    Think i have read this before either way that article brought a smile
    Its good that the peraon writing about it actually smokes a pipe so knows what he is talking about when it comes to explaining the joys rather than a none smoker who tries to get it and fails miserably

    I feel like we're on the cusp of respectability. Or I hope so.

    Ive found though when people find out i smoke cigarettes there not bothered or they frown as we all know the rep cigarettes habut mention a pipe and the reactions are so different
    Surprise wonder curiosity and on more than one occasion people have smiled and remembered their dad granddad uncle etc who smoked a pipe and how they miss that unmistakeable smell of the tobacco and seeing the look of contentment on said relatives face
    I think pipe smoking is seen as a more respectable and those that say its in decline i find it hard to believe and i think it is coming back with a more youthful crowd

    Respectability is overrated. What do you care what other people think?

    on-topic; nice article, thanks for the link.

    Interesting article. I think the PM of the Czech Republic is smoking a Ferndown Silver Spigot!
