Throwback Thursday! Do You Remember the 80's?

Throwback Thursday posts are a time to share nostalgia, a chance to look back on the past, and maybe nudge your memory, courtesy of Do You Remember. We post every Thursday and as often as possible, include prizes, contests or giveaways.

Do You Remember the 80's? You grew up in the 80's if you were totally into Dynasty or General Hospital, Michael J. Fox made looking and acting conservative kinda cool, Michael Jackson taught you who was bad and thrilled you, Bon Jovi had you Livin' On A Prayer, ET asked to borrow the phone, The Breakfast Club was your favorite John Hughes movie, you asked, “What would MacGyver do?” when you were in a sticky situation, you knew The Terminator would "be back," Olivia Newton-John made you want to get physical, and Big Hair was in!
