    Missed one. Gold Blend in a MM Legend. I'm enjoying the variety. Wondering how I managed to have so many different tobaccos. Have come to the conclusion that the aromatics for the most part should just be stashed away until summer when they are most enjoyed. -7C(19F)H91%

    Peterson's Christmas 2012 in a MM Legend while I did as much snow shovelling as I'm going to do today. Nutty Cut in BST Canadian and a cup of Earl Grey. -3C(26F)H74%

    Hi,

    Smoking some Dark Flake in this cute little number

    Listening to John Hiatt this afternoon. I bought "Stolen Moments" at the PX in Seoul one time when I was TDY'd there. Must've been right after Panama, I'm thinking. Who knows? I don't know how you old bastards can remember anything, I'm struggling with the late 80's.

    Just dug out some 2001 Peter Heinrich's Special Curly that Waugh sent me. I didn't even realize I had any of this left, so it's a nice surprise. Stuffed it in the Northern Briars and lit it on fire. Good stuff.

    And here I thought I had discovered a great, hidden secret with the Uhle's 44. But of course Spill knew about it; that seems like a tobacco that would be right up your alley Spill. Love that stuff.

    Almost finished with Louisiana Red in a smooth almost full bend round volcano 1981 Briar Workshop signed by Elliott Nachwalter. Can't decide what to smoke next. I waited too long to dry out a flake of Stonehaven. Hhhhmmm....

    Okay, I decided. Sweet and Savory in an early Radice Rind three quarter bend sandblast egg.

    Rule number 287: There are no hidden secrets in the tobacco world. Just tobaccos people choose not to blab about, for fear that someone will start buying it.

    Had a couple bowls of Half & Half earlier today in ye ol' MM cob... but it's freezing up here in NJ. Thought about taking a chance on getting a smoking room at the local Motel 6 - but you just can't trust these bastages and their cleaning crews. Some of their smoking rooms smell like the smoker's cube at the airports.

    On a positive note... I picked up some Peterson Irish Oak at the local B&M to try out. You can really smell what I believe is the perique. Not going to say bad or good... well, okay... smells like rotten apple sauce. LOL Looking forward to burning it, though, after reading all the positive reviews. Got a Stella Artois on the side. Ciao!

    <EDIT> Irish Oak smoked really well... very tasty. :)

    Yeah, I feel like I've heard this rule of yours before, but I would be surprised if the Uhle's 44 suddenly became impossible to get, because only smart people like Spill and me would recognize how great a blend it is, and most people are very stupid, especially compared to the two of us. I mean, he willingly throws himself into the wild surf of the Pacific Ocean for amusement on a regular basis, and I, well, I'm from Alabama. Hard to beat that.
