The Council on Alcoholism and Drug Abuse (CADA) gave its 11th Annual Gratitude Luncheon, this time at the Hilton Santa Barbara Beachfront Resort. We were outside in the Rotunda under a tent.

Giving Tuesday is Here and We’ve Got Your Giving List
By Gwyn Lurie   |   November 30, 2021

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times of year. I love how the holiday allows us to reflect and give gratitude before we launch into the rest of the end-of-year holidays. Oh, and I love the food. This year I find Thanksgiving especially poignant. For those not felled by COVID, we’re coming up on the […]

We just want to take this opportunity to tell you how grateful we are for you, our beloved community, for all the ways you’ve inspired us with your generosity, come through in spades for your community, been through the worst of times and stood so strong, and made this just one of the finest places […]

Giving Thanks
By Montecito Journal   |   November 30, 2021

This past year has been really tough (COVID-19, inflation, supply chain problems, etc.). However, when things get tough, it is exactly when we need to give thanks. Our Founding Fathers and great leaders understood that giving thanks and expressing gratitude matters in the face of adversity. It gives us hope, emotionally. Giving thanks for what […]

By Rinaldo Brutoco   |   December 3, 2020

The cover of the November 14 issue of The Economist is a picture of a curving tunnel with bright light at the end emanating from a hypodermic syringe.

Gratitude: Not Just for Thanksgiving
By Steven Libowitz   |   November 22, 2018

It might be obvious to state that Thanksgiving week could be the perfect time to launch a gratitude practice. The holiday stress can be greatly reduced by remembering all that we are grateful for in our lives.

Social gridlock reigned when Calcagno & Hamilton, the Coast Village Road realtors, hosted its third annual Gratitude party with 200 guests spilling out on the ritzy rue’s sidewalk. The company, which recently opened a Goleta office, pulled out all the stops for the bustling bash, catered by Richard Maxwell‘s The Bending Fork, and featuring ace […]

Downward Dog, Meet Upright Goat
By Steven Libowitz   |   November 15, 2018

Goat yoga, the phenomenon of practicing poses amid wandering full-grown goats and kids that began barely two years ago in Oregon, has made its way down the coast to our little slice of Eden-By-The-Sea. Goat yoga actually showed up in Isla Vista last December, and apparently the latest trend is here to, pardon me, namaste, […]

Ty-High Gala of Gratitude
By Richard Mineards   |   April 19, 2018

Montecito firefighters were out in force at the San Ysidro Ranch, but there were no flames to extinguish or new mudslides to clear up. Just the opportunity for more than 100 blaze busters and other VIP guests to enjoy the bounteous hospitality of Beanie Baby billionaire Ty Warner, who hosted a dinner party in a […]
