I guess you could say I have quite a few “flower children” on my Facebook friends list, and that’s cool.  I find myself on the same wavelength with a large percentage of them.

If it weren’t for the fact that I have so many “flower children” on my friends list, I might have totally spaced the fact that we’re in the midst of the 43rd anniversary of the Woodstock festival, during which 400,000 people descended on Max Yasgur’s farm near White Lake, New York.

How does one forget the anniversary of an event that changed the history of popular music, and — despite the protests of local residents including signs that said “Buy No Milk. Stop Max’s Hippy Music Festival” — prompted Max himself to speak so highly of his multitude of “guests?”

That’s where I get by with a little help from my friends.
