    It may be that experiencing the sixties in Canada was different than experiencing it in the US. Did you need to deal with the possibility of being drafted into the Viet Nam War? You may have met some emigres who joined you as a result of their particular approach to dealing with that issue. I joined the Coast Guard on the advice of my late brother who was an army helicopter pilot in Viet Nam.

    The sixties may have seemed "liberal" to you. That seems a strange way of describing total social upheaval marked by political assassinations, riots and destruction at home and abroad. It may be our different angles of perception.

    But it's more than that, times were just so much simpler, so much easier, so much more friendly. Now everything is all about technology & speed & i gotta have this & i gotta have that. Everybody is in such a rush to go here, go there, the roadways are at least 10 times more dangerous to drive on because of what people do in the car & how they must race everywhere. There is also so much hate in the world today & very very little respect for each other.

    Yeah i would glady go back & live in the 80's all over again & i would take those times over today's times in a heartbeat.
    And yet the '80s were called "The Me Decade". No, the technology wasn't like today, but it was all about I gotta have this and I gotta have that. To me, the '70s were that simpler time, but that was when I was aged 7-17, like you in the '80s. So perhaps it's not so much about the actual decade, but it's about how old we were at the time. Just a thought.

    Tough one to answer. I was born in the '60s, grew up in the '70s, met my first love and met my (now) wife in the '80s, we were married and bought our house in the '90s, we have done some great traveling in the noughts and the teens...

    Hmmmm, I guess they're all great decades.

    Of all the soap storylines, I followed Days of Our Lives' Salem Slasher storyline. Parts were taken from The Man in the Iron Mask, but it was still a classic. And I was surprised at how many of us teenage GUYS were watching soaps lol but most of them watched All My Children and One Life To Live.
    Man, who didn't watch Days back then? Even guys on the football team watched Days on their lunch period.

    Favorite storyline back then had to be when Marlena was possessed by the devil and as it turned out, John Black was the world's greatest exorcist.

    Only in soaps.

    The 90's.

    Graduated high school in the early 90's, got married in the late 90's, and did all sorts of awesome stuff in between the two.
