I am curious what hobbies others are practicing.

I find myself without one, and am curious what others are doing. I find myself gravitating towards building electronics (using led'*, laser diodes, etc). Also picked up a couple Nerf guns, and those look to be plenty of fun also

Pics of your accomplishments are also welcome.

i try to work on my cars or quads most times. during the winter sometimes i build a model car. of course those nerf guns are a blast, it gives a good excuse to play with the kid. i got a hail storm and a couple of the ten shooter things. the electronics of any kind i get sick of when you do that at work thats the last thing you want to be involved with at home

Working on cars and keeping my yard looking nice. I work in an office environment so getting my hands dirty on the weekends is a welcome relief.
