About Me

I am a mother, a good friend and a giving person. I love to travel to warm sunny places and meet new people and make new friends. Two of my favorite travel spots are Isla Mujeres, MX and Kauai, HI. I have lived in Oregon all of my life and recently retired from Qwest Communications after 33 years.

My favorite beach – Sergio’s Playa Sol on Isla Mujeres.

    • If you do a Google search you will find all kinds of good information.

      Here’s just a little of what I found.


      Oregon Trail – The first emigrants to make the trip were Marcus and Narcissa Whitman who made the trip in 1836. However, the first mass migration did not occur until 1843 when approximately 1000 pioneers made the journey at one time.

      Dr. John McLoughlin, baptized Jean-Baptiste McLoughlin, (October 19, 1784 – September 3, 1857) was the Chief Factor of the Columbia Fur District of the Hudson’s Bay Company at Fort Vancouver. He was later known as the “Father of Oregon”.”

  2. Hi Jackie … Are you in Portland now? I am. Maybe we can hook up & find ourselves some shrimp this next week! Lots to talk about re: sunnier climates! (but, it at least is finally sunny here in the Pacific NW! yay!)
