Game- "There are three basic types of games- those that involve (1) luck, (2) physical endurance, or (3) skill." Electronic games in the 70s were pure luck: you had to be lucky enough to have parents that would buy such an expensive toy. As time went on, electronic games began to include skill and especially physical endurance. You must be in top physical form to play a video game for 20 hours straight fueled only by Chee-tos and Mountain Dew.
|In those days, parents weren't concerned about their children becoming|
overweight and lazy. How long could a small moving square possibly keep
their attention before they would decide to go outside and play?
Girl Scouts- A wonderful organization to which I belonged as a girl and that helped shape the woman I am today. Although uniforms change over the years (thank goodness!), the goals of Scouting remain the same: to help girls develop as creative, responsible individuals.
