  • Pivot? Is this a new cable channel? ..never heard of it.

    And awesome news about Chandra being on GH. Too bad she wasn’t playing Dr. Bailey in a crossover type. Little piece of trivia if you’ve ever watched The OC,: in Season 4 Summer’s father Dr. Roberts takes a job at a “wonderfully quirky hospital named Seattle Grace.” In a later episode a character asks if the short sassy lady (Dr. Bailey) is still bossing him around. Such a hoot!

    • I’m not 100% positive but I think Seattle Grace was also mentioned on GH. When Robin’s HIV protocol wasn’t working she went to a hospital in Seattle for help and I thought they showed her going into Seattle Grace.

    • Also Bobbie, Lucas, Noah, and Kevin all ended up in Seattle. The cross-over almost writes itself.

    • One Life to Live did that too. When Michael and Marcie McBain left town, it was because he took a job as an ER Attending at Seattle Grace.

  • Chandra Wilson on GH is awesome. Can’t wait. Hope she get some scenes with Robin that would be amazing.

  • I’ve been binge-watching Veronica Mars. Since Soapnet is the only channel it has in reruns, hopefully I will be able to catch up on Pivot. :)

  • Can I simply just say what a relief to find somebody that
    truly understands what they’re talking about over the internet.

    You certainly realize how to bring a problem to light and make
    it important. More and more people really need to read this and understand this side of the
    story. It’s surprising you’re not more popular since you certainly have the gift.

    your body go to:. If you’re consuming meals which might be a lot higher in calorie consumption, you’d literally need to devote a
    lot of time inside the fitness center aiming to remove all these off.

    already for more than three months and evaluated their dieting results.

  • The principle applied is in the same wavelength as the business entity’s efforts to
    anticipate its customers’ needs even before they realize
    such a need, thus earning their customers’ loyalty.

    So you can breath in abundance each and every minute of every
    last day. They had a lot of work for me and I was fascinated by
    what they were doing.

  • * It is important to pray to God frequently (Muslims do it five times a day) and attend a congretion at least once a week
    (usually mid-day on Fridays). And in the other side, the “traditionalists” are often referring
    to mystical Sufi tradition and focusing on self purification (Howell,
    2001). and it is fundamentally secular and has nothing
    to do with ideology and spiritual meaning of life.

  • Hold off on sharing your rugged body odor until youre hot and heavy in bed.
    I know, that does not sound very manly, if you want to and just focus on
    the physical benefits. Just remember to do it in a nice tactful way and not be a jerk if you want to attract beautiful women.
