    Right now, I have none. If you consider tinkering around with things that don't work and making them work again a hobby, well that's what I do.

    That is not your wife as she is beautiful, that is just some pic that you found on the net. Besides, we all know that you like riding with a dude on the back so you can...feel... his excitement! LMAO!!!!!!!!!!11111111

    Hi RoundEye

    As an older dude i have been through many hobbies that i have since left behind such as Skeet and Trap Shooting, Hunting, Photography, Drag Racing (was a car nut), had many Motorcycles, RVing when i had my kids and was married, loved Sports, Hockey, Ball etc. and along with my buddies rang more ounces out of more bottles than i care to remember and disappointed many women to boot.

    I am now pretty much down to Movies (Love black & white oldies & British Movies in particular) Computers & Folding as well as a constant over the years that being Stereo & in my case now CD's as the play medium. Been though them all, Vinyl, 8Track, Cassette, Reel-Reel & finally CD

    I just now checked my CD collection total from 16 Horsepower to ZZ Top, total of 1,219 Albums for a play time of 998H 21M 47S & i continue to add to my collection on a weekly basis.

    This is what now keeps me out of trouble. Sitting around watching TV, loving good movies i come across & listening to music as my computers hum away in the background and staying in touch with Family & Friends.

    Such is getting old.


    Of course i can't forget...Leafs Fan Forever...Go Leafs Go!

    minir, you really have 1219 albums?

    Is that all real vinyl or CD, or both?

    I call BS. I know you own a Harley but that's a David Mann picture and it even says it. You can tell his art right away.

    Hi RoundEye

    All CD & Yes that was my total as of today. I have a program called CATraxx which keeps them all organized & offers breakdowns by the ton, most of which i never use. I'm constantly ordering new stuff most of which is actually from the past, filling in blanks in a groups catalogue etc. I also read several Audiophile mags online and subscribe to Stereophile Mag that offer suggestions and ratings of CD's that if of interest to me i order. I tend to cut back in the winter & do more listening then for some reason.

    I know I wasn't suggesting that was an actual picture of me...it's one of my favorite David Mann pieces. I don't have long hair...but the woman on the back looks quite a bit like my wife...even same boots that go up past the knees. The picture is just representing what I love to do!

    Oh yeah..other hobbies...

    I'm not much of a fan of lobster these days. Ate too much of it growing up (I grew up in a rather famous fishing seaport)...neighbors and relatives had lobster pots.
    I don't mind it once or twice a year. My wife loves it, and I have a couple of great ways of cooking it that I'll do for her.

    I would imagine you'd get sick of it but I envy your access to it. LoL

    With lobster being debated with Canada as far as processing plant refusing to take US Lobsters. The prices will stay low until this is solved. I can get them for cheaper than beef. I brought 5, 1 pound and a half lobsters for a guest for 3.50 cents each lobster. That is a boat price.

    Speaking of lobster....the region I live in now made some headlines from a 17 lb lobster caught and sold to a restaurant. One of the restaurant patrons bought the lobster and set it free.
    17 lbs. Name "Larry the Lobster".
    Estimated between 80 to 100 years old
    This lobster was alive during WWII...and probably WWI. He deserved to live. Too big to eat anyways (any lobster over 6 lbs is quite difficult to cook in a way that it's not rubbery..unless you pressure steam cook 'em...and even then I'm sure there's a limit in size that remains tender)
    https://www.google.com/webhp?sourcei...w=1347&bih=664

    Click on above link to see some Google hits on Larry..the restaurant is about 1.5 miles from my house.
