Laura likes to read, paint, cook, and travel. She enjoys organizing groups such as Bible studies and book groups. Laura was born in Arizona, and has lived in quite a few states.
Tim has a few disparate hobbies such as juggling, snowboarding, and log-splitting. When I was a kid I used to read science fiction by the ton, but unfortunately now the thrill is gone, since I evidently know too much. Whenever I try it I am dismayed by the lack of realism (on the parts that are supposed to be realistic, or at least scientific). Oh well, it's no loss since I subscribe to a few magazines that fill the gap, as well as reading the Boston Globe every day. If you are looking for something to do, try reading some or all of the following magazines: Linux Journal, Skeptical Inquirer, Wired, IEEE Spectrum, IEEE Computer, Scientific American and Perspectives on Science and Christian faith.
I used to read a few more at work before I retired. Now I'll probably stop into the MIT library from time to time to catch up on some of those like Nature, Science, and Communications of the ACM.
Before I retired, I often had a pile of magazines about 6 inches high waiting to be read, and another similar pile of books. I still have those piles (only being retired for one day at this writing) but have firm plans to put a dent in it!
