This is a young gentleman in a certain amount of trouble. He's been arrested for attempted murder, where the alleged victims are a policeman and a police support officer. And assault occasioning grevious bodily harm...
Conspiracy theorists and religious fanatics seem to me to have much in common. They look for one grand theory to explain everything, so they don't have to deal with the fact that life is chaotic and often senseless....
My son, who is 5, came home from school with a letter from a casting director, asking that he audition for a part in a film. It's a proper agency, the school knows the woman well, and it's a sequel to a film that did...
My godfather died last Friday, aged only 61, and I'm trying to write a letter to my godmother. Such a bloody awful thing to try to write, to convey real love and sympathy without sounding trite or patronising.
I'm lucky - having a good month on Amazon so far (13 items ordered, and a near 10% conversion rate).Some of the items are directly linked to on my hub, and others, while not directly linked, clearly strongly...

They are all coming into season here in England, and Isaac and I picked 12lb of blackberries, 8lb of bullaces, and 12lb of sloes over the weekend. We had blackberry and apple crumble today, and both my mother and I are...
well, we actually got back on Monday night, but I've been busy since then, keeping the washing machine in business, catching up at work, etc. We're now down at my parents' house for the weekend, so Isaac can pick apples...
OH (whose patience for shopping exceeds mine by a long way) and I went shopping this afternoon for a dress to wear in the evenings on holiday - dinner is quite dressy. The dress we found is gorgeous, if rather pricey....
OH and I are going to do it. I think I'm certifiably insane!
I don't know if it's a bank holiday weekend in the rest of the world, but it is here in the UK.OH, Isaac and I have been spending the weekend at my parents' house in Kent, and are having a great time. It's been sunny...
It really does take off. I got my first adsense payout at the end of June, and I've just hit the £60 mark for July, so another payout this month.That's not all hubs, because I set up my own blog a month ago, but hubs...

My website appears to have been kidnapped. When I type in my web address (www.webhistoryofengland.com) all my content has isappeared, and some totally random ebook rubbish is there instead. I can't log in, and...
OH, Isaac, me, and my mother, staying in Jerusalem. Have fun hubbing!
My new blog was pagerank 0 yesterday, and my firefox add-on is telling me it's PR 4 today. How does it vary so fast? Could it just be a mistake?
After a surge in earnings in the last couple of months, I'm over hte payment threshold for Google. Actually, it's still only £58.28 from hubs (£60 payout) but there's a tenner from my new blog, too.
"A senior US official has told the BBC Washington decided not to tell London ahead of time about a deal to resettle four Guantanamo detainees in Bermuda.A diplomatic row blew up over Bermuda's decision to accept...
Looking at my adsense today, for the first time in a week or so, I notice that although my overall CTR and CPM are nothing to get too excited about, I have had 6 clicks today on one hub, out of 14 page views. This tends...
Here dead we lieBecause we did not chooseTo live and shame the landFrom which we sprung.Life, to be sure,Is nothing much to lose,But young men think it is,And we were young. -- A. E. Housman
Roma, due a week ago, had a gorgeous, leggy foal this morning. The baby is already standing, suckling well, and the vet reckons is in great health. Olivia acted as midwife (!) and mother and baby both seem very happy (-:
I think that hubpages needs to stop suggesting that people use social bookmarking sites to promote their hubs.Many of the good ones just won't accept hubs any more, for example:1. Digg. Will accept hubs, won't allow...
For my birthday treat, OH, Isaac and I are going on a spa break, and a visit to Legoland thrown in. Have fun, peeps!
Sorry to be thick, but do the tags influence how google et al index it, or is it only an internal hubpages thing?
I have registered my new domain. I'm a competant computer user, but no computer expert.I've added Wordpress. Can anyone suggest a good beginner's guide to making the most of it?

What determines how much you get per click in Adsense? Is it the topic, or some weird witchy-brew no-one really understands?I ask because 2 things have confused me, looking just now at my account, for the first time in...

I'm posting this here as I've proved incapable of explaining it without a picture!
Not exactly important or exciting, mind you (-:I'd take a screenshot to prove it, if only I knew how....
I find I either get almost no traffic from SU, or hundreds of impressions in a day. Anyone know why it works this way?
Hubpages seems to have been blocked there as a spam site - anyone know why?I tried adding a bookmark, and it will only let me save it as private, not public.
I hadn't checked for a while, but have just done so, and found I'm earning more from Kontera than from Adsense. Is this usual?
I'd be grateful for some feedback. And I don't mind criticism, please feel free.http://hubpages.com/hub/The-sinking-of- … vors-story
If you get a backlink to a hubpage from another site, how long is it before google et al pick up on it?
In the "hub metrics" part of the statistics on my hubs (which I've only just paid any attention to) I note it says, "Incoming Links: ∗∗∗"What does this mean?
I've read over and over the "get quality backlinks with Qassia" line.Is it true? Do links from this site help?How do you do it? I know you write the "intel", but where does the backlink link to? Your...
It's snowing fit to burst in central London - while it does snow a few times each winter, because of the heat-island generated by a big city, we don't tend to get as much as the rest of the country.But it's already at...
Some people seem to take the fan button a bit toooooo seriously - I've noticed a couple of times today, people becoming "fans" of hubbers who have precisely no hubs!
is there a lot of really dire "poetry" posted as hubs?
The British Humanist Association has started adverts on buses in several different UK towns and cities with a slogan, ""There's probably no God. Now stop worrying and enjoy your life." It will also...
