    What I have learned in my 1st month here

    +1. There's already enough complexity in my life, I don't need to drag it into my leisure activities. The only things I obsess about while smoking are keeping ashes out of my scotch and not setting myself on fire. Everything else is burdensome. Regarding strong opinions and arguments, sorry...

    Anniversary Kake Question

    Your description does not fit Anniversary Kake. AK is crumbly, and is easily broken up with the fingers.

    Your favorite tonquin tobacco?

    I'll cast another vote for 1792. It's the only tonquin flavored tobacco I've ever had, and the only one I know of. What are some others?

    Generally I will use matches when my butane or Zippo runs out of fuel in the middle of a smoke and I'm too lazy at that moment to get out of the chair and refill. I prefer paper matches to sticks because they burn a bit slower than the wooden ones.

    One of my sons visited Japan a few years ago and brought me back a pouch of Momoyama. I don't recall which variety it was, but I'm pretty sure that it wasn't made my Mac Baren. I found it to be quite an enjoyable aromatic that I would buy here if it was available, but like mso I don't think it...

    Legislation Filed 02-10-2017 - Increase Tax On Pipe Tobacco to $24

    Let's see now...eliminate tobacco and legalize marijuana. It makes a lot of sense from the nanny state's point of view. A stoned population will be much easier to control.

    Who'd Want To Be A Celebrity?

    I am the kind of person who couldn't attract attention even if I were to set fire to myself in a crowded room, and I like it that way. Invisibility is a blessing.

    Dunhill, Castello or Others

    Excellent point. My Castello KKKK Natural Vergin that I bought from Castellana in Florence cost me about $75 less than I've ever seen one retail for online here in the US. If you have to buy online check out a EU dealer as bigpond suggested. Jim

    Dunhill, Castello or Others

    That's the bottom line. It doesn't get more basic and sensible than that. To address your question directly, I have no experience with Dunhill pipes, but I do own a Castello that I bought in Florence this past July. It's become my favorite smoker by far and I would encourage you to give Castello...

    Your Corn Cob Pipe in action

    That new Dagner is sweet! I love the deep bowl. Somewhat small bowls are my only complaint with cobs, at least most of the MM types. Their Freehand and General styles are over the top in the other direction. I wish you years of enjoyment with that pipe.

    Any Hammies Here?

    There's much more to ham radio than that, but I certainly get your point about boring, pointless conversations. It would be much more exciting if we conversed about what music goes best with aromatics, whether anyone else's nose hairs seem to grow out of control when we smoke VaPers, what color...

    Any Hammies Here?

    It doesn't take much to get on the air and become active. I don't know if you suffer from PAD, but you will soon begin to feel the effects of RAD.

    Any Hammies Here?

    Glad to see that your callsign was issued in short order. With the FCC's ULS it generally takes only a few days for ham licenses to be issued nowadays. I remember waiting several weeks for my ticket back in 1969 when it was a manual process at the commission and you had to wait for the mailman...

    Any Hammies Here?

    Congratulations! A word of advice though: learn the "lingo" by listening on the ham bands. Do not use any of C.W.'s lingo unless you want to be an overnight sensation (and I don't mean in a good way). I'm sure you were joking, right? Welcome to the world of the socially and hygienically...

    Oh Peterson's, What Have You Done??

    Who cares what Peterson or any other pipe manufacturer may make, as long as they continue to make what we want? Perhaps we have trouble with the notion that our favorite manufacturers might one day make nice things for the vape crowd. Don't want our friends being nice to those people! :puffy:

    Your Corn Cob Pipe in action

    @hmhaines: Cobs get sweeter and easier smoking the older and uglier they get. Hence the hose clamp repair. It took too many years to get them that way. I have five or six other cobs, but they don't get used as often as the "Three Stooges" in the photo. They don't get used every day, maybe 2-3...
