Mike's other interests
My interests have somewhat shifted over the past couple of years.
I used to be heavily interested in cars. It started out of necessity
when I was in grad school, as I had no money. Hence, I learned to fix
cars. This eventually lead to the acquisition of a 72 Triumph TR6. I
did a lot of work to that car, eventually restoring the engine. I also
own an 86 Chevy ElCamino, on which I also performed a lot of
work. Between the two cars, the only thing I never had apart was a
transmission, although, I did put a shift kit into the El.
I love opera. I attended over 50 performances and have over 70
recordings. I also listen to a lot of organ music. One of the reasons
I do so, is because one of my sisters is an organist and we always had
music in the house when we grew up.
If you had a look at my woodworking page, you may have guessed that I
like to read. I particularly am interested in books about american
presidents and literature.
