Tuesday Cheer

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
I made an extra and special post today, and here is the link.  Special Note to all my Readers and Friends

The videos I have selected for this post are:

A Just for Laughs Gag/Juste pour Rire

Stanford Inn Christmas Lights Entrance

Gap of Dunloe, Killarney, Ireland

Holiday DIY - How to Make a Snow Globe

It's So Nice to be with You - Gallery

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.

It's time for cozy fires, candlelight and hot cocoa...it's sweater weather!

Listen with an open heart.

A kind gesture can reach a wound that only compassion can heal. - Steve Maraboli

You don't have to be ready to recover, you need only to be willing.

A head full of fears has no space for dreams.

Go on a "toxic conversation" cleanse.  Vow not to complain or gossip for 7 days.  Gain happiness, calm and more loving bonds.

Not responding is a response too.

Your speed doesn't matter...forward is forward.

There are some days I only feel like talking to my dog.

Stop holding onto people who keep letting go of you. Pay attention to faithful people.  The ones you don't have to impress.  The ones who always have your back.  The ones who love you with no strings attached.

Food can make your taste buds happy.  But it can't make YOU happy.  Stop emotional eating.

There's a reason your windshield is bigger than your rear view mirror.  Where you're headed is much more important than what you've left behind.

I have to plug my phone into the charger so much throughout the day that I basically have a landline again.

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!

    Bonjour et merci pour tout ce que tu partages Linda !

    Bises et bonne continuation.

  2. Good morning, dear Linda!

    I enjoyed the tour of the Stanford Inn all decked out for Christmas. Mrs. Shady and I were early to bed last night and early to rise because I needed to drive her to another city for eye surgery. As we drove through our town in the pre-dawn darkness we were stunned to see the main street lined with Christmas decorations, block after block of trees and bushes and houses with strings of colored lights on them all glowing in the dark and lighting our way out of town. It was breathtaking! Mrs Shady is part Irish and we have often talked about visiting Ireland. Gap of Dunloe, Killarney, looks like a lovely, natural, peaceful, relaxing setting. I think it's been thirty years or more since I last heard "Nice To Be With You," the hit single by Gallery, the Detroit sextet led by Jim Gold. The record made it into the top 5 in the late spring and early summer of 1972 and stayed on the chart an impressive 13 weeks!

    Thank you very much, dear friend Linda!

  3. Great words for today! I especially find the one about the cell phone true and funny! Hope all is well for you Linda. :)

  4. Nice Christmas lights!

    It's not available in Britain. :(

    Ireland is very beautiful Linda, thanks for sharing this video.

  7. bisous

    avec un ciel clair un timide soleil mais du vent un peu froid ... ça reste l'automne

    a demain

  8. Good morning, I love the Ireland video. Ireland is on my bucklet list, would love to visit. Great quotes and advice. Happy Tuesday, enjoy your day!

  9. Después de un tiempo vuelvo a ver sus entradas y en esta al vídeo de Irlanda me gusto mucho ya que ese tipo de paisajes me encantan.
    Sus reflexiones siguen siendo muy acertadas y curiosas como la de ayer sobre los primeros 40 años de la infancia.


  10. I'm sorry you're having trouble getting the JFL gags. I do enjoy them. So does my hubby. But I know you'll continue to have an uplifting and enjoyable blog even if they become unavailable.

  11. Enjoyed the Ireland video. I always enjoy visiting your blog. Great quotes. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  12. Always enjoy your Blog Linda! Some days I only feel like talking to my cats! LOL!

  13. WOW!! L'Irlande est vraiment un endroit magnifique

    Gros bisous


  14. I like the idea of no gossip or complaining for a week. I need to try this!

  15. Great gag again. Hope we don't lose those. I love them!

  16. Great variety - love the quotes!! Thank you for making my day more beautiful, Linda!

  17. I think I've seen this gag somewhere before. I know I've seen it somewhere before. They are all good though.

    Love the Christmas tree lights. Beautiful.

    Have a terrific day Linda. ☺

  18. Dear Linda, you are so kind to go to all this trouble over the gags. I fear it might be a move on their part for more monetization! Argh ~ maybe I listen to CNBC , financial channel too much! I'm enjoying your music videos. I like to play them as I read through the quotes, so I appreciate where you place them in the blog. Terry told me that he has biked the full circuit in the Gap of Dunloe. It looks wonderful. Loved the Christmas lights.

    So many wonderful quotes. If someone wounds you, a kind gesture of response to that person, can make you feel better too. Lots of times when people strike out, you are not the target. Our world is so hyper reactive and stressful.

    I've been so behind in everything and barely lurching forward. forward is forward felt like a blessing.

    Hugs to you, my Montreal friend. Have an awesome day!

  19. I would love to spend a whole lot of time in Ireland.

  20. Believe it or not, I have actually been hiking in the Gap of Dunloe in Ireland before! I can confirm that it really is that beautiful! And I definitely agree that there are some days when I only feel like talking to my dog or cat, haha--especially during the holiday season when there are soooo many people around!

  21. Nice log, Linda !

  22. I always play the music ones for my husband because he is a music trivia buff. He usually gets them!

  23. j'aime bien "Your speed doesn't matter" Linda

  24. It’s lovely to come and visit your blog and read wonderful quotations and watch your great selection of videos. It is a breath of fresh air after watching the News on TV!

  25. I think the Just For Laughs people owe you something for bringing their videos to so many people.

  26. The quotes from Karen are always so inspiring and on the dot. Thank you for sharing.

  27. Yes, it's nice to be with you Linda.

  28. I'm still feeling amazed by your video about Ireland, I wonder how much I do love it !
    Everything here is always so refreshing, fun and deep in the meanwhile ... Thank you my blessed Linda, you're truly wonderful !

    Have a marvellous remainder of your week,
    sending big big tender hugs

  29. Oh, I think you are very talented. You should definitely showcase your blog.

  30. Very interesting videos and posting. I voted my favourite flowers. Lots of orchids in Singapore but hardly any tulips.
    Thanks for visiting my blog.

  31. I like the forward is forward one

  32. Listen with an open heart - wisely said. Do not judge.
