10 on tuesday: 10 things that were better "way back when"

10 Things That Were Better “Way Back When”

1. Things weren’t so “politically correct” and common sense, good customer service, and children’s respect for their elders were still en vogue.

2. Baskin Robbins Peanut Butter & Chocolate. A few years back they changed the peanut butter.

3. Trefoils Girl Scout cookies. They took all the trans-fats out. Now the recipe is:
½ cup sugar
1 egg white
3 1/4 cups sawdust
¼ tsp vanilla

4. The Fisher Price barn. Sure it had sharp corners, but it was just better.
5. Rap music. I miss the days of "Hotel, motel. Holiday Inn", "When I'm alone in my room sometimes I stare at the wall..." and raps about tennis shoes.

6. Mtv actually played videos all the time. I miss the VJ's, too.7. Snow Days

8. As The World Turns
9. Sit-coms like The Cosby Show, Wings, Mad About You, The Facts of Life, Newhart (in any carnation).

10. Volvos

GREAT list! I agree with everything - even the Volvos! The car I went to college in was a Volvo 240 DL - I miss that thing!!!

I have to agree with most of it! I HAD a Fisher Price Barn---hey, back before they weren't filled with LEAD PAINT!!! :-( My mom got some good money for that when she sold it at a yard sale!

Come visit!
