Using my blog to try and make the world a better place. If I can help someone forget their troubles for a few minutes a day, it's all worth it.

1973 (btw, is it just me, or do I look like the first-season Bobby Brady in this pic?????):
I watch the ripples change their size, but never leave the stream of warm impermanent sand. So the days flow through my eyes but still the days seem the same. And these children that you spit on as they try to change their world are immune to your consultations. They're quite aware of what they're going through.

According to the episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show entitled "Phyllis Whips Inflation" that aired January 18th 1975, Mary's take-home pay after deductions was $680 per month, and her rent had just been raised from $145 per month to $175. The above was her reaction when her landlord informed her of the $30 increase.

Best of luck to you. And thank you so much for the memories. I'm a few months older than you and every entry hit home.

Thanks Joe for the memories you wrote about and for all the other memories that were triggered by it.

Athough you're looking forward don't forget the lessons you learned in the past.

My world, and I'm sure others that have come across your blog, would agree that their world is better for the contributions you've made.

All the best for your future endeavors.

Thanks Marco. Starting Monday I'm going to begin my job search and I'm not really looking forward to it. I haven't searched for a job in almost 20 years.
