Long before Blogs, and not long after computers were invented I kept what was known as a diary.I started in 1986 when I was 13 and I thought I'd throw a few quotes out there for fun, and possibly to jog some memories, although this will probably be strictly for my own records and amusement.If the post title is "Old School" it means a post like this...
