    A thrilling day for me. Two tubs of Edgeworth Ready Rubbed, a block of Wessex Gold Brick, a few ounces of Park Lane Connoisseur, about an ounce of Steven Books' Seven of Nine, eight tins of Rotary Navy Cut, and 4 ounces of Yorktown. Never thought I'd see the day when I would have a couple of tubs of ERR, especially at such a reasonable price. Most of the rest were gifts.

    Since I have an expert on Edgeworth, Jim, how do you find the current version under a different name?

    MSO: the new version is very good, but it's not quite a match. It has more cocoa and a little less molasses than the original. Also the tobacco cut is small little flakes and not what I consider to be a cube cut as ERR is. The white burley is a little more prominent in ERR than it is in LRR.

    John: I hired the currently out of work Borax mule team to load the packages into the house.

    Zitotczito: I got the world's greatest deal on the ERR tubs, and a fair discount on the Rotary. The rest were thrown in for free in the deal.

    Good on ya'! But, for the tyros among us, how many ounces/pounds/tons in a tub of the ERR?

    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.
