Friday's Food for Thought ~ 5.29.15

Friday's Food for Thought ~ 5.29.15 "Traveling is the ruin of all happiness! There’s no looking at a building after seeing Italy." ~ Fanny Burney

Friday's Food for Thought “Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends.”  – Maya Angelo

Posted by sunluva7 , Oct 15 2013 - - - - - - · 1,082 views

"Mom Moments" from a Mother & Daughter Cruise My daughter and I just returned from a cruise from New England and Canada aboard the Brilliance of the Seas - or should I say from just Canada, since I already live in New England, and it seems strange to say I returned from a place in which I already live.  I thought I would share a few amusing personal cruise episodes, things that my kids fondly re...
