Top 10 Unusual Door Knobs and Handles
As an adult with a young child, my TV time is taken up with 80% kids channels. But as most parents will tell you there are times when the makers/producers or writers of these shows slip in a little bit of adult humour. And the other day while watching an episode of “The Hoobs” one character told the rest of them that she couldn’t play because she was busy polishing her knobs!!! Well, of course, I fell about laughing much to my child’s confusion. But maybe it was just my rude mind because really she was just talking about her collection of door knobs, so to redeem myself I have decided to bring you…

Here we look at some of the earliest cookbooks around, which also happen to be among the rarest on the planet…

Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Sofas
Is it wrong to hate sofas? Sure they are comfortable and after a few years, you get your own little “bum grove” in them that fits as snug as a bug in a rug. But there are just too many downsides for me. One of the main things is that they eat things! Remote controls, food crumbs, toys and enough loose change to be able to buy all those things that it ate in the first place!  And another is that when you change your decor in the living room suddenly your sofa looks out-of-place and completely random! So I was thinking that the next time I buy a sofa I will get one that is already completely random and stands out in the first place…
Top 10 Creative and Unusual Coat Hooks
Before anyone asks “No!” I am not scraping the barrel with this one, it will be a lot more interesting than you think I promise. Maybe I am putting far too much thought into the little things in life, but I often think about what certain things like “Coat hooks” say about the homeowner. After all, it was Charles De Gaulle who once said: “start out in a new relationship by giving up your hat, then you give your coat, then your shirt, then your skin and finally your soul.” Well, before I give up all that lot I will be checking where it is going, and what the coat hanger says about the person, so I have decided to …
Top 10 April Fools Office Pranks
Well, it is officially April fools day and I have a very shameful thing to admit to…I have never played an April Fools joke! Not a pull my finger, not even a simple “cut off finger” in the matchbox prank, nothing! Does that make me sad? Well, I think it does, so maybe I need to step up the mark and pull off a big one. I work in an office now and it seems that the office April fools pranks are some of the best you can do! But I am going to need your help, I need you all to decide which one you think I should do. So sit back, relax, as you have a good hard think about which …
Top 10 Best (Ostereier Baum) Easter Treese
When I was just 12yrs old my family had decided to visit my Grandma for Easter (my family didn’t really get on with each other so this was in fact quite a rare thing to do) But getting back to the point of this… While visiting my Granny, her next door neighbour was using a ladder to hang brightly coloured eggs in this little bush/tree that he had in the garden! This odd tradition is mostly seen in Germany (he was indeed German) and it is done by decorating the branches of trees and bushes with eggs for Easter and it is centuries old, but sadly its origins have been lost. So why not join me as we take a …
Top 10 Creative and Unusual Business Cards
The other day I got talking to a good friend of mine that I had not seen or heard of in a very long time. We talked for hours just remembering fun times, and it was great to catch up with him as it seemed he was doing far better in life than I could ever dream of! (isn’t that always the case), but the reason for this blog is that he gave me something that I have never been offered before, he gave me a business card! It was nothing amazing, but it did make me wonder just how good a business card could be. The answer surprised me and I will show you why…
Top 10 Of The Worlds Most Amazing and Unusual Aquariums
I am one of those people who can sit down and watch a fish tank/aquarium for hours on end. The countless hours inside Sea-Life centres looking at all the amazing sea life just swimming around and going about their daily lives. But what brings us here today is a very special breed of people who love watching fish far, far more than me. So much in fact that they have decided to incorporate aquariums in the most unusual places I ever thought I would see. It brings me great pleasure to bring you…
