When I was a kidof about 10 years old I thought soaps were too mushy! You never would have caught me watching one. Then during Easter vacation 1970, a friend turned me on to "All My Children" Oh I fell in love with the Martins, Tylers and Brents. Especially Phil, Tara and Chuck. They had the best story lines! I'll never forget Phoebe, Mona and Charles Tyler. I was also a big fan of Ryan's Hope and loved hearing Maeve sing "Danny Boy" on St Paddy's. I no longer watch AMC but have the best memories.
