    still OTC over here don't know how they process it at the plantation ? but it comes as a small tight rolled ball which swells and unwraps to a large piece, or a full leaf, when brewed -

    Jealous of you folks and your snow. It's 55F and sunny here. Had a quarter bowl of FVF in the new Squatch earlier, trying to get it broken in as I search for money to buy another one.

    I'm puffing on a bone-dry sample of GH #25 Mixture in a Radice Rind. It's doing nothing to change my initial thoughts when I tried it months ago. Gawith Hoggarth's strengths do not include Latakia blends.

    Do any of you fellows have a GH Lat blend recommendation? I've tried several, but I've yet to be impressed.

    Good Afternoon,

    Nasty day here, 4 or 5F all day, nasty wind, and lots of snow coming down sideways. In other words, a winter day in the North Country.

    Having a Scotch and some beer, and smoking this TB Radice, which is filled with GH Dark Flake.

    Hi fellas, hope you're doing great!
    A really successful day for me today, some of you already know that I'm a voice actor, and today I did two voiceovers for Knorr TV commercials. And maybe I will be booked for all their next spots, as a regular voice. As a reward for myself, I'll definitely buy another pipe, but which one? A second Moretti? My first Meerschaum (Altinok)? Finally a Tinsky? Balkovec? While I'm trying to make a decision, I'm smoking a bowl of Ascanian#2 (my last one - have to order a new tin/bulk) in Polinski.

    I'm halfway through my first ever bowl of GH Rich Dark Honeydew in a Sav Auto. It's too early to make a definitive call, but I think this will turn into a half kilo purchase.

    Afternoon, rapscallions.

    Evening all. Dropped really cold here in the shire - expecting 8 inches of snow over the weekend - we will see.

    My Grandmother regularly called me a rapscallion. Thanks for the memory.

    I lit some Murray's Era Dunhill Std Mix Medium in a Cesare Prima Billiard with my morning coffee... Liked it so much that I am having myself another bowl. Sad to see this tin go, but there's more waiting (patiently) in my cellar. I hope everyone is having a great day!

    Germain's Special Latakia Flake in a Guildhall.
    Berg's entry into the photo posting club has really had to make me strive harder, (did you notice the micrometers in the background?). I can't allow a photo gap.

    First person to recognize what the dogs paws are on gets a free sample of Special Latakia Flake (or something different if they have had that).

    Good evening folks. Found a tin of Telegraph Hill at the B&M that was date stamped to '04, so I bought that sucker and am now smoking a half bowl or so of it in the Squatch. This is a nice blend that FlatbushPaul showed me introduced me to awhile back, and I had all but forgotten about it. Glad I found that tin. It's even better with nine years of age under its belt.

    It's about 50F here and quiet, supposed to get some rain this evening. I sure do wish it was snowing. Leave a shovel by the door for me, my Northern friends. I'll be joining you in a couple of years, or I'll eat my hat.
