Trains. And I like blowing whistles and horns.

Grandkids. But I don't know if that's a hobby or an illness.

And music. Not playing mind you, no one wants to hear that. I work (unpaid volunteer & board member) on one of the largest not-for-profit music festivals in the southeast. My wife says it's an addiction.

Older British Sportscars. The "classic" ones cleverly designed to have sacrificial parts fall off at random intervals, to self-oil the undercarriage from the engine lube and with random on/off electrical systems. Keeps my masochistic side happy.

Most of us "old guys" had trains when we were younger,, and some of us still enjoy messing with trains. designing, building, whatever,,. I myself built a huge slot car track with all the landscaping necessary to make it life like. anyway this video is a must see. Its a bit long but its worth every minute.

David, What's the story on the MGB with a V8?

Mark, You're going to have to tell us more. Do you keep a steam engine in your back yard?

Those are really great hobbies! I fully understand the drugging of holes, I just sold my old. Kubota TBL, and I miss it.

I would say my hobbies are SUMO Bikes/racing, logging, flying with my Dad, and museums, mainly aviation and maritime.

Reverse that. It's an aluminum Buick 215. GM sold the engine rights to Rover and it became the Rover 3.5 (and then eventually larger capacities on the same block).

I used to use Dektol with Selectol Soft because Ansel did. Then, when Kodak went digital I switched to Ilford film and paper, and experimented on making developer and fixer from scratch. Now I use an Ansco 120 formula variation with Glycin added to it that kicks Dektol and Selectol Soft in the butt, works for both film and paper, and keeps almost forever

Nothing fancy like Murray does, but my hobby is photography. Here's one I took this week from in front of the house.

Dude, that one's awesome!

90% of nature photography is actually being there with your camera.

MurrayM, if you ever get down to Miami, I'll take you out to Clyde Butcher's gallery in the Everglades. He does some neat stuff with an old 8 X 10 and makes giant prints.

I wish I flew out of bham, sadly I work on the east coast. But don't worry, it's hard to see any details from the chopper. I have been flying for 14 years and have only gotten a show twice. Once was pre arranged, told my ex when I was going to be flying over and to be ready so I guess that doesn't count!. The other I wish I could un see!
