The contrast of a retro childhood vs. a 2016 childhood..
Being a child of the 70's and 80's, I sometimes sit back and shake my head at just how much times have changed. What really gets me however, is just how much it's transformed childhood for the youth of today. Let me expound.. In the 70's and 80's.. a lot ...

During my last 26 years of making pizzas at home, I've had my fair share of experiences with adding vegetables to pizza. Early on, it resulted in the vegetables leaving puddles of water across my pizzas. I became so frustra...

1970s and 80s thrift store flashbacks
During my retro treasure hunts, I often come across all manner of items that bring me right back to my youth.  Check out the abundance of groovy 70's, and awesome 80's goodness I came across in the recent past.. Westclox alarm clock made in the good ol' USA...

Older is better! Example #124.. restaurant logos
I'm a sucker for ingenious marketing and branding. I especially appreciate the talent and ingenuity it takes to create a good looking corporate logo that can withstand the test of time.  Therefore..here are a few retro restaurant logos I sorely miss seeing....

Two retro toys you can still find on shelves
It seems like these two toys that I played with during my youth are popping up all over the place.. Remember these little guys that could magically move and come to life?    If you don't quite recall how these things worked, here's a commercial to jog your ...

A Retro Dad's T-shirt collection
While nothing would make me happier than wearing a suit for upwards of 16 hours a day, I must admit that I've been a T-Shirt freak since I was a kid.  It was probably a couple of years ago when I suddenly realized that the massive stacks of T-shirt's I owne...

To get your Monday started on a good note.. Here's an old picture of Lynda Carter wearing a Shakey's Tee circa late 70s / early 80s. I've got to say.. I would definitely buy a T-shirt emblazoned with this image on it!

A typical Saturday for me back in 1982
Below is an article I've been sitting on for awhile.  I guess it would fall under the category of retro memories.  Enjoy... A couple weekends ago, Fall finally arrived, and hit us with the first cold and rainy day of the season.  I was stuck inside most of ...

Americas Sweethart Annette Funicello passes away at age 70
I heard the news three years ago today, that Annette Funicello had passed away.  She had lost her long battle with multiple sclerosis, which I vividly remember her first announcing back in 1992.  Even though Annette Funicello was a star of the Baby Boomer g...
