Yours truly has perpetrated 6 extremely productive days in a row. Today is a well deserved, major slacker day for me. There may even be vodka involved.
The carnage I've seen in these forums the last several days has been unbelievable. This is the Happy Thread. One should only post happy thoughts here. Let the games begin. I'll start.
There are no evil people after me, either online or offline. That's another way of saying I'm currently not being subjected to any unethical bills, e.g., medical, cable, legal, or any of the other usual extortionist endeavours. Life being life, I know this is something to be truly grateful for.
Where I live, I am surrounded by nothing but good neighbors. Where I shop, all the folks like me. And as for HubPages, I've never seen so many nice people in one place in my life; that alone is truly amazing. HubPages truly is one of the islands of sanctuary in a less than stellar civilization.
I truly do have a nice life. And I am intelligent enough and experienced enough to fully realize that. Consider this post a thank you to whoever the powers may be in this universe.
I noticed I used the word "truly" 5 times. I am fine with that.
So, anybody else out there have any happy thoughts?
I would defiantly agree that the word vodka should enter the English language as a superlative. ie. PDS has been vodka when it comes to productivity! Lol!
I'm also really, really pleased that you have no unethical creditors chasing you. Brilliant!
I like my neighbours a lot too. And there's a camera in your very near future (Mystic Meg, 2014)
I wouldn't defiantly agree, btw, but I'd definitely agree
Having assured food and shelter really is a big deal in this day and age; for that matter, always has been. Once one has that foundation, striving for more is definitely achievable. I've had no less than 3 viral hubs here; enthusiastic about the 4th. The eternal search for that magic topic continues.
Assured food and shelter is taken for granted by so many, it's only when you're close to losing both that you can fully appreciate what life is like for people who have neither.
And just to add, because I often forget that you are on the other side of the pond, Mystic Meg was/is? an astrologer who wrote a column for one of the UK's trashy tabloids.
There's an iconic image of MM sitting in front of a crystal ball and a black cat is always in the picture. I discovered that she used to earn almost a quarter of million pounds a year, a couple of weeks ago. Wow! Eye watering sums.
Yes it is spring (kind of sort of) and I am always happy to be alive even on the days when my back is killing me or my child is screaming. It is also almost the weekend for me and tonight i will partake in a couple (or more) night caps and that equals happy for me (as long as I don't get carried away) and lastly I am happy I found HubPages a few years ago. Even though I don't earn much on this site I still think it is a good place to write.
Happy happy joy joy.
I just planted my patio garden last week, and seedings from all nine of my plantings just popped out yesterday--- eager to greet the world and eventually appear on a summer salad. That's a pretty positive metaphor, huh?
Hello, Chicago. That radio experience must have been a blast. I envy you.
I love when that happens!
We had a pretty heavy rain today-- and we are in a drought, so I am starting to think about my unplanted garden.
God's in His Heaven. All's right with the world. Feeling pretty blessed today myself. Spring has finally come to Georgia. My iris are blooming better than they have in 3 years. (All that hard work in July paid off.) It's my husband's birthday and my adult boys are coming for Mom's lasagna, but one of them has a new girlfriend who is of Italian heritage from upstate NY. Do I dare make lasagna for her? Advice!
Go for it. And solicit advice as to the next one. You will then become the lasagne queen.
I think you should, you're paying tribute to her heritage! Everyone loves a good lasagne!
today I finally received a camera I won in a contest months ago! i had given up on it awhile back after it didnt come, and today, it came! happy thoughts here!
Meanwhile, here's one of my Bubblews posts. I may do more.

The owl fell out of the tree as the cat walked by; the ensuing result was not pretty. The tombstones glimmered in the cemetery; the phosphorus leached from the ground was finally making itself known. No moon this night; the stars were bright.
The distant train whistle foretold of things to come. The tracks began to vibrate as the train drew closer. The tombstones dimmed one-by-one as the train rounded the last bend, its light coming into view. The cat continued munching his newfound, midnight snack.
The train drew to a stop. The conductor emerged.
“Is this the way to Silverado?” asked the conductor.
“Twenty more miles,” said the cat.
“Thanks,” said the conductor. He returned to his train.
The train departed. The cat burped. All was as it should be.
I have decided to paste this post in the HubPages forums.
Congrats on the camera! I love getting out and about and taking photos.
Here's another one. And be assured, I'm not posting my best. These are the ones that are not getting SEO traffic.

“What planet is this?” said the pilot.
“Darwin’s Planet,” said the navigator looking at the galactic catalog.
“Who was Darwin?”
“Don’t know. Don’t care.”
The two-occupant ship lands...
Right in the middle of a city. Needless to say, a crowd gathers. Strange looking creatures they were.
The pilot and navigator step out. “Who is Darwin?” they ask the nearest bystander as a lark.
“An advocate,” says the bystander, “ of ‘adapt or die’.”
“Adapt or die?” say the pilot and navigator.
“Yes,” said the bystander, shooting both the pilot and navigator.
The pilot and navigator lay dying. “This is why you call it ‘Darwin’s Planet’?”
“Darwin’s Planet?” said the bystander. “No. We call it ‘Earth’.”
I've decided to post this in the HubPages forums.
How come there are not more postings here? Bunch of slackers...
Well, I have had several vodkas. Looking for conversation. Be not afraid. I know it's Friday, traffic slow and all that. But I know you are there.
I feel another B post coming on. Who wants to play with me?
No conversation here? Really?
My latest B post. Really, anything is fine here.
And so it shall be…

Another SEO non-burner, but I don’t care.
This is one of my posts are that are no particular purpose. Though purpose can be found.
That SkyNet aka for real nay really be for real. What is SkyNet anyway?
I shall proceed….
A long, long time ago… Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. What will be?
Used to be… Not now. Is now.
Chaos in the park, do you recall…
Had my chance… Doorstep… The music died…
Rock and Roll is for real.
10 years really is for real. Been there; done that; who hasn’t?
Lost in space. Turned away. Written while listening to Bye, Bye Miss American Pie
And another do on HubPages forums.
If I so choose, next post won't be total cr@p. However, I will have to be enticed.
Racked up 34 cents so far. And I have hiccups. Really no one out there?
Yes, the next post was total cr@p. Will not post it here.
I have scrapped all my notifications. Do you have a problem with that?
I am happy that, for now, at least, my computer is hanging in there.
And here is my post for the day--I doubt it will go viral.
Why is wool so fussy? You have to wash it in cold water so it won't shrink.
What the heck? If a sheep fell into some hot water, would s/he shrink??
http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/121537 Apparently proceed.

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.

I know this is a topic some people may not want to talk about, but for those who do: what do you earn on Hubpages? As a new member, I am curious as to what people are making on here and how long it took to begin making some money. I know people say "wait for months" to see...

I'm new to HubPages, so give me a break if this is a terrible question. I nearly have 40 followers, and I have posted 15 hubs in 5-6 weeks. When do you start making the big bucks?
by Lynda Gary 11 years ago
Well, folks, I'm stumped.A few days ago, I signed up with RedGage. I hooked it up with my FB account (or something like that; I don't know -- I was just clicking where they said "click.") Then, I left the site. I didn't post anything, etc.I started getting all these...

I'm avoiding the religion and political forums today, and posts by certain people. I'm not feeling well so I'm crankier than usual What do you like best about Fridays when you work from Monday to Friday?

Hello everyone...It's Desert Blondie... After 60 columns, and trying to be a diligent HubPage writer (citing columns that were 'adult content,' or blatantly 'selling") I've been shut down by Google for inappropriate clicking! I'm stunned! All my work...the...
