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,

Glynmill Inn, Corner Brook, Newfoundland Update

Well, I did it again, I was in Corner Brook at the Glynmill Inn.  What a fabulous place to stay.  I highly recommend it!  The Inn is so historic and the staff are incredible!!  They had my key waiting for me when I got there very late at night. 

I tried booking my room through a 3rd party.  Never again!  As soon as I booked it, I realized what room they were booking me in and I didn't want that room so I ask to cancel it and I would contact Glynmill Inn myself.  The agent said it couldn't cancel it and that I had to go through another number.  He transferred me but it was the incorrect number.  That number was only for paid credit card rooms.  He transferred me again and stayed on the line to ensure I got the right number.  I did.  This agent was able to cancel my room and credit the $5.00 they charged for booking a hotel room for people.  Whew!  It is always best to contact a hotel yourself instead of getting someone you don't know to do it.  You know what you want, how you want it and where you want.  Be responsible for your own decision and get what YOU want.  I learned the hard way I guess.

I spoke directly to the front desk and they knew who I was.  I'm one of their best guest.  I asked to have any room but if they could get me the Tutor room, I'd be happy and if I could get it at the price they usually give me.  When I flew in to Deer Lake then took the long, dark drive to Corner Brook, I was tired and couldn't wait to relax.  I arrived after 12 midnight.  I had the best taxi driver and I felt very safe because the drive to Corner Brook from Deer Lake airport is also a highway that have a lot of moose crossing the road and I didn't want to end up dead.  I pre-arranged to have the same taxi pick me up and he drove all the way back to get me the next afternoon about 2 pm.

The evening I arrived and finished my meetings, I had a delicious turkey dinner by a young woman, who only just started working there when I began staying at the Glynmill about five years earlier.  Now she is a grown woman and still as smiley and friendly as anyone could ever ask of a server.  Thank you my dear, I hope you read this because you deserve praise along with the other staff, especially at the front desk.  I love ya!

I walked in the door of the Glynmill Inn and the front desk guy was waiting with the Tutor room key in his hand.  I was so grateful.  I even got the same room rate as I usually do.  What a great place.  I love it here and you will too.
