"Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends."

"I wish it need not have happened in my time," said Frodo. "So do I," said Gandalf, "and so do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given us."

I like model railroading, growing houseplants, collecting dragon figures and reading.

I have;

had a (primarily) B&W darkroom, cut gems and designed facet cuts, done a little silversmithing and titanium jewelry work, raised tropical fish, raised Day Geckos and do my own car maintenance and some repairs.

I would love to have a train set, if only I had the space and money.

Rather depends on what you mean. I read books (and 'collect' books on specific subjects for the sake of it, and other related ephemera). I have an extensive SF and horror DVD collection. I also collect (as in display) model soldiers (when I can get them cheap(ish)).

Reading (sf, fantasy, thriller, history), sailing, RPG video games. I'm very much an "inner landscape" person and these activities can all be enjoyed solo.

I play acoustic fingerstyle folk & blues guitar, Mississippi John Hurt is my all-time guitar hero.

I have a fascination for collecting vintage transit tokens, especially for the streetcar and trolley lines that are nearly forgotten and lost to history but for the old tokens:




As do others, I also read a lot, but perhaps that goes beyond "hobby" when I actually have a room in my house that is a library.


cool

I play for a village cricket team so that generally takes up every Sunday afternoon between the end of April and the end of September, along with an hour and a half net session on the Wednesdays in March to get warmed up for the new season. We also have a long weekend tour somewhere else in the country where a couple of games are played against local teams, lots of alcohol is consumed and money gambled and lost on cards.

I've enjoyed video games since I was a child and am yet to grow out of it. I have a few TV programmes I tend to watch, a few boxsets to get through (I tend to do it pretty leisurely). I like music, reading, watching football (soccer) and professional cycling and drinking alcohol. I play bass guitar at church so enjoy practising (church and "heathen" music ).

Mostly though I like sleeping. What with work in a school and looking after a 1 year old daughter, I don't have time or energy for much else.

For most people, burritos are a food. For Rudy, they are a hobby.

Little surprised I'm the only one who mentioned Ultimate until now. I play weekly, and sometimes join city leagues.

Also, reading sci-fi and fantasy.

When green is all there is to be, it could make you wonder why. But why wonder? I'm green, and it'll do fine: it's beautiful, and I think it's what I want to be.
