  3. The Swedish National Anthem is beautiful and haunting. And the pictures of Sweden are gorgeous! I LOVE all the cat paintings!! The tea recipe is very unusual.

  4. I have tasted Pu Erh tea before, but prepared just with hot water only. The Manatees are so big but look so gentle.

  10. Good morning, dear Linda! I dare say that many of the pranks presented in your gag video series, including the one posted today, wouldn't go over very well with most American citizens. Swimming with gentle manatees is on my bucket list. Ever since childhood I have been fascinated with the sea cow and remember doing an oral report about them in elementary school. I live in Florida and, sadly, see news reports all too often about manatees being injured or killed by the propellers of speeding boats. Those elephants really seem to appreciate that large choir singing to them. I believe most animals can tell if you are a friend or a foe.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  11. I like the planet b one. The nearest earth like planet (if conditions are right) is 10 light years away. Which is nearly impossible to travel to.

    Manatees are such graceful animals. So gentle.

  27. Swimming with manatees would be a dream come true Linda. How appropriate that a child should be holding up that placard - we need to ensure we leave her a Planet A fit to live on.

  28. Hahaha Hahaha .... I really enjoyed and laughed at your movies,. The aheent which reverses the sign for the one-way traffic, or iron the shirts which allows burn hahahaha ... Singing for the elephants I found very special to see.

  34. There is no Planet B - we all need a good daily reminder of that.
