I remember when Flashcube and I protested the war at the Pentagon, dropped acid with Timothy Leary, and saw the Grateful Dead at Fillmore West. What an integral part of that decade he was!

One of the reasons Kodak camera were so popular was because the lenses were purposely just a touch out of focus. This removed wrinkles and small blemishes & made folks look better.

I loved flashcubes! My camera before that used bulbs with bent wires on the base -- they often didn't make contact right, and were as hot as hades when you ejected them. Flashcubes meant taking pictures faster, more reliably, and no more burnt fingers.

Closer than you think, Patty. Last year I scanned the photos from my grandparents' 50th into the computer, added some space below the image and started filling in all the names. Surprisingly, I knew EVERYBODY in those photos but still needed help as so much time had passed several didn't look like they did after they grew out of diapers!
