My many adventures

Hi Folks, I want to dedicate this first part to all the Houston people and now the Florida folks who were and are in the path of dangerous hurricanes. I pray for you, your family and your pets to get through this terrible time in your life. Some countries all around the world are facing flooding, mud slides and war, please send help, relief and prayers their way.

I survived breast cancer, to travel around the world to some of the many places I've always wanted to go. There are lots more places I still want to visit.

I've been to Scotland, England, Vancouver, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, Yukon, Alaska (Ketchikan, Juneau, Skagway), a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & Sulcuk, Ephesus Turkey, Egypt and Malta. I have been to Las Vegas, Hollywood LA, Cabo San Lucas, Orlando, Daytona Beach, Tampa, a Disney Cruise to Bahamas and Disney's Castaway Cay island, all over Canada and Hawaii and Pearl Harbour. We can add Cozumel, Costa Maya, Mexico, Belize City and Honduras. What a fabulous way to see the world!
Take the time to do the things you want to do because life is too short and if you wait until you can afford it, you'll likely never go. So get your plans ready and pick a place and start booking your trip. It is so worth it.
Thanks for dropping by. I have lots of posts to put up so stay tuned...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: September 7, 2017

Hi Folks! My daughter and her new husband have been married one year. WOW that went fast. Was invited to Toronto in July to receive an Honorary Membership award from my union PSAC/USGE. They even brought my grandson up with me. We visited Niagara Falls, CN Tower and went to Medieval Knights dinner theatre. We had such a fabulous time!

I still have a great deal of travel posts to put up. I want our vacations and travel to be shared with you all. I'm not sure of what our travel plans will be for 2017, but for 2016, I rested all the time. Retirement is so awesome!! I was able to take pictures of the summer's Totally Eclipse of the Moom, which I'll share with you here on a post. It was incredible for sure.
I just love summer! I hope the winter will be gentle to us.

Still trying to find my ancesters with the Foran/Forhan name. Apparently two brothers came over from Dublin, one was name Edward who had a son named Edward born in Prince Edward Island and he had a son named William who had my father. I love doing ancestry but it is very frustrating when you can get no further without the "parents" names.

I have so many posts to write about so please keep patience with me. I received a great posting from which looks to be a great animal site. Hope you enjoy it.

My granddaughter Layla moved back in so now the family is together again for a while. She is a musician and is going to Community College for a Certificate in Music Finance. She also wants to cook for a living because she just loves food and boy can she cook. I wanted to help her to go to Culinary School but we will have to wait to see when she finally makes up her mind.

My little guy Rialey is now 14 and is 6'1 1/2 ". He is so thoughtful of me and helps me a lot.

I really wanted to travel this year but since retirement, the money is too tight. I'll have to save up but I have all those beautiful memories to keep me smiling for now. Thankfully I have posted most here on my blod.

Take care my blogger friends.

Thanks friends,

Delta St.John's, Newfoundland travel review Nov. 2010

Well, I blogged some of the activities going on at the Delta St. John's, but my purpose is to write a review of my stay and travel.

The flight over was enjoyable but I was so tired, I fell asleep. The taxi to the hotel was a short ride with a typically friendly taxi driver.  This was my first stay at the Delta St. John's because I usually stay at the Sheridan but unless they give the aeroplan points I am entitled, I can't stay there.  The Delta was very friendly and beautifully decorated with Christmas cheer throughout the hotel. 

My room was located near the elevator.  The view from the room is not as nice as the Sheridan but it was still nice.  I had a water view.  My room was a good size with a king bed.  The flat screen TV, the small fridge and the free internet added to my delight!.  The maid service was outstanding.  She turned down my bed each evening and left 2 little chocolates on my sheets with a bottle of water.

The bathroom had a long  vanity but the tub needed a replacement as there was a few small chips on the bottom of the tub.  I always enjoy a free newspaper hanging on my door knob in the morning. 

The restaurant did not give great fish and chips.  Newfoundland is known for its cod fish and chips and there is no where is the world better, but sometimes a bad order happens and I got it!   But no worries, I'm sure it will be better next time.

The bed was so comfortable and cozy.  The clean smell of the sheets and the softness of the pillows and mattress and sheets was enough to help me fall fast asleep.

The friendliness of the staff was outstanding!  They are the ones who can really make your stay great.  Unfortunately I didn't get to swim in the pool, nor was I able to get any pictures, but next time.  I did hear that this Delta hotel had the warmest pool temperature.

The flight over to the Rock was fabulous but on the way back, the flight attendant didn't go out of his way to provide me the extra help since I am a person with a disability.  The trip into the Halifax airport with another airline staff was very positive and then off to home I went.  Finally back after another weekly travel.  One more business travel before our big cruise.  So sit back and enjoy the pictures of the Delta St. John's.
