    Bought a home!

    Hello all, It's been a few months since I've been anywhere resembling active on here. It's been a whirlwind of work and personal matters as of late it seems. One of those is a massive first time for me, which was buying a home. I ended up finding a fantastic corner lot house just a handful of...

    Some physical weirdness

    Went to the doctor for a general checkup for the very first time in my life about a month ago. Went through the usual barrage of questions about lifestyle, diet, exercise, yada yada yada. Get blood drawn to do the usual tests for the first time ever. Fast-forward to two weeks ago - get a call...

    Jiminy Crickets! Direct Hit!

    These dadgum kids and their tricks, I swear... Came home after an especially long work day yesterday, only to find a small package awaiting me in my mailbox. Knowing I haven't ordered anything in quite a while, I was immediately intrigued. Once inside and out of the rain, and only after my...

    My smoking room

    I work from home, so sadly my smoking room is not an escape from responsibilities, but the place where they happen. This is my little smoking room, or at least one half of it :) I keep most of my pipes and all of my tobacco in the closet, partly to protect against sun, and partly to protect...

    Alfa Romeo is back and in business! (Maybe)

    Anyone seen the new Alfa Romeo Giulia out and about in their hometowns? I've never been much of an Italian guy when it comes to cars (those Bavarian hillbillies make some damn nice ones, I'm a BMW fan through and through), but I'm really intrigued by the Giulia. I know it's too early to tell...

    A tangent topic

    I know this topic board is to discuss pen and parchment, but how does everyone feel about pencils? Mechanical pencils, specifically. I enjoy using a pencil to take certain notes (business meetings with clients, doodling, etc), and I like the feel of a good mechanical pencil. I wanted to see...

    Mellifluous Mountains of Mass Destruction!:: May Bombing Run

    The hills are alive with the sound of music! And insects... and explosions. Spring is in full swing, with summer soon approaching. The bugs are coming out of hiding, the flowers and trees are all blooming strong, and my allergies are at 110% strength! I figured, there's not a better time to...

    The Butcher's trail of clues!

    I've been asked to relocate the clues regarding the Butcher's identity to their own thread, so they're easier to keep up with and read. So, here it is! My list of folks who have so valiantly stepped up to try and discover the identity of the Butcher are as follows - 1.Blackhorse 2.Fatman...

    Hobbies?

    I noticed that the last time a hobby thread was started/replied on was 2013 (or at least a thread named 'what are your hobbies?'), and so I was curious - what are your other hobbies? Other than dabbling in fountain pens, collecting vinyl records, and building random electronics with the use of...

    Bobby's 40-year-old Mac Baren Navy Flake review

    Admittedly, it was hard doing a review on something like this - a one-of-a-kind tobacco, in exceedingly limited quantities. It'd be such a letdown for me to talk this blend up, considering the fact that it could be nearly impossible for those who read this review to actually acquire some...

    St. James? (Not the Sam Gawith one)

    I recently acquired multiple pounds of tobacco from a very nice woman; her husband had died earlier this year, and he was a tobacco hoarder. This lady wasn't sure what to do with it, but had pulled my email from the NASPC newsletter (whenever I write an article, it has my personal email listed)...

    Jumping June Bugs! :: June BoB Bombing Run

    Now that June is upon us, some places in the US will be seeing the emergence of June bugs. Digging themselves out of their burrows in May or June, the humble June beetle is a relative of the Scarab family. Eating roots and vegetation, they don't bother humans, but beware if you have a nice lawn...

    New Job... again

    Well, a day short of exactly six months, and I've found myself in a new job! I loved my database administrator position, but due to some upcoming life changes (the lady friend got accepted to school across the country, namely), I found myself looking for a different job. Luckily, I happened...

    BoB Bombers Information

    After the past few months, it has come to the attention of the co-commanders of the BoB Bombers that the populace has requested an explanation of terms, and some general guidelines that we follow as Bombers. We have decided that these would best be answered by making a post here, with a list...
