* Wargaming: I enjoy playing computer based wargames such as Steel Panthers, TOAW I & II and Panzer General. Here is a site that has all kinds of wargaming links and info grognard*.

* Wood & Metal working: I have an old one room school house on our property which has been converted into a workshop. My son and I compete constantly for space. He works on his cars, and I putter around with the project of the day. The project of the day could be welding a broken part on a piece of equipment, making a table leg on the lathe, or one of many honey-do projects. My son and I like to tinker and make some of own stuff from scratch. It gives us something to do and keeps us out of trouble.

Here is a good metal working site: Metal.

I don't have a favorite wood working site - yet. I get my ideas from the books I check out at the local library.

Reading Science Fiction has also been a favorite passtime.  One of my favorite books growing up was:

 If you have time, check the book out of the library, it is a good read. Plus the movie almost always bears only superficial resemblance to the book.  As an example - no powered body armor in the movie   Remember: Service guarantees Citizenshp

The movie had very little resemblance to the book. but microprose has put out a Starship Trooper Game . The demo wasn't too bad. So I bought the game and like it so far.

A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently and die gallantly. Specialization is for insects." - Robert A. Heinlein (Author of StarShip Troopers)

Traveller - a Role Playing Game from the 80's. My children have rediscovered this game and we play occasionally on the weekends.


Paintball:  I enjoy playing paintball and so do my daughters.  We play against friends on our 32 acre farm. contact me ahead  of time to schedule a visit. Most recently I have become interested in big games and scenario games. Paintball stuff My place, local paintball links, etc.
