[quote="bonsaikc"]Bonsai! http://bonsaikc.com



Bonsai are cool, I just never had the patience. We did landscaping for the last 15 years and our favorite tree was Japanese Maples, mostly the breeds with shapes like bonsai. Most of the ones we have are in pots but a few are planted, expensive suckers even wholesale. Like giant bonsai, without all the trimming. Very Happy

Since everyone likes pic's....

The little speaker on the right side is one of 6 in that room for home theater.

It's sitting on a pair of bass bins each with a 15" driver, the big black thing is the midrange and tweeter. To give you an idea of the size the bass bins are 6' wide. The 2 Ch is active crossovers and each channel is bia-amped.
These are in each front L & R corner of the room for 2 Channel. Sounds great. Very Happy

Photography.

My camera gear easily exceeds the value of my car by a factor of two, and only because I recently got a new (to me) used car. Before that it was probably more like 8x.

I would have thought the trout would have been along the shore also ?

Pit Boss, Thank You for the pic that is true Craftsmanship right there. Very Happy Very nice work indeed. Very Happy

dtel, We fish in 1' to 2' of water the boat is positioned about 20' to 40' off the bank. The Trout run a bit deeper around here. A lot of times Debbie will throw a trailer line with a popping cork out the back of the boat with a live shrimp on it and tag a trout but we do not mess with them a lot.

I love photography, got away from it for probably 10 years then switched to digital about 5 years ago after playing with a friends pro camera, he did wedding pic's.

After playing with his I got the bug again and went shopping for a digital, ended up with a Nikon D-80. I love it because you can use it totally manually like the old cameras. I would like to get a better one but they are really expensive. I only have two lens's 18-135 and a 70-300, would like some prime lens's but was to much $, a little 55 or so mm at 1.2 or 1.8 might be affordable used ?

To many projects going on at one time is the big problem. Wink

Pitt Boss, that is some really nice looking poles, it must take alot of patience to make something like that.

I use to fish every Sat and Sunday when we lived in South Louisiana, we moved to Mississippi and I pretty much quit, maby a little freshwater only, or with the Grandkids in the back yard 1.5 acre pond with perch and bass.

Saltwater is much more fun to me, trout, redfish and flounder was what we fished the most. We would float across oyster beds for trout with lures mostly. For the reds and bigger trout live bait on a sliding sinker worked great. I would love to start fishing again but I sold the boat, just as well, now with the cost of gas and bait you could go to a restaurant and be guaranteed fish, not the same Embarassed but much more money now to fish.

Where to start??? There's so many..... Laughing

RC Cars
Car Audio
Dirt Track Racing (Modifieds, WoO Sprints, UMP Late Models)
Fixing up an old house
BBQ
Camping
Kids Sports (Wrestling and Football)

It's a wonder I can get anything done(or have any money to do it)........

Here's our latest venture with Camping; at least I don't have to own a big Diesel truck anymore (another money pit). Shocked
