Weekend Winter Sunshine

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

35 Year Old who Lives in 1946 (BBC)

Anthony - Peter Uryga and His Motor City Orchestra (1940)

One of the greatest gifts you can give someone is thanking them for being part of your life.


Sometimes it's better to just remain silent and smile.


A relaxing peaceful evening at home is one of life's greatest pleasures.


2017 - The best is yet to come.


People come and go in life, but the right ones will always stay!


My favorite colors of the season...red and white.  :)


It's okay, sometimes we just need a little boost.  :)


The only things you can take with you when you leave this world are the things you've packed inside your heart. - Susan Gale


A person who is nice to you, but rude to the waiter is not a nice person.


Blessed are the weird people:  poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours for they teach us to see the world through different eyes. - Jacob Nordby


Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding. - Albert Einstein


Be tolerant of those who are lost on their path. Ignorance, conceit, anger, jealousy and greed stem from a lost soul.


May the magic of the season fill your heart with joy.


Sprinkle a little love into someone's heart today! Remember, there's no such thing as a small act of kindness.  Every act creates a ripple with no logical end...


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!

  6. Hi Linda, hope this finds you well and happy! I was fascinated to see the video of the man who loves to live in 1946. He has a unique approach to everything. (Good to see he has a modern fridge though!).
    He's quite right, the world does move too fast these days.
    Many thanks for finding all these gems. Cheers now, Sue :D) xx

  13. That Einstein quote particularly speaks to me!

  14. I love all the 40s music. I especially love the big ban era. I listen to that music all the time. I'm not sure I'd want to live in a 40s home, but he's happy and that's what counts.

    Love the 5 fun crafts for kitties.

    Have a fabulous day my friend. ♥♥♥

  15. Linda, Weird but somewhat charming...that man who is living back in 1946. I did like the fact that he cheated a little and had a small fridge. Loved the cat crafts...the 'lap bed' was really creative. Our rescue cat loves his big ball of jute twine and any bags or boxes he can get into.

    As for sayings...without actually saying anything negative to someone...down here in the south, the favorite is "Well bless his/her/their heart". It can be a positive message or the exact opposite depending on how its said. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  16. I love Marmalade and Cole! Their cat dad has some great DIY ideas...especially the cardboard scratcher! Guess it's time I purchase a glue gun...have a great weekend!

  19. Wonderful qoutes and videos, dearest Linda - and I LOVE the ideas for cats and their "owners". The black and red cats in the movie look a bit like my cats Nina (black) and Maxwell (red - but without the white "socks") :-))
    Happy new year, my dear and thank you for your nice wishes!!!
    Hugs, Traude

  21. Hello Linda! Oh that 40s video is neat. Very fun! I adore things like that, the 40s was just such a neat time in many ways. Our country had a healthy fear of God and things were so much more wholesome then.

    I'll have to view the art video of the pastel cat, drawing and such can be very relaxing. We should create for ten minutes a day I recently read. (good idea i think!) : )

    Great quotes, love the artist and writer one. *smile* Yes, people do view deep thinkers as such. Too bad for them! Ha!

    You take care now, hope you are having a wonderful and uplifting New year.

    Blessings!

  27. Love the emphasis on the 40s - great music, good values, era of the Greatest Generation. And loved everything else, of course (especially the lap for the cats). Thanks, Linda!

  30. Such an amazing collection, as always, Linda.
    Two quotes really spoke to me...the "peace" one, and "Lost Soul"...both are so important to us in these troubled times, aren't they?!

    Have a Fabulous New Year, my dear Friend...and Lots of Love & Hugs xoxoxo

  33. Wise words, Linda:Peace cannot be kept by force, it can only be achieved by understanding. I agree!

  34. Hi, Linda! I love your sentiment about "weird people" seeing the world through different eyes! Makes me smile delightedly and gratefully. xo

    ReplyDelete
  35. I like the quote about 2017: the best is yet to come. Is will save that. Happy weekend Linda,

  36. Hi Linda! What a great collection of posters for the new year ... very appropriate. Love the 1946 video. I have good memories of 1946. I was in the 6th grade in Los Angeles and spent most of my spare time playing "cops and robbers" with my friends or riding me bike around the city. I had my own radio and listened mostly to country music. No TV or video games. Every afternoon I delivered the "Hollywood Citizen News" to about 100 subscribers. A year late I was delivering the "Los Angeles Times" which was a much better deal as I didn't have to go door to door collecting my money! The war was over and the future bright.

    Thanks so much for your kind words and I appreciate greatly that you continue to check in on me on L & L Photography!

  37. Los vídeos de la pintura del gato, de los útiles para los gatos y el Luarel y Hardy muy bonitos.
    Algunas citas dicen grandes verdades.

    Saludos.

  38. As ever Linda, great quotes all round. Sometimes it's better to just remain silent and smile though is one that sticks in my mind. I wish I could always remember that, sometimes I just open my mouth when I know I should keep it shut and smile!!!
    Have a great Sunday and keep warm, Diane

  39. LOL!!! Laurel and Hardy! So funny. And I love receiving Christmas cards, too bad they are going out of style.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thank you Linda! Such a great selection today! My favorite is the "Be Tolerant.." quote, me need much more of that these days... Enjoy the new week ahead! Diane

  41. Hello Linda, It's been another long time since I've visited. I hope 2017 will be a year of more writing and blog reading for me because I do miss it!
    Your videos are quirky and funny. The first one - strangely adorable. And good sentiments from all the quotes. I actually saved one into my computer's library.
    Happy New Year!

    ReplyDelete
  42. I couldn't agree more - gratefulness - thanking someone for being part of your life - is so important in being happy.

    ReplyDelete
  43. The video of projects for cats was really interesting. I'm amazed at the creativity of some people.

  44. Good evening dear Linda,
    It has been much too long since I have visited. Thank you for coming over to visit and leaving such a kind note.
    I would also like to thank you for all your beautiful and uplifting post this past year. Your blog is such a peaceful place to visit. I always come away with a smile.
    Happy New Year

  45. I was expecting the cat crafts to use cat fur! 😂

    ReplyDelete
  46. I'm not sure what happened to my original comment...Loved the cat vid and the one of the guy re-creating 1940's life. I wonder if he appreciate the irony of being on youtube given his take on technology...I've seen a woman do the same as him, also from England...they should meet...Enjoy your Sunday.

  57. The "Be tolerant" quote is so true!

    ReplyDelete
  58. The first video of the guy living in the 1940s style reminds me strongly of the old Sparks song with its clever lyrics and funny chorus. "It ain't 1918 for us or for you... if we can't enjoy it then neither should you."

    ReplyDelete
  59. As always a great variety of subjects.
    Have a great week!

    ReplyDelete
  60. Another of your fun post packed with great quotes and interesting videos. I really enjoyed the first one about the fellow living as if in the 1940s. I saw one about a lady living as if still in the 1930s - eccentric people!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Hi Linda! Happy New Year my friend!
    I haven't seen any Laurel and Hardy in so long, it was fun to see the clip here. (What awful Christmas cards they were!)
    I agree that 2017 will be the best yet, so let's ride through it with joy!
    Blessings,
    Ceil

  62. I'm thinking that 2017 is going to be a good year, dear Linda! I'm quite happy to live in 2017 and not in 1946, thank you! I was fascinated by the tree stump scratcher and other crafts for kitties. If I could hang the scratcher on the wall it might help when I get a pesky itch between my shoulders. Anyone who is unkind to a waiter is not someone I want to be around! Thanks for sharing these things today!
