    Having some Old Companion in a mod cob. Got to get ready for work. We have a 3PM class on fire extinguisher use. The only thing I like about this class is when we go out side to show the instructor that we know how to pull the pin, point at the base of the flame, and pull the lever....I can lite my pipe and slowly work my way to the tail end of the line and enjoy a few minutes of smoking while nodding my head ever so often to give the illusion that I really give a damn about what they're saying.

    I get most of my news from Jay Leno or Letterman. ;)

    More VA# 1 just got back from a Torano cigar and coffee at the local B&M and brewed a pot of black tea to ice down.

    Now smoking Edward G. Robinson's Pipe Blend in a 1980s smooth slight bend Wally Frank Dublin. I'm glad nobody is hoarding this tobacco. Don't get any ideas, Ruffinogold!! :p: I know you liked the sample I sent you.

    Believe it or not I have the same amount on another pipe forum I've been on for years! We won't talk about how many I've posted in the 4 iterations of The Classic Fly Rod Forum though. :blah:

    Finished the Cuban and now have a nice little stash of cigar ash started which I'll add to a bit over time, now cleansing the palate with a lovely navel orange and a double Jamaican Blue Mountain espresso! :drly:

    Good "morning" everyone. Wow, the lack of sleep the previous night really caught up to me and I woke up at 2pm today :)
    Hate doing that, but what can you do...

    Just now firing up a MM Washington full of Carter Hall to start the "morning".
    Strong coffee to clear the cob webs as well.
    What day is it, Friday? Have a good one folks. :puffy:

    You mix them with alcohol and make a paste which is used to tend to any small areas inside a bowl which show burnout possibility. Often these will rear their ugly heads after being reamed when you have purchased an estate that has had less than perfect care, i.e. cake is from another planet. The mud sets up and shields the area to prevent further damage, this takes a little time to do as it needs thin layers to build it up flush depending on the problem area, it is also use for taking care of spider webbing inside a bowl.
