13. one of my least favorite places to drive
I call it "the land of 1,000 stoplights"

Strip malls are kind of the thning now, but they don't really dominate where I am. Except that the new wal-mart sorta created its own strip mall.

I cannot remember shopping from 1977 because I was only 15 and didn't really do any of it, but mostly I still do not do much shopping. But I do remember the mall coming in, in 1979.

One other thing I remember from those days is that the news of the day didn't revolve around the stock market as much as it does today. My dad had some stock and watched Rukeyser's Wall Street Week, but the DJIA was not considered so central to America's well being.
