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,

Every Day Living and travel

Have you ever woken up one morning and asked yourself, what and where am I going in this life? Or why is my life like this?  I did and do. 

I have faced many challenges over my life.  Many challenges have put me to the test, my cancer travel, my health deteration throughtout my entire body.  Bringing up two grandchildren who face mulitiply challenges themselves.  The heavy rains recently again flooded my basement and everything is ruined.  Insurance won't cover it unless they can see a drain.  A few volunteers took everything out of the basement and put it in my yard and they then took up the basement floor, down to the concrete.  The concrete is all cracked, the door frame is rotted and rain poured in there.  I have a guy who will pick up the "junk" for $400 so I guess I'll get that done when I return home.  I don't know how I'll be able to get the foundation fixed so please say a little prayer for me.  I believe in prayer because HE has been with me through so much.

I am able to turn to my blog and share valuable travel adventures (which I still have so many to post & write about).  I do reviews on products & other things.  I like to give my opinion and share pictures on hotels I stay in.  I do so much travel but I really love to travel.  I wish I had my life at the beginning again because now I know what I want to do when I grow up!! (ha ha)

The little guy Rialey keeps me going.  Because of our publicly funded and delivered health care, the Children's IWK Hospital with the mental heath units have provided the greatly needed care and service to help him grow up to be a normal boy.  I take more pills than I care to post here but I am trying to get myself healthier by swimming and trying to eat better.

I find the Delta hotel chain have some of the most comfortable beds.  Recently I travelled to New Glasgow, Nova Scotia and stayed at the Country Inn and Suites and it was absolutely wonderful!  The bed was just as comfortable as the Deltas and the interrior of the Inn was so quaint.  The hot breakfast they serve in the morning was wonderful and everything home made.  I don't think anyone would be disappointed.  I do have pictures and I will post later.

The girls who came to Kauai, Hawaii with me want to look at another adventure.  I think it came about because some of them were looking at our Kauai trip and want to go back.  I should have been a travel agent, because I would have loved it!

Well, I have to get up early tomorrow and travel again, actually every week up until Christmas so please keep checking my blog and write a note or two to me, as I would love to answer you.

Thanks for letting me blow off steam.
