Earth was created for all of us, not some of us. - Anthony Williams


I have never met a strong person with an easy past.


Focus less on how far or how fast you're going today - and more on enjoying the ride!


Say goodbye to self doubt! And to the fear of following your heart!  Rest in pieces!


A little bit of tea is good for the soul.


You've had the power all along...

For those of you who love Princess Sassy Pants, there is a book coming out soon by Princess and the Pup!  I will share more about this soon.  Stay tuned!


I'm not perfect.  I make mistakes.  And I appreciate those who stay with me after knowing who I truly am.


Here's an easy exercise for reducing stress:  Sit. Breathe. Repeat.


I appreciate people who are honest in a warmly direct way.  There's less hurt, stress and surprise battles to be fought.  And more communication, understanding and peace of mind.


It's sad how fast someone can become a total stranger.


Life is like making tea!  Boil your ego, evaporate your worries, dilute your sorrows, filter your mistakes and get taste of happiness.


Overcoming bullying can and will be done with courage and support. - Estelle Bonaceto






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. Hi, dear Linda!

    That fake pepper spray gag worked well judging from the horrified expressions on the faces of those duped mall rats. I must tell you that I am enjoying the German entertainers you've been posting. It's fun and exciting to listen to songs sung in a foreign language. I never saw a raccoon tame enough to become a pet and be handled and bathed. He behaved like a typical dog and kept trying to escape. I wonder if he will roll in poop first chance he gets to cover up the shampoo smell. :) I thoroughly enjoyed the a Capella vocal group White Winter Hymnal and can understand why they are popular in your region. Mrs. Shady and I have discussed traveling abroad and visiting Wales. Thanks for the Cardiff tour!

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  4. Cardiff!!! I was selected to go there for further studies for two years, sponsored by our government...but I had to turn it down then as my girl was still too small. Missed opportunity! I did get to go to Plymouth in the UK later though, a short course for 3 months, also government sponsored. That was really great!

  24. I loved the a capella group... the German music notsomuch (sorry!).
    Did you get the program La Chance aux Chansons in Quebec? It was an old French singing show similar to the German one you showed. I always found it oddly fascinating, especially the host.

  25. The raccoon!!! I really thought he would be more into it, but looked like when I used to give Iroh baths. Love those paws :)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bwahahahahahahaha on the pepper spray. When that came out we had a training day on the use and application. We had to experience the effects. That's some powerful stuff that takes most folks out with just a drop or two.

    I'm not so sure the racoon liked that bath. So cute though.

    Have a terrific day Linda. ☺

  31. What a nice Wednesday afternoon break to share time with you. :) :)

  32. Giving a raccoon a bath looks like a major project. It was obvious he didn't really care for the process, but it was equally obvious that his human was determined.

  33. Sit. Breathe. Repeat. Sit. Breathe. Repeat. Doing that right now. ;-)
