    Hello from Nova Scotia Canada. Dad was a longtime pipe smoker and I have about ten pipes in my collection so far. I have been smoking Peter Stokkabye tobacco when I could get it in bulk and Amphora otherwise. Pipe Tobacco is about forty dollars a pouch here, so it's hard sometimes to afford it. I have been reading posts in the forum and thought it was time I joined.

    Welcome from Ontario
    Always nice to see a fellow Canadian piper on here
    I was in Nova Scotia about 10 years ago with a friend and although I don’t remember much from that week( thank god...lol) I do remember that the people there are absolutely fantastic and so kind and friendly. Love the east coast. Where abouts are you from? Cole Harbour perhaps ? I only ask cause my favorite hockey player is from there. Lol
    Anyway hope u enjoy the forums lot of good people here and lots of knowledge to be learned. Cheers brother

    Keep calm...smoke a pipe.

    Thanks all for your kind messages and offer of assistance. I took a look at the 4noggins website and it seems to suit the bill so will see what happens.
    I am in Dartmouth Nova Scotia and close to Cole Harbour. Though I am a die hard Leafs fan,so don't often root for "Sid the kid." Looking forward to learning more here.

    Welcome from Ottawa.

    I have a couple of friends returning from vacation in the States with a few gift tins for me. It's legal and about the only way to counter the draconian tobacco measures here in Canada.

    Welcome. Those tobacco prices in Canada must really suck.
    I thought the 100% tax imposed here in Japan was bad but
    I hear it's much worse in Canada - 500% to 1000%. Yikes!

    yikes, well we will try very hard not to hold that against you.

    Welcome aboard! The wife and I went out east several years ago and had a great time. We stayed in Moncton and kind of puttered around, very beautiful out there with the ocean.

    Welcome aboard bogfire. You need to teach us all how to do pipe smoking when blends are hard to get and very expensive, since that could be the future most places. I have a profound respect for Nova Scotia as a "remote" place with a deeply developed culture of music, visual art, and literature, which cannot be said of many places with a relatively sparse population.

    It's always more fun to participate than to just read. Welcome. Too bad about the prices, but we all deal with something negative. I'm glad you are persevering and enjoying what you can.

    Welcome from N California!

    You're not too far from "The Money Pit", on Oak Island, are you.... Ever visited? I got to watching the weekly show about three months ago, and FF'ed through much of it. But now I watch more closely, as the historical and sleuthing bits are interesting. (I personally doubt there's any real treasure left, though).

    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.
