    I love the way you present the pipes Spill. That first pic was spectacular ( and that is a VERY nice pipe too! ).

    Hey Griz, I use a cigar cutter to cut into small medallions, then rub them out gently.

    Had jury duty today, since I was already downtown I figured I would make the trip worth it and stop in our local Pipe shop. I picked up a lat bomb called "Darwin Asa" , it smells great, and I'm sure like all of their blends it will smoke that way to.

    In an effort to visit the classics I went to Walgreens and bought a pouch of Captain Black. I actually liked it quite well. Grizette said it had a strange mix of rootbeer and chocolate smells to it. :confused:

    Anything Purchased BEFORE Thanksgiving is not construed as an inconsiderate gift to thyself

    Good thing mine made it a week early !

    Jesus man, what a birthday present. With friends like that, well, I dunno, you've got awesome friends.

    Unfortunately, I'm afraid I must inform you that no one human being is allowed to be gifted TWO Castellos in one lifetime. Yeah, I remember that Sea Rock you got. That goes against all laws of the nature of human decency, not to mention I'm tremendously jealous. :D

    Mac Baren, Burley London Blend 100g
    McClelland, Grey Havens 100g

    I saw a few really nice-looking Nordings with the rustication in the B&M earlier when I purchased the tobacco -- dang PAD!

    Good gosh, man! I have some extra closet space, I'd be happy to help you store most of that ;) Enjoy the Newminster, they do make a quality leaf!

    Bought some mason jars this week and cleaned up my act ;) Here's my current stash, minus a large ceramic tub with my SP BC. My holiday stash of Boswell's should be arriving today, I've some taller jars set aside for those.

    So far I've yet to buy tobacco in quantities larger than 4oz., except the aforementioned Smoker's Pride Black Cavendish. This may change this winter. I plan on sampling a great deal of Mac Baren aromatic tins, which in bulk can be similarly priced. Also, English Luxus and Superior Navy Flake will certainly be around in great amounts. Love those blends.
