Not familiar with that one.

Perhaps I hadn't posted mine up before? Don't recall any comments about it.

My dad regularly had difficulty convincing his clients to pay him, which always confused me, since his job was to get them money.

Do you want more money?

Then keep paying him!

In your case, I really hope you would not have that difficulty.

Lately my work and kids keep me from hobbies. But, my hobbies patiently wait for me to return.

Building a biplane
Flying airplanes
Riding motorcycles
Riding bicycles
Play piano and guitar
I fix computers and cars out of necessity. It is fun when I do it and I'm pretty good. (Some fix cars and computers on purpose.)
Drink dark beer!

I guess that you could ask for ransom--payment up front.

My brewing days were mostly between 18-20 years old. I could legally purchase the brewing supplies, but not the beer.

Other hobbies:

Rock climbing
Motorcycle track days
Scuba
Electronics
Home improvement
Frugality/Efficiency
Camping
Snowshoeing
Travel

Surprisingly not that hard. Most of the local brewers make a in house version of proper strength that can be obtained at a State liquor store or at a restaurant with a full bar. Even the grocery store obtainable ones at 3.2 are pretty tasty.

Local brew supply stores are also popular for the reason you state. Home-brew...another hobby I don't have time to take up....

Tell your wife good luck!
If you move here PM me and we can go find the best dark options.

Hobby, turned vocation turned hobby again is flying. All the gas I save hypermiling goes into the airplane.

We have a 59 cessna 172 and I have access to an earlier cessna 170 and 180 now that I have gotten my tail-wheel rating. We use the planes for fun, hunting, and a fair bit of travel around the state as roads are not always an option

Also shooting, and handloading. It's very relaxing and a bit zen.

a bit of electronics, (built my first robot a few months ago)

Started brewing cider. Just finished (drinking) my 3rd batch. Turned out very good.
