  • Chris’ difficult question was nicely handled by Jeff and you. The answers were succinct yet, I think, perfectly on target.
    Neville’s conversation with you was quite enjoyable and revealing. His fire story and it’s aftermath made me both sad for his loss and glad for how he dealt with it, rebuilding on the ashes. (Pun intended).
    Your answers to Neville’s questions about “tipping ash” and tamper maintenance seemed right on for not only him but also your general audience.
    What a fun guest he was!
    Interesting music choice. I found it moving, and loved how it rocked.
    Thankfully, my doctor doesn’t care that I smoke a pipe and an occasional cigar. He’s more rightly focused on my addiction to food.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • I thought the readers question took you and Jeff a little by surprise. All I got out of it was everything is kind of alike except the Danes who are doing their own thing.
    The interview with Neville was very good though his accent was a little jarring at first. You could have given us a little warning about it. But no matter it just took a couple of minutes to adjust to it then I was fine. His loss of pipes and tobacco was disheartening to me. Fortunately for him that’s a small loss compared to a human life. The price of loose tobacco in Australia is brutal and it is amazing that he rebuilt it back so quickly. At $75 US per tin, it had to drive many Aussie pipe smokers away. Your answers to his questions were fairly cogent and apply to all smokers.
    My doctor is a little strange. Some visits he doesn’t say anything and sometimes he’s acting like I must be a fool. Don’t appreciate as a matter of fact. I may have to change doctors.
    Real good show.
