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,

Services of Air Canada and Flight Central

Hey folks.

I recently flew to Montreal and just this week, to Deer Lake.  Today I had to call Flight Central and Air Canada.  I feel I must write about my experiences.  There are no pictures, but the services I received must be told.

After my conference ended in Montreal, I went to the airport to return home.  I am normally an Aeroplan Prestige member.  I believe I didn't make it last year by 2 points.  However, I have never been refused service while at the Priority line when I book in for my flight.  In Montreal, they refused to allow me to check in because the woman said I was just a regular member.  Hey wait a minute, isn't it the many "regular" members who buy their airfare tickets which in turn provides the airline with nice profits?  I know the elite status pay more but the airline couldn't survive without the "rest" of us.  She was so ignorant and rude.  What a disappointment she was and she made Air Canada look so bad.  If this is the best service, then WestJet and Porter look even better than before.

When I left Deer Lake this week, I had the warmest service by the airline workers.  Their warmth and politeness was a God send.  I know Air Canada has some difficult people, but most of them are fabulous and Deer Lake have them.  Funny, I just learned that there are no deer in NL/Lab because they can't survive the weather, yet the very large lake is called Deer Lake.  They do have lots of Moose!

I had to call Flight Central today to inquire about flights to Toronto for the TBEX conference.  The helpfulness of Meagan Abriel from Bedford, Nova Scotia was so awesome!  I felt like I was talking to a long time friend.  She was so helpful, I couldn't believe it.  Thank you Meagan, you are a true asset to Flight Central.

After my call with Meagan, I then called Air Canada to inquire if my Aeroplan points were assigned to my flights to Toronto for the TBEX conference and if they put in my request for a wheelchair.  Since my cancer travel days, my knees have little or no cartilage which makes walking long distances very difficult.  I couldn't believe how warm and wonderful she was!  Her name is Michelle Kaine and she works out of Saint John, New Brunswick.  WOW, I've had some great service and some bad but at least the great service helps me to overcome the others' attitudes.

Thank you so much Air Canada and Flight Central for having some really wonderful employees who do put the passenger first.
