    Old Ideas Die Hard

    No, I'm not talking about the idea that Frank will get his Chipmunk behind bars and out the door before the advent of Summer, I'm talking about the realization of how few good new ideas are really out there! Be it on television or on the cinema, there is little new stuff to attract me. The...

    Not many showed much awareness when announced that Alan Holdsworth died recently. I just caught this human interest story that if you don't already know, are a fan or of musical interest, you might find interesting: Holdsworth Funeral

    RIP: Strange Events

    RIP, Bill O'Reilly, I don't know what is stranger, that Fox News canned your show overnight and without warning, the centerpiece of its news federation that built the network over the past 20 years despite being the most popular show they had just because of allegations which Bill firmly denied...

    Not Very

    Was on the phone making an appointment with a dentist's office and she was going down the line: Name? Address? DOB? Insurance? Then she got to asking: SOCIAL? And I answered: Not very. She didn't like that. :mrgreen:

    The Pipe Test

    I was running a thought experiment the other day asking myself what people like about their pipes. I mean, some people go out spending $800 for a Dunhill, BBB or Barling, others swear by Savinellis, Petes, Big Bens, Ascortis, etc., and while a lot of it is antique, collector, and rarity issues...

    Last Person Born In The 1800's Dies

    The last person known verified to have been born in the 19th Century (1899) just passed away at the age of 117, and is one of the five known oldest people ever. Interesting reading, especially how she lived against her doctor's advice! She had already lived a pretty full life by the time the...

    Honorable Mention, RIP:

    I don't normally mention deaths like this because most people mainly focus on names they know, famous, household names, entertainers and the like, but I felt this man, probably unknown to all of us, deserved mention for his staggering contributions. Robert Taylor, 85 when he passed away on the...

    Line Expansion

    With the looming FDA, I'm surprised to see some of the expanding lines (perhaps started before the FDA thing), but hear little/no talk of them. Has anyone tried Golden Triangle and do you taste any significant differences between the different Perique varietals? What about the Gurkha blends? I...

    Reality Television

    Used to be that you watched TV to get as far away from reality as possible, but these days I wonder how real many of the reality TV shows are? Does anyone ever watch Finding Bigfoot (Animal Planet) or Mountain Monsters (Destination America)? I really enjoy both programs but it makes me wonder...

    The Final Stretch

    The moment is close approaching when I cross the line of that holy grail of grails, that of going into the four-digit post territory! It will be here sooner than you know---- quick! It is still not too late to bump me off the forum! :mrgreen: Surely, this must be one of the great moments in...

    And Now For A Better Topic

    It has really been the dregs these past few days, it seems that the more substantive the topic, the quicker it shorts out across the wires and blows the mains. So I've been really wondering, I see all kinds of bargain blends out there, stuff that SWR, CH and Capt. Black are a step up from! And...
