    Latakia Lunt Weather

    With this cold weather, I find myself reaching more and more for the dark leaf. It's also the time of year when the parks empty out, and you can stroll the dog smoking a pipe, without having to deal with the public. My favorite walkabout here in northern NJ is the Grover Cleaveland Park, noted...

    Bowl Sniffers

    Some of us like to sniff their bowls or stems whilst piping. It releases a whole other set of sensory olfactory stimuli and in certain tabacs distinct flavor impressions can only be picked up in this manner. Any other bowl or stem sniffers out there?

    Comoy's Little Apples

    Just had some luck on eBay scoring another Comoy's lil' apple, shape #159 (first photo). This one is a Tradition, bought for only $54. It's an old one, maybe pre-war, because it has the old Made in England in a circle, no London, stamp. Post war Comoys are stamped Made in London in a circle...
