    Hello from New Mexico, USA

    Welcome from Pennsylvania, about 30 miles from Boswell's. He is a good guy and his pipes and tobaccos are first rate. I did a stint with IHS at Shiprock in the 80's, I imagine it has changed a lot since then. Every year since retirement I plan a road trip to Shiprock but something always comes...
