Gardening for me to plus I'm right into recycling, I hate rubbish lying around.

I use to ride a bike raced at club level but can't anymore, but I still follow the Tour de France and the cycling news, hope to write a science fiction book one day.

Horse Racing for me, Started 1973 when I put on a bet for a mate it WON at 16/1 and had me hooked. Being interested in Mathematics and Proberbilities had me working on Racing Systems. Had a few that paid their way but hit that Brick wall eventually.
Had some Good winnings over the years 8)

With Betfair coming on the scene and being able to now LAY horses (back them that they will NOT win) has me on a differant direction.
And maybe a Winner ::)

Scratchin, ;D i'm trying to find a 20ft gold chain to pay for the 20 ft yacht, then i could detect and paint where ever i like.  The good days were before the credit crisis, when i had 6ft paintings hanging in foyers, such as Seahaven on Noosa Hastings st.  The gallery shut its doors a couple of years ago, and few more shops in Hastings have shut down and left.  :-\ Bad sign when they shut shops in Hastings, Noosa.  I once won a $5000 award in the Sunday Mail art Comp for this Pelican painting, and won two other awards in the Australian Art magazine. Tonyw, very nice photography. Stick to it, i reckon ;)
