Changing environment, learning new language and new culture,being a wife and a mother, living far away from families and friends, I have come to share my views, thoughts, feelings, ideas on so many things that I cherish.

Although I don't remember those things- it was great to see what life was like in the 50s. Amazing how much more expensive everything is today (I know we get paid more, but still). It was a simpler time!

I don't know the time either because I wasn't born then but I've heard more goods about the 50s than bad.Just like you mentioned, it was a simpler time and I cherish that.

I was not around in the 50s but based on my time here on earth it is alarming to see how the cost of living has increased. Those were definitely the good old days Nekky.
