Hmm. Well, singing, playing the guitar, harmonica, and keyboard...but lately just keyboard mainly. Used to write songs a lot, but not lately.

Reading spiritual books of one kind or another, mostly recent stuff and some of it's quite unusual.

Collecting and building plastic model kits, mostly WWII and WWI aircraft, some ships and other vehicles. I'm a walking encyclopedia of information about those things. I know stuff that most people couldn't be bothered to unless someone paid them... ;-)

Playing wargames of historical battles from Alexander the Great right up to WWII. (Can't be bothered with more recent history. It's too depressing. War just ain't what it used to be!) (that was a joke) Fortunately, since the advent of computers, finding competent opponents to play those games with is no longer the problem it once was.

Thank GOD! I now have a way to dispose of that damn collection of old mummified Yak balls that my insane Uncle left here when he died.

Jon models at 009 scale [4mm to an inch] and has a really good railaway in the stable. Me - I'm researching the history of our hamlet. I started out wanting to know who my house was built for as it is a Dower House, so she must have been an important woman in the 16th century, from there to the Manor House it was attached to and that was impossible without the rest of the hamlet. I've just unearthed the wills of 5 members of the original family which date back to 1603 - a few years after my house was built. Then, of course, you have to know about the social history of the time hence buying the Accomplisht Cook [thanks MMario] and introducing the rest of the hamlet to anything I find. Brilliant. 500 years of detective work.

Hi, everyone, new member here!)
Hobbies/obsessions:
Sled dogs (twenty-three outside at the last count), snowshoeing, hiking, scrambling in the Rockies, landscape painting in oil and watercolor, painting on porcelain, modeling character figures in 1:12 scale, playing music - flute, diatonic accordion and Northumbrian pipes (all self-taught, lousy teacher), simple living, reading writing, history of western Canada. Figuring out how to do everything I want to do in the measily twenty-four hours allotted to the day.

If you collect enough dryer lint you can stuff pillows with it. You can get it free too, if you go to a commercial laundry place. Just THINK of the possibilities!

Oh joy - a new outlet for my creativity :-) I need to work at making brighter coloured lint though. All my lint so far is either greyish, pinkish, purplish, or whitish. Not very promising for dryer lint art I'm afraid.

Note that Jeri's link to dryer lint art is HGTV, and it is a "sticky" site.

Janie - does that in part explain those gorgeous cards you make? My 100 cards just arrived and they are lovely -- now I am presuming you don't just photo the flowers, you grow them?? I'm impressed -- the cards are really stunning. You are very talented.

So many beads....
Beading, reading, jewelry, celtic knotwork in a variety of media, Medieval reenactment, collecting miniature taxi cabs and snowleopard art, surfing the web, reading strange threads on Mudcat.
Keeps me out of worse trouble.

When does something one does for amusement become a hobby? I sing, play music, shoot, fish, grow vegetables, brew beer, cook and all the general pastimes one imagines people do, but I wouldn't class any of them as a hobby.
To me the word 'hobby' is almost perjorative, with connotations of obsessive compulsion, anoraks and arrested development. But that is, of course, merely a subjective association!

Well a hobby is something you do regularly that doesn't need to be done.

So in the modern flick-a-switch society, growing your own vegetables rather than getting Tescos to deliver or even walking to the shop to get them yourself - well I submit - in the culture of excess it is a hobby.

On the plains of the Kalahari Dessert - it would be a necessity - if a struggle, so not the Noble Nomad's hobby. (yea, yea, I know - but nomads do husband the land)
