My many adventures

Hi Folks, sorry I deleted my paragraph where I tell you all about all the places I've been to.
I'm blessed since surviving 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 want to visit.
I've been to Scotland, England, Victoria BC, an Alaskan cruise, a fab Mediterranean cruise which took us to Barcelona, the Vatican & Rome, the island of Crete, Izmir & SulcukEphesus 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...


Hi Folks! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a beautiful honeymoon to Calabogie Lodge in Ontario. The resort was all wood interior with two bedrooms and the master suite with a bed so big. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. Glad they enjoyed their first vacation ever! His brother loaned them his BMW which drove like a dream.

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 had my annual cancer check up and everything was great! It makes me so happy unfortunately, my doctor had to retire due to illness and I am trying to get a family doctor. It is horrible when you don't have someone who looks after you and knows you.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy 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.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Movember Month at Delta St. John's, NL - Prostate Cancer Fundraiser

My first hotel visit to the Delta St. John's was greeted by a number of employees wearing and growing mustaches.  I began to get curious so I asked the Bell Captain, Rob Fardy.  Well!  I received the friendliest greeting and an explanation of why they are growing their mustaches. 

Apparently, one of the workers has a friend whose father is going through prostate cancer so he began this fundraiser about 2 years ago.  His name is Andrew Winter.  Hats off to you Andrew, your efforts will help so many and raise awareness to find and fund cures for men suffering from prostate cancer.  Any one can go on the official site and make a donation and or show support by starting your own Movember.  The site is  What a wonderful action by a group of workers.  Thank you to all who are participating and supporting these incredible fundraisers.

Andrew Winter is on the left and Rob Fardy (the funny, friendly guy) is on the right.  Another brave man stands in front of the beautiful Christmas trees that will be auctioned off for cancer as well.  Then we have another brave soul, Ewen MacKenzie, who not only grew a mustached, but also shaved his head for the Braille fundraiser in Feb. 2010.  Delta St. John's certainly has a wide group of employees and volunteers who go out of their way to show they can and that together, we can all make a difference.  So, please go to their fundraising site and donate and participate, because it's still Movember!!
