Good fluff Clam....No I would never change. Hasn't been a World War or a Depression since I was born. I saw the Beatles live in Brisbane (minus Ringo), enjoyed the experience of a new flush toilet inside the house, saw Sputnik (the first object in outer space), saw live on TV man's first step on the moon, discovered pizza in the early '60s, got to wear flaired trousers and beads, drank cuppachino in a coffee lounge illuminated by candles in wine bottles.
I made big money selling the first electronic calculators - the size of a sewing machine that could do the basic maths and accumulate the total. Cost about 3 years wages. Prior to that I sold an expensive carbon paper where the carbon copy wouldn't smudge.
To-day I can fly to the other side of the world for $1500. I can chat to interesting folk anywhere in the world on the net. I got a mobile phone, for crying out loud. Who would have believed that would ever be possible apart from Dick Tracey?
And the planet Earth is a great place to be on. Sure there are problems such as global warming but thank God that we now have activists who are prepared to sacrifice all to find solutions.
I'm just an ageing baby boomer..and I feel so lucky (Ooops.. not "lucky"....I meant "fortunate in time and place").
