Before streaming and cable offered thousands of channels and infinite choices, television variety shows gave us music, comedy, and entertainment of all kinds. Without DVRs to capture the broadcasts, we gathered in front of the TV set at show time and might have watched Ed Sullivan or Carol Burnett with the whole family. Think back … about your favorite variety shows. What do you miss most about them? Would you watch these types of shows now? Would young people enjoy them today?

Then there was the other kind of “parking" - with a romantic interest in a secluded spot. Think back … to your experiences in driving or romance, as a teen or an adult. Share your parking stories forward.

While setbacks are unavoidable, it’s possible to make lemonade from them, or perhaps recognize that a lemon can be a gift in disguise. Think back … about a past negative circumstance that you or someone you know turned into something positive or later realized was good after all. Share your Lemons to Lemonade stories forward.
