Either I will find a way, or I will make one. - Philip Sidney


Share your smile with the world.  It's a symbol of friendship and peace. - Christie Brinkley


You keep a lot to yourself because it's difficult to find people who understand.


Stop trying to fill the emptiness inside you with food.


It's going to be hard.  But hard is not impossible.


Get ready to pick out a new pair of sunglasses, because the light at the end of your tunnel is getting brighter and brighter.  :)


When you get something you've really wanted, stop to appreciate it.  Don't always be seeking something better.


Being happy doesn't mean that everything is perfect. It means you've decided to look beyond the imperfections.


I'm an old man and have known a great many troubles, but most of them have never happened. - Mark Twain


It's okay if you don't like me.  Not everyone has good taste.  :)

I don't care what people say about me, I know who I am and I don't have to prove anything to anyone.


When you find peace within yourself, you become the kind of person who can live at peace with others. - Peace Pilgrim


My wish for you is that you continue.  Continue to be who and how you are, to astonish a mean world with your acts of kindness. - Maya Angelou

  4. Loved your first clip. Pit Buls get a bad reputation often. But they are cute and lovable as well.

  15. Pit Bulls can be trained to be aggressive or to be loving. As with many other dogs.

    Love the pet rescue facility. Giving a second chance to these wonderful pets is a great thing to do.

    Have a fabulous day, Linda. ☺

  21. The Irish Island was quite formidable as well as enchanting, certainly a lot of history.

  22. Pitbulls don't have a very good reputation. I've never owned one but it seems they can become very aggressive for no reason at all. One killed a small child. But then I've heard of people who think they are the greatest. My choice or dog would be a Golden Retriever...they truly are gentle and loving and I've never heard of them attacking anyone. :)

  24. "Share your smile with the world. It's a symbol of friendship and peace" me plaît beaucoup Linda

  25. I have some mistrust of pit bulls, but I'm sure their temperament is largely related to the way they are socialized and treated.

  26. Las razas de perro peligrosas en muchas ocasiones son los propietarios quienes las hacen mas peligrosas.
    Los animales que han sido abandonados una vez que ven que les proporcionas cariño son muy agradecidos.

    Saludos.

  30. Either I will find a way, or I will make one. - Philip Sidney <-- This is pretty good advice, Linda. It's telling me not to find excuses. ^.^

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay. I think I can use the one about good taste:))

    ReplyDelete
  32. I liked the video Unique Orca Encounter in the Sea of Cortez. It's amasing I thought orca is very dangerous animal.
    Thanks for sharing, Linda.

    ReplyDelete
  33. aw, thanks once more Linda - I really enjoyed the videos and there's always something to take from the quotations.
    All the very best :D)

    ReplyDelete
  34. Thank you, Linda, for the fantastic lifter-uppers! Each one is a stepping stone to the other, and overlaps into a circle. I was especially surprised by the orca video! They were braver than I! It goes to show that all creatures are curious and want to be more than we assume we know about them. xx

  35. Bonjour Linda,
    je suis sensible à la cause animale et j'apprécie tes vidéos.
    Belle journée. Bises de haute Provence

  36. "It's okay if you don't like me. Not everyone has good taste." LOL!!! I like that!!! :D

  37. Wow, I'm in love with these cute videos, dear! xoxo

  38. Hello Linda! Oh the pitbull video is so adorable, they truly are big babies. Ours was my loyal companion and very, very sensitive. The only time ours was aggressive was when one of the other dogs would want to 'share' food. Ha ha! But that goes for many breeds. I think every dog no matter what breed needs to be watched closely for character issues. I will enjoy watching the rest of the videos too!

    The quotes are great and very encouraging, the one about the sunglasses is a good one for me today! : ) ..Of course they are all good!

    I hope you are feeling better friend, I still think about your grueling day at the hospital, oh that ought not be!

    You take care of yourself, and have a good day, may we always purpose to have a good day. Blessings and a hug!

  39. I enjoyed that encounter with the killer whale Linda. I'm afraid I would trust that more than a pit bull.

    ReplyDelete
  40. These videos were wonderful Linda!!! Thank you for sharing!!!! Hope you're well, my friend!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Pitbulls are lovely dogs when treated right. A lot of smaller dogs are a lot more aggressive they just don't have the bad rep :( I have a staffordshire bull terrier and he's the softest thing ever.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Awesome video of the Whale and what a lovely island. It looks like a place I would love to walk and travel. Hope you are having a good day friend. Hugs!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Loved each and every video. The one on the pitt bulls I have always thought it was the human who owned them that caused the problems, not all the time I know but I have always heard they are a very loving and loyal dog, and a great protector for children. The orca video was amazing. Always love those wise words. Thanks again Linda and have a great day :)

  44. Stunning videos Linda, I remember the Irish island being used in Star Wars.
    Take care, Gordeon.

  45. Who would have thought? A pitbull. :-)

  46. The days and weeks go by so quickly - great choice of videos here.

    I send my good wishes and hope the rest of your week goes well.

    All the best Jan

    ReplyDelete
  47. I've heard a lot of the aggressiveness that pitbulls are known for is instilled by owners.

    ReplyDelete
  48. A perfect, beautiful post! Thank you Linda! Big Hugs!

  49. Hi, Linda! I was very taken by the video on Skellig Michael. I don't think I've ever heard of it before, but it is a very compelling place. I have no idea how people managed to live there, even if they were monks. Terry has been to the spot where the ferry leaves for the island. I'd have been on that ferry ~ LOL! Happy rest of the evening to you!
