Join Lian, Sheila, Liz and Julie today for: Sheila's first time ever renting a car.  (How is that possible?)  And then she finds her way to Bruckner Blvd somehow. Lian rediscovers an old TV friend with her teenage son. They have so many hours of viewing enjoyment to look forward to this spring! She's also very happy to see the change in Matt Lauer's fortunes.  Finally. Julie discovers a brand new subculture at the Brooklyn Marriott.  You'll need to hear her tell it. And Liz wants to know: what would you do with 20,000 pounds of hot cheese? Not hot as in fondue. The other kind of hot. Keep up with Lian's plans for the launch of her new novel Elizbeth The First Wife. She'll be making a "sneak signing appearance" at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books at USC on April 20. Don't forget to LIKE her author page on Facebook.  Just search on Lian Dolan Author.  While you are at, be sure to join the Satellite Sisters Facebook Group.

Julie, Liz and Sheila connect on today's Satellite Sisters, which we dedicate to loyal, longtime Satellite Mister William J. Dahn. Sheila fills us in on her latest creative project - there's more poetry and coffee in her future.  Plus, she has a nomination for a host to replace both Joy Behar and Elizabeth Hasselbeck on The View.  You may know her .  Lian Dolan? Yes! Got onboard the campaign, people. Julie's got the latest on Lian's new book Elizabeth The First Wife, plus news about her son's book.  She needs a little help decoding that one.  And she's got a bone to pick with the new TSA regulations. Liz is feeling a groundswell of support for potential Pope Dolan.  No, we are not related but we think it would be hilarious.   Have you registered yet with popealarm.com?  You are going to want to do that for all your breaking pope news needs. And where do you intend to spend your golden years?  Liz found a front page story in the New York Times today on this subject a little alarming.  Great deals in South Florida retirement villages are attracting boomers who never would have expected they'd end up there. It was just the motivation she needed to start madly working on less buggy alternatives. See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Satellite Sisters March 3, 2013: Julie, Liz and...
On today's Satellite Sisters, Liz connects with Julie + Lian from Julie's home in Dallas.  Lian's racking up some Frequent Visitor points at Julie's place and shares some compliments and observations on her high level concierge skills!  Plus: As our North Korean expert, Julie speaks out on Dennis Rodman's visit to North Korea.  His reaction seems to have been wildly different from hers when she was there several years ago. Surprised? Liz thinks Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer's new plan to force everyone to work in the office all day Monday through Friday might not be so bad if they didn't also expect you to answer email and phone calls nights and weekends, while Julie think's it's all just a big stunt to make Yahoo feel cutting edge by going back to the future.  Good luck with that. Lian is envious of her husband's "office of the future" which apparently is more advanced than the old Ikea dining room table that serves as her home office.  Fancy stand-up desks?  Isn't that what kitchen counters are for? Plus quick updates on Sheila (Report Cards + Laryngitis), Monica (Dim Sum) and Ferris (Thriving!). And Lian has tips on how to keep up on all the news on her new novel Elizabeth The First Wife coming out in May.  Join her Lian Dolan Author Page on Facebook for the latest.

Liz is losing a lot of stuff lately.  What's up wth that? And we are totally on the bandwagon for  Pope Dolan.  We think that would a totally appropriate salute to our Dad.

On today's show, Liz explains every new food or snack she's been preparing for her dog Ferris. He was diagnosed with lymphoma last week and he's just not eating enough.  She calls her new ratings system on his health the "squirrelometer".  Find out how that works and how much time she's spending foraging for bologna. Julie's got a tale of her grandaughter Alice's introduction to youth soccer.  Those 5 year olds can get rough.  Alice's mother, Julie's daughter-in-law,  was born and raised in Kyrgyzstan, so this is all new to her, too.  It's going to be quite a season.

Satellite Sisters August 12, 2012: Monica, Juli...
How did they always open the old Wide World of Sports?  "The thrill of victory and the agony of defeat". Yeah, that was us this week.  On the thrill side, the Olympics, the Olympics and, oh yeah, Mars Curiousity.  Monica has a complete rundown of her favorite Olympic moments and people.  We know those sprint relays are always amazing but who knew platform diving could be so emotional?  What are we going to do now that the Games are over?  Julie has a specific strategy to share with is. On the agony side, our father took a real turn for the worse this week.  Alzheimer's is a terrible disease and we are learning the hard way that we can't predict what will happen next. On an upnote, Julie recommends that EVERYONE watch USA Swimming's cover of Call Me Maybe if you are feeling a little post-Olympic letdown and read Lian's Olympic notes on her blog Chaos Chronicles to rbing all the fun back. And Liz exhorts the whole Satellite Sisterhood to take up trampoline.  Let's all make the team for Brazil 2016! See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

On the sporting front, she's enjoying it all so much, she's not sure if she'll get ANY work done this week. Sheila's worries about John McEnroe after seeing his interview of Ryan Lochte.  She has some advice for his hairdresser.  Plus her own athletic career is threatened by a new injury that requires shopping for some "50 Shades of Grey bondage products", whatever that means.

Our Satellite Sisters Nike+ Walking and Running Challenge is getting loads of uptake from you.  Thanks, Sisters!  Keep up the good work. Julie has a major Commencement today.  The English language students she's been teaching have their big graduation ceremony. It's a moment to reminisce about Dolan family graduations gone by.  There was a definite protocol that developed over the years. Monica has a medical update from last week. Turns out its true that mustard and picke juice are good for you. Who knew? Sheila reviews Darling Companion.  Doesn't love it.  Could it be that she's not a dog lover? Liz teaches her parents how to get Movies On Demand from their cable box.  She's not hopeful that the lesson stuck. Julie has quick news update on North Korea,  Three words: Don't Be Fooled.

Meanwhile, she waits for the official word that this year she finally DID score the HGTV Dream House! Lian's more focused on winning the Downton Abbey sweepstakes.

Satellite Sisters 02/12/12
Julie and Liz connect on the show today to discuss the sad death of Whitney Houston.  There was no better version of the national anthem EVER and yes, we loved The Bodyguard, no matter how corny.  Also this week, Julie magically learrns to speak Italian.  Molto bene! Plus, we answer the mailbag from The Satellite Sisters Facebook group, the @SatSisters twitter feed, posts on the www.satellitesisters.com blog and our plain 'ole email address sisters@satellitesisters.com.  And finally, a shocker.  Satellite Sisters Stick Up For A Supermodel.  Giselle, we would have done the same thing in your place.  Of course, we'd never be in your place.  But we can only imagine how we would feel if WE were married to Tom Brady.  See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Julie's visit to North Korean last year gives her a unique perspective on the death of Kim Jong Il. Liz loves the all caucus/primary hoopla but is not sure we need QUITE this many Republican debates (two in the last 24 hours?  Really?) Sheila sticks up for Madonna's right to perform at the Super Bowl and is ready to believe Beyonce. Julie has her first Kindle moment and is concerned she may never again see the inside of a bookstore. And Sheila's new 2012 experiment?  Bird-watching!  If only she could get the right footwear.
