    Post Did you know that 50 years ago

    we would be all sitting somewhere maybe reading a book or listening to a radio? No pcs, no tv ,no ipods, no cds, no headphones. We would be just sitting around a fire maybe listening to stories. Eating sausages maybe. No e-i ,no nothing just candle lit darkness and strange sounds.

    just a thought,
    Westside.

    If you had poor eyesight you would be sat in darkness. If you were old and broke you would be in the workhouse. If you were old and rich you would possibly be dying of syphilis. But you would have been at mass.

    God bless the old days, eh West?

    I am happy to just read and could probably go w/o TV. My Ipod though, thats another matter. I am also addicted to the internet.

    If your aunt had balls she'd be your uncle.

    I remember when i was younger a big group of us used to go the some place in Wicklow. We used to sit around a fire into the darkness of the night ,telling stories and eating bbq food. Not a care in the world. Far detached from reality (i later found out that for quite a few of us this was general detachment and had nothing to do with those nights). Good times though.

    the good ole days,
    Westside.

    Ps why have ppl forgotten all these simple things?

    50 years ago I was tucked up in my Moses basket, wrapped in a swaddling blanket.
    I got fed, washed, kissed and hugged. Oh, happy days.

    I have an aunt and she would kick any six uncles around. I often felt like grabbing her by her nuts just to see if they are some there. You could light a damp match off her. A nasty bit of stuff. She used sink her nails into me when i was small just to see me in pain. If she did it now id kick her head in.

    a lovely one she is,
    Westside.
