Things are different today, I hear every mother say, cooking fresh food for her husband's such a drag, so she buys an instant cake and she burns a frozen steak, and goes running for the shelter of a mother's little helper and two help her on her way, get her through her busy day

You hear this from every mother? What kind of neighborhood do you live in? Are there no happy folks there at all?

Time and place have much to do with understanding.

As do 60's song lyrics.

I am afraid you have completely lost me. When it comes to songs of that era, I have no clue. I was too busy with a houseful of kids to be listening to music.

Sorry, I was never part of that world. The only time I ever took a mind altering drug was the day I got news that my daughter had brain cancer. I ask for one little pill and they gave me three. I still have two. If I ever find them, they will be going in the trash.

Mind altering drugs and music are two separate things.

One has nothing to do with the other.

You didn't listen to the Stones is cool.

Not all that did used mind altering drugs.

^This^ If it's Beef Wellington from scratch, or beans from a can along side nuked hot dogs, as long as you sit together and share your day it is a successful dining event.
