Everyday Heroes

Debbie says: I had a lovely vacation in the Florida Keys, with some of my oldest and dearest friends.

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Laurie says: I finished the final master prints of Women of Japan Saturday night. This means that the project is basically finished. I haven’t had time to to take it in yet, but as it starts to sink in, it feels fabulous. In the last 6 months I’ve been feeling very driven to finish. Women […]

Trips and Links

Sunday, January 21st, 2007

Laurie Says: Deb is on an electronic free vacation in the Florida Keys having a wonderful time. I’m frantically getting ready for my Seattle, New York City and Boston trips in February, so life is pretty dense. That’s why it’s been a little quiet here.

Tuesday, January 16th, 2007

Debbie says: Despite my long-time fascination with the concept of “ugliness” (everyone writes about beauty; almost no one writes or talks or thinks about ugliness), I haven’t been paying much attention to the TV show Ugly Betty, which may be why I found this article on the show moving to England so interesting. Among the […]

Debbie says: So I’m running errands Thursday night with newsradio on in the car, and the announcer says, “Men with advanced prostate cancer who are treated with a combination of hormones and radiation are encountering serious symptoms, according to a new study.” Well, I think, “Advanced cancer treatment has serious symptoms; I wonder what could […]

Making Your Dog Sick in Pursuit of Thinness

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Lynne Murray says: Laurie pointed out a Minneapolis Star Tribune article reporting FDA approval of “the first drug for obese canines….” She asked if I wanted to guest blog about it because of the parallels with my post on my fat cat’s experience at the vet.

Dieting: It’s About Taking Care of Yourself

Thursday, January 4th, 2007

Laurie and Debbie say: Not only doctors, but diet groups, advertising producers, and casting directors everywhere are smugly taking credit for your transit delays. Asim Nelson, a [New York City Metropolitan Transit Authority] emergency medical technician, told the paper that fainting dieters topped the “sick customer” list. … Although the agency doesn’t keep an official […]

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Laurie and Debbie say: According to the New York Times, at least a segment of the porn industry is showing real women. In an article on older women in pornography, journalist Sharon Waxman says: “She looks like what she is, an attractive 50-year-old, with eyelids and cheeks that have succumbed to gravity and concentric circles […]
