    A nice bowl of baccy amplifies and makes more enjoyable almost every non-physical pursuit! Good luck on the midterm

    What Ho! What Ho! What Ho!

    I am around too! Indeed, I am back from- well, not a Hiatus- but a length of time in which I didn't show up!

    How is everybody?

    What care I if my poor means/Clad not my walls with splendid scenes/And pictures by the masters;/Here in the curling smoke-wreath glow/
    Bold hills and lovely vales below,/And brooks with nodding asters.//All that on earth is fair and fine,/This fragrant magic makes it mine,/
    And gives me sole dominion;/And if you call me fanciful,/I only take a stronger pull,/And laugh at your opinion.// - HERMANN RAVE. "PIPE AND POUCH"

    Quiet night. Gonna have a beer and another smoke before bed. A Sam Latitude 48 IPA and some Blackwoods Flake in an Ashton Pebble Grain apple.

    Yep. Quite Quiet.

    I can never decide what to smoke. I think I may go with some Anniversary Kake. Perhaps some Grey Havens.

    I do love Orlik. However I ruined my 3/4 tin a couple months ago.

    And that is why you never try to rehydrate without doing research.

    "Oh no! I left my tin of Golden Sliced open all night!" Said I.

    "I know, I heard something about putting a Damp Paper Towel over it! Sounds Easy Enough!" Said I.

    **A DAY PASSES**

    "AGH! I forgot about the Golden Sliced!"

    *Runs to check*

    The Golden Sliced has swollen to twice it's size and turned brown.

    "Oh God no!"

    Long story slightly shorter- it was ruined.

    I had some Enchiladas earlier. Surprisingly good- considering they were frozen. (Not really in the same ballpark is it? Haha)

    Those are some wise words, Indeed!

    I, myself, am a proponent of Tolkien's Quote:
    "If more of us valued food and cheer above hoarded gold, it would be a much merrier world."

    Of course a good pipe never hurt, either!

    Once my wife was upset that I had not made reservations for our Anniversary dinner and we were on Grand Cayman. I told her to have faith and took her to a place right on the beach, where the food was cooked by a Caymanian family from their home and had a postcard perfect vista. Fish caught 50 feet away that morning and Calamari so tender it almost couldn't be believed and all for the price of a working man's lunch!

    Baron you and I would get along. One of my favorite things to do is trying new food. Eating someone's food in an unfamiliar area really connects you to the place.

    Got a heads up from a member here about this pipe, so I included it in a tobacco order tonight.

    A Brebbia Pura, nice grain with a cumberland rubber stem. Had to do it

    Hey all! I hope the Late Night Crew is all well tonight. Baron, how did that new job lead in another state work out? Are you moving or staying put? Hope I'm not being too nosy but thought from your posts that your current employers were being dorks.

    Be careful what you wish for, as you just might get it.

    Briar Blues is a good outfit not my regular vendor but they are ok by me .

    Only 10:45 here in AZ. It's my Birthday for another 75 minutes. Only this morning I was anticipating my tin of H&H Marquee Black House to have shipped from pipesandcigars.com, but I was told that it is still out of stock. Apparently it is hard to keep in stock. Could this be the work of the infamous baronsamedi and his gang of Blackbloods? Hmmm...

    I haven't personally purchased anything from BriarBlues, but a few pipe friends have done business with him and have been happy. Mike's been at this a long time and has a good reputation. As always, especially if the pipe(s) your considering is/are pricey, ask for more info (draw, pipe cleaner pass, drilling, etc.) and more pictures. That will better ensure you'll be pleased when your purchase arrives. Surprises are for birthdays.

    Had a great day, Rothnh. My kids made me dinner. I had a pre dinner bowl of 1Q, and an after dinner bowl of Molto Dolce. Would have been perfect but the ex showed up halfway through dinner to drop off some stuff for my daughter. Oh, well. It's all good though. Me and my kids and my pipe. Oh, and some Glenlivet 18 year old.

    Ah! Some may remember me saying I ruined a tin of Golden Sliced a couple of days ago!

    Well, yesterday I came across it again, and decided to try it- see if it got any better.

    It did! I decided to try the Fold-and-Stuff method for the first time. It was Quite good!

    However, after about an hour (!) it went out, and then the dreaded emptiness in my stomach harkened to the fact I had poisoned myself.

    It was the second time it has happened to me in the 5 months I have been smoking- and boy, it still is not pleasant.

    It caught me off guard- as well. I was under the impression that Golden Sliced was quite Mild. (It certainly never happened to me BEFORE I ruined it.

    So I figure I could narrow it down to the following factors:

    1.) The Fold-and-Stuff method had something to do with it.
    2.) The Water from when I over-hydrated it some months back redistributed the Nicotine. (Could also account for the fact that it turned brown.)
    3.) It just wasn't my night.

    Anyway, enough Rambling.

    Oh! I also FINALLY got those clay pipes that I asked for help picking out a couple months back! I will get some pictures up soon. Thanks PipeNovelist for recommending pipeshoppe! They are Fantastic!

    Penn Valley kicks ass and I love my clay pipes. Glad to hear that you are enjoying yours too. I have come to find that that English blends in a clay are just tasty to death. Clays are about the only medium for my English blends anymore and the one that I actually smoke is getting some great patina to it. Ill try and take a pic of it sometime.

    I ended up getting the Triple-Combo Elizabethan/Dutch Gouda/"Sherlock" English Tavern

    Unfortunately my Mum broke my Elizabethan! Before I even got to try the Tambolaka that a nice fellow on /r/pipetobacco sent me! (I was waiting to try it in the Elizabethan because of how strong it supposedly is.)

    I have been smoking up a storm with the English Tavern, and I have decided to try the Experiment that we talked about way-back-when.

    So my Tavern is a dry-smoking Clay, and my Gouda shall be the one I dip in water before I smoke. I will keep you updated on the results!

    Always good!

    I won a contest on /r/pipetobacco a couple of days ago and the goods arrived today!

    Here is an album! It includes a picture of my new English Tavern pipe, as well.

    So I have got some new blends to try!
