A time capsule for you

  1. Click here to create a time capsule on the day you were born

    You know I'm dating myself. Bread was 18 cents a loaf, gas was 29 cents a gallon and you could buy a house for $17,400. That's just incredible. Oh, and play doh was just created along with the frisbee. I feel so geriatric.

    HOW COOL! I book marked the site, I definately have plans to use this to make some "just an extra something" birthday presents.

    I was really interesting to see the changes in 3 years (in the 60s) between my husband & I and over 4 years (80s) between my 3 kids.

    This is so much fun ! I did one on my great-grandmother who was born in 1899. On her birthday, one of the songs was "She'll Be Coming Around the Mountain." And the Dow was 66 !
    Several interesting things happened; I realized they wouldn't have been aware as they didn't even have radio then. I don't know if they had daily newspaper delivery where they lived...in the rural areas of Ohio and Pennsylvania.
    Isn't todays media marvelous?
