Monday, Monday

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

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

For those of you who have been watching the Just for Laughs Gags I post, you are aware that these are, for the most part, done right here in Montreal, Quebec, Canada!  This special video is not actually a gag, but is done by the Just for Laughs Gags Denis Levasseur!
It shows how some of our tourists here from different parts of the world recognize Denis, as the Just for Laughs Gags air in many parts of the world due to the fact that there is no talking that we can hear, so people who speak any language from anywhere can understand and enjoy them.  I hope you enjoy this video!  I really did!  :)  This video was done in our Montreal's Old Port!  

Use Yoga to Soothe Pain and Sleep Better

The Campus Squirrel Whisperer

Homeless Man Plays Piano Beautifully

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.

We find our greatest strength by lifting others.


We all leave footprints as we journey through life. Make sure yours are worth following.


We do not meditate in order to feel good. The purpose of meditation is not to feel bad either, but really to have an open compassionate attentiveness to whatever is going on.  (inside and out of ourselves)


Nothing is more honorable than a grateful heart.




Keep healthy veggies at home, so you'll snack on healthy veggies.


Don't wait for a reason to be kind, caring and compassionate to others...be the reason.


I'm still determined to be happy, regardless of what life throws at me.  I have learned through experience that my happiness will depend on my attitude and mind set, not my circumstances.  I choose to be happy!


Deep down we know we cannot make it in this world only in the company of humans.








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!

  1. Gee!!! That homeless man is super talented! Surely he can get a job in some posh hotel, playing in the lobby or piano bar?

  2. I think I saw a video update on the homeless piano player. He cleaned up and got a haircut, reconnected with his son, and entered rehab.

    Beautifully inspiring pieces!

    Is that accent typical among French-speaking Canadians?
    Interesting cos it sounds totally different to French-speaking French (what?!)! Ha.

    1. So glad you enjoyed this video, thanks for watching it! This accent is not typical among French speaking Canadians...however, it IS typical of French speaking Quebecers, and Denis Levasseur is from here, Montreal, Quebec. :)

  20. Lots of fun things on this post, Linda. It was fun to see the different reactions to the JFL guy. The homeless man playing the piano made me sad and joyful all at the same time. Interesting about the squirrel whisperer. And I love the zebra painting.

  29. Hi Linda, another lovely selection. Thank you so much for sharing them. I enjoyed seeing all the tourists with Denis, amazing how many people recognise him.

  30. I love the Laugh Gags. I watch them on Channel 9 CBC. Also like the comedians that are on TV from Montreal. The Homeless Man Plays Piano Beautifully is no longer. He was taken to a hair salon and cleaned up and a man who owned a bar had the guy play the piano in his place. What a happy ending. He's also going to meet his son who he hasn't for many years. What a beautiful ending.
    Try to have a cool day. I'm hot at the moment. have to get back into my AC. See ya Linda.

  42. Dearest Linda,
    I LOVED the sqirrels! And the homless man (!) - is it a video from Santa Barbara, USA? I'm quite excited :o)) , because we have been there in 2012, and there was the action "Pianos on State" with 10 brightly painted pianos standing along State Street. I posted the image of an old woman that played wonderful Mozart - you can see it in this post:
    http://rostrose.blogspot.co.at/2013/03/usa-16-tag-santa-barbara.html
    and I think that was the same road ... and just another piano... (?)
    Lots of hugs from Austria,
    Traude

  52. Hi, dear Linda! I didn't forget you, my cherished friend. I read the wonderful comment you left for guest host Janie on SDMM this week and thank you very much for continuing to support my blog while I took a break to entertain visiting in-laws. They extended their stay with us and just left this morning. I came over to see the special video segments you told me about. It's amazing how people from all over the globe recognize prankster Denis on the street and remind him of some of his mischievous gags.

    Thank you again, dear Linda, for your continued friendship and support!
