Even Kennedy’s was filled with happy, smiling faces. At the bar waiting for brunch were: Helen Johnson, Pat Nielsen and Barbara Fish, all aunts from Dayton Towers, celebrating the birth of their brand new niece, Bridget Kathleen, their cute little bunny born on Easter Sunday.

Young looking and vibrant, Alice Murphy just turned 80 and were given a surprise birthday brunch by family and friends. Sons, William and Joseph, daughters Jacqueline Power and Maryalice Rizzo, best buddy, Kevin Kelly from Breezy and friend Lois Ferguson were among tables of guests.

Nora and Joe Funaro are proud of the fact their son, Colin Jackson was accepted at Stuyvesant High, Bishop Malloy and Regis High, and will be attending Regis H.S. this fall. Their 5-year-old daughter, Lucia will be attending kindergarten.

The Library at St. Edmund’s Church Hall will discuss Tom Brokaw’s new book, "The Greatest Generation" on Thurs., May 3rd. It was chosen at this time in keeping with the long awaited World War 11 Memorial to be dedicated in May in Washington, D.C. Tom Mitchell, Commander of the local VFW will lead the talk. It should be a very interesting evening. All are welcome.

I wish to thank those of you for your kind compliments on my designed nails by Janet of Studio J. She really does remarkable work and does beautiful designs for every occasion.

In the meantime, stop in and ask her about it.

The new fabulous coffee table book, "Celebrity" with photos by Terry O’Neill, introduced by AA Gill was launched at the new relocated Dunhill store on Fifth Ave. Terry O’Neill proves Celebrities achieve star quality rather than mere renown...Unique poses of our favorite people such as Elizabeth Taylor, Elton John, Audrey Hepburn, Mick Jagger, Shirley McLain, Paul Newman, Katharine Hepburn, Frank Sinatra and on and on, one shot more fascinating than the other, jolts the mind back to time immemorial reflecting our fondest memories of the joy brought by these people..

Trouble with pierced ears? I found the perfect solution at the Extract Show called Labbit. It comes in a packet with micro thin wash thread that you pull through the pierced hole in the ear after it is dipped into the cleansing solution included in the package. It is a Thai product and they also make shampoo and conditioner from herbs called U’R that comes in different fragrances, such as "Kaffir Lime. There is a body exfoliate and shower gel and more, all made from herbs Check them out: www.ur-ur.com.

Anti-aging is what it is all about these days and over at the Spa Expo I came across Invisilift, an ultra sound process that eliminates invasive plastic surgery, none of us wishes to go through.

A six week series tightens the skin, builds tighter skin, reduces pore size, clears complexion, diminishes rosacea and takes years off your face. I had one treatment and there was no pain or discomfort. On the contrary, it was soothing ultrasound that covers the face with a slippery gel that doesn’t drip, a very pleasant way to regain some of your lost youthful appearance www.invisilift. com.
