Top 10 Best Cadbury Creme Eggs Cupcakes
“I am so sorry!” I had to say that before anyone kicks off about being on a diet or how their keyboards have broken because of drool between the keys. It is Easter time after all and while it may well be a religious celebration it is also about the day when the kids (and the kids inside us adults) get to eat our own body weight in chocolate. So it is time for those on a diet or owns a “non-drool proof” keyboard to stop reading this post and close the browser, but for the rest of us let the madness commence…
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 Obviously Fake Easter Bunnies
With Easter coming up my little boy and me, both get excited at the thought of waking up and finding out what the Easter Bunny has brought us. But the other day we were inside a supermarket when a large green Easter bunny stopped little boy and me and gave him an egg, (not me the old skinflint) all well and good you say, but upon exiting that supermarket and heading into the high street a pink Easter Bunny decided to give my little one another egg. (once again I didn’t get squat!) I thought nothing of it until we were in the car on the way home and my little boy asks “Which one was the real Easter Bunny Dad?” I …
Top 10 Nerdy and Creative Painted Eggs
When I was little I can remember that I hated Easter. But not because my family couldn’t afford chocolate eggs because although we couldn’t we always got some off neighbours and relatives that were better off. No, I hated it because it was that time of year I was forced by the school art teacher into painting an Easter inspired egg! News Flash!!! I have no art skill at all! Not one bit. My eggs would always be the class laughing-stock. But looking back it seems I just needed to be a bit more of a nerd! Then maybe I might have been able to pull off one of these bad boys…
Top 10 Unusual Novelty Egg Cups
My mum always had some funny names for certain things (don’t all mums!) and one that will stick with me forever is “boiled egg with toast fingers” that my mum always called “puppy egg and soldiers” (I have no idea why) and so every year on Easter Sunday that is what we would have to eat. But now I am a lot older and in need of a lot more stimulation in life, so I have decided to get myself a brand new egg cup for Easter, but sadly for me it seems to be a lot harder than I thought, especially as have this lot to choose from…
Top 10 Strange and Unusual Bull Gift Ideas
If ever there was a cattle animal that a lot of men wish they were, it has to be the bull. Big, strong and born for breeding. But unless all those males start to believe in reincarnation they are never the animal itself. But maybe they will appreciate one of these rather unusual gift ideas….
Top 10 Best Images of Laser Eyed Cats
Have you ever taken a family photo and ended up with a red “glow” in the centre of their eyes?  Well, when it comes to cats eyes the same thing happens because their eyes have a special reflective surface called the “tapetum” which improves their night vision by doubling the amount of light that is able to hit the retinal cells, and it is also why cats can see so well in the dark!  This special layer is what makes a cat’s eyes glow brightly in the dark, especially when you shine a light near of at them at night. But it seems that us “Cat Fans” have taken to calling those images “Laser Eyed Cats”, and so with that …
Top 10 Best Cake Roll Recipes
My memories of cooking in school are not good at all. I can clearly remember what I was asked to cook so recoil is not the issue here, the problem is that I am a rubbish, cook! I will never forget the day I was told to make a Swiss Roll. It was looking OK until the moment came to present it to the teacher and mine rolled out in front of him and ended up as straight as a piece of paper again with everyone around me laughing. So if I can’t make a good one myself maybe it is best that I just bring you images of how a “Cake Roll” should look like, and so without further ado I bring you…
Top 10 Things To Make With Car Tyres
Each and every year tens of millions of rubber tyres are disposed of in the UK. Many are burned in what is called a slow smoulder burn and even more than that are sent to landfill. But I say this needs to stop! Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a Eco-warrior protest, it is just me saying we don’t need to dispose of them in those old-fashioned ways that are still causing an impact on the environment, not when you could use them to make one of these amazing things…
Top 10 Best Pictures of Funny Sheep
I will never forget the 19th of August 2001. Because on that dreadful day while at a local  “City Zoo” I was in a field full of sheep (that I was feeding with a bag of seeds or whatever they gave me) when one decided it would be funny to “head butt” me over a fence, snagging my trousers on the way over and exposing my bare, rare end to all within range of my own high pitched calls for help! I felt so embarrassed, but the farmer tried to comfort me be saying that it happens to him all the time and that sheep are actual as playful and fun loving as many a dog! So maybe we should find out if sheep really are as “fun” as that farmer suggests, …
Top 10 Amazing Sculptures Made of Drinks Cans
I am not the kind of guy that people would instantly associate with the being an “Art Lover”, sure I do appreciate a good painting like the Mona Lisa but when it comes to modern art I just have not got a clue. But when a fellow nerdette makes art then I naturally enjoy it because that artist has been inspired by the same things that I like! But there aren’t many modern artists that have done enough to warrant a whole top 10 inspired solely by their work. But Japanese artist “Makaon” has done just that and it does bring me great pleasure to bring you just a small selection of her work…
