Schools are producing test takers, while life needs thinkers and innovators. - Bette Fetter

You need to learn how to select your thoughts just the same way you select your clothes every day. This is a power you can cultivate.  If you want to control things in your life so bad, work on the mind.  That's the only thing you should be trying to control. - Elizabeth Gilbert

You may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated.  In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats, so you can know who you are, what you can rise from and how you can still come out of it. - Maya Angelou

Are you hungry...or thirsty?  Studies have shown that 37% of people mistake hunger for thirst, because the signals are similar.  (i.e. feeling weak, dizzy, cranky) So, next time you think you're hungry, drink water. There's a good chance your cravings for food will pass.  Plus, drinking water fills you up and boosts your body's ability to burn fat.

The world is change by your example, not your opinion. - Paulo Coelho

Do not underestimate yourself by comparing yourself with others.  It's our differences that make us unique and beautiful.

The four agreements...1. Be impeccable with your word.  2.  Don't take anything personally.  3. Don't make assumptions.  4. Always do your best. - Miguel Ruiz

Life isn't as serious as the mind makes it out to be. - Eckhart Tolle

Sometimes you have to just hang on and trust that life's storms are carrying you to better shores.

It is in herself she will find the strength she needs.

Connected canines.  :)

Grass fed cows...grass-fed beef.  Low saturated fat levels, high in "good fat" omega-3's, high doses of conjugated linoleic acid, thought by many to be a cancer fighter.  Reduced exposure to E.coli bacteria, features an agricultural process that is ecologically friendly.

When you're hot, you're hot!

The secret of happiness lies in the mind's release of worldly ties. - Buddha

Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!


  1. I like the example-opinion one

  2. I agree 100% with that Bette Fetter quotation. Sad, really very sad the way education is heading especially around Asian countries. Excellent test scores, that is all everyone cares about.

  3. All very enjoyable again. Thank you Linda :)

  4. Encore une super variété de posts. Bisous de bonne journée

    The Scrambled Egg Muffins, seem to me very tasty Linda. I wish you a happy Wednesday.

  8. We have Miguel Ruiz's 4 agreements on the fridge :-) Mr Bean cracked me up as usual, good way to begin a day, with giggles.

  9. je te souhaite une belle journée

    temps gris ici et froid



    La couleur verte
    entre les mains
    de l’automne
    La mort maquille
    les feuilles
    pour leurs noces
    avec le givre
    Un silence très ancien
    se loge
    dans la lumière
    qui se tait
    et le Temps jette
    les heures insouciantes
    dans un feu sans mémoire

    Kamal Zerdoumi

  10. Those Just For Laughs gags always make me LOL. I watch them all the time on YTV:)
    Thanks for these inspiring images as always:)

  11. Hello Linda!:) Thank you for the amusing Mr Bean clip, and the Jamie Oliver recipe's. All the different ways to make scambled eggs look delicious. After seeing the vídeo I feel like making the English version tonight.:))

  12. liked everything

  13. You've got a bunch of real winners today, Linda. The Heimlich Maneuver, the Andrew Sisters (one of my favorite groups as a young person), Mr. Bean, of course, is unbeatable. I've never heard of scrambled egg muffins but they look good. Most important to me are the Karen Salmansohn quotes! Merci beaucoup !

  14. LOL--the connected canines one is hilarious. Thank you for my daily dose of "smile."

  15. For years, I worked in a truck manufacturing company; so it was really interesting to me to see that airplane going down the assembly line.

  16. Hi Linda..
    Thanks for your visit..
    Have a grate week and welcome back to my blog..
    Lots og hugs.. Snow White

  17. Love Southwest Airlines...usually dependable and easy. Scrambled egg muffins look wonderful.

  18. Linda, I love to try the scrambled egg muffins. Never underestimate ourselves and the connected canines cartoon!

  19. Lots of good stuff today! Loved the Heimlich video, and the dog social media cartoon.

  20. connected canines is just like our dog:)

  21. Scrambled egg muffins sound good!

  22. Good morning, dear Linda! I enjoyed your latest episode of the quirky, grumpy, miserly Mr. Bean. That Andrews Sisters recording brings back memories of earliest childhood. My parents collected their records and I often played them down in the basement on my tiny tinny turntable. It's amazing how much goes into making an aircraft. It's no wonder the cost of plane travel is so high.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  23. Once again you choice of videos and quotes were great. Enjoyed them all. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  24. Los pensamientos que no dejas como siempre muy acertados.


  25. Quite the tunes on that Southwest Florida One video! and fascinating. Living so close to Boeing I have always wondered what goes on in those massive hangars, and now I kinda know! Thanks Linda :) Always such wonderful surprises!

  26. Hahaha Mr. Bean is so funny! And Connected Canines cartoon is so cute!

  27. Hola Linda. Es un placer pasar un rato en tu blog, me relaja y me entretiene. Muchas gracias querida amiga. Se muy feliz.

  28. Loved the gag and really love Mr. Bean. That was a lot of work to get to his room first.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. ☺

  29. All lovely. Hearing Andrew sisters after a long time.

  30. Merci pour ce beau billet ma belle Linda, bise et bon mercredi tout doux!

  31. Hahaaa..., Linda, 2x !

  32. Mr. Bean is so funny! Now I ave to go find the rest of the episode. :-)

  33. i'm going to go fix egg sandwiches. This made me hungry. Love all the quotes today.
