1. Starts with "M"
2. A Favorite
3.MANY chosen by Tom

Starts with "M"

MOOSOMIN MOTEL in Saskatchewan.

With the arrival of the Canadian Pacific Railway in 1882, Moosomin was established as the first Saskatchewan community on "steel". Originally known as "siding No. 4" and the "Moosomin Station", businesses began to establish and by 1884 the community had grown to include five general stores, five hotels, two livery stables, two blacksmiths, a doctor, a lawyer, butcher, and one printer, among other businesses. Moosomin was incorporated as a town in November 1887. R. D. McNaughton was the first merchant to arrive in Moosomin.

The town was named after Chief Moosomin, who became well known for leading his band into treaty status. He signed Treaty 6 at Battleford in 1880.

MADONNA Inn San Luis Obispo CA

The Madonna Inn is a motel in San Luis Obispo, California. Opened for business in 1958, it quickly became a landmark on the Central Coast of California. It was created by Alex Madonna, a successful construction magnate and entrepreneur (d. April 2004), and his wife Phyllis.

MANY places to satisfy our thirst and find a bed in Kenmare Ireland

Déjà Brew

A catchall for leftover beer, coffee, food and whatever catches my fancy!



  1. I can guess what muzak is played at Madonna Inn.

  2. Those people back then were really brave. Overwhelming signs in Ireland.
    Déjà Brew, funny, reminds me of the movie Groundhog Day. The Menu Guide is very cleverly done.

  3. ...the railroads certainly opened up the west in its day.
    ...the MADONNA Inn sign is a classic.
    ...MANY wonderful places in Kenmare Ireland. and coffee in MOAB MORMON country?
    Thanks Jackie for another wonderful Weekend Roundup!

  4. I was here earlier, Jackie but couldn't stay. I like your Ireland street picture, we loved listing to the music in the Irish pubs, seems the music and singing started at nine. We haven[t been to Kenmare that I remember, I doubt that we will be back. I do remember falling and breaking my kneecap and a finger out of joint. The ER didn't even charge me, "over age 70". Thank you too for the report on Chief Moosomin. Both Canada and the U.S. had a lot of treaties with the Indians, the only way really noble to get their lands. But we have broken every treaty, the Indians have only broken one.

  5. Wow. Look at all those advertisements for bars in Ireland.

  6. Thanks- I always enjoy your great photos and I get to learn so much about the wonderful places and ideas your share. Have a great wekk.

  7. Well that third images gave me quite a laugh Jackie. now that would be a good pub crawl! That would be the Irish!!! Have a great week ahead.
