Celebrating World Tourism Day during a Pandemic is difficult, but as borders slowly open we dream about trips and do our research so we’re ready just as soon as we can travel.

In the meantime we’ll celebrate Family Day and gather with our families, thankful that we can see them and aren’t under total lockdown.

We’ll also get out the most recent Ancestry.ca layouts and go over the stories of our roots.

Daily Quote: September 27, 2020

I’m not interested in age.
People who tell me their age are silly.
You’re as old as you feel.

Henri Frederic Amiel (Swiss – Philosopher September 27, 1821 – May 11, 1881)

Holidays and Celebrations:

World Tourism Day

Daughters Day – India

Yom Kippur-Jewish Holiday (Begins tonight)

National No Excuses Day


My Grandmother always quoted the shorter version: You’re only as old as you feel. At 90 she told me that she didn’t feel or think any differently than when she was 18. Life speeds by so quickly. Her favorite decade was when she was in her 40’s. Limitations put on her because of her age must have been very frustrating. She never lost her zeal for life or her desire to live independently.

So no Excuses. Start that project today. Go for that walk. Ride a bike. Dance. Sing. Laugh. Love. Live while you can.
