“Let’s give them something to talk about” was the theme when the Southern California Chapter of Meetings Professionals International (MPISCC) gathered at The Beverly Hilton on June 7 of their 2017 Board Installation & Awards Gala. The evening lived up to that message with entertainment by The Amani Experience and Hey Miser DJ, opera singer Kala Maxym, the band STADIUM, and a surprise performance by the Gay Men’s Chorus of Los Angeles. The threecourse dinner was complemented by pairings from Carmel’s award-winning Folktale Winery & Vineyards.

California is officially out of its drought, thanks to a very rainy winter, and among the many wonderful benefits is a spectacular flower season. Nowhere is this more resplendently in view than at The Flower Fields at Carlsbad Ranch. I recently spent a couple of gorgeous hours touring the 50 acres of the working farm that are devoted to the Tecolote Giant Ranunculus, also known as the Persian Buttercup or Ranunculus Asiatic.
