The Beatles at Shea. Wow. I was 16 at the time and would have loved to be there although from the videos I've seen, they were really bad because they couldn't even hear themselves. Must have been crazy in the crowd.

 

My mom and aunt took us as a surprise when my brother was 7 and I was 9.  They landed by helicopter and between that noise, the girls SCREAMING and the sound of people getting sick all around us, no one could hear anything. Definitely not sorry that we got to and witness this and for the price of $5.50 per ticket, it was a bargain.  😉☺️

Algebra..you have 3 kids...you need how many boxes of cereal to last a week....solve for X.  

Depending on the ages of the kids, you would have to allow for unknown variables including, but not limited to how many boxes are stuffed into the toilet.

I'm a relative whippersnapper at 54, but I'm quite familiar with King of the Road by Roger Miller. And the Kingston Trio, and The Ray Conniff Singers, and The Lettermen, Tony Orlando & Dawn, and Perry Como, and, and, and...

 

Mom played LP records at home on an enormous High Fidelity system built into a giant bookcase. Dad played 8-track tapes while driving a 20' motorhome all around the US. 

 

Continuing the tradition, my kids are familiar with Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, Metallica, Van Halen...

 

OOPS. I typed the above yesterday, and failed to hit Submit.

I acutally use algebra once in a while, and find that geometry is especially helpful.

 

As for diagramming sentences, when everything first shut down, I joked that, in lieu of sports on TV, we could have live competitions of English teachers diagramming sentences spoken in the various press conferences. That would have been quite a challenge, especially for certain speakers. 

 

I'll see myself out.

When I think of Northern Illinois I think of further North but you're right, that's still way north in Illinois!!

Growing up with all my relatives in Makanda and Flora in southern Illinois, I always thought of Chicago as way north.

Algebra actually came in handy for me.  What I wonder is did anyone ever need to diagram a sentence afterwards? 🧐

It helps with subject/verb agreement, especially if you know where to put the prepositional phrase.  😉

Diagram a sentence? Stranger than that, how many people remember spelling and grammar?

Cruisers seem to be in the stratosphere compared to the people on the street types!

Grammar and spelling make sense, it helps in everyday life.  But drawing out a diagram for a sentence never made any logical sense to me.  I never found a use for it in architecture or construction. 🤔

In all aspects of life, you have to read and write and understand the English language.
