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,

Guest Blogger - Breaking Down the Endless Benefits of Car Rental

Breaking Down The Endless Benefits Of Car Rental

Longing for a relaxing vacation after so many weeks and months of hard work? Then you should include Perth, Australia in your travel plans. Its tranquil rivers and spacious beaches are perfect if you want to unwind and forget about work responsibilities.'

Also, if you get bored you can visit the top-notch shopping places and nightlife attractions that it boasts of. As you can see, Perth’s perfect blend of nature and sophistication can blow your stress away.

Bear in mind, however, that there are certain things that you need to consider if you want to have a blast on your vacation. One of the most important yet most neglected aspects of this matter is booking a car rental vehicle. Take note, that it is essential if you want to achieve a hassle-free and convenient getaway break. Below are some of the reasons why. 

Drive long distance without breaking the bank 

Driving long distance may mean extra expenses. This is not the case with car rental because they have several fuel-economic vehicles in their arsenal.

In fact, many of them offer cars that meet the 28 and 32 highway miles per gallon (mpg) standard. In addition to this, they also offer hybrid vehicles that are more fuel economic. With this, you’ll save money on rental and petrol expenses.

Ideal for small children.

If you’re travelling with children, you don’t have to worry about temper tantrums and meltdowns because you can opt for a minivan or SUV that has ample space for utmost convenience. 

Also, kids can easily get irritable on public transport because of the hustle and bustle of the crowd; as such, it would be best to go for a rental vehicle where they can play with their toys or have their snacks in a convenient manner. 

Avoid shabby cab taxi drivers that extortionate fares

Whether we like it or not, there are shabby cab drivers out there who are looking to rip off travellers like you. The good news is you don’t have to worry about them if you have access to a rental car. 

If you feel that you’ll have a hard time driving in Perth and you need someone to do it for you, you can always opt for the chauffeured service. Many car rental companies offer this at minimal charge.


With a Perth car rental vehicle, you don’t have to worry about the inconveniences of travelling in a foreign country because you don’t have to rely on public transport when sightseeing.

Therefore, you need to invest in this service if you want to achieve a vacation that you’ll cherish and talk about for a very long time.
