Congratulations to KATE HUDSON for being nominated for Best Supporting Actress for her role as Penny Lane in Almost Famous. KATE and my "hija" JESSIE grew up together as youngsters and was considered part of our family. MAMAS AND PAPAS: Our congratulations also go out to Mama GOLDIE HAWN and "Pops" KURT RUSSELL for being such good parents, they're a terrific family. KURT taught JESSIE how to ski and one summer she went with the entire Hawn/Russell clan on a bicycling trip through the wine country of France...an experience she will always remember.

PRINCETON PUPPIES AND BRENTWOOD BELLES
My nephew, MIKE THE HUNK, and eight of his pals were visiting Z for the first time during their spring break from Princeton University. Z-Kaptivating KAT took them in tow and they all had a blast sunning in Troncones, funning on Playa La Ropa while parasailing and catching lobsters in the bay, surf-kayaking at Las Gatos and dancing the night away at the clubs in Ixtapa. Thanks to Ms. Real Estate Agent Extraordinaire my "happyminium" was intact and singing! Later in the week my youngest "hija" CHELSEA and her friends CHRISSY and JACKIE from Brentwood, Ca. joined in on the fun before the "pups" had to return to college. They almost "accidentally-on-purpose" missed their plane back to the East Coast but thanks to Auntie J (that would be me) they departed for the States on time.
