    Dreary Monday. But filled the Mod Cob with CH and the large coffee cup with Maxwell House and it seems to be getting brighter already! (guess it help turning the light on)

    Improved technique of the coffee filter method - cool. CFM 2.0 , I like it.
    Very interesting explanation for the full enjoyment of Dark Twist, maybe I should try again. As I already mentioned, each and every MB tobacco I've tried so far gives me tongue bite, however Dark Twist has been my very first tobacco and it may well be that I've just been puffing too hard. I've learnt a lot since then thanks to PSF and all of you and I guess I should give it another try.

    But for now it's Motzek's Curly Mixture in a MM CG - and coffee.

    Starting the new work week with a pot of Russian Morning tea and two pipes. First one loaded with Old Dublin. Second with Sugar Barrel. Was going for Sail areo, but wife told me yesterday she didn't like the smell. So guess that will become my walk to the train station afternoon smoke.

    This morning it's Altadis Mint in my Naked Longchamp with a good cup of coffee in my favorite mug. It's Monday morning but I'm ready for it and looking forward to a great week.

    Essence of Vermont in a MM Legend. Sun was up by 6 when I went out for morning walk. Guess it's that time of the year to shave the winter beard off.
    Painter Hills in a Peterson 80s. Lots of black coffee.
    GOOD MORNING PSF.

    That's a near universal it seems. Rumor has it that the next edition of Webster's is simplifying the definition of bite by just using a picture of Mac Baren Virginia No. 1 :whis:

    Seriously though, Sasquatch brings up a good point in one of the threads on MB Mixture: if you can manage to tame the Mac Baren bite, your enjoyment of every other tobacco will increase tenfold.

    The key for me was watching some of the Danish and German You Tube videos where smokers were praising the MB tobaccos. The thing I noticed most was that they were puffing a hell of lot slower and shallower than we do over here. So I just imitated them. And damn if it didn't work! Mixture is a fantastic smoke once you get the hang of it.

    Just now finishing the remains of DT in a Cavicchi ...

    I thank the powers that be for not ever have seen a single "Crotch Cricket" on crutches or otherwise! You posting that made me laugh way to early. Thanks

    Today I'm finishing a sample of a new VA blend from a local-ish B&M with a BIG bowl in my Peterson House System pipe.
