The coffee is hot, bold and strong. Let’s sit a spell and discuss what’s right and what’s wrong. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those thought-provoking chats.
Tidbits from the year 1971
In 1971, the microprocessor was invented and we experienced the beginning of the digital age. Transistor technology was being used more and more in products such as handheld calculators. National Public Radio (NPR) broadcasts for the first time. Walt Disney World World Resort opens in Orlando, FL. The voting age is lowered to 18 in the US when the 26th Amendment is ratified. Jim Morrison of The Doors is found dead in a bathtub in Paris.
“Expose yourself to your deepest fear; after that, fear has no power, and the fear of freedom shrinks and vanishes. You are free.”-Jim Morrison
A new stock market index called Nasdaq debuts. China is admitted to the UN. FedEx is started by Fred Smith. Greenpeace formally comes into existence. Amtrak created to provide US intercity passenger train services.
The earth shakes rattles and rolls
San Fernando Valley faults unfold
Unglued lives of poor hapless souls
Sicily’s Mt Etna blows it top
Mishmashed chaos never stops
Randomness of life misses the spot
Losing Jim Morrison closed a door
Much too soon coz we wanted more
Mickey and Minnie make their debut
Sparking oodles of fun for me and you
Ongoing conflicts and devastation
Bruised spirits settle for imperfection

More about 1971 –
Fashions were interesting in 1971 as girls and women donned bejeweled skimmers, and men wore comfy corduroy shoes. Boots were the rage with women wearing Crinkle white vinyl granny boots, embroidered boots, and men looking good in their side zipper boots. There was the Cossack style cap, Tyrolean style hat, and the interchangeable buckle belt.
The fashions in the seventies were a carryover of ideas from the sixties. This was a time of individual expression and dressing to please oneself. Wearing clothes to “fit in” was not “in” for some people. Even the fashion runways exhibited a sign of more radical designs.
