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...

BLOG POST OF THE MONTH: APRIL 29, 2017

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 SiteHoundSniffs.com which looks to be a great animal site. Hope you enjoy it.

Thanks friends,

Debbie

Titanic 100 years - gravesite

It has been 100 years ago that the great White Star ship the Titanic went down with a loss of 1500 souls.  The news that the forth person brought out of the water was a little child but his name was never known.  Now we know that name.  He is Sidney Leslie Goodwin.  His grave marker shows him as unknown, but a new marker has been placed at the bottom of the gravestone with his name and year of birth and death.  DNA is a miracle and we finally know this sweet angel's name.





It was a sad day when I took these new pictures on April 12, 2012.  There were many celebrations in Halifax and many nights of movies.  Even though it has been 100 years, the memory is still vivid to the people in Halifax.  St. Paul's church assisted with housing the dead until they could be identified and buried. 

I still cringe when I think of the 3rd class passengers being treated horribly and locked down so they couldn't get out.  There are still parts in the movie that I can't bear to watch with mothers & their little children. 

I hope my pictures can bring the victims of the Titanic a little closer to you.  Thank you
