    Starting off with some Peterson Nutty Cut this morning. Will be taking a mini cob to work for a few small breaks. Probably have a cigar later on and maybe another full pipe. Stay smokey my friends!

    On my second cigar of the day while waiting for some Salty Dogs plug to dry a bit.

    Blowin' smoke since 1970.

    From the link:

    Plain packaging is an important demand reduction measure that reduces the attractiveness of tobacco products, restricts use of tobacco packaging as a form of tobacco advertising and promotion, limits misleading packaging and labelling, and increases the effectiveness of health warnings.

    Have they not noticed that most pipe tobacco is sold out of glass jars with maybe a white label with a name written on it? "BCA," "1-Q," etc. In fact, most online pipe tobacco is sold with nothing more than a picture of - you guessed it - tobacco. Just imagine how much more Stokkebye Luxury Bullseye Flake we'd buy if there was a sexy label on a tin.

    Smoking some of that right this minute! Somehow, though I like great looking labels, it doesn't affect what I buy, or how it tastes when I light up.....go figure!

    I know that you believe you understood what you think I said, but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Ah, the Science establishment. Gotta love it !

    Scientists funded by Cancer Research UK who spend their lives hunting for cures for the disease are among thousands of academics whose pensions are invested in the tobacco industry, the Guardian can reveal. The latest annual report for the university staff’s pension fund shows it had £211m invested in British American Tobacco in the year to 31 March 2015 – its fifth biggest listed equities holding.

    I know when I worked summers as a night janitor(during college) at the Mayo Clinic the head cancer researcher was a chain smoking freak of nature. Several of the other administration doctors were cigar/pipe smokers. Even though Mayo buildings were smoke free somehow on the admin floor that rule wasn't enforced.

    I once asked a co-worker how a back injury that had happened to him affected his love life. His response : "We just do 68." In response to the inevitable question as to what this entailed, he said, "She goes down on me, and I owe her one."
