    2nd CobSnob Arrived Today

    I really do need to get one or two of those for myself. Great looking pipes.

    Extended Vacation

    Thank you all for the well wishes. A small update here, I went to my surgeons office to fill out paperwork this morning and it turns out that a secretary/nurse/clerk/etc...scheduled my surgery for the one hospital in town that my insurance doesn't cover. How she managed to do this despite the...

    Am I a "Smoker?" Advice Please.

    My dentist asked me the "are you a smoker" question several weeks ago as I prepared to have a mouthful of fillings. I asked if smoking a pipe once a week made me a smoker and he laughed and said that he wouldn't consider me a smoker unless it was a daily routine.

    Extended Vacation

    Well Ladies and Gents, on Tuesday the 25th I am having my hip replaced. This will be to resolve a flaw that has been present in my hips since I was born. And while I am unreasonably frightened about the whole thing, I am going to get six weeks off of work. Plenty of time to sit at home and...

    Stonehaven and Pezance???

    I think it's an ok smoke. As I've described it here before, it smells like steam rolled oats (horse feed). It's pretty moist and requires some drying before you smoke it or it won't stay lit. For me it was a shrug of the shoulders kind of baccy...not bad, but nothing spectacular either.

    I Dislike Lane 1Q. Anyone Else?

    1Q smells wonderful and has a great room note but I've found that it's not particularly flavorful. If you want to try other bulk aro's, I'd recommend a bit of Scotty's Butternut Burley, it's one of my favorites.

    I Must Quit Smoking

    What a truly unfortunate situation. However I commend your decision to do what must be done for your health, it shows a great deal of will power.

    Dunbar vs Stonehaven

    I still have quite the stash of stonehaven after buying a package last year. I'll smoke it now and again but have never really gotten much enjoyment out of it. It has a very distinct steam rolled oats (anyone with a horse knows what these are) aroma/taste to me. It smokes well enough but...

    How Much do You Guys Smoke a Week?

    One or two a week. Not as often as I'd like but gotta keep the wife happy (it also keeps my cellar pretty easily stocked).
