    My name or handle, whatever you want to call it has meaning behind it.
    I research funji. Mainly mushrooms.
    I have helped people survive cancer(stage four). Chronic pain and many other diseases.
    After visiting and helping more and more people asking for help. Meeting with these people.
    I used to have hobbies. Building. Model cars,painting,gardening.
    The very very small amount of time that I get to relax. I like to relax with a pipe. Something about the tin/pouch note. Drying the tobacco just right. Packing the pipe. The feel of the pipe. Char light, and initial taste. Then finally after the re-light. Mmm... that beautiful room note.
    Slow methodical. After meeting people day after day. Those who are grasping for hope.
    Thank you to the tobacco pipe! Hobby or not! I hate to think where I would be without it late at night when I wake up and can't stop thinking and working.
    I am happy to answer any personal questions. But only about myself. I have said enough about my research.

    Welcome aboard. I know almost nothing about your field of study, but you're a fellow pipe smoker and that's good enough for me.

    And here I thought Doug Bradley had joined the forum.

    Fungi and non flowering plants have always been a fascination of mine. Kept a "pet" slime mold for a while when i was a kid before returning it to the forest it was found in.

    Sorry one more thing I forgot most important. I have currently:
    6 MM cob pipes
    1 Yello Bole Burley (don't know who makes
    it). I just liked the liik and feel. Stupid
    impulse buy.
    And of course my pride and joy! A Brigham Mountaineer 316. Beautiful smoking pipe
    I will hands down recommended a Brigham pipe for a first briar. I am certainly glad it was recommended to me.

    That Yello Bole is brylon I believe. Many don't care for it, I have a few and enjoy them. Could be mistaken, but I think Kaywoodie makes them.

    Folks often refer to me as a mushroom, because I'm kept in the dark and fed bullshit.

    Yello-Bole makes a series (or more) of briar pipes, or has in the recent past, one series called a Checker. I have one of those and it's a good little pipe. I'm not sure anyone makes Brylon pipes anymore. Yello-Bole, Medico, and a few others used to sell them. They were often criticized for being too heavy and burning too hot, but they sold for many decades, perhaps because of their extra low prices, often around twenty bucks or less. One Forums member who worked in fire restoration liked Brylon pipes because they were extremely durable and could be smoked and cleaned after use in extremely rough work places. I think I heard they finally suspended making them. Brylon is/was some kind of synthetic material used for pipes since (I think it was) the sixties.

    Welcome aboard. I wonder if you have any information about the molds that occur on tobacco. We always have this discussion of plume vs mold, so an educated brain will help us to understand it better.

    Welcome to the forums! I too can vouch for Brigham pipes. I have a birth year Brigham that was made in Canada and it is fantastic.

    That is a pretty interesting background, welcome!
    Do you identify with the Ramones pinhead or the Hellraiser version?

    Welcome Pinhead, lots of fun guys here.
    I smoked my brigham 316 today, its a great pipe! heavier than most of my regular rotation so it gets a little neglected but I always appreciate it when smoked.

    Isaac

    I don't really care if the cup is half full or half empty, I just want something to sip on.

    Thought he did that just because of the OP's user name.
