Firstly. I want to give a big hug out to Michael.
His interviews are genius.. He asks the questions we want to hear the answers to.
And– here, right her is my favorite soap hangout with Michael and his good stuff 🙂
And– the freedom he aloweles us..

My favorite interview was with Mal..
I liked hearing his ideals and simply being introduced to Mal; the man behind the curtain.

Y&R is on a roll to glory.. I am enjoying Y&R very much for the 1st time in a very long time.
I’m looking forward to the next day every day, and that is a very good thing..

(( I recall the year I slept through Y&R, no longer! thanks Mal ..

oh gosh… I’ve tried to pinpoint when I left.. and that never would be my ways and means… @Y&R after Sharon and Adam… came back from New Orleans… and they broke up.. I was turned.. and had it. up to the gills… that’s when GH entered the picture. alas.. i’m so keyed up @letting ABC / Disney / GH know when a travesty is being dealt… Frank Valentini must be held accountable…

he is knowingly and in our face laying waste a great show

General Hospital

The year(s) I slept through Y&R were the years Jean and Shelly ..
The Queens of Snooze..
((then GH took them in and GH became snooze land and Shelly still has her sleeper hold on GH ..

Happy 45th!


Happy 45th I may be running fast with the pace but hey it is still with us still hope this Jack not being a Abbott is a twist not true after all!


I have been so excited and nervous these past 10 days, I was actually scared to watch the Y&R…..I subscribe to CBS All ACCESS …..MAL Young has brought the life back into the Y&R….who knew but the Brita know how to write story… not believe anything for the internet, and stay away from the soap spoilers..they are just garbage…..I love the 45th A. Shows, i have only seen one show…..though…..Peter Bergman deserves the Emmy for this year and for next year too…….he is on fire, who knew he could be so mean and funny at the same time……,I just love Marla Adams.too.kudos……to the cast…I could never ever be mad at Eric Braden.. Victor N is the ultimate actor…..he deserves a Lifetime Emmy award for just being a man’s man..Eric Braden is the best of the best.
