Top 10 Creative and Unusual Fireplaces
The problem with fireplaces is that the older open ones are a little dangerous (without supervision) and the newer ones are just plain boring! Well, what I want is something in-between, fresh, modern and a great talking point when people see it. So I thought I would try to see what is hot and what is not in the World of modern fireplaces…
Top 10 Amazing and Unusual Swimming Pools
I have always loved swimming and as a child, I would stay in the pool for hours. When we vacationed at the sea I could swim until my skin looked old and wrinkled. We have a great pool at our current home. However, this post illustrates the use of glass and very creative architecture to create a pool that has to be admired by all…
Top 10 Images of Cats on Bookshelves
Cat videos seem to make up about 50% of what You-Tube is. Sure, most of them are funny, some are educational and some even very fact-full, but some can be just plain weird. The other day I came across one of a cat reading a book! I had to wonder if cats could indeed read simple signs or images (not Shakespeare just “no food”, “bad cat” things like that) but it seems cats are quite often drawn to bookshelves, sadly it seems mostly to sleep but it is Caturday and so it’s still worth seeing if there is even a hint of interest in reading them as we take a look at…
Top 10 Unusual Deep Fried Desserts
Chip Shops in the UK are not so much a food restaurant more a way of life. This blog post all started while I was on holiday in Scotland and I saw something on the menu that repulsed me. For the grand total of £0.60, you could have a deep-fried Cadbury’s Creme Egg! I was horrified at the mere thought of it! But was I a little too quick to judge it as disgusting?! For all, I know it could have been a taste sensation! Maybe I need to give them a chance, so help me decide which one you think I should try as I bring you…
Top 10 Creative and Best Repurposed Disk Spindles
Is it ‘old school’ nowadays to burn my own CD’s from my music collection? You see, whilst I do buy all my tracks from Google Music I still like to download it and burn it to a CD so I can play it in the car. I don’t have a posh car so all it has been a CD player in it. But now I seem to be getting quite a collection of empty plastic CD/DVD Spindles, so what I need is some ideas about what I can do with them, so I thought I would find out what I think is…
Top 10 Most Amazing Images of Snails
Quite a while ago now I did a post about “Top 10 Most Amazing Sea Slugs” and afterwards something made me feel rather sad. You see, the humble garden snail is never going to look as amazing or as colourful as a Sea Slug, but I thought I would try to bring some balance to the molluscan classes anyway. Can a picture of a garden snail really make people smile?! we are about to find out as I bring you…
Top 10 Strange and Unusual Playgrounds
Having a small child means that you do become something of a connoisseur when it comes to children play areas. You learn to spot the rough ones, the boring ones and the ones that are generally just not safe enough to let a hamster run around it let alone a small child. But play parks are changing shape. These days it is not unheard of to have a big name designer build it! So I have decided to show you what I think is…
Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Checkers Sets
While I do love a nice game of chess (as can tell in my previous post “Top 10 Best Chess Sets“) I have to admit that I enjoy the faster paced “Draughts” just as much. And I would not feel right if I didn’t give the humble game of international checkers just as much attention…
Top 10 Amazing and Unusual Motorcycles
I hold my hands up here, I am not a fan of motorbikes at all, I just find them too loud, too scary and overall just dangerous in every way! But maybe I am judging a book by its cover after all these days motorbikes are very safe and the safety laws you have to follow to ride them are second to none! Maybe it is just the look of these powerful bikes that I don’t like, maybe if they were a bit nerdier I would find them more amazing…
Top 10 Best Images of Rainbow Cats
Did you know that as a result of their ability to catch mice Ancient Egyptians would turn cats into sacred feline deities? They called them ‘miw’ and as a result of their closeness and indeed deep fondness with our feline friends they went into mourning whenever a ‘miw’ passed away, much like we would do when we lose our pets now. It was also thought that when the ‘miw” passed away they would create a rainbow! So without further ado, and because it is Caturday after all I bring you…
Top 10 Best Chocolate Fingers Cake Recipes
It can’t just be me that finds it amusing when I see what I thought was a UK ONLY product in a foreign country! Let me explain, you see while on holiday in Spain once I saw the UK much love favourite snack “Cadbury’s Milk Chocolate Fingers”. It brought such a smile to my face to see them in a different county and I am sure that other people have had the same sort of experiences with things from their own countries. So I thought I would celebrate these tasty little chocolate biscuit fingers by bringing you…
