  10. Thoroughly enjoyed the videos. Loved the old ads and learning about hyenas. I will have to check out the Bewitched video later as it told me to go directly to YouTube and will do that soon. The artwork was lovely. Thank you Linda, another great start to the day.

  11. I've never heard of dumbo octopus before, but it does look like dumbo :-)
    Beautiful art works. I love the ones by Energy Artist Julia.
    Have a wonderful day!

  12. Love all the kitty art! The dumbo video I'm not sure I understand. It sure looks like a wee wet elephant that swims! And I get so nostalgic with stuff from the 50s and 60s...I remember those as fun years but still difficult in many ways. Bewitched! I've seen some re-runs of that recently and always enjoy them, even though the whole idea is dumb. But we miss the good old sitcoms, so we buy the entire series of shows like "Frasier," or "Cheers," or "Mary Tyler Moore," or "The Odd Couple." And it's great fun watching them without all those annoying commercials!

  26. octopi (octopuses?) are such intelligent creatures. I'm sure you heard the wonderful story about Inky the Octopus who escaped from the aquarium in New Zealand. http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2016/04/14/octopus-escape-artists-aquariums/83019170/

  27. It was only recently reading about octopuses that I realised how clever these animals are.

  28. Lovely cats!!! They should think about having these for their street artworks in Kuching, our state capital. Kuching means cat in Malay, our national language. They have cat statues all over the city and even a Cat Museum.
