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! I have been away from posting because my 40 year old daughter finally got married Aug 27th 2016. It was tiring but the wedding was wonderful and very happy in the end. I sent them on a 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. Apparently when the drove back home to Halifax, they started arguing and it lasted all the way over four provinces. Now she feels the argument wasn't so bad. 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.

We had a fabulous summer with little rain, although the farmers and rural residents were not too happy. Some people had to pay for water since their wells went dry. This rainless weather is not something we experience so it was a little frightening.

I've been busy 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.

Well, be on the look out for my various posts. I also have a few products I want to write about as well.
Thanks friends,

Stars & streets of Hollywood

Well, I just couldn't wait to give you more pictures so you can enjoy the LA / Hollywood we enjoyed while visiting my nephew in Vegas.  His wife Jackie, drove us out to LA.  We drove the famous Route 66.  I saw country while they filmed lots of western movies.  I saw the extreme "trees" which I had to take pics of.

Jackie drove us over the infamous overpass that crashed and killed and hurt lots of people going and come to LA.  It was horrible! I remember watching it on TV.  Our hotel overlooked the Hollywood hills and the famous sign.  The Renaissance Hotel is almost right next to the Kodak Theatre.  We took pictures of lots of "stars" stars.  Hollywood Blvd was nothing much to see. l I was somewhat disappointed.  I expected to see more plush surroundings.  We stopped in the Chinese Theatre to get gifts and walked along the strip and took pictures of costumed people.  I didn't know we were supposed to pay for them to act out for us.  I think Jackie gave them a tip.

I bought my first pair of Sketchers shoes and to this day, I still have them and they are in great shape!  What a great shoe.  Since then, I bought my Sketchers sneakers for our Med cruise last year.  Well worth it.

 Jackie drove us all around the Hollywood hills to see some homes of famous people.  One of my favourite is Jennifer Aniston but we couldn't see her house very well because of the high fence and trees.  We drove up Mulholland Drive. It was a great place to visit.  I wish we had more time here but we only had the one night.  Jackie even drove up to the area that she was brought up in.

I'll post my pictures in segments because there are so many.  I hope you enjoy them.  I know I did.

Thank you and take care all.  I appreciate you following and reading my blogs.
