    What other hobbies you into besides WW2 aviation or aviation in general? My actual favorite hobby is stock car racing. Finallt getting back into this year after 7 years out of it. Also into Classic Battletech and History in general. Oh and model aircraft.

    VB stands for Visual Basic, I think.

    documental movies,
    post stamps,
    some others.

    Besides modelling and history, I collect Ford Mustang toy cars, like Matchbox, Johnny Lightning, etc. Have a pretty good collection. Also collect old movies B/W like early Alfred Hitchcock, Bogart, Cary Grant, etc. Used to be VHS but Its been DVDs past few years.

    And lastly, I collect Philadelphia Eagles football stuff. Try to stay away from the chintzy crap.

    I have a huge general knowledge and a lot of stuff gets my attention and then I must know everything about it, but mostly I love Games, console and PC and then I love to design my own Battleships just for the fun of it.

    Drinking hurts somewhere period. But it's always the next day when you feel the pain. It's either "Turn that damn sun off,it's tooloud right now" or as one looks into the wallet, "Now where did all the money go.......oh.....yeah.....damn". OR as you tap the woman next to you when you wake up, "Who the hell are you and what are you doing in my bed." She says , "You brought me to your place from the bar last night and ..well ... you know.". And then you say, " Oh ....yeah.......... damn."
