Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all!

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Hilarious Southwest Airline Safety Presentation

Mr. Bean Prepares for his Exam

Octopus Facts - Nocturnal Hunter

Filou, a Film by Le Chateau of Montreal (TV ad...yes, it is filmed here in Montreal) This is a new ad that just came out in the last month.  :) For those of you who may not know what Le Chateau is...it is a clothing boutique.  :)  Filou, the little dog who is the star of the TV ad, is a Jack Russell Terrier.  It is a short, 30 second ad and I hope you will all enjoy it. :)  I think they did a pretty good job on this ad!

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.

Don't give up. Not yet. There is a whole life ahead of you.

Loving words are just a bunch of pretty verbal decorations if they're not backed up by loving actions.

Be so full of love, light and faith that nothing outside of you can hurt you.

Today is a good day to stop harming yourself with thoughts about the past.  Rename "negative" thinking as "nag-ative" thinking.  Stop nagging yourself about how things should have been.  Let it go.  Your mis-steps from the past don't lead you to your future.  It's the steps you take now that take you there.

Peace is not an absence of conflict, it is the ability to handle conflict by peaceful means. - Ronald Reagan

If you walk away from a goal, you'll never achieve it.

Don't rush things.  When the time is right, it will happen.

It's not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.

May there be blessings behind every door you enter!

The most important things are often heard when there's not a sound.

The smell of rain can help reduce stress and raise the mood up to 60%.

A little thought and a little kindness are often worth more than a great deal of money. - John Ruskin

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. You are spoiling me with these Mr. Bean posts! Hilarious!

  2. Hello Linda
    A nice post but the owl is my absolute Favorite ;-))
    Greetings Sadie

  3. "Loving words are just a bunch of pretty verbal decorations if they're not backed up by loving actions." - This calls out to me today, Linda. Very true! Thank you for sharing! :D

  4. Dear Linda
    Thank you for the nice comment on my blog.
    I wish you a happy week and send you a lot of greetings from Switzerland. Yvonne

  5. Yes, I've seen a few of those airline safety presentations - some of them were really good, so very funny and so entertaining. Definitely a welcome change from the usual read-off-the-script ones on most airlines.

    Air New Zealand produces very nice safety videos every year - they play them on their flights.

  6. That Mr. Bean video is one of the best! :D

  10. Mr Bean and Filou are my today's favourites...

  11. love you dear friend.

  12. coucou je passe te dire bonne journée

    ici ciel gris il annonce les premières neiges fondantes fin de semaine ....

    aujourd'hui je reste au chaud et Picasso est couché a 20 cm du poêle au bois :)


  13. Bonjour Linda,
    J'aime bien le vidéo du petit chien Filou, il est adorable!!



  14. That's a good one Linda - the sibling parrots. Trust you to find a positive in rain. I must remember that advice next the I moan about our UK weather

  15. Same series (gag and Mr. Bean), Linda, and good !

  16. OMG, totally in love with the inflight annoucement! Being an ex-flight attendant, I wish I had thechance to make that kind of announcement. Hahaha!

  17. Another great collection of good quotes and all these lovely quotes describe you, my darling friend. I was laughing at first video, people didn't smell anything, why they changed their facial expressions ?? :))

  18. Saying...don't give up...a good one..

  19. Hi! Mr.Bean is very popular in our country too. Thanks for sharing.

  20. The little dog is priceless.

  21. Good morning, dear Linda! Three months after the 9-11 terror attacks, I took a plane flight and observed a flight attendant sobbing. It was disconcerting. I don't know if I would like it any better if a flight attendant turned the safety presentation into a stand-up comedy routine. The segment of Mr. Bean reminds me of all those important exams I took in school and how much I dreaded them. The octopus is one of my favorite animals. It is amazing how complex a creature it is. I have dined on octopus meat in restaurants. I predict that the ad campaign starring Filou the Jack Russell Terrier will be a hit.

    Thank you, dear friend Linda!

  22. That Southwest Airlines spiel is hilarious...but how does that flight attendant talk that fast?! I had to read the words to understand what she was saying. I guess I don't listen as fast as she talks.

  23. Nice post again.
    And I like your polls.
    Have happy Tuesday.

  24. Great videos I have a son-in-law who works for Southwest airline in Portland, Oregon so I got a good laugh out of that video also the one of Mr. Bean. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  25. Hilarious Southwest Airline Safety Presentation. I couldn't stop from laughing. I hope that when I get my flight to Miami, that stewardess acts just like this one. It would make me feel so at ease. Thank you Linda.
    Have a cool, but wonderful Tuesday. See ya.

  26. That Southwest flight attendant was hilarious!

  27. Loved that ad with the dogs; and Mr. Bean is always a winner. But most of all I appreciate the posters by Karen Salmansohn. Thank you!

  28. That's why I LOVE Southwest! They always keep people laughing. I've been on some flights where it's all just standard, but they can be especially fun on some of those flights. The flight attendants on my flight to Vegas were super awesome!

  29. Loved the gag. How embarrassing. She did a great job.

    Southwest safety presentation. I loved this. So talented.

    Mr. Bean cracks me up. You don't hear him speak very often either.

    Oh the Jack Russell. So cute.

    Have a terrific day Linda. ☺

  30. it's cool to see mr bean here in a video! my grandparents and aunts used to love watching him, and they'd always laugh at his antics :)

  31. Gracias Linda, cuanto y buen trabajo haces para nosotros. Se muy feliz. Besos.

  32. Bonjour ma belle Linda, merci pour ce beau moment, l'octopus est superbe! Bise et bon mardi dans la joie!

  33. A very hilarious safety instructions by the air stewardess. Lovely quotes but age gracefully is a good reminder to me.

  34. Hi! Thanks a lot for visiting my blog :) I hope you will follow my blog. Oh, and I love Mr Bean! I wish you all the best! Greetings from Poland!

  35. Mr Bean every time Linda it never fails...

  36. Like the air security video, maybe I should try Southwest once.


  37. Parrot siblings... how appropriate!

  38. funny parrot one

  39. Negative and nag-ative! Genius!

  40. Very funny Safety instruction...but oho boy, she speaks so fast! Very entertaining! I have to show this to my husband.
    I love the quote - May there be blessing behind every door you enter! Nice!

  41. My beautiful Linda,
    I've enjoyed Mr. Bean's video so much ( Hubby and I laughed like two children ! ) and about the quotes, the one by John Ruskin .... well, I've written it on my notebook for not to forget it .... I love you !!!
    Sending hugs
