May 17

Vanessa's appearance on Ellen was one of the best and very funny. I added 3 video clips from the show to the video page with links to save each to your hard drive if you chose (or if you have a slower connection).

I also added 47 photos from her appearance on Ellen.


May 16

I had to use an alternate method to receive Caption This suggestions for this week. My e-mail isn't working correctly. I can't receive any results from forms. I tried the form for Caption This myself 4-5 times and didn't receive a single e-mail. Until this is resolved, please use the guestbook format to suggest a caption. You don't have to answer all of the questions (i.e. web site address)...all I ask for is your name.

Added 6 additional video clips from Vanessa's co-hosting day on the Sharon Osbourne Show.

Added 44 photos of Maurice from GH from May.

Added 2 links.

Updated the poll question and posted the results to the previous two Emmy polls.

Vanessa will be appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday, May 17.


May 15

Caption This has been updated for Week 82.


May 11

Added 6 videos from Monday's Sharon Osbourne Show. I'm about half way through the show, so more videos will be arriving latter this week when I get another opportunity to transfer them to my computer. See the videos now!

May 9

Caption This has been updated for Week 81.

There is still the possibility of site errors over the next day or so as the changes I talked about yesterday did not go through. I re-entered them today, so hopefully everything will be as normal by tomorrow.

Vanessa will be co-hosting the Sharon Osbourne Show on Monday, May 10. Check local listings for time and channel. Full coverage will be given on S&B Online.

May 8

Certain parts of S&B Online might not work over the next 24 hours, including polls and forms. The reason for this is that I am transferring Sonny and Brenda Online to a more spacious host and am diverting visitors to sbelievers.net until the domain transfer is completed. Sorry for the inconvience. This will help enormously as I start to get more video and photos onto the site.

Very exciting news: Vanessa Marcil is going to be hosting the Daytime Emmy Awards on May 21 on NBC. I'm very excited about this news (though not sure how I didn't hear/read about it sooner). I expected her to present an award since she won an Emmy last year, but I never dreamed of this. Full coverage will be provided on this site as soon as I can after the event.

    January 31

    Caption This! has been updated for Week 67.

    I had more updates planned for today, however I had a hard drive go bad on me a couple of days ago and had to spend a lot of time getting everything to work again. I managed to rescue all of the Caption suggestions from my e-mail program that were submitted prior to Thursday. I didn't receive any other suggestions after that time.

    January 30

    Updated the news on the Las Vegas page.

    January 24

    Caption This! has been updated for Week 66. I installed a new form script today that seems to be better than the previous one. Please give it a try by submitting a caption suggestion this week.

    Changed the poll question. Thank you to all who responded to the question that I posted on Monday. The majority favored S&B Online adding current screen captures of Sonny/Maurice from GH to his photo album. This will begin this week. I'll be adding them to his photo album by month. As always, updates will be posted on this page.

    Added 8 Maurice/Sonny screen captures from Thursday and Friday's General Hospital.

    Added 12 photos and 3 videos from the Las Vegas episode "Decks and Violence."

    Added 32 photos and 6 videos from the Las Vegas episode "Blood and Sand."

    Added 4 new lyrics to the Sonny and Brenda Music Box.

    January 19

    Changed the poll question and posted the results to the previous poll.

    Update: I'm still having problems getting the forms on my site to send everyone's caption suggestions. It's hard for me to fix because some people (myself included) can successfully use the forms 10 times out of 10 (meaning that the results process through the script and end up in my mail box within seconds). While for others, it fails 9 or 10 times out of 10 (meaning that it gets stuck somewhere in cyberspace never to be seen again). I'm very disappointed in this since I want as many suggestions as possible and I hate having suggestions never seen since I know that there are a lot of talented caption writers out there. I can't even pin it down to a certain host. I know that at least 5 people have used AOL to submit captions and not had their caption posted on the voting page. However, there are about a half dozen people that regularly use AOL addresses and successfully send captions to me every week. I even tested it using my own AOL account and it went straight to my web site's mailbox. It is very strange, but I am working on it. In the mean time, if you have been one of those who have submitted caption suggestions only to never have it appear on the site, rest assured that it is a script problem and not with your computer and I am working on it. I have an alternate caption page set up where it sends your caption by e-mail through your default e-mail program. Thanks for reading my rambling. :)

    Finally had some time to get a better form processor up and running. It took a lot of trial and error (over an hours worth), but I got it to work.

Your information has been submitted" page.
