  • Hey Brian,
    Pipe Cleaners – for 44+ years primarily used Dills. Prices gone from 25 cents to almost $2 per package. Likewise, I use 2 or 3 per bowl.
    Jason Bard & pipe restoration – good topic. They were next to Bill and I at CORPS, along the wall. They had some very nice pipes.
    I hope to make it to the West Coast show sometime. Nice musical selection.
    The number of plates at crazy barrel keeps up jobs for dishwashers…
    Good show, brian

  • I’m an unrepentant segregationist…when it comes to food.
    I’m damn-near Sheldon Cooperish, in my desire to isolate my esculents.
    Besides, John is correct, plates need to be washed; it’s someone’s job.
    Huzzah to the Barrel for being a job creator!
    The show was, as always, terrific. Thoroughly enjoyed the conversation with Jason.
    And, Mr. Bley was wonderfully inventive and lyrical.

  • I enjoyed the latest show, Brian. Your talk with Jason about the one-of-a-kind Dunhill got me wondering about collecting pipes as an investment. It isn’t something I could afford to do but it would be interesting to hear about people who can. I’m guessing it is similar to art in that you should invest in what you like, but I would definitely like to hear a Pipe Parts and/or Interview talking about who does it, what kind of pipes they are investing in, if it is something many collectors do or only a few. Anyway, keep up the good work.

  • Another great interview Brien I am thinking of trying to purchase one or two estate pipes. As for the food I would be already stuffed with half of that order.

  • Pretty much a run of the mill show (they can’t all be great). The piece on pipe cleaners would be very useful for newbies. It seems like every body and their brother has become a pipe restorer (not a repairman though).
    The thing about Cracker Barrel that has always amazed me is the amount of business they do. I mean they turn out pretty mediocre meals and yet out draw places that do a much better job with the same meals for the same price.
