So true Jay! Probably because I have a 17 y/o step-daughter who doesn't seem to be passionate about anything! And I don't think it's just her, it's a lot of the kids her age. Maybe I'm just getting to that age where where I start to say tings like that, but I don't remember it being that way for me. We all had hobbies and could name a few things we were really passionate about. My problem has always been too many hobbies/interests.
Craig brings up an interesting point...there are fewer people acquiring the skills needed for hobbies like these. Listening to talk radio the other day I heard them mention how poorly the "box stores" are doing in Europe because there has been such a decline in do-it-yourselfer's. Perhaps it's, like he said, a lack of mentorship. Perhaps it's just different interests. I will say, I have one employee who's 26 and he is actually buying old turntables and tube amps. Fun to see his reaction when he hears how good "true analog" sounds. I think if you are over 35 you know how good audio can sound, but these younger adults have been raised on compressed garbage and don't know the difference. I think all the digital is creating a bit of an analog revolution in these younger generations.
...sorry - totally off into the weeds. I thought we were talking about boats.
