    Third Times the Charm.

    Joined many years ago, got to 7K posts, quit, came back and 3 posts later called it quits again. So I will try to maintain some control this time. Looks like a lot of my buddies are no longer here, par for the course. I still have on my Bucket List to someday meet Kevin, hopefully on my next...

    2 Seater Leather Pipe Couch

    Got this Castleford leather pipe couch for 2 pipes from Iwan Reis this week, and it is one of the best accessories I've bought so far. My Peterson Kinsale is totally round on the bottom and this thing cradles it nicely so that I can sit the Peterson on it without it rolling around on the table...

    John Rolfe-Peach Brandy tobacco

    Has any of the Old Timers smoked this popular blend back in the 70's? A great friend stopped by on Saturday and saw my pipes, and told me he smoked only this blend when he smoked a pipe years ago. I researched and found out that Lane Limited makes a copy of it.

    Fire ants-Beware and take them seriously

    I never paid any attention to them until Saturday. I was at my son's new house and was inserting a rock wedge in front of his mailbox post to straighten it out, when a bunch of Fire Ants got on my ankles and legs, man they sure move quickly. They got me in about 6 or 7 places. 1/2 hour later...

    Howard Restore-A-Finish products

    For all of you who are buying used pipe racks, if you are not familiar with Howard Restore-A-Finish products, go to their website and watch the video at the bottom.

    Phil: Congrats on sticking around for 2K enjoyable posts. You are one of my favorites, usually responding with empathy/understanding/maintaining self esteem of others.

    Cajunguy restores my Grandfathers pipes

    After seeing the picture by Uberam3ica of the pipe Cajunguy restored for him, I decided he was the right person to send my cherished pipes I inherited to. My older brother had them in his basement for the last 50 years and I found out about them by casually telling him I'd been trying to track...

    Olfactory Orgasm w/ a bag of Penzance

    I opened a new bag of Penzance tonight and took a quick sniff of the inside of the bag, then decided to savor the aroma of the inside of a fresh bag. It was like sniffing a rich, luxurious herb reserved only for Kings. A 8oz bag fills up the glass container I use for storage ( found it at...

    Garage Attic Exhaust Fan Installation

    Instead of freezing my ass off with the garage door open, I decided to install an exhaust fan in the attic, so I mounted the 12x12 ceiling exhaust grille in the garage ceiling, centrally located. It is a Greenheck CSP-700 which is a 700 CFM rated fan and I'm installing an in-line speed...

    Largest bowl Churchwarden

    What are some of the larger bowl Churchwarden pipes out there? Most of them seem to have small bowls on them similar to a typical Peterson bowl. One of these days, I'll get a long pipe, but I'd like to see what's available in a long smoke version.

    1 month layoff 4 Insurance blood test

    I'm going to take off a month as I'm going to have to be subjected to a pesky blood test as part of the usual pre screening for Life Insuarance. The insurance industry has brainwashed the Sheeple into accepting that it is the most socially accepted form of gambling. We are gambling that we...
