Sunday, January 24, 2010 apple a day

Hello. On this day in 1984 the first Apple Macintosh went on sale. Ironically, George Orwell's 1949 novel, "1984" spoke a lot about big brother. What better way to keep an eye on people than with a computer, or am I simply a paranoid? What would students today do without computers and the Internet? Back in the 70's, when I was, well... I didn't have a computer but this thought provoked me into forming a Top Ten list of my favorite 70's items.
Carpenters my favorite group
Datsun 240Z my first (or second car)
Debbie Bruni my saving grace neighbor
Friendly Ice Cream what didn't I deep fry?
Brady Bunch shirts with a zipper in the middle
Nanny and The Professor (names don't get much better than Phoebe Figalilly )
Methacton Band (the people, not necessarily the marching)
Sherri...for accidentally showing me WCU
Newman Center... even Nuns can rock and roll
God...for seeing me through the 70's relatively unscathed.
