I would like to have a packet of " Ollos" again.
looked much like cheezels, but olive taste.
Also the ice cream called " Hazelnut roll", it was in a foil mulit coloured wrapper.

Am I the only one, who misses the way life was, decades ago.
No political correctness BS.
You made the most of what you had.
If you couldn't afford to buy it, you saved up until you could, and really appreciated that special item when you got it.
The music was enjoyable.

Speaking of musicianship, this might rate for guitar work - I've always loved this (even like the paisley jacket)

Mick Jagger is ageing better than Johnny Cash who unfortunately only lived to 71 years old.
The open notes of this tune sound similar to opening of Stairway to Heaven
Moving
They both died less than a year after this video, and the house burned down a few years later

Poor old Johnny Cash looked 90. Aged terribly. Weird that the song he's probably best remembered for these days is a song he didn't write.

Are you reluctant to change as you get older?

We're all fairly savvy with the net, so thats something, though I know people that arent and dont use computers or smartphones.

Its sometimes seems hard to keep up with the constant change going on around us

What things dont you like that are changing?

I dont like buying things online, though tickets and payments are different...I need to feel a shirt, try on shoes and pants...clothes online isnt my go

I have an E-tag, an Opal card, a keycard, get my bills D-debited...though I still like paper statements..especially insurance policies...car rego always creeps up on me now Ive no sticker to remind me, the text meassage from the RTA or is it RMS , PMS, RTS, RPA...one of those...reminds me

I wonder if Malcolm or Bill will text me? Someone else recently did.

I havent hired a DVD from a machine, havent used VR goggles, Ive seen 3D TV but that gave me a headache...I avoid drive thrus, I like to take my time and the lanes seem very narrow. I still watch the news on TV but havent bought a paper in a decade or more but a mate at work younger than me does, someone still cuts my hair for $10...though they speak a different language but thats OK with me.

OK with change?

It's inevitable, so no point fighting it too much, but we are not over the hill yet, just struggling to stay at the crest.

Pretty well sums me up as well, though I have gotten a DVD from a machine a few times, pay a bit more for a snip and not overly tech savvy.

I hate 4WDs, their high headlights appear on high beam though not. If behind or oncoming are irritating. Much worse so now with my Bells. Before the right headlight had to drop towards the middle of the road but the 4Wds seem to raise on both left and right sides?? I don't think they comply with the old standards.

This is a famous song translated into about a dozen languages - possibly influenced by Cat Stevens. A famous movie was also based on this song called Anak (child).
