Hey all

Anyone get any exciting gifts relating to your hobbies?

My family in Calgary knows I'm insane for audio so my brother got me a pair of Sennheiser 598 headphones. My other brother got me a book "The guide to high end audio". It is a good read and is injecting a little understanding of the high end ethos. Interesting.

Anyone else get any gifts they are excited about?

Got a lower receiver for an AR 15 build and a complete upper rifle kit. Waiting on the kit to start the build.

Got a Taylor Made mini-driver I've been eye-balling. I can't seem to find the new operating system patch for improving my swing though. Thought for sure that would have come with the driver. Oh well, at least I won't be able to hit the ball as far into the rough with this driver as all my others.

I made an undisclosed donation to Plan Canada (I sponsor an amazing boy from Mali, Africa through them) for my parents, sister and her fiance, and baby (you can come out any time now Liam!) as gifts. The three gifts are matched by a government, foundation or organization partner, so all three gifts were technically $450 donations. That rocks!

Nice plane. I started off with the Large but soon picked up the medium the following year. Its one of those planes that you don't think will get used but seems to be the perfect tool in unexpected ways. Like adjusting the door stop trim inside a door frame.
