    For me, I have a couple of little ones that keep me busy when I am not working or doing photography, which is a second job, but also a hell of a lot of fun. I dabble in all kinds of aviation stuff, hanging around museums and airports. Some days, I just grab the camera and wander to find something interesting to take pictures of.

    Once in a while, I pick up the guitar and play again. I also like to BBQ and tinker around with home improvement projects.

    Outside of my work, I'm an executive board member for the NJ Animal Control Assoc. so I go to alot of meetings and help spread the word and work on new animal laws for NJ.

    I'm also a shop steward with my local Union and on the Political Action Commitee and spend some time with that - I'm the fly in the ointment there, so to speak! :)

    I also have dreams of getting published one day -have written some horror stories and currently working on a day-by-day of the Luftwaffe but that is so challenging its just become something to do after 6 years.

    And then there are my kids that I try to educate and expand their little minds by doing things and going places.

    And I read alot.

    My full time job takes up most of my normal day. After work I have my Japanese maples, trying to learn to graft the cultivars, the greenhouse where I kinda mess with cacti, geraniums, ivy geranuims, green and purple
    shamrocks, and other small plants. I build balsa/tissue models and I like to
    read about WW-II. And, of course, the friends I have made here......

    Photography and target shooting are my main pastimes and birdwatching with my wife. Or to be more precise, I carry the gear and consider it a walk in the country, while she does the birdwatching.

    Ive got 2 young boys, aged 6 7, and a beautiful wife that take up the balance of my time when Im not here.... I read some when I can, usually in the sh!tter, build on my models, watch TV and unwind with my Bride....

    I follow Syracuse Lacrosse and the New York Islanders, shoot some Archery when I can, get the odd day of fishing in and go to the beach as often as the Sun God allows us to.... The boys are becoming regular tadpoles now...

    Oh, and did I mention having as much sex as my libido allows???
