I'm sorry if the title is misleading, I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to give you a conclusive answer as to how you can increase your mobile AdSense earnings, however, I can give you the benefit of my own experience using AdSense over the years and show you what I have recently done with my AdSense layout on my own website.

I have an using various different types of microphone headsets over the years and there are lots on the market that are really good. However, I been using Sennheiser microphones for several years now and I absolutely love them for their quality. I thought I would do a quick review on the Sennheiser microphone headset I have an using for the last year or so. The model is PC 8 and a retail around £34.95. They are excellent microphones which I would highly recommend. Watch my video review.

I purchased my four £5 gold coins from Bullion by Post about three years ago and if I sold them based on gold prices at the time of writing I would barely make any profit whatsoever.

Ever since Roho were invented the only way to set one of these cushions up and make sure that it has the correct amount of air inside is to use the hand check. This method is really very much hit and miss. Not everybody has the same size hands. Some people have got little skinny fingers, whilst other people have got big porky pig sausage fingers. This means that you could have one person setting your cushion up as per their size of the hand. Then another person checks your cushion but they have big fat fingers.. If you do use the hand check then I think it's important that you have one person who keeps a check on it for you.

Using feathers to catch mackerel is often lots of fun during the summer when the mackerel are prolific. When there are lots of mackerel around its more than possible to catch well over a hundred mackerel in a session.

This is a quick message to Dave, if that's your real name, who sent me a very rude email telling me that I had misspelt savaloy. You sir are a troll and a coward. You send me an abusive email using a false email address.

I have been using the Permolock wheelchair restraints mechanism in my Mercedes sprinter van ever since I got my new Permobil Corpus 500 in 2011. I think I've been using it long enough now for me to be able to give my opinion on what I really think of this wheelchair restraint system.

Is great to see a video of Brixham harbour during World War II. Not sure where the boys were being taught, probably above one of the shops opposite the old fish market. At the end of the video you see fishermen walking into a pub, I think this is probably the Sprat and mackerel

If you are a fisherman then I don't have to tell you how great the sport is. If you are a serious fisherman then you well know that when you're not fishing you're thinking about fishing, and when you are fishing your thinking about the next time you're going to go fishing. People who have the fishing bug think about it all the time. Now imagine being absolutely hooked on fishing but because of a disability you simply cannot get out and participate. Frustrating would be a complete understatement. I know this from personal experience. Thankfully I do have people who will go fishing with me, however, we have to arrange our trips, I can't simply decide to go fishing whenever I want, I've got to go when it's convenient for my helpers. That suits me, I know that people can't just drop everything when I want to go fishing. But there are people out there who don't have anyone to go with them, I really feel for these people, it must be horrible when you really want to do something but it's simply impossible because you don't have anyone to help.

I recently purchased a hot water "one cup" boiler which makes it very easy for me to make a cup of tea quickly. There are various models on the market, this one is slightly dearer as it has the facility to alter how much water it dispenses on each boil. This is great if you have various drinking mugs of different sizes.

Now the new fishing season is nearly upon us I decided that a new elasticated strap was needed as the old one is starting to wear out. The straps I've had before have all been made out of an odd bit of elastic that I managed to get hold of. This time I decided to look for something that little bit more robust and will last a bit longer. One of the straps I had before I was made out of elasticated corset that someone didn't want any more. So I had a roof around on the Internet and found some elasticated back support that people use if they've got bad backs, or require some extra support when working. After looking around for a day or two I found one that seemed to fit the bill so ordered it. I was absolutely delighted when it arrived, it was almost made for the job. The only alterations I had to make were the removal of an extra strap that wasn't needed and the attachment of some extra Velcro. Apart from that the strap was perfect and should last for many years.

I had a nice chat with Martyn Green the other day on the phone about fishing the River Dart at Totnes the other day. I've never spoken to him before but after our telephone call had learnt so much about where to catch flounder and bass and the best ways to catch them when fishing in the River Dart. If you are looking for a fishing tutor then I don't think you could go wrong with hiring Martyn. You can hire him as a fishing tutor for as little as an hour, or a full day. According to his website he can take up to 4 people.

Just when I thought EastEnders were improving their storylines they do a storyline which involves a double-decker bus mowing several of the residents down in Albert Square.

A couple of years ago I experimented with Berkely Gulp artificial baits when fishing in the sea. I tried lugworm, ragworm and peeler crab. Even though I did get some interest in the worm baits, and never actually caught anything. With the benefit of hindsight and a few YouTube videos for help, I now realise that I should have scaled down the size of the bait for where I was actually fishing.

Huge congratulations to Brixham quiz team called Abide with Me who appeared on the TV quiz show Eggheads today and actually won. Kevin was actually playing today so being able to win against him is, even more, reason to be congratulated.

You've gone to log into the admin side of your Joomla! 3.0 website and you are confronted with a white blank page. Normally when you get an error on a Joomla! website you will actually get a display on the screen of what the error is. If it's not showing you the error then it's very difficult to work out what's wrong. I found a very simple fix for this problem.

In light of the 2017 announcement of who is going to be knighted, I feel that this trend of giving knighthoods to anyone who manages to win more than one gold medal is cheapening this highest honour.
Nobody would argue that Mo Farah or Andy Murray are at the very top of their game. Both of these gentlemen have only achieved greatness within a few years. I don't know how much charity work they do, I can't imagine either of them has much time for charity work. Even so, the knighthood is a really massive award and in my opinion, should only be given to people who have really done something special for many years throughout their life.
I would actually suggest that people like David Beckham are more deserving of a knighthood than Mo Farah or Andy Murray. Bruce Forsyth had to wait 50 years for his knighthood. Ken Dodd has been going for God knows how long, he has also just been knighted, and deservedly as well.
