You might note as we go through the days that there are virtually no births listed in recent times.  This is simply because for privacy of those individuals, I have chosen to not list information for people still living.  So you see deaths, but not births or marriages or other items.
In fact, today is my brother's birthday, so if you're reading this, Happy birthday Mitch!

SNGF - You Mean I Have A Life?!

It's Saturday again, and that means time again for Randy Seaver's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun!

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

* Tell us about your "other" hobbies or interests outside of genealogy and family history research, writing, speaking, etc.  Be mindful of your family's privacy, though!

* Write a blog post of your own, respond with a comment to this post, or write a Facebook status post or a Google+ Stream post.

Here's mine:

I am an IT professional.  Like most of those, many of my hobbies are technology related.  I like to play computer games.  Currently, I'm playing Counterstrike: Global Offensive and Guild Wars 2 as my main gaming time sinks.  I also spend some time with various social media outlets, such as Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.   Oh, and there's this blog I write from time to time...

When I'm not using computers, I enjoy photography (now digital, of course) and reading.  I was a Navy Photographer's Mate from 1987-1992, so I'm trained and experienced.  That said, doing that in the Navy burned me out on taking pictures for a long time after.  However, I've been back into it again for some time now, and enjoy taking landscapes more than anything else.  I tend to document places I go, as you could verify by asking my family members.  They often end up waiting for me to finish shooting and catch up.

I generally enjoy reading science fiction and fantasy for recreation.  I do read books and articles on new technology quite often as well.  

Other than that, I occasionally go out to catch friends who play in bands, or the occasional movie  I'm a strong introvert, so I tend to stay in more than I go out.  And that about sums me up.
