Friday Fulfillment and the New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I posted a new poll a few days ago, which you will find at the top right hand column of my blog.  It is asking you all what your favourite animal(s) is/are. You can vote for more than one animal, if you wish, as many as you like.  Thank you all so much for voting in my polls, I really appreciate it.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

Be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people.

Forget about lowering a number on a scale.  Focus on increasing good health, vibrant energy and self love.

I really regret eating health today...said nobody ever!

Life didn't come with a fool-proof manual. - Richard Carlson

We are all in this together.

When we demand something from someone, but give nothing in return, it's called selfishness.  When we give but expect something in return, it's called networking.  When we freely give and demand nothing in return, it's called love.

Life is like a camera...focus on what's important, capture the good times, develop from the negatives, and if things don't work out, take another shot.

Pets are present in our lives to awaken the unconditional love in our hearts.

A man can only rise, conquer, and achieve by lifting up his thoughts. - James Allen

"Once upon a time, in an ocean far, far away..."
Lobster tales  :)

This is your own precious life...give it all (owl) you got!  :)

Kind people are my kind of people.

The essence of life is not in the great victories and grand failures, but in the simple joys.

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!

    Paul VERLAINE (1844-1896)

    En septembre

    Parmi la chaleur accablante
    Dont nous torréfia l'été,
    Voici se glisser, encor lente
    Et timide, à la vérité,

    Sur les eaux et parmi les feuilles,
    Jusque dans ta rue, ô Paris,
    La rue aride où tu t'endeuilles
    De tels parfums jamais taris,

    Pantin, Aubervilliers, prodige
    De la Chimie et de ses jeux,
    Voici venir la brise, dis-je,
    La brise aux sursauts courageux...

    La brise purificatrice
    Des langueurs morbides d'antan,
    La brise revendicatrice
    Qui dit à la peste : va-t'en !

    Et qui gourmande la paresse
    Du poëte et de l'ouvrier,
    Qui les encourage et les presse...
    " Vive la brise ! " il faut crier :

    " Vive la brise, enfin, d'automne
    Après tous ces simouns d'enfer,
    La bonne brise qui nous donne
    Ce sain premier frisson d'hiver ! "

    Fortunately it ended well with the toddler.

  8. That Malaysian girl is playing a Chinese New Year song using glasses filled to certain levels with water. Nice!

    The magic potion is too powerful!

  10. I voted horses, even though I have been afraid to ride them since childhood --and we owned horses back then-- I have always thought them beautiful. Also voted elephant, partly because my daughter has always loved them and, when she was only 5, persuaded me to ride one with her when a traveling circus set up tents near our property. I am 65 now and have not yet ridden a horse. Perhaps it's time I tried.

  11. Great post and I really liked the art piece at the end!

  12. Very funny gag, Linda !

  13. I voted! I love the quote from Karen Salmansohn, very good point. Losing weight can't be good if you lose health! Lobster tales image is so cute :-)
    Have a wonderful weekend xoxo

  14. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I voted in your new animal poll. (May I include a write-in vote for Eric Burdon and the Animals? :) I wish I could pour that super strength potion into my morning coffee very day. :) Dogs and cats have been known to protect their owners by driving away much larger wild animals. This video proves it. You must have been a fan of those three related TV shows of the early 60s, The Beverly Hillbillies, Green Acres and Petticoat Junction. I watched all three, too. I just read more about Petticoat Junction. There were numerous cast changes during its run. The first two black & white seasons, starring Pat Woodell as Bobbie Jo and Jeannine Riley as Billie Jo, are most coveted by fans because they have never been in syndication.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda, and have a wonderful weekend!

  15. I'm glad I showed up this morning! Thank you, Linda!!

  16. I really liked that "life is like a camera" quote!

  17. Love the "lobster tales" and the "Life is like a camera" quote. :)

  18. The pet saying is good...but they all are.

  19. Another great post. Enjoyed all the videos and the quotes. Have a blessed day and wonderful Labor Day weekend. Madeline

  20. I voted in your new poll.
