gardenweb and oldhouseweb are about the only two other places I visit as far as forums. I used to visit some automotive forums, but the local one here sucks now and the other main one I used to use got too snotty (it was a specific car forum and they just let people get too uppity about their cars, which weren't really anything particularly special), plus it was sold a few times and after the first owner, I haven't much cared for the people that owned it. I thought the current owner, a long time member that we always got along with, would change things more, but it doesn't seem that way. I find I have limited patience with people and just don't want to be around certain groups that make me want to spout my mouth off, lol. I've developed a liking for pinterest for that reason. Look at cool pics, put them all together (omg, so many great recipies also!!) and no interation required. I'm pretty varied in interests, although the Cottage and a previous resto project ate into pretty much all of our extra time. Lately I'm just happy being home in front of the stove! I do enjoy photography, architectural salvage, day trips to see neat places (like Chimney Bluffs out by Sodus Bay), gardening, and for sure, walking on our beach (which in turn leads to beach combing, I have a pretty big collection of beach glass).
