      PLEASE READ: We are moving the community   02/15/18

      Dear Community friends and family,   After great consideration, we are moving the Grandparents.com community to Facebook Groups effective March 15, 2018.   This wasn’t an easy decision, but we want to bring our communities together and believe the best place to do so is through Facebook’s groups feature. We’re so appreciative of you and the diverse conversations and opinions you have provided over the past 9 years. Your stories and amazing advice have helped so many readers, and have reached thousands of GP.com users. We encourage you to retrieve any information you want to retain as the forum will only be accessible by the admin after March 15, 2018. We’ve created a closed Facebook group called Mothers-in-Law Unplugged where we welcome you to continue the conversations around grandparenting, family, and in-law relationships, and any general topics we discuss here. As the group is closed and each user must be approved, your friends and family on Facebook won’t see any of your activity. Request to join the group here: http://bit.ly/milunplugged Thank you to all of our past and current users. You helped build our community, and we look forward to continuing to interact with you in the Facebook groups. If you have any questions about the groups and privacy, let’s chat about here:   Sincerely,   The Grandparents.com Team

The British Invasion......Where were you?

Although I can't seem to remember where I put my glasses these days I do have an acute memory of certain "important" events in my life. I know where I was when President Kennedy was assassinated. I can recall what I was doing "when the lights went out" in 1965 leaving the whole North East in darkness and of course like everyone else I clearly remember the NYC tragedy of 9/11. There is one other event I can add to the list! I remember exactly where I was when the Beatles appeared on the Ed Sullivan Show 50 years ago this week. I, (like every other pre-teen and teenager in the country) was glued to the old black and white television set in my living room watching history being made before my very eyes. The "British Invasion" was in motion and rock and roll was coming full throttle from England to the U.S.A. and the American youth here were ready and willing to embrace it. Within seconds of seeing the Fab Four aka John, Paul, George and Ringo I knew I was in love; in love with the music, the men, the clothing, the hair styles and the overall package. That Sunday evening 50 years ago the Beatles burst onto the scene and for me they never left. Their influence has been phenomenon for most of my generation and I for one am thrilled that I was here to witness it, (and of course to remember it ) lol

Yep! I was 11, in 6th grade and so excited to see the Beatles on TV! I still love British Invasion music, but I've now sorted out the crap from the good stuff, and some was very very good.

Thanks....Mame is my grandma name. The hubby goes by "Mac", a tribute to his Scottish heritage. There is no way we get mixed up with the other grandma, Papa, nonna etc...as our GK have a host of GP and GGP.

 

9/25 is also my birthday...adding the numbers makes my user name the proper length.
