My #1 hobby is to dance as much as possible ... anyone else into swing dancing? Lindy hop in particular.

And here is my new one. I'm still deciding whether to take this one on track - cabriolets need rollbars on must US tracks :-(

My main one is Pistol shooting. something i started in the British Army and now its much easier to do here than it was in the UK.

Love to read history and politics mainly. Otherwise i like computer games, playstation 2 or PC. I am struggling my way through Baldurs gate II at the moment and alternately playing Manhunt on the PS2. Good fun in a twisted sadistic way but not one for the kiddies. If you liked GTAIII or Vice City or Hitman II you would like it though.

Occasionally i go running as well but i a doubt my wheezing up and down the street counts as a hobby.

regards,

Duncan

A few years back I got into cross stitch... only the cute disney ones. I have quite the gallery of them on the wall now.

I also really enjoy music... esp musicals... broadway shows etc. My favorite being Les Miserables.

I got my private pilots license last Aug and now i'm ploughing my way through the instrument rating much to my wife's despair, i've promised myself to get my ratings before the big move next summer cos I have my eye on a self build and want to go touring, her indoors won't even come flying with me, she prefers commercial flights but you can't land them on our local grass strip so I guess i'm on my own for this one.

I'm a puter geekess!

Graphics and new programs get me excited. I can have 15 things running on my screen and still read my mail!

Send me some pics to edit, touch up or tag!

I am into cross-stitching - although dont have much time to do it these days..

I am also trying to write a book. I love reading and can read all day if I could.

You want extreme? How about Top Thrill Dragster! Over 400ft tall, and 120mph!!! Now that's a thrill!

I'd rather slit my wrists with a rusty blade than get on that coaster, I'm sure it would be less scary.

Right, I'll see if I can find a pic of a rusty razor blade. LOL!
