    What Do You Do With Your Used Glass Jars?

    Wash them in hot water and dish soap , rinse with hot demineralized water ! Air dry them. Not with paper towels, pipe cleaners , my deceased mother in law's undies etc. Put them in the oven for 10-15 minutes on 110 Celsius to sterilize. Don't have herpes btw. Bob's your uncle :)

    Interesting Completed Ebay Auctions - British Pipes

    The man is not a thoroughbred pipe seller ( he knows nil about pipes ) and we exchanged a few mails . He is a very congenial person and earned a good reputation as a seller. I think most of his pipes to be very attractive ; higher graded and in fine condition. Admittedly most fetch (too) high...

    Interesting Completed Ebay Auctions - British Pipes

    What Is The Worst Pipe Tobacco You Have Ever Smoked?

    With a beautiful certainty ; Dunhill's EMP. Tasted bitter and foul ; made my pipe smell like a sewer. Yuck.

    Does tobacco that has been well stored for more than 20 years get better?

    In our eerie cellar ( dark, dry and cold ) are ten 1981 Dunhill Standard Mixture so called "tall boy" tins . Proud as punch when I stumbled over them. I opened the 11th one :) and it is pure manna . Will start selling soon , I smoke too little and these tins deserve a better home. Also smoked...

    Repairing a Peterson Baskerville

    There are some contradictory reports on waterglass being poisonous. What is the truth ? I feel reluctant and so far only "concocted" organic bowl coatings. Great job on the pipe !
