    So, since The Parson set this up, why don't we see what we do in our off-time.

    I've always been into model railroads, but our current house does not really afford me any room to get into that at the moment. I used to be a more avid backyard astronomer. I still occasionally dabble with my boys and their Lego. A fair bit of time is taken up on some fora and reading blogs. I've been kind of boring otherwise.

    DaniH You're probably fine.

    I've been a gamer since the days of Pong, pretty much. I've dabbled in consoles off and on but PC has always been my first love (Commodore 64, anyone?). I really enjoy MMORPGs and have gotten heavily into City of Heroes, World of Warcraft, and Elder Scrolls Online. Offline I just play regular RPGs, my favorite being Skyrim (an Elder Scrolls game also). I use our big screen TV as my computer monitor, because watching TV is definitely NOT one of my hobbies.

    I also make soap, my own skin care, love herbalism and home remedies, as well as essential oils which I use with enthusiasm in all of my products (although I'm not a fanatic like some).

    I've been a voracious reader since I was 5 years old, and love to write (and don't we all?). Religion and theology are my passion and I read mostly nonfiction --- books, articles ... anything I can get my hands on, really, about whatever subject that fascinates me at the time.

    I got a camera for Christmas in 2015 and have been an avid hobbyist photographer since I took my first picture with it.

    Hubby and I are part of a medieval re-creation group that's very into sword fighting (bamboo, rapier, and steel/heavy armor), archery, and arts & sciences, medieval style. It's a nationwide organization called the Adrian Empire. I serve as the chronicler of our local chapter (meaning I take all the pictures :D).

    Reading and golf, when I have time, which is not nearly often enough.

    My wife and I keep a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle going almost constantly

    I haven't tried golf yet. And I'm afraid too. I may get addicted.

    Why'd you stop riding? Or just not as much now.

    I haven't had a rapier in my hand since I was a teen. Looks like you're going in for the Coup lance'.

    As long as you are at least 7 yards away, S&W beats rapier.

    Is it just the angle or are you actually grabbing the opponent's rapier?

    My main hobbies are reading and singing. Read a lot. The community choir I sing with will be starting back up soon. Do have a couple games on Facebook that I play.
