  • A very nice conversation with Russ, who seems to be on a successful path as a pipe smoker. I thoroughly enjoyed hearing of his nascent pipe carving adventure, making a pipe for his grandfather. A warm and wonderful story.
    What can one say about the music choice? Just, [B]Bach[/B]. ‘Nuff said.
    Your rave was a great closing note.

  • This a week after the show and with my memory there’s no telling what I’ll mess up but what the hay.
    Seems like you recommended three straight Virginias and unfortunately it doesn’t help me much as I must have some noticeable Perique with my Virginias.
    Good conversation with the novice. You seem to have a good knack for drawing out the kind of stories that we are looking for from these guys.
    Bach was very good.
    Good rant.
