    Alright, Programming, Wood Craft, Astronomy, Modeling, Mathematics,  Painting, Architecture,  Target Shooting, Video Gaming, Chess, and Table-Top gaming are not enough, I have decided to add "Horology" to the list....(actually its always been on the list, I just never acknowledged it)

    IE Longcase Mechanical Clocks (Grandfather-Type), with their movements, chimes, and sounds they make have always fascinated me.   

    My great grandmother (mom's side) had one such clock that I could just sit in front of for hours as a kid.  I am not sure of its whereabouts now, but I hope it is being taken care of.

    My grandfather has had an older Hermle wall-clock that is actually something he cobbled together from salvaged parts.  Currently it doesn't work, and I desperately want to fix it, but that's prolly not going to happen.  Kind of infuriates me but such is life...
