Monday Melody and a New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have added a new poll, which you will find at the upper right hand column of my blog.  Just asking if you prefer to take a shower or a bath.  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

Easy Nail Art for Beginners!

How to Make a Cat House from Recycled Egg Trays

Victor Borge's Piano Jokes

21 Cute Bird Houses Handmade from Wood

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.

Do not educate your children to be rich.  Educate them to be happy.  So when they grow up they will know the value of things, not the price.


If you're suffering from a bad case of grumpiness, the best cure is love.  Make a call, exchange a text, snag a hug.  If it doesn't work, increase the dosage.


Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction.


Age doesn't define your maturity.  Grades don't define your intelligence.  Rumors don't define who you are.


It's beautiful to be alone.  To be alone does not mean to be lonely.  It means the mind is not influenced and contaminated by society.


That's right...it was me.


Kindness...changing the world one life at a time.


You are not your illness.  You have a name, a history, a personality.  Staying yourself is the battle.


In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit. - Anne Frank


The fact that millions of school children require medication on a daily basis so they can more easily assimilate into the culture of public schooling does not mean these children are damaged.  It means something is very wrong with the whole idea of schooling.


A truly rich man is one whose children run into his arms even when his hands are empty.




You just have to create your own sunshine sometimes.




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!

  5. Victor Borgia took me back some :-) he was so funny. That was a cool cat house, I might try this, would need waterproofing though for our outdoor cat. We failed in trying to make a fancy and cute bird house, these are neat. And last but not least love the quotes but 'the it was me' rates number one today :-)

  11. Wonderful thoughts and quotations, Linda, as always!
    This time I liked especially the ones that point out the difference between the value and the price and the difference between being alone and being lonely, both my favourite topics.
    Have a lovely week!

  12. Good morning, dear Linda! I'm surprised there's anyone left on earth who doesn't recognize that wacky prankster cop. I was amazed to watch that cat house come together made with egg cartons. The kitty looks very comfortable inside it. Victor Borge was one of the familiar faces of my childhood years. "The Clown Prince of Denmark" appeared on Ed Sullivan, Kraft Music Hall, What's My Line and other programs that I watched. My father and I once constructed a deluxe bird house and erected it atop a pole in the back yard. It was designed to attract purple martins but the only residents were common sparrows.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  30. Linda, that squirrel with the pumpkin made me chuckle. Lately, I've been hearing about squirrels making a mess with the pumpkins. I guess they like to eat them! I loved the BEAUTIFUL quote, and the "kind and gentle spirit" one made me smile.

    Have a wonderful week, Linda.

  34. Thanks for all the thoughtful posters, Linda. I spend most of my days alone, so many are relevant. I heard a knock on the back door just now, it was a Steller's Jay politely reminding me to put some seed out. He could join the squirrel as a couple of my more rascally visitors.
