    Recommend Me a Coffee

    There are lots of great coffee roasters out there. Most will roast on the day they ship and you'll get it within days of roasting. These are the ones I use the most: Specialty Coffee Roasters | Online Coffee Subscription | Coffee Education - https://counterculturecoffee.com Quality Coffee...

    How dare you come in here with the facts and truth. Don't you know this is a Perique topic?!?! Okay, all kidding aside, thanks for that info. And for those who haven't watch it yet, you want know about Mark Ryan? He explains everything from his side of things in dealing with Uncle Sam, the roll...

    Brown Sugar Flake?

    I was pretty underwhelmed by BS Flake. I was hoping for more orientals. And it didn't seem richer than FVF or BBF with age on it. But I was probably expecting too much at the time. Almost every review and comment written about it, loved it.

    Heartbreak Hotel (Title Added by Bob)

    Forklift blades leave a distinct calling card on freight. I should know, i've done plenty of it. And that is not blade damage. But it's cool, believe what you like.

    Heartbreak Hotel (Title Added by Bob)

    Go back and look at the pictures. The box is barely dented on one side. Yes, the tins are all smashed to shit, but the box isn't. That tells you something. But hey, some folks want to give SP a pass for packing those tins with prayers and unicorn farts for protection, good luck with your next...

    Heartbreak Hotel (Title Added by Bob)

    For any vendor to just stack multiple rows of tins inside a box with no bubble wrap, butcher paper, no protection whatsoever, they're asking for damages. This is totally on SP for not even trying to protect the contents. If you've never been around the transportation business, packages get...

    What Are You Listening To? (August 2020)

    What an awesome version. Thanks for posting that! Bela just keeps getting better as he gets older, and Billy is no slouch either.

    Unsmokable Samuel Gawith

    You said that it seemed like it had reached maximum drying but won't stay lit. I'd wager it's still too wet . If your area is high in humidity, sitting out tobacco doesn't do much good when it comes to SG and even McClelland flakes. Some SG flakes can be downright saturated with moisture...

    What Are You Listening To (July 2020)

    Listening to some Jimi ~ Songs for Groovy Children: The Fillmore East Concerts. Can't rave about these recordings enough! I always considered Band of Gypsys the finest work Hendrix ever released. Groovy Children has 5 hours from the 4 shows at the Fillmore. Awesome stuff!

    Scottie Piersel on the Way

    Congratulations! The one commission I had done with her is easily one of my favorite pipes. I'm sure you'll be loving yours!

    Good News For Genesis Fans But....

    I wish them good luck. But without Peter Gabriel I've got zero interest. It would have been nice to see/hear Supper's Ready or The Knife.

    Number Of Pipes Being Listed On eBay Is Exploding

    I keep an eye on treasurepipes on eBay. Always seems like a who's who in the pipe making world week in and week out. But whether it's more than in the past few years I couldn't say. Maybe pipe smokers as a group are getting older and passing on. I'd like to think not.

    Online Sales

    In the U.S., buying Cuban Cigars has been illegal for over five decades. People purchase them online from Europe and Asia every day. I'm not talking about questionable boxes from your sister's husband's niece who's dating a Cuban person down in FL. Actual LCDH vendors. When customs confiscates...
