    I would like to take up astronomy, but it seems very expensive and a bit over my head

    Well Phil we're proud of you!

    My latest hobby is singing in a mixed choir. Although I can't read music I've got a good ear for sound - once heard never forgotten. I'm classed as baritone by the choir master.

    Heres something you may not have known about a choir. There's 30 of us and when facing the choir the men are on the left as bass, baritone or tenor with the ladies on the right with sopranos furthest right. According to the choir master or mistress in our case, we're positioned like piano keys. When everyone sings in Unison it's a wonderful sound - very uplifting.
