons, switches, ping pong paddles, or just a bare hand and no one would call child services to report abuse.
    • We ate worms and mud pies made from dirt, and the worms did not live in us forever.
    • We were given BB guns for our 10th birthdays, made up games with sticks and tennis balls and, although we were told it would happen, we did not put out very many eyes.
    • We rode bikes or walked to a friend's house and knocked on the door or rang the bell, or just walked in and talked to them.
    • Little League had tryouts and not everyone made the team. Those who didn't had to learn to deal with disappointment. Imagine that!!
    • The idea of a parent bailing us out if we broke the law was unheard of. They actually sided with the law!
    • These generations have produced some of the best risk-takers, problem solvers and inventors ever.
    • The past 50 years have been an explosion of innovation and new ideas. What can kids today do besides push buttons.
    • We had freedom, failure, success and responsibility, and we learned how to deal with it all.
    • If YOU are one of them, CONGRATULATIONS!
    • You might want to share this with others who have had the luck to grow up as kids, before the lawyers and the government regulated so much of our lives for our own good.
    • While you are at it, forward it to your kids so they will know how brave and lucky their parents were.
    • Kind of makes you want to run through the house with scissors, doesn't it ?
    The quote of the month is by
    Jay Leno:
    'With hurricanes, tornados, fires out of control, mud slides, flooding, severe thunderstorms tearing up the country from one end to another, and with the threat of bird flu and terrorist attacks, are we sure this is a good time to take God out of the Pledge of Allegiance?'
    Though this may help with the social atitudes and nanny state issues.

    Hello,

    My name is Jennifer Smith. I saw your website, http://www.searchamelia.com. And, after reviewing the content i.e.”All Signs Point to… Recession?”. I immediately thought that your users would appreciate the content, which one of my client is providing. I can certainly share his website.

    I was wondering if you would be ok to have his website link placed on your website? If so, please let me know.

    Sincere Thanks,

    Jennifer Smith

    Hi ,

    I’m Marry Warner, I’ve been following search amelia for quite some time now and had been learning a lot from its articles like the recent blog post on amelia hotel at the beach..

    I was thinking if I can be a regular contributor for your blog. If you will allow me, I’d like to discuss this topic for my first article.
    Please let me know if you’re interested, I am happy to get something written up and sent over to you – or if you have any topic you’d like to see covered, I am more than happy to write on that.

    All the best,
    Marry Warner
