#185 RMS Lancastriahttp://www.squidoo.com/lancastriaAbout Britain’s worst maritime tragedy, where four thousand people lost their lives, and the Lancastria Association’s ongoing fight with the British Government for a memorial.

The Console […]

Last night Squidoo issued a policy change – no more X-rated lenses. This meant that the Domebo lens would be shut.I created an entirely new lens for it at http://www.squidoo.com/Domebo-forum which is R-rated and I have done everything I can to make sure it stays that way. A lot of the content here will look […]

#159 Prehistoric Park

#159 Prehistoric Parkhttp://www.squidoo.com/prehistoric-parkA fan lens about Impossible Pictures’ Prehistoric Park series. Starring Nigel Marven and a lot of dinosaurs (and scarily believable special effects) this was a children’s series but is easily enjoyable as light entertainment by people of any age.This lens isn’t actually complete, so you are getting a sneak preview. I need to […]

I’m not a huge fan of the template, but I find the Father of Modern Pathology’s work fascinating, andits a natural meet for a lens. This is one for the CSI fans.I’m torn between adding more details to the lens and spinning off […]
