Hobbies and extracurricular interests.
I have too many hobbies. Here are my current favorites:
Photography. I began this hobby many years ago with a Sears SLR (Yashica). I quickly moved up to the Canon F-1. I recently bought a Canon 40D and I am enjoying the challenge of making good digital photographs.
Piano. Semi-retired piano professor Dr. Harold Thompson is a constant source of inspiration and encouragement.
Freethought: Check out Cohen and Ingersoll
I am a member of American Atheists.
French: I like almost everything French (salad dressing being one of the exceptions): the language, the people, Francis Cabrel, Obelix, Carrefour, l’IAS, CESR, un bon pain de campagne, Emmanuelle Beart....
