It was 1970 and silver screens were illuminated across the country to debut the new film The Molly Maguires, starring Sean Connery, Richard Harris and Samantha Eggar. The film is based on the story of the group of Irish Catholic miners who created the secret society to fight for the rights of the mine worker, using tactics that matched the aggressive nature of some of the mining company owners, who owned their homes and deducted from their pay to the point of a life indebted to the mining companies they worked for. Here is a link to the trailer of the film.
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
Arrival/Check-In: Director of sales Bill Lodzinski and I flew into Toronto Pearson International airport late Sunday evening and hopped in our rental car, headed to the Four Seasons Toronto. The drive takes only 30 to 40 minutes from the airport. This flagship hotel made quite the impression upon our arrival. The courteous valet quickly and efficiently took our rental car to be parked overnight as we checked in. Check-in was flawless, and the staff made sure to inform us of the amenities, schedule of services available — such as the spa and dining — and provided us with our keys. In the opulent lobby, the lovely chandeliers, high ceilings, portraits of celebrities and fashion pieces encased discretely made one feel the glamour expected while staying at a Four Seasons property.
