  6. Happy Thursday, my Montreal friend! I'm home! Still up because I can't get to sleep! "Stay curious." I think being curious is one of the most important things in life! It's the antidote to boredom for sure! Hugs!

  14. I don’t want to be a person who never learns. I didn’t know the baby panda right after birth was so tiny and fragile-looking, too small compared to the mother panda. Thanks for the encouragement and inspiration through the works introduced in this post as always.

  15. Good morning, dear Linda! These videos made me laugh and cry. It was interesting to watch the reactions of various people when the prankster got conked in the head with the cash register drawer. Some looked horrified while others struggled to keep from laughing out loud. Isn't it amazing how the mother panda instinctively knows what to do and how to care for her tiny newborn cubs? Kumenkaffi looks like a delicious cold weather beverage. My favorite video was the Oregon horse sanctuary. Bless that woman for vowing that every one of her rescued horses will have only good days and happiness from now until the day they die. Wonderful!

    Happy Thursday, dear friend Linda!

  34. The horse sanctuary in Oregon was SO interesting! Thank you for sharing,
    We have a small sanctuary in Long Island for a few horses and I love visiting them every year. They're happy and so well taken care of. How lucky this girl is to have so much property that she can have so many horses!

  42. Enjoyed all the videos. I even want to try the Norwegian coffee but something tells me it wouldn't taste nearly as good since I don't have an open fire place to set the scene and roast the caraway seeds. The horse sanctuary is beautiful and the horses seem to love their caregiver. How wonderful that the woman got her dream fulfilled. Have a great weekend, Linda.
