    Fire And Explosion On The Bonhomme Richard

    Fire And Explosion On The Bonhomme Richard

    That'd be " Greyhound", based on the novel " The Good Shepard" by C. S. Forester. It is a shame we won't have the opportunity to see it on the big screen.

    Hello from Central Pennsylvania

    Yea, they're good guys but not much pipe stuff. Weis Market on Martin st. has Carter Hall & Middleton's Cherry Blend pouches. I usually make a trip to Boswell's in Alexandria to stock up.

    Hello from Central Pennsylvania

    I'll say. The B&M pipe shops are gone along with the independent book stores, The Diner, and the Scorpion. But we do have several high rise buildings and more on the way. Change is inevitable but I miss the State College of thirty years ago.

    RIP Ken Osmond, aka Eddie Haskell of "Leave it to Beaver"

    Too bad, Eddie Haskell was my favorite character on the show. Wasn't it an urban legend, not true, that he was John Holmes?

    Does Re-Hydrating Affect Tobacco Flavor?

    I don't often smoke during the winter but I keep some tobacco readily available in a vintage glass humidor. The humidor does not seal air tight so I use humidifier discs to keep the tobacco from becoming too dry. It seems to me that the flavor diminishes after repeating the process of...
