My first memory is seeing the Berlin Wall come down on CNN when I was three years old.

My dad called me into the living room, sat me down and said "this is history - you ought to see this".

Now I'm a history major...I wonder...

I did the same thing with my mom.

The look on her face pretty much resembled this smiley

OOooo tell me what is was like at the Airport.
I saw them at Shea - both years.

yeah I remember the U-2 spy plane.
I wondered when I first heard aout them in 1980 why they named themselves after an old spy plane scandal.
then I read somewhere there was a form in either the UK or Ireland alone designated 'U2'.
ALso then in a 80/81 interview Bono {still Vox, then}said it was an inclusive term -- you too.

and OH the Moon landing was SO amazing/exciting!
I saw the Astros in the NYC Ticker Tape Parade they were given. I tickertape parades! There is nothiing quite like a NYC Ticker Tape Parade.


In fact -- REMEMBER Ticker Tape............the name for the Parade {and because the location was down in Wall Street area going up Broadway} came from the fact that the ORIGINAL ticker tape from the stock exchange was tossed out the window in increadiblely long STREAMERS!

You can document cutural/tech changes watching live those parades b/c after TX TP was gone people threw out those many- colored COMPUTER PUNCH CARDS AND [I] all the little punched card-stock pieces! That was like a "poof" if tiny 'paper-snow' coming down on us.

Then it was the long sheets of big computer paper ... the, like, bands of white & green type that was perforated....into 'zig-zagged' bundles.
They'd send the first piece out and let it UNFOLD from there.

and along the way rolls of toilet paer replaces the TX TP too.

When someone said "AIDS" the first thing you thought of they were on a diet (try and figure that one out kiddies)
The day Kieth Moon died
The day Thurman Munson died

The day John Bonham died
Watched the Space Shuttle crash and then in an unbelievable show of patriotism sitting in a bar in a VT ski town when 60 minutes played the National Anthem with the scenes and pictures of the crew and everyone rising at once in the bar.
I remember first watching team USA beat the Russians and then going out and playing hockey all night on a pond under the stars.

A pack of cigarettes $1.10
A marijuana cigarette $1.00 ( just something I was told)

I remeber when Cassete recorders first came out!

Previous to that - one of our uncles used to bring his reel to reel over to our extended family gatherings for us-- when we were around 13 or so - to play with.
