    Well, I'll be DGTing this when
    it doesn't feel like its a million degrees
    below zero out. Good thing I'm
    not a cig smoker, otherwise, I'd
    be convulsing right now. High
    time I move to warmer climes.

    Since supper was a big ol' pot-o-beans, some sweet smelling aromatics sound like a good idea. Gatlin-Burlier Mountain Maple in the speckled egg to start.

    Don't know if there is a casing on Prairie Wind, but have never found it bitey or objectionable in any way. I can smoke bowl after bowl of Prairie Wind and always enjoy it, lots going on. I smoke it, and Painter Hills which does have some sort of casing, daily. Rich knows his craft and whatever he's doing to get the tobaccos to come out the way they do, sure works for me. No chemical aftertastes or weird ghosts from anything I've tried of his. Weybridge and Button Bay are the two others from him that I do not run out of.

    Speaking of which, Prairie Wind in a Peterson Canadian. Enough of the Remembrance Day melancholy, now watching the progress of the toughest single handed, non-stop, round the world sailing race, the Vendee Globe. http://tracking2012.vendeeglobe.org/en/

    Black Frigate in a MM Legend. I wasn't too sure about it when I got it, but I'm really starting to love this blend.

    On behalf of DWaugh, I'll point out that absolute zero is -459.6F. -1000000F is theoretically impossible.

    Oh, OK. I had never heard of Floral Park, but I figure everyone and their brother knows Flatbush is in Brooklyn. The context of the quote is confusing, so it made it sound like Floral Park was in Flatbush or something. I don't know, I don't think I care for this guy's writing very much.

    I agree with you that it does not bite, not at all in fact. Burns great, all that good stuff, I just think it has some kind of casing to it. It does not taste like any other VaPer I've smoked, I know that. His tobacco is interesting stuff, I'm enjoying trying his various blends. I'm finding some strand of similarity from blend to blend, whereby I could probably recognize a blend as being from Rich upon tasting it. Of course now that I've said that, I'm starting to doubt myself, but there is definitely something unique about his blends. I have a sample of Weybridge sitting on my desk, I need to give that a try.

    Stonehaven in a Peterson for now. Still quite warm outside. You can tell a rain storm is brewing. There's a stillness to the air that, accompanied by this warmth, can only mean one thing. And that's fine with me. Tomorrow is a holiday, and I've got the day off. I think I'll sit and smoke and watch it rain.

    Yes, but hypothetically, it feels like it.

    Seems your camera is in need of upgrading.
    You may want to check the age of that film
    you're using as well.

    Send him a note or give him a call. He's been straightforward and pleasant to deal with, in my experience. As to the contents of any toppings, that would be as proprietary as the number of virgins deflowered under a waning moon prior to the creation of each batch of Painter Hills.

    That is some very good stuff, at least in my book. I've had great success with Weybridge.

    After VaPers and Lat blends yesterday, I'm going Burley tonight. It's Uhle's Perfection Plug Burley in the Mastro de Paja Billiard.
