    Florida Home Inventory Completed (Almost)

    I've moved around 1/3 of my cellar to our Florida home and with the addition of the man cave, decided it was time to organize and take stock. Here's what 150 or so pounds of pipe tobacco looks like. The top shelf is a lot of my favorite blends such as Vauen No 14 and F&T Cut virginia Plug...

    Man Cave Finally Complete

    Building in Florida in a major PITA With all the permitting required. Seems like you need to obtain a permit to allow you to apply for permits. Throw in some material shortages and the lead times, this was a much longer process than anticipated. But worth the wait. The man cave is 12 x 24 and...

    Somebody Please Buy This

    Been considering a basket weave Meer for some time. I absolutely don't need another Meer. Unfortunately, this one caught my eye at Meerchaum Market. I have inquired about who the carver is, whether it easily pass a fluffy pipe cleaner and the weight. In the off chance the answers all meet my...

    Nice Deal At SP

    This pipe caught my eye on the side billboard here. I clicked through to look at it. Briarworks for $110, $104.50 if your a silver level. I'm in no way in the market for a pipe but was so impressed by how nice this one looks and the low price I had to share. Briarworks Bulldog at SP

    Everyone Looking Forward To Reacher?

    For those unaware, Reacher is a new series that will be introduced on Prime Feb 4. Based upon the series of novels written by Lee Child, one of my favorites. The Reacher character in the novel is 6'5" and 250 lbs which made the two Reacher movies starring that shrimp Cruise rather silly. The...

    Anybody Smoke a Pipe while Playing Golf?

    I play a lot of golf and usually smoke 3 Cigars per round. Been wondering how a pipe might work. I'd probably use cobs as it is inevitable I'd lose and break some. I'm a bit concerned about wind, lighting and keeping the pipe lit and hot embers burning holes in my clothes. Anybody here have...

    Santa Brobs Back In Time For Christmas

    I see he has posted. I'm wondering if a lump of coal may not have been the preferable Christmas gift. :poop: Welcome back Brobs.

    4 Year Old Newminster 400 - Exceptional!

    Ran across a jar of 2/18 Newminster 400 last week and decided to pop it. The almost 4 years have worked well for this blend. I get more citrus sweet and tart from this blend than maple sugar sweetness. The flavors are stronger and more prominent after 4 years with the rough edges smoothed out...

    Coffee & Tea For Me

    Coffee in the morning and brewed tea the rest of the day are my drinks of choice these days. Lots of water while playing golf. I'd likely make the Tea Purists do a double face palm with my choices but it's a lot healthier than the sugar laced stuff I used to consume. I started with David's Tea...

    Happy Thanksgiving And Safe Travels To All!

    I think most of us here have much to be thankful for. I'm also thankful for this forum that has provided so much in the way of entertainment, information and even some very nice friendships. As I grow older, Thanksgiving has become my favorite holiday. Of course I enjoy the great food but most...

    I apologize Jesse For Being Remiss

    I can't believe I overlooked @sablebrush52 act of generosity. About six weeks or so ago, I mentioned on a thread discussing it, how I missed out on the release of WCC Glass Slipper. A few days later, PM from Jesse telling me to shoot him my Addy, he'd send me a 4 Oz bag he had that was extra. 4...

    Broke My 8 month PAD Discipline

    Saw this Rubio on Jose's Facebook page, was surprised it was still available. I couldn't resist. A departure from his normal great blasts, he told me this was the best Birdseye briar he ever carved.
