Motown and the music of the 60’s encompassed a golden age of music. Surround yourself with the key Motown artists: Marvin Gaye, Smokey Robinson, The Four Tops, and The Jackson 5.
Also don’t forget the music of Stax out of Memphis and Muscle Shoals Alabama. This would include Otis Redding, Albert King, Sam And Dave, Booker T. and the MG’s, and Isaac Hayes to name a few. These artists ran parallel in time to Motown’s golden age and produced music of equal quality.
Oh yeah, and Michael Jackson is always a safe bet too.
A Toyota or a Honda may be cheaper and might even be more reliable. But they wont ever give you the satisfaction that driving a German car will provide. So when in doubt, go German.
*Kids, Dad here. When I thought of this rule I was an Audi owner. I will say this German cars are so fun to drive. But, most people cannot work on them, so the maintenance is so expensive, terrifying even. I used to shudder when something would go wrong because I knew I would be out a lot of money.
So buy German cars when you can afford to fix them.
And reread some again at different times in your life. You’ll learn different things from them.
Your spouse and children will thank you for it someday.
Dad here, I never bought them and regretted it. Luckily your mom has all of my years so somehow I beat the system. They seem lame when you are young, but the older you get the better it becomes to have them.
This is a rule passed down to us, and to you, from our mothers (your grandmothers). We like it, too, particularly because they still look good from following it.
Also, SUNSCREEN. Always wear at least SPF 30 or higher. You’ll most likely be pale. Don’t feel sad, look at it this way, in the olden days being pale was a sign of being rich! See Kids! Class Entitlement!
But seriously though, skin cancer sucks. It’s killed a lot of people, it cost the Eagles the shot at a Super Bowl because it killed our defensive coordinator. So, put some sunscreen on.
