    from your childhood that you would bring back. What would they be? Preferably things that aren't available nowadays, although it could just be stuff that you remember that would be just weird for an adult to enjoy (heh heh)......

    I would choose....

    1) Pacers - like minty Opal Fruits (Starburst), but they had green and white stripes

    2) Dallas - need I say more?

    3) Pound Notes - made you feel like you had LOADSA money.....lol!

    Can you think of any stuff like that? Could be toys, tv programmes, fashion, music, whatever....lets reminisce (Sp?).....hee hee

    I remember Pacers! They were spearminty weren't they?

    I'd like to bring back shoulder pads, backcombed hair and flourescent clothing. In this outfit, you would be safe to walk home in the dark as everyone would see you froma mile away!

    Also like to bring back Scott and Charlene in Neighbours.... but then, who in their right mind wouldn't?
