    Different Kind of Storage Question

    Context! I said "no" to your assertion that holding liquid=airtight. That's just a fact of physics. Those containers may also be airtight, but the proof is not that they hold water.

    Different Kind of Storage Question

    Great! A time lapse vid covering about ten years would be a great project. An internal hygrometer featured on the tub would be a critical element.....

    Different Kind of Storage Question

    Also, six months isn't cellaring, as you know. It works for you, good thing, but I just don't want others to think it's a tried and true method for long term cellaring.

    Preferred Pipes And Methods For Flakes

    Yeah, that's why I often say diff folks, diff strokes. There are other things where I do discriminate.

    Different Kind of Storage Question

    I'd be leery of how airtight those containers are. Have you any long term experience?

    Hello from the English Channel...

    So I have been informed! But Google still can't find it. Besides I am more interested in living IN the English Channel, or "La Manche" as the French call it.

    Still Smoking Too Hot. Need Help!

    Oh, yes, please! Might you do a 23 minute Youtube presentation?? No need to prepare a script or do any blocking, and certainly no editing! Thanks in advance.

    Preferred Pipes And Methods For Flakes

    I like all manner of tobacco cuts and pipe shapes (excluding most freehands). I am not fussy about stem "fit", as I seem to be able to adapt to most.

    How Long Will It Take to Sell This Pipe

    Few among us don't have shapes we abhor and thankfully don't own.

    Photos Of 19th Century Briar Pipes?

    First mention I've read of the smoke being too cool for enjoyment. Interesting!

    Still Smoking Too Hot. Need Help!

    Dry, dry, dry. No "technique" is required for most cuts when they are dry enough. And briar has a wide variation in how it conducts heat, so similar pipes with same wall thickness may be quite different in how hot they feel.

    Great Movies With Pipe Smoking Scenes Being Featured

    The Crown. About halfway through the third season, Harold Effing Wilson is shown with a pipe in a cabinet meeting. The stem is upside down! It'a a 1/8th bent or less, but clearly no one involved in shooting that sequence has a clue about pipe smoking. (I've a feeling this was mentioned before)
