Hey gang, I think by now we've figured out that we're all a bunch of gung-ho reporters who enjoy what we do in the profession. But what do we enjoy doing outside of reporting? For instance, do you have a favorite wine or a particular type of food? Are you an artist or a musician?

I'll start things off. I play drums in a pipe and drum band. I also play golf, and enjoy bike riding. My favorite sports teams are the New York Yankees for baseball; The New York Jets and Giants for football; and the New York Rangers for hockey. I've tried tennis and I've done some rock climbing. My wife and I are active in my son's school. I'm also active in my high school's alumni association. As a family, we enjoy traveling and playing in the park.

So, I've thrown my hat in the ring. Who's next?

I hope it's not too late to share. I am a volunteer mom at my youngest son's school and a court reporting student that just made it to qualifiers! I am a very proud mom of three boys. My twins, Trevor and Zachary, will be 22 in July and Connor is 12 1/2. I am overjoyed to say that Trevor is also a court reporting student and made qualifiers a month ago. Zachary is 4th year UC Berkeley and is considering law school or court reporting. Connor is my entrepreneur. Always trying to think of ways to make a buck. My husband and I love to spend family time together. Our interests are: traveling, windsurfing, sailing (racing big boats and dingys) in the San Francisco Bay, camping, wakeboarding, biking, snow skiing, backpacking/hiking and the list goes on. I love trying foods from all over the world. I have to say, desserts are my weakness, especially ice cream. I love the ocean and my dream is to have a home on the coast someday. I love to help those in need and have volunteered for many different organizations. The biggest one would have to be Relay for Life. Okay. I'm getting wordy now, so I'll stop.

Hey, Anthony, just found this blog as I was checking around the website...
I am an amateur cabaret singer...I took lessons for a long time, and performed in a student class in Manhattan for a number of years with other students...but, I have had to give up my lessons until I graduate from school and make some money!!! I also enjoy taking pictures and videos (I would say photography/videography, but i don't think what I do actually qualifies), and video editing. I am the Recording Secretary for the Harrison Players amateur theatre group in Harrison, NY; we put on performances and do fundraising events.

Well, if you make it to Cozumel, do NOT rent a car! We were walking around one day and this salesman gets us with a "cheap rental car" speech. We go in and find out we have to sit for a timeshare schpiel. To get the cheap car, we HAVE to show up for the schpiel. But have to give him a credit card imprint in case we don't show up for the schpiel. Sounds reasonable, we thought. So we go to the schpiel, and the thief still charged my card, and I'm talking "charged my card!" I think it was, like, $200 for a day or two for a rental car, when it should have been $20. Of course I complained to my cc company, but they couldn't do a thing about it.

So we have to have a chant if we go: No senioritas and no rental cars!

Hey, Judy and Stephanie,

I'm in for Cozumel. They have this awesome preserve. It is so cool. The big iguanas are running all over the place, and the snorkelling was really cool. They had a dock that you snorkeled out to, and Clay and I were laying on it catching our breath, and the only person in the water close to us comes up screaming there's a ray in the water.

Clay and I jump back in so quick. There were two, and the one was absolutely HUGE! They hung out for about 30 seconds and then went on their way. It really was amazing!

It was actually a cruise stop, so on our way back to the ship, my husband, four boys, and I get pretty close to the ship, and a local hits my husband up -- hard -- for a quickie with a seniorita "right up there," pointing to a casita close by.

He was carrying our baby and I was probably within ten feet. We got a pretty good laugh over that. I told him I could carry the baby back to the ship. :)

Anyway, Cozumel is a full-service island!

Okay. Guess it's my turn. I am married to the most amazing man. We have been together since November 2003, married in Yosemite National Park June of 2005 (which has been part of my life going camping since my mom was pregnant with me) and expecting a little girlie (Olivia Judith O'Brien) in about four weeks!!! I was 35 when I got married (first time) so we thought very extensively on whether we wanted a family or not, trying to juggle our ages versus having enough "US" time, so where we could have started a little earlier, instead we traveled and lived it up for a few years. So on that note, we love traveling...been to Cabo, Cancun, of course Yosemite every year for our anniversary...even hiked Half Dome together....Wowza, what a challenge, Lake Tahoe. One year did a road trip, rented a convertible Mustang and went all up the CA coast. I used to be more into snow skiing but haven't done it in a few years. I'm more of a water person. Used to go to the river allll the time with an old boyfriend. We love animals...have a 15-year-old lab mix named Sadie and an 8-year-old Brittany Spaniel named Gibson(Gibson after the guitar, which my husband has two of and loves to play) I have played the piano since I was 5 years old. Now that I'm slowing down on work getting ready for my baby, I'm sitting down more playing. Our favorite thing to do is every evening sitting in the living room and playing music...dogs laying on the floor, hubby playing the guitar and me just reading or hanging out. We also love sushi, which I can't wait to have again after the baby. I love nature and the outdoors and just get enjoyment and love of life in the little things, from taking a drive down the coast listening to good music, to sitting out on our deck overlooking the golf course and mountains while the sun is going down, or waking up early in the fall when the sun rising through the clouds emits this beautiful orange glow in the sky, and pretty much put out all negativity from my mind. There's so many bad things going on in this world and nothing we can do about it, so just love the little things in life and enjoy to the fullest. Guess that's about it =)

(could we make it a dive instead of skiing - lol!).

Okay. How about Cozumel, then? But I have a feeling there's more skiers than divers.

Could I be the one drinking the hot chocolate by the fireplace in the lodge waiting for all you crazy people who like the cold to get out of it????

Vacations. I LOVE vacations.

This is awesome, ladies. Thanks for participating. Yeah, skiing is on the list this year.

J-E-T-S, Jets, Jets, Jets!

My husband is originally from New York. BIG Jets fan. We have a very happy household this football season! Me? I've just learned since meeting him.

Happy second marriage. We just celebrated out fifth wedding aniversary on 10/31 (yes, Halloween).

Other than that, I'm very boring and don't have much to add. Two kids, two dogs, one cat. Until recently I thought it was all about work. I'm finally learning the happy medium, glad to say.

When we go on vacation, obviously depending on the season, it's either SCUBA or snow skiing. Maybe one of these moments when I get caught up with tripts I'll post some SCUBA pics on My Page, since I've just learned how to download the camera to my 'puter.

Hey, maybe we can get a big snow ski vacation planned. Everybody meet, say, in the Salt Lake City area (great runs). Everybody stay in the same hotel. The more gung-go spouse skiers can jump down the killer runs together and not drag me along kicking and screaming.
