It is a new governament scheme to earn money, thinking about it 50pence, actually being bothered to do it £1 and being stupid enough to get caught £XXXXX.

Sorry guess I am still tired. Hobbies spent 20 years standing in cold wet fields looking at the back ends of horses as first aid duty officer, they think I am getting on a bit now so they let me do nice inside duties. Other than that I do a variety of craft projects, just do not ask me to do sewing.

After my depressing (pre-music) job history (see "What do you do" thread) I discovered that my hobbies were mostly the only things I was willing to do to earn a living. So, leather carving....free lance cartooning and music. Those I get payed for.

Non-paying hobbies: Inventing prototypes (too lazy to follow through on them). Lifetime fascination with bizzare and miniscule human behavioural traits.(mine, as well as others) Both give me HUGE enjoyment! Jeez, over the last three years...MUDCAT as well!

I decorate cakes. Somehow, they often have a musical theme. I've done a guitar with licorice strings and a piano (well, four octaves -full size- of a keyboard, anyhow, with Kit Kat bars for the black keys and white chocolate for the white keys).

Since I work at the Zoo, Ive also done cakes shaped like most of the animals. My cakes are raffled off at our annual fund-raiser, but since I don't get the money, I guess that means it's still a hobby.

I used to do counted-cross stitch, usually my own designs, but don't seem to make much time for that anymore. Now my "fabric art" is limited to applique, mostly to cover stains on my sweatshirts and make them wearable again.

Mudcat seems to be one of them.

Built many plastic models over the years, but not much lately cos my eyesight isn't so good for close work, and I guess I just got burnt out on it after awhile anyway.

Have been sailing radio controlled sailboats. Very nice way to spend a couple of hours, especially if you've got some companions out there to sail there boats along with yours. Impromptu races are great fun.

Music for me was a passion for many years, but not something I expected to earn a living from...so maybe you could call that a hobby too...I don't know.

Yakking about World War II is also a hobby of mine. Don't ask me why. I'm very antiwar by nature.

Hey, campfire, I used to do cross-stitch too! I only made one design of my own that was any good: a Calvin and Hobbes thing. It was very challenging, and came out looking pretty good if I say so myself.

Nowadays I read a lot, and work in the garden, and work re-landscaping the front yard. And mudcat, of course.

Hey Dave, Neato! I used to do knots and splices too, but that was many years ago, when I wanted to be a seagull and had this unrequited dream that someday I was going to own a sailboat. But after 25 years without much leisure time, the idea sort of faded. Can't even remember the names of all of them now. What is the splice called that has the big lump on the end? One thing I do remember is that there is a knot called a Catspaw.

Do you have any photos you can post?

I took a course in biological illustration a few years ago and have a good stereo microscope on order finally (it was an ebay thing, so hopefully I'm not getting screwed). If everything turns out OK, I'll finally be able to proceed with my hobby and continue to do stuff like this

Hi john in hull

I have tried taking some landscape pictures, as well. However, the only one that ever came out well was when I tried to take one of our cherry tree in bloom. I slipped on the wet grass as I clicked the shutter. It came out looking like an impressionist painting.

Aside from scanning Mudcat and occasinally comenting in a thread, my principal hobby is model railroading, HO Scale, paticularly the railroads that were active in Northeastern Pennsylvania in the 1950s and 60s.

A seconday hobby of mine is tracing our family history. So far I have identified three of my paternal great grandparents' birth years and arrivals in the USA, the fourth was born here. Have also traced some of my maternal family and my wife's family, with lesser degrees of success.

For a long time, I had the idea of photographing interesting old doors...of which there are many in Ottawa.

Finally, on Saturday, I volunteered my wife (who is a camera bug) to come with me ...after breakfast at the Glebe Café-the bribe!-

We spent a couple of hours taking photos...and meeting some interesting people, who wanted to know *why?*

I'm not sure why---i just like interesting doors, and it seems that every renovation simply discards some really nice ones....so I thought I would start making a picture record of the ones that are left,before they disappear!

We met an interesting Scot lady who was part of a volunteer gardening crew at a Church building. She told us something of the history of the building, when she found out what we were doing. And we talked to an Egyptian man who coincidentally, likes to photograph doors. He said when he was last in Cairo for a visit, he was doing just that. People were offering him their beautiful carved old front doors, for the equivalent of 10$us! It seems in modern Egypt they all want brand new (boring)doors.

Other interesting hobbies: I seem to collect squirrels. They hang around my birdfeeders, and I have fed them peanuts for years. If I leave the screen door open, they come in, reminding me it's feeding time...

Crafts, I'm making and selling driftwood mobiles just now, and have put an order in for some willow to make plant supports and stuff.
Wine, jam and pickle making.
At the moment I'm working on reinstating the town's market charter, so I can start selling all the stuff I've bought in junk shops, so I can go and look for more!!

I love building plastic models. I used to spend a lot of my time from 14-17 building them, but fell out of it once we got back to the states. Since I'm slacking off for the summer, I decided to get back into it again. I'm finally finding the models that I lusted over as a teenage...WWII German armor. So far I've got a Sdfkz 251/1, StuG IV, Pzkpf II Ausf G, a Pak40/L46, plus so figures. Today I just bought a Kubelwagen Pkw K1 Type 82 and some German machine gun troops which I am building as I speak. I also was painting a Grumman Wildcat today, and have the Enterprise 1701-D and a B-52 waiting in th wings. What next? Either a Marder or a Panzer Panther.

I find it hard to divide hobbies from an active business. I am a silversmith, I learned from my Dad and I am teaching my sons and daughter. I often have bracelets in the auction for mudcat and I have another to offer but my scanner went belly up so I am sunk in regards to sending a picture just now.

I also make wooden dolls.

I collect original comic and cartoon art as well as comic books old and recent. (Would love to see a scan of one or two of Rick's cartoons)

I have a fine collection of antique fishing tackle, one or two muzzle loaders.

And I perform and collect folk music!

John in Hull,

You may regard yourself as a "newbie", but, you're inspiring some thought provoking threads mate! Take your camera with you on delivery runs - somehow I think you could record some wonderful Hull "Folk History" from 2001.

Photography used to be a hobby - Peg - where did you get your Spotmatic from? My Pentax S1 (1960) is getting tired and needs an upgrade. I even took snapshots of a few doors decades back. RichM - about 10 years back there was a neat poster of doors in Wellington (NZ) - don't think I'll have much luck, but will try to track it down.

JiH, Murray will probably have a different definition of "syntax", but I reckon it's a Government inspired rake-off on houses of ill-repute...

Sings...

Me mother's a bawdy house keeper,
Me father sells illicit gin

Falls over in drunken stupor....

Anyway.... Hobbies... Yeah... #1 is

Living - never been paid for it yet.

Others indulged in, over the last half-century, would include all those mentioned above, apart from Belly Dancing - not a pretty sight, in my case. Mind you, I could do a damned good Zorba's Dance - here's a toast to Anthony Quinn ..;)

Ummm....

Think I've had a couple of other "Hobbies" - like woodwork - which reminds me of "Hobbies" fretsaws and magazine. Jigsaw Puzzles and... Aaarrrgghh...

I'll shut up

Damn! I was just running over in my mind what I've done as hobbies in the past and what I do now — which is almost nothing — and realized I must be getting old.

I used to fly and drive some competition (sports car gymkhanas). Gave up both to save money to get married. Bad swap. I used to swim and ski a lot but haven't done either in years. Also got into photography, complete with darkroom and, for a while, a studio. That progressed to a second job for a while and then circumstances changed and I quit and sold off most of my equipment.

Now I like working on home and garden projects — well, sometimes — and poke around for antiques and tour Civil War battlefields. I also play guitar (mostly blues), Autoharp (mostly old-timey and fiddle tunes) and a little piano (mostly country).

If the arthritis keeps progressing at its present rate, pretty soon I'll be a complete has-been.

My main hobby is making salt dough models in order to avoid doing as much housework as possible. (To keep it at this level of output I have to now and again attend craft fairs to sell it). Of course if the output drops (as often happens due to other commitments) then there's the panic stage when a fair is looming. And I make green men out of it too, Clinton!

I would collect 19th century Staffordshire pottery if my finances would permit me; so instead I am a somewhat eclectic collector of things that just take my fancy.

I try to be a cottage gardener as far as my tiny (but mainly walled) lousy-soiled garden will let me.

I have been a morris dancer for nearly 18 years, but now mainly play for the side.

I alway associated the word with horse "trials" - a quick AV search shows it's tied up with car "racing". And, maybe general competetive sports...

I see the origin of the term as in India ca mid-1800s - sort of a Horsey game to play when you didn't have enough riders for a couple of Polo teams. Like, you'd ride flat tack on your horse, round a tight course. Object - pick up "souvenirs" from the ground - punt balls through hoops etc,,,

Is a motor gymkhana roughly the same?

Cheers - Sam

David- the arthritis is a bugger, isn't it? It;s mostly in my feet at the moment, which limits mobility until the painkillers kick in!
John in Hull, a potager garden is one belonging to someone who doesn't like planting veg. in neat rows. Each raised bed has a mixture of herbs, veg, and the odd flower. I can go and pick what I need for meals as it is ready. Lettuce and mange-tout peas in the polytunnel at the moment. Stir-fry and salad for tea tonight!
Cheers, Bron.

Hello, everyone. . . am just back home to my little town in Lorraine from a month and a half in central France. I don't know if any of you will consider hybridizing irises an interesting hobby or not, but that's what I do when I'm not doing other garden chores, translating French into English, playing music, singing and so on. If there are folks who would like to see some of the irises I've created, you can send me a personal message and I'll be more than happy to send them along, unless someone can tell me another way to send the photos so anyone can see them on the site. . . ?

cheers,

Aux

Sam,

I got the Spotmatic at a camera shop in Harvard Square Cambridge. Interesting story. I was looking at the model the salesperson gave me, after I said I wanted an older Pentax that was mostly if not entirely manual, and a guy was behind me in line listening politely to what she said and looking at the camera. I was aware he was there and turned and said "If you need her to help you go ahead, I am just looking at this." And he said "I have one of those, it's great," and then explained that one had to be careful about finding a supply for batteries as they did not make the old mercury batteries anymore and sometimes the new zinc ones made specially for old cameras were hard to find. By this time I was realizing this guy's face was very familiar. He also said he had actually come in there to get batteries for his Spotmatic! The saleswoman pointed to where he could get them in the next room. he was apparently not in too much of a hurry and we continued to chat about the camera. I explained that I had not owned a camera in several years and was replacing one that had been stolen and decided a vintage camera would be nice. He said his had also been stolen many years ago, but then he got another one just like it. Finally I had to ask "Hey you look so familiar, are you famous or something?" I expected him to say, "Yeah, I do the weather on Channel 5," or some such thing, and he said "Do you ever watch 60 MINUTES?" I looked right at him and said "Oh my gosh, you're Steve Kroft! I love your show, etc." I asked him what he was doing in Cambridge and he mentioned some meeting at Harvard. He then told me about he had bought his camera just before he went to Vietnam and used it over there. He went to get his batteries, at which point I decided I had to get this camera, the coincidence and significance of the encounter was just too much. The whole outfit cost about $300, more than I wanted to spend, but they threw in a $20 book on how to use vintage Pentax cameras for free. As Steve left the store he clapped me on the shoulder and said "Enjoy that camera! You'll love it." I said "Steve, you're the man!" He smiled and waved and left.

:) It is a great camera. I do not fully know how to use it yet and my first experimental roll of film (shooting kittens in the sunlit porch) was not too successful, but the camera folk said they'd help me with it. There is no light reading instrument that is automatic (either that or the battery is not properly installed) so I need some help with that, too, as I am used to at least having something which offers what setting you should use with existing light conditions.

Aux,

I love irises (have some very old ones in my yard that I now leave behind; I think I shall dig some of them up and bring them to my new place) and never knew they could be hybridized. How interesting! Do they retain their fragarnce when this is done, or, like hybridized roses, do they lose most of that?

Hi, Peg; until about eight years ago, I didn't know anything about hybridizing irises--in fact, I simply hadn't realised how all the new ones that come out in catalogs every year come into existence. I have always loved irises, but just had never thought about how new ones are created.

What happened was that I had gone to buy a few new varieties at a specialist horticultural place in central France (Cayeux) and, while I was there, saw a man walking around poking at different flowers with parts of other flowers and asked him what he was doing. He patiently explained that what he was doing was hybridizing and told me that anyone can have a go at it and showed me how to go about fertilising a flower.

I am now into my fifth year of hybridizing and enjoyed the second major bloom of my new plants this year (takes three years from the time you fertilise the flower till you see the results of all your hard work). Believe me, there's a big thrill in seeing a unique new iris flower for the first time!

cheers,

Aux

Sorry, forgot to answer your question, Peg. irises all seem to have their own unique perfume, though a majority will have what we call "flowery/sweet" fragrance. However, here are some that smell like lily of the valley, vanilla, mandarine or even cocoa powder!

I also do Renaissance and Dickens Faires, and probably any other sort of re-enacting that comes my way. And of course music. I have just aquired a lute-backed guitar to use at Renaissance Faires, so there are two intersecting.
