    Famous Pipe Smoker Died on this Day in 1963

    His name was CS Lewis. Aldous Huxley died on the same day. There was another famous man who died that day but his name slips my mind. ;)

    New (Cheap) Lighter Day

    I have it both ways. I have two premium lighters, SD DuPont and Kiribi. Love them both. I have some Djeep ones in the drawer in the unlikely event that both of my other lighters are no functioning.

    An AHA Moment

    My aha moment is to make sure it’s dry enough, pack it, and touch fire to it. Smoking it without lighting it is like smoking bubblegum cigarettes. No offense intended.

    ***What Are You Smoking, November 2021?***

    ’03 vintage Best Brown Flake in Ingo Garbe and AWESOME DuPont Lighter purchased from our own Lighter F. Absolutely magical! My first ever bowl to which I could apply that adjective. Just delicious from first light to bottom of the bowl.

    Learned a Couple of Techniques today. What are some of yours?

    The most important “technique“ I’ve discovered is drying the tobacco. Dry it more than you think it needs and it’s probably just dry enough.

    My New Arctic Novel Contains Much Pipe-Smoking

    Finished the book. Great read. Some are good writers, others good storytellers, while a rare few are both. Odobenus is both. And what’s not to like about a novel with a dog named Sixten?
