Thank you, I had plenty of experience to draw on for that one,  from visiting some very slow food restaurants when we use to holiday with the kids.  One place was a boredom nightmare as it was in a small village with nothing for the kids to do. If I wrote the story of visiting it and the odd things that happened, no one would believe me. It was not our choice to eat there and was more a case of keeping a distant relative happy.

Thank you chef! My brother was just saying today that he can't stop making and eating those bourbon balls.

My favorite articles? I've got to go think about that. There are so many great articles on Wizzley!

WOW. Thank you.

I thought of several but have to go find the link thingies. Dogs want to eat supper first...My day has been out of my control. I'll be back!

ps - off the top of my head, I love the vanishing colony series and the ice age series by our Jo.

I'd vote for the smoking and sugar connection too.

I could list all of dustytoes articles about Zazzle, but I'll give credit to some other writers.

I love this one because I love stories about people who have pulled themselves up out of despair and made a good life for themselves.

As many as you want, Hollie. It's a truly informal thingy. Cool

Ok. I've made my selection, I think.

 http://wizzley.com/the-criminalization-of-britain-s-jobless/ One of Jo's.

http://wizzley.com/marilyn-monroe-top-selling-posters/    One of katie's.

http://wizzley.com/palestine-and-israel-brief-history/   Sheri's. I also have to add that I appreciated and enjoyed this page more than I have any other throughout the whole of 2012. The voice of reason in a world gone mad.

http://wizzley.com/the-good-and-the-bad-about-camper-living/  One of Lana's. I think it's fair to say that Lana and I are both dog lovers- and I've really enjoyed reading the pages about dogs. But, I especially liked this one even though not dog related.

Also really enjoyed Bronwyn Joy Hanson's Lunch at the White House. http://wizzley.com/white-house-lunch/

I could go on, but only allowed 5.

I'm sitting in a college cafeteria waiting for the time to roll around to 2 pm and I go give a lecture (here in Israel, Jan 1 is not a holiday) and I casually opened the forum just to see what may be going on. What a thrill and a surprise to see the two articles I am absolutely most proud of being listed on this thread. Thanks for the shot of adrenaline.  Now I'm off to lecture and I'll add my favourites after I get home - you gave me something neat to think of during the drive home.

Happy New Year everyone.

Hope you all had great parties last night.

It is difficult to just find five, but here some that stuck out for me:

Sorry if I don't have the titles exact.

Create Fake Zombie Wounds - by katiem2 (my son especially loved this one)

Fiona The Theater Mouse - by sheilamarie (such talent!)

Jagex Studio Tour - by Jo (great personal photos here to go with her story)

How to Buy a Gas Powered Lawn Mower -by teddletonmr (this page helped me buy something that was quite unfamiliar to me.  I find many of his pages very helpful.)

Cupcake Card Template - by kinworm (I don't do crafts, but this is a beautifully done page.)

I also love Brenda's gardening pages, Mira's recipes, Sheri's stories, and oh so much more!

Happy new year to all .....!!

I've been struggling with this for the past two days now. I love all the suggestions others made above.

Plus, Tess' articles are down to earth and interesting.

I look for Paula's (lakeerieartists) articles on making money online and Jo's for historical stuff. Then there are several that I gratefully read - such as Jerrico and Chazz and Paul for technical stuff and Dustytoes for zazzle.

I loves sheilamarie's story reading video.

What can I say - just a great community of writers I am happy and proud to be a part of.

Happy (20)13 everyone!

Just to add, ALL of Dustytoes Zazzle pages. Thanks to Dustytoes, I've been able to set up my Zazzle store today, remove the background from some images I already had on my laptop, discover where I can obtain high quality images for use in designs and also learn how to promote my store. I feel like Pam has saved me weeks of research and endless frustration.
