Location :   
Sarasota, FL, U.S.A.

Job/hobbies :   
Musician, organic produce and speaker are my vocations. Among my hobbies are LP record collection, biking, culinary arts (former chef), home bartending, wine and beer tasting, reading, movie, theater, and of course, pipes and tobaccos.

Humor :   
"I find myself sitting idly on the line dividing past and future, as if I could kill time without injuring eternity." - Thoreau

Tobacco :   
Presently I use two blends - Peterson "Sherlock Holmes" and Peterson "Balkan Delight".

While I explore other blends and smoke much more moderately than in the past, I'll include a number of favorites: Mac Baren "Cherry Ambrosia", "Vanilla Cream", "Honey & Chocolate", "7 Seas Gold" and "Club Blend Roll Cake". A local tobacconist's Bennington's "No. 47 Fruit Delight", Newminster "#9 Creamy Vanilla" and "#23 Blackberry Brandy"; Peter Stokkebye's "Luxury Twist Flake" and "Luxury Bullseye"; Cornell & Diehl "Byzantium", Peterson "Old Dublin"; J.M. Boswell's "Sweet & Mild", "Boswell's Best", "Dan's Blend" and "Vanilla Cream"; Gawith Hogarth & Co. "Kendal Gold" round out the most memorable blends.

Pipe :   
I have ten briars. My essential active five are a Savinelli Lolita, a handmade Stanwell Colonial #39, a very rare Ole Owl Solvang, a Peterson Shannon and a Tsuge Kaga.
My resting pipes are two London made pipes - a Kaywoodie Relief Grain F 07, a bent "MCH"; a Savinelli "925", a Walker Briar Works Missouri Meerschaum Great Dane egg shape corn cob, with a churchwarden stem and an Irish "Home Rule" clay pipe.
