Weekly chats, They started on soaps and Sneak peeks

Hi Suds Buds!

Got a big peeve about your favorite soap? Bumped into your favorite star at the local mall? Heard a great scoop you want to share? Or, if you just want to pop in and meet me, you can do it now, every week, right here at Turtle-Run Online. From now on I'll be hosting a weekly chat every Monday evening. Tonight's chat will begin at 10 PM ET (7 PM PT) in the TRO Soap Suds chat room. We are using a standard xoom chat format at this time. Your browser must be java enabled for it to work. But it's easy. All you do is click on the Soap Suds Chat Room link in the navigation bar on the left of the page, and wait for the java applet chat room to load. Then, enter a User Name. It's the only field you need to fill in. I'll be Top Turtle! Use the same name you use on the message boards, so I'll be able to identify you easily. Or make up a new name, and try to stump me! Either way, I bet we'll have lots of fun. After you select a user name, click on connect, and bingo. You're ready to chat away.

Just so you know, we are in the process of designing and building our very own, very cool, Turtle-Run Chat Room. But for now, xoom's will do. If you have any trouble accessing the chat room, please let us know. Otherwise, I look forward to meeting you tonight at 10 PM eastern time for about an hour. Drop by and say hello.

(Please note: Beginning next Monday, January 17, 2000, we will have our regularly scheduled weekly chat at 7:30 PM ET (4:30 PM PT). That will be the designated chat time from then on! We may even have a surprise guest on occasion. Won't that be fun? Hope to "see" you.)

Guess what? I got the greatest book for Christmas. From Soap Stars to Superstars. What a hoot. Did you know Brad Pitt starred on Another World as a guy named Chris -- for one week in May of 1987? LOL Teri Hatcher played Angelica Clegg on Capitol for a year in 1985. Sigourney Weaver was Avis Ryan on Somerset in l976, and Calista Flockheart (Ally McBeal) had a bit part on Guiding Light as an ambitious teen in 1989. Read all about it in this fun, well-conceived look at how soaps paved the way for many of today's top stars. "Bob the Purple Turtle" gives the book "two tails" up. ;o) Order online from the Turtle Run Store!

TRO will be introducing a new feature in the next few weeks: Sneak Peeks of all the soaps. Stay tuned and find out what's going to happen on your favorite show. More on TRO's Sneak Peaks soon. Till then, here's a sneak peak at what's going to happen on NBC soaps this week:
