Tuesday Cheer and a New Translator...Again

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I have removed the translator I had added the other day and changed it for one that will translate in more languages.  I hope this will help any of you who need and use it.  Thank you so much!  :)

The videos I have chosen for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Meet Koko's New Kittens

Organize a Small Pantry - Under $20

Mr. Bean - Arriving at the Launderette

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.

Sorry!  Out getting a fresh coat of wax on my broom.

Sometimes things have to fall away...but only to make room for a new season.

What to do when anxiety makes you feel like a failure:  1. Maintain Perspective...life may feel hopeless today, but it is because of a mental illness that distorts your thoughts, feelings and physical reactions.  The hopeless feeling will pass.
2. Stay Productive...productivity is relative. Some days, being productive means getting out of bed. Keep track of even the small wins.
3. Be patient with yourself...anxiety is a disease that tell you that you don't have a disease.  Anxiety says you are a failure.  Remember that anxiety lies. - Greg Weber

If you have the power to make someone happy, do it.  The world needs more of that.

Your life becomes the story you tell yourself. Change the story you tell.  Change your life.

My favorite childhood memory is not paying bills.

Often life's greatest lessons come from making the worst mistakes.

Inhale.  Exhale.  Everything is going to be okay. Psssst...actually it's going to turn out even better than okay.  You'll see.

No matter where you are in life, celebrate it!  It's either a product of your growth or a place that will help you to grow.  Cheers to today!

When it is all finished you will see it was never random.  In the meantime, have faith all is happening for a reason.  Look for the lesson, the gift, the bridge you are to take to get yourself where you need to be.

Your mistakes are to help you develop your purpose not shame and guilt.

Relax now, rest, let go of trying to manage the universe...does your heart need your help in order to beat?  Do you need to take thought in order to breathe?  Surrender to the higher intelligence that breathes you and that operates the whole universe.

In the blink of an eye everything can change. So forgive often and love with all your heart.  You may not have that chance again.

There is drama and there is peace.  I choose peace. - Kristine Carlson

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. hope you are having a great week.

    Merci Linda pour ce partage.

    Ce post est super!
    J'aime beaucoup la vidéo de M. Bean "Arriving at the Launderette"

    Bises et bonne continuation!

  3. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I had to laugh at the gag video because the pranked people were partly screaming and partly laughing as the stunt man zoomed away on his rollerblades. I have seen other videos of Koko the gorilla. It's incredible how docile the powerful beast is and gentle with fragile kittens. Their bond is touching. I never grow tired of watching organizing tips because I always learn something new. Mrs. Shady and I shop at a Dollar Tree a few blocks away and plan to load up on those baskets and other space savers. It's always fun to watch Mr. Bean, a man who has the odds stacked against him, Bean never fails to make us laugh at his misfortune.

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  4. The kitten one was so sad. she just wants a baby.

  5. I love the Dollar stores! Dollar Tree - Dollar General - all of them!!!

    Koko is so brave!

  7. émouvant Koko avec les chatons
    gros bisous et belle journée ici temps gris encore

  8. Your blog always makes me feel great - the quotes, the funny videos (even Mr. Beans!) just always a light and happy visit here xxx


  9. Yes, be happy always and spread the joy all around us. We certainly do need a lot of that!

  10. Your polls are such a delight and I always look forward to them. They remind me of the fun multiple choice quizzes that ladies magazines used to run (some still do, but they're nowhere near as common these days).

    Thank you for another fantastic roundup and reminder of some of the most important lessons and outlooks we can have in life.

    Big hugs & happy mid-November wishes,
    ♥ Jessica

  11. Encore une très jolie sélection.
    J'apprécie beaucoup le gorille et le chaton. Belle journée à toi. Bises Linda

  12. I'm busy telling myself a revised story of my life today. I think that might help! I've also got a nice pair of roller blades but at my age broken bones are not a good thing, so they're put away in the attic. Mr. Bean - what fun. In fact, I just bought one of his movies. Watching that is a great way to end a busy, hectic day!

  13. Great gag, Linda !
    Organize... -> fantastic !
    Mr. Bean -> always good !

  14. that's my favorite childhood memory too

  15. Bonjour Linda,
    J'ai beaucoup aimé voir Koko avec les chatons :)



  16. The gorilla video was very touching. Very funny gag and Mr. Bean video. I shop at the dollar tree quite often. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  17. Thanks for sharing more great quotes today!

  18. " There is drama and there is peace. I choose peace. " and boy do I agree with that one. Good morning Linda. Hope that you're feeling good today. Mr. Bean was a gas. What a laughable man.
    Have a great Tuesday my friend. See ya.

    Cruisin Paul

  19. One always wonders what the cats think of the gorilla. Koko's been around a very long time.

  20. it's cool to see a mr bean video here! i remember watching some of his shows with my family back when i was a teenager ... but i know he's not as popular in north america as he is in some other parts of the world :)

  21. I don't even know if I have a translator on my blog!

  22. Loved the gag. Too funny.

    Koko and the kitties. Awww, so precious.

    Love Mr. Bean. He's so funny.

    Have a fabulous day Linda. Hope you're feeling well again. ☺

  23. Awww the video of Koko and kittens is so adorable! Made me smile big :-)

  24. If you have the power .. a ma préférence Linda


  25. De bien bonnes idées pour les armoires! Bise et bon mardi tout doux ma belle Linda!

  26. Jajajajaja, Hola Linda, lo que me e reido con el primer video, muy bueno. Muchas gracias y mil besinos..

  27. I'm so pleased you enjoy Mr Bean. He is one of our greatest exports and there's no need for a translator in most parts of the world!

  28. The Koko video is overwhelmingly sweet and beautiful. Thanks for sharing all of this with us!

  29. Linda, I like the "paying bills" quote and "no matter where you are" quote, but my favorite was the "I choose peace" quote. I think I will write that one down. Such encouraging words always, my friend.

    Have a blessed week, and I'm glad you liked my red kitchen.


  30. Hello Linda,
    Mr Bean is always fun. It doesn't matter how much you see this movies. It's always great and so funny.
    Nice movie about Koko.

    Many greetings,

  31. I remember reading a children's book on Koko. What an incredible animal.

  32. I really like the story about how one season must cease to make room for a new season! LOVE IT! thank you so much for the encouragement today, and every day, Linda! xoxox

  33. This one's a blast: Princess Sassy Pants & Co

    cause sometimes, it's ok not to be ok. :)

  34. Hi, Linda! I often shared a video on Koko and kittens with my students over the years. And the gag and Mr. Bean made me laugh. I've lived long enough to begin to see the patterns in my life and to know that most bad things turn out to be good things in the long run. And yes, I've had those bad days of depression and anxiety when just getting out of bed was a major accomplishment; but I know they will pass. thanks for another funny and inspiring post that made me smile and feel grateful, dear friend!

  35. That "fall" quote is for me. There's this new season in my life right now.

  36. Koko and kittens are so cute! I enjoyed it very much!
    Thank you for the wonderful quotes.

  37. Loved Koko and the kittens and had a good laugh at the roller blades and Mr Bean . . . lol

  38. Always enjoyable, thank you Linda :)

  39. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Your own is filled with warmth and encouragement.

    We love Montreal. We live in northwest Vermont, just a short drive from the city. It has become an important part of our lives over the past few years, and not just because of IKEA.

  40. Cross your fingers for amateurs:

    La vie est tout au sujet de la paix . Nous devons poursuivre sans relâche .

    Comme je l'ai dit avant , vous êtes une telle personne douce et votre site est très agréable.

    Voilà tout la langue française , je peux gérer .

    Bonne soirée Linda


  42. It's always fun watching the people in the JFL gags, and today was no exception. A touching video about Koko and her kittens, too.

  43. Belos vídeos e bom trabalho.
    Um abraço e continuação de uma boa semana.

  44. I think have to add one more to when anxiety makes you feel like a failure:

    -avoid negative people
