Thursday Thrills

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have selected for this post are:

Justin Trudeau's New Cabinet The Most Diverse In Canadian History (you do not have to be knowledgeable in Canadian politics to appreciate this video)  I am very happy for Justin Trudeau and I wish him and the entire government the best.



A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire


Celtic Highlands Music - Scottish Isles


House of the Week: Cave House in Arizona

Underground House (into the hill) (Traditional Swiss Instruments March)

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.

If they breathe they live.  If they live they feel. If they feel they love.  If they love they are aware. If they are aware they have a soul. - A.D. Williams


Sometimes things don't move as quickly as we'd like...but slow progress is better than no progress.


A miserable heart means a miserable life, a cheerful heart fills the day with a song.


In life, many things don't go according to plan.  If you fall, get back up.  If you stumble, regain your balance.  Never give up!


Quick fixes don't fix anything.  If you want long-lasting change you must change your lifestyle - what you think and do on a daily basis.



Life is sweet, and bitter, beautiful and painful, and a blessing to be here.  Live to your fullest.  Don't waste time on fear and regret.  Okay?


Don't allow a love problem to become an eating problem.  Stop trying to stuff down your feelings with food.


Be patient.  Eventually you will see the beauty in your chaos, the purpose in your pain.


Don't let the darkness of your past block the light of joy in your present.  What happened is done.  Stop giving time to things that no longer exist when there is so much joy to be found in the here and now.


There are 2 types of pain in this world.  Pain that simply hurts you, and pain that inspires you to grow.


Do what you can to avoid or neutralize conversations which put people down.  Think with your heart.


Letting go of unhappy thoughts and memories is an act of self care.


Your kindness is like a ray of sunshine...shining light and warming hearts.


She was unstoppable not because she did not have failures or doubts, but because she continued on despite them.


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!

  15. Interesting way of making a house in the hillside. Lovely having all those pools and running water. Not sure about Justin yet, starting well.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Ha, ha! It was fun to read the thoughts of the people in the gag, as they watched that big, tough-looking guy get on that pink, girly bicycle and ride away. The cave house looked interesting. I'd like to see that in person.

  18. Hello Linda,
    j'ai regardé avec interêt la vidéo de Justin Trudeau.Jeme souviens de lui, lorsqu'il était petit garçon et que son père était Prime Minister.
    C'est une très belle idée 15 femmes et 15 hommes tous differents. Oui, c'est ça le canada !

  23. Hello Linda, I wonder if it would be possible to move to Canada – it sounds like my kind of place!
    Love the gag, you do find the funniest things.
    The cave house is amazing but I’m not sure I could sleep under all that rock.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Among other things, I like that our new minister of national defence has been an active soldier with tours of duty. I wouldn't like to mess with him!

    ReplyDelete
  25. The cave house looks very interesting!
    I like the quote about quick fixes - it's very true.

    ReplyDelete
  26. We were just having a conversation about keeping away from negative people. With my hubby's cancer, we enjoy each day and laugh a lot!

  27. Justin is the true crown prince alright, I agree, L ... let's hope his true colours remain pure red and white as our flag ... O Canada ... Love, cat.

  33. I stuck my hand in Linda's Treasure Chest of Goodies and pulled out the video on cave house in Bisbee. Wow, what a place. My father lived in Tombstone Arizona which was about ...hmmm..i think 20 miles or so from Bisbee. I've visited there often in the past. Stirred up some good memories.

  35. Are you having less issues with the robot stuff?

  36. Dear Linda happy that Canada seems to have such a diverse cabinet. Wishing your wonderful country the best in the coming year.
    Enjoyed hearing that lovely Celtic music. It always calls to my heart because I am part Scottish. Have a super day. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Good for Canada! Happy for you. (Please send best wishes South that we may be so fortunate next year. ). Thanx for the inspiration s!

  38. I adore Celtic music!!! This has prompted me to go put a few CD's on to listen to today!
    Thank you for your thoughts and prayers for Louis Dean!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Are they any blind people in the Cabinet?
    I always have a soft spot for them.
    For they can't see how wonderful this world really is.

    ReplyDelete
  40. I've heard good things about Trudeau. I love that diversity is FINALLY making its way into leadership here, too. An African-American President, then maybe a female President. I honestly didn't think I'd see it in my lifetime, but things have really moved forward in recent years...gay marriage, marijuana legalization. Minds are really opening up here!!!

  41. Great gag, Linda, and houses, and quotes !

    ReplyDelete
  42. Well that sure is a bit of fun - looking at different types of homes.

  46. Justin Trudeau is something of a rock star here in Australia. Women here love the fact that half his cabinet are women.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Love the quote about a cheerful heart filling the day with a song. I also like the "Never give up" one. One of my favorite quotes is Clemenceau's "In war, as in peace, the last word goes to those who never give up."

    ReplyDelete
  48. Justin Trudeau is charismatic!...wow, he is so young! Today's Just for laugh is so cute!
    I love the quotes you have chosen for this post. Be patient...I love that...although it's tough to be patient.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Thanks for visiting Linda. Great to know another Canadian, having known so many who are really kind and helpful. I love your well designed blog. Nice homely feeling to it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I have found so much inspiration here today, Linda.
    You have filled my lonely, fretful hours with genuine awe and wonder!
    Thank you so, so much...:)

  51. I loved the quote "she was unstoppable." That was beautiful - do you know who wrote that, and may I share it on my blog someday? And I love the "kindness" quote and will pass it on to Jess, as she has a lot of kindness in her always. I like the "be patient" quote too.

    Thanks for encouraging and for shining your light, Linda.
