The Canary Hotel in downtown Santa Barbara, California is located on Carrillo Street, and is one of those locations that deserves a second look-over if you are visiting in the area. It is a luxury, boutique hotel owned and operated by the Kimpton chain. It boosts a mixture of Spanish and Moroccan influences and is the only full-service hotel in the downtown center area.
Travel journalist SLICK TRACY (Hotel Detective & Food Sleuth) reviews his recent stay-over at the Canary Hotel, courtesy of the Toyota company, to preview the new Toyota Highlander vehicle.
In his pursuit of "the good, the bad, and the ugly", SLICK TRACY has determined that the Canary Hotel is definitely one of the "good" ones.
Andrew Wigger, executive chef of Frame restaurant, digs into the California influences at the Hotel Pullman Paris Eiffel Tower’s restaurant and how their garden makes them farm-to-table. Then he talks about the surprise on the roof (bees!), and how they use the honey in the restaurant and as gifts.
Vacations have the ability to create the mood for romance and sex. That is why couples plan romantic get-aways, and newly weds go on honeymoons. The right environment, somewhere other than home hightens the likelyhood of more and better sex.
Older relationships in need of a fresh spark, find a vacation just the thing to hit the nail on the head, or nail it - in bed.
The after effects of getting the bill for an off-budget, debt-financed excursion, can take a bit away from the memory, when you feel miserable about paying for it later.
Many couples wait to get married simply because they are waiting till they can afford the honeymoon. WAIT NO MORE!

Vacations, how often, how many stars, destination, experiences; (or the lack of), are a major lifestyle statement.
On this side of the recession, in my work with helping folks achieve debt-free wealth, I come across many who switched from wanton wastefulness, to deep depravity - excluding vacations, in an attempt to restore financial stability. While the reason is noble, the process is not fun, and makes work more miserable. We should work to live, not live to work.
This online tool may just be the answer to restoring some fun, love, and quality family time, regardless of your budget.

on September 20, 1918, Padre Pio was praying in the choir loft in the Church of Our Lady of Grace, when the same Being who appeared to him on August 5, appeared again. It was the wounded Christ. When the ecstasy ended, Padre Pio had received the Visible Stigmata, the five wounds of Christ, which would stay with him for his remaining 50 years.
By early 1919, word about the stigmata began to spread to the outside world. Over the years countless people, including physicians, examined Padre Pio’s wounds. Padre Pio was not interested in the physicians’ attempts to explain his stigmata. He accepted it as a gift from God, though he would have preferred to suffer the pains of Christ’s Passion without the world knowing.
God used Padre Pio – especially the news of his stigmata – to give people hope as they began to rebuild their life after the war. Padre Pio and his spiritual gifts of the stigmata, perfume, prophecy and bilocation was a sign of God in their midst and led people back to their Faith. So life at the friary and the Church of Our Lady of Grace began to revolve around Padre Pio’s ministry. A room and priests were designated to handle the correspondence and the remaining friars heard confessions. San Giovanni Rotondo began to be filled with pilgrims. Since there were no hotels, people slept outdoors. A normal day for Padre Pio was a busy nineteen hours – Mass, hearing confessions and handling correspondence. He usually had less than two hours to sleep.
