Hiatus continues. But……

Interesting flashback series.

CPAC’s “The Fifties” is a nine part series of the (middle of last century) history of Canada.

Here is Holly Doan to describe the series:

And here is the first episode, called “The Young”:


All of us old timers remember all of this – consciously or not. I was 6 years old in 1955.

Incredible series if this first and the second segment is indicative. A glimpse at how your beliefs and cultural foundations were formed.

From a personal perspective, I remember Marilyn Bell’s accomplishment – I was 5 years old when it happened. I remember hurricane Hazel. I remember!

The second and subsequent segments are here:

Take the time to watch.

I will stifle my jaundiced political perspective ’til later…..
