    My Happy Anniversary

    Happy Anniversary! I once went searching for my balls in my wife's purse. I thought I had one until I realized it was an EOS egg shaped lip balm.

    Here in Ohio, I regularly see at least one pipe smoker at hotrod and vintage car gatherings. Usually sitting near their car.

    Why did you start pipe smoking

    As a kid, I visited family including an uncle that seemed to have Grabows setting in his glass door library cabinet. I used to sneak a pretend puff out of it and be repulsed by the taste. Regardless I was still fascinated by the shape and feel in my hand as a kid. I also used to play with the...

    Renaming The Smoking Thread

    I would love to see a Fishnbanjo tribute thread or section wherever it's appropriate. I like the idea of adding pics, but not a requirement for the thread.

    Very sad news

    Desk Top Versus Laptop

    Fair point; however I will say that a number of Win based laptops have also eliminated the onboard CD/DVD/DVR drives. Reducing USB drives - unforgivable (but you can get a USB octopus). Forcing into Thunderbolt and Firewire - bad; optional good. Thanks for reminding me of that changing trend...

    Desk Top Versus Laptop

    I use a Win 10 laptop daily "docked" to 2 monitors, kb and mouse. Since it's maintained by work, I'm good with it as updates, etc. occur automatically. My parents have a Dell All-In-One Win 10 Machine which was cost effective for them. But, as a consumer machine, it's a total pain to secure...

    Where Have all the Pirates Gone?

    Perish th' thot matey. A pirate follows the code, and we all know that high minded government royalty has no soul or conscious.

    Cherry Smash?

    What Pipe Brand Most Consistently Makes a Great Smoking Pipe?

    Ash - you have too many Ryan Fricken Aldens in your collection. Be a good fellow piper; pick me out a traditional looking straight rusticated and send it to me for foster care, and long-term adoption. Thanks! :rofl:

    Any Guitar Players Amongst Us? I'd Like Your Opinion.

    Key points above about choosing a good guitar vs. "any" guitar for a beginner. We all tend to think in the $200-$400 range assuming it's the right budget for "starter" quality. I disagree based on some of the following points: 1. New players should be able to learn and feel/hear progress. A...

    Boswell or Tinsky??

    I have 3 Boswell pipes, and love them. However in the last 2 years or so, their designs to me have become more chunky and less refined. I used to visit their page weekly in anticipation of seeing the latest releases. Now when I look at their pipes, nothing seems intriguing or interesting...
