Not to go and get all weird on ya' but we've reached a bit of a milestone here. We've officially passed the 1,000 registered members mark! I can't thank you guys enough for making this place what it is and contributing so much of your time and knowledge to our little community. We have an interesting and highly diverse group. There's really something here for everyone weather you smoke Cobs or Nordhs, Balkan Sobranie or Half and Half (or Walnut in Mark's case) lol

In a word, You good folks make it what it is! Thank You!

I remember when this little experiment started way back in '07, I was so thankful that we had a place to come to and thankful for Jason who got things up and running. Dock and all the mods do a great job of keeping things running and to the rest of us, 1000 strong that make this a wonderful place to call home....

This is a great on-line community to be a part of; during my time here I have learned a lot, laughed a lot, and smoked a lot.


1,000 members is a milestone to be proud of -- Bravo!!!!

I really do appreciate this community! I had dropped out of the pipe community for a long period of time going all the way back to the JRBB, Stoker's Haven and the very early days of Knox. Some of the fine brothers contacted me and encouraged me to become more active because a new board was starting up that they thought I would be interested in. They were right and I am grateful for the BoB!!! I have had the privilge of developing some mighty fine friendships in the pipe communtiy over the years and the BoB has enhanced that experience more than any other online community that I have been involved with. I know many of us have our differences but when the rubber meets the road I know that I have many, many brothers here that can be counted on and that I myself would lay down my life for!

Here's look'n at you Brothers of the Briar!!!

Mark

P.S. Loading up a bowl of Walnut in a Brissett in honor of the BoB!

I am brand new here, but I'm very happy with this site. This is one of my defaults now, whenever I go online. I love reading the comments, and I've learned a lot.
My only complaint: really... my life is forever altered. Now I feel like I am a part of a much bigger pipe world, and I want to participate. That means building a collection. That means... buying pipes and tobacco.
Well, there could be worse things...I could be collecting campaign buttons or something like that...
Seriously, thanks for the warm welcome and completely reviving my love of pipes, pipe smoking, and pipe and tobacco collecting.

Yee haw!!!! It's wonderful to have so many brothers and sisters. This was my first attempt at participating in an online community and I sure feel lucky in the one I picked.
Not gonna be posting much for a while. I have the Security Tool virus on my computer and have to use the one at work.
Hooray for BoB.

great to be a member, I've learned a lot, spent a lot, smoked a lot, laughed a lot, thought a lot, experienced the generosity of many brothers, debated a bit, hopefully made a few friends, gained perspective from a diverse group, sampled a huge range of tobaccos, shared the ups and downs of everyday life.
All from a community of people tied together by the enjoyment of the pipe,,,although I suspect it's much more than that,,,,

Glad to be a member here also! Mark (JP) turned me on to Walnut at a TAPs show a couple of years ago. I keep a tub on hand at all times, not my favorite, but a good smoke

Piet, I'm back'n you up 100%! There ain't noth'n at all wrong with Walnut! That's why it has been around since 1856. There's a whole lot of pipe smokers that got something wrong with themselves if'n they don't like Walnut!!! Laughing Laughing Laughing
