    Let's see.
    I collect Lionel trains and vintage 50s stuff.
    We have about four old Mercedes to restore...it'll probably never get done.
    My wife and I have our radio and tv program.
    We make concerts and events for youth here.
    Watch alot of movies.

    We are making a production studio to edit music videos, our program, and make music cd's. We just got a major piece of our setup today. A big ol sound board w/ 24 channels and 8 track recording output, each with it;s own indiviually controlled volume controls on each channel. It is a huge and intense board made by some guy in England who is supposed to be the big dog wh comes to making professionl boards for live recording or studio recording. I am stoked and cannot wait to to get it set up. it's gona take a week. Once I do I will mix some stuff and post a link for you guys to listen.

    Adreamer should like this, I used to have alot of dreams about doing ministry stuff. After dealing with churches in the 'revival move' for years to work with them to see anything happen, and dealing with nasty church politics and gameplayers and self centered manipulations, we decided to get away from them all until God does something about their crappy attitudes. Next time God gives me a dream he better plan on stepping up to the plate to deliver within the decade, or I don't even wanna know about it. If He wants something, he can tell me 5 minutes beforehand. Until then leave me the hell alone.

    Aahhhh... Careful, there, George!!!.... I have learned alot about people through their dreams.... So much so that they have run off of messageboards out of sheer embarrasment... Even asked if they wanted to know privately... boy were they shocked...


    I understand your point about religion... However, you'd be surprised to know that every dream you have is a story about what you've already experienced... Not only that, very few are prophetic in nature... and if prophetic, two or more must have similar circumstances within the dream "story" to confirm that it is actually of God....

    I don't want to get into the politics of it all because alot of people get turned off about it.... But, man, you'd be surprised....

    I did one for a guy who thought the dream was just a little incident that occurred in Iraq.... Only to find out that this fellow ended up having an affair with one of his friend's girlfriends whom he was warned to stay away from.... Boy-oh-boy.... it took him half a year to show up on the board again....

    My philosophy where dreams are concerned:

    to every man an answer,
    though no man's answer
    can be the same as another's

    Yet....

    without one man's answer
    in all of life....
    History remains....
    Undone....


    I have found this to be certainly true....

    But, I'll save it.... I know... I know... It's a passion... Like koi boarding!!!!

    Let's see:

    1. vintage guitar collector (mostly Gretsch)
    2. O Gauge railroading (and my childhood S-gauge set up, too)
    3. woodworking (I still have all my fingers)

    Jim North has the '55 Chevy that I covet...and would like to give some TLC but frankly I don't need another hobby

    And my latest is horse vet medicine.. comes from living next to a large horse operation complete with a horse vet.

    Now, only if KoiVet gave me time to do all of this...

    Before I got "real" serious about koi, I spend many days(years) playing rugby. I still organize an "old boys" team but the days of strapping on the boots are few and far between. For Adreamer, my reoccurring dream is I'm at a rugby match and I want to go into the game but I can't find my boots.

    I keep a few animals for my son- 2 cornsnakes and a chinchilla. Just got rid of a bearded dragon.

    I live in horse country- Kentucky and I've owned very small percentages(syndicate) of thoroughbred race horses. Thoroughbreds are NOT an investment.

    I do some gardening, would to have more bonsai and really understand how to take care of them. But the koi consume a lot of time and I do significant travel that is koi related.
