  • An interesting conversation with Jess, who like some of the other novice pipe smokers, had a wonderful back story and a very good start on his journey to becoming a “pipeman.”
    Dan might be surprised that, for once, I was rather underwhelmed by the music choice.
    Have a good trip to my parent’s homeland, Greece, and my wife’s father’s land, Italy.
    And, thanks for an always entertaining show.

  • Like you I really hate the limited edition blends that they are coming out with. I find them to be all marketing ploy to get us to buy this tobacco. There’s no reason to do this other than to them something to hype. They all have plenty of good blends. There’s no need for a special release which isn’t special.

    “Really bad, cheap cigars”. We’ve all been there. Man, when I was 17 I loved Swisher Sweets. Like Jess I really detest Haunted Bookshop. It’s tough to smoke around the youngsters. When I was young it was no problem but today it’s really tough to talk yourself in to it. I’d play a mandolin and join a traditional bluegrass band. No money in it, of course.

    The music was beyond underwhelming. Dino was right.

    Aren’t spammers a trip??
