Disney Merch, March Sadness and the Angela Merkel School of Body Language

Angela Merkel body language

Sisters In The News: Lian Dolan floats her theory that Liz Dolan and Angela Merkel probably went to the same school of body language, with majors side-eye and eye-roll.

Today on the Satellite Sisters Podcast, we cover everything from Beauty & The Beast to DWTS, from March Sadness to Brian’s Song. But we start Sisters in the News. What do Angela Merkel & Liz Dolan have in common? Lian will tell you. It’s a body language thing. And who could use a little bit of the indefatigable energy of Julie Dolan? The Secretary of State, that’s who. Lian Dolan on the headline news that made her think of her sisters.

First up, Lian attends the Fencing Grand Prix in Long Beach, CA.  Thanks, USOC, for the invitation. You know the Satellite Sisters are Olympic junkies but who knew that fencing was its own lifestyle?? Now Lian knows.

In the news, Lian sees parallels between Liz and Angela Merkel.  Apparently, they went to the same school of body language.  Cue the eye roll. Plus, Lian notes that our international correspondent Julie is indefatigable and would be an excellent candidate for an open slot at the State Department.  Hello, Rex?

The New York Historical Society has opened a new center devoted to the contributions of women in American history, the only one of its kind in the United States. Plus, Lian reports that Nevada just approved the E.R.A.  Remember the Equal Rights Amendment? Julie still has her button.

Urban Nana Julie has a few problems with children’s museums based on her recent visits to one in Brooklyn with her granddaughter Josephine.  Plus, on her Tuesday Trends she has a question from the Wall Street Journal:  Is your refrigerator awesome enough? 

Beauty and The Beast Limited Edition Tumbler

Did you see Beauty and the Beast this weekend? And how long are you willing to stand in line for the Limited Edition Tumbler from the new movie?

Are your brackets all busted for March Madness?  So long Villanova and Duke. Liz introduces us to March Sadness, a sad song contest she heard about on OPB.  It was created by Julie Hahn in Boise and features a whole category of sad songs called Sadsteen.  Songs of misery from the Boss himself.  The River.  Streets of Philadelphia.  The Ghost of Tom Joad.  He’s the master. All songs listed on the March Sadness Facebook Group under Files once you join.

Speaking of sad, new reports tell us that the great Chicago Bear Gale Sayers is suffering from dementia. If you don’t remember Gale Sayers on the field, you may remember him as played by Billy Dee Williams in one of the best TV movies of all-time,  Brian’s Song. James Cann plays the dying Brian Piccolo. It’s a Satellite Sisters Sobfest.

Operation Sea Turtle, Liz’s fitness program, hits a snag called Yoga Sculpt Fusion.

Lian admires the Disney genius in creating the new Beauty and The Beast products.  Are you in line right now for the new tumbler?

Plus updates on from Lian on her  dance group, Steffi the German Shepherd and her vegetable garden.

Come join all five Satellite Sisters on April 22nd at the Santa Monica Public Library at 2 pm.  No-host Meet-Up to follow at Ester’s Wine Shop. Are you coming?  Thanks to Away Luggage for donating a door prize for this event.  Lian loves her Away Carry-On.  Come win one!

JAN 18, 2015: SHEILA SHARES HEAD-WEAR NEWS. THE SISTERS ARE TAKEN ABACK, BUT CARRY ON WITH NEWS, TALK & LAUGHS

Liz shares Operation Sea Turtle, Phase Two. It has three prongs, of course, because that's Sheila's rule.


Liz shares Operation Sea Turtle, Phase Two. It has three prongs, of course, because that’s Sheila’s rule.

Listen to today’s Satellite Sisters

Liz, Sheila, Monica and Lian tackle:

Sheila’s take on the latest fashion trends and what she wears on her head when she is home alone. No photos please.

Lian’s has a warning on trendy new food and diet advice.  Her German Shepherd Mika disproved this new advice years ago.

Lian wants Liz’s advice on Sheryl Sandberg’s advice  in the New York Times about women speaking up in a meeting.

And Monica’s wants some movie-going suggestions this holiday weekend so all the sisters weigh in.

Plus Liz is putting Operation Sea Turtle Phase Two in effect.  It requires unplugging a lot of devices.  Let’s see how that goes.

She is also starting Errol Morris’ new bestseller about the trials of Jeffrey MacDonald entitled A Wilderness of Error. The podcast Serial turned her on to true crime.

And Monica also finished another true crime book which she calls a real pageturner:  The Good Nurse by Charles Graeber. Good book, unsettling subject.
