    Oh,yeah, my T….agreed!! Love MM.
    I have so many favorite moments, times, scenes…..but, as a little girl ( twelve, maybe?) with dreams in her heart; my favorite was that special moment when Nick said to Sharon:
    “Every time you walk into a room, my heart does somersaults.
    Every time you laugh, I get so much joy from that. And the way your eyes sparkle…..
    …..joy and sparkle. What else could a man ask for? You are so beautiful. No man will ever love any woman, the way I love you.”….
    Yeah, I know….it has, sort of, gone awry…but, if truth be told, I don’t think Nick ever loved anyone else as he STILL loves Sharon…..they are the love of each other’s lives. I know this sticks to su0000′s craw, LOL ( love you anyway, SuzieQ)…..shhhh, don’t tell anyone, Timmmy….but su does not like Sharon….did you know that????
    Anyway….I wrote that quote down and put it in my little box of dreams, as I called it—I still have it…..seriously!!
    I forced my husband to say those words when we exchanged vows…. just kidding, T. HaHa. ( only this last part).

    Hi Celia, I LOVE Nick and Sharon together, they have been one of my favorite couples on the show and IMO they belong together…

    Timmm replied

    I agree with you about Sharon and Nick. They will always end up together and belong together. No matter what obstacles stand in each others way, they will prevail. There are tons of books on relationship advice. Save your money! Here is the secret. If you want to be in a successful relationship you only have to do one thing or I should say be one thing, your spouses best friend. Thats it. Best friends will laugh together, cry together and always be truthful with each other.

    Celia replied

    Of course, my T…..although Sharon and Nick have parted ways sooo many times before, they remained best friends—-the friendship never died, and they always find their way back , unfailingly.
    I am glad they are on that road again.
    However, I hope they don’t end up like Nikki and Victor, where he sleeps with prison doctors on his death-bed, and Nikki with construction-work-babies. Ha!!
    My husband is my best friend, as I am his…..there’s nothing we don’t share. I was six when I first laid eyes on him and he ten…. he hardly paid attention to me, except to tease me… he used to call me a pest.
    ……Aaannd, I was sixteen when we started dating ( with my father’s permission, LOL)…..
    I must admit it’s rare…..ergo, I cross my fingers. Trust is the key, with a sense of humor.
    Oh, how I wish Y&R would have a long-term, long-lasting couple with a healthy relationship….someone very young, such as Maddie with Reed ( if they start seeing each other again)…..or Faith could be sorased and paired with a newcomer. But, it wouldn’t be a soap if couples stayed together forevermore.

    The Brook sisters were my favorites along with Nina Arvensan as Cassandra Rawlins, I wish they would of put clips of them in video, I also loved Lance and Lucas Prentiss..I just wish the show was the way it use to be with directing, production, writing and the beautiful classic background music, OH, DID I SAY THAT?

    Reply

    Celia replied

    Oh, yes, Kevin C….All these other men/women come and go; but Sharon and Nick always gravitate towards each other. They love each other—the kind of love that never ceases to beat.
    This is the couple that will always survive, Kevin……how many years has it been? Sharon and Nick have withstood the worst life could have possibly thrown at them ; yet, they’ve survived….come hell or high water.

    Kevin C replied

    Right on Celia…I loved it when there story started, from that mean Matt Clark played so well by both actors Eddie Cibrian and Rick Hearst.

    Celia replied

    Yes, Kevin….everything about Sharon’s life keeps me enthralled. I truly think that Sharon Case is underestimated.
    She has taken a ‘beating’ and still running. …like the Energizer Bunny…LOL…. love Sharon to pieces!!

    Kevin C replied

    I agree with you Celia, Love Sharon Case and I think she is a fantastic actress.

    It is amazing how the brass at CBS can remember the show’s rich history when it suits their purposes– but day to day story line often rewrites history and characters that should be on show are forgotten.

    Very good point Mary SF and I agree with you…

    You know what the show can give me for watching all these ears? an answer to what happened to Lisa Mansfield after she got away with locking Brad up in that cage for all that time so many years ago. I hated that she never got caught.

    For me, when Paul’s son jumped out of a window and killed himself, soon thereafter was a scene with the camera looking under the sidewalk in a drain which had a knife lying behind the grate. Then a person wearing a witch’s hat crossed the screen.

    Did I dream that?

    Celia replied

    Do you mean Arturo, su? He is a stud, for sure….but a cad!
    Hold on to your umbrella….a storm is brewing. A triangle is afoot. Arturo, Nikki and Abs…..will Nikki backdown?
    Hmmm ….who to chose, a rich B “grand-maman”, or a rich B “demoiselle”?….. or both? Variety is the spice of life. I wouldn’t know, LOL.

    Reply

    Celia replied

    PS.
    Whom to choose, that is……sorry….
    Did you notice Abby’s hungry eyes as she checked out Arturo’s backside, su?
    This will be something else where the hostility will fester between the Newmans and the Abbotts.
    Poor Abby’s fealty is stuck between a rock and a hardplace. What a quandary!!

    Wished they dedicate one show to cover a decade– do it for a week and we see a capsule of the entire history in 5 days. A Herculean task for anyone.

    LOVE that idea Ron…

    I know, right, Ron? I’d love that. …..episodes before my time (especially) would be a great gift for me……salivating, here. LOL.

    Ron replied

    I would think someone at CBS could put an intern on the project, maybe even involve a former star from any given decade who stuck around long enough to know the stories… Lee Phillips Bell is still alive– and family members, I am sure, could offer suggestions. A celebration of 45 years shouldn’t just be a Walnut Grove Reunion with just a few guests. Hopefully someone will get going on this kind of project in time for the 50th!

    We’re visiting Syracuse this weekend, so we’ll at least be in the same state, my friend.

    Celia replied

    You have brilliant ideas, Ron….I do believe that TPTB should start reading these comments—so many light-bulbs would go off.
    Enjoy your trip…..my brother-in-law went to Syracuse University….love the city. It is close to Port Charles. You must visit. LOL.

    Reply

    Ron replied

    IT was a perfect weekend– wonderful campus, great downtown (food!), and very friendly people. Should my son choose this school, we’ll check out Port Charles!

    Celia replied

    @Ron.
    Big step for your son, Ron……Giant step for you and your wife; if he’s your first child going away to College, that is. Big adjustment for all family members. I know my mother had a hard time when my brother ( her firstborn) went to University. It got easier, Ron…..there are six of us.
    ….Glad you enjoyed the trip……next time I visit Toronto, I must make a point of making a detour to Port Charles, myself…..

    Love this show but I know what happens today not sure I want to see this the social issue is fine but the two characters MY is using it is plain wrong,

    Oh, my Lord!!!! JT, as a wife-beater , never crossed my mind. My heart is still beating a thousand miles per hour…..that’s how much the scene impacted me….quelle surprise!!
    I think Kay had suggested JT was doing drugs—-prescription or otherwise—-I agreed with her.
    Are his heart pills responsible for this?
    I asked my husband, but he said : absolutely not……so, what’s up? Is he mixing drugs? Is it a mental issue? Most abusers do struggle with either a neurological or psychological problem. Which will it be for JT?
    No wonder Mac filed for divorce with full custody….he’s violent.
    I must applaud Thad for his supreme acting—-very credible….I was actually scared for Victoria.
    I congratulate the acting….not to be confused with the scourge of domestic violence—never that.
    I am wondering if Y&R has ever tackled the issue….cannot recall….must ask my grandmother.

    Hello sweet Cee, definitely saw this coming JT is a ticking time bomb ….
    His constant criticism of Victoria has been escalating weekly,.. His pressure
    points R being pushed beyond containment, Paul wanting immediate results,
    divorce proceedings, custody issues, most likely losing his overseas job,
    feeling beholden to Victoria for coming to his rescue ….Truth be told he had
    no job or home after Cain and he cut ties, so he’s feeling lots of resentment
    towards her …. NO EXCUSES EVER FOR A MAN USING HIS FISTS ON A
    WOMAN!!! This will not end well…JT is on Victor’s radar and now he’s on
    hidden camera verbally & physically assaulting his daughter…Does he have
    a death wish??? Stay warm & toasty w/ all the snow fall expected in UR
    area, later sweetness.

    Hi, my lady Fanny,
    So good to hear from you. Yes, JT is on the verge of exploding…….I think it’s more than all the pressures which have befallen him.
    You think Victor set up surveillance cameras at Victoria’s house? Wow!!!! If that’s the case, JT is fried turkey.
    Of course, you’re right….enough of the male dominance on women by using fists or mind-control.
    …..or sexual abuse, albeit, there are women who are very abusive. We don’t hear about it because men are too enbarrassed to come forward.
    Yes, my Fanny….we were hit for the fourth time in less than a month. It snowed all day and all night.
    Last week our pergola and patio portico collapsed. This morning a pine tree fell on the house. My husband had patients to see, so he had to leave. There’s a crew to assess damage….not much can be done until snow melts. But, it looks like the leafy tips are feathering the side of the house….the naked eye of this inexperience look-seer ( LOL) does not think there’s any damage. It remains to me seen.
    Thank God for generators…..albeit, all electrical wiring, cable etc arevunderground….so, the impact did not disturb power. I can watch my soaps, LOL.
    Later, my lady….love you!!

    CeeCee Dearest, Thank goodness you are all safe and sound…

    Celia replied

    Yes, Kevin, LOL. I was born in NY—The Lower Fork of Long Island—Suffolk County.
    My Dutch Ancestors go back to the early days…..
    I can’t wait for Spring planting, my friend–I like to get my hands in the dirt, LOL. We are all ready for warmer westher.
    One good thing about Long Island, as Martha’s Vineyard, the snow in spring does not last…it melts pretty quickly, albeit the snow was neverending this past month.
    Thank you for your kindness and lovely words. Much love.

    Shay replied

    Oh my word, CeeCee!!!! I was wondering if the “God of Thundersnow” had wreaked his havoc upon your home and hearth…now I know the answer! Just glad everyone is safe…Been busy setting up a new computer and attending to other “real life” stuff, but have been meaning to check in with you and say hello! Hope all else is well with you and yours and that we can soon again meet up in “Port Charles”…I haven’t watched GH for a few weeks now….it’s just been boring me to tears, so recently online recaps have had to suffice. Oh well….Later!

    Celia replied

    Hi, Shay…again, welcome…
    You’ve been a busy bee, eh?
    Let me tell ya….it has been a harrowing month. We built our house six years ago in the Flying Point Area… there are existing trees—some old trees spread around the property….too much water, too much snow….the tree uprooted. Scary! I think about the children…so, many of said trees will be felled for safety sake.
    The structure ouside over the patio could not sustain the snow either. We will not rebuild another…too perilous to even contemplate.
    You must watch GH, Shay….your favorite is acting the schoolgirl, again…not as the mature woman she is.
    I am so disappointed with the turn Alexis is once again taking. We all know TPTB will ‘join’ her and Julian in unholy matrimony for the second time….it is sickening to watch.
    So, now she has led Julian to believe that she and Finn are in united bliss. Why can she not make it easier for herself, if she were true to herself, and avoid him? Aren’t there any other bistros (or whatever Charlie’s is) in town? Why does she congregate there?
    All of them are acting like High Schoolers, including your beloved Anna, LOL. She is a strong, secure, smart woman….I don’t even recognize Anna, any more.
    Other than Mike and Nelle, the stories go around in circles in PC….seeing Sonny and Carly on a daily basis is becoming overwhelming.
    And, I am in no way interested in Faison post-mortem….. especially, Peter. He hasn’t taken root with me.
    I find Spinelli’s sleuthing viscerally a’rumbling. I know you like him; the character is too enervating. I don’t feel the attraction, even when speaking in his most dulcet tones.
    I care not about Jason’s “imprisonment” in that makeshift Russian hospital….not unless it bears some kind of fruit…such as, Helena is at the bottom of the debacle; having partnered-up with Faison.
    The story is passe, the more the writers dance around it, the staler it becomes. Stop lingering….
    Soon, bella!!

    Hi Celia, THANK YOU for that info on where you born…I have always find it interesting to talk with people and to know where they are from…BTW, which is your favorite soap?

    You’re welcome, Kevin. I am the same way….I’m a people’s people, and thanks to Mr. Fairman, we get to meet many interesting personalities here, striking some friendships.
    I am very curious by nature, just as you are…..
    I can tell you one thing….I don’t have the typical New Yorker’s accent….LOL.
    My favorite soap has always been and always will be Y&R…..then Another World, AMC and OLTL…..I enjoyed Passions for its off-the-wall, amusing storylines and characters….especially Timmy, RIP.

    Celia replied

    Oh, and DOOL, Kevin…LOL….how could I forget Days!!
