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.

No one is immune from addition:  it afflicts people of all ages, races, classes and professions. - Patrick J. Kennedy


There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear.  Half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable. - Christian Nestell Bovee


Count your blessings, not your obstacles.


When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect toward others. - Dalai Lama


I cannot control all the thoughts and emotions that go through me, but what I can do is not judge myself for them. - Yogi Frog


Laugh with your eyes, hug with your soul and smile with your heart.  Have a blessed day.


Sending good vibes.


You can and will get through this.


Don't focus on who let you down.  Appreciate who lifted you up.  Don't focus on who darkened your days.  Appreciate who brightened them.


You don't gain anything from stressing.  Remember that.


Your words and actions not only influence your mood, but the moods of all who cross your path.  Speak lovingly.  Do lovingly.  Be a messenger of love.


Don't do something permanently stupid just because you are temporarily upset.






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. I really appreciated the quote:
    There is great beauty in going through life without anxiety or fear. Half our fears are baseless, and the other half discreditable

    That's good to remember. Also the "Be a Messenger of Love" quote reminded me of the song Happy Tracks

    Great post, Linda. Thanks!

  2. Isn't it amazing the computer advances that have occurred in the last 60 years? Now we can carry a computer in our pockets! Incredible.

  5. I wonder how many today would know what a gramophone is. Would be a collector's item if one has one and it is still working. Precious!

  7. Good Morning Linda. Yes, I'm back from Greece.

    Your top videos today are just wonderful. I thought the hummingbird story was fascinating as well as beautiful. And then I watched the pygmy seahorses to be astounded again - truly spectacular.

    The natural world just carrries on the delight and amaze me. Thank you for finding those videos for everyone to enjoy.

  13. Those hummers are so darn cute...and Rowan A is always a riot. I remember when computers first began to take over cash registers. I said they would never work! I didn't want some stupid machine counting up my tab! Boy, was I wrong about that! 😻

  15. Loved the hummingbirds. I learned a lot. We feed all the birds here and hummingbirds are our favorite of all the birds. Too precious.

    I want the yacht, but I don't have 4 million to buy one. It would be very cool to have though.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend Linda. ☺

  27. Linda, We have hummingbirds and they are a marvel. I enjoyed seeing how they coped in a wind tunnel! The Univac commercial was a hoot... These days a smart phone can work faster and provide more data. As for an appropriate saying...that fits at least half of the American political scene at the moment...the bit about doing (or saying) something permanently stupid over a temporary upset seems to fit. Of course, that's only half of the sad story that is the American Presidential contest! As a Canadian friend asked me, "How can a country with 320 million people come up with 2 candidates who are so completely disliked? Life goes on... Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  28. When I was little I wanted to own a seahorse!

  33. Pigmy Seahorse is so cute and it’s interesting to know how they get colors to be well camouflaged. In Japan Seahorse is called “tatsu no otoshigo” literally meaning “dropped child of dragon”. Perhaps named after its mysterious shape which makes you imagine this; when a dragon was flying in the sky, he mistakenly drop his child into the sea, the child is tatsu no otoshigo.

  36. Hello! Thank you for your visit to my blog! I LOVE the hummer video. I sure wish I had tons of them around my feeder. My little guys have all gone south, but I do have visitors that stop by now and then. Glad I still have my feeder out-it's cold here now!
