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,

Movember Month for Prostrate Cancer

November is MOVEMBER month.  A month to raise awareness and funds to help find a cure for this disease which take the life of too many good men and family members.
Delta St. John's, Newfoundland take the challenge yearly to raise not only awareness but funds for cancer research to find a cure.
As a breast cancer survivor, I know the importance of raising awareness and funds to find a cure.  Today, we still see October a month for breast cancer awareness, such as Run For the Cure.
Every time we hear of someones loved one dying of prostrate cancer, we sadly hang our head thinking could this person have been saved. 

We know that to lose someone we love over a disease such as cancer, is a loss beyond human suffering.  Cancer is such an ugly word but we take the power out of the word when we face our foe one on one.  I won't let this cancer word take over my life.  It had taken years away from me and changed me a lot physically, but it won't and I won't let it, take control of my life.

This November month you CAN make a difference in the life of someone and their family, friends and co-workers but donating and/or make a fundraiser for Movember at your work, your neighborhood, faith groups or with a bunch of friends.  You, we, all of us can help make a difference in the lives of many.
