I remember scheduling my college courses around #All My Children. Couldn't miss it. Work life freed me of addiction; so sad it's going away.

I think they should end the last episode of All My Children with that Friday song. And Erica Kane exploding.

I am in mourning over the loss of All My Children. Shame on ABC for cancelling it. So long Pine Valley. I shall miss you. And like crazy.
