I do my best not to waste and over consume which isnt easy with a family of 7. Our footprint is miniscule. The Kids are taught the principle of Stewardship.

I think We forget that we love the Online Shopping world and the fact we do almost everything in real time these days an that there is a cultural cost.



For me
"The Kids are taught the principle of Stewardship." Well done, and my full admiration. Cheers to you and yours Spartan.

And so many more, the best thing was buying and album or making a mixtape of your favourite songs. Some you would get off the radio, sit and wait and make sure you hit record and pause in time.
Sorry but I don't think they measure up against the Beatles, Rolling Stones, The Who, The Doors, The Kinks, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Pink Flloyd, Neil Diamond, Tom Jones, Ray Charles, Johnny O'Keefe, Johnny Cash, Shangri Las, Tina Turner, Shirley Bassey, Dusty Springfield, Bob Dillon, Peter Paul & Mary, Sam Cooke, The Big Bopper, Elvis, Mamas & Papas, The Animals, Johnny Farnham, Normie Rowe, Monkees (haha) Diana Ross Supremes, Aretha Franklin, Joe Cocker, Manfred Man, The Hollies, Chad Morgan, Donovan, Canned Heat, Cream, roy Orbison, Procol Harlum,
etc etc
There are bands on both lists that I like (Roxy Music, The Ramones, Rolling Stones) but none of them measure up against Frank Zappa, The Mothers of Invention or Captain Beefheart and The Magic Band.
Zappa ( & mothers of invention) for sure, Cap Beefheart and the magic band were at times a bit out there but the guitar chops was massive! i dont know if that zappas influence or just the same school?

Certainly a great time for rock guitar music.

My list was comparing sixties against the seventies though many overlapped. I missed Crosby Stills Nash & Young for the sixties. After the sixties if nothing else was invented it would not have really mattered. (spelt Dylan terribly there).

Just listening to a Retro radio show and the announcer is doing some late 60's hippy type music and informs the listeners that the 50th Anniversary of the start of 'The Summer Of Love' is only 6 months away!.

Wow. that long? Makes me feel more like I have 2 legs and the torso in the pit.
People have mentioned some great groups and singers in this thread, but lets not forget the one hit wonders. After Thunderclap Newman released "Something in the Air" they didn't need another one.
As a rule I hated 50's music, but if I had to name my favourite song of all time it would it would have to be Sarah "Sassy" Vaughan's "Broken hearted melody", a voice like liquid gold.

something in the air was a great song- the mob who played it were south african i think.
without being too morbid,next week marks the 40 th anniversary of the granville train disaster.
although i had no personal involvement or loss,i still feel great pity for those souls who lost their lives that day.im sure the loss still continues for some families.

the western line is a completely different train ride these days.air conditioned,electric doors,comfortable seating,digital signage- completely advanced from the red rattler days.

ill certainly be pausing and paying my respects on thursday the 19th.

Actually "eyewonder", Thunderclap Newman were a British band that Pete Townsend of the Who formed in 1969 for members John Keen, Andy "Thunderclap" Newman and Jimmy McCullock. Townsend played bass on the singles and album under the name "Bijou Drains". The song (only hit they had) is one of the great songs of the rock era.

As a sidelight with regards to the Granville train disaster - it was the day that I started work at 2SM in Sydney - one of the staff members, can't remember her name was killed that morning, I sat on her seat for a couple of years ( I will remember that day as well).

Granville, forever known as the day of the Roses, being from a regional area it didn't affect me but I had a cousin who was involved in the recovery and it did affect him and quite a few other rescuers.

The Granville Train Disaster was the day that I stopped donating blood. Had being a regular donor for years but there was a special call out that day for bods in Magpie territory where it occurred, in the big mob I worked for of a few thousand people only one other plus myself volunteered - well that was the line in the sand for me. What a weak mob of Aussies wanting to help Aussies.

Your Honour, I object. The Dishonourable innsaneink does not qualify to enter this Forum - he was still in shorts at time of said incident. Do not pass Go and do not collect $200!

Yeah, odd reasoning, but BBF can be just that, odd.

It is one of those few days from way back then that I remember well and we were on holidays at Avoca before my going into sixth class. Saw my first shark on a morning swim and adventure, before returning to our accommodation to find my parents glued to the radio (no television). Would be watching it unfold live on this device had it occurred today, which shows just how much has changed.

It is called not being a sucker. If it was good enough for the other 1998 not to donate then good enough for me as well. Don't worry I was also booed and abused when I spoke against accepting the company's super offer as inadequate and the co. having majority of directors. About a decade later the apologies came out when under new management the funds went missing. But they did not get my money.

To this day, regardless of the years, I still maintain a burning rage/ hold a grudge against Manly and a certain ref of the 70's era. ( A hint first name starts with G, surname starts with H)
Won't, speak my mind about these two, as I'll probably get banned from this forum.

Magpie legend Noel Kelly has said that he believes referee Darcy Lawler had accepted money to help St George win the 1963 Grand Final.
