The best part is still ahead of me - I haven't experienced my 'good old days' yet.
These days young kids don't have any place to form an epic adventure. It's more often in front of the TV screen or a laptop. That's very hard on them. They're being taught daily unsocial skills. Facebook is an unsocial skill. It's so sad.

You look at a herd of cattle and well, they all look the same... but they know. They all have an individual personality, and those personalities change from day to day.
