Letter from the Publisher April 2017

"We have a Lord who is capable of crying with us and capable of walking with us in the most difficult moments of life." - Pope Francis


Dear Life Bites News Readers,

Easter is always an amazing experience, and our Pope Francis is inspiring renewed faith to people around the world. I emplore you to pray for peace this Easter season, we need to stay connected to the God we love at this challenging time.
Mother's Day is nearly upon us and is a time to think about spoiling our mom or reflecting on the wonderful times we had with her during her life. We have some nice gift ideas in our gift section for mom or in our spa baby sections. Below you will find a few recipes for Spring and we hope you enjoy them.


I relived a fun visit to Guinness Storehouse in March, where I was given a certificate on pouring a perfect pint - hope you enjoy the tricks to doing it right! Hotel/Chef feature is on the Kimpton Goodland in Golets, and it will attract anyone who loves a back to the past experience to chill out on the California coats. Story on Irish charm in Santa Barbara can be found in Culinary Coup. See some nice new product introductions on healthy choices seen at the Natural Product Expo West show, and interesting news in our Health Minded section.

"Wheels" by air section offers some exciting news on hot private jet designs, and auto coverage. Amtrak travel by private train car from LA to SLO. TinselTown Tidbits & Travel news on hot travel destinations, film openings, and Victoria on PBS. Viking Ocean Cruises have gotten major accolades on their service and travel destinations around the world - Viking is a major sponsor for PBS, and I love their cruises and their support of this fine programing. Visit www.vikingcruises.com.

Please Support PBS!


SBIFF Tribute Recipients Emma Stone, Denzel Washington & Bryan Gosling

Congratulatulations to SBIFF and OSCARS 2016 winners and nomininees. Especially to all the wonderful talents of La La Land, Fences, and so many more. I loved seeing Bryan Gosling interview in Santa Barbara; such a credit to Canada.  Health Minded offers some wonderful health coverage for your enjoyment. Sips will include some great wine events and liquid news.

It was a Happy St. Pat's In Santa Barbara, where Irish Style was everywhere to enjoy. See story on top Irish restaurants Dargan's & La Arcada Bistro, and The James Joyce Pub, where Irishmen and ladies, along with those who wished they were Irish celebrated the great saint who drove the snakes out of Ireland. Story in Travel section. Slainte! The Natural Product Show West was a very successful event this year and attracted thousands to the Anaheim Convention Center. The Los Angeles Travel Show was also very well attended this year.
