My Fun Stuff.
I am retired, and I prefer NOT to use the term WORK. I really enjoyed my career and don't think I would have traded it for anything else. So enough about this subject and I prefer to think of all the many things I do today as fun stuff.
Since retiring, I still enjoy my ham radio hobby and do get on from time-to-time chasing DX, operating a bit in contests and working a bit on the newer digital modes.
About 1990 is started to trace my family tree, genealogy. and most days I spend many hours researching. It is a never ending challenge but a lot of fun and sometimes frustrating.
In the past year we have joined the local astronomy club and are enjoying it very much. Another steep learning curve with all the facets of viewing the night sky. Just getting into attempting to take some pictures of the night sky......not just a click and shoot thing as it is today with most cell phones. Another big challenge!
Great astronomy websites: Saint John Astronomy Club; http://sjastronomy.ca
Also Astronomy By The Bay; http://sjastronomy.ca/astronomy-by-the-bay
One of my first attempts at taking a photo of the moon is below.
Let me tell you I am never bored.
More to come.
