Hi Suds Buds:

Fall back – Spring ahead.  I am one of those people who suffers from a mild case of SAD  (seasonal affective disorder). I need light.  Once we turn those clocks back and it starts getting dark at 5 PM, I’d just as soon shut up shop and go home to bed. I could never live in Alaska in the winter time. Can you imagine 24 hours of night?  Ahhh!  24 hours of day sounds much more appealing to me, but then, there are disorders associated with that as well. Like not feeling the need to sleep because it’s light out all the time.  Guess there is no pleasing me. LOL  Soon as we turn the clocks back I start counting down the days til December 21st (the shortest day of the year).  Once wet get over that hump, I know springtime is on its way!

Let’s see a soap character suffer the symptoms of a SAD condition.  That would be an out of the ordinary “character tic” that could prove informative to viewers.  You may suffer from SAD and not even know it.  For more info on this condition which can go from feeling blue in the wintertime, to severe debilitating depression, visit this British website http://www.sada.org.uk/index.htm

For the past few days, southern CA has been threatened by firestorms.  Over 1500 firefighters are on the front lines battling the blaze.  Those men and women are true heros.  Let’s see a soap character who is a fireman.  Can’t you just picture the muscles, the tan, the big heart?  Naturally, he’d have to have a Dalmatian puppy named Spot.  Get with the program soap writers.  After the heroism of firefighters at Ground Zero, and the heroic acts they perform every day to keep us safe from the wrath of any blaze, why haven’t we seen a character who is a fireman, or firewoman, for that matter?  

What do you think? Let me know in the Criticize the Critic folder on the Soapdom Message Boards.

Speaking of the fires, Soapdom has learned that The Young and the Restless star Lyndsy Fonseca (Colleen) lives in an area of the LA basin that is in the path of the fire.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her, along with our hopes that her home is spared.
