    Meerschaum Paint?

    Pretty but, not the pipe I was referring to. I've seen plenty of decorated meers but, never one entirely painted. I guess your pipe was made for the less than discerning meerschaum smoker. rotf

    Meerschaum Paint?

    I'm another who is a non-believer. I suppose if someone was bored enough they might paint their pipe but, a meerschaum? So. pictures are called for.

    Public Piping; Where Do you Do it?

    Pretty much where I please and is legal. I pay no mind to reactions, not that self-concerned.

    Proposed Tobacco Taxes

    We may get what we vote for as most voters are not particularly discerning with regards to what or who they are voting for. I seriously doubt we all get what we deserve though. That said, IBTL.

    RIP Clive Sinclair

    The epitome of the distinctly British phenomenon, "The man in his shed." RIP! It'll be interesting to see what else comes out those sheds in the future.

    How Do You Save a Blend

    If I mistakenly purchase a blend I end up not liking? Into the trash bag it goes. With my knowledge, attempting a salvage job would be a waste of time and materials.

    YES, AGAIN...

    Do You Have Rotations? Do You Rotate Your Rotations? A Rotating Rumination

    I can understand new members not grasping Sablebrush and his oddly slanted take on life. But, preferred members? When I rotated, Air Force days, my pipes went with me. So, yes I did at one time have a rotation of sorts.

    How Large is Your Pipe Collection in Proportion to How Much You Smoke?

    I've no way of figuring that. I suppose I could start a sheet, list the pipes and put a "tick" marl each time I smoke one. But, why in the world would I or, anyone else do such a thing?
