  • Nice “101” review of the stem; brief yet comprehensive.
    I really enjoyed the very entertaining conversation with Jay. It was the kind of free-wheeling discussion between “pipe-friends” that makes it fun to eavesdrop.
    While I like the original much better, Guns N’ Roses cover of “Live and Let Die” is a classic hard rock compliment to Sir Paul.
    Don’t sweat the details. As you get older, you realize exact times and dates for things are for textbooks, not life. You only need to be exact for your spouse’s birthday and anniversary.
    Thanks for another always entertaining show.

  • Good review of the pipe stem. Short and to the point.
    I didn’t really get into your conversation with Jay Furman. It’s completely irrational but the one pipe podcast I can’t stand is “Pipe and Tamper”. Jay’s co-host is Mike Murphy who leaves me cold. I absolutely can’t stand someone who asks questions with so many conditions that you can literally just answer then “yes” or “no”. I think that interviewers who think they have to show off how smart they are. are incredibly rude. I know you have to do this with politicians but not with average people. Hell, we’re just a bunch of guys sitting around talking about pipes. As I have said many times, I want to hear the guest speak, not the interviewer.
    Coming up with a new calendar is a cinch. A pope actually did this in 1582 by adjusting the calendar forward ten days and by cleaning up the process of calculating when leap year will fall. So, October 4, 1582, was immediately followed by October 15, 1582. I’d explain how they more correctly calculated leap year, but I’ll save that for later. For a more enlightened version Isaac Asimov devised one that called for 30 days per month and once a quarter add a day at the end called Quarter Day. After the end of the fourth quarter, in addition to the Quarter Day you will a day called World Day, or whatever. So, you have 12 months of 30 days, 4 Quarter Days, 1 World Day. That’s 365 days which is a standard year. When you have leap year you would add Leap Day to the calendar after World Day. But, in truth, you can’t use this because the world would rise up in the streets demanding your head. Good Lord, Aunt Millie!!
