    Just joined up and glad to be able to connect and converse with other pipe smokers.

    It’s been 17 years since I have smoked a pipe.

    Just bought a couple of new pipes and am getting back into enjoying the many fine blends that are out there.

    It’s good to be “home” so to speak.

    Welcome. First the ground rules.... McClelland and Dunhill are extinct.

    Thanks! Yes, that was a real letdown learning that Dunhill was
    no longer. Nightcap was my favorite. Wasn’t smart and not rich . So, looking for similar tasting mixtures.

    Welcome redglow. Enjoy, lots to learn and talk about here.

    Yes, welcome. There are several dozen English blends that are as good as or better than Dunhill's lamented offerings!

    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.

    Thanks everyone!

    Glad to be here.

    I guess I just resolved to start doing things that I enjoy. As you get older, you realize that one way or the other, life goes by awful quickly.

    I want to spend that time enjoying it!

    redglow, despite recently discontinued brands, this is the golden age of blends, which I grudgingly admit is because of online sales. Choices are vast. Welcome.

    Welcome to the crew!

    I took a break from the pipe for a number of years, too. Nice to see you back on it! Enjoy!
