I think that the period that I would have liked to have come from would have been the Millennium, and am really happy that I was there.. Just to reflect on how far we have come, and to think about, thoughts as a 8 year old, and how those have happened.
Maybe, given an option, I would like to go back to a period where we had no money.. Those that worked, got work done back, but those that were lazy, got nothing... But all of the time to look after our elders, and those with problems....
What was the best period you would have had?

You pinched my lines again Maxine. !!!  

Also, it was a period in time where you felt safe in your own home, bobbies on the beat, and if any youths got "out of order" you could give them a clip round the ear without being "sent down" for it.

The music was great too, I would probably have been a Mod.



Nigel ?  Oh yeah, he's up there !

Don`t know about going back to the 60`s.... I was only born then,but all that marijuana etc, they say that if you remember the 60`s...then you were`nt there.

I`d want to go to the period when there were Pirates.... only if Jonny Depp was there tho.

Failing that.... I`d choose the 80`s... and grasp all the chances I had to make a good life elsewhere.

the 1920s - but i would most likely be dead by now !  

the 1950s - but i would be a rather boring ol' fart by now !  

the 1980s - but i would have missed some of the best music then !  

the 2010s - but ... hey , i may survive until then ... most likely jus' to see the world shortly before its apocalypse !

I would have liked the 1940's myself and believe I would have been a crooner. I love singing in that style and threads were devine!!
