    Handing The Pipe Down

    I came from 2-3 generations of pipe smokers. Not that any of their pipes were family heirlooms but it was only natural that I wanted their pipes when their time passed; I had started smoking a pipe in college. I suspect feelings about my pipes & the pipes of the previous couple of generations...

    Self-Driving Cars ... Maybe

    I see it as privately owned cars will likely disappear especially in major metropolitan areas. But instead of a Taxi as we know them now you will schedule a driverless "Uber" to come pick you up. Longer trips over the road such as for business will likely be shared among small groups.

    Laid Off at the Foundry

    A "driverless" motor freight industry is predicted to happen by 2030...just 12 yrs away. The other big shocker is babies born today will never actually drive a car due to GPS/driverless technology...just 16 yrs or less.

    Ken Burns Vietnam War Documentary on PBS

    In several states now if not most (it may be federal) the law says if a HS student doesn't have enough credits to graduate with their class then they can continue attending to complete those credits until they reach their 20th birthday. In practice what happens with these "at risk kids" is the...

    Why no love for Aromatics

    I can't remember who it was that coined the phrase a couple of yrs ago when Molto Dolce was all the rage among aro smokers, that it was like smoking Play-Doh. Having just tried a sample at that time, I thought that was pretty accurate.

    Help Me Celebrate Fishnbanjo Day!

    Thanks Jay. I was playing around with exposure trying for that old faded Daguerreotype photography. Maybe I channeled the spirit of Major John S. Mosby, the Gray Ghost of the Confederacy? I don't have any flapcaps like Banjo wears. I like something offering a little bit more shade.

    "Winter's Bone" - Anybody seen it? No spoilers

    The novel "Winter's Bone" was written by Daniel Woodrell. Woodrell also wrote the historical novel "Woe to Live On" which was made into the movie "Ride With the Devil". Another great book & movie.

    One of Shelby Foote's pipesx

    Your welcome, Fnord & good to see you again. If you're interested in more you might search the threads. Besides the article I recall discussion about the pipe & his imprisonment. As I recall his pipe & some writing instruments were the only pleasures he was allowed to have.

    Question For You Photographers

    You didn't say but if the 500 slides happen to be old Kodachrome then they probably have yellowed. Scanning them yourself will allow you to remove the yellow varnish, scratches, etc from the images with digital software.

    American Revolution/Civil War: Book Recommendations Please.

    I see the point but if elected would Clay have been able to prevent the annexation? I'm not so sure. Annexation of Texas presented opportunities to make money. I often think about how Lincoln wanted the country to come together & heal at the end of the war, & was against taking a hard line in...
