Granny Stories Soon to be Forgotten

Now the great thing about growing old is that you remember so many things. Like the first man on the moon. The student uprisings. The kidnapping of Aldo Moro. Sooty bombed out London. The smog that suffocated the city. The Kennedy assassinations, Jack and Bobby. But the bad thing about being old is that you keep forgetting. Just about everything. That doesn?t really matter at all. Like filing your tax returns or your appointment with the dentist say. Or even why the hell you just went back to your bedroom. But being on the last lap does concentrate your mind. So lets recount some of those wonderful memories. Perhaps not the Man on the Moon so much. Though my mother was absolutely bowled over by it saying she just couldn?t wrap her mind round it, we young ones immersed in science fiction as we were then, didn?t think it was so fantastic after all. Just something in the order of things which was bound to happen at some time sooner or later and seemed a lot like later to our fertile little minds.

So I thought I might regale you all with little snippets from the lived past which will no longer be ?lived? at all, but no less amusing or interesting, for some I hope,  for that.

  1. First of all I want to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior
    to writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my ideas out.

    I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15
    minutes are usually lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or
    tips? Thanks!

  2. I think that everything published made a ton of sense.
    However, think about this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a headline that grabbed people’s attention? I mean Whatever Happened
    to the Idea of Democracy? – Parina is a little boring.

    You could glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how
    they create article headlines to grab people to open the links.
    You might add a related video or a pic or two to get people interested about
    everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.

  3. I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering problems with your blog.

    It looks like some of the written text on your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too?
    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Cheers

  4. Good article. I will be dealing with many of these issues as well..
