HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014! ~ MAGNIFICENT DISPLAYS!

FIREWORKS1

The following video from Taipei, Taiwan, ’2014 Taipei Midnight Fireworks’ is a memorable event with a fireworks display, music and dancing featuring many of Taipei’s youth singing. The smiling faces of these children and their delightful joy is contagious.  I find the fireworks shooting from and spiraling out and up from skyscrapers really impressive! (Must find out how they accomplish that.)

New Years Midnight Fireworks Dubai, Burj Khalifa, Full Show HD ~ stunning effects – again using the skyscrapers ~ accompanied by a symphony orchestra.

The following video is a must to help ring in the New Year with Abba’s classic “Happy New Year”!

Happy New Year!
Best wishes for health, happiness and prosperity in

NEWYEAR

ATTR.ACTION ~ FABULOUS BGT SEMI-FINALISTS

ATTRACTION SEMI FINALS

See my blog, “ATTR.ACTION” ~ STUNNING PERFORMANCE! ~ BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT”,  published May 30th, for the first Attr.action performance. 
For their Britain’s Got Talent 2013 semi-final performance, Attr.action depicted a mother giving birth to her son, the son going off to college, getting married, and eventually the mother dies in her son’s arms. At the end, the son’s wife reveals that she is pregnant. The story was based on Zoltán Szűcs’ life story, who dedicated the performance to his late mother

Attr.action’s semi-final routine – including representations of a hospital scene, a safari and a power ballad - reduced the BGT judges to tears once again.

Here are just a few of the judges comments ~
“I know the show is Britain’s Got Talent and you’re not from Britain, but I’m honoured you chose the show to showcase your talent.”

“It’s remarkable how something simple and beautiful can strike at your heart.”
“It’s quite simply the most beautiful thing we’ve ever seen.”


Incredible talent and a very moving story.  I hope you enjoy both performances as much as I did - please share.  Thanks!

This performance by Attr.action leaves Amanda speechless with the exceptional dramatics and outstanding expertise of their art.

There won’t be a dry eye in your house after watching shadow theatre company Attr.action perform - Amanda certainly welled up! Stunning magical dramatics that put our hand shadow of a bird to shame. Simon Cowell sums it all up by saying, “We’ve just never seen anything like this before!”

The Queen Sequence – Opening Ceremony – London 2012 Olympic Games ~ a very humourous video with Daniel Craig, AKA James Bond, accompanying Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth to the Opening Ceremony of the Games in a most unusual fashion!

On July 27th, 2012, Daniel appeared alongside the Queen in a short film titled Happy and Glorious. Directed by Danny Boyle, the film was the highlight of the Olympic opening ceremony. It was actually the Queen’s first ever acting role, a joint celebration of 007′s 50th anniversary in film, and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.

T.G.I.F. ~ ANOTHER SUPERB INSPIRATIONAL MOVIE

DANCE IN THE RAIN

Sit back, relax and turn up your speakers for this inspirational movie by Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher from Simple Truths, “Learning to Dance in the Rain”. The words, the photographs and the music are beautiful!  Enjoy!

Learning to Dance in the Rain by Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher can change your attitude about facing adversity. It’s not the adversity, but how we react to it that determines the joy and happiness in our lives. Learning to Dance in the Rain shows us that while we all face challenges, embracing the power of gratitude can change your life forever. During tough times, do we spend too much time feeling sorry for ourselves, or can we, with gratitude…learn how to dance in the rain?

“Learning to Dance in the Rain.”
“Life is not about waiting
for the storm to pass…
It’s about learning to
dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene


It almost sounds too simple to feel important, but understanding the power of gratitude can change your life forever. Sarah Breathnach said it best… “When we choose not to focus on what is missing from our lives but are grateful for the abundance that’s present…we experience heaven on earth.”

VIDEO LINK, “LEARNING TO DANCE IN THE RAIN” BELOW ~

We all face adversity in life, it’s how you react to it that determines your joy in life. An inspiring book to guide you through life’s rough patches…Truly understanding the power of gratitude can change your life forever.

We encourage you to visit Simple Truths web site for many more inspirational books and videos.  I recently purchased 2 books for my family – books arrived in just a few days and were extremely well packaged. Included with the purchase were videos and lovely gift cards decorated with coordinating graphics.

Another inspiring video to share with your families, friends and co-workers.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
