Nick, I sing and play sax. I like to read novels. My 11 year old son and I read novels together. When he finishes one I read it too that way we can share the experience and have more to talk about. Before I moved to my current town I used to collect arrowheads that I found in the feilds around my folks home. The best find I maee was a stone hatchet. I like to ride my bicycle. I am a ham radio operator. I am a martial artist. ..............oh, and I also work at Sams Club. 20 year associate. chris

Thanks for the comments Hawg. My new album is closing in on finished, I left the vocals for last because thats where im more self conscious but when recording someone else would normally nail the vocals shortly after laying down the rythhm tracks.

Its great to see some of your hobbies/interests. Thanks for sharing, I am on limited time so am not going to comment on every one, but it would be great for some of you to share some photos as well of your work, the arrowheads/hatchet/ radio equip comes to mind. I have a friend interested in starting a radio station, maybe you could help him with something there, I know of the audio equipment to use (microphone, preamp, compressor, isolation materials) but know nothing really of the towers, broadcasting frequencies etc.

Tachikoma, Im a HUUGE movie buff as well. Have you seen oldboy?

Thanks for sharing everyone, I look forward to hearing from some others out there

nice room kjell..

me? since being disabled (Aug. '07) i had no interest in anything for the 1st year. boo-hoo
i use to sail my 27' but osama got it.. even so i can't do trimming now if i wanted to.
then i started thinking of lapidary for my hands and brain.. I've made thing all my life and this has me going.. started getting tools for it for a couple of years. prob is all the real tools are way past my means so i have to build it myself.. ask any old timer here what i built for the cam.. i finally finished my irrigated trim saw last week. it works great but all it needs is rebuilding. I'll post pix later.. I've only made 2 cabs and waiting for some ebay abrasives before i start building anything else. i figure another year and a half and I'll have some of the knowledge stuffing my head if i live that long.. knocked on deaths door twice this year so i never know..

Funny to hear you call a '78 bike a classic Les ! Around that time I was riding Kawasaki triples, first the 250 then the 550 ! Guess I'm older than I think I am !

travel, motorcycles, scuba diving. Gave up on competition shooting, sold off my fluted Remington 700 .308 early this year.

Now I have 4 motorcycles besides my camera gear. Bmw R1100RS BCR, Suzuki SV1000S, SV650S and a Honda CBR1000RR

All my scuba equipment. And a ton of frequent flyer miles

Afraid not, we don't get much in the way of Korean movies over here other than the really big budget titles, will keep take a look on Amazon and see if I can get it, thanks for the heads up!

my garden is sort of a hobby, but i made it intentionally low maintenance (next to no maintenance ) so the hobby bit is watching it flower then take photos
i used to do scale model making, i liked the tall ships and have the Cutty Sark, Victory and one thats like the Golden Hind but i dont think it is it
is falling asleep infront of the tv a hobby?
and taking my 64 EH Holden for a spin on the weekends
