RE: What hobbies do you like to do?
For many years I have been a nature photographer - you've seen some of my stuff.
Backyard astronomy is something I've been doing for most of my life. I have an 11" Schmidt-Cassegrain telescope and struggle to do astrophotography.
And bad golf has been a constant companion. I've even built two sets of clubs for myself and a set of woods for my brother.

Until recently I collected watches, including buying, fixing, and selling. I was active on a watch forum and had connections to other collectors and to repair and parts companies. However, the watch companies made getting parts nearly impossible or very expensive. So, just a couple of weeks ago, I sold nearly all my watches and watch parts to another collector and to an auction house.
It was fun for nearly 20 years.

For the last couple of years I have gotten serious about trap shooting, including reloading my own shells. I am Assistant Treasurer and on the board of directors of my local sportsmen's club, as well as a member of the trap committee and captain of one of our teams in the local league.

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.

Wood working- currently building a new chest for my carving tools
Wood carving- just finished a carved little man, and getting it painted
Metal working- (mostly copper, but I've been to busy the last couple of years to get to this)
Surfing the net
Reading

I just got a new cell phone, so I'll be taking hopefully decent pics to post soon. My old camera was shit.

Sounds great would love to see

sorry, I couldn't resist.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I've gotten into polymer clay and making jewelry. What's op-shopping?
