    Besides reading books and costuming what other hobbies does anyone have.


    for me, I build and fly R/C planesm,build models and paintball. But I think the paintball is more of a sport.


    It's a "know your fanforce groups" topic.

    A few things:

    I'm a certified grammar nazi. It's hobby, BTW.

    I collect hot sauces. Currently, I have more than 500 different bottles.

    I do some landscaping, but only if it involves me getting in over my head. Here's a pic of work I did in my front yard from a couple years ago.

    I'm a domain junkie. I register domains for no real reason. Some of them are actual Web sites.

    I run. Sometimes in the mud. I also lift 2-3 days per week. Racquetball is a developing hobby.

    I shop, but the way my wife and I do it, it could be considered a sport.

    I love rap. I have since my first Fat Boys cassette way back in fourth grade. I'm not entirely thrilled with the direction the genre is heading in the mainstream, but the underground movement is keeping the original art true to its heritage. For more, check out www.the411online.com. It's a little Web site I helped start that gets about 2 million visitors per month.

    I cook a lot. Unless you're baking, recipes are a suggestion, not a mandate. Alton Brown is my god.

    I live a boring life. We spend most of our free time involved with sports for our son Jordan. This weekend he is finishing basketball and he is on a traveling baseball team which has been practicing since the beginning of January.

    I am on the Rock Island County Fairboard and really enjoy helping with the fair each year. It looks like we are going to have Kenny Schrader here on Tuesday of the fair and he is going to race in a couple of the races with a car a local driver is providing.

    We day trip to Galena or Mississippi Palisades park and to Chicago when we can.

    I also paint miniature figurines. I also collect dragons and ducks.

    I also am involved with the local Scott county kennel club and am working on learning how to participate in dog shows. With my dog I am working on obedience and agility training.

    My 7 year old son collects Hot Wheels Monster Jam Trucks. He has over 30 of the 1:64 scale, several of the 1:45 scale and 6 of the 1:24 scale. They are in between a curio cabinet and the wall, in perfect order. When he finishes playing with one he puts back in the same spot. I even have to ask him before I can pick them up. On the off chance we are having someone over and they have kids, he picks them all up and puts them in the closet. He has 1 friend he allows to play with them and only because he gets it when it comes to monster trucks.

    We are even considering going out to Kill Devil Hills NC this year on vacation to see the shop where Gravedigger is from. Plus Dennis Anderson, the owner and main driver has dates he will be there for autographs.

    I collect figures. I used to collect Batman stuff but I grew tired of it. I sold off most of the Bat stuff.

    Non Star Wars hobbies:
    At work I watch the helicopters land-not certain if that qualifies as a hobby but they are fun to watch.

    I volunteer teach for JA. I volunteer at my church. I am working with a group similar to Habitat for Humanity.

    I work on political campaigns-it is about to become the busy season for politics.

    Avid reader of Vince Flynn novels! Go Mitch Go!
