    Having My First Kid - It's a Boy!

    This one is so simple, but I had totally forgotten how much I liked playing catch as a kid. Thanks for the reminder!

    Having My First Kid - It's a Boy!

    All good advice, gents! Looking forward to the adventure. Can't wait until he's a bit older and we can go hiking and all that fun stuff.

    Having My First Kid - It's a Boy!

    Already looking forward to the day I can share this hobby of ours with him. Tell me fun stories of raising your sons!

    Nasal Snuff

    I for sure get the black snot, especially with coarser snuffs. It's not quite as bad with fine snuffs like an Irish toast. Definitely my least favorite part about it, but if I could just control myself and only take a pinch or two it wouldn't be as bad. I don't snuff around my wife because both...

    Nasal Snuff

    I've got you covered on the Latakia snuff - Sir Walter Scott's Latakia Blend Snuff 15g, Sir Walter Scott's, Mr.Snuff Online - https://mrsnuff.com/walter-scotts-latakia-blend-snuff-p-3788.html I'd be interested to try a pinch or two, but I don't want to commit to a whole tin since I'm not a big...

    Nasal Snuff

    Even if you snuff a lot (and I do), it's gotta be the most cost effective vitamin N delivery system there is. Pipe smoking is almost expensive compared to snuff! I spent ~$100 on my last snuff order, and it's hard to calculate, but I suspect it will last well over a year, maybe even pushing...

    Nasal Snuff

    The ones I find myself returning to the most are F&T High Dry T, WoS Irish 22, Viking Thor's Hammer, Bernard Zwiefacher, SWS Lundy Foot & Havana Toast in no particular order. You should be able to try all those out for under $30-40 depending on what sizes you get. Top three would probably be...

    Massachusetts Flavored Tobacco Ban

    Wilke does have a storefront in Fall River, but it's not called Wilke, it's Old Firehouse Smoke Shop. They blend in the back, and sell Wilke, Peterson, and a few other random blends from various brands. The new owner of Wilke is a nice guy, and it would be a shame if they had to stop selling a...

    How Would You Build Your Cellar: A Timing Question?

    I haven't really had the money to cellar deeply since returning to piping (especially with my first child on the way), but with a potential ban around the corner, I'm feeling the heat. Even if this one doesn't go through, I am truly seeing the writing on the wall for the first time. I knew...

    How Would You Build Your Cellar: A Timing Question?

    I really recommend you check out Swedish snus. Snuscentral.com has a wide variety. The shipping to the US is steep, so you have to order in bulk to make it worth it, but it's much better for your health, and should end up cheaper than cigarettes by a decent margin. If you like straight tobacco...

    Blend Similar to Presbyterian Mixture With a Touch More Latakia?

    Sub-clergy represent! I'm a subdeacon! I was actually realizing as I was smoking Presbyterian Mixture the connection to the Greek term, and realizing I had no idea what they believed. Still haven't gotten around to looking it up yet, haha.

    First Impression: Cornell & Diehl's Haunted Bookshop

    I have had them back to back, and definitely find them similar, but I prefer the Billy Budd Blonde. I feel the cigar leaf kind of rounds it out and adds a nice creaminess to the smoke, along with a little extra depth to the flavor. I wasn't overly impressed by HB, but I'm not a hardcore burley...

    Looks like south western Idaho, around where I grew up. Makes me homesick...

    Cant Stop Smelling My Jars

    I can only smoke once a week, and I when I do smoke I usually want to pop a tin on a new blend (I've got quite a backlog...), so everything in the jars is aging. I would love to pop them open for a smell, but I don't want to disrupt this aging process. Drives me crazy! Sometimes I sniff the lid...

    What do you call a good pipe tobacco

    I like a decent nic kick, no bite - VA/Pers and Orientals mostly. FVF, McC Pebblecut, McC Classic Samsun are all favorites. Trying to find substitutes for the McC now, but haven't found anything quite as satisfying. I'm trying to get into burley blends, mostly because of the nic content and...

    Blend Similar to Presbyterian Mixture With a Touch More Latakia?

    I finally got around to trying PM last night. Normally I'm allergic to Latakia, so I've been putting it off, but wow! It was an amazing smoke! Floral, spicy, sour, smoky. I wasn't expecting it to be so good. To my greater surprise, I was actually wishing there was just a tiny bit more latakia in...

    Unique Ways To Carry Around Pipe Tobacco

    This company called Icetool sells aluminum cans meant for carrying around loose snus. They're pricey for what they are ($30), but I've considered getting one for snus and pipe tobacco. I have a feeling the metal can will help keep things from drying out too much, and they're small enough to fit...

    No Fuss Blend - No Bite, Decent Flavor, Medium Nic, Nice Room Note...What Do You Recommend?

    I've got a weekly meeting with a friend who only smokes during this one time a week, and he puffs like a chimney, even if I warn him that slowing down might be helpful. I don't think he's particularly interested in pipe smoking as a real hobby, and when we're talking I can't focus too much on...

    Samuel Gawith Black Forest Tin Rust from P&C

    Looks like you're right, Anthony. My brain flipped the bend in the tin and made it look like it was the outside. I agree, not much P&C can do.

    FDA Begins Unannounced Inspections of Pipe Makers

    Next time to avoid any issues it's probably easier to just copy/paste your articles instead of linking. I enjoyed it and don't necessarily mind that it's your private blog, but I can understand the sentiment that maybe it's not the best idea to link to it. Always good to hear from someone who...
