    Smoking in Remembrance

    The timing of pairing a pipe and tobacco to honor your father will come when you're ready. For me, took a couple of months after my wife passed. I hadn't smoked much of anything in about 3 years for the pure enjoyment and reflection. My condolences and prayers to you and your family and a raised...

    Sick Next Day After Smoking

    That's way too easy of an answer. OGS definitely contributes, but no, there's something about some blends that just mess me up.

    Sick Next Day After Smoking

    Agreeing with wasnsfisher and deathmetal a bit. Some tobaccos would cause a migraine with myself or my late wife. There's a couple of blends that no matter how slow I smoke, or how hydrated I am, I get sick from it. Usually during smoking. I always chopped it up to a certain type of tobacco, or...

    Are Forums Dying, And Why?

    I've been on several forums over the years, most I can't even remember what sites they were. But one thing is consistent for me. If the content is always evolving, growing, changing, then I'm more likely to stay on said forum longer. If the forum is too limiting in content, then it's just...

    Question About Your Local Tobacco Shop

    They want to expand into liquor as well, but wanted to test the waters to see if beer and wine works. Liquor licenses are quite expensive in the county.

    Question About Your Local Tobacco Shop

    Bear with me, this could be a little long...I'm not on this forum as much anymore for various and personal reasons, however, I do drop by from time to time. I am the president of Lanier Smoker's Club in the NE Georgia area and operate the club through Facebook. It's a club that my wife and I...

    I've been on and off this site for a long time now. Lots of lost people. I think some I still have in my facebook, but don't talk with them much.

    If nothing else, the aliens won't take your pipe. :nana: Interesting concept, though.

    Haddo's Delight Oh Yeah

    First time I smoked it, was while waiting in line to pick up the kids from school. When I dropped out of the van, I almost dropped to the ground :rofl: *edited to add* and that sit was like 40 minutes, so I put it in a large pipe.

    How many...

    I have 57 total in my cabinet/bag. 8-1/2 are meers, 3 are cobs. This doesn't count a toolbox I have full of pipes needing restoration.

    Advice on Meerschaum?

    It's been said that by wearing gloves, you keep the oils from your hand from creating patchy spots in the browning of the pipe. I haven't seen any evidence of this. My meers, I just smoke them like any other pipe, for the most part. Been awhile since I'd pulled one down, so might have to.

    That could definitely work and give a little insulation in the process
