    I've got more than I can shake the old proverbial stick at.

    I like to
    • make jewelry
    • design web pages
    • piddle with programming
    • paint
    • read
    • buy books that I don't read
    • organize anything
    • refinish furniture
    I've left something off
    I can sew and scrapbook and garden and other things when needed.

    so what do you do or like to do and don't have time to do.

    I also crochet - or used to. When I broke my wrist a few years ago, it doesn't take long before it knots up (the wrist - not the crochet).

    Genealogy -- it has been fun to dig into the past and take some segments of my family and my wife's family back as far as the 14th Century.

    I know what you are thinking ... given my name, and my interest in genealogy, you are thinking I may be a Mormon.

    Nope, Baptist born and Baptist bred. But, funny thing is, one of the family names (my grandmother's name of origin) is Moorman.
