Thanks For The Memories, Internet

One thing I regret is that I don't have a good memory - it's not that my being of baby boomer age is affecting me - I just never have had a particularly good memory for some things; I'm terrible with names and dates, and I have forgotten sizable swaths of my childhood and teenage years. However, over the last few years I must say I have truly enjoyed using the Internet and social media like Facebook and Linked In to "connect" to people from my past, and to freshen up some of those memories. It has actually been quite gratifying in several ways; even things like finding music on YouTube has dredged up a few golden oldies that had completely escaped my recollection - such a Ian Dury The Blockheads (below). So thanks for the memories, Internet.
