When I Was Living in SaltLake City in the ’70s The feds were offering courses on computers while they paid you a weekly check. I Did Not Swallow The worm. Darn, My not having an education has been an emotional disadvantage for me. But Now I Have a Beautiful One bedroom overlooking the ocean for $170.00 a month under Mercy housing that got me out from living in my van for 6 years one block from the Giants Baseball Park now my dreams of being a Dj on twitch are coming true. I Maybe 71 but

I look like I am in my 50’s.  Thank You John for turning me on to Retrospect. I Get the impression That Retrospect is your baby.

Love and Peace,   Dj discOworm

    Glad you got some housing. And I think you must have some technical skill in order to DJ.

  2. Welcome to Retro, DJ!

    Keep up those positive vibes and may all your dreams come true!

    DJ, I like how impressionistic your stories are, like a montage of disco songs blending each into the next. Glad you found good housing and the Twitch gig. Retrospect has been a group effort shared by my co-founders Patti and Susan and our heirs and successors Suzy, Laurie, Marian, and Barbara. Glad you found it!

      John, You Still Look like A friend I use To Know. Thank You for This write-up. I keep adding on as I search my memory cells. It does blow me away how I remember all these people so long ago. It was meant to be. Thank you again for Retrospect. Dj discOworm
