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,

Updated Travelling with Dove Soap

As I use Dove shampoo and conditioner more and more, I realize that I don't have to use very much to get lots of lather!  I had to keep using less and less.  I couldn't believe how little I had to use.  The softness of my hair on the first shampoo is amazing (for my hair).  I really believe this is a wonderful product and I am so happy I discovered it.  I have scent sensitivities and I am not bothered by the smell of the Dove products, which is good for me.

Hi folks, sorry for the long delay in writing more posts.  I have been busy and to be really honest, I have so many pictures and stories to tell, I don't know which one to do first.

I wanted to tell you of my experience with Dove soap while I travelled this year.  Ever since my breast cancer journey now 10 years ago, I have used Dove soap only.  Because of the moisture quality of Dove, I was informed by my cancer team to use only Dove body soap.  To this day, I still only use Dove and my skin is awesome.  People can't believe the youth of my skin and the softness.

Recently, I finally purchased Dove Shampoo and Conditioner.  I was shocked and very pleasantly surprised (although I shouldn't have been) that the Dove Shampoo was absolutely wonderful in my hair even without conditioner, but when I added the Dove Conditioner, it was the smoothest it has ever been!  Truly, I couldn't believe how soft my hair was.  I wondered if I needed to put conditioner in at all.  I did just to be on the safe side.  I can tell you that my hair has rarely ever been soft with just shampoo.  When my hair grew back after I lost it due to chemo, it was very harsh yet thin.  Since 10 years has almost passed since my first chemo on Feb 27th, 2003, and this is the first time I felt it soft by just using shampoo, Dove shampoo that is.  I also use Dove underarm to keep me fresh and clean.  It works wonders. 

I am not paid for my statements, I just like to share good things and Dove soap and Dove Shampoo and Conditioner is one of my now "forever" goods.  As a person with a scent issue, the Dove products did not injure or bother my senses which was excellent for me!

Thanks for taking the time to drop by an have a read.  I'll be posting more later.  I have some fabulous pictures of Vancouver and the city from a harbour cruise.

Bye for now
