    Went to the tobacconists to pick up some pipe cleaners and zippo fluid. Got talking to the tobaconnists and left with a tin of Peterson's Connoisseur's Choice (which he recommended for the room note) a pouch of Three Nuns (in the now ubiquitous ribbon cut) and a wind cap after experiencing a shower of sparks on the way there. Got home and realised I hadn't got the cleaners or the fluid, so I'll have to go back on Monday! :(

    Poor fella's probably got a £2,500 fine after a trading standards sting, they sent someone underage in to buy cigarettes, he didn't check their ID, and now he's got a court case coming up. Will be happy to give him my business, at the expense of etailers, for the foreseeable future. Sure, the selection isn't fantastic, but it's better than nothing, and it'd be a shame to loose them.

    Hello, folks!
    Two more Estates, along with a book called "The Gentle Art Of Smoking" by Alfred Dunhill arrived at my place.
    The pipes are a BBB crusted and a Trident Prince, both fantastic smokers! The BBB needed serious reaming and stem polishing, the Trident was in excellent condition when I got it; ready to smoke.

    The book carries a stamp on the inside by the Imperial Tobacco Company, Ogden Branch. It's a fantastic read about all aspects of smoking, the history of it, and even snuff and the development of matches and lighters are covered!

    Nice looking pipes! I don't have a copy of that book yet, although I have a copy of Dunhill's "The Pipe Book" (Mostly the history of pipes). -David

    My wife has been in northern, Ky for a week. Today she stopped at my old B and M, Strauss tobaccos and bought me some house blends. Can't wait till she lands in Phoenix tonight at 11:00PM and see what she picked up for me. She also took some pics of old friends that work there. Will post when she gets them on facebook.[​IMG]

    I'd say that Night Train and Exhausted Rooster have to be my favorite VA-dominated blends. I like VA, but usually with a touch of burley and perique to give it a little more depth and backbone.
