    My Second Ruthenberg

    That is a gorgeous blast. One heck of a good get! Enjoy it!

    Poetry

    The quarrel of the sparrows in the eaves, The full round moon and the star-laden sky, And the loud song of the ever-singing leaves, Had hid away earth's old and weary cry. And then you came with those red mournful lips, And with you came the whole of the world's tears, And all the sorrows...

    Durham Region (Ontario) Pipers

    Well isn't that a hell of a coincidence. I was starting to think of doing the same thing and I'm even in Oshawa as well. There's always been a good turn out at the pipe nights at Victory so it definitely looks like it could be a thing. I do believe that I could offer my backing on the...

    What are You Reading?

    I'm currently in to White Night from Jim Butcher in his Dresden Files series. Not at all surprised to be enjoying it.

    Who Went To College?

    Well I'm attending it now. It does seem that today it's nigh impossible to do just about anything for a living without getting some "higher" education. Here in Ontario a fella needs a high school diploma to be qualified to lay brick full-time! Haha the good thing about that is that when I saw...

    Hey there fellows!

    Haha thanks and hello to you all for the warm welcome. I'll put in a "yea" for Lawrence as homecoming nobility.

    Hey there fellows!

    Thanks much for the welcome Chris, it's good to see a familiar face.

    Hey there fellows!

    Hey guys! Haha, been a while! Hopefully there are still a few guys around who recognize me. But here I am again and I will be trying to be a bit more active again. Still smoking my pipe and I'm now officially a college boy. In there for journalism and it is honestly quite interesting so far...

    Question regarding marijuana ghosting in a briar pipe

    Walker Briar Works does an Ozone cleaning but I'm not sure that would really rid the thing of this problem. There is, however, a chance that THIS method outlined by G.L. Pease that stands a chance of saving it. It does seem to be the most likely solution in my opinion. I wish you the best of luck!

    Best Corn Cobb makers?

    Missouri Meerschaum is about the one answer there is for "best". Though if I remember correctly Jake Hackert has been known to offer a corn cob and I wouldn't doubt for a minute that he can do a great job.

    New addition to the collection!

    I do hate to double post but I thought that I'd enlighten anybody interested in just what is going on in that control cavity. We can see here that the five switches on the bottom control the phase and state (on/off) of each coil. So you can have just about every pickup combination that you...

    New addition to the collection!

    Haha exactly what I thought! Such a mess and there's not even any active electronics in it! TopD, I can definitely see where you're coming from. It's quite a bit of work to clean these things up but it's also one of the reasons that I love the electric! Hah not to say that I don't love the...

    New addition to the collection!

    Vespertillio, you are quite welcome. On your basic layout of three potentiometers, and a pickup switch the wiring is a whole lot more simple. It's when you get in to things like switching the phase of each coil (which is what I think five of those switches do) and other crazy bits of...

    New addition to the collection!

    And not the pipe one! Sorry I haven't been around much lately but with school coming up and my brother being in town I've been a little busy. I just had to show this thing though! I picked this up for an absolute steal at a flea market here on the weekend because all those switches made me...

    Anyone try Davidoff blends?

    I've tried their flake medallions and I absolutely loved them.
