    The wind just got here. It's already dropping off. If it rains today like it's supposed to, it should cool off nicely this weekend. About damn time.

    To add to my experience in virtual touring the UK thru Google Maps, to which city are you referring to? Gateshead?

    Good Morning All, welcome back BB glad you are doing better. I would take some 30 degree weather today, it's just 12F, -11C here this morning. Too cold for my old bones! Warming them up with Old Red in the mm cob and some nice PG tips tea. Yes, I got my two orders from P&C late yesterday. I guess a week isn't bad due to this kind of weather. I don't feel bad about being grumpy over it, tho!

    Having some CH in a cob. Waiting on the numbness to leave after an early morning dentist visit. LoL, my wife keeps laughing at my attempts to talk.

    Knowing where you're from, I imagine it's pretty funny. Probably about like me with a numb tongue. My accent is bad enough without slurring :confused:

    Afternoon all! Impromptu day off work to look after my daughter who's not feeling too good. Put her down to sleep and managed a couple of pipes in the man cave. Firstly GH Balkan Flake in a Barber B-line poker, followed by Connoisseur's Choice in a Falcon.

    Up early to help my neighbor with a couple of things, and am back home. Just finishing PS Cube Cut in a small 1970s smooth three quarter bend XXX Danish Sovereign 324 sitter. I need a hot cup of tea and a new smoke.

    Smoking more John Bull, this time in a pipe simply labeled "The Biltmore". No idea what/who made it. It was my Grand pop's. So it probably dates to around 1949.

    Suzy and Molly are sound asleep as they have been all morning. They're smarter than we are! I'm pretty much staying inside the rest of the day, which is good because Stormy's still raining and blowing cold air around the sky. My tea's just about ready, and so his bowl of Angler's Dream in a straight black sandblast undated Savinelli Hercules 115EX pot. Work will commence after I eat lunch.

    Not so I notice. That being said, after lunch I'm going to try to smoke. Even if it is just to give myself something to look forward to.

    Close, it's just left a bit, turn right at the lobster pot roundabout, and straight on past Crayfish Drive and you're there.

    Back from the docs and my blood test results were excellent, apparently as good as someone without diabetes. Still on the meds for the next six months to be on the safe side. To celebrate, I've stashed a good hearty wodge of GH American Sweet Peach in the Molina Churchwarden and am beginning to kick back.

    Well it's snowing and cold, but I'm heading out to the balcony with a cup of coffee, some work and a pipe of Old Joe Krantz in the Savinelli Milano 803KS.

    Smoking some Sherlock Holmes in a Savinelli Tundra 144 KS.
    I went to a Ramstein concert a little while ago. It was amazing!
    They seem to subscribe to my way of thinking: You can never have too many flamethrowers.
