  1. That clip about the lizard reminds me of this Thai commercial: the tragic love story of two lizards... :D

  14. Awww on the pets of the homeless. I linked this post to Awww Mondays.

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

  15. Hello Linda,
    I can’t believe it but that first video made me cry! It’s just wonderful that someone would spend the time to help that little lizard.
    Have a lovely week.

  16. Great quotes. A smile is the most beautiful thing we can give to others.

  17. Good morning Linda. Enjoyed the very interesting videos and the great quotes. Have a blessed day and a wonderful week. Madeline

  18. Linda. I can't believe that someone performed CPR on a lizard! I would have never thought of it... Nice story about the feeding and care of homeless pets. We have a couple of groups around East Tennessee that do similar work. That expanding house is an amazing concept. I don't know if $144 a square foot without plumbing hook ups is a good price or not. It would depend on the prices where the purchaser lived. The hanky in a bowl of disinfectant rather than the laundry...just didn't catch on. Nowadays its into the wash!

    Struggling a bit with my computer. My hard drive crashed (damaged) and I've lost almost all my documents. I managed to find my photos so I'm not out of business blog wise, but I've had to find 'work arounds' to get the job done. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  19. Dear Linda such a touching video of CPR on the lizard. Also very heartwarming to see the needs of the pets of the homeless being met. Funny video on spreading germs. Loved the thought that every day is special. Thanks for a wonderful post sweet friend. Hugs!

  20. Love this day...there will never be another one like it.
    Wonderful idea. Greetings.

  21. That house, Linda..., whaw... !

  22. Be confident!
    Have a good week

  23. Lots of good quotes here today! Thank you!

  24. That vid of the lady giving the lizard CPR has restored my faith in humans. What a kind and lovely thing to do.Sending best wishes. Xx

  25. Great post!
    Happy new week!


  26. Spreading kindness to the pets of the homeless is touching, I love it.
    Wonderful quotes too Linda, thanks for sharing and have a great week.

  27. people can be so kind!~

  28. I would like to have such quiet place to think and be - with exotic flowers and plants.
    Have a nice day :)

  29. One wonders what the lizard thinks after CPR.

  30. HI Linda, hope you are having a terrific day. ALways fun to see what you are sharing. I am at my original blog today. No fun having technical troubles at the new one.
    Have a terriric week. HUGS

  31. Expanding houses - amazing! There's no limit to the human mind.

  32. Like that idea and message of "Don't spread Germs"

  33. Gosh, Linda, the CPR video was so sweet as was the video about pets of the homeless. And those houses - I think we both should get one!!
    Great quotes, as always!
    Have a wonderful day, my friend!!

  34. Wishing you a great week, Linda! The lizard video was amazing. Gave me goosebumps all over!

  35. Great choices as always☺

  36. the expanding house is terrific Linda !

  37. "The minute you settle for less than you deserve, you get even less than you settled for." Wow!

  38. Hello Linda, glad things are going well for you.
    Lovely video selection and I do like these words 'Everyone smiles in the same language' ... and there are day when the world could do with more smiles!

    Take care and enjoy the rest of the week.

    All the best Jan

  39. I'm glad your upcoming home move has been made possible.
    Blessed be the performer of the CPR on the tiny lizzard! They say a lizzard brings blessings in a house when entering it.
    I think as we grow older, people cease to inspire us; most of them drain us. It's more a matter of age than of choice.

  40. Happy to hear the recent news on your home move, Linda. God bless the kind soul. xx

  41. Thank you Linda!!! I love that little lizard one! Big Hugs!
