I know we all work long hours etc - but what do we all do outside of our working lives?

I collect and show antique engines...some call me old before my time but I don’t care!

Here’s a short clip of my favourite engine ticking over - a 1915 Crossley G110 single cylinder engine running on propane (used to run on town gas back in the day) I can’t see any engines of today running so well at 103 years old!

It has a bore of 5” and a stroke of 11” bringing the cubic capacity to nigh-on 3.4 litres in a single cylinder.....but it starts reliably with a spin of the flywheel. I’ve got four other engines, I’ll find some video of them running too.

drinking, unsociably. Easily do a bottle of port on a school night and regularly do. Occasionally drink socially but always ends up a bender so try to avoid the trauma.

Keeping the wife happy i.e whatever she wants. Quite like not having to think so that works out OK.

Used to be a professionally hydroponicist but got caught. Really miss building my own rigs etc. Might go back to it and grow chillies or something. I do like curry.

Would like to get back into physical training but I'm all or nothing and 60 hours a week on my business doesn't allow a full training schedule so sod it.
