Mid-Week Treats

Hello everyone!  A very warm welcome to you all! The videos I have chosen for this post are:

Spreading Christmas Cheer through New Zealand Skies

Christmas Cheer - Ray Campi

Cats in Art Part 1 (Izabela Zalas)

Cats in Art Part 2 (Izabela Zalas)

Victor Borge - The History of Piano

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.

Sometimes the simplest gestures, smallest compliments or just knowing that someone is thinking about you can be enough to make you smile for the rest of the day.


One day I would like to turn on the news and hear: "There is peace on earth."


My skin is so thin that the innocent words of others burn holes right through me.


Some scars don't hurt.  Some scars are numb.  Some scars rid you of the capacity to feel anything ever again. - Joyce Rachelle


Being part of an agenda beyond ourselves liberates us to complement each other rather than compete with each other. - Joseph Stowell


What we call the secret of happiness is no more than our willingness to choose life. - Leo Buscaglia


Please don't say anything mean or offensive to someone online.  Remember, there's a real person at the keyboard, and you have no idea what kind of day they have had or what they are going through.


Let today be the day you stop harming yourself with thoughts about the past.  You can't undo past mistakes.  Look around - not backwards.  Look around and you will see there's lots of opportunities for new choices.  You're still here.  Stronger and wiser.  You made it through.


Having a soft heart in a challenging world is courage, not weakness.


Want to change your life?  Change your vocabulary. Start talking positively, and your life will positively change.










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. This post is a great way to start a Wednesday morning! New Zealand Air is a blessing; especially when most airlines are trying to make flying more difficult. Love Mr. Camp's music and Mr. Borge has always been a favorite of mine which his sly humor and wonderful music. The cat art videos, as you can imagine, made my day, as well as the very fine posters. Thanks much, Linda.

  21. This is a good blog post! One of your quotes really touched me alot - "Some scars don't hurt. Some scars are numb. Some scars rid you of the capacity to feel anything ever again." by Joyce Rachelle.

    It was like this for me with a past relationship. I was hurt and since then I have been unable to really feel anything for anyone else. Or maybe it just takes a special type of person for me to start feeling again. I guess I will find out in the future. Thanks again.

    Have a great rest of the week!

  27. Linda, We are cat people so anything cat related is great! They are always interesting and usually unpredictable. As for Victor Borge, we used to watch him all the time. Unfortunately no one like him with is skits exist today.

    Air New Zealand... One of the best airlines we've ever flown on. Terrific staff and terrific service! We flew round trip from Auckland to Christchurch. Not a surprise that they would stage special Christmas flights... Great presents, especially those round trip tickets! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
