  • I very much enjoyed the discussion of two of my favorite things, chocolate and tobacco. Matt and you stirred a lovely confluence among the two products and crafts. A tasty conversation.
    Like Brian, that Bach piece is among my favorites on the planet; Erin performed it beautifully.
    Nice NASPC report, and it was good to see you, too, on that ZOOM.
    Thanks for an always entertaining show.

  • Couldn’t believe you found a real chocolatier for the show. I guess great taste buds travel in the same places. Chocolate and tobacco make for wonderful combination.
    Greatly enjoyed the musical piece and it was played marvelously by Erin. Kudos for that.
    Really enjoyed the trip report immensely. Except, for Sally Gottliebsen it looked like a whole bunch of new people were at the show.

  • Another fine show. Matt Dixon was another of your fine guests on new guys to our community. I particularly liked your review of the Columbus show. I have been fortunate enough to attend every NASPC show since 2013 and must say it is my favorite. And I say that as a veteran of pipe shows, having attended the Richmond show since 1989, Chicago since 2003, and even one Raleigh show in 2018. I must say I was a bit wary of the new Columbus venue because I loved the old place down the road in Dublin. The only thing I miss about the old place is the great courtyard, so amenable to enjoying a bowl or four. I will tell you the same I told Brian Doran, Beans 316 on YouTube, that talking to you was my 2nd best experience, only after winning. $595 Rinaldo pipe in the raffle.

    My only beef is you gave a shoutout to Mrs. Spike, and she’s listened to that part of the show many a time, and now couldn’t fit on Steve Fallon’s hat either.
