Thursday Thoughts

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 

Yesterday on my blog I shared about Nicholas Winton saving many hundreds of Jewish children from the Nazis in WWII.  If this is accurate, he is 106 and still alive.  What a remarkable man!  :)  Nicholas Winton
And here is a video with Nicholas Winton and some of the children he rescued!  You may wish to have a Kleenex or two handy when you see this short video, it is very powerful and touching.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Relaxation Music and Water Session (Buddha Bar)

Wildlife in 4K (Ultra HD)

Garden Frogs Eating Aphids with Slow Motion Scenes

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.

Running away from any problem only increases the distance from the solution.


Depression is feeling like you've lost something but having no clud when or where you last had it.  Then one day you realize what you lost is yourself.


Respect is earned.  Honesty is appreciated.  Trust is gained.  Loyalty is returned.


Life isn't happening to you.  Life is responding to you. You're in control of your life, by controlling your thoughts and actions.  What you think about you bring about!  Negative actions bring on negative reactions.  Positive actions bring on positive reactions.




Teach by example.










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

  5. I enjoyed all the animal videos today. Just spectacular. I also had never heard of Mr.Winton before. I can't understand why. He is certainly or was a most remarkable man.

  15. Good morning, dear Linda!

    Thank you for saluting that remarkable man, Nicholas Winton. If he is indeed still alive then it is quite fitting because he saved the lives of so many children all those years ago. It was fun watching those golfers dodging a rainstorm of rubber balls and the frog eating aphids in the garden. It is wonderful to see wildlife in 4K Ultra HD resolution. It's a shame so many species are becoming extinct at the same time we have the technology to fully appreciate their beauty.

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

    Have a great Thursday!

  20. What a remarkable man for doing what he did. God Bless him. Enjoyed all the videos and quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  21. Nicholas Winton. What a great man indeed and what a tribute they did to thank him. Awesome.

    Loved the prank. That would have scared me something awful.

    Oh the pond and that yard. That's most beautiful. Okay I loved the frog too.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  22. Wow, Linda! You hit the jackpot today! That Winton video was indeed very touching. I knew there were many people who helped children escape the clutches of the Nazis but it was nice to meet him and share in the tribute to his good work.

    And the golf ball thing was just too funny. I've often heard "Fore!" and covered my head but to have all those balls rain down would be unnerving. I laughed out loud!

    Thank you for your kind comment about my new book!

  23. Isn't amazing to see that one man can create love & life for so many people. Tremendous. I loved today's laugh because I'm a golfer and I've been on the course when someone yells FORE and see how they react. It's so funny.
    " Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Trust is gained. Loyalty is returned. " totally correct. The " Meanwhile in Canada picture is funny but i've never tried it. ( yet )
    Have a wonderful Thursday Linda. See ya.

  36. Nice gag, Linda !
    Beautiful quotes !

  37. Fantastic post, dear Linda. I often feel that many of the quotes/words of wisdom you share with us here would be ideal as prints on a children's bedroom wall or in a classroom and that one above regarding respect, honesty, trust and loyalty really stands out for me that regards. What a better and more peaceful place the world would be if could instill that in all kids at an early age.

    Big hugs & happy Thursday wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  41. Hope you're having a good weekend. Although, first I wrote goo weekend and had to fix it. I don't know what a goo weekend would be like. Unless it was melted chocolate goo, that might work.
