Lots going on in my life lately. Got a new job last year that has kept me very busy - but it's a great job so...

    Have to share this...

    Flying in my backyard. We were jus trelaxing on the deck when I thought I saw a bald eagle off to the side but it disappeared so quickly that I figured it was the osprey we've had hanging around. Then this giant flew right in front of us! Fortunately we had the camera with us (sorry it's a bit...

    Backyard Wildlife - all in one pic!

    Hey guys - sorry I've been absent for a while. A new job keeps me plenty busy - add a wife and two *almost teenage* daughters, and I just don't have much in the way of free time lately. I do try to keep up though when I can. Anyway, I thought I'd share a photo I took this morning - a family of...

    Checking in...

    I've been absent for a while and I thought I'd give a brief update. My life has had some challenges lately and I've started a new job - all of which have kept me too busy to really participate. The new job is great I must say. More money, which helps a lot. Some of the challenges unfortunately...

    Was Copernicus Wrong? Is Our Solar System the Center of the Universe?

    This is so cool that I had to share it here - many thanks to Brian64 for bringing it to my attention. Mind you, this is another "out there" topic, so bear with me. :puffy: I will try to be brief. Basically, scientists have discovered the potentially earth shattering possibility that our very...

    Was Reading an Article on Bugsy Siegel When Suddenly...Pipe

    I have a morbid fascination with mobsters, so when I saw this story on Bugsy Siegel, I took a look. In one of the photos I noticed a pipe (Canadian) and some Sir Walter Raleigh tobacco. Now who's pipe was it? The District Attorney's...

    41st All-Japan Pipe Smoking Championship

    Thought this was an interesting post. Via Reddit: This was held in Asakusa with 227 participants. Each paid ¥16,000 (which I believe equals about $136 dollars). Includes entry, the pipe and the after-party. http://imgur.com/a/BbSUG

    Near-Death Experiences

    I thought I'd stir the pot a little and post another "out there" topic, namely NDEs or Near-Death Experiences. :puffy: I had one (though not technically near death) when I was 7 years old. Of course skeptics will tell you these experiences are all "in the head". However, for many experiencers...

    Compliments On My Pipe Smoke

    Just thought I'd share. One was from a UPS delivery man who, while dropping off a package on my front porch, caught a whiff of my pipe and commented "love the smell of that pipe!" And the other was while I was visiting my folks in DE, a GE repairman was leaving while I was enjoying a smoke on...

    Piping on Vacation

    Took a trip to Lewes, DE to visit my folks and enjoyed a pipe at the harbor. Very breezy however and tough to get it lit, but light it I did!

    New to Me: Peterson Pipe of the Year 2006 Smooth

    Peterson Pipe of the Year 2006 Smooth Just rec'd this beauty from smokingpipes.com for $165. I've seen these go for a lot more and I've coveted one of these for quite some time but held off due to the price. SP rated its condition a 4.9/5 (and fortunately SP's ratings are very accurate). Very...

    How Important is a Pipe Maker's History to You?

    Generally speaking I run my life with strict adherance to reason and logic (however flawed that may be). But when it comes to pipes, I am a romantic at heart. I have a thing for pipe manufacturers that have a bit of history to them. It's why I own several Peterson pipes - I guess I like the...

    My Kind of Dunhill

    I am not a Dunhill fanatic, but I do appreciate their history and if I had the means, this would be definitely be found in my pipe rack. :puffy: http://www.smokingpipes.com/pipes/estate/england/moreinfo.cfm?product_id=144219

    In a previous post of my trip to the antique store, I picked up a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer book printed in the 1940s. And inside was a pipe smoking reindeer - ya gotta love that!
