    Hot Weather.

    Living in cold climates, this is regular entertainment when newcomers move in. But, I've never heard of this happening in hot weather. Your car must have gotten REALLY hot!!!

    Savinelli 320 KS Moisture Problem

    This has more often, than not, been my experience with Savinelli filter pipes. The channel behind the chamber hole expands quickly, which cools the smoke quickly, which causes condensation. This is why I think filter pipes stink. I really like some of Savinelli's finishes and styles. But, if...

    Smokingpipes Lost Package

    Well, you and I are diligent about getting mail that's delivered to us by mistake to the proper person, one way or another. Other folks are not always that considerate. Everything is someone else's problem these days. But, perhaps, your neighbor will get off their lazy ass and see that the...

    Cellaring Salty Dogs

    Got the impression the inside wrappers were cellophane. Whatever the case may be, I jared them with the cellophane left on -- several 'bars' to a jar. Couple years later they seem to be doing fine. The wrapper hasn't yet discolored, so might not be cellophane.
