Monday Melody and My Poll

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! 
For those of you who missed my last post or are new to my blog, I posted a poll, which you can find at the upper right hand column of my blog just beneath the translator.  All votes are anonymous, even to myself, and you don't need to even be a regular follower to respond to the poll, it will just help me to share more of what you all enjoy!  Thank you so much for taking a moment to respond to this poll.  :)

The videos I have selected for this post are:

Why You Should Never Leave Your Keys Lying Around

War Veterans Overcome PTSD with Country Dancing


Amazing Facts About Seahorses

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 the little moments together that make the best memories forever.


Today, find happiness in the simple, little things that make life beautiful.


Sometimes, you just need a change in perspective.


Your words have great power.  Use them to support and inspire.


Inner peace comes the moment you choose not to allow another person or event to control your emotions.





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!

  11. Hi Linda...enjoyed this post much, especially the video about the key. Actually, one shouldn't leave anything laying about that has important private info on it...because with cell phones, the bad guys can get all they need in a matter of seconds to engage in identity theft! Have a great week!

  21. Hi Linda, We used to learn country dancing in one of our school lessons. We are in a all girls school and because of my height, I take the male role. It was really enjoyable.

  45. I did vote and choose a few things I liked, but I wanted to make a comment. When I read blogs, I like to read the user's thoughts, insights, about their day, etc. I like to see how other families do things and what life is like in other parts of the country. In other words, I think a blog should be more for the writer and not solely for the entertainment of others. I hope that makes sense. Write your thoughts to make you happy and to help you do what you need for you! Blessings!

  48. I enjoyed each of the featured videos. Who knew that you could copy a key that way! My heart goes out to all the sufferers of PTSD and the wonderful people who try to help them. Seahorses are fascinating. There are a couple of places in Vegas where I can watch them, always mesmerizing. Words are incredibly powerful, and I treasure yours for their ability to inspire! Take care, my special friend!
