    I flirt with my nurses, who call themselves "Wife number 1, 2, and 3". That's fun. I've started playing bridge again since it's so easy online with BBO. I write Python scripts, mostly to study genetic data. I'm trying to play Pickleball.

    PC Gamer, beer, birding, and movies. Plus, I love watching sports; especially NFL and UFC.

    Reading history, fishing, shooting trap, playing the trumpet at a very elementary level and watching Netflix DVD's to avoid reality television, except Chopped which is great. During summer I grow as many mammoth sunflowers as I can, usually in large pots. In the fall I collect the stalks which look just like Gandalph's staff. I stick these in corners all over the house and admire them during Michigan winters.

    I'm slowly learning how to really play jazz on my trumpet (my oldest possession! 1959) and enjoy soloing with my wife's trio. (juliemacsings.com)
    Did you know you can play a trumpet when recovering from flap surgery on your back in a Clinitron but you have to swallow your saliva?!
    I also love lushly planted freshwater aquariums of which I have two I tend.
    And I too enjoy a senseless visit to the political forum to see what pathetic (deplorable?) flavor of crap Andy and NRF are serving on any boring day.

    Heh, I've been attempting monster sunflowers for the last few years also. Last year I actually got a Kong Hybrid sunflower to fully mature, that was pretty cool. Normally I have rabbits massacring them or they get weird non-growth. This year I have 9 Kongs still alive. I'm keeping the chicken wire/tomato cage I have on 7 of them a lot longer this time around (rabbits). Hopefully they don't get weak stems from being supported by the cage too much. 2 others are not in ideal locations sun-wise, but hopefully they will do ok. The rabbit kill count is only 3 plants this year, so I'm actually doing well so far, lol. Grass and bushes do well with me for landscaping projects, sunflowers not so much.

    Cool tank! You should relish those flavorful morsels of wisdom being served up in the Politics forum. Think of it as a visit to a 5 star, $250 an entree restaurant
