2) Vigorous Exercise (both weightlifting and cardio on a daily basis). Not purely to serve vanity.....but as a means to stay in contact with life and youthful mindlessness...not to mention good preparation to walk foreign cities and climb mountains to get the best photographs.

4) My cameras and film critique.
5-6) Casually chucked them.
