Providing all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

When I was growing up in the 70's Proctor and Gamble (P&G) produced many of the bear necessities of life. Peanut butter, cooking oil, detergent, and many other laundry and soap products. they even produced the first Soap Opera, "The Guiding Light". That Soap Opera, and the others that P&G produced promoted those products, and made loyal customers of homemakers like my Granny, Bergit Hinkle, who had Ivory Soap in the bathroom; Ivory liquid by the kitchen sink; Tide, Cheer and Clorox in the laundry room; and she was one of the choosy mother's who chose Jif to feed her grandchildren when they came over.
"As The World Turns" will end it's run, and with it the era of almost 74 years of P&G Soap Operas on radio and television. Sleazy talk shows and cheesy game shows are taking the place of what has become known as the Daytime Drama. Interestingly enough, on May 1, as I was graduating from DWU, veteran actress Helen Wagner, who played on both The first and the last P&G Soap Operas Died at age 91. It's sad that we will never see her on TV again, even her worst storyline was better than anything Springer, Oprah or that pant load, Dr. Phil, dreamed up.
So long Helen! We on this World will miss you as Nancy! I hope you are in a better "World" that will never be cancelled!
