  6. Good morning Marjorie. It's supposed to be 28C here in TO today so I think I will hibernate with the air conditioning turned up. I do follow you and as for my favourite vacation spot? Anywhere in Canada. The only province I haven't been to is Newfoundland and Labrador. That would be a great vacation but then again, I wouldn't mind going up to see the territories - in the summer though.

  19. I went to Queensland, Australia once a long time ago and it was the most fun vacation ever. I went when I was still single and my whole extended family went along. Not sure if I'll enjoy it now that I have kids who are teens.

    Phuket, Thailand is a very easy slow paced vacation. Nice weather and the people are always smiling.

    At this point in my life, I just want a few hours alone in my home with no one I have to feel responsible for. Just me and my computer!

  66. While I do love Las Vegas, my favorite vacation was to Best Friends Animal Shelter in Utah. We stayed in a cabin there right near the horses and we even got to keep one of the dogs overnight in our cabin. We had such fun walking the dogs and the people who work there are special, dedicated and caring people. I'd love to go back one day and take my daughter.

I actually prefer fresh water, so I am not tied to beach vacations! Thanks for the chance to win!

That area has the best 'country' style restaurants with amazing food just like Grandma used to make.
