Hobbies you have (not computer ones)?

Postby dedanna1029 » 14 Mar 2010, 23:10

I'm interesting in seeing hobbies that others have, that are not computer or internet-related. I like to make dream catchers. Examples can be found here; it's an 18 inch one I made for my mom.

I also enjoy reading, walking, cooking (once in a while, when I have time), playing board games, and spending time with my kids and grandson.
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

It's not really a "hobby" per say, but I enjoy eating. I might enjoy eating too much, but it has lead me to enjoy cooking. Most recently I've been baking bread. For example, here are some loaves of honey-wheat I baked last night.

It's pretty yummy. I still can't get close to the bread my mother used to bake. It was sweet, almost like cake. Mmm.

Nice job, Mark!

Let's not forget the butter for the bread, either! :)

Well, seeing as my life is almost completely tech-influenced, I'm not sure if this one would count, but I'm a huge gamer (consoles preferably (Non-Microsoft to be more specific))

I think that gaming is accepted. We're just trying to get to know the people here. :)

My hobby is whatever job I am doing at the time, working on Electric, Plumbing, Cars, RC Helicopters, Cooking...

I really suck at computer games :lol:


Cooking is one of favorites. Have a Wok, Grill and other kitchen stuff. I can say that I have a very diverse taste.


One of my favorite wines is Port, a good Portuguese Port after a meal it does wonders. Another is some Sherry Wine with a assortment of cheeses. Manchego is always on my list of cheeses along with Blue Cheese. Sometimes, going to my fave Japanese Stake House, order some grilled freshwater Eel Sushi, warm Sake on the side... One day I wolfed $50 worth of Sushi :lol: :lol: :lol:

Some good hobies there.
I definately am into cheese and a good red wine. I also love italian food. Not much that can beat a Carpaccio and a good Chianti.

well, I enjoy eating good food. That's gotta be a hobby right? :P

My main hobby aside from tinkering with computers would be playing the tabletop strategy game of warhammer 40k. Basically, I build, paint, and then play my armies against other people who do the same using dice. Its a lot of fun. Their site can be seen here - http://www.games-workshop.com

No big on Italian wines, seems not to taste right for me. I like more the stronger Spanish Rioja Tinto. I tried some from California and sure it sucks badly :lol: If you want a nasty wine hangover, get those ;)
