Benjamin Carson, M.D.

I was fortunate to share my table to the Ben Carson lecture at the Fess Parker Doubletree Resort which was attended by almost 800 people from the Santa Barbara community.


Benjamin Carson, M.D., is a renowned pediatric neurosurgeon who performed the first successful separation of twins conjoined at the back of the head.


He spoke on the many medical concerns looming in the future as well as his views on the necessity of schools to encourage the students to be unique and excel.

Santa Barbara Solstice Parade – CREATURES

The Summer Solstice Parade began in 1974. The Parade and Music Festival is the largest arts event in Santa Barbara County drawing crowds of over 100,000 spectators from around the world.


The festival features great costumes and large colorful floats representing a different theme each year and celebrating the longest day.  This year’s theme was CREATURES.

Halloween at the Bacara Resort

Hope everyone had a good time for Halloween. I enjoyed Bacara with my family for their annual party and costume contest.  My kids did well but ultimately Mrs. Doubtfire won.
