    Good evening gents,
    Dinner's done - this salad is gone. And it was delicious, a fennel-salmon-cherry tomato-salad - followed by a big bowl of GL Pease' Laurel Heights in the Peterson Deerstalker, Apfelwein on the side. :thu2:

    Good Afternoon All,
    It'll be Reiner's Long Golden Flake from '05 in a Dunhill Group 6 Ring Grain Billiard for my ride home. I'm gonna bring some ice water for the ride.

    Happy Smoking,
    Paul

    So the Yankees beat the Dodgers, and the O's put a real hurt on the Tigers. I'm about to put a hurtin' on this bowl of Best Brown #2 in a 2013 bent MM Missouri Pride Legend. Simply Lemonade for a drink. Now, back to work.

    This thing does not pass a pipe cleaner all the way through, it gets stuck in the foot. Any tips?

    Try to twist the cleaner at the point where it's stuck.

    For those of you who have been introduced to Strang by Dr. Strang Love I'd like for you to see how the Salami stacks up against Strang. Strang is on the right, the Salami aka Peter Heinrich's Curly Block is on the left and much harder to slice. Strang is still drying and will give it a go in the Radice Chubby Morta AEROBilliard when ready.

    ...I guess that about sums it up....good work if you can find it. My job didn't always look like this. Before I'd made my bones, there was a lot more to it. The biggest part of this produce gig is buying low and selling high, as you can imagine. The second biggest part (which is my favorite) is maintaining relationships. Relationships with vendors, for obvious reasons. Just as importantly though, relationships with other buyers. I've only got two eyes and two ears. What I don't see/hear about, I can usually count on a friend to fill me in. Produce people are pretty old school for the most part. No emailing or phone calling your buddies. If your not on the Row, coffee in hand, talking to the right guy, you don't get the information. Which may be the difference between being competitive or not. So...we're back to buying low and selling high again. Anyway, that's my job, and I love it!

    Currently, I'm smoking PS LTF in my MM CG w/forever stem. More coffee. Good afternoon everyone!
