    Cracking on with another bowl of Royal Yacht as I watch the world continue to drag itself into the ninth circle of hell on Channel 4 News.

    I got this tin when I got the Stonehaven, and had planned to age it, but when I pulled it out of the box, the top popped off. Luckily, the tobacco inside was still very moist, but Mars Cigars sure didn't do a good packing job. Anyway, I'm half way through smoking Germain's Brown Flake in a smooth 2002 medium bend eight sided panel top straight grain Rinaldo Collection Silver Line F Egea 05 Titania bulldog. The tobacco tastes so good that it seems silly to complain about the broken vacuum seal because I'm getting a real smoking treat right now. Drinking Mountain Dew, and about to post the last of my Sutliff Private Stock reviews.

    Good afternoon guys.
    Puffing some Carter Hall in my Tall China Cob :puffy:
    I can't thank my parents enough for allowing me smoke in their house. Although today is rather mild here in Colorado: 56(!) degrees and sunny.

    Shameless plug...but I created an account on TR under the same name. My first review was Sir Walter Raleigh Aromatic. Gave it 4 stars :th1:

    Packing some Half and Half for my next smoke on this beautiful day :puffy:

    Wow dr. Beef heart has a nice ass. He must work out. :eek:

    Anyway, I'm smoking mcclellands bulk 925 or their 965 knockoff that I bought before dunhill reintroduced 965 in bulk. I'm doing so in my Brigham mountaineer 316. This isn't a bad tobacco, but it is not as good as 965. I just need to use this up as jar space is becoming a problem in my cellar.

    Melorning, Good Folk! Starting my day with Classic Burley Kake in a Bjarne squashed billiard. Chock Full O' Nuts in the cup and this ridiculous cold temperature outside are both giving me the Taste Of New York.

    Appalled and saddened about the fact that tobaccocellar.com is offline for two days now, I'm smoking some Chief Catoonah's Princess Street to soothe my nerves. Great thanks to Paul, who sent me this incredibly tasty blend. :toast: Smoking it in the Sevket Gezer Meerschaum.

    My recent thoughts on boosting 3 friars a litte - had me thinking this afternoon- I like the idea of dark fired Kentucky - but not having any to hand, I mixed some GH dark twist! - (n0t much needed) - Cut it fine - from my old blender, made a very tasty smoke for my afternoon toddle :) - slowed the burn rate too. OT

    Just in from 10 Russians (thanks Jake!) in the Torben Dansk, with hot chocolate on the side. Anyone else find big Lat blends go well with hot chocolate?

    Getting all set to go out east on Saturday. Trying to decide which tobaccos and pipes to bring. I'm hoping there's still a B&M downtown there.
