There are some writers here that seem to glorify in making somewhat controversial posts which often result in obnoxious replies that border on direct attacks.It seems to me that these prolific posters do not need to be replied to- so what I am advocating is that all those hubbers who are of more...
I know its all doom and gloom with adsense at the moment, but I have some good news. They are going to put some money into my account as I have hit payout! I missed it by 2p (3c,) the previous month which was somewhat frustrating. It has taken 12 months to reach the target and somehow I...

A few months ago I wrote a hub about some pottery i collected. It was all hand painted by an english pottery painter but I knew little about him.

Family are terribly excited, not only do we have Sven Goran Ericsson but now the rumour is that we might have Beckham- not sure our shops are up to Posh's taste but we have good access to London.Suggesting this is a pipe dream but do others agree.
We in the UK have had a rather massive public expenditure freeze. Dave (our pm) thinks we should become a big society - working not claiming and helping each other.
