Hi, Mike

You seem to have accidentally pressed the "Caps Lock" key ... since I'm sure you aren't the sort who'd begin shouting in a loud voice as he walked into a room where a group of guys were smoking pipes (and maybe in some cases, cigars) and chatting among one another, I know you'll want to press that key a second time in order to type your messages in a normal voice.

BTW ... welcome to BoB ...

Some of the older gentleman find it easier on the eye's to see what we're typing and what they have typed.
I for one on some forums depending on there type style and size have used bold lettering and
a larger font. Personally, I don't care what size font one chooses to type in, as long as I can see it and read it.  Very Happy

And to answer your question about pubs, nowadays I haven't a clue my friend.

Many McMenamins will allow you to smoke outside if they have the seating available and those seats legally comply with Oregon law. I can't help you with a specific McMenamins in Portland. You could likely find a location via their website and ask about their outdoor smoking options. http://www.mcmenamins.com

Another thing about McMenamins, locals enjoy complaining about the poor service and food from these understaffed establishments, but many still frequent them.  rabbit

Putting my moderator hat on here, so please pay attention.

Welcome to the forum from the BoB moderator team. I think what the folks are trying to tell you is, write normally on public forums please. All caps and bullet point statements are annoying as hell. Please stop. Thank you.

Lets give Mike a warm welcome to the BOB and let him know that its what you say and not how you say it.
While I don't like someone shouting in my ear I don't mind caps if someone uses caps in a brief written message.
Especially if the writer has a good reason.

Having thought it over and having read the explanation in two topics, I have to agree with Bub in this case

others may, of course, disagree

Welcome Mike. The thought of sitting down with you for a conversation intrigues me. As one who prefers to print in caps I also have never understood the hatred people have for using them in type. It is simply easier to me. God willing you will not be chased off for being a simple gentlemen. Cheers.

Another mod commenting here...I think that when enjoying a forum that others have put together at great effort, over the years, that it is incumbent upon the guest or member to follow the preferred protocols on that site. I mean,  aside from the fact that caps stand for someone YELLING REALLY LOUD and most other members see it as being rude whether intended or not.

So please don't take this as harsh or intended in a mean way...but if you don't find yourself comfortable following the CUT THE CAPS line, maybe its because this site isn't a good match in terms of what you're looking for, etc. I mean, what...5000 or so other members don't have a problem with following standard behaviour. If it's too much for you to bear that says a lot.

Hope you can work it out.

There are a couple of good places in Portland. Rich's allows you to smoke inside, but don't expect to sit or drink. The drink thing is state law.

In Oregon City, Steve Books has his shop set up- House of Calabash. No smoking as far as I know, but worth the visit to listen to Mr. Books tell stories.

PostSubject: CAPS - No Caps   Fri Jan 31, 2014 10:12 am

Good Morning Brothers Of Briar
The responses to the caps has been interesting - however - since I learned a long time ago as a Marine
Force Recon Special Forces & Radio and TV Combat Correspondent in Nam that there ware things worth
fighting for - and some things not worth fighting for - the right thing to do is to type the way most of the
BOB members do.
It's a beautiful day - 43 - however we have 3 storms headed our way - rain - ice and snow is forecast.
I am smoking my Radice Rind Poker Pipe - Seattle Pipe Club Mississippi River - one of my favorites -
pressed Virgina - kicked up with oriental - latakia and perique. If you haven't tried it - it's very good -
smooth - no bite - nice flavor - nice room note. I don't smoke a pipe for other people in the room -
however - it nice when other like the aroma. I have great memories of my Grandfather who lived to
86 - smoking his pipe on the front porch when I was 5 or 6 - don't know what tobacco is was - it did
smell great. My mother was born and raised in Australia - her father died when she was 6 - we only
have several photos of him - in one he is smoking his pipe - so I am carrying on the pipe smoking
tradition of both my Grandfathers. It's Friday - make it a Great Weekend.
God Bless All Our American Military (except the commander & chief) and especially all that have paid
the ultimate price for our freedom!

In Pennsylvania they've set a criteria for certain bars to allow smoking. My wife works at one and business took a big jump because of it. I've not been to many of these smoking bars but all have been light cigars only and forget pipes. I'm not a drinker so bars are not my thing.

There's a number of high end cigar/pipe stores opening with décor nicer than most bars, not to mention the quality of patrons. Hated by 99.99% of the people and we still find ways to enjoy our tobacco. There's many here in Pittsburgh and one just opened 5 miles away from me that's amazing, blowing away any bar I've patronized in the last 30 years. It's also stocked with the finest of spirits in private boxes that are enjoyed free to friends gathering for the social night out. We adapt and change because we love our pipes!

cheers

Dragon Slayer - you are right - we have some Pipe & Cigars stores in OKC that have excellent
smoking rooms - we have one here called Tobacco Exchange which is excellent - we have a
group of 10 to 15 that come in pretty regular - very nice - leather chairs - we talk about
everything under the sun - very interesting and relaxing.
Smoking Skandinavik Full Aroma this morning - have had rain - sleet - snow - it's a beautiful day.

Natch...you old fart! Just hit the control and plus keys and screen size goes up making it easy to see.


If an individual has an individual problem let him seek an individual solution. Just a thought.

(Natch is one of my best friends. We go way back. Love him like a brother. 'Course, he can't STAND me!). lol

Craig, I envy you folks that have access to terrific B&Ms and lounges that allow smoking.  AFAIK, we have only a few such places (B&Ms with lounges) in the whole state and the closest is more than an hour away.  In Maine, smoking is only authorized in those B&Ms with lounges and private clubs.

I do belong to a private club that used to allow smoking in the bar, but IAW state law, employees and members have to vote every three years to allow or prohibit smoking -- last year, the non-smokers won the vote, so smoking is now only allowed on the deck and in a converted storage shed {sigh}.

Moderator - Black Horse - like your attitude - I was the one with all caps - which I have used for over
40-years - however - changed because so many didn't like it - as you go thru life - everyone must make
adjustments - life goes on! When some of the brothers get a lot older - they'll understand!

Smoking a Ben Wade - PS Lux Bulls Eye Flake - really nice - 8º this morning as I sit in my office with
the sun slowly rising.

Make it a GREAT hump day!

MR. MUNDAY -

Very pleased to have new members with a flexible attitude. No 'old dawgs' around here!

It's a balmy 20 F. here this a.m. and I just got in from re-hanginging the nectar after thawing it in the microwave for the Ruby Throated Hummingbirds.

Since it's clear as a bell the sun will boost the back deck's temp to a likely 60 F. for a few hours, so I can parka up and go out for a book and a bowl. Planning on some Hogwarts No. 7 Broken Flake or Dark Flake Scented (in honor of Natch).

I did some record online shopping this past month and binged to the tune of like $300 and when SWMBO paid bills last night I received only a slight chiding. WOW! Sweetness! Gonna be a great day!

See you are from Oregon City - my sis lives near Portland - Canby - beautiful little town.
Planning a trip this year to see her and the rest of her family. My brother-in-law has lived in
Oregon for over 20 years and never been fly fishing - or just fishing - how in the world can
someone live in such a beautiful state - with unbelievable fishing and fail to wet a hook?
I will be checking out pubs in Portland - the micro-brew capitol of the world.

11º in Edmond - wind chill is super cold - as I sit in my office smoking some Skandinavik Full
Aroma - thanks for the warm welcome to bob.

God Bless All Our American Military World Wide And Especially Those Who Have Paid The Ultimate

OKC Pipes and Pubs.
Hmmmmmmmmm just goes to showya' some folks can be adult and some folks can't.
Wish we had some of that here in the dearly beloved Peoples Republic of Massachusetts.
Just "one" place, please God?
My club away from home is "The Fire-House Smoke-Shop". Jack the owner bought it some years ago. Originally it was a Horse drawn 'Fire Barn' from the Fall River "Lizzie Borden" days. Then a bunch of Union Army vets bought it up and it became the GAR Veterans Club [righteous kitchen too] and stayed that way until 1970 when it closed its doors for the last time. Jack bought it up in 1990. The "nose" that hits you when you walk in is heavenly especially if there is some Dark English fired up. He has an absolutely beautiful walk-in Cigar humidor with just about everything under the sun there, and a really tastefully made compartmented Victorian "Wall" humidor with cubbies to let. There is Cigar club that meets regularly . Off the front, in a Victorian bay window setting opening view onto the sidewalk and street is the magazine and reading room, easy chairs, convenient ash trays, a 60" wall screen tele. with either Lou Dobbs and Business Report or MeTV with Gunsmoke, Bonanza, or I love Lucy rerun marathons going. The patron can buy himself a beautiful heavy porcelained coffee mug and join the "Mess" if he so desires. "Wyatt" [for Earp not the Painter] will be there to greet you, a friendly Black Cocker Spaniel that actually isn't neurotic. Conduct yourself as a gentleman and Jack is more than happy to have one sample a bowl of his different offerings from McClellands. I could not begin to make this up; this is a Gentleman's Club in the most positive sense of the word. If one is hungry they can walk around the corner to the Saint James Irish Pub and order up an authentic Full Irish Breakfast [with brown bread that would sharpen your teeth] or Pub Dinner, bangers, mash, cabbage, and corned beef with a pint poured properly; Jack owns the Saint James. Finish up, go back to 'FireHouse' and light up a bowl and enjoy the winter afternoon's late sun in the Reading Room wondering: "...what do the poor people do?!....Oh! we are the Poor people?!...."

regards
Anchor'sAweigh/SempeFi
ChiefBull

PS "OKC"? those were the initial of USS Oklahoma City CLG-5; those of us who loved here we just called her "...OkaySee?..."
We made lots of bad guys die and go away in VietNam, "...warn't 'shamed of it neither???yawl!...."
