Helene Danzilo is in intensive care at Mt. Sinai Hospital for the third week. She needs your prayers to fully recover from heart complications from the open heart surgery performed on her this past winter in Las Vegas. Cards and good wishes are welcome.

Residents of Belle Harbor, Breezy Point and Surfside are all raving about the beauty results at bargain prices offered to all on Thurdays only, by appointment, at Surfside Studio “J” beauty salon. Ethel Brown told me, “I felt so gorgeous.” Charlotte Leeds proclaimed, “I felt so pampered and never received so much for so little;” Florence Pickarsky claimed,” It was a great bargain...for a new transformation of me...never heard of before.” More and more women, even from Breezy Point, have been pleased with their “Complete Thursday Do-Over.” They only wonder how long these revolutionary head to toe makeovers will last. Before you miss out, get all the details from them. It seems everyone else is pleased. You should be too. And, by the way, if you want a Halloween Mask, Janet will paint one on your nails. This way your mask is ready for any Halloween party that comes up.

With so many shows in town I was able to look into future products that will be available to you in the stores this winter. From the Texture Show is the novel Salad Sac. Made of properly designed toweling material, it keeps your salad fresh and dry in your refrigerator for days. A wrist holder for your cell phone was also there. You can make all the latte you want with a wire spinner. And, for Halloween, a see through plastic carry case for Pumpkin, bats and ghost cutters and mask cutters. It’s a Bonjour product. See me display them on WNYX-TV.

At a dermatology seminar I learned the newest method of breast reduction is liposuction. Invasive surgery is no longer needed. Results are excellent and recovery is speedier.

Some of you, I know, love to attend the Wine Tasting. For elegance and superb wines and gourmet menus you can’t beat the Wine tasting and dinners at The Mark Hotel, NYC. I attended one and it was out of this world. It starts with a wine tasting/ seminar by Sommelier, Richard Dean followed by a gourmet dinner by Chef Andrew Chase. Mon. Oct. 25 is the next one. The Digital show was in town with many, many innovative devices in phone technology, computers etc. to make our lives easier, more efficient and organized. Look into the Blackberry that is Internet Compatible and does about everything but talk to you.

A very interesting and moving luncheon at the Waldorf for International Women’s Media Foundation. Awards were presented to Gwen Lister, 50, founder of Namibian newspaper in Windhoek, Namibia criticizing apartheid in South Africa, in spite of life threats. Bela Davis, 72, California TV journalist received the Lifetime Achievement Award for covering for 30 years the needs of ethnic communities in San Francisco Bay. Mabel Rehnfeidt, ABC color newspaper and host of daily radio show in Paraguay covering government corruption, who was attacked and her daughter theatened. Selma Tiemeani More, 40, a reporter for El Waton newspaper in Algeria covered armed Islamic groups for more than 12 years during Algeria ‘s civil war she reported accounts of rapes and murders.

Thank God these women lived to tell their moving stories. They are dedicated newswomen beyond the call.
