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,

48 hours to stop Russia's gay hate law

It is with disturbing news that I share with you that Human rights will be horribly violated in about 48 hours in Russia's Bill to allow hate crimes against Gay, Lesibian, Transgender, Bisexual people.  Laws that impact any Human Rights in a negative way, could be YOUR next fight, stop violations now! Thank you

In 48 hours, Russia's capital city could outlaw homosexuality -- banning gay groups, parades, even kissing in public. Already, international outcry caused St. Petersburg to delay the vote until Wednesday. Now we have just 48 hours to stop this bill for good. Click below to call on world leaders to end Russia's gay hate law:

Sign the petition!

In 48 hours, Russia's capital city could outlaw homosexuality -- banning gay groups, parades, even kissing in public. Just in time, an international movement to end the hate is growing and we can supercharge its fight for tolerance and human rights.

Russia's local politicians are peddling hate -- attacking gays to win a few votes with extremists, votes they need to maintain their political majority. Already, international outcry caused St. Petersburg to delay the vote until Wednesday -- now we have just 48 hours to stop this bill for good.

Let's stand up for tolerance -- sign the urgent petition to world leaders demanding they speak up for human rights in Russia before Wednesday's vote:

The gay hate laws started in Ryazan, then moved to St. Petersburg, the capital of Russia. Now Moscow, where a mayor who has called gay citizens "faggots" and "satanic" is about to approve his own version of the bill. All of these laws make gay "propaganda" illegal, and have been used to shut down all gay rights organizations and levy fines against people who are open about their homosexuality.

Russia has supported many famous gay artists, scholars and organizers including national celebrity Yury Bogatyrev and world renowned pianist Sviatoslav Richter. But these municipal politicians are playing on the hatred of a small minority to gain the votes they need to win local elections -- peddling hate to secure control over Russia's capital city.

International outcry has already worked -- delaying the vote and winning us an extra 48 hours to stop the law for good. Join in the call for tolerance and human rights and forward this email to your friends and family:

Just months ago we built a million strong petition to oppose the gay death penalty in Uganda -- and the bill was shelved! Now we can come together again to protect human tights in Russia, proving that our ten million strong community can overpower any pocket of hate and intolerance on the planet.

With hope,

Emma, Mia, Ricken, Giulia, Pascal and the whole Avaaz team
