    What a day what a day...​
    A little earlier today I went to the customs office to pick up my second chance PSF POY 2013. I had to pay some extra fees, it's not worth mentioning....(oops - too late) but it's more than compensated by a nice blast! I think I got really lucky with this second chance POY! Thanks Bill, thanks Doug, thanks PSF!​

    more pics will follow in the Second Chance POY thread.:thu2:

    But when I got home the BIG BANG OF HATE happened. A package - all the way from Bermuda :confused: - had finally reached it's destination.​

    So, that's were he's hiding...the HATER of HATERS, The Grand High Malevolence (©dBear) the enabling machine, Godfather of HATE​
    FishnBanjo
    Sitting on an island of Bermuda - spreading his tremendous amount of HATE all over the world!
    I don't know what I've done to be hated that much and I don't know at all what to say.
    But I'm not amused - that's for sure.
    Not sure if I can, but I ill try to keep up - now that I know his North Atlantic hiding-place.
    He has enraged me wonderfully:csmile: by sending me a
    CALABASH?!?!?!?!:confused: [​IMG]
    It's a wonderful pipe, a 30 years old Gourd Calabash and I will restore it the best I can and will cherish it forever.
    Thank you Thank you Thank you. Then there was a sausage in the box - must be Salami. A huge piece of it. And also a huge sample, well it's not really a sample - it's the content of an entire tin of Anni Kake!
    I'm in heaven hell - thanks to Sante!
    I'm starting to break in my PSF POY 2013 with some Dan's Ascanian#2 because this is my breaking in tobacco, while starting to restore the pipe of hate.

    LOL, laundry day for Mr. Spill? Had a really nice first go at G&H Sweet Coconut Twist in the Altinok Meerschaum Classic Series Ball (which is beginning to color) with a PRM of Finca Las Florestales Maximino Guitierrez Colombian Coffee, lovely combo!

    Got a tasty, peaty bowl of Classic Burley Kake going in my Rekamepip maple tank. Drinking the first batch of coffee.

    My admiration goes out to F&B, the Grand High Malevolence, for the great job he did on PipeSimmo! :csmile::csmile::csmile::appl:

    Just got a fresh 5lb sack of Brazilian Cerrado Coffee Beans which I had roasted to medium full so I did a test batch in my Rancillio Rocky Grinder for espresso and ran a double. It was tasty but not up to double standards but will make a dandy single, so I switched the grinder to grind for my Keurig pods and went out with a cup with the MM Mizzou, with the plum Forever Stem, filled with H&C/965 Mix and it's a match, you get the full flavor of the tobacco, a swig of coffee leaves the palate clean and just a hint of the coffee taste lingers, take a puff and full flavor of the tobacco, it doesn't get any better than that. I love the way the tobacco's have melded after 48 hours. :bow:

    Now that I'm more or less awake, I'm kicking it up a notch by moving from Classic Burley Kake to Pirate Kake (thanks, YappyG!) in the Tom Howard pot dog. Got the last half of the coffee on the side.

    Started the morning with a Rekamepip Black Stone Cob and
    Gawith and Hoggarth’s Black Cherry and Cherry and Vanilla mix,
    then watered the “Finished” Plantation (No more potting on, only watering)
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Post #232 :- http://pipesmokersforum.com/community/threads/a-uk-2013-growing-log.25334/page-12

    Rekamepip generously added a Cherry ? “Cob” bowl in with a Stone pipe and I added a Bamboo stem from the front garden, this morning I had the idea of adding another smaller Bamboo stem to make it easier to clench
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    the inner stem is held in place by the “old blowpipe hunters trick”
    [​IMG]
    and works a treat making a fine light-weight clenching “yard pipe” cheers Rekamepip.
    decided to have a play and brew a drip coffee out in the yard, using a Borde “bomb” petrol stove
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    I run it on lighter fuel (no soot, unlike car petrol)
    [​IMG]
    and start it by heating the coils with a cooks blow torch, then regulate the flame with the star wheel burner
    [​IMG]
    kettle on the windshield/pot holder
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    Lavazza in the drip maker, top screen fits via a cut out,on two lugs and compresses the coffee slightly but if you just wet it then wait 30 seconds before filling with the rest of the water the coffee swells and acts as it’s own filter, as the brew drips through
    [​IMG]
    Time for another Rekamepip Cherry “Cob” as it drips through
    [​IMG]
    the lid then acts as a drip saucer. With a spoon of Barbados cane sugar, it’s a hard life working on the Plantation !
