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,

TBEX Blogger Conference - Toronto, June 1 & 2nd

Join me at TBEX

Before I start, I want to say a BIG THANK YOU to SMK Insurance - Black Belt Protection for Atlantic Canadians for all your insurance needs.  They have sponsored me to go to this incredible conference.
I just can't wait to go to my very first Blogger Conference.  The TBEX is the conference of conferences! It is being held in Toronto on June 1 & 2nd, 2013.  I'm staying at a hostel, which I have done since I was only 17 years old.  It should be a interesting time since I'm use to sleeping in nice hotel rooms by myself.  I will blog and post pictures on this when I return.

The TBEX conference agenda is packed with lots of great speakers and tours.  I personally am so excited to meet some of the many people I tweet about and follow.  Making connections with other bloggers will be advantages to keep abreast of current blogger issues and how to make better connections for my followers and readers.

Can I really believe this is happening to me?  No I can't!  I have secured a wonderful sponsor, SMK Insurance - Black Belt Protection.  They provide all needed insurance for home, auto and travel.  I am personally excited about their new adventure into Travel Insurance.  They presently provide the best home and car insurance rates for Atlantic Canada and I've no doubt they will provide excellent travel insurance rates for people like me who travel quite a bit or for anyone who travels even occasionally.   You'll have to stay tuned for updates on this great company when I post their new information on Travel Insurance.

In the meantime, TBEX Conference is just around the corner and I am excited.  I have lots of travel before this conference and of course, afterwards, but for now, Bring It On TBEX, I can't wait!.

Steve Kimball, President of SMK Insurance - Black Belt Protection is one of the most incredible people you could ever meet.  His commitment to his clients is beyond anything you could imagine and his prices are more than comparable with any other insurance company anywhere!  He will even match a quote by another company.  SMK Insurance was mostly for home and auto insurance, but now they are venturing into life and Travel insurance.  That is where I come in. Since I travel so much, travel insurance is a very important part of planning my travel.  Steve makes sure all my needs are met.  He cares about his clients and it truly shows!  Thanks Steve for sponsoring my travel to Toronto to the TBEX Conference June 1st & 2nd.  Atlantic Canadians can contact SMK Insurance at 902-429-7722 for the best insurance quotes.
