For the novice in you,you’ll notice the series paying homage to the Hourglass that has helped define the soap for nearly 46-years. Meanwhile, Sherman’s Sporting Goods sounds like a take off from the popular Sherman Oaks section of Los Angeles, while the Mandalay Cafe sounds a little like the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas. We’re also glad to know that our favorite Salemites do indeed still read books, despite the immediate availability through Amazon’s Kindle or Apple’s iPad/iPhone devices. We know some drama will have to be going down there at some point. No one just reads books as  it is still a soap after all.
