There probably still are 50-year-old things around the house that recall the 1960s.

How about that pair of ugly but comfortable Birkenstocks? And that packet of M&Ms tucked into the kitchen cupboard?

A constant reminder of that decade are those big square brown trucks UPS still uses as is your color television set, which came into its own in the mid ‘60s. Alex Trebek and “Jeopardy” began their amazing run about the same time as “Star Trek” ventured “where no man has gone before.”

The Big Mac and Pop-Tarts emerged during the decade along with a healthier counterpart, Gatorade.

Both James Bond and The Beatles popped into our culture then along with the pill, that planted seeds for the later sexual revolution.
