    Hello

    And howdy! I'm also a BoB newbie, probably too new to welcome you, but welcome just the same. I saw that you had an opportunity to smoke some of Hans Wiedemann's blends. I haven't tried the ones you mentioned but if they're as good, in their own way, as Fayyum Kake and Dockworker, then I hope to...

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    That's a good quote. I saw one about pipe smoking awhile back which sums it up pretty well, but I don't know who said it: "Keeps my hands busy and my mouth shut." In the manner of good room note, y'know? Have a happy and healthy New Year!

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    Thanks for the warm welcome and encouragement, Timbo It does seem like, with the peace pipe and tobacco, our native American bros. knew what it was all about. Far as tongue in cheek goes, I'm all for it! Like Will Rogers said, "We are all here for a spell. Get all the good laughs you can!" The...

    Thanks for the welcome, TwelveAMnTX! Are you from the Republic of? Your avatar looks a lot like an old (departed) friend of mine, whom I called, Quatz, the Hopi word for "friend". He was half malamute; half Canadian Silver-tipped wolf, but the malamute was not evident. At 9 mos. he stood 3...

    Puros_Bran! Busted. I enjoy writing and sometimes get carried away, but thanks for the extra effort. :P Amen to that treasure. HU Tobaccos? They're excellent excellent tobaccos blended by a master blender in Germany, Hans Wiedemann. I imported them myself but, unfortunately, they do not ship to...

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    Hello all, I just responded to the warm welcomes from many BoB forum members. Again, THANKS! But I reckon I should have stopped to read the instructions because I have a feeling that, even though I used the "quote" feature I did not post my replies so they appear attached to the respondents'...

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    Thanks, loneredtree! I appreciate it. Your advice is well taken. When you say it looks like a nice collection, did you actually see the image I tried to post? I grew up (debatable, that) in San Diego and my father's in an assisted living facility in Encinitas. I don't get back often enough, of...

    Hi Stick. Thank you for the welcome and encouragement! Pleased to make your acquaintance as well. I hope to participate as much as possible. Just now finished most of a bowl of Lancer Slices in a meerschaum gourd calabash. I'd smoked a previous load in a Karl Erik Jobey Dansk. Here's my live...

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    Thanks for the greetings, Ozark Wizard! A lot of olive wood carving goes on here, especially for souvenirs. I've yet to see a pipe, but I did read a thread awhile back about just that, olive wood as a medium. There are many olive trees hundreds of years old (would be a lot more even older if the...

    Thanks for the warm welcome, BrewDude! I tried to post a pic, but evidently it was too hi res (big). I'll try again. Soon as I get a chance I'll try again. I've noticed some excellent DIY threads onsite, already. Looking fwd!

    Greetings from Jerusalem!

    aka The Big Holy Hello All, Happy Holidays! I'm more or less recently returned to pipe smoking and tobacco enjoyment after a lapse of a decade or three. Thoroughly enjoying and learning from the knowledgeable and congenial threads on BoB. Thanks! I don't exactly lurk on forum sites, but...

    Greetings from Jerusalem

    Hi Ladies and gents, I found the BoB forum while searching for another source and browsed around a bit and learning a lot in the process. Before that, I'd just joined the PipesMagazine.com forum. I smoked a pipe for nearly fifteen years then gave it up for the next thirty! But, I'm back in the...
