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: Sept 20, 2016

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,

Debbie

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.
