    So, Mr. Pease's new blend made me curious about what exactly Penny Farthing is about. Apparently, a grueling sport, it has had a resurgence of late.

    Historical backdrop

    Contemporary Record

    Interesting. I didn't even know what Penny Farthing referred to. Now I do.

    Also, those bicycles are probably how the Smoking Pipes fellows commute to work*

    I'm not sure that sport is good for any man thinking of starting a family.

    Yes, good link, but I learned more than I care to know about old bike racing.

    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.

    I was hoping this would be about people smoking shag tobacco as fast as possible, lol.
