    Hey guys hope everyone is doing well and staying warm! A bit of exciting news... I booked my honeymoon today to Scotland! Its all coming to life now that I purchased the tickets and am booking all our bed and breafast's and black houses to stay in. I cant wait to get out for a couple weeks and explore my "home land"! Also, I will of course be on the hunt for some great tobacco and pipes in the Scotland area.. If anyone has any personal experience with any good tobacco and or pipe stuff out in Scotland I would love to hear about it.. I will be sure to post plenty of beautiful pics when I return. Just wanted to share my excitement with the pipesmagazine brothers and sisters! Smeigs

    Congrats Smeigs, enjoy yourself! Just remember if anyone says anything to you in Gaelic just respond with a hearty

    First honeymoon (I was eventually a widower) we went to New Orleans well before Katrina and ate wonderful
    food and heard great music. Second honeymoon was really before the wedding as it turned out, when we went
    to Paris -- you reach a certain age, you seize the day, though we'd known each other for forty years. Scotland
    is a lovely place, with the production of whisky wafting through the air in Edinburgh. "What's that smell," my
    wife asked a local, in a friendly way. "Why, it's me, my dear," he responded.

    Hoot mon! Sounds like a great trip. We're also planning a trip to Scotland and England this summer to introduce our tot to her heritage. Any piping I get in will have to be while my ladies are otherwise engaged

    I would love to see Scotland! Very cool destination indeed. Truth be told, if you have good company any where will do. Congratulations for finding your special one. I wish you all the best in your future together.

    Congrats,lucky man. So many single malts, so little time.

    A few years ago I had customers come into the bookstore where I worked on a quiet Sunday and got to talking. They were from Scotland.

    'What part?'
    'One of the islands.'
    'Islay?'
    'You even pronounced it right!'

    We got to talking for a long time and an hour later I had an invite to stay with them should I ever be in the area. A distillery tour of Islay sounds about amazing to me. Hope you get to hit Talisker at least while you're on Skye.
