Publishers Letter June 2016

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

"A father is one who carries pictures where his money used to be." - Unknown Author

Letter from the Publisher June 2016

Dear Life Bites Readers,
I wish to honor all the great men who influenced my life, especially the men I was never married to who just loved me, imparted knowledge, and opened doors for me along the way to help me be the best Bonnie I could be. They include priests, professors, publishers, bosses, friends and relatives.
I loved my dad and appreciate more today than ever what he went through as a victim of PTSD when he returned from battle in WWII. His love and kindness were an inspiration to me always. My thanks to the ocean of great men that I never knew who totally inspired me through their contributions to all the things I love. Men who inspired me to be the best I could be in every way. God Bless you all and I thank you so much where ever you are.

See the story on the new GRACE Hotel in Marrakech, a divine respite in the dessert for the ultimate escape. Entertainment has new information, some fun film tips as well on Cannes Film Festival.  SIPS offers fun beverage news.  I Madonnari was yet another grand event in Santa Barbara, and Fiesta is alive. Please support PBS.org and keep wonderful programming ongoing. Their new season is starting and we want to enjoy all the great shows for another year.

Our "Health Minded" section offers health and beauty secrets from the inside out. News on latest trends and medical announcements. Sense of Style is now a part of our Travel section. Don't miss details on the ISPA event 2016 at the Montage Hotel in Beverly Hills.
 
Be kind to the Dad in your life and perhaps use the recipes in our issue to please him, especially the Chile Relleno from Doc's in Taos, NM below, or grill him a steak using McCormick spices or Omaha Steak recipes. Without a husband I may resort to buying a bottle of Sauvage by Dior, pour it on my pillow, close my eyes and pretend Johnny Depp came back for another kiss. He needs some good energy right now with all the bad news being directed his way. He is a kind and gentle soul who loves women and children. His daughter Lily-Rose Depp, the new face of Chanel, adores him.
We hope your Father's Day is peaceful, happy and filled with love. God bless and we thank you for joining us this month. Look for summer holiday recipes and party ideas in this July issue, which will be devoted to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. For contact tolifebites@aol.com or writebc@aol.com.
Happy Birthday to my beautiful daughter Kathleen (May 30) and my beautiful granddaughter Natasha (June 6) and my screen heartthrop Johhny Depp (June 9).
.
Cordially,
Bonnie Carroll
