    This week we visit Mackinac Island's Grand Hotel to showcase 18 HubNuggets Wannabes' Hubs by newer HubPages writers. The Somewhere in Time film fan convention is in town and the HubNuggets Team must serve these nuggets of tasty writing to a crowd of fans that call themselves Time Travelers.

    HubNugget Impossible - A Banquet in Time

    Please read and enjoy the offerings and remember to vote for your favorite HubNuggets Wannabe Hub in each of three categories:

    Sports and Recreation
    Games, Toys, and Hobbies

    By sheer means of your accumulated votes, the Top 9 Wannabes will become Official HubNuggets and gain recognition and increased Hub traffic, although all 18 are winners from among a field of multiple 100s.

    Want to know more about HubNuggets? Visit the HubPages Learning Center at the Special Programs Link:

    Wannabes! - Encourage all of your friends, associates, and family members to go to the round up Hub ( and vote for you (but please refrain from posting your Link in a Comments thread or on the Forums.

    If P8Bleu ever cleans up the dishes, we'll bake a table full of pies. We'll retrieve girlish figures through the time tunnel later.

      I'm surprised more people haven't voted in the Games, Toys & Hobbies category.  I found those Nugget wannabes especially interesting.

      C'mon Hubbers!  Rock the vote!

    :-) I agree with Maddie Ruud,  more people should vote in the Games, Toys and Hobbies category. But all the other hubs are so good, I feel special just to have mine even included among them.
    Hey, when does the voting end?

    Congratulations, BenjaminB. I thought the voting doesn't end yet. This is a very timely hub, especially with regards to HEALTH theme. Toys, I think is not so famous this season. It should be on December, what do you think?
    Been a wannabe, too on Sept.2009 when I wrote about the Strangest Places in the USA after a week of hubbing.
    Congratulations again!!!

    Thanks for the comments!

    Topics rotate automatically through the weeks at  the rate of 3 topics per week, and don't always coincide with their related seasons, if any, it appears. Travel_man1971 - you're probably correct that winter holidays and Christmas might bring more play towards Toys and Games, vote-wise. Thanks for pointing it out. Fun contest, anyway!
