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,

Shark Pro-Steam Cleaner- a Euro-Pro product

Well hi everyone!  I have an actual Shark Steam Pro cleaner as seen on TV.  This product's ability to clean our floors is astounding!  I'm taking the opportunity to do a complete review for you on this Shark Steam Cleaner, I will post it as soon as I am finished trying all the usage this Steam Cleaner can do.

Since I have a child with asthma and other disabilities, having a very clean floor can make his health better while providing me a clean home.  Presently I had a B a steam cleaner, but it leaves my floors wet.  I have a lot of wood floors, so this is not good for them to be wet.  My daughter Mandy was the recipient of the B steam cleaner.  She apparently loves it, so one never knows.

The Shark Pro-Steam Cleaner is so easy to use.  It glides over your floors.  The floors are not wet or soaked.  The buttons to use for either of the three settings are on the front of the Steamer and you just push once for dust, push again for mop and push again for scrub.  I have also used it over my good carpet.  It refreshes the carpet.  I have four cats so a refresher is really needed in my house. 

The cleaner flips over to the other side of the micro-fiber cloth, which is thick and soft, so I don't worry about scratching my floors.  Its ability to rotate and move all around comes in really handy when your cleaning under furniture.  It comes with extra clothes as well.  I washed the micro-fiber clothes already and they come out just like new!  The triangle cloth with the triangle casing is great for harder to get at sites.  But to be honest, I find I can get into almost anywhere I need to get with the regular micro-fiber rectangle cloth set.

The handle of the Cleaner is a large, round handle which is so easy to use.  I don't have to hold down any buttons to keep the steam going.  Once I press my button to where I want it to be, the steam begins and within a minute or less, I have the steam I need to scour my floors and make them sanitized and clean.  What a wonderful invention.  Usually you see an info-commercial and the doubt begins to form in your head but this Shark Pro-Steam Cleaner is all it says it is and does.

Since I have such bad knees now, I have actually sat on my sofa and cleaned my hardwood floors around me with the Steam Cleaner.  It is so easy to push and pull and clean my floors.

It has an exceptionally long cord, so it goes just about anywhere in my house.  When I unplug the Steamer, it cools quickly.  The water fill up is so easy to use.  The water lasts longer with this steamer than my other one.  I don't use tap water, so if you don't want to buy sterile water, then pour water from your tap into a container and let it sit for a few days.

Any way you slice it, this is a great product!  I'll post pictures later.
