I guess its time to write a profile...been hanging around this joint for a few months...what a great place to hang!

I have been interested in pinball since my early teens. Live in New Jersey, so pinball was rather prominent every where for the most part. Certainly the Jersey Shore was a great place to play with all the arcades on the boardwalks.

When I turned 50 ...there were 2 toys I always wanted...one a big telescope as that has been a passion for a long time. I purchased a very good scope...and like pinball, you can never have just one..so purchased my second. A rather large scope with an 18" mirror, totally computerized, where you can input the name of one of 80,000 (and more) objects, hit a button and your scope will automatically move right to that object. You really get to learn the sky very well. Its a passion that is unmatched...just like pinball in many ways....and equally if not a more expensive hobby.

So nine years later...the last toy I wanted was a true to life Pinball machine. Purchased it in December 2011.....a TF nib. I have learned so much since then...but it was less than a month and I purchased my second pb...an nib lotr. So the bug has bit...and I just want to keep adding and adding. What a great hobby.
