Hobbies revisited

I'm pretty sure I asked this a few years back but we have new members now so I thought I'd ask again!
I think I can guess Pluscoms.. electricals, techy bits and exciting stories to tell us about but what about everyone else?
What hobbies do you all have?
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Re: Hobbies revisited

Hi Sprite - Photography & Walking (Rambler) - used to be a radio amateur from 1983-2000 (morse code only!). What about your hobbies?

Re: Hobbies revisited

OK... .
not in any particular order or preference....  depends on the time of day, situation, and how much time I have to spare..
Photography, including editing..... short wave radio, including construction of bits and pieces of equipment.... chatting by morse code over the internet... watching music videos on youtube,.... listening to music, ..... reading real books.... driving my car... this forum..... messing about with Linux Mint.... and other stuff with the laptop... Being "Mate"  on the Chichester Canal Trip boat Richmond. .....
there`s probably more, but I haven`t got the time to think of them now....  Cheesy

Re: Hobbies revisited

A lot that are the same as most people, some of which have already been mentioned, others which likely will be. Otherwise, writing. In any case it can often be said that things which I do for pleasure invariably cause me pain.

'Playing' my guitars, reading and a bit of photography.

Re: Hobbies revisited

I play the keyboard, by ear as I can't read music. I also enjoy walking, cliff tops and beaches if lucky enough to afford a holiday or local canals are a favourite. I also love anything techie, gadgets or computer related. I follow Formula One and have a general interest in cars.

I tried that but kept hitting the adjacent keys as well so gave up and learnt music Cheesy
I enjoy video and photo editing, my degree course is more of a hobby - sort of, a bit of cycling (no where near as much as I should), and, of course, participating in this forum Smiley

Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.

Being aware that often I do something for enjoyment and it can end up annoying me (playing a pc game, editing a picture, whatever), it is a sort of pain. Practically, also, I may ride my bike and get a sore arse, or perineum (let's be specific lol). I may take an enjoyable walk on a lovely day with my dearest friend and my hips start to hurt, and so on. They are all very dull things to say, so I just did what I like to do, and wrote. I was also conscious of what else could be read into my sentence. Wink  It's an example of what I like to do with writing: changing the dull into something more interesting. I just love to play on words.
