    I bet you even let them roll the barrels across your lawn, but of course grumble about it after they leave:)

    It's only common sense. That way he doesn't have to roll the lawn himself to get the frost heaves down!

    Georgia don't know frost heaves. Fire ants is a different story.

    I wouldn't be too shocked, Bojangles. I think most of us develop a taste for a particular "go-to" tobacco. Some, like you, are lucky that it's still readily available like Carter Hall. Others, like me, have to plod through life nursing our cellared stash of hard-to-get or discontinued blends, like my beloved Dark Strong Kentucky by Orlik. May the Cosmos have mercy on those pipe smokers who must have their Balkan Sobranie blends!

    As for burley blends, you might want to try one of the following blends that I've enjoyed.
    C&D Burley Flake (#1 through #4, depending on your taste for condiment tobaccos. I prefer #1 & #2, but the folks that reviewed them at www.tobaccoreviews.com seem to favor #3)
    C&D #808 Burley Straight
    Peter Heinrich's Strong Dark Flake (Closest thing I've found in approximation of my Orlik blend. Very good in its own right.)
    G.L. Pease Jack Knife Plug
    Solani Aged Burley Flake
    Mac Barens HH Old Dark Fired (if you can snag it...somewhere...before it sells out...again)
    McClelland's X-40 Burley by the Slice

    Happy smoking!

    Thanks for the recommendations. That's all I needed, more tobacco's to add to my TAD list.
