    I have only about 20 tins stored and 3 of them are blends I haven't tried yet. I try to limit the number of tins I have open to only 1 or 2 so they won't dry out. I'm too lazy to transfer them to sealed jars. I have about a dozen blends in my regular rotation but the list is expanding rapidly.

    My wife nearly crapped a stack of rubber nickels when she saw my stockpile of 20 tins. If I had as big a cellar as some of you guys she would have a s--- hemorrhage.

    I have about 6-8 open at any one time. I really need to get better about storing in jars.

    I have about 40 jars that I pull from. I have been trying to whittle it down some but I just keep adding to them. I am not good at disciplining myself when it comes to tobacco. :puffy:

    You're winning and the other you is losing... except when you lose and the other you wins! The way I see it, you're both winners. Or losers. But even when you lose, you win. So I think of both yous as Winners! So... a toast to both Flatbush Pauls! :toast:

    I only ever have one tin open at a time, right now it's a tin of UF. The Guinness philosophy ("Good things come to those who wait") seems to be in my blood though, luckily I suffer neither PAD nor TAD.
