    :laff: They are utterly and without compromise priceless! I think I will write a stiff letter even though, I can confirm, order has been restored to the Land of Lerring, I might have to neglect that it came by courier though.

    Don't do it. Seriously, the stuff tastes like something out of the cat's litter box, and just as hard to light. I think you would be better off buying some Carter Hall.
    This public service announcement brought to you by the smokers of ODF.

    Agreed, ODF is just vile and you should definitely not go and do something rash, like dwindling my supply of it.

    Melorning, everyone. Happy Saturday! We've got 8" of snow, with more falling. It's supposed to stop within the next couple of hours though. I'm smoking MB Navy Flake in my DGE Brier Nose-warmer. Of course I'm drinking black coffee. I'm listening to the radio as I sit right next to the stove. Very cozy here. Puff on! I'm reading the mail.

    I think I'm going to keep repeating my Dunbar/Dorchester trials today. I'm starting off with Dorchester in my Sav Virginia 603. All the reviews I've read say that Dorchester is sweeter, but I'm tasting it the other way around...at least in my first go at the comparison.

    Breaking in the MM Country Gent with some Nightcap. Didn't like this first time round and I don't know what the heck I was thinking.

    35 and raining in Louisville this morning. Miserable. No reason to even get dressed, just put on some wooly sweats from the IU on-line store. Good morning for a big breakfast so I polished off some sausage w/ extra sage topped w/ warm maple syrup, eggs topped w/ melted cheddar, salsa and cottage cheese on the side. Now time for hot coffee laced w/ French vanilla creamer and Peterson 2013 Special Reserve in a 1984 Pete XL90S.

    Cattle Dog had Beneful beef stew, eggs, cottage cheese and is now curled up on his comforter beside my desk snoozing. Think I'll move over to the easy chair after my smoke and join him in preparation for the IU-ND game this afternoon. ESPN highjacked the game away from us free TV or die types so I'll be listening to the call on my trusty CC Crane Radio 2 with plenty of Smarty's Special Blend, GE/5100/Perique, floating in the air from my arsenal of Pete 312s, ice tea w/ lemon on the side throughout.

    Enjoy the Saturday PSFers

    Sounds like a good day. What time will you be expecting me? I'll need at least 2.5 hours to get there

    Right after you've stopped at the liquor store and picked up a bottle of 4 Roses Single Barrel 100 proof and Papa Murphy's for a family sized thin crust pizza with garlic sauce and loaded with tomatoes, mushrooms, jalapeƱos and artichoke hearts for the evening. Should only take you an extra half hour. ;)

    Starting a second round of Nightcap in the Country Gent while watching the footie scores come in. The Toon are 1-0 so far, but it's only against Southampton (fingers crossed I'm not cursing us)>

    Already been to the gym, had breakfast, now it's off to find something to break in this new Sav 320KS. btw....what is the etiquette for sampling tobacco in a b&m you've never been in before? Us newbies have to ask these kind of questions.

    As an aside ... a little disappointed in P&C. After receiving my first order the price stated on the web was NOT what I was charged. Got an invoice for slightly higher.

    Something in a cob for the trip to the shop!
