A few days ago I read that it was forty years ago this year that Atari launched the 2600 video game console! I really do feel old, now! http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/technology-41204660/40-years-since-the-launch-of-the-atari-2600 I actually still have mine somewhere and it still works, I think! I received it as a Christmas present, like many kids at the time, and it was the probably the coolest Xmas present ever! I had the all black model and it came with Pac Man. I used to get told off for playing on it for hours on end! Defender, Raiders of The Lost Ark, Phoenix, Asteroids. I always wanted Space Invaders, but never got it. It got me thinking this weekend about all those things I miss from my childhood when growing up with my sister, from sweets (candy), drinks, crisps (chips), bikes, toys, TV programs, building dens etc. I think growing up in the 70's and 80's, although money was tight, we had it so much better in a lot of ways. You miss anything in particular from your childhood days?
