Thursday Things

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

Enchanted World - Edward Simoni (soothing pan flute)

Arnold Ziffel Saves Horse's Bacon from Vietnam Draft - Green Acres - 1968

Sea of Tranquility - Paul Mottram

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.

There is a place in you that never stops shining!

Failure is only the opportunity to begin again, only this time more wisely. - Henry Ford

Canadian passive aggressive.  "A spot just for you!"

Forgiveness is your release from a prison of pain. It's letting go of your need to know what can often never be known.  It's refusing to cruelly crave the suffering of others.  It's refocusing energy spent on bitterness into betterment.

Labels are for jars, NOT people.  Fight mental illness stigma.

Sensitive people should be treasured.  They love deeply and think deeply about life.  They are loyal, honest and true.  The simple things sometimes mean the most to them.  They don't need to change or harden.  Their purity makes them who they are.

When you mind is clouded by despair...go out in nature, breathe in the fresh air!  Nature reflects back to you the infinite goodness that is already present in yourself.

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. Awesome post again, L ... so love coming here and spend a few minutes just before i'm off to work ... thank you ... Always, cat.

  2. Don't you love someone who cant' park in the lines right?

  3. Not just in Canada, lots of them here!!! Errant drivers who just would not bother to park their cars properly. So selfish!

  4. Love the bird art. Birds always make me smile. :)
    Today is my 8th wedding anniversary. I'm making a special dinner tonight and we are going to Hamburg on the weekend. Hope you have something nice planned as well.

  5. Wonderful - I like Simoni!
    Have a nice day

  7. bonjour , juillet ce fini deja , le temps passe vite ...

    et les jours sont plus courts aussi , avec ce ciel gris ça donne un air d'automne

    bisous et a demain

    Juillet (La ronde des mois)

    Il vient d'arriver, ce fichu mois de Juillet
    Avec son cortège de journées ensoleillées
    Et, de longues soirées, où la chaleur
    Omniprésente, nous donne des envies d'ailleurs.
    Le moindre souffle d'air, amène le bien être,
    Et, pour l'emprisonner, on croise fenêtres
    Et volets, vivant dans la douce pénombre
    Juste, égayée des rais de lumière et d'ombres
    Que créent les persiennes ajourées.
    Et si certains, arrivent à aimer et savourer
    Ces longues heures qui s'étirent, surchauffées
    Je préfère de loin l'automne ébouriffé
    Avec ses nuits fraîches et ses coups de vents
    Laissant la plage et la chaleur aux estivants.

  8. Good morning dear Linda,

    Thank you for another portion of laugh :) I love the pan flute, too. Amazing post! Love and care, Liuba x

  9. Ha--I laughed when I saw the passive aggressive one. I must remember that the next time we travel and the jerk at the hotel takes up 2 very needed spots with his bad parking. I shall pack my sidewalk chalk-LOL!

  14. Hola Linda, me encanta todo, pero con el de los patines me a dado un ataque de risa. Es muy muy divertido.Un abrazo y se muy feliz.
