    "The good old days," is such a great statement. It is really nice to hear older people talk about their lives before a time that I have not known. Some older than me would refer to "the good old days," as maybe an entire decade or certain period in time. I would love to know what it would have been like in the 60's, but I don't think I would have wanted to live during that time. I would have loved to see real knights, and kings, and queens with large castles. I would have liked to experience man...

Many benefits come out of drinking water. First, it quenches one's thirst much better than ...
