Anybody remember the soaps "The Secret Storm" and the "Edge of Night"?

How about these? Classic soap operas you used to watch | Trivia Genius

Since more women are working, that's why there's very few soaps now, I guess.

Do you all remember when you had to go through an operator to make a long distance call? ANd you could reverse the charges, meaning the person you called had to pay for it.

I do remember that and I remember there was cheating too. People would make a person to person collect call just to tell their parents or sweetheart that they got home just fine but the person would say they wouldn't accept charges but they all ready heard the message. It was common on sit-comes to do that.

Remember canned laughter?

When I was little we had an Easter Egg candy bakery in town. You could go there and special order coconut cream Easter eggs with one's name inscribed on them. We were six kids and my mother always went and special ordered eggs with each of our names on them. Of course I didn't know this until I was older because they came from the Easter Bunny.
