Have you been to the Luxor in Las Vegas? Have you been to Disneyland…or to any of the ornate casinos around the country? Then you know about those very large ornate statues and the ornate building facades. Alan Roy Carrington, mold-maker, artist, and former rock-n-roller on South Padre Island, is one of the creators of those structures. He joined us from Salt Lake City, Utah to talk about how they are created. This is quite an interesting process. You can find out more about it at: www.Western-Architectual.com. You can contact Alan at his FB page for more information (Alan Roy Carrington on Facebook).
ALSO… I spoke about the health risks of Sugar, the Sugar-Depression and Sugar-Anxiety link, as well as why you want to eat more sugar once you start (Sugar is addictive and has actually been found to be more addictive than cocaine!). I also spoke about how to break the sugar addiction and get back on track!
After the show, producer of this show, Art Mendoza of Accomplice Entertainment, sat in and played a few songs with one of my favorite dance bands, Area Code, from NYC, right here at the Isla Grand Hotel (in the Quaterdeck).
