Mid-Week Food for Thought

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

Stray Dog Begs for Food, Then Brings it to her Puppies

A Medical Miracle Gives New Life to this Amazing Bionic Dog

6 Wartime Foods - British Pathe

Doll's Factory (1968) - British Pathe

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.

Being on vacation means:  drop the past, drop the future, drop the camera for a moment and merge with where you are.  The place you are visiting is inviting you to bask in a field of loving awareness called gratitude.


In order to win, you must be right within.  Nurture yourself, love yourself, believe in yourself, and the rest will follow.


When others try to rain on your dreams, carry an umbrella and dream on!


Tears are not a sign of weakness, but proof that you are human and that you care. - Susan Gale


Ideas are like rabbits.  You get a couple and learn how to handle them, and pretty soon you have a dozen. - John Steinbeck


Dreaming or doing is a choice that will mean the difference between failure or success.  Good morning.


Stop thinking about how much more you can sleep and start thinking about how much more you can do. Good morning.


It's perfectly okay to admit you're not okay.


You have to fight through some bad days to get to the best days of your life.


Your life becomes the story you tell yourself.  Change the story you tell.  Change your life.


Life doesn't require that we be the best, only that we try our best. - H. Jackson Brown Jr.


When we have peace in our hearts and minds, we draw peace into our lives. - Iyanla Vanzant











Thank you all so much for visiting me here!  I always enjoy and appreciate reading your kind thoughts, which you are always welcome to share!

  13. I had to skip over the doll factory. *shudders* That's what comes of hearing the story of the porcelain doll way too young.

    That one about dreaming vs doing... My kids probably get tired of me telling them, "I don't want you to know, I want you to DO."

  15. Tres interesting videos, Linda. And that first poster with the torii...I just learned about the torii from a Japanese friend. It's a gate through which you leave the profane world and enter the sacred.

  17. I had a doll that looked a lot like the ones in the video, but I had to hold her hand to help her walk. She also closed her eyes when she lay down, and I think she said "Mama." Thanks for the memories.

  18. Awww on the dog that got food for her pups. So precious.

    Love the dog with the second chance at a good life.

    Loved the food prep during the war. Wow, most of us don't even think of those kinds of things.

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

  22. The Doll Factory video was amusing; a trip in the way-back machine! My god-mother gave me a soft clown doll, made from socks and fabric pieces, and I still have it; cannot bear to throw it out!

  44. The first video is my very all time favourite, friend L ... saw this many times while visiting Cuba ... whenever I see a mama cat or dog I give her food ... as most of my luggage contains dry dog and cat food ... and when I wander around the country side I always have plenty in my backpack ... and water ... Cuba is surrounded by water, salt water that is ... Much love, my friend, cat.
