Monday Melody and a New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have added a new poll.  I just would like to know which you prefer...tea or coffee?  You will always find my polls on the upper right hand column of my blog! When you vote in the poll it will seem like it does not register your vote because it will not show up right away, but it does register the votes.  :) Thank you all so much for taking the time to vote in my polls.  I really appreciate it.  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Sony 4K Demo (Camcorder FDR-AX100)

Ultimate Cat Video in 4K with the Panasonic GH4

The Curvature of Earth 4K 60FPS

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.

It is what it is but you have the power to turn it into an isn't so bad.


Don't start a diet that has an expiration date. Develop a healthy lifestyle that will last forever.


There are always secret opportunities hidden within every challenging event.  You just have to get curious (not furious) and look for them.


It's time to stop beating yourself up about the mistakes you've made.


People get so caught up in that one thing they don't like about themselves - their thighs, nose, tummy, something!  But things like flour and baking soda go into a cake and those things are gross alone.  But put together, the cake is pretty darn delicious!


Don't let a hard lesson harden your heart.


Hang on...sometimes it takes falling apart for things to come together.


No matter how dark it may sometimes seem...always remember that even the tiniest light dispels darkness.  So shine your little light!


When you complain you make yourself into a victim. Leave the situation, change the situation or accept it. All else is madness. - Eckhart Tolle


When we know ourselves to be connected to all others, acting compassionately is simply the natural thing to do. - R.N. Remen


Embrace the glorious mess that you are. - Elizabeth Gilbert








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!

  16. Good morning, dear Linda! I drink a gallon of coffee a day and I voted in your latest poll. It was a hoot to watch that fake blind man whacking pedestrians with his cane. Ultra high definition 4K is another technological revolution bringing us breathtaking images of everything from landscapes to city skylines to kitty cats to views of the earth. Ironically, many people are also discovering the joy of imperfection, deliberately using vintage cameras and shooting rolls of film in order to capture images of the world as it appeared to us in the mid 20th century. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  17. that's the best thing about being male. You can wake up and be somewhere in record time. One time I got to work and 15 mins before I was asleep

  21. Hi Linda, I voted in both polls. I must admit I hadn't noticed them before.
    Another brilliant just for laughs gag – I liked the bit at the end where the lady has the stick- that is just the kind of thing I would do! I also loved the cat video. Thanks for sharing them, Barbara

  22. it's coffee for me, though tea comes a close second, especially on days when i want something light but refreshing :) the video of the man with the cane was very amusing :)

  23. Hi Linda!
    The two cats in the video are sooo cute! I wish my cats would also love each other that way.
    Lots of hugs from sunny autumn-Austria! (I love autumn - and spring and coffee - I've voted, too ;o))

  29. Hi Linda,
    the video with the cats is very beautiful. I have also a red one, her name is Mia. But she doesn’t cuddle so lovely with her sister. What a pity.
    Sorry, my English is not so perfect.

  34. Happy Monday morning, Linda! Your post was wonderful; recently it seems like almost every quote is speaking directly to me! Hilarious gag! The curvature of the Earth video was stunning and profound. I would have started one of my teaching days with my third graders with that thought provoking video. Have a n awesome week! btw, the diet advice is the only thing that works long term!

  49. Oh, Linda. Coffee. Always coffee!

    I fit closer to the male profile when I am getting up and ready for work. Actually, I take about 15 minutes to get out of the house in the morning.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So many wonderfully thoughtful quotes! I voted Coffee! I love tea, too...but coffee is my drink! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today, Linda!

  51. I've never learned to like coffee. I usually tell people I'm not old enough to drink it, but my white hair says otherwise. Loved the gag. And it's so true about diets with expiration dates.
