Cheerful Tuesday and a New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have added a new poll, which you will find on the top right hand column of my blog.  I am asking you all what your favourite meat is.  You can choose more than one, if you have a few favourites!  I also gave the option to choose that you do not eat meat for those of you who are vegetarian.  :)  Thank you so much for taking the time to vote in my polls!


The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Punky Punkin - Fran Allison - 1952 Vintage Halloween Song

Migratory Birds

Emotional Baggage - Loretta Laroche

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 could all take a lesson from the weather.  It pays no attention to criticism.




To transform your life:  1. Pay attention to your sensations.  2.  Be grateful.  3. Breathe consciously. 4.  Open your heart to someone.  5.  Expect abundance.


Play is the highest form of research.


Don't lose hope, you never know what tomorrow will bring.


You may be up against a giant today, but don't focus on how big your giant is.  Focus on how big your inner power is.


Life is not about how fast you run or how high you climb but how well you bounce.


Do everything quietly and in a calm spirit.  Do not lose your inner peace for anything whatsoever, even if your whole world seems upset.


I'm more direct than I used to be.  Life's too short to suffer half-truths and inefficiencies.  Be honest.  Be open.  It's magic.


Quit worrying about how everything is going to turn out.  Live one day at a time;  better yet, make the most of this moment.


Put it all in perspective.


You are not too old and it is not too late to dive into your increasing depths where life calmly gives out its own secret.


Non-stick fry pan...lies  :)




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!

  2. We do need to listen to criticism though - they may have a point and we need to evaluate it all objectively...and change for the better if we need to do so.

  17. I like "Love is where the heart is " the best.As a Japanese, I hope it would inspire people who have given up living in their home town due to radioactive contamination since the collapse of power plants in Fukushima.

  18. No straight up bacon, on the list? I know it falks under pig (sometimes turkey), but it is nothing like a chop or pork rib.

  19. Ha--loved the "non-stick" frypan one--isn't that the truth!

  20. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I voted in your latest poll. If it was up to me I wouldn't eat any meat at all, but my doctor suggests that I do. That dumpster prank was nicely executed and really fooled people. I was only two years old when that children's Halloween record "Punky Punkin" was released and I don't remember it. I loved watching the migratory birds. Isn't it amazing how the word spread about that inviting location and the number of visiting birds swelled from only a few to many thousands? The piece about carrying emotional baggage around for years was a great one. We must all learn to forgive and let go.

    Happy Tuesday, dear friend Linda!

  21. Bonjour Linda,
    C'est vraiment d'une grande beauté de voir les oiseaux migrateurs

    Bisous

  22. thanks for visiting my blog! so glad you liked it. Love all your quotes...wow!! voted on your poll but didn't see bison on there...I no longer eat beef (am trying to give up meat and just eat chicken, salmon and tilapia or bison 2x a week). We have local bison which is so much better for you than beef....much less fat and they are only grass fed so no antibiotics or hormones go into them!! Have a great day!!

  23. Greetings from a very rainy Toronto!

    Linda, love all your meaningful quotes of guidance, inspiration, and truth. I especially like the one about how life is more about bouncing back from troubles! Thanks for sharing and hope it is sunny and bright in your beautiful Montreal!

  37. Industrialised farming farming has done horrific things to our natural cycles. Hopefully people will start to see the wisdom of diversity in planting sooner rather than later.

    Desculpe, mas gostei demais do seu blog hoje para tentar dizer o que sinto em inglês. Na verdade sou muito melhor em lingua francesa.
    Os vídeos maravilhosos, as reflexões fantásticas e a paz, fizeram com que me sentisse realmente em casa porque sou pacifica também!
    Muito obrigada pela paz que transmite e a beleza das palavras
    Big hug!

  48. That weather quote is brilliant, Linda...yes, a powerful lesson for us all!

    I voted for my favourite meats. I have to admit, I am a guilty meat eater though. I keep trying to go vegetarian, but then the cravings get me.:/

    Thank you for another truly amazing post.

    Oh how I love being here! xoxoxo

  49. How could you not laugh at that homeless girl gag? The Native Americans called corn, beans, and squash "the three sisters." There is a lot we could learn from them, dear Linda! Have a good one!
