Monday's Picks

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

Merry Horses at Hillside Animal Sanctuary in Norfolk

The Mulberry Retirement Residence

Atomic Bakery Mid-Century Treats!

Animal Sanctuary Owner Believes Sheep Dolly is World's Oldest at 23

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.

Even the tiniest ray of hope is a very powerful thing.


Your mood should not dictate your manners.


Sorrying is blurrying.  It stops you from seeing clearly.


You will not create change in your life until you feel it in your core that your life must change.  This either happens through crisis pain...or by getting wildly excited about creating a life you love.  Don't wait for crisis pain.  Start now to get passionate about living an awesome life, as a strong, growth-directed person, and feel this desire as a "must" in your core.




There is always a message in the mess.


Struggles are required in order to survive in life, because in order to stand up, you gotta know what falling down is like.  Stay positive!


Gossip ends at the wise person's ears.


Do you consider yourself a problem to be fixed...or can you allow yourself to be exactly as you are right now, in peace, without believing in your abusive thoughts.


Even the tiniest steps will add up to a whole journey.


Adventure isn't about where you go - it's about perspective.


Snow peas






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.

  13. Good morning, dear Linda! Another pee prank from those gag video meisters? The looks on the faces are priceless. I loved watching those majestic horses running free and happy, the way animals were meant to live their lives. Dolly the ancient sheep is an inspiration to us all. If we keep up the spirit and the will to live, we too can enjoy a long life.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  16. A wonderful collection. Years ago I bought my fleece from a woman who kept her herd until each passed away naturally. They "retired" together, so to speak. I have no idea how old some of those old girls lived to be.
