2. Gifts for Board Game Lovers
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:12:19
Even in this modern age, board games still hold a huge appeal for all age groups. Yes, I think that the recent advances in video games consoles to introduce motion-sensor controlled games on consoles such as the Wii, or with the Kinect for the Xbox 360, are great and have certainly opened up vide...
3. Dangers of Bad Looking Lenses
Hobbies, Games & Toys - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:14:30
Lenses are the bread and butter of Squidoo. There are approximately 2 million to date, and without them Squidoo wouldn't exist. There are plenty of guides out there which will give you specific tips on how to create good looking lenses, but I want to take a moment to talk about avoiding bad looki...
4. Top 80s Movies
Squidoo Community - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:11:17
And I'm all out of bubblegum!
The Eighties were the decade of big hair and bad clothes, cassette tapes and Rubik's cubes, the A-Team and Airwolf. We had Walkmans, Ataris, BMXs, Soda Streams, BoomBoxes, and only four TV channels. And by the power of Greyskull, we had the POWER.
But most of all, ...
5. Weirdest Things You Can Buy Online
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:12:21
The Internet is a strange place. It can be amusing, strangely addictive, slightly pointless, time-wasting, strangely surreal, full of questions you never asked and just downright bizarre!
Oh and please don't follow any of the above links until you've finished reading this lens. Otherwise, chance...
6. Waking Up Should Be Fun!
Internet - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:14:30
Hands up if you're not a morning person?
If your hand is still hanging limply by your side, you may as well stop here, as you're clearly one of those bizarre creatures who actually looks forward to morning. Otherwise, welcome to the club, friend.

7. 3 Gadgets You'll Wonder How You Coped Without
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:10:22
It's hard to believe that the first bread slicing machine was only produced in 1928. What on earth did we all do before then? Have you ever tried slicing bread yourself? Hacking away with a bread knife to get a far-too-thick, slightly wonky slice, all the time risking life and limb for a simple s...
8. Coolest Squidoo Lenses
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:14:30
One of the many joys of Squidoo is the incredible collection of interesting articles, known as lenses. Squidoo lenses cover a huge range of diverse topics to cover almost every possible interest you could imagine. As well as a few you probably wouldn't! And at the time of writing, there are appro...
9. A Bakers Dozen of Great Kitchen Gifts
Squidoo Community - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:10:22
Picking out the right kitchen gift is whisk-y business. When thyme is short, and you feel like you're playing ketchup, don't get in a pickle - instead let an old sage help you spice things up with a handy guide to the best kitchen gifts out there.
OK, enough of the cheesy jokes, it just isn't pu...
10. A is for Alibi Book Review
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:13:24
A is for Alibi is the first ever book in the now world-famous Alphabet Mysteries series by Sue Grafton. I can still remember when I first read this about five years ago, following a personal recommendation from another book lover that I know.
I love the crime fiction genre. Some of my favourite ...
11. Forrest Gump: Stupid Is As Stupid Does
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:13:24
Let me start by sharing a little on the background on my choice of favourite fictional character - Forrest Gump
When I saw the choice of category for this book club quest, a myriad of characters immediately started to rush through my mind. One of the first names I considered was Gandalf, from Lo...
12. Scribblings of an Insomniac
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:21:17
For as long as I can remember, I've had difficulty with falling asleep. Even as a child, it typically used to take me a couple of hours to drop off. I guess it's because my mind always seems to be in overdrive, and takes a long time to wind down.
I'm not even sure that I'm officially an insomnia...
13. The Perfect Book
Healthy Living - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:11:19
I couldn't honestly tell you how many books I've read in my life, certainly it's in the thousands. I must read two or three per week on average, and am at times one of those irritating people who will likely try to convince you that your favourite movie was better as a book.
And although there a...
14. EPIC The Hobbit Quizzes
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:11:19
Somewhere in the early 1930s, around 80 years ago, Tolkien was working as a professor at Pembroke College, Oxford. His writing career so far really only consisted of academic works and a bit of poetry. On a rather unremarkable day, whilst marking some papers, he had a sudden moment of inspiration...
15. How Not To Create a Squidoo Lens
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:10:22
There are many guides on how to create a Squidoo lens. This is the opposite, providing examples of what not to do.
I wrote this as an accompaniment to my earlier lens on the Dangers of Bad Looking Lenses. Although there are plenty of real-world examples of badly designed pages, I didn't want to ...
16. C is for Corpse Book Review
Squidoo Community - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:13:16
C is for Corpse is the third entry in Sue Grafton's bestselling Alphabet Mystery series of crime fiction books. In my review of 'A is for Alibi', the first novel in the series, I mentioned the disappointingly mundane opening to that particular book. The same could also be said to be true for it's...
17. Top 10 Guilty Pleasure Movies
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:14:30
Guilty pleasures, we all have them. And one of the most common pleasures we feel guilt or embarrassment over is in our choice of favourite movies.

Sure, we all love some great movies as well. It's with good reason that such classics as The...
18. My Favourite Foreign Language Films of the 21st Century
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:11:19
Whilst many bemoan the quality of movies currently being churned out by Hollywood, most of us continue to consume a steady diet of movies that we don't necessarily enjoy that much, often because they are simply the most accessible.
There was a time, I suppose, when this was a valid line of reaso...
19. Taiyo no Uta: A Review
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:12:19
I was inspired to watch this film recently following a recommendation from another Squidoo lensmaster. I'm a long time fan of foreign-language movies, and having read the plot and seen the trailer, I was intrigued enough to want to see it immediately.
Typically, I only write articles on some of ...
20. Top 5 Movies of 2012
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:11:17
Well, another year is nearly gone by, so it's time for me to review this year's offerings on the silver screen.
In an age where it's all about the hype, special effects, big blockbuster action, style over substance, and of course not forgetting 3D! Almost everything is in 3D now. What are the be...
21. Top 5 Albums of 2012
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:13:16
I never quite know how to answer the question "What type of music do you like?" as I've always had such a wide-ranging taste.
Some days I might listen to some R&B, soul or hip-hop, the next it might be rock or indie, another day it could be some reggae, or country, or classical crossover.
22. Ten Great Movies You've Probably Never Seen: Part 1
Music - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:10:22
I've tentatively given the title a suffix of "Part 1", since in the process of writing this I've realised that it has the makings of a series of lenses, as there are just too many movies for one article.

These are the movies that have somehow f...
23. Supporting British Business
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:10:22
Along with around 1.2 million others, I was one of the "unlucky" who failed in their bid to purchase any Olympic tickets for this year's games. So when a friend called up last minute, to announce he had a spare ticket for the Paralympic Opening Ceremony, I naturally leapt at the opportunity.
24. A Forgotten Genius
Business & Work - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 05:12:19
Quick - name one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century.
I'm guessing that 90% of you said Einstein? Maybe a few thought of names such as Schrodinger, Heisenberg, Bohr, Hubble, Planck, or Tesla. Probably, only a few immediately thought of Richard P. Feynman.

25. EPIC Big Bang Theory Quizzes
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 13:22:40
The Big Bang Theory has to honestly be one of the worst TV shows ever made. It fails as comedy, science fiction, and it's hopelessly derivative.
I instantly fell in love with this show from the first time I saw it, and must have seen every episode ten or more times, and hope it w...
26. Best Desktop Toys and Gadgets
Entertainment & Media - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:23:16
As Einstein once said "If a cluttered desk is a sign of a cluttered mind, of what, then, is an empty desk a sign?".
My desk (not to mention shelves, bookcases, and any other spare surface) is covered with a host of random and weird things, which probably tells you all you need to know about my m...
27. Green Eggs And Ham
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:22:17
There are so many great children's book that it's hard to pick just one as a favourite.
However, as a child, I did particularly love anything that Dr Seuss wrote, and his books still hold a certain fascination for me even today.
Written in 1960, it's still one of the top selling English languag...
28. EPIC Lord of the Rings Quizzes
Gift Guide - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:14:29
Long ago, in the deepest darkest depths of the land of Mordor, the Dark Lord gathered his hordes together to forge a quiz of unforetold power. He scoured the lands long and hard, his fiery gaze penetrating the minds of every creature from the four corners of Middle-Earth in his relentless search ...
29. B is for Burglar Book Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:20:20
B is for Burglar is the second book in the Sue Grafton series of Alphabet mysteries, and follows on from her fantastic 1982 debut novel and bestseller, A is for Alibi.
Although just a few months have passed in the fictional world of Santa Teresa where Kinsey Millhone resides, in the real world w...
30. D is for Deadbeat Book Review
Books, Poetry & Writing - Wed, 17 Sep 2014 01:21:16
Kinsey Millhone is back for her fourth outing as the popular private eye, in D is for Deadbeat. Published in 1987, the clock is still running slow in her home town of Santa Teresa, California, though, leaving Kinsey living in 1982 - the same year that we first met her, in the debut Alphabet Myste...
