    A cool morning here. I'm puffing on a GBD Virgin with a blend of Macbaren Va#1 & GH BB #2. Unblended I find the Va#1 bites & the BB#2 a little too "Lakeland". Blended they seem to settle down somewhat & make for a passable smoke. Just as well since I bought a lot of bulk of both on impulse a few years back.

    Mac Baren Club Blend in an MM Pride ...

    These MB spun discs are what I'd call a skill smoke. Until I knew how to load and puff these treasures, they were either bland or pretty ferocious biters.

    Nowadays they're one of my fastest loading and easiest smokes. The learning curve on these was steep, but I'm glad I stuck with it.

    My method of choice is to stack 4-5 discs and fold once into a clump, which I then air pocket into the Pride smoothing off the top. No resistance at all to the draw. Three 1-second hits with the torch get it going. After which I just sip steadily for around an hour, tamping occasionally. Very relaxing and fragrant, with a fantastic snork.

    I have just enjoyed my first half bowl of Capstan Gold navy Cut in a MM Ozark hardwood cob (the darker stain with the bent bit) that is destined to be one of my fishing companions. It´s a bit windy today and not ideal for outdoors smoking (especially not with a new pipe) but since it surely will blow a lot more when I´m out fishing so... I´m thinking of modifying this pipe with some makeshift wind cap.

    I removed the filter from the Country Gent and smoking a bowl of Plum Cake sans filter. So far very tasty and mellow.

    Good Morning, PSFers!

    It's so weird to say good morning when it actually is morning for people. Been starting my day so far with Classic Burley Kake in the big Rekamepip maple tank. Just about to add some heat to the cup of coffee. The sun managed to struggle up into the sky and this bowl ought to last me until I'm actually ready to move around.

    Good Morning,
    It's another beautiful morning here in NJ. I'm sarting it off with Steven Books First Pipe in the new Ferndown 3* Bark Dublin with a Cumberland style stem with black coffee on the side. This pipe is starting to sing!

    Happy Smoking,
    Paul

    Good Morning,

    It's just gorgeous today, 52F and a big starry sky when I went out at 0315 this morning. I smoked some DFU in an underused Squatch, and drank some moka from the new pot. Damned if that combination doesn't put some wind up your skirt.

    Good morning folks. Rum Flake, Egg, black swill. I swear Berg sneaks in the office before me and makes coffee.

    Decided to throw caution to the wind, not jpberg kind of wind though :confused:. Pulled out the Strang from the first HATE packet from PipeSimmo (thanks Simon) and loaded up the Flying Saucer from Werner Mummert! :drly::bbaby:
