So you can make us Xmas dinner but not help raise the new garden shed? Sounds like a better deal!I'm reformed, not Orthodox.
It's actually a nickname from high school, when I had Amish like mutton chops. Some close friends still refer to me as Amish and I used it as my first name while moonlighting as a line cook to avoid questions about my day job. I even have a chef's coat with Amish embroidered as my name.
A fast smoking competition? What’s the origin of this tradition or event. How fast is fast?@The Amish Tyrant I'm not taking part in fast smoking competitions now as it's same weekend as the Derbyshire Woodland Festival which I'm more interested in!
I really enjoy traditional crafts such as willow weaving / basket making and woodcarving. I get to meet the Vikings as well
No more Clan for the Clay King; it smells and tastes off...
That’s like asking Henry Ford whether he had a Model T! He’ll know!Jim, since I’ve seen you smoking some aged EGR, I bought 2 Tins back in February of this year for the cellar. What’s your experience on aging this tobacco? I’ve been tempted to open one up to smoke now, but will wait if a little more time is beneficial. You must’ve bought a lot of 2014?
maybe I need to buy more?
Thank you!Last warm day (relatively speaking) for a while, as the next storm rolls in this week, so it's time to capitalize. Esoterica Scarborough (sample) in a Foyard Beechwood straight Rhodesian. A small bowled beaut perfect for a quickie as I knock out some work in the studio. Thanks to @TheIronMonkey for both of these!
Bird report: California scrub-jay, White-breasted nuthatch, Steller's jay, California thrasher, California towhee, California quail, House finch, Dark-eyed junco, White-crowned sparrow, Chipping sparrow, Common raven, Northern flicker, and Oak titmouse. When Ace Hardware sends me Black Friday coupons centered around birdseed and other avian products, it makes me wonder if the company's board of directors consists entirely of birds.
@Carol glad you're feeling better. Thread wasn't the same without you!
Today's my 2nd anniversary here. Thanks for making me feel so welcome!
