Would you like to turn back time?
Would you like to turn back time? This is a question posed by one our our members who would welcome your views …
“Just recently I have read of so many people who want to return to the fifties, sixties, seventies etc and seem to want to live in the past. What do you think? I can remember lining up for the necessary inoculations and praying that I wouldn’t be last in the queue as the needle got blunt (yes, they used the same needle for the whole class); only being able to buy a limited range of vegetables; being able to play outside and having to come home when it got dark; having only one television channel and that was in black/white. We’ve come a long way but although life is very different now, I welcome most of the changes.”
Are you happy in the current era, or would you like to revisit the past? What are your views?
