Ruby has been collecting for decades now and some extraordinarily fine pieces have passed through her hands. And although collectors have purchased many superior pieces, there's always something new to see at the Sands.
This is a great piece, sadly not one of Ruby's, but illustrative of the many fine works in the always changing display at the Sands. C'mon over and take a look.

She was the last of the true New York Socialites--a group of influential, smart, and dedicated women whose imprint on the town will be felt long after they vanish.
Before the crass celebrities of today, the town was lit at night by socialites who made things happen: they gave to all the charitable causes, supported the arts, bolstered the early careers of emerging playwrights, painters, composers, poets, and writers.
They set the cultural direction of the town and were the cultural power behind wealthy, influential husbands. The great monuments of New York -- the Met, the Philharmonic, the Guggenheim, and others too numerous to name -- are their legacy to subsequent generations.
Unlike the celebrity women of today who are often of meager talent and zero philanthropic impact, socialites were dedicated to the city, not to fame. While today's celebrity occupies headlines for failing at rehab, stealing someone else's husband, making a movie that is a remake of a better movie from another era, the women of Carlisle-Hart's generation built things of substance and enduring quality to improve the city and the lives of those who live there. They were the early architects of women's philanthropy and we owe them a debt of gratitude for the many works they labored over so tirelessly.
Thank you, Kitty. We will miss you.
We recently watched that classic Angelica Houston, John Cussack, Annette Benning flick "The Grifters." If you haven't seen it, it is dyn-o-mite. You just don't mess with Angelica.

This is a great shot of Joshua Tree National Park, just minutes from The Coral Sands. Our guests love hiking this place and you can see why. The desert's Spring flowers are something to see!
Send in your own photos of the desert or your Cub Reporter articles and we'll put 'em up here.

I thought it would be fun to take a tour of some of the finer examples of vintage post cards, illustrations, and architectural renderings.
This is fun. I promise you.
Isn't this place just too much?
I LOVE it!
And a very special thank you to all the bloggers and site builders out there who are preserving these essential bits of Paln Springsianna. With out you, we'd be lost. Thank you.

Chums Gay and Rebecca felt the achievement warranted a nickname and quickly dubbed their ace pal "Hole" to commemorate the spectacular shot.
Just behind them on the 6th green at Franklin Canyon, Joanie's ball is sitting in the cup waiting for Joanie to come get her and give her a big smooch.
It could not have happened to a nicer Sander than our gal Joanie.
Hooray, Joanie, we love you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We had a great response and The Sands wants to thank everyone who played. We couldn't have anticipated all the amazing thought that went into this and we are just blown by your creativity and wit.
Y'all stay tuned.
