    Hello PSF!
    Its been months since I've posted, dealing with work and technology issues kept me away for too long. It look like there is a lot to catch up on, new members, new format, new Moderators/Staff, so Ill just do my best to jump back in and start in from here.
    Its been a Burley kind of summer, smoking MCB and MacB GE lately. Looking forward to sinking more time into PSF!

    Welcome back, Atom! Been missing your posts. What's new in Boston these days?

    Smoking Frog Morton Cellar (thanks, YAPPG!) in the Kaywoodie PSF POY 2013. Still drinking water, even though the iceberg ghosts are driving me nuts! They just keep rattling and rattling and rattling - will it never stop???

    Thank you! Im glad to be back.
    I really got into the habit of following along with what people were smoking, especially those "I just opened a new tin of..."posts. I love those. Im sure I went through some form of PSF de-tox by being away, but now I can get my fix in the always entertaining WAYS thread.

    Smoking my next to last bowl of this bag of Dunbar in a straight sandblasted black billiard 2013 PSF POY Kaywoodie with an amber colored lucite stem. More ice water with properly trained icebergs is still my drink. We try to set a better example for dBear.

    Last smoke before sleep is Blend No. 5 in a 1949 medium bend Dunhill Shell. Thought I could use some latakia at the end of the day.

    Another PSF:er who smokes Clan in a cob and, apparently, amits it.:appl:

    Am I the only one who admits to smoking Borkum Riff and enjoying it? Maybe we need a support group? BR smokers anonymus.

    Good morning! A big bowl of PPP in the Pete 305 to start the day. I'm sure it will be another long one at work--sigh. Have a great day, all.

    Slacker.

    Where's the EGR?

    Now you're talkin!

    As for yours truly, some dried out old Middleton Apple, simmering away in my bent MM Legend. I never thought much of this tobacco, but in a cob it really sings. Very nice aroma.

    Good Morning,

    Muggy bugger of a night, and it looks to continue today. That's the biggest of my complaints, so I guess things are pretty good.

    I smoked a big Squatch full of Rum Flake this morning, now it's Copenhagen and coffee in the office.

    It would be equally sad, Hofnar, if I did not stick to a taste that I have come to like more than 40 years ago (admittedly, CLAN has changed since) and - at the same time and over the years - if I had not ventured into other tobacco worlds. And I guess there is so much more to be found still ...

    Well, I smoked a bowl of Clan (the aromatic version) yesterday evening and it was a very nice smoke. Normally i prefer a more true or clean tobacco taste (no aromatic enhancements) but the vanilla flavour is rether pleasant, once in a while. I also like the pouches it comes in...

    Everything changes over time. Tobaccos, wine, women and, not least, one self. Some things get better, other worse. Perpetual change is the only constant.

    Good to see you back, Atom! Because we weren't viewing Bob Ross' face on a regular basis, our summer here wasn't as happy as it could have been :byg:

    That said, I'm pretty damned happy with this bowl of St. Bernard Flake in a DH. Thanks to Simmo, of course :toast:
