    October through April - BEER.

    April through October - Drag Racing. 1969 Ford Falcon with a stroked 351C runs mid tens at almost 130 mph in the 1/4 mile.
     
  5. I am a collector in real life. I will find things and save them till I can find a home for it. Old books papers etc... Some what of a Curator, a person who keeps things safe until a good home can be found.

    In my personal collections, Matchbook Covers. I have close to 85,000 of them in the collection. Most of them are for giving away or trading. My "collection" has about 20,000 and they are from the 20's 30's 40' and 50's.

    As I said, I collect many different things, mostly all old stuff. My Grand parents were Antique dealers when I was growing up and I would travel to all the shows with them. I also had a paper route when I was little, so on trash night I would find treasures and take them to the Antique shows and sell them. I made about
    $3,000 one summer finding old furniture and haveinf Grandpa fix it and then sell it. One table I found, it was a drop leaf from the 1920's, it had a cracked leg, Grandpa fixed it and stripped all the old paint off made it look like new and sold it for $400. Not bad for finding somthing in the trash.

    Having spent much of my youth around collectables and antiques, now in my late 30's ok ok 39 to be exact, I have a love for older things.

    Anyway there is my story. Thanks catskillpk for asking the question

    Peace be with all of You

    I used to practice martial arts, Jeet Kune Do and Eskrima, but I haven't done any training in a long time. I used to do the Live Action Role Playing thing too, but haven't done that for a about a year.

    So... what do I do now... well, since going on a cruise to the Bahamas on my honeymoon, and then again last month, I have absolutely fallen in love with the ocean and sailing. I want to take up windsurfing, but it's a bit too cold right now so I have to wait until it warms up again.

    Recently I have gotten into gambling... poker, roulette and slot machines. It something else my wife and I developed a taste for on our cruises. We don't play for money, just free interenet sites like Pogo and iWon.

    I go bass fishing. I enjoy going out and enjoying the outdoors... most of the time I just go by myself because less distractions the more fun I have. Could fish for a living, but you have to have money to start with.

    I'm not much of a social butterfly, but I get along with everyone.

    Lately it's just been work.... well getting into an actual career field and fishing when I can.... This coming week I don't think I will get fishing in since it's going to drop 20 degrees Sunday and will turn off the fish.

    And that is just about it until I have better funds saved up... I'm wanting to get my own house a bit down the road and start with nothing in there and then get everything that I want in there.

    I guess that my longest running "hobby" would be model aviation.

    Even as a little kid I was always trying to make something that would fly. Gliders, rubber band power, kites, you name it. At about 12 I started flying line controlled aircraft with small two-cycle engines and then radio control a couple of years later. During the mid 70s I started racing radio controlled aircraft which is a real rush.

    I kind of went inactive for a while in the 80s and started back up again in 1992. I also started racing again and hooked up with a retired fellow who had been an engineer for GE’s jet engine division here in Cincinnati. At that point in time you had to make just about a professional commitment to be competitive in racing. Although my friend did not fly the racing planes he was a genius when it came to the design. We did very well with a new aircraft that he had designed. We had a lot of fun and won a lot of race over the next few years. At one point we were 24th in the NMPRA national standing for the year even though we had attended far fewer races than the other teams. We even held a few class speed records for a time.

    My friend died a little over a year ago. I have not been flying since.

    I hear you. My friend and I used to attend the CAF (Confederate Air Force) Air Show and Reno Air Races every year. He was a pilot, and I am passionate about planes and flying. Since he was killed, I no longer attend...but the local Stearman PT-17 flying overhead still makes my blood race. *smiles*

    Apart of UO I have lots of other hobbies...

    I love to work with my two dogs. I am training them for resque-work. It is great to work so closely with them. With the youngest of them, I also practise ability and obedience.

    Then I have two horses. I just love horse-backriding. My oldest horse is now 28 years (she is really a pony). She is now many and many years with me. My other horse is still young (3 years old) and he has yet to learn everything (he is a Tinker-horse, also known as an Old Irish Cob horse). Also great fun to do...

    Hmmm... for the rest... gardening, reading (fantasy and SF), fitness and jogging, swimming and there are many more things I enjoy to do.... Oh, did I mention UO? /php-bin/shared/images/icons/tongue.gif
     
  25. Hobbies, hobbies...lots, actually. :)

    Working on my car (not so much for fun anymore--but I still do better work than clueless mechanics :)

    Gardening...transforming my place into a refuge for the local wildlife by planting and tending just about anything that is NOT a lawn. Digging a pond for the frogs, growing oaks, redwoods, buckeyes, berries and so forth

    Watching football...and playing it whenever I get the chance /php-bin/shared/images/icons/smile.gif

    Collecting obscure OOP books for my own edification, playing with my ancient Star Wars collection (hey...they are TOYS!), researching whatever strikes my (current) fancy, designing my own costumes, studying military history and (board) game design, playing amateur naturalist for anyone who expresses an interest in their surroundings, studying and illustrating the flora and fauna (read: slogging around in my mud boots) of the local, intermittant creeks and streams and their littoral zones, breeding Tiger Oscars (before they were killed in a tragic acident *cries*), painting 25mm military miniatures, and...stuff. Lots o' stuff.

    Oh, and dancing! And music! Trying to teach myself how to play violin. Hehe

    CAF rocks. I love how they are keeping those noble old war birds flying.

    A few years back I had the privilege of flying a B-17 here in Cincinnati (It was "Aluminum Overcast" which belongs to the EAA). My dad was a ball turret gunner in a B-17 during the war and I read and study every scrap of information I can find on the plane (another hobby?). Getting to actually fly one was a once in a lifetime thrill. It certainly gave me a better appreciation of remarkable courage required to crew one during a combat sortie.

    This weekend I have to go over to my friends house and gather up all his stuff. His widow is moving and she has no need of his airplanes and radios. I was planning on using his planes to teach his grandson to fly, but the boy has no interest right now. So, I am taking it all to auction so someone can get some use out of it and she can get a little extra money.
