    Well I definitely remember Tang. I used to get in that stuff and eat it dry, just like that. Or if I made a glass of it, I always used way more than I should, ended up with a big ol' orange sugar hill at the bottom of my glass.

    But I was a late 70's child. ;)

    I prefered lik m sticks to Tang, actually my mom didn't let me have Tang because she hated astronauts and space in general

    we didn't get CBC, still don't as a matter of fact, but we did get NBC, ABC, CBS, and PBS...thats right, no cable back then

    Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley...

    that's so 80's, though. i'm lost. are we remembering the 70's, or the 80's. because i have more 70's memories. like being glued to shaw bros pictures with really awful/awesome dubbing.

    they're a thing of beauty. they takes me back every time, to the days they were on UHF, and you had to manually tune the big tv knob to the right frequency. that was awesome.

    Yeah that sucked especially if you're the poor sap stuck holding the rabbit-ears with the tinfoil hanging off it so everyone else can watch. And there were only three VHF stations, and if you're lucky, one PBS and maybe one grainy Independent channel on UHF.
