What is a Magnificient Hub!

Hard Work and all Heart

I have noticed only one thing in common with all the hubs I have read so far.

That  everyone who has made a hub has put time and effort and feelings in there work.

Who would waste there time and energy to do something they didn't believe in.

Promises of an income can be made with lots of time and effort.That is the dangling carrot in front of me that I keep going for and can taste it but still just out of my reach.

Friends that pop up , give a whole new meaning to pop ups in the computer world.It is not annoying and bad it is just the opposite exciting and good.

They just want to see your work and tell you how they feel.

That is extraordinary in my book.That is the book I have not written yet but still make promises to myself and the hub pages I will do really soon.

I have to keep using the dictionary to look up words I haven't used in 20 years.I am old school. Something about looking up a word and actually finding it.It still gives me a thrill knowing that I was right with my spelling which does happen, not to often though.More often than not I was wrong, but now I can make it write(right) a little pun.I here that most people on the computer use spell check.I am proud to say I haven't used it yet.One reason I didn't know it exsisted.I am still not computer savy.

I think out my thoughts and I can keep trying to improve and make myself better. I still have to check with every teacher I ever had in all my years of school to see if I am doing the right thing.So the verdict is still out on that one.

I feel great writing.This is where I want to be no matter if you like what I write or not.Secretly I hope you like it.Ooops my secret is out.Lesson learned once you type something it is out there for the world to see.So I have to write slowly and thats not me.I tell it the way I feel and put my words on the line line by line.

I know where I was before the hub pages.With notebooks of my writings and scrap pieces of paper that I thought contained my lifes work.Waiting to be discovered.More often than not I put them in a cardboard box down the cellar. Until the cellar floods unexpectedly and all my dreams are washed away.It does happen believe me.You can not repeat or replace the things you have written so long ago.That is life.Thanks for modern technology!I can write till my heart content.It is saved and no paper.Even published how can that be.FOR FREE.Wait nothing in life is free?EXCEPT THE HUB PAGES!

Best of all.I can go let the cat out.Get a bowl of cereal for breakfast.Turn on the radio while still in my pajamas.Write for awhile and then go back to bed when I am tired.I can't forget throw in a load of laundry when my wife asks did you start the laundry yet.Then go to work and wonder where did my day go.

I can also go back to the years of my youth and throw a record on the record player for those who still remember.There is something about the static noise from the many scratches on them that gives me a chill up and down my spine.Then pretend they are singing my song I wrote on the hub pages.

One of those days that you feel not yourself.A little down in out.Maybe a touch of a cold ,no not that.I tend to talk to myself more than ever before but this time someone can listen.It doesn't mean they will.But someday you wake up and check your hubs and surprise, someone actually read what you wrote months ago.They liked it.They related to what you said.They wrote a hub on the same thing.You become instant friends.That is as good as it gets.

Competition is all around you.Don't get nervous.When you log on day after day and see how many people post daily hubs. You will soon say good for you fellow hubbers and they will soon do the same for you too.I do what I can and bless those with so much more time.

MY DEEPEST THANKS TO THOSE WHO MADE THE HUB PAGES AND MADE MY DREAMS POSSIBLE!I HAVE A BOSS THAT I NEVER SEE.THEY PUSH ME TO EXCEL AND PROMISE ME A DESCENT PAY FOR MY WORK AND EFFORT.I JUST HAVE TO DO WHAT I DO BEST WRITE,WRITE AND WRITE SOME MORE.THEY CORRECT MY MISTAKES.THEY COMMENT WHEN I NEED HELP.THEY KEEP TRACK OF ALL MY PROGRESS.ALL FOR FREE.I THINK I SHOULD OF BEEN FIRED MONTHS AGO.MAYBE THEY SEE SOMETHING IN ME I DON'T SEE.GREAT POTENTIAL!

I think we constantly give each other positive energy.I honestly feel that we all seek the same goals in life just we have different ways of achieving them. I have to thank you for reading hubs and I will be back to read more of yours.


poetlorraine 6 years ago

it is always a pleasure to read your hubs, i know you are very busy but i would appreciate more, as i keep going back to read the same ones over and over again. You are a kind person a good friend, and i also like your avatar. Can you run to the shop and get me some coffee son.

Hello bright eyes you always put a smile in my thoughts.I am not sure how you do it.But in time I will figure it out.How are you?


poetlorraine 6 years ago

i just came back to this, and could not stop laughing. Wow the fullness of time makes things seem and read so different. I really do love you and i do not say that to many wow.... love that little squirrel up there. I have grown so much, am laughing, you gave me food at the proper time. Do you understand that saying, it is out of the bible.


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

I think so.You appreciate and understand that are friendship is something wonderful.I also seen that you did not approve of my visiting another hub.You took the time to give me your honest opinion which I love so much.I think life is about learning and I am always curious about life.I wonder what gives people the energy to love?Why people fight when they could make love.I guess I just want to be loved and love others.I think life is that simple.


poetlorraine 6 years ago

visit whatever hub you like it is nothing to do with me, just did not seem to go with your image. Please stop making me laugh

Please explain?Describe my image?What did you think of her hub?


poetlorraine 6 years ago

i think her hub was o.k. but not fitting for hub pages, you hav a lovely image of a caring person,but i have looked at other hubs you have gone on before, and it doesn't add up dream on as i read would not be on them...... does that make sense


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

Yes maybe I dreamed a little to much.Maybe I just like to see who else loves life.Anyway I appreciate your thoughtfulness.This is a wonderful world that we live in isn't it?Sons are known to get into trouble from time to time.


poetlorraine 6 years ago

ha ha and why not, let's not scold

I am happy that you are understanding and fun.I can learn one more thing today than yesterday.One mans treasure is another persons trash.....


poetlorraine 6 years ago

yeah we are all so different, let's embrace our differences and disagree but not be disagreeable.


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

poetlorraine If I spend time with negative thoughts it just mentally and physically wipes me out.I am so focused on the good and getting things done.I have things that happen to me that were not pleasant and should of been different.I feel instead of dwelling on the person who made the problem and my emotions I feel towards that person.I step away and look for a solution that will make me happier again.It works and I keep redirecting my thoughts to positive ones.I hope you also will try it and let me know how it works for you.

It's so nice to be able to write like this on hub pages. An added bonus is meeting so many people - all across the world. I enjoy this solo pleasure and the flexibility that writing allows - but I also need to be able to communicate with other human types as well.

I'm glad you are enjoying hub pages! And that dangling carrot is pretty sweet when it is deposited into your bank account!

BkCreative I see you have experienced the benefits of good hubs.Could you explain how much you have been able to make so far?What hubs have you found the most informative to help you on your quest for the dangling carrot.

Really good hub, thoughtfully written. I also have to resort to the dictionary sometimes as it's many years since I left school! The more we write, the better it becomes & it generates more ideas. Keep up the good work!

Wilbury steve thanks for the advice and support.Something about looking up words and finding them a challange.Sometimes I amaze myself.How many years out of school for you?It has been 27 years since high school for me.

poetlorraine 6 years ago

really, how rude, Dream On ..... you are not always active on hub pages, and i get roped in, and distracted by other poets and things, but honestly, i will never forget you, you will always be up there with the best of them. You will be named in my divorce, for not letting me get on with my housework, you and lots of others like you.....

miss take I have broad shoulders and I can take it on the chin.I know my writing needs work.Maybe she thought I couldn't take the pain of seeing my work ripped into little pieces.You also are welcome to help me in any way possible.I good man has to know when he is beaten and has to learn to swollow his pride and say tomorrow will be another day.

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

Hard to believe it, but I left school in june 1975 when The best of The stylistics was the no.1 album in the uk. 12 days later on the 28th, wings 'venus & mars' took over the top spot. Happy days!

What is your favorite group of today?For me I really have to think back to 1983.Who did you like back then?


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

I don't have a particular favorite from any of today's bands, but back in the mid to late 70s I liked The Eagles, ELO & Thin Lizzy, Barclay james Harvest among many, & in the 80s The Police

I still have many records.I just can't part with them.Have you gone to all cd's.


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

I do have a lot of cds, but I still have all my vinyl singles, & several albums. I also keep boxes of vinyl albums that I sell as well!


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

Wilbury steve Have you copied your vinyls directly to cd's.Keeping the actual sound of any scratches the records might have.I think that is some of the beauty.Always nice to see your interest and love of music.


Miss Take 6 years ago

just been reading the comments and hub...... dream on you have an answer for everything.

Miss Take I just love living my life happy and the only way I know how to is by exploring my options and feelings constantly.


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

some of my albums I have converted to cd, but I cheated if they needed cleaning up! I mainly buy cds to listen to,only have a few downloads. In the main I'd rather have all the packaging to enjoy. In the early days of cd that wasn't so hot.When I left school my first job was in a basement record department & you could smell the new albums as you walked down the stairs! I especially remember pink Floyd's 'wish you were here' because the black shrink wrap had a particular smell! keep on rockin' Dream on!

Wilbury Steve When I was young my brother and I shared the same room.He was the older brother and he had his records first.I might scratch them and ruin them so I couldn't use them.It wasn't till years later I got my own records and played the songs he use to listen too.Strawberry fields for ever,was one of my brothers favorites.I use to buy them at flea markets and learned as I went.I still love playing records today.Somehow it brings back memories of being young again.Love your passion for music!


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

Music has that wonderful ability to take us back to another time & place & to remember what we were doing at the time. I can still see people dancing at parties if I think about certain records! Talking of flea markets, I picked up copies of strawberry fields & Hello Goodbye on the orange/yellow capitol label back in the late seventies.just checked & they're up in my loft!


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

Wilbury steve Every time you expand my thinking and give me new thoughts about music.How big is your collection of music?What is the most valuable record you own or sold.I find music so fascinating.I think the funniest thing I have learned from music is that people hear a song.Sing it for years and find out the words are different than they thought.It bothered me that I thought I have to know the exact words they are saying.But as the years passed.I became a little more relaxed and said does it really matter.I can make or take anything I want out of any song and enjoy it my way.Not only the way the singer intended.(lol)


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

My collection is constantly changing as I buy & sell, but I have about 200cds,500 vinyl albums, 300 singles, plus music recorded to computer. How about you? I recently sold Kingdom come's 'Galactic zoo Dossier' for £50.00, & my Beatles white album mono edition is currently for sale on e bay.

Talking of misheard lyrics, as a boy I thought The Beatles were singing 'the little children have a hymn behind his back' in penny Lane! lol


DREAM ON profile image

DREAM ON 6 years ago Author

Wilbury steve Is it true sometimes the jacket of a record could be worth more than just the records?I am amazed how records still sell everywhere today.I have nothing of any value just fun collecting little of all types of music from rock , jazz to pop to ballads to stand up comics like Bill Cosby live..If a record warps is it worthless?I have had some records that I didn't store properly and play o.k. but it is funny watching them go round and round.They are warped big time.


wilbury steve profile image

wilbury steve 6 years ago from Great Wakering, England

Some covers can attract more value eg David bowie's 'man who sold the world ' lp with the cover that features him in the dress, & of course The Beatles' butcher cover.

Back in the 70s RCA were making their vinyl from 'dynaflex' which withstood bending back in shape. You could try leaving the warped record in it's cover & place a heavy weight on the offending area for a day or two to improve it.

sometimes in the shop we would hold a record up to the strip light to try & get it back in shape, or out of shape if we had overstocks of it! Carry on enjoying your collection Dream on!
