    Two idiotic tornado warnings in the past week have had us all confined to the basement, but me in my man-cave/train room working with my model railroad. Few more branches down and some power outage but otherwise fine upstairs.

    Many people call doing Artwork a hobby, even though I have worked
    at it for more than 25 years, Animals are my first love, both alive & as
    paintings, I have always been drawn to them, and have always disliked the
    ways the Human animal has found to kill wildlife through out history many times over for pleasure & always for greed..!

    I'm gaga crazy about metal detecting... my lovely partner would leave out the part about the MD! I'm lucky enough to live in an area of the country (northern NJ) where there've been people walking around and dropping shiny objects for many, many years. A few years ago, over time found a 1794 Liberty Cap Large Cent, a CC 1875 Seated Liberty Dime, an 1875 SL Quarter and a few nice Barber Dimes, two blocks from my house! I also like to twist wrenches on my '93 SAAB 900s and am also restoring a 1950's Cape, one side at a time! yes, that's me, on the ladder. Don't like Kindles; I like holding a book in my hands, when I read, so I have a bunch of those. Last but far from least, I like to collect and build model aircraft kits; used to have an operation where I made vacuum-formed plastic model airplane kits to sell to other modellers. Right now, saving up to buy a new detector, to see what I missed; all those places around here, where the good stuff is a little deeper under the sod. I collect Walking Liberty Halves and pre-decimal Great Britain. Thanks for asking!

    CoinTalk friends—

    Thank you for your positive comments on my Civil War genealogy post and my apologies for deleting the content.
    I decided that the information needs more work.

    Following the family tree is absolutely fascinating, it kept me occupied for many years. So long as you are prepared for the shocks as well as the nice surprises.

    Turns out a cousin was Kim Philby, one of the worst double agents in our (UK) history. I found a family photo for another member of my family. They were VERY dark indians. He has never contacted me since. His problem, not mine :D

  18. I forgot to add on this thread the last time: I have an autographed copy of Leonard Nimoy's paperback book: "I Am Not Spock". I found it in a Cleveland bookstore and thought it was a little pricey and the clerk gave me a funny look. It wasn't until I took it home I realized it was autographed. This was the days in the lull before the Motion Pictures came out when evidently Mr. Nimoy (and the rest) suddenly realized how much money he could make by actually being "Mr. Spock".

    Thanks for posting, @Pishpash — as soon as my American Civil War fascination subsides, I’m going to turn my attention to investigating a bit of information that my paternal grandfather used to tell folks. He said that some of his ancestors were Royalists during the American Revolution and when the war was over, the family packed up and went to Canada.
