Dear Life Bites News Readers,
My hometown airport is now flying direct to Denver, Colorado and our Hotel/Chef profile is a report on Four Seasons Denver with information on all their upscale ammenities and an introduction to their chef as well as bites on The Fontaine Hotel in Kansas City.
Please enjoy our hotel/chef profile on Four Seasons Denver and Chef Jessica Beiderman. A great property winter through summer with typical outstanding Four Seasons service and comfort.
Four Seasons Hotel Denver
The weather in Austria, Hungary, Germany Italy, Switzerland, France, or just about any place abroad is perfect now for sightseeing, outdoor dining, window shopping or just strolling on the boulevard in Paris with your special someone. Many of my travel writer friends are on assigment and are traveling. This is ususally the perfect time to Cruise the rivers in Europe on Viking River Cruise ships and savor the sights and flavors they offer but the Pandemic has created some route challenges. Keep checking travel sources for current restrictions.
I've been getting great reports from writer friends who are boarding planes and traveling to far away destinations on how compliant the airlines are being, as well as hotels. Author and friend Leslie Zemekis has been sending reports on her work in Paris and London during her extended stay and it is so appreciated.
My personal experience locally has been very impressive...masks, gloves, disinfectant, distancing all in place. People are booking cruises for 2021-22 on Viking and other lines but are keeping their fingers crossed.
2022 Vikiing Cruises are in full swing again.
Our October issue is filled with great stories on health and lifestyle. Also, celebrity Emmy news and photos. Culinary Coup has some great recipes and information on openings and closings. The travel section has a fun Coasting with Bonnie Carroll on Solvang "Denmark in America" and BookBites has some interesting reads to take along on short or long trips and a few fall cookbooks. Spa Baby Secrets shares news on several fine spas and the popularity of home massage treatments.

We all see the political horror show happening in the Ukraine and must pray for an end to it I am also asking you to please look at the facts and VOTE to protect America! I am no longer a republican due to the circus created by our previous president, who has caused an insurection and death in our Capitol and is organizing his thugs on live TV to harm innocent Americans as I write this. The confusion and danger those lies have caused everyone are vile. I thank God President Biden was elected, but pray for him trying to clean up the former presidents messes as well as handle extremely serious problems facing US Citizens ongoing.
Pray for our young men and women fighting in foreign countries. They need our prayers -- they need to come home safely! May God help the victims of sensless attacks in Europe and around the world. Pray for our President Joe Biden and Kamala Harris VP.
Support your local restaurants, hotels and business' and let's give America a renewed strength and abundance of growth.
