Happy 4th Of July!

And it's a REPEAT day-- Johnny, Kate and Sonny. WHY OH WHY can't they show a classic old 4th of July picnic in the park!!? *sigh*


I missed yesterday because I was visiting my cousin in the hospital.  Everything is fine but we decided the last minute to go out. So, No GH. I saw rumblings on Twitter btw, that people were going to boycott the show Thurs/Friday due to certain  "kisses". 
NOW GET A GRIP. How stupid is this?? Called cutting your nose off to spite your face.  You can't have anything if we have no show. It's called being a loyal fan. Kinda like when your team is trading people. 

What are you doing today? All my son wants is "an American meal"... LOL.  McDonalds? :) No..RIBS. Which I don't like. So I'll have something else. Scotch? hee hee... 

Have a good one!!

Karen- there are some good 4ths from GH online. I've recently seen 1980-88. '80 and '83 are tops.

I have been watching "General Hospital" for 20 years as of this summer and not one good "Fourth of July" episode comes to my mind.

"Guiding Light," on the other hand now THAT was the show that used Independence Day to excellent effect and my mind is full of Fireworks memories from the residents of Springfield.

(I miss that show!)

Karen, I got in through the link you gave me, thanks!

Happy July 4 everyone!! I HAD WUBS withdrawal, not being able to get on the site for a few days, did I miss anything? Not being here, I don't know if anyone mentioned this, but did anyone hear Cray Heather tell Steven Lars that her column was dreck?!! So funny, that is Yiddish for s--t, I think my2Cents is Jewish, don't know if anyone else is besides us.

Thankfully I was having fun in the sun with friends and fam yesterday and missed the repeat ep. I'm not a fan of the holiday repeats. They really should use that time to show a classic epi from years back so that the newbies and "tween crowd" understand the history of GH.

And as far as the "tween crowd", mostly the ones saying they will boycott the show because of the "kisses"...give me a break. Twitter has a been a mess all week due to these little immature whiney brats/tweens - that is clearly what they are. Some are as young as 12 some as old as 18, some are just mean bitter people who like to swear and call names and just be downright disrespectful. They clearly have no concept of what a soap opera is and how it works. They seem to have that "got to have it now" mentality we're seeing with the younger generation. So sad.

I for one am looking forward to the kissing drama. It's about time we had love and intrigue on GH, it's been far, far too long!

Hope everyone had a fabulous 4th! Even the Wubs Hub! lol!

AntJoan - I've heard "dreck" used around camp by some of our international staff and have been told it means "rubbish" or "trash". Damn that cray-cray Heather! She's too funny!

I can't think of a good 4th of July episode for GH either? I know there was a carnival a couple of times? Was there a shooting at one of them? Days used to do a really good 4th of July, but I don't think they have done one once in awhile. I do remember Guiding Light's 4th when my mom used to watch it. The Bauers, right?

I think some people are saying they will boycott this show because of the kissing because they think if they do this, the writers will pull the kissing. Not going to happen. Yes, I don't like that they are going down this same road again, but I can't do anything about it. Jake's death was the one big mistake that I thought the writers did badly and I was close to not watching after that, but I am a sucker for my GH. No matter how crappy the writing is.

Hey, I'm back, too! Power came back on yesterday afernoon. AntJoan, you are right about dreck, but it can mean junk. Funny that she used that word. I'll have to catch up on SoapNet this weekend. Doesn't sound like I missed too much.

LOL My father... who died nearly 30 years ago... used dreck all the time. And he was Pennsylvania Dutch through and through.

Finola Hughes' British accent is so thick at times. On today's July 5 episode she said, "Moniker and Edward"

when talking about Monica and Edward. Cute.

and sometimes Finola's accent is missing. It used to be much more noticeable. Same with Jax with his Australian accent. Kind of calmed down over the years.
