Blessed by Skiesgreen 2013

Updated on June 9, 2014

Blessworthy and Special

As a Squid ngel" I get to fly over lots of lenses and have lost count of how many have received some star dust from my dusty old bag of goodies. There are now several other of these lensographies with featured lenses of those who have been blessed by me and the links are posted below so you have access to them.

Meanwhile it is a new year and a new beginning for many who are just starting out on this site.

My favorite way of travelling is in the chipmunk, which is the type of aircraft in which my first flying lessons took place. It was used as a training plane for the Royal Australian Air-force and it is least likely to crash on you. Enjoy your visit here and if you are visiting a lens of your own then please don't forget to leave a comment. If you are just perusing then comments are always much appreciated.

This is a work in progress so there are empty modules waiting to be filled at the bottom of the page, It will be completed when the last blessed lens is added sometime in the future,

What Do You Prefer?

Would you rather blessings or critiques

Animals - Wildlife

Pets make great pets and so do wild things like birds, etc.

The question is 'can animals survive' what humans are doing to the planet? Loss of habitat, overpopulation, climate warming and disasters like fires, floods, drought and so on are pushing them to the brink. Do we care? Some do and the lenses following are a brief look at what squids feel about them. Enjoy!

Art - Crafts

All the Great Tips for Creative Pastimes or Income Producing Hobbies

We all have something we love to do. Whether it is a hobby or a job from which we earn money there are some amazing stories being told. Here are just a few of the best of Squidoo in this category.

p>

Birds - Bugs - Insects

The Things that Make our Planet Great

We may screw up our noses at some bugs and insects but we don't see them from their point of view and nor from that of the birds and animals who feed on them. These creatures do more for the planet than we will ever know and they are as important, in fact more so, than any human. Enjoy the variety and the great lenses featured here.

p>

Books - Quotes - Authors

Reading is a Great Pastime that suits the Majority of People

Books are a world unto themselves. They take us to places we may not otherwise see, teach us things we might otherwise not know and they educate, entertain and amuse for hours on end. Why would we not love them?

p>

Cakes - Scones - Biscuits - Bread

Great Cooks in the Squids Kitchens

Squids have some marvelous cake recipes and ideas. While not many would claim to be bakers as such they surely would win some medals for these great lenses. You don't have to go to a bakery to buy any of them - just follow the recipes and you'll have them.

Collections - Hobbies

Some People Collect almost Anything.

Collections of goods and fancies take all shapes, texture and sizes. The following lenses represent what are considered valuable in the eyes of some squids and their joy and pleasure at consuming and adding to their hoards are obvious. Enjoy! Charlie is!

Cooking - Food

These Lenses will Make you Hungry

We are always in love with certain food but there are some extraordinary recipes in all categories that will find there way here. Pizza is always a strong favorite and very easy to prepare. But there are heaps more to see so stay tuned for the latest and best.

p>

Culture - Society

How we Live affects What we Do

This is one of those great areas for expressing human nature and how we live. There are so many different aspects to society that it requires its own heading. From winning ribbons at shows to tackling major problems we have it in these lenses.

p>

Education

Nothing is Achieved without It

Not everyone will make it but we have to give education to all who have the means to try. The Internet is a great place for people to start on their way to a better life, such as in places like Pakistan where the Taliban hate women and won't let them advance. In the lenses that follow you will be amazed at the knowledge you gain by reading them.

p>

Entertainment - Festivals - Celebrations

From the Simplest Things to the Most Complex our Minds Will Take it In

Some have weird taste when it comes to entertainment but there are some great stories told in the following lenses. They include movies, musicians, magicians, circus stunts and so on. Enjoy as you go through the list.

p>

Family - Relationships

Our Interaction with Others Speaks Volumes

Families bond over games, on picnics, around a meal table or just by talking and communication. Relationship is important too whether it's with your own children, partner or friend. However you find yourself under these circumstances these lenses will help improve the time together.

p>

Fashion

Presentation is Everything

Whatever your taste is in fashion and style the things featured in the following lenses will surely help you sort it out. Squids have great ideas about color, shape, things to wear, things to do and what goes best with what. Some of us need all the help we can get. But, hey, men have fashion too.

p>

Flowers - Gardens - Plants

Its Time to Get Your Hands Dirty

Flowers, plants and gardens go together and are places where the wild life come for food and sustenance, Insects are pollinators and birds are feeders and pollinators and the magic of their magnificence keeps us in awe.

p>

Gifts

Gifts must always be a joy to receive and something the receiver wants. The following gift lenses address many ideas and resources for purchasing the perfect present. There are some surprises among them as well. Enjoy!

p>

Health

Our bodies are the one thing we need to preserve as well as possible and there are some great hints in the following lenses to help with this task. As we age what we do now will make a huge difference. By the age of 40 things start to happen and by 60 the changes are enormous.

p>

House - Home

Our homes are our castles, our love, our peace and our families and they vary in many ways, including style, design, maintenance requirements and other things that we might do to them over time. The following lenses are full of tips and tricks on how to make the jobs easier, the housework more enjoyable and the home bigger. Whether you are a DIY'er or need a tradesman look here first for ideas.

How To Do It Yourself

Robots have become a necessary part of our world now and fixing them is not really a girl's job - or is it? Learn how to do so many things that were never considered possible before through these great lenses. From know how to completion of a task the things learned here will hold you in good stead.

p>

Internet - Computers - Marketing - Business

It doesnt matter what type of business you are in or what your goals are if you are not on the net then you are missing out, Kids as young as their teens are quickly learning how to become millionaires through websites and selling themselves via SE optimization and such.

p>

Inventions - Gadgets

Inventions come in all shapes and sizes and whosoever invented the hoop for dogs to jump through knew a thing or two. But there are some amazing things in this world today that our ancestors could never have dreamed of. It seems that whatever man dreams about he can achieve, if given the right environment.

Motorised Vehicles

Whatever takes your fancy to get around in is OK. There are some wonderful and some not so great examples of vehicles in which to travel in the following lenses. Vehicles may be energised by just about anything these days and with petrol in the decline there has to be some new inventions come along. Enjoy!

p>

Music - Instruments

It's a fact that some animals can, in fact, play music. I don't know which one's of course but birds, in particular, sing beautiful songs and some dogs howl to a tune, Never actualy have seen one play a banjo but someone has taught a dog to drive a car. Anyway whoever does it enjoy these lenses.

p>

Pets

They come in all shapes and sizes and some are small, others large, some live in water and some are too way out to even think about. Most people have pets of some description and here is a look at a few of them.

p>

Photography - Graphics - Images

Technology is moving so quickly in regards to photography that it is hard to keep up with the trends. Fortunately many squids know all about the latest models, their capacity and how to take great photographs. Others know how to enhance and store them. These lenses are tops in their field. Some photographers are more old fashioned and will look back to the "good old days"when lugging heavy equipment added to the joy.

But so do they when playing almost any game and even in the more respected ones there are accidents and pain associations

Sports go on year round with some winter sports having the largest following.

      Thank you so much for blessing and featuring my Malala Yousafzai lens. I have now (early January) read that she and her family are likely to remain in the UK for five years, but she does eventually want to return to Pakistan - a brave decision in light of the Taliban fatwa issued against her. I wonder what changes we'll see around the world by then, as we seem to be in an era of revolution, financial difficulties and enormous climatic disasters. Those of us who have a warm bed, a roof over our heads and enough food should feel very blessed.

We feel so blessed that he chose to spend time with us. Once again. Thank you so much for featuring My lens. That is so kind of you. Happy New Year. May you be blessed.
