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! My daughter and her new husband went to their 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. 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.

So looking forward to the summer with fresh air & warm summer nights. Spring here is pretty good too.

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.

Thanks friends,

Dinosaur Named Sue in Halifax!!

We can't believe it, we really had a dinosaur named Sue in Halifax at our Museum of Natural History on Bell and Summer Street!  The kids loved it!  My friend and I took the boys to see "Sue".  She was all pink and pretty.  I can't believe how long she was and how big.

Imagine coming up on her if she were alive today, no way... I'd be elsewhere, as the saying goes.  Her length and height were amazing.  The museum even had a board where you could press a button and smell certain animals back then smelled like, whew ooh, they stink.  No getting around that.  There were heads of dinosaurs and other parts throughout the museum.  But the one area the kids couldn't wait to go, was the museum shop afterwards.  Luckily I had some money on me.

It is great to take kids and ourselves to see the wonders that others put together for us to view and enjoy nature's wonders.  Our children need to be part of this culture and to have the opportunity to visit our museums.  Many schools take the children on excursions to museums and other historic places so they can take in the rich culture, the history of our past and see the way towards the future.  After all, it is theirs to make.  Enjoy!

what a whif here!!
