So obviously we're here because of our shared hobby/passion/necessity. But what else defines you? What are your other passions, interests and hobbies? What do you do for fun when you're not shaving, posting here or working? Do you post on other fora? Do you collect other things?

I'll start. I play and collect guitars, and write songs when the inspiration hits. I'd like to start collecting nice watches but they're a bit pricey so for the present my one and only will have to do. When i retire i'd like to buy a high powered telescope and gaze at the stars. That, and try my hand at painting. I also enjoy the beach.

Well, I used to do a bit of woodworking, but now I spend most of my free time wrangling kids and selling shaving soap.  Our entertainment center is looking a little tired, and we need a new end table, so it might be time to dust off my table saw.

I so admire people who can do this. We have a friend who is remodeling his basement, including all the woodwork, single-handedly!

Before I got sick I was a mechanic at a Pharmaceutical company, I loved to fish and I made Chandeliers. I enjoy the Memphis symphony orchestra and live theater. I adored my two pugs that have now passed on but I still help with the Pug rescue groups when I can. I enjoy cooking, reading, restoring vintage Cadillacs and wet shaving, anything to do with shaving Smile.  
One Piece of advise guys, if your over 50 Please get a colonoscopy, if your younger than that and notice changes, see your doctor. There really is nothing to it and it could save your life, it did mine!

I collect fountain pens, mainly vintage, fence foil, collect Inuit carvings of Musk Ox, and collect modern watches.  SWMBO and I are into art collecting as well, original oils and acrylics mainly and only a few prints and watercolours.  In the winter I Nordic ski, whilst in the non-winter months I work in the garden.

When I lived in Ohio I was big into Orchids.  Then when I moved to NorCal I could not grow them.  So for the past 5 years I gave that up.  Now that I am moving this is a priority of mine, to find a place where I can grow them again.  The search is on!  Orchids are addictive like our little hobby here.  I need to change my location...
