MY HOBBIES AND PASTIMES
Hmmm - well my favorite has got to be music
- cause you can
listen to music while doing anything!! My musical tastes widely vary.
They include Contemorary christian, Big Band, Pop,
40's music, New Country
50/60's music and several other types.
I love to make my own music as well.
I play the drums, guitar and sing.
Of course, not all three at the same time, lol.
I like to watch documentaries and good movies.
My favorite movie,
"That Thing You Do" features a drummer and the 1960's band, The Wonders.
The group is catapulted to fame
when their signature tune,"That Thing You Do"
skyrockets to the top of the charts. Tom Hanks
wrote and directed
this big-hearted comedy.
I also have many internet related interests. I enjoy creating web pages,
researching things, surfing for fun and chatting on the net.
I've met a lot of great friends on the internet. I introduce my best buddies in
THE LIVING ROOM.
I'm a train enthusiest. If I had the space, I would construct a miniature Ho-scale town
and railway with all the trimmings. Right now, I'm working on a large 3-D puzzle
of The Orient Express from the 1920's. I also have an engine and coal car displayed
on top of my monitor.
I enjoy other things too - biking, writing and of course spending
time with family and friends.
WHERE DO I LIVE?
Well, I could say that I live on the internet. But, that's not quite accurate, lol.
I Live in Canada. And no, I don't live in an igloo - ha, ha.
I think it's funny how some folks who've never been to Canada think we have snow
all year round. While it's true that we are in the north, the entire country varies
widely in it's weather. I know, you really wanted a lesson on Canadian weather
didn't you, lol.
Canada's name comes from the word,
"Kanata", a Huron-Iroquois word that means "village".
Interesting trivia huh? - Considering Canada's population today is close to 30 million.
Canada is a multicultural country. The earliest settlers were from Scotland,
Ireland, France and England. These places
are all represented in Canada's coat of arms.
In 1867, Canada became a country.
The Maple Leaf became the most well known
Canadian symbol - it's on our flag.
