    This sound quite good. I love drinking tea with lemon. 
    Perhaps everyone would like to share how they spend free time,  share favourites hobbies, share links to watch for free good films or recommend interesting books/ articles.

    So many good films to choose from - My favourite films are Pulp Fiction, Blue Valentine, Grand Budapest Hotel, Limitless and Who Framed Roger Rabbit (going for a bit of variety too)

    My favourite books are The Hobbit, Neil Gaiman The Ocean at the End of the Lane and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night Time by Mark Haddon 

    With the Golden Globes on 8 January and the Oscars in February- Who gets your vote?

    I think Arrival and Sully should be in for a shout.

    Just to share with those who love reading. Two books which can inspire many.
    First is written by Jim Hohnberger "Men of Power". Written especially for men. In this book  we can find out why men are created to picture GOD and what really their role of life is (especially in relationship with woman).
    The book is perfect for people who also looking for perfect relationship in their life as Jim explains the   priorities orders on which each relationship should be build up. Jim Hohnberger use the quotes from Bible to underline the strength of men in our lives. 
    I personally found the book very interested and I do agree to this book contest. It was interesting for me to read how  the author  advice others.
    I think that  for the first time I read book mostly written for the other gender. 

    Worthy to check it out personally. 
    Fully recommended. 
    The other book I  managed finally to finish is written by disable international, motivational speaker Nick Vujicic "Limitless".
    Nick share in his book with his personal story of life from early childhood to the moment he becomes  professional speaker. Nick is traveling all over The World to support all people including  communities from developing countries were people leave in poverty, luck of food, where children are  left without any parental support. Nick aims  to bring the awareness that somewhere else in The World are people who suffer more than we are here. 
    Nick share also with us his journey to make impossible possible and shows us that no matter disability we can learn to overcome physical, mental barriers and learn new sports disciplines, use technology and so on. 
    I really recommend this book to empower you. 

    Have a great time.

    Hi @DannyMoore, it sounds like you have interesting hobbies to share with others. 
    I remember you mentioned earlier about Taekwondo as self-defence method of protection. 
    Have you ever thought to share your skills and teach young teenager Taekwondo? 
    I think you will easily find kids ready to practise it. 
    It seams like you know how to fulfil your free time. It is very important skill in life to know yourself and find time for getting busy.
