Peace and love. Disco forever.The counterculture 1960s and the polyester 1970s have spawned a hot collectible market steeped in nostalgia and relentless television reruns.Collectors include not only Baby Boomers seeking to relive their past but also members of so-called Generation X, still in their 20s.Recent price run-ups in such memorabilia include anything and everything, with the greatest premiums paid for the outlandish or items tied to popular characters. They originally cost little, and it's still possible to hunt some of them up for a song if you know what you're doing.

Now that August has arrived, I'm starting to get the kids ready for going back to school. I'm trying to get them to bed earlier. I'm nagging them to finish their summer reading assignments. And I have the 11-year-old practicing his multiplication and division. The kids are whining that I'm being too mean, but they don't know how easy they have it. I read a recent report from the National Retail Federation that says the average 13-to-17-year old will spend $36.48 on pens, papers, lunch boxes, etc. as they get ready for school.

An extract from the kudzu vine - which grows wild all over the South, and in China and Japan - appears to be effective at reducing the amount of alcohol a person drinks, according to a placebo-controlled study published this spring by researchers at McLean Hospital in Belmont, Mass. The only catch is that the formulation of kudzu that proved effective in the study is not yet available in health food stores, though it may be within a year.

School supplies aren't what they used to be.Noticeably different are the lunch boxes children take to school nowadays. Out are the often rusted, metal lunch boxes with squeaky hinges and pictures of "Fat Albert and the Gang" and "Holly Hobbie."In are space-age, high-tech insulated lunch containers that have pouches to hold juice boxes and milk money, along with lightweight plastic lunch boxes adorned with Fred Flintstone and the Lion King that come with environmentally friendly reusable sandwich holders.

You wouldn't believe the stuff kids tote to school in their lunch boxes. While the rest of us have been worrying about polyunsaturates and dreaming up new ways to bake brie, children have been wolfing down buttered bread with pepperoni, string cheese, cold pizza and -- aack! -- Shark Bites.The latter are jelly candies in the shape of fish. In swapping power at the cafeteria, they're right up there with chocolate chip cookies, potato chips and fruit leather in the shapes of turtles, horses and planes.
