Hubs that never saw the light of day
5 Fabulous Knives
The idea behind this hub was to review different varieties of knives, professional quality as well as knives for home chefs. As a former student of Le Cordon Bleu I considered myself an expert on cutlery. OK stop laughing, I really do know a thing or two about knives, just not as much as i needed for a full length hub. So I did the research, I found some great photos of some really great knives. I had , and Henkel, I had Messermeister, and CIA Masters Collection. I had a lot of great knives for a great hub, but then I Seven'd out. For some reason I lost my nerve, maybe because it was my first hub, well it would have been. Wusthof

That Magical Place They Call the Library
Walking home from the library I had this brilliant idea that every school-age child should have a library card. Over the years I have read a lot of books, some I purchased for myself, but most borrowed from the library. I wanted children to know the joy I feel when I crack a book. I wanted to show them how much mystery and adventure the library holds. The most important thing that I wanted to show the children is this; when you develop good reading habits when you are young, they stay with you for a lifetime. On a final note, as parents, teachers, librarians, principals, and all others who touch children's lives everyday, we owe it to them to encourage them to read.
The Fastest Growing Jobs over the Next 5 Years
I had been searching the U.S. Census site and came across a great link to the best jobs over the next few years. My Idea was to take the stats and turn it into reader friendly material. Great Idea isn't it? Apparently too good of an Idea. As I began compiling my data and saving it for some drastically needed editing, something happened. A very Elite hubber wrote a very similar article, in fact a series of very similar articles. What could I do? I'm only me, I only have 3 followers, I can't compete. I did what any self respecting hubber would do, write. I decided to bring life to my defunct hubs, by Writing, writing a hub about hubs that I started writing that never saw the light of day.
America's Love Affair With Chocolate
Valentines day has come and gone and with it over 58 million dollars spent on chocolate. In a year Americans spend an average of $11.00 for every man, woman, and child. There are two types of people in the world, those who like chocolate and those who don't know they like chocolate. This article was to include the history of chocolate, from its Mayan roots, to its Baby Ruth's. Also interesting tid bits about chocolate. For instance did you know that white chocolate is not actually chocolate. Now here is a bit of information that almost nobody knows, especially anybody in the chocolate industry; John Cadbury, the founder of the chocolate company, was born on my birthday. OK, OK I was actually born on his birthday.
Charles Dickens Bicentennial
I had for this hub. February 7th was my sons 24th birthday, but it was also the Bicentennial of Charles Dickens birthday. I have a few other connections to Charles Dickens as well, for one I was always asking for more. Charles Dickens spent a great deal of his childhood in debtors prison, I've spent a great deal of my life in debt. Charles Dickens wrote Oliver Twist, I could never decide between an Olive or Twist. All kidding aside, Charles Dickens was a great man and a talented writer. I missed a great opportunity to write about one of the greatest writers ever. Great Expectations
