    Finally moved into new house!

    Its been 4 months since my move to Idyllwild, 6,000 feet high village in the San Jacinto Mountains, wonderful pine forest. I haven't been on here for a while, but we are finally set up. A great place for pipes, in the forest! My recording studio in the Forest, happily working on a new CD...

    New Stanwell and Peterson

    I just completed our move to Idyllwild, a wonderful village in a huge pine forest; elev. 6000 feet, pop. 3,300. As my celebration for the move, I got 2 new pipes. I appreciate all pipe shapes, but the bent apple/billiard shape is my choice for smoking. So many variations on a theme! I'm...

    The Original Tinderbox, Inside - pic heavy...

    A while ago I posted some pics of the original Tinderbox, est. 1928 in Santa Monica. There were some requests for the inside, so here goes. The first pic is the sign outside, there was so much grafitti before that I didn't post it. Now it is once again resplendent. The guys in the pic are L...

    I have 2 meerschaums and I got curious about what it is. I combined a few paragraphs as a short explanation (if you already know this, go on to the next post and I'll be quiet!). Meerschaum is a German word describing a soft mineral, which literally means “sea foam” alluding to the belief that...

This woman is in for gastro-intestinal problems, but lives in a room at an assisted living facility; she is mentally totally there. She has chewed tobacco all her life and her...

    A small tobacco score

    My favorite tobacco is Troost Tinned Slices, only available in Denmark (as far as I can tell). The shipping makes it really expensive. I met, through linkedin, a fellow composer from Denmark. We just traded my Cartoon Music Sample Library (76 sounds compiled over 15 or so years) for 4 50 gr...

    A pipe smoking adventure

    We spent last week up at our house in the mile high pine forest of Idyllwild. There has been a pile of poop on our deck in Idyllwild each time we go, I usually clean it up. This time, I decided to sit outside and see who was pooping. I sat down around 9:30 pm, Peter Stokkebye Bulls Eye Flake...

    Pipe Mud - Thanks!

    I thought I was carefully breaking in my newest pipe, but I found that I had a 1/16 inch deep, 1/8 inch wide, 1/2 inch long burn - DOH!!! Quite a hot spot!!! I remembered a thread here about pipe mud, I can't find the thread, but I remembered how to do it. I got an ashtray of a friend's...

    Pipe tobacco tax petition

    I just signed the "Pipe Tobacco Tax Threat Petition" I received from Pipes Mag. It also makes it very easy to email your Congressperson and Senators. I hope everyone does this, it can actually work! Here in CA, they wanted to make problems for classic car hobbyists and there was so much...

    My day - so far...

    Left my house at 7am, drove my Spitfire from Santa Monica, 10 miles up the coast to Malibu. Sat on top of a hill overlooking the ocean, 2 pipes and a tin of Troost Slices. Watching the day grow, enjoying the pipes. This was a great way to start out today.
