|RACE FOR THE CURE
You CAN Help!
by Lauren Brunjes
You have probably heard Brad talking about Race for the Cure, and you're probably thinking it only applies to people who live in Southern California. So like many, you may choose to tune the information out. In fact, you may have decided not to read this because you think it doesn't apply to you. But this is a mission in which we can ALL participate. It doesn't matter where you live, or how much money you have or don't have. Each and every one of us in the Martini Family can help make a difference when it comes to defeating breast cancer. So before you come up with a reason not to participate, I encourage you to read on and look at all the possibilities before you make your decision.

Sisters and Songs
Jennifer Cooley and Cyndy Noto
It was just last year that Jennifer Cooley found the love her of life - her soul mate. Life was good and she could not have been happier. But just like that, everything changed.
Jennifer and her sister, Cyndy Noto, have both been long-time listeners and supporters of Martini in the Morning. Now the sisters will support one another as Jennifer embarks on her personal battle with breast cancer.

A Note from the Editor...
In our last issue, our diminutive editor Danielle Rogers remarked that summer has arrived. Indeed it has and she is off cavorting on a white water adventure somewhere in eastern Tennessee with her siblings, parents and scores of kids and grandkids. It's a combination family vacation and early celebration of her 37th birthday (Sunday, July 29).
Mrs. Rogers didn't flinch when we asked her to put her Samford University degree in Mass Communications to work as editor of our newsletter. She should have, but now she's stuck with us, and from the entire MITM team and family, best wishes for a very happy birthday to Danielle.
One other note, you can meet Madame Editor and her mother, Lynn Plummer, as they join us in the battle against breast cancer. They will walk with Team Martini Sunday, Sept. 23 in the Orange County Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. More on that in this newsletter as we talk to "long time" MITM listeners Cyndy Noto and Jennifer Cooley. Jennifer is about to begin her personal battle against breast cancer. Also in this issue:
- Fun & Games Department majordomo Lauren Brunjes has details on how you can help in the fight against breast cancer
- From our Foreign Desk in London, Danni Chaso has Olympic observations and a chance for you to win London Olympics memorabilia (SEE CONTEST INFORMATION BELOW!!)
- Cooking tips worthy of the Olympics from an MITM listener with a new pleated hat
- The first in a series on great Jazz clubs starts in Hollywood
And finally, the hidden olive is back. Find it and you could be one of three newsletter readers to win official London Olympics memorabilia so cool you'll forget that you didn't actually attend the games.
2 Runners-Up Prizes
Hidden somewhere within the newsletter is a small picture of an olive. If you find the olive, click on it and you'll be routed to the email address set up for this contest. If the link doesn't work for you, submit your name and the location of the olive to firstname.lastname@example.org and include "found the olive" in the subject line. On August 6, Danielle will draw the winner's name from all received submissions.
Keep in mind, the olive can be anywhere within the newsletter -- on the email portion or on a page containing a full story...
As always, we are so glad you've taken time to read our newsletter. Best of luck with the contest and stay cool!

What will I ramble about this time?
MITM: A Musical Parade of Nations
Just hours from now, over 10,000 athletes from over 200 nations will open the games of the 30th Olympiad. The opening ceremonies production "Isles of Wonder" will be filled with pomp and entertainment. But for me, the highlight of the opening spectacle is the Parade of Nations. Each country enters behind their national flag as well as a sign announcing the origin of the team. That is the moment I drive my family and anyone else around crazy, as I begin a barrage of comments, each more excited than the one before, "Hey, we have listeners there." Click here to read about the MITM Parade of Nations.

GREAT JAZZ CLUBS
OF THE WORLD:
CATALINA JAZZ CLUB
First in a Series
Like Martini in the Morning, there are clubs across the USA and around the world, dedicated to presenting Jazz in all its forms. This series on the great Jazz clubs of the world will feature those clubs, like us, that specialize in vocal Jazz, especially artists who perform from the group of songs often referred to as The Great American Songbook. Our series begins where we began - in Hollywood at Catalina Jazz Club.

A lot of serious things in this issue, in the news and around the world, it seems. So it's time for something fun. MITM has joined world famous Lola's Restaurant, 945 North Fairfax Avenue in West Hollywood, for a live Saturday brunch broadcast. From 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Pacific, join Al the Engineer, Mother Miriam and me for what we've nicknamed the "Many Martinis Brunch." Lola's is well known as the home of the apple martini, but their popular Saturday and Sunday brunch menu includes such breakfast cocktails as "Fruit Loops Martinis," "Cinnamon Toast Crunch Martinis," and some less exotic tastes like cantaloupe, pear and of course their signature apple martini. If you're in SoCal, please join us for the broadcast, sponsored by Hangar One Vodka.
Another new feature is Happy Hour Live. The idea is to take the show to you - to your home, your business, any place with a bar. We broadcast live Fridays from 2 p.m.-6 p.m. Pacific, with a toast as each U.S. time zone reaches 5 p.m., happy hour and the weekend. If you'd like to host Happy Hour Live, click here and we'll bring Martini in the Morning to you!
Thanks for listening and reading!
