    Daughters and Ryan Ramback Balkan at RyoSupply!

    Ramback Balkan - 16oz Bag - This looks like one of the blends that will be discontinued under D&R's new ownership. Kaira (Russ O.'s daughter and a charming young woman) works there and tipped me off that they have found a few bags.

    My Ship Came In. Literally.

    Back in the early days of December, I placed a small order with Esterval’s in Germany. I’ve bought from them many times over the years, and the experience has always been first-rate. A very easy to use website, an immense inventory of blends we’ll never see here, great pricing and responsive...

    Pipe Tobacco...Or Dog Food?

    Champ, Field Trial, Good Dog, Hunter’s Special, Old Glory, Happy Life, Principle, Retriever, River Bend, and Sportsman’s Pride would be fine names for pipe tobacco. But they aren’t. They are the brand names of recently recalled dog food. Maybe there’s a joint marketing opportunity here? “It’s a...

    PM's: Recipient Not Indicated

    If you send a PM, the recipient is not shown in the conversation until/if they respond. So, if you send a PM, and the recipient doesn't respond, and you go back later to look at the PM, you will have no idea who you sent to. I ran into this problem while running the Secret Santa. I sent out...

    The Ultimate Delayed Gratification

    While cleaning up the garage today, I uncovered a set of cobs marked for an A/B taste test of Conor Plug and a War Horse prototype blend. This goes back to before War Horse Bar was released, maybe 2013. Russ had sent me some samples to try, and as it was the dead of winter, I retired to the...

    The pop-up balloon boxes are making me crazy. Is there any way to disable them, perhaps on a individual user basis?

    A Style Change Request

    The new forum is worth it's weight in sandalwood oil, if for nothing other than being able to add hyperlinks. However, the color of those hyperlinks make them difficult to read. Can they be changed to the standard blue color, or something else that will read better against the brown/orange...

    Lightning Bugs

    I’m enjoying a bowl of My Own Blend Square Flake, (hat tip Les Young) in a Stanwell Royal Danish 996, as our local Lightning Bug contingent puts on one of the most spectacular displays I’ve ever seen. A bit ironic, as there are no lightning bugs in Denmark.
