    Hello from Atlanta. My dad introduced me to pipe smoking when I was 19. I've kept a pipe around since then and would break it out ocassionally but never took it up seriously. I gave up smoking around Christmas last year and switched to vaping. Vaping got me off of the smokes and controlled the nic urges but I was missing real tobacco flavor and started experimenting with diffrent pipe tobaccos about 6 months ago. I'm really digging Luxury Bullseye Flake. I picked up a couple of MM cobs and haven't looked back. I've found that I really enjoy all the aspects of pipe smoking.

    Where are you in Atlanta. I'm in Suwanee and we have a pipe club up here.

    I know what I need, smoke, I can't recall the last time I tasted it....Gandalf in the mines of Moria.

    "we shall have to share pipes, as good friends must at a pinch'....'I keep a treasure or two near my skin, as precious as rings to me. Here's one: my old wooden pipe. And here's another an unused one...He held up a small pipe with a wide flattened bowl, and handed it to Gimli. 'Does that settle the score between us', said Merry. 'Most noble hobbit, it leaves me deep in your debt."

    Welcome from Chicago...or the suburbs thereof, anyway. In a couple of months, I'll be dropping off our oldest kid, who will be starting school there this fall. I've heard a lot of great things about Atlanta, but have never been there, so I'm looking forward to the visit.

    Cool beans, tnx! East Point's a nice little town (if you call 35k or so "little"; I grew up in Bainbridge, which was 10k, so....). EP's got a lot going for it; small-town atmosphere, big-city advantages.
