It’s time for another installment in my 3 Things series.

Here’s the list so far.  I started with the year 1965, because that’s the first year I can remember 3 things about.


Other than starting the 9th grade, here are 3 things I remember about 1974.

ddlp 1)  My sister was in her last year of graduate school at Vanderbilt, in Nashville, TN.  I remember visiting with my mom.  A few years later, I would follow her to graduate school at Vanderbilt.

2)  I remember buying David Bowie’s Diamond Dogs LP and listening to it over and over and over.  I’m not a huge Bowie fan, but that record was great then, and it’s great now.

3)  I remember seeing all the Watergate coverage on the news.  It was a different time then, with no internet and only a few television channels.  We weren’t bombarded by information all day long, so we actually looked forward to the evening news.  I haven’t watched the evening news in close to a decade.

Is there anyone else around old enough to remember 1974?  If so, what do you remember the most?
