Wednesday Wonders and a New Poll!

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have added a new poll at the top right hand column of my blog.  I am just wondering if you all prefer to eat out or at home!  Thank you so much for taking the time to vote in my polls, I really appreciate it!

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Dogs get Massages for the First Time

Red Sea Hotel Grand Makadi

Animal Affection

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.

My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and what misses me was never meant for me. - Iman Shafi


Mental illness is a disease just like cancer or heart disease.  Anxiety disorders: (panic disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, phobias) about 18.2% of American adults.  Mood disorders: (major depressive disorder, dysthymic disorder, bipolar disorder) about 9.5% of American adults. Personality disorders: (antisocial, avoidant, and borderline personality disorders) about 9.5% of American adults.  Eating disorders: (anorexia, bulimia, binge eating disorders) about 4.4% of American adults. Let's replace stigma with empathy and support!


Sugar is the sociopath of foods.  It acts sweet...but it's really poison.


With a little discipline and regular self-checks, you can learn to do one thing at a time.  And do it better. And be happier doing it.


There are some people who always seem angry and continuously look for conflict.  Walk away.  The battle they are fighting is not with you, it is with themselves.


Don't allow mindless drama to stress you out. Breathe and let it go.


One of the greatest gifts is the gift of kindness...and it's very affordable!


Rudeness is the weak person's imitation of strength.


No use trying to give light to the world when you are feeling stormy inside;  no one deserves your love, this very moment, more than you do.


Nature itself is the best physician. - Hippocrates


Canadian Standoff  :)








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!

  2. Good morning, dear Linda! Since I'll be busy later this morning and all day, I decided to stay up late and visit you. That gag meister's groin takes quite a beating in the various pranks he stages, doesn't it? :) I would love to visit that luxury resort on the Red Sea! I enjoyed watching the massage therapist working with dogs. They really seemed to enjoy her rubdowns. The donkey therapy is another wonderful idea. I always perk up when an animal of any type is present, and those ailing seniors came to life when the donkey made a surprise visit to their assisted living facility. Animals are wonderful and it makes me very sad when they are abused or slaughtered for sport.

    Thank you very much dear friend Linda!

  10. Happy Wednesday Linda ♡

    I like the premise of this quote, I'm hoping to get to this point soon...My heart is at ease knowing that what was meant for me will never miss me, and what misses me was never meant for me. - Iman Shafi

  12. I'm wondering if people in Montreal are getting wise to the gag people? I found some really helpful posters here today, and love those last couple of paintings. I've got to find someone to give me a massage, though! :)

    Yea for the elections! May it all goes as well here next year but I don't have much hope of that. There are some things seriously lacking in this country such as common sense, empathy, kindness, knowledge, etc.

    Love the art by Candy Waters. I think she is very talented!

  21. Linda, where is Red Sea Hotel Grand Makadi? Also, you are correct with the fact about " don't allowing mindless drama to stress you out. Breathe and let it go." It helped me a great deal.
    Have a wonderful Wednesday my friend. See ya.

  22. Loved those animal videos! And the Canadian standoff - that happens here in Portland, Oregon at four way stop signs (You go first. No, you first. No, you first...). You could sit there for hours. Great quotes & artwork. Thank you, Linda!

  23. Today's poll is a hard one for me. I don't really like to cook, so we do eat out a lot. Often, though, we get carryout...the best of both worlds. :)

  24. A Canadian standoff! Perfect!

    The dogs seem to be in bliss getting a massage.

  27. Fabulous choice of quotes and inspiration today (well, always, Linda). I like what you said about mental illness and sugar - All illnesses are difficult to deal with, and mental illnesses are usually not caused by the sufferer. Sugar certainly does act sweet, and is not our friend! hugs, de
