My 10 Most Recent Lenses page has been updated for November, spotlighting all of my newest lenses for the month. I've also used the page to talk about my other Squidoo updates and milestones for the month, and what's been going on in my life otherwise.

Now it's time to start getting ready for Christmas - ack! Too much to do in too little time...

I haven't been very good about updating here lately. Time to start doing better on that.

Since August I have been at work on a special Squidoo challenge to complete 31 new lenses, in a new niche, by October 31. I'm not sure I'll make it all the way there by the deadline, but I have been working hard at tackling my chosen new niche: Winter Holidays. Here's a quick link list of those new pages, which I'm sure I'll be updating and talking more about in the future as the Christmas season grows closer:


  1. 2011 Christmas Gifts for Classic Rock Fans
  2. About the Feast of the Seven Fishes
  3. Buy Nothing Day vs. Black Friday
  4. Cooking for a Holiday Party
  5. Gourmet Holiday Gifts for Italian Food Lovers
  6. Great Christmas Travel Destinations
  7. Holiday Events in Gloucester County, New Jersey
  8. Infertility and the Holidays: A Survival Guide

Why the commercialization of the holiday season bothers me on a personal level. How my early childhood and later adult experiences made me re-evaluate the truly important aspects of the holiday season.
