Everybody hear that? I'm lovely. :mrgreen: Thanks for the retrieval Javan!
You are welcome, these articles are great indeed. I've been smoking pipes for more than 2 years and yesterday I realized that although I've managed to improve my tasting skills in these 2 years, my other skills (packing and lighting) haven't developed that much. I am still using lots of matches and relights to keep my pipe lit. Hopefully, there articles will reduce the amount of my relights.

I think he likes your mustache. :nana: Thanks for finding these, Javan. I'll be giving them a read later :clap:
:rofl: I've just realized that I used the word 'lovely' instead of 'beloved', haha :rofl: Gentlemen, please be informed that we are both married and have kids.

I love the laughs I get from here! :clap:

I've been smoking pipes for nearly thirty years, and constantly learn new things. When I first started, an older gentleman told me that you can learn how to smoke one in a day, but it would take more than one life time to master.

From a post I wrote 3 yrs. ago,
Many of you would be interested to know that Lawrence is something of a Renaissance man too. In addition to his contributions to our hobby, especially his erudite blogs, he is also a 3rd? generation Marine, an accomplished musician, biker, teacher, and holds an MBA or comparable advanced degree. So he's been around the block a few times. I tease him something awful, but he knows I hold him in high esteem.

He was a mod here for a time, but left suddenly, and not co-incidentally (I think) following the birth of a granddaughter. Cosmic may know the back story, I don't.

He is also just down the road from me. However, I have only ever met him at The Briary, and he was the one who told me about this place. Great guy. But, I haven't seen him at The Briary even for well over a year.

I didn't realize that you two were married, much less have kids. That's good to know. This is a very accepting forum, for sure. :puffy:
On dottle smoking,.. I've tried it, and with Virginias and VaPers, it really makes for a rich creamy smoke. However, the disgustingness of saving those dottles is not worth the effort, IMO. But, I would highly recommend people to try it at least once or twice. It will give you an idea of how stoved a Virginia can taste, and get even more intense as it stoves further. Worth the try, but not a very practical practice.

No sh**, Sherlock! Damp dottle is gross. But if you dry it overnight on your mantle, it'll make a perfect morning smoke.
[Gagging at the thought.]

Does your dottle lose it's flavor on the bedpost overnight?
If so, put it on the mantle...
I would be shot before sun up, I am sure.

Thanks jvnshr... Lawrence was a good friend that I've lost contact with, I miss him along with a few others that use to be very active here.

I knew that someone (like Cosmic for instance) is going to misinterpret it, so I added "married to 2 lovely ladies", then I thought that someone else (like Cosmic for instance) is going to ask if each of us is married to 2 women and deleted it.

Dottle smoking??? What are you talking about Cos?
