Food for Thought Friday

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Norwegian Dance

Otter Pups Swim Lesson

Shannon Creek, Washington

For the following, I am providing the link sources beneath each photo.  You just need to click on the images to see a larger view.

Do you love cats?  Alley Cat Allies' Feral Friends Network needs more on-the-ground allies who want to protect cats.


Never condemn someone based on a little something that someone told you.  There is always a lot more to the story!


Do not seek after love, but simply remove the barriers you have built against it. - Rumi


The light which shines in the eye is really the light of the heart. - Rumi


You are not created to live a stress-out life.  Give yourself a mini-retreat whenever you need it, and embrace the love, peace and light inside and all around you.


Friends are like flowers...they brighten your day!




If you waste time today regretting what you should have done ten years ago, you'll end up ten years from now regretting the ten years you spent regretting what you should have done twenty years ago.  Start fresh today.  No more regrets from here on out.


Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always appreciate and enjoy reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share.

  3. "Do not seek after love, but simply remove the barriers you have built against it." Yes, a closed hand can't receive - so a closed mind, a closed mind can't receive love...

  8. Good morning, dear Linda! That was the best gag video yet! What a wonderful idea to have a dog operating a hot dog stand! People welcome a reason to smile and laugh and that canine concession provides it. It was interesting to learn how the mother otter teaches her pups how to swim. I had always assumed they instinctively knew. Isn't it wonderful how animals spend so much time working with their young, training and preparing them for the challenges that lie ahead? Many human mothers fail to do the same. I could listen to the relaxing, soothing white noise of those waterfalls all day long.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda, and have a safe and happy weekend!

  22. Linda, I think the otter video is simply amazing. I would have never imagined that an adult otter would teach a cub to swim like that.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love the hot dog seller video. Imagine barking to order our food. That was a smart dog! I didn't know that otter baby needs to be taught to swim. Those days when I was in school, we had folk dances as one of our lessons. It was fun!
