Past, I'd like to introduce you to the present.
"Letters Home relies on contributions. We are nothing without readers who are willing to share their stories or respond to others. We don’t think we’re alone in wondering what’s happened to our childhood homes since we left. Or in wanting to share an important event that occurred there – from a birthday party to a marriage proposal, a secret revealed to a lie concealed.
Write a letter to the present occupant (even if it’s still family), the owner of the store that now stands on that lot, whatever or whoever might be there now, and share your memory. Ask them to respond with their own story and photo. Their letter and photo will then be added to your post." How Letters Home works?

Virtual Space Mountain
! Wheeeee! (Click on the second video where you sit in front. What are you, a wuss?)
Real video just can't
do Space Mountain justice, but it does a pretty good job of capturing some other rides. Feel like revisiting some original Magic Kingdom rides without leaving home? Well here you go... Pirates
, Mr. Toad
, Small World
, Haunted Mansion
, Tiki Room
, Thunder Mountain
, Star Tours
, Indiana Jones
, Alice in Wonderland
, The Jungle Cruise
, Roger Rabbit
, the late Swiss Family Robinson Treehouse
and a bunch of people covered in lightbulbs dancing to the world's most excruciatingly annoying synthesized music
. During your virtual day at the park, please just remember to watch out for Goofy. That dude is nothing but a messed up troublemaker
. And don't forget... the parking trams do not go to aisles B as in Bambi & C as in Cinderella.

. It's more than a photo collection and group of essays about his parents' failures with interior decoration; it's a nostalgic website brought about by Wes Clark's impulse to let his children know what it was like growing up
during a more innocent age.

Let's talk about childhood toys.
A wander down memory lane, past care-bears and etch-a-sketches and barrel-o-monkeys. Warning: this site resulted in the bidding up of auctions for Weebles "Tree House"
action sets. I'd forgotten how marvelously upright they remained until I whipped their little egg-like bodies out of a second-story window onto concrete. What was your favorite childhood toy? Do you still have it, or do you have the sudden need to re-acquire it?
