    For the Coffee Heads

    press coffee, all day, pretty bold, black. I picked up the habit from working in a couple record shops and the record library of my college radio station. Is Cafe Bustelo a tin can variety or is it a premium coffee? I'm always trying new coffee.
  5. jayh updated website

    I liked the format. Id like to be able to search by style or get similar mixture recommendations to review. Thats such a nebulous topic though. If P&T stands for I worry. They have one of the least attractive websites I've ever seen. I already don't like the new banner on...

    July 2011 - What are you Smoking?

    Picture of a pleasant evening.

    Anyone else think (even with a well used stem) that this is one hell of a basket pipe? Oval Shank, saddle bit, nice bend, rounded top rather than flat machined rim...looks like a nice "old" Stanwell at the eye test.

    What is your perfect smoking setting?

    anywhere I can relax and its not too windy. for me smoking outside is a marital requirement. I really enjoy sitting on my deck, or my father-in-laws deck. my all time favorite though is in a lawn chair perched on the dam of the pond at my childhood home. last summer I went out there to...

    June 2011 - What are you Smoking? II

    5110 in a Sara Eltang. I like this stuff, just wish it was cut a little more 'ribbon-y' (admittedly I'm deep in a stretch of trying all unclearthurs posts of MC and PS mixtures)
