My biggest hobbies are pool/8-ball and fixing anything that seems broken. I also started fishing again last year, but I can still claim to not have caught any fish for the last ten years.

Lets see... I play some guitar. I can also fake it fairly well on the bass. I was in a few bands from 2001-2005. I even got to play for the Stanley Cup :cool:

I also enjoy futzing around with my computers. I have 2 desktop systems and a laptop. I like upgrading every 2 or 3 years. I put together my own desktops so I can get exactly what I want.

I used to enjoy riding my motorcycle (Kawasaki Vulcan 750) but the dang thing always gave me problems. I gave it to my brother-in-law a couple of years ago. I'd like to get a new one but my garage is currently full with a '67 Murcury Cougar that used to belong to my father. It needs a lot of work but we are hoping to fix it up someday...

Refinishing furniture

Building just about anything.

Making something out of junk.

Messing with my "fleet" of old and new vehicles.

Mmmm........ I'll just have to do this like you guys don't already know! :roll:

First up and far and away my main interest is music. Both playing and listening to. I drum in a wicked band called 'Designs of Chaos'. (http://www.myspace.com/designsofchaos) (I'm the one with all the hair at the back!)

I spend all my hard earnt cash on audio equipment. I had a pumping install in my Maverick, but some f**ker stole my sounds a couple of months ago. :rant:

To consol myself i treated myself to these....
But mine are white & 7.1. And this to drive them....


I have only very recently moved from a 2 bed flat....Sorry..."Apartment", to a 3 bed house. And it needs some modernising. So that's gonna keep me busy.

Other than that, I'm a film buff, enjoy good books (Dean Koontz, Richard Laymon, Brian Lumley, John Connely, Shaun Hutson, Dan Brown, and some James Patterson), good food, & Kronenbourg 1664 :cheers: Enjoyed with my lovely Wife and friends and family. :smile:

Bought a house a year ago, so that keeps me and the wife busy. It's a new construction, so nothing was there outside wise, so we built a wood fence, patio, and put some grass all over. This year I'm building a shed, enlarging the patio, or is finances permit, a deck. I also have to install rain gutters, but I'll probably get someone else to do it...I'm not going up a ladder that tall to install those lol.

Real hobbies:

Wood working
Video Games
Home Theatre/Audio/Home Automation
Skiing
Fishing
Cottage life!!
4wheeling
Boating/Tubing/Waterskiing/Wakeboarding
Anything electrical
Oh, and I'm a gadget freak :mrgreen:
