Hi again, Dee.

Yup, gotta love that 420, can't think of any better hobbies than that.

I do have quite a few other interests though, I just wish I had time for them all. I enjoy playing my guitar, hanging out on After Hours, programming, pets (marine fish and reptiles), and a whole list of other things. I'm pretty sure that my favorite pasttime though would have to be flirting with all the ladies on AH. <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle>

Well, I'm not sure of the exact explanation, but 420 is a euphemism for weed.

I think it might be the police code for pot smoking out in California or something. Not that I'd know myself, of course.

I like playing paintball, tennis and volley ball. I used to play golf but it just got to frustrating. I love to flirt and surf the web. I like having a few beers and a good discussion with friends. I like to aggravate my kids a little and see how much I can annoy the wife sometimes. I don't know why I like to do that, it always come back on me.

I have an interesting albeit strange hobby that I like to do with my Dad when we can. <img src=icon_smile_shock.gif border=0 align=middle> He has an antique railcar and when I'm able to I join him and we go riding the dead rail lines in the areas. If you're interested in knowing more about this hobby the link is: www.narcoa.com (or .org I forget which). It's a fun way to spend an afternoon. You get to see different parts of the country you normally wouldn't get to see any other way. Bring a pillow however as those railcars do NOT have any suspension and it gets bumpy sometimes LOL!

I also like to make candles but it's been long time since I've been able to. I make water candles. You fill a large wastebasket or garbage can with cold water. then you melt some wax in a tin can. While that's melting, you glue a voitive candle onto the bottom of a chinette paper bowl. AFter the melted wax is ready you pour it into the bowl and plunge it into the water. Really pretty after it hardens and dries, etc.

Wow, I have never even heard of that sort of thing. Sounds pretty cool, but I guess you have to be really sure the tracks aren't being used!

Glad you posted the link, because I wasn't even sure what you meant until I saw the different cars.

I assume you have one with a motor, not one of those 2 person see-saw things.

Yes, it has a motor. The rails we ride are "dead" ones that the clubs get special permission from the rail road companies that still own then. The clubs maintain the tracks in exchange for permission to ride on them. You get to see some really pretty back country along with some interesting wild life you normally don't get to see up close and nearly personal. Sometimes the tracks have some rough spots and you pop off the tracks. You just stop (abruptly) and everybody gets out and picks it up (they're small) and puts them back on the tracks and then you take off again. It's kind of like a big version of model trains lol!
What we do is ride the rails back and forth (our family is so big we have to do 2-3 trips) and when everyone in the club is back, we all have a big BBQ and then we go back and ride them again. <img src=icon_smile_approve.gif border=0 align=middle>

Sounds pretty cool! On a related subject, they're talking about restoring some sightseeing service on the Adirondack Railway up near where we vacation all the time. They say that the scenery is amazing, the train mostly goes through wilderness, so we're hoping that it's running by this summer.

I bet you get to see lots of cool stuff out there.

That you do Ed. One of the neat things out here in California is that with these old tracks, you can see the shifts in the fault lines. It can literally bend metal tracks! It can also snap the wooden ties between them. It's especially noticable near streams and rivers, hilly areas and terrain change areas. You can be rolling along on a straight stretch and then suddenly jolted because there a sudden bend in the tracks. Makes for some interesting rides LOL! It also is a good lesson for kids in seismic activety and also a good one in erosion as well. Gotta head to work now. I'll talk with you later. Ta.

That sounds awesome! How fast does your railcar go?

As for my hobbies, I like to collect old books, especially old hymnals, church books, bibles, and other religious works.

I bought an old bible at a garage sale one time, and it was a family bible with a handwritten journal of births and deaths in a family from the early 1800's. It was kind of sad, because two or three of the babies whose births were recorded were also written down as having died a few days or weeks later. That bible also had some old newspaper articles in it, and even a few pressed leaves (from trees, I mean)!

I also have bibles where the previous owners (usually pastors) had written detailed notes in the margins.

My oldest is a book printed in 1752. It's still in good shape, but unfortunately it's in French, and I can't read it. I think it's a textbook.

It's a great hobby, because you get to hold something in your hands that was around for over a hundred years, and you wonder who else read it in all that time.

Other hobbies I have are music composition, piano playing, writing novels and inventing board games.

Railcars vary in speed depending on the car and also the terrain. My Dad's had his up to 24 mph going down a small incline. Normally it travels around 20 -22 mph. Railcars are the more modern version of the old handcars that you used to pump either singly or in tandem in a seesaw motion. (that's ment to be clean btw....) They were originally used to inspect the tracks. Now they use pickup trucks with convertible tires on them. they lower one set and you can drive on the streets, raise those and lower the wheels used on the rails and continue on your journey. Faster and more practicle but not nearly as much fun or picturesque.

Your hobby of collecting old books sounds like fun Prof. profitable too. A friend of mine had a rare book business out of his home before he passed away. His son gave away the entire collection knowing what it was but not caring. Very sad.
