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 SiteHoundSniffs.com 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,

Debbie

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 http://ca.movember.com/  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!!  http://ca.movember.com/
