    Smoking While Driving: Doohickeys And Thingamajigs

    My ashtray is way too small to accommodate any of my pipes while driving. As a result, I put the pipes in my lap and then forget they are there when I get out of the car. Most of my pipes have huge pits in them now from landing on the pavement. This is not the life I wanted for them. My car is a...

    Piping Mishaps: Tales of Destruction

    I'm starting this thread so I can feel better about myself at your expense. I cannot be the only one who has broken a pipe through my own clumsiness, miscalculation or neglect. My first pipe was a Mayfair stamped over Custombilt bulldog. The exact shape is a Hendon. I found it in a house I was...

    Box Pass Update Anyone?

    Sorry, I haven't been paying real close attention. Where is the huge box of tobacco we were passing around? I forget when the last update was I got in email. Any news would be appreciated. Thanks. - Michael

    Grey Hair Is Trendy

    Before the Holiday I went to get an IPA at a well stocked local liquor store. It had been years since I had been there and the smaller breweries have, to put it mildly, been VERY busy. There were DOZENS of weird named, and weird flavored, IPAs to choose from and I spent a good deal of time...

    Gonzo Journalism and ODF

    With all the non-tobacco topics floating around concerning media events, art, abuse of power, people bleating like goats at the hands of "the man," I'm reminded of the quote by George McGovern's campaign manager about the book "Fear and Loathing on the Campaign Trail." It was "the least factual...

    What Are You Driving?

    Not trying to turn this into a car site. Just Curious. Paid off the 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee on a Friday and it threw a rod on Saturday. Instead of shelling out for a rebuild, decided to get another vehicle. Test drove a little Subaru because they are dependable, get good mileage and have all...

    My Latest TAD Direction

    Since receiving a sample of Condor from Oldreddog and sampling the infamous Boxpass a while back, I have yearned for the Lakeland-esque notes of flowery grandma soap and bathmats to compliment my usual VaPers. I've long been restricted in my TAD due to car payments. Now my vehicle is paid off...

    Googly Eyed Cob

    After three weeks of near paralyzing pain in my lumbar spine, it has finally let up and allowed me to get some things done without wanting to cry like a baby. I cleaned some briar in anticipation of the Box Pass coming my way and decided to accentuate the blob on my surviving cob with a pair of...

    Ron Glass Passed Away

    2016 has not lost its tragic grip just yet as Ron Glass of Barney Miller, Firefly and Agents of Shield has passed at 71. I've enjoyed this brilliant actor's delivery, comic timing and commanding presence since I was a little kid. I wish his family and friends well in this difficult time. Fuck...

    A Bitter Time Of Year

    I fully expect this to be removed, but I have to speak up. My Father died 9 years ago yesterday. Nine years ago, the 22nd was Thanksgiving. His grandfather had Native American blood and was given land by the government to farm. Believe me, they didn't just hand it over to everyone. I don't even...

    What Blends Do Jedi Smoke?

    This evening I found myself performing the usual Jedi stuff; Feeling the force, kissing my twin sister, ruminating on the power of the Dark Side, and, of course, performing routine maintenance on my lightsaber. The power supply had gone been bad, and I needed a sit down and a full pipe to get...

    Review- McClelland Syrian Super Balkan

    I scored a 10 year old can today. Opened it and it smelled like a fine dark chocolate. Believe me, I know chocolate. Popped it in a bent billiard and went to town. First retro-hale was oriental. Then it slowly settled into the Syrian, I'm guessing, because it tasted similar to the Turkish I...
