The 70's was the decade of greatest growth for me. It represented the period I entered as an uncertain teen from a poor family with a fast-food job struggling to get an education, not knowing if I had the math skills to make it in chemistry. I exited the '70's as chief chemist of process development research at a subsidiary of Dow Chemical as well as a State Director in the Jaycees. I played in the 1976 U.S. Chess Open, played 1st base and outfield on a men's softball team, and coached my younger brother's rec league baseball team. I taught my brother to play guitar and he's had a notable part-time career as a bass guitarist every since - he's playing classic 70's-80's rock in a band called "Switch" at Henny Mack's in Glen Burnie, MD on Saturday night if anyone's in the area.

Of course, the 1970's also had the best 50-foot-long billboard:
