In MASAYA, Nicaragua, hundreds of dogs, many dressed as babies or clowns, were taken to celebrate mass in this Nicaraguan town on Sunday, an annual ritual where the owners pray for their pets to be cured or avoid falling ill.

A long queue of Catholics, carrying their pets or leading them on leashes, waited their turn to pass by an image of a saint in a tiny church in this town 20 miles to the south of the Nicaragua capital, Managua.

The faithful thank the saint for curing their pets or ask for the dogs to be protected from illness. The town’s priest always conducts a special canine mass.

“We brought him so he does not get sick,” said local resident Nora Espinosa, talking about her six month old Basset Hound, dressed in a soccer outfit.

Locals say the tradition goes back to the colonial period after the Spanish conquest.

From Somerville, Massachusetts, a Massachusetts company has fired up a Web site
dedicated to women who are obsessed with shoes called, naturally enough,
Shoetube.tv

The Web site, operated by Powderhouse Productions, based in Somerville, Mass.,
features instructional videos and fashion tips, The Washington Times reported.

“Shoes are universal, women love them. They connect like nobody’s business,
” Powderhouse Productions Creative Director Bill Lattanzi said.

The Web site, with a reported core staff of four people and multiple freelancers, will
offer weekly videos, daily clips and blogs. The site also encourages users to post
videos, the newspaper said.

“Alternate your shoe choice and height from one day to the next, or from day to night.
Wear a pretty ballet flat one day and romp around in your beloved platforms the next,
” a blogger wrote on the site.

Powderhouse, which also produces for PBS and the Discovery Channel, was looking for
a fun project for the company when it got the concept from the Hello Stiletto Shoe club
in Boston, Lattanzi said.

I am afraid that I am a shoe lover, myself.

Can one ever have enough shoes…?

There are so many adorable, sexy shoes out there it makes my heart go weak.

“After all it is the ability to accessorize, that separates us from the primates”…and you can quote me on that!

In from NEW YORK
Victoria’s Secret executives and designers voted, and they think Ryan Seacrest has the sexiest smile.

Ryan Seacrest was chosen for his “subtle and innocent” smile.

The “American Idol” host is on the lingerie company’s 2008 What Is Sexy? list, along with Eva Mendes and Josh Holloway.

“What’s sexy about (Seacrest) is he doesn’t act like he is,” Victoria’s Secret spokeswoman Monica Mitro told The Associated Press in a phone interview. “We felt that his smile was quite sexy, in a very subtle and innocent and humble way.”

The team of executives and designers who compiled the list looked for attributes such as “passion and humor and style and charisma,” Mitro said.

Mendes is the sexiest actress; Holloway, who plays Sawyer on ABC’s “Lost,” is the sexiest beach body; Victoria “Posh Spice” Beckham, who has three sons with husband David Beckham, is the sexiest mom; and Katherine Heigl and her husband, musician Josh Kelley, are the sexiest newlyweds.

Other sexy celebs: Eric Bana (actor), Chris Brown (male musician), Dane Cook (funnyman), Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo (male athlete), Rihanna (female musician), Justin Chambers (dad), “Gossip Girl” Blake Lively (newcomer), and Fergie and Josh Duhamel (couple).

Scarlett Johansson was honored for her sexy style, Jessica Biel for her lips, Kate Bosworth for her eyes and Ali Larter for her legs.

ABC’s “Dirty Sexy Money,” which co~stars Peter Krause and William Baldwin, has the sexiest cast, according to the list.

Victoria’s Secret supermodel-spokeswomen, including Selita Ebanks, Adriana Lima and Karolina Kurkova, were to host a party in Scottsdale, Arizona, on Saturday, the eve of the Super Bowl, to honor the list makers.

Lima hosts a one hour special “Victoria’s Secret: What Is Sexy? 2008,” which is scheduled to air February 9 on E! Entertainment Television. It was produced by E! and Ryan Seacrest Productions. Seacrest is host of the channel’s “E! News” entertainment news program.

Mitro said Victoria’s Secret put the list together before E! committed to producing the special.

“Ryan came to our fashion show in November and he had the best smile on our red carpet,” Mitro said. “He was an easy choice for us.”

I could NOT care less what VICTORIA SECRET thinks is sexy…they do not make sexy clothes over size 16 and that would be ME! THEREFORE, they must not think me SEXY!

I called them once to ask why they didn’t make SEXY clothes for people over size 14 and they said ” oh please go visit our sister store Layne Bryant.” SO, I guess I will not be wearing any SIZE discriminate Victoria Secret. If I wanted Lane Bryant on my lingerie…there would be a fatal flaw in my personality.

I wouldn’t be watching who Victoria Secret thinks is sexy…and I hope that young girls won’t be either so that they don’t have misconceptions on what IS SEXY. There are enough young girls starving their selves to death.
