This week, at, the only officially sanctioned continuation of Guiding Light:

Rick and Mindy exchanged vows in front of friends and family.

The wedding portrait-taking culminated with little Jude leading everyone in a chant of "Bauer Power."

Billy, Vanessa, Ed, Bill, Beth and Michelle offered toasts - some heartfelt, some hilarious, but Phillip (who Beth confessed had been acting rather strangely since they passed the one year mark of Alan's death) presented the newlyweds with their most symbolic token - a pair of live Palomino ponies!

At the reception, Leah flirted with both Jason and Kevin Marler, to Mindy's dismay, Ed told Maureen stories about her namesake, and Roxie Shayne met the canine Roxy Spaulding.

Mindy and Rick were just getting ready to ride off into the sunset - literally - on Phillip's wedding gift, when Lizzie's water unexpectedly broke and the entire family headed off to the hospital instead.

Check out for more details on the festivities, and don't forget to tune in on Monday to find out what happens next!

Back in the days when both radio and soap operas were still new, the traditional format featured a central heroine such as Joyce Jordan MD, Helent Trent or Kitty Foyle introducing her listeners to the trials and tribulations of her family, friends and neighbors.

After the transition to television, this trend continued with Liz Dennis of The Brighter Day, Julie Fielding of Follow Your Heart, Liz Fraser of From These Roots, Eve Allen of The Greatest Gift, Katy Elliot of Morning Starr and, most notably, Jo Barron (Mary Stuart; pictured) of Search for Tomorrow serving as central, point-of-view characters for all the romance, intrigue and high drama that struck their seemingly sleepy small towns on a disturbingly regular basis.

In 2009, with the Internet looking to usurp television's place and function in American society (the same way that TV once usurped radio) Guiding Light's Mindy Lewis picks up the baton of Joyce, Helen, Liz, Eve and Jo as the woman on the spot, bringing fans intimately into the world, lives and loves of Springfield, USA.

Mindy has been Twittering her days ever since coming back home for her high-school reunion in March, reminiscing about her relationships with Phillip, Alex, Beth and Rick.

Go to starting on Monday, September 21, 2009 for up to the minute updates from Mindy and Rick's wedding, plus all of the latest, on-going Springfield action.

Accompanying Mindy's Tweets will be classic GL clips, viewer polls, contests and other interactive features.

The Light may have dimmed, but it isn't totally out yet!
