Saturday Sunshine

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

Royal Canadian Air Farce New Years Eve Special 2013 - Bonjour Montreal (this may not make sense to you if you are unfamilar with Canadian/Quebec politics, so I will explain in just a little detail)...the Quebec Charter of Values was something that was strongly opposed by many here in Quebec.  Here is a link about it that may help you. Quebec Charter of Values
I just love it that this show was able to find humour in what many thought was discriminatory and even ridiculous.  As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I think that humour is a good thing, it can do a lot more in bringing unity and love than anger and hatred.  Enjoy!  :)

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.

Next time you're tempted to be upset, frustrated, offended, remind yourself, it's a part of that ten percent of things in life that you can't control - but you can control how you respond. - Joel Osteen

If someone wants to be with you, it will be clear. They won't be confused, and neither will you.

Don't be afraid of change.  It's going to happen anyway.

Communication is about listening just as much as it's about talking.  You have to listen with 20/20 hearing.

Today is a great day for spreading kindness.

If you find yourself in a difficult situation try looking at it from a different angle.  Through immense challenges, ordinary people have extraordinary ideas!

Two American tourists were driving through Nova Scotia, Canada.  As they were approaching Shubenacadie, they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town's name.  They argued back and forth until they stopped for lunch.  As they stood at the counter, one tourist asked the employee, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us?  Would you please pronounce where we are...ver-r-y slo-w-wly?"  The waitress leaned over the counter and said: "Timmmmm Hooorrrtons..."  (Tim Horton's)  :)

I need for forget what's gone, appreciate what still remains and look forward to what's coming next.

Stop waiting for things to happen.  Go out and make them happen.

We all smile in the same language. :)

If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things. - Albert Einstein

Sometimes we need to disconnect from the chaos outside of us, in order to reconnect within and find peace with ourselves.

If you're going through hell, keep going. - Winston Churchill

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. Hahaha, I've heard variations of the "can you tell us where we are very slowly?" joke but the Tim Horton's twist was very good!

  2. Wonderful post as always, thanks for making us smile!

  3. Yes, change is inevitable even in ourselves - our hair grows longer, our nails too...and we grow older.
