<I>Ladies of Rylstone</I>

Before there was The Full Monty, there were the Ladies of Rylstone. A few years ago, a group of middle-aged women in the tiny town of Rylstone, England, decided to try a new twist on an old fundraising opportunity. They were part of a charity organization called the Women's Institute, and one day they joked that it would be fun to do a calendar -- a girlie, pin-up calendar. In the nude. The result was $750,000 raised for leukemia research. Lisa talks with Tricia Stewart, Miss October, and Angela Baker, Miss February. In the new Ladies of Rylstone calendar, they're dressed in little more than a string of pearls.
