    A big bowl of SL in the Savinelli Bulldog EX.

    It is an EX, not the KS I was reffering to it as in previous posts....and it is a Latakia only pipe.

    Starting the day with some GLP Stratford in the Kapet 68. I really, really like this blend :)

    Colombian coffee on the side, cream and sugar. Big change of pace for me there!

    Irish Flake is such an interesting tobacco. I'm buying 2 or 3 tins at at time of it. By itself it's nice but using it to cradle other tobaccos so that it just takes on hints of the other flavours and then builds in to it's own has got me hooked.

    Irish Flake cradling Irish Oak in a large IMP meerschaum this morning. Never would know that it was snowing this time yesterday. Beautiful severe blue sky and +3C this morning.

    Irish Flake is great stuff! I personally think it's a great substitute for Condor, albeit without that special, light flavoring. The base tobaccos taste extremely similar to me, and I find the strength about the same. It's a winner for sure!

    Yep I find the two quite similar as well, Irish Flake is slightly stronger and has less of a topping, which is why I smoke it in my Lakeland pipe :ohyh:

    NICE! Love that Sav! I'm a big fan of Canadians, and that light rustication just looks stellar on that one. A little jealousy here :D

    Passed all my finals, and smoking some PA in my Sav Duca Carlo. I have nothing planned for today, so I foresee my tobacco stocks taking a rather large hit in the coming hours.

    What are you talking about? I get the same great shots from my Colorsnap 35. Don't tell me there's something new out there I haven't heard of?

    You must live under a rock! They now have cameras that take a special film, but here's the cool part, after you take a picture the camera spits out a print that develops before your eyes! Can't remember who makes them... Maybe poloroid? If your library has some photography magazines you could find the name. It's a brave new world!
