    ***What Are You Smoking, September 2021?***

    While enjoying lively and engaging conversation with my Saturday ZOOM buddies, I smoked some McClelland's 2004 Anniversary Pipe Tobacco (a gift from Mike and Mary McNeil) in my 1891 A.D.P. bent billiard with a diamond shank, horn stem and silver ferrule. Peach/Mango Green Tea with Honey Jack in...

    ***What Are You Smoking, September 2021?***

    I had a late afternoon bowl of Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in my Chamersburg Morta pipe, a poker with a bamboo shank. Some Honey Jack in a tall tumbler with a fistful of bergs, and Bundaberg Ginger Beer was my beverage.

    ***What Are You Smoking, September 2021?***

    On a brilliant afternoon, sunny , cool and dry, I enjoyed a very satisfying smoke out under the gazebo. My pipe, a 1960s Comoy's Blue Riband 157 "Sit Easy" flat bottomed billiard, with exceptional grain, was filled with what one would naturally put in a straight grain pipe, Fred Hanna's...

    My wife and I spent the evening at our neighbor's house celebrating his birthday. As we sat on the backyard deck with him and his wife sipping Kirkland's Tawny Port, he and I smoked some Partagas Shorts. A lovely evening.

    After a late afternoon Labor Day dinner of Franks and Beans, with a tomato, artichoke, beet and feta salad, I smoked an Oliva Series O Toro, with a dram of Jack Daniel's Single Barrel Barrell Proof. A very satisfying repast.

    What are You Listening To? ~ September, 2021

    Welcome to September! "September Song" by Frank Sinatra is, for me, the finest version of this Maxwell Anderson, Kurt Weill masterpiece. It's from one of my "desert island discs" Point Of No Return.

    Favourite Female Singers

    I, too, love Maria Callas. But one of the greatest of Carmens is also one of my favorite singers, Conchita Supervia. (1895-1936) The Spanish Mezzo died young, but produced some of the most exciting recordings ever, in the 1920s and 30s. She had a vibrato that some didn't like, but she was able...
