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,

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.
