    For me...

    Playing electric and acoustic guitar
    Homebrewing (Yes, beer!)
    Hiking (NH Mountains are my favorite)
    Attending concerts (Look for me at your local Pearl Jam or My Morning Jacket concerts)
    Model airplanes (I know its dorky but I'm a WWII plane nerd)
    Photography
    Kayaking/Canoeing

    I like to cook.
    I build Terrariums/Vivariums.
    Keep small tropical lizards.
    Collect tropical plants.
    Keep tropical aquariums.
    Collect Japanese swords, all types of knives, and hatchets.....that I never use!
    Collect guns/*****s. (very expensive hobby so I only have 4 in 6 years of collecting )
    and even though its last on the list its #1, I LOVE spending time with my daughters
    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I've been playing it since my freshman year of high school. I've gotten kind of rusty but I can still play it.

    The impressionist exhibit is my favorite one from the Art Institute. I can spend hours in there and never get bored.

    I can't have many hobbies as I get overwhelmed in having interest in many things.
    Besides cycling, I'm into hiking and grilling. That's all.
