Well that's understandable. You should listen more than talk and maybe you'll learn something. That's why I'm beezer and you're not.

beginning to understand now why the older generations had so little patience with the 60's generation back in the day...always changing things...sit in's, protest's, do this, don't do that....on & on...



but on the flip side...funny how those same older gentleman folk had no problem with the woman's desire to update the fashion styles...

remember the mini skirts



sure you do...which soon led to the hot pants era...



yep...sometimes change can be good...guess you have to accept the good with the bad...

I've said for years the Super Bowl should be on Saturday, perhaps all nfl games, move college games to Sunday. And yes moving Halloween to the last Saturday would be convenient, but it is tied to an event and we can't just willy-nilly pick dates for historical events, well except the Lord's birthday, that was decided to be moved to December 25. Does anyone think he'd mind if we celebrated his birthday the 3rd Thursday in December?

If they want to make make Halloween, or really ANYTHING safe for kids, everything should be abolished, and banned, and they should all be duct taped and thrown in a closet until they turn 18.

Now get the hell off my lawn!

It's natural for one to want all things to be same as they were during their youth, during many of the best times of our lives.
I want Veterans Stadium back. I want the original Spectrum back. I want .29 per gallon gas back. I want world series games during the day. I want $2500. new cars back. I want Christianity to be accepted and not hated and attacked as it is today. I want true free speech back.
I want my anatomy to work as it did when I was 18.
But in the mean time....get the hell off my lawn!

The fact that Halloween is there eve of All Saint's Day doesn't really mean much anymore. There may be some countries where All Saint's Day is still observed, but in the US most people don't even know what it is. I've never seen Halloween observed as anything more than an excuse to dress up, collect candy, and party. I see no reason why we couldn't move it to a more convenient time.

Music, Motorcycles, and Family... Nothing else really matters in life!
