    Do You Have Rotations? Do You Rotate Your Rotations? A Rotating Rumination

    I have a very detailed rotation that takes into account the tobacco that pipe smokes best, chamber size, date last smoked, country of origin (pipe), country of origin (tobacco), the season, relative humidity and the moon phase. It works like a Rolex on steroids and is locked safely in the part...

    Another favorite gone. Sitting around the campfire with sundowners, Tom gets sung quite a bit, usually "Me and Jesus" followed by "I like Beer"......usually several times:) Rest In Peace.

    Soliciting Advice on My Next Pipe Purchase

    Check out some of the Upshalls on eBay. They generally run large, and fall in your budget. Or if you can find an estate Rinaldo Titania those are HUGE and Rinaldo is an excellent smoker.

    Briars With Small Bowls?

    If you want good briar and smaller size, try older Sasienis. Sasieni and their sub-brands are phenomenal pipes, by and large are smaller than I like (I generally stay in the Ashton XXX, Group 5, etc range) but they smoke so well I'm always on the hunt.

    A Sad Post

    Not knowing your exact situation, I've been right there, almost the exact time length too. It hurt so much inside it physically hurt. And every second of pain and misery was worth it for what I have now. I have a wife that cares about me, and children I love more than breathing. People deserve...
