    Anti-smoking forces mobilize in Alabama

    Jimbo - You want the media to actually participate in investigative journalism? Why, when it's just so easy to report what the other guy has said without checking the facts. And it must be true or the other guy wouldn't have said it in the first place, right? Any journalist who accurately...

    How often do you smoke a pipe?

    It depends on the time of year. While it's difficult enduring the harsh San Diego winter, I always smoke on the back patio or front porch and that's usually at the weekends. 2 - 3 bowls on a Saturday or Sunday, sometimes both. During the summer when the days are longer I will light up a bowl...

    Help with photos

    You guys are going to kill me, but here, yet again, is another question on posting photos to the forum. I was reading through Bob's instructions on posting photos and after the 57th page I passed out. Is there an easier way? (I'm using a Mac by the way)

    What are You Reading?

    Just finishing up "Adolf Hitler" by John Toland. Fascinating stuff.

    What are you listening to?

    So much good stuff. This morning it was Vivaldi and now it's swing music from our local PBS station. Maybe some classic rock later on. Just so much good music to chose from.

    Not On The Sidewalk Either

    I used to be stunned by the stupidity of actions like this. Now I'm shocked when this sort of thing doesn't occur. What's next, banning toys in Happy Meals? Oh, right, I forgot. :roll:

    Continuing my quest to be a crotchety old man at 20...

    Several years ago I was at our local movie theater and complaining about the prices while I bought my ticket. I then received the "Senior Discount". I wasn't asked for ID and I wasn't even 50 at the time. That's when I knew I'd made it to Crotchety Old Man status.

    Your Favorite Material Items

    Having been divorced twice, I've lost more stuff than I can remember. It all seemed so very important at the time. The only things I really miss are the family heirlooms that seem to have gone off in one direction or another. I do like my toys. My BMW GS650, my pipes, books, and various other...

    Continuing my quest to be a crotchety old man at 20...

    Nice watch Collin. Pocket watches seem to have a more human scale to them don't they? I've got an old Ball railroad watch that I tote around on occasion. Less so now that my pockets are tighter due to my pants shrinking. Well, they are fitting tighter. As for crotchety old man stuff, go with the...

    Do Expensive Pipes Really Smoke Better?

    I'm with Bob, you can never really tell until you light up. I have no way of knowing what to tell you as to the smoking qualities of high end pipes. I tend to buy pipes for less than $100.00. Actually well less than that. One of my favorites is a factory second basket pipe. It's unfinished and...
