Reading and writing: I've read over 2000 books mostly in the science fiction and fantasy genres but have also managed to read some of the classics:
Sports: I used to play cricket, tennis and soccer, but as I get older I am simply becoming the best 'watcher' of sports. I still love cricket, rugby, tennis and soccer and now have an interest in American Football.
Family: I love spending time with my family and my 1 year old grandson – I simply cannot think of anything better than quality time with my family.
Career: I am a computer 'expert' working for a very large accountancy firm in their Finance department. I specialize in Microsoft Excel and have created many financial models and worksheets. I love to find new things to do with Excel:
Amateur writer: I love writing and have been writing poetry and stories since I was 10; I would love to say I'm an expert, but I simply don't have enough talent to make it in the big world. I have focused my writing more on articles that hopefully are full of information and are well written and I do make a moderate income doing this.

My 'best' articles – these both won daily prizes for the best Hub in a recent competition:
I love writing and the residual income is a nice bonus for me – I've been successful over the last year or two, but have had a steep learning curve after writing on the web for about ten years. I know I'll never replace my day job, but if the few sheckles I get from writing help to make my life easier then I will continue to write and enjoy.
