The Bold and the Beautiful
ALL THINGS RELATED

If a year ago someone bet me that a modern-day soap opera would not only put their African-American characters in a front burner storyline that was deeply entrenched in social issues, which had nothing to do with the color of one's skin, race or ethnicity, I'd owe that person plenty of money right about now.

Although I must admit that I may not always know the answers to their blind items right off the bat, I've long found myself fascinated with Soap Opera Digest's "Stuff We Know (And Shouldn't Tell You)" mini-section. Why you ask? Because it's no fun to be told something in print and not have anyone to talk about it with! What about you? Want to take a gander about who/what the blind items are all about this week?
Nominees for the 42nd Annual Daytime Emmy Awards in select categories were announced earlier today on CBS' "The Talk." All in ABC's "General Hospital" is leading the pack with 28 nominations.

In life you set goals for yourself, or at least you try to. You even have expectations for yourself that you hope will eventually get fulfilled. In my case, over the years I had set a specific list of goals that included certain expectations as they related to one another. Earlier this year, I officially crossed one of the major things off that list. It wasn't easy as it had plagued me for nearly a decade. A stepping stone you might call it. I took up something many years ago that eventually became impossible to maintain on a full-time basis. I decided to do it part-time. I went from part-time to being very part-time. Later you could say I dropped it completely in order to concentrate on the things that either gave me personal joy and fulfillment (this site) or put several well earned dollars in my pocket. I imagine I'm not the only one out there who's ever had pull some sort of double duty in their lifetime. Right?
