    The music was better. The lyrics. Technology is better today but the lyrics are not as good.

    The only thing I really miss is the music of my era (60s & 70s) while growing up. The vocal talent and showmanship of that time was far more superior than the music of today. One man's opinion! :-)

    Absolutely nothing.  I wouldn't go back in time a single day for--as the saying goes--all the rice in China.  (Or all the American production lines in China these days, I suppose.)  I learned a lot growing up as we all do, but relive it?  Any part of it?

    No thanks.

    I guess I miss my Mum and Dad most of all. I loved the freedom of growing up in the country, we seemed to be out playing all day, building dens and camps and climbing trees or our on our bikes, going for miles. We never worried about the things in life that modern parents try to protect their children from and which seems to me to result in a restriction of the freedoms we enjoyed - although I acknowledge that today's children have many advantages we didn't!

    I miss the music too, my Saturday job (at Woolworths) and the independence to earn some money to spend as I chose. I miss my dog, Tinker, who was a constant companion. I miss going horseback riding (I now have back problems so can no longer ride).

    I look back on my childhood with nostalgia - lots of happy memories and no regrets, but enjoy life through a child's eyes still, taking delight in the simple things. The good thing is that although growing older is inevitable, growing up is not compulsory (thank goodness)!

    I miss not having to pay bills. Having no particular responsibilities beyond a few chores.

    The simplicity of that time actually....no cellphones, no internet. People have enough time to actually see and mingle with others. Social life was real social physically not only on the internet like now a days...
