    McConnell's Scottish Cake in the Kapet 68....this is one of the world's great blends in my opinion....a truly perfect Virginia-perique based ready rubbed mixture. And what's more, it's got the nifty European shoe polish type lid, which holds moisture pretty decently after opening so that it does dry out once the vacuum seal is broken, but it dries slooooowly. This means eventually you can smoke it right out of the tin without drying, and still not jar it and if you smoke it quickly enough it won't get too dry. It's at the sweet spot now, and I'm tearing through it.

    On the side, writing a research paper on conceptions of sexual desire within various traditions of Buddhism

    Now, it's Virginia Spice in a 1979 pebble relief Verona Corallo 3080 natural Oom Paul. I got this one on sale from the Tinderbox back in '79. Instead of $29.95, I got it for $25.95. A good bargain for me. Smokes well, and is rather light for an Oom Paul.

    Gardening and maintenance to a car. Spike tires off and in to a garage. To the kitchen. Fired chicken and coffee. +10C/50F.

    And now, Peterson Luxury Blend in a Savinelli.

    What a turnout, 33 veteran's ranging from their 60's to their 90's, i.e. Vietnam to WWII vets were presented with Quilts of Valor, each quilt had the person's name in a block of cloth on the back and each was different, lasted over 3 hours with a break where I went out for a smoke of AJ's in the Sixten Ivarsson.

    The rumors were true. Dark Strong Kentucky in a GBD. Diet Dr. Pepper on the side.

    Found a little Irish pub not too far from our cabin. And they serve good food and allow smoking. Waiting on a ribeye drinking Guinness while smoking a mixture of SP vanilla cav and black cav. Life is good.

    What alternate universe are you vacationing in that has Irish Pubs with smoking allowed?

    That 11 is a real beauty. Next to the 95, one of my favorites. I'm trying to lay my hands on a vintage "Made in Denmark" version, but so far unsuccessful.

    MB Plumcake in a Bjarne. Green jasmine tea on the side.

    Lucky Duck Shady Path Blend (first time ever), in the Wild Honey pipe. This blend is sort of the story of my pipe smoking life, much like MDaws79's Pickle Jar Mix. LD SPB has never even smelled a pickle though. For my drink I'm enjoying a large brown mug of Cranberry Blood orange Black Tea (thanks WalkinStick). I just put some ribs on the grill. They'll be ready in two hours. Smoking time. Good afternoon PSFers
