Those Born 1930-1979, READ TO THE
BOTTOM FOR QUOTE OF THE MONTH BY JAY LENO. IF YOU DON'T READ ANYTHING
ELSE---ITíS VERY WELL STATED.

TO ALL THE KIDS WHO SURVIVED the 1930s, 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-based paints.

We
had no childproof lids on medicine bottles, doors or cabinets and when
we rode our bikes, we had no helmets. Not to mention the risks we took
hitchhiking.

As infants & children, we would ride in cars with no car seats, booster seats, seat belts or air bags.

Riding in the back of a pick up 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, white bread and real butter and drank Kool-aid made with
sugar, but we weren't overweight because, WE WERE ALWAYS OUTSIDE
PLAYING!

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 O.K.

We
would spend hours building our go-carts out of scraps and then ride
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 Playstations, Nintendo's, X-boxes, no video games at all,
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 or 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 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. 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?"

And now 60 years later living in a world that doesn't appear to be very user friendly, while God still sets out the warning flares.



Well, Jay Leno still has some sense of decency!

In Christ,

*You know you're growing old when...*





You know you're growing old when..



You've come to the annoying realization that your parents were right about almost everything.



The bag boy volunteers to help load groceries into your car-in the "ten items or less" lane.



You've stopped supporting your children, and started supporting your parents.



You've found yourself discussing the weather.



You remember your kid's names, just not always the right one.



You have nightmares about forgetting to move the garbage cans to the street for the garbage collector.



Your high school yearbook is now home to three different species of mold.



You buy "age-defying" makeup and "anti-wrinkle" creams and believe they work.



You've realized that all those geeky people in Bermuda shorts walking around Disney World include you.



You recognize Led Zeppelin songs that have been turned into elevator Muzak.



You've had three opportunities to buy every single Disney Animated Classic-"for the last time in a generation"



Wal-Mart and Target seem to share your fashion sense.



The only way you know to stop a virtual pet from beeping involves the patio and a sledgehammer.



You can pack two suits, Five shirts,
five ties, five pairs of underwear, five pairs of socks, a pair of
shoes, and half of your bathroom into a carry-on bag-in less than five
minutes.



You know what Earth Shoes are.



You think if you hear "Stairway to Heaven" one more time your head will explode.


Your weight-lifting program seems to have no effect on your
muscles, but the veins on the backs of your hands are bulking up quite
nicely.
