Hellooo Hellooo !!
Boy-O-Boy,,, we have seen some changes in our lifetime,,,,
And our Eating Habit's  is only one of them,,,
From Propeller planes to man on the moon & satellites in space,, and living on them,,
From horses and wagons, to no horses allowed in towns,, and very few of them,
From almost no communications,, to 3 year olds with cell phones & computers,,
From newspapers being the main form of news,, to almost no more newspapers,,
And transportation,,, from wagons to reefers bringing grapes, tomatoes, lettuce & fruit from
 California, Mexico, and south America,,, 
I went to the movies on Saturday,,, 25 cents bought your ticket, a coke & pop-corn.
When I started driving gas was 27 cents a gallon,,, now its $1.20 a liter // $5.00
A 55 Chev was $1,850.00,,, and new homes were 7 to $10.000.00,,,,,
It's all amazing, when you remember ,,,Back-When you were a Kid !!
Just sit and think about it,,, write your own list,,, and be amazed at what you have lived through !
*** Have a most wonderful life !***  Cheers !! ,,, John,,

Pasta had not been invented. It was macaroni or spaghetti.
Curry was a surname.
A take-away was a mathematical problem.
Pizza? Sounds like a leaning tower somewhere.
Bananas and oranges only appeared at Christmas time.
All chips were plain.
Oil was for lubricating, fat was for cooking.
Tea was made in a teapot using tea leaves and never green.
Cubed sugar was regarded as posh.
Chickens didn't have fingers in those days.
None of us had ever heard of yogurt.
Healthy food consisted of anything edible.
Cooking outside was called camping.
Seaweed was not a recognized food.
'Kebab' was not even a word, never mind a food.
Sugar enjoyed a good press in those days, and was regarded as being white gold.
Prunes were medicinal.
Surprisingly muesli was readily available. It was called cattle feed.
Pineapples came in chunks in a tin; we had only ever seen a picture of a real one.
Water came out of the tap. If someone had suggested bottling it and charging more than gasoline for it, they would have become a laughing stock.
The one thing that we never ever had on/at our table in the fifties ... was elbows, hats and cell phones!

Thanks John
