Nothing else for me....I'm too scared to get involved in another hobby, mainly cos if I do I would neglect anything else altogether, like my fish and I have spent too much money to lose interest.

Just how I work, not bright enough to focus on 2 things I guess....altho this bonsai thing does appeal to me somewhat

A bit on the Petrol Head side, mess around with PC's a bit, did spin a few records professionally but gave that up for the love of KOI. But I didn't loose my passion for music, just the late nights... or Shall I say early mornings alien Then like to build a meal every now and then... Italian.. what can I say Very Happy

Want to take up golf again and my course is coming on. 15 000 squares of lawn done and waiting for a bit warmer weather to start with the greens. 4 under cover building block driving range tee off's protected against the wet and windy Cape almost done and 6 outdoor tee off's.

Bought a scrambler a few weeks ago but discovered that I am not as young anymore. My back is taking the punch on the off road. Will have to trade it in for a damn golf cart and realize that I am old, LOL

My other passion, 4x4 trips, although I have not been on a good one lately.

If you want to use it for “family photos” or “casual photography” only, then I suggest that you get a Canon Power Shot SX 30 is. This camera has a fix lens with a zoom up-to 820mm with a starting F-stop of 2,8 with all the settings from Auto, Aperture-priority, Programme-Mode, Shutter-priority to Manual as well as a Scene and motion picture mode.
It is a very good camera for a beginner and value for money. You should pick it up for less then
