Love this time of year…

 

….mcintosh apples are here, along with a whole bunch of other yummy, fresh produce. Walking by all of the fruit and vegetable markets in the city makes me feel like I’m in a Nora Ephron film. And, of course, I’m Meg Ryan in a cute little outfit. (Kathy)

Holler 4 Health Care

 

We’re very happy to be a part of this evening and to be hollerin’ about such a good cause, we Canadians like our health care! We’re in wonderful company, including Brent Carver and my friend Shirley Douglas.  Come join us if you’re in the hood.  (Kathy)

So Cute!

 

Look at what Teresa got me for Christmas…4 sweet, tiny, perfectly pretty bowls.  I love them.  The 4 gals get together with our manager, Hendrik, every Christmas holiday for a lovely lunch.  Ok, Hendrik ducks out after about 30 minutes because that’s about all he can take, he really does get enough of us through […]

Endurance

 

Jayne and I love real life adventure stories.  Probably because of our mutual involvement in extreme sports and the fact that we actually met as rescuers in the Coast Guard on the Bering Sea.  Anyhoo, we eat these books up like popcorn. They’re exciting and suspenseful and a fascinating study of the human spirit…and always […]

Fresh!

 

Our musician, Bob, moved west this month, (don’t worry, he’s still our guy when we tour!), and we got together for a lunch before he left.  He chose Fresh, a great little vegetarian restaurant at Queen and Crawford in Toronto.  There are a couple of others in the city as well.  This is a picture […]

“Instant Mom”

 

Our good friend, Nia Vardalos, has written a book about her experience adopting her daughter through the Foster system.  It’s called “Instant Mom”, and it will be available in April.  You all know Nia from My Big Fat Greek Wedding.  She’s a funny, talented, brilliant lady and a fabulous mom.  I was lucky enough to […]

Ang Lee is my favourite director…

 

…he is, he just is, it’s official.  Every movie he makes is beautiful.  Different, touching, thoroughly entertaining and beautiful.  Life of Pi is one of my favourite books and not only didn’t Ang Lee ruin it like every other director does with my favourite books, he brought more to it.  It’s gorgeous and crazy and utterly engaging […]

Re Bar

 

Ok, it’s official:  Women Fully Clothed’s Best Restaurant of Any Tour in Any Country on Any Planet award goes to…Re Bar in Victoria.  We remembered the breakfast we had here 4 years ago, killer oatmeal and egg dishes, and returned for lunch when we hit Victoria today.  What can I say?  Healthy, fresh, brilliant, utterly delicious food and drink.  […]

BBQ!

 

This is Robin at Sonny Bryan’s in Dallas.  In Toronto, when we talk about a BBQ, we’re talking about firing up the grill and spending the evening searing steaks and burgers in the backyard.  But in the south, oh dear.  I’d heard about it and had to try it, so we were mercifully directed to […]

Small Role Awards

 

     I can’t take it anymore.  I can’t take the amount of awards shows out there for people in “show” business.  It’s embarrassing.  I’ve loved them as much as the next gal all my life, for the same superficial reasons as everyone else: looking at pretty people, ogling their clothes, judging their speeches.  It’s a […]
