Focusing On The Things That Keep Us Watching

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane With Baby Danny On Board

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

Last year on this very day, my family and I were in North Carolina, trying to get a feel for what might be our future home, and I was doing that while being  desperately frustrated over the fact that Sam had just given birth to Danny and I wouldn’t be catching up until we we back in Jersey!

Now, a year later, it’s even more frustrating to catalog all of the things we’ve been through as JaSam fans since, and heartbreaking to face what we are left with from the once epic possibilities for the new Quartermaine/Cassadine heir. *sigh*

But alas, GH may not be giving us anything to celebrate anymore, but our vidders certainly have! This week’s Drive is all about Baby Danny, and the little time he had with both his parents! Happy Birthday, Little Guy! You made our dream come true…shortlived as it was!

This Drive’s For You, Stud Muffin!

A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…With The Couple Who’s Still Number One

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

I don’t know about you, but nothing happening on GH right now, and definitely not on Y&R, could satisfy the void I am feeling for JaSam! I find myself battling my insomnia with their vids until I am convinced that I didn’t imagine the magic they shared!

While watching some vids this past week, I decided to honor one of the vidders who helped keep me sane through my last JaSam withdrawals, circa 2007-08. I remember feeling pretty hopeless about a JaSam future back then, as even Steve was saying at his PA’s that he thought Jason and Sam were done for good. Yet, any time I saw one of this vidder’s creations, I felt hope creeping right back in to my cold little heart.

I realized that once again, this time, her vids helped me with this sense of loss I’ve been feeling about our couple, and so she deserves a little bit of recognition for her amazing talent and outstanding efforts on each incredible vid.  My hope is that her vids will do for each of you what they did for me – TWICE…and that they’ll keep us from giving up on the possibility of reliving the magic we all fell in love with. Vampires and Genoa City Be Damned! 

I personally would like to thank jasamarenumberone for each of her fantastic vids! She has such a keen vision for how she wants to tell each unique story of her vids, and she nails it each time! There are so many more where these came from…when this Sunday Drive is over, go subscribe to her channel and check out all of her others! You are gonna love them all!

Let’s get going…

“Lying Naked On The Floor”


“When I’m Gone”

“Come On Closer”



“Crazy For This Girl”

“Hanging By A Moment”


“Stay With Me”

“Let’s Get It On”

“Make You Feel My Love”

“All I Want Is You”

“Hold It Against Me”

“Sweetest Sin”


And…who could ever forget this gem? “Kisses – No Music”

Wasn’t that AMAZING? 

I could drive in circles all day if it meant reliving these memories!


Let’s remember what brought us all together, and let’s refuse to let that bond slip away! I would miss you all too much!



A BEHIND SCHEDULE Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Morning, GHers…or for those on the East Coast…Ice Pops!

I am so sorry for the late post, I was almost done posting around 2 a.m. last night when I realized that I had to plug in the charger for my laptop. I was too warm and cozy to go downstairs to get it, so I figured that I’d finish up in the morning, after seeing my hubby off to work.

Well, I saw my hubby off to work at 5, cleaned up and did the dishes from breakfast, and then went to my office to get the charger. That’s when I remembered that I’d taken my bag to a meeting, and left it in my husband’s car. The car he’d just left to work in.

So, here I am…late, but ready to finish posting the last two vids and hit PUBLISH. . .  To be fair, snowy weather in the northeast usually means delays on mass transit. 🙂

I was so happy to see so many JaSam vids added this week…it confirms my belief that for us JaSam fans, we can’t just get them out of our system or let them go. I think it’s beautiful that we all keep sharing this common love of all things JaSam. I will hold on to that for as long as I can, because it means I get to hold on to all of you. 🙂

Let’s go…

Thanks to all the vidders who still find inspiration in the JaSam Love Story already told to bring us new vids and keep us together in some way. I appreciate all they do…and each new vid brings a smile to my face, even when it brings a tear to my eye.

Have a great rest of your Sunday…




A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…On The BRIGHT SIDE Of The Road

Good Sunday morning, GHers!

We are away for my birthday weekend, so I want you guys to know how much my family loves you guys and respects our “connection.” By now, you guys all know that we have a “No Electronics” rule when we are on a family getaway…the kids can’t be on their smartphones, iPods, tablets, etc. the whole time, and neither can we. The only “FaceTime” allowed is our own. However, when we got in from dinner tonight, the kids turned to me and asked, “Aren’t you going to blog?” My hubby gave me the look that said he knew it was important, and so here I am. 🙂 (In all fairness, I already had most of the vids chosen before we left the house)

This week, we are riding on The Bright Side Of The Road, because even though there isn’t much “bright” stuff going on for us, I was thinking as I watched some of the vids this week, that we are so damned lucky to have experienced nine years of this Love Story together! Whether we watch a vid made yesterday, or a vid made six years ago, we can be sure of one thing: JaSam is INCOMPARABLE! So let’s enjoy the fact that watching them can still evoke such strong emotions in us, and that we still have dedicated vidders who take the time to honor their Love Story!

I have no doubt you will all enjoy their work as much as I did. . .

Are you seeing The Bright Side now?

This was the couple we fought and held on for…and no matter what has happened, or what will happen…they were totally worth it.

Let’s hold on to that. 🙂

Love you guys!


A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane…For Auld Lang Syne

Happy Sunday morning, GHers!

It’s the last Sunday of the year, and as I look back – not just at the year gone by, but the years gone by for JaSam, I cannot help but feel nostalgic in a good way. 

Jason and Sam gave us such great times, and such wonderful years, that not even this past (hard) year could take that from me. And it shouldn’t take that from us. I think we can all agree that even after the nightmare the new regime put us through, the moment Jason and Sam were back together and admitting to each other that they had always been in love, we were back in love with them.

I have heard about Steve’s rumored move to The Young and The Restless, but I have to be honest in telling you that my reaction may not be what most expect it to be. Sure, I want Steve’s Jason back at GH, because I want him back with Sam and Danny. I think all of you know that, as I have made no secret about that. However, I get that Steve made a choice that was best for his family when he decided to move out to Tennessee. From what we’ve been told, I can only assume that there was some back and forth before he left GH because he wanted more time to be with his family. GH wasn’t willing – or able – to concede on that. Apparently, if the rumors for Y&R are true, Steve’s new role is not the kind of role that would require the time and commitment that his role (our favorite) on GH would.

Does it suck? Yeah. Am I disappointed? Abso-FREAKIN-lutely! But, you know what? As a parent, I totally get it. After years of keeping a career front and center, there comes a time when you realize that your career shouldn’t always be Number One. As a professional, I understand. After 20+ years of doing your job with such a high level of commitment and loyalty, you just think that you’ve earned some cooperation. And rightly so.

If Y&R is willing to give Steve what he needs at the moment, who am I to begrudge him the right to work a little? Especially since after being forced into retirement because of a serious injury, I totally get how desperately you miss feeling like you’re doing that one thing you were meant to do. I wish Steve all the best, but I am still holding on to the hope that GH finds a way to bring him back on whatever terms work for him and his family. I do believe that GH will always be home for him, and that he really would want to come back – even if for the fans.

That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it!


Now, getting back to this week’s holiday-themed Drive. There’s a little old and a little new, and some of what people came up with in the past few days…but it’s ALL “For Auld Lang Syne” (For old times’ sake). A couple this perfect deserves to be remembered for the magic they created onscreen…not the headlines involving their personal lives.

That’s what these vids do…they honor the Magic of JaSam. I hope you all enjoy the Drive, and that the year ahead brings us something to be happy about again. It wouldn’t be the first time a New Year does that for us JaSam fans! 🙂 But, let;’s not take for granted that we have lots of new moments to look back on this New Year’s!

A DIVERSIONARY Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday morning, GHers.

If you are anything like me, you’re trying to de-puff your eyes and downing some pain relievers to try and deal with the headache still lingering from all of the crying. Never in my life have I felt such an overwhelming sense of shock and disillusionment with life as we knew it in America. Something is fundamentally wrong when something like the tragedy in Newtown, CT can happen, and yet we can’t fix whatever it is that’s wrong right away.

I thought for a bit that I couldn’t…shouldn’t…wouldn’t post this weekend’s Drive. Then I realized that sometimes in devastating situations like this, we could all use a break. A diversion. A reason to smile.

Furthermore, my dear friend, Steph, had a special request: that our Drive after such a hard week be about good times and reasons to smile. I couldn’t agree more, and actually felt lighter after taking the time just to compile the vids, and getting my mind off of everything else for a little while. (I can only hope and pray that you guys know me well enough by now to know that in no way am I trying to minimize the terrible thing that has happened to those innocent victims. I am simply trying to provide an escape for those who desire one. If you are not ready for that yourself, then please, by all means, do something else. It is certainly not my intention to offend or hurt anyone. As most of you know, I taught in a K-4 school for 10 years before teaching Pre-K for seven. I feel a personal connection to this, as many of you do for different reasons. I pray you understand.)


I will tell you that almost immediately upon seeing Steve and Kelly do their thing, I was reminded me that Jason and Sam are the absolute best DIVERSION onscreen! It’s my hope that our Drive this week will serve to lighten your heavy hearts, brighten the dark feelings surrounding this tragedy, and actually give you a reason to smile, even if for just a few minutes.

I hope you enjoyed our Drive this week, and that it was a source of tranquility for a little bit.

Let’s continue to pray for these families and for this community, and let’s vow to cherish every moment with those we love; especially our children. Hold them a little tighter, hug them a little longer, kiss them a little harder, and take the time to just breathe them in.

I love you all,


A *DAZZLING* Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane

Good Sunday Morning, GHers!

It is a HUGE day at our house today! It’s the day of the annual Christmas Spectacular at our children’s school – and this year is my youngest’s first time with a major part as an angel, and my son’s last…as he will be graduating at the end of this school year. So I will be packing lots and lots of tissues and applying waterproof mascara in preparation, but boy am I excited and immensely proud!

Wish them luck, won’t ‘cha? 🙂

As I went through vids this week, I came across one that I remember served as a smilemaker during a pretty hard time for JaSam during the Brenda era. Then I remembered that this particular vidder was one who, in my mind, has made some pretty *DAZZLING* vids over the years, and they were memorable to me because of the effects she used. So, I went back and watched quite a few of them, and found myself smiling and recalling some wonderful, exciting moments for us as JaSam fans. I just knew that I had to take you on the same drive down memory lane.

Her vids are of the shorter variety, so I included way more than I usually do. (And still, she has many more you should check out when you have time!) I hope that you will enjoy it as much as I did, as this vidder, mcdela02, is in the driver’s seat today, and all the vids we’ll be enjoying are credited to her. The really incredible thing is just how much JaSam “ground” she covers in her vids. It truly will be A Sunday Drive Down Memory Lane. Be prepared to be *DAZZLED*! She’s absolutely magnificent!

“I Just Wanted To Thank You” 

“My World Would Go Dark”

“It Wasn’t A Choice”

“I Got You”

“What Do You Get From It?”

“God Damn You’re Beautiful”

“Love You” 

“Baby Promo”

“Your Love Is A Song”

“13 ILU’s”


“For U Always”

“Husband & Wife”

“Someone Like You”


Wow…isn’t she a talented little thing? 

I hope you’ll all show her some love for all of her hard work over the years…maybe it will inspire her to make a new vid…including some of the scenes with JaSam and Baby Daniel. 🙂

Truly, our JaSam vidders are all so AMAZING. I think we are so lucky they are #TeamJaSam!

By the way, I hope this week’s drive also served to show us all why the JaSam Magic is irreplaceable – and could NEVER be imitated by anyone other than STELLY! A Jason recast would be an insult to me as a fan – a slap in the face even. I am praying that it never happens. I’d rather Jason be “out there somewhere” trying to get back to his family, than for some new Jason come in and ruin (or even change) the fantastic thing we had going between Steve and Kelly!

I will hold out hope until the very end that Jason will come back – OUR Jason, even if we have to wait a while.

Enjoy your Sunday, loves!

It’s always wonderful to start off my Sundays with you all!
