    Pipe Polish?

    Peterson's are subject to quality control issues. Been seeing it now for a couple of years. I hate to say it but I see too many of them pass through the shop that are sub par. For the money there are better pipes.

    Best Bang for the Buck Factory Pipes

    Savinelli falls below your price in most cases but for value factory pipes they are great smokers. All my save new and used are good smokers. I particularly like the unfinished pipes. They are not lookers but they are smokers, and can be had new for basket prices.

    Buffing Estate Pipes With a Drill Setup.

    Pepper up Your Tobacco and Relieve a Cold

    This is priceless. Did you actually put the stem up to a nostril and inhale? This would make an excellent youtube video. If it weren't for people trying new things, and thinking outside of the box the world would be rather boring. Congrats on your new discovery!

    Honey Mead Noob Question

    Use a champagne yeast. Makes a drier wine with more flavor. Meade can be very sweet, but that's not my thing. Use an ale yeast for a sweeter taste.

    TAPS

    I hear ya bro. I've lost brothers in battle, and performed military funerals for guys I never knew. I can barely listen to the national anthem without crying for all of them. I'm not too tough. Taps brings out the tears. The folding of a flag brings back every memory I try to suppress. God bless...
