    @FlatbushPaul. Don't have any '98 Christmas Cheer- haven't smoked it. I have smoked 2000-2012 though and am a big fan of 2003, 2005, and 2009 (I know, too young for you). In 2019, when that 2009 has a decade on it, we'll all be even older and smellier (hopefully). If my "good teeth" can still clench a Pot everything will be fine. If I can remember your name, I'll send you some.

    2003 Christmas Cheer in a BST Rhodesian.

    I have decided to go to work late today. I need to smoke some Germain's Brown Flake in a Northern Briars bulldog and drink more coffee from this blue spode cup.

    I run them on 'Panel wipe' which is pure Naptha for wiping down before cellulose spraying it's the same as Coleman fuel But only £10 per gallon :) and unlike Petrol doesn't smoke and soot the Billy up :old:

    and start prime them with a cooks blow torch rather than a pump squirt then shut off light wait open

    Cracking on with another bowlful of Irish Flake in the Portland. The new pipe seems to be working a treat.

    C'mon Dave! ya gotta take care of the good teeth! Otherwise you'll need a rubber thingy! Well, I hope good gums can do the job when I get to that point!

    The '03 & 05 should be ok. The '09 should percolate some more. I mean, listen, Christmas Cheer is also terrific when it's fresh. I just love the way it ages.

    In big piles :beck: it's not the keeping but the finding in the chaos after Mrs Wicker tidys up and hides things :doh:
    just late last night I was looking for a brass food warmer that always lived on the stove to dry some sand on :sh: it was not in sight :mad:
    asked Mrs Wicker this morning Oh! it was dusty so I put it in the book case :bag: after 30+ years I've not worked her lodgic out :msty:

    Sitting on the front porch, usual cuppa, getting caught up reading the forum posts, whilst smoking Red Cake in my favorite Va pipe, a Kaywoodie bent apple with a push stem.

    I've been off line for several days. PC at home works, but the work one died last Friday. Finally back with everything looking good. I have complained about Ashton blends in the past but I am now noticing if I smoke either Gold Rush or Guilty Pleasure in my Peterson system St. Pat's Day 2013 (304) they both taste fine. Smoked the Guilty Pleasure last night and nothing to complain about!

    Started this Wednesday off with John Bull. Finished the pouch, and enjoyed each smoke. But not sure if I will re-order.

    I'm smoking Peretti's Burley Slices in my Holymolar-gifted rusticated MM cob in an effort to boost my enthusiasm before shoveling my driveway from the snow we got here in NH last night.
