Hey there guys,

I'm a new pipe smoker and I figured this forum was the place to come to talk and get advice on the hobby. I read some of your threads when I was deciding if I should try pipe smoking and you seemed to be a decent and friendly bunch, as well as helpful on a few issues I had, so thank you for that.

About me - I'm 31, I live in central England at the moment, soon to be moving to the south west coast. I'm a writer, artist, gamer, dog lover and now a smoker too I guess! I came out of university and went straight into helping my father with his business, after about ten years of struggling with it, it finally went under, so now I'm selling up and trying to start fresh to pursue my own ambitions. It isn't how many times you get knocked down, its the getting up that counts, right?

Anyhow, I just thought I should introduce myself and say hello to everyone.

Hmm, I'm not sure what AoM is in the context, I found this on a photography site and did some tweaks in photoshop, but you may well be correct. I thought it was funny anyhow Smile

Ah! Yes I do know that site, I didn't know this was related to it, but it makes sense. I knew it couldn't be Age of magic...

Hi from Ireland Greyson.

I'm new to BOB myself and I must say that the other brothers have been extremely welcoming and helpful.

Your dog looks fantastic - great photo. She has amazing eyes.

Good luck on the forum.

Greetings Greyson from a long time Anglophile. I've visited your green and pleasant land some dozen times or so and have 4 good mates there,
one of which is like a brother to me. While none of them are pipers we do have other things in common, like cask conditioned real ale!

This is a great board and I look forward to your contributions.


Cheers,

RR

Welcome to BoB Greyson. I hope you have found the forum and members helpful so far and have been able to answer any questions you might possible have. As for your pipe tobaccos that you have been trying, and since the companies website is still down, you can learn about them and read the reviews at http://tobaccoreviews.com/ which is where I pulled the info from that I posted. Welcome, it is a pleasure to have you here.

Thanks again guys.

Yep I have been using that site Kaiser, cheers for the pointer though - I'm one of the people who added reviews for the Hobbits weed and Nosferatu. So be careful how much weight you place on them, folks like me get a vote too Smile
