    I knew you would be back for Christmas! I was so saddened about your goodbye, I don't even knew what to say - please try to check in 3 or 4 times a month, your posts are very very helpful and you would be greatly missed. Just try to show up as often as possible. Merry Christmas, Mark!

    Hi all and Merry Christmas once again. Sneaking in some Motzek Advent before heading off to church.

    Encouraged by @sillyoldbear, I'm smoking some of last Ten Russians at el casa de SouthBound. In a Blakemar XL pot.

    28°F with hardly a whisper of a breeze.

    Morning, fellows.

    Merry Christmas to MentorBV! (And everyone else, of course, too.)

    Haven't made it to bed yet, so I'm smoking Peretti London Flake in the Falcon whilst I prepare to fry some chicken.

    Thought I'd have a bowl of burley, so I'm smoking Burley London Blend in a 1998 smooth straight Butz-Choquin Bistro 1501 pot. And reading. And thinking of sleep.

    Good morning all. I'm smoking the new Peterson 606 with GH Brown Flake Scented today. Coffee is a'brewing. I'm off today so a splash of whiskey might find its way into my coffee mug.

    Merry Christmas Eve! MC5100 Red Cake, courtesy of Marker, in the egg while driving through the snow to the office.

    The brother-in-law came for a visit and then wanted a ride home so, a bit spiteful about being forced onto the roads on Christmas Eve, I loaded my MM Mizzou with Pirate Kake for the drive. Revenge never tasted so good.

    Oh and it's 0030 here, Merry Christmas!

    Those should only be smoked by responsible adults. That's what my wife tells me.

    Good morning PSF. Smoking some Haddo's Delight in a Velani Contrast while having a cup of coffee.

    BTW, I was wondering, what is the meaning of "Melorning"? I see it on here a lot.

    Merry Christmas eve! Today is Slovak Christmas, so we're celebrating today. My poor wife has to work though, but only till noon. Meanwhile I'll be assembling and wrapping presents.

    Tilbury in the sav Virginia to start me off.

    Con. Choice is one of my favorite Peterson blends. It is part of my normal spring/summer rotation.

    I've written to replies so far and decided to scrap them due to how offensive they may be to some. Lol. See, even I can edit myself sometime. Lets just say i do nearly every morning. :)

    Monday night was devoted to baking here at our house. Normally, I steer clear of my wife during that event. But last night I actually helped. So little time for smoking. But did manage to get n London Mixture, followed by FVF in the Peterson Sherlock Holmes. She did a great job making 3 cakes. Wet to bed t 49e's half time, but then got up at 1:30 to do Christmas Eve readings (Compline and Matins) and made sure I got in a bowl of NC.

    I am using my Holiday break from work to try to reduce the number of open tins. I am up to 12 and that needs to be smoked so I can order my Winter blends. I usually steer towards non-aros during the winter, but I do want to add Maple Street for the winter.
