Melodious Monday

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

Stranger on the Shore - Acker Bilk

Frigidaire Automatic Spray Tube Dishwasher TV Commercial - 1956

Snow Dance - Preschool Worship Song  :)

Cool Cat Sings on Catio - Furball Babies  :)

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 amount of anxiety can change the future.  No amount of regret can change the past.


Your thoughts, beliefs and attitude all determine your direction.


Snowblowing - Level:  Canadian  :)


Be happy with nothing and you will be happy with everything.


Never assume that loud is strong and quiet is weak.


You don't lose friends, because real friends can never be lost.  You lose people masquerading as friends, and you're better for it. - Mandy Hale


"Go outside, make a left, head up the hill, look around, stand up for fairness and justice and be kind. - Guiding Light  :)


In the depth of winter I finally learned that there was in me an invincible summer. - Albert Camus


Failure is not the opposite of success.  It is part of success.


Dear person reading this, I hope your day has been going well, if not, I hope it gets better.  You are an amazing person who will inspire others to do great things so keep up the hard work and never give up.


When you are tired of the struggle and tired of the pain...you must not give up.  Keep walking forward. There is beauty on the other side of this storm, too. You know that storms do not last forever.  Hang on...your strength will pull you through.


Sometimes you just have to hang on and trust that life's storms are carrying you to better pathways.


Everything that irritates us about others can lead to an understanding of ourselves. - Carl Jung


Life is available only in the present moment. - Thich Nhat Hanh



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! I watched the dishwasher ad, and I don't know why I'm so drawn to the older videos. I think I just enjoy the nostalgia of it all. I don't know what I'd do without my dishwasher, especially when the children were young. It was a real lifesaver.
    I liked the image of failure not being the opposite of success. I have read other quotes like that, and I'd have to agree. So many inventors went through years of 'failure' before finding something wonderful.
    Happy Monday!

  14. Good morning, Linda. Love the cat singing! And the first poster really spoke to me - I'm going to pass that one along. Thanks so much for all the work you do putting these posts together. I know it's not easy but I'm sure you make the days better for many people. It's always good to laugh, too, that's why I loved the Canadian snow blower! :)

  16. Quote from the 1st image is so true yet it's hard not to have anxiety or regret. Something I need to work on!

  17. Love the old commercials. That was state of the art stuff back then and only the well to do could afford them.

    Love the Catio cats. I linked you to Awww Mondays.

    Have a fabulous day, Linda. Big hug. ♥♥♥

  25. Hello Linda!

    Oh my goodness, that music instrumental is beautiful, it is so relaxing to listen to! Very nice. And I loved the adorable dishwasher ad, it is so sweet, those little children at a normal birthday party with the homemade cake. It reminds me of when I was little and some of the pics of my husband back then with their suits on. Things sure were nice then, people tend to complicate things now. I noticed the pin the tail on the donkey game too, just a totally different atmosphere, much more wholesome I think. : ) Loved it! I always tried to keep things much like that for our girls when we did do a party. I enjoyed attending!

    You take care now Linda! Blessings!

  30. I'm not a fan of the song in the first video, but boy those photos are beautiful!

  31. The catio was cute and very creative. I liked the thought that anxiety can't change the outcome. I've been feeling a little anxious about some upcoming dental work. I need to remind myself of that thought. I also liked the "Be happy with nothing and you'll be happy with everything" quote. Great truth there.

  32. I am eternally grateful to the inventor of the dishwasher.

    Linda, we are getting so much snow here! It just keeps snowing and snowing. I am trying to send it back to whence it came. I'm tired of it. ❄️

  33. Oooooo...Acker Bilk, Stranger on the shore, so romantic. I danced to that when I was younger.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Linda, The kids here in East Tennessee would like that snow dance performed for them! We've only had 2.5 inches of snow this year to date... Mostly highs in the 50's and 60's Fahrenheit for the next week at least. That Catio video shows me that some people will do more for their cat than even my wife will do for ours! Toys, a plethora of official beds, his own room at night, bottled water while we drink tap water, etc. One of the little moralities caught my attention. Anxiety channelled into action based on future probabilities can change the outcome. On the other hand, I agree that no amount of regret can change the past... Move on! Take Care, Big Daddy Dave
