    Brief update

    I had another MRI today. My tumor has grown from .9cm to 4cm since it was discovered Aug 14th. There is some positive news, there is no midline shift, and very subtle mass effect. I have an appointment with the Neurosurgeon on Monday, and hope for surgery in the near future! So basically it...

    Update and stuff

    Hey gang, I should be getting some boxes out in the mail tomorrow, for some of the people I have contacted about tobacco. Having some things to do seems to help a bit, and I apologize for the delay. I have a couple of cardiology appointments in the morning, and plan on dropping by neurology and...

    Plans for my tobacco

    Hey Gang! Seeing as I am going to be a bit preoccupied in the near future, health concerns, divorce, and selling my house, I have decided I am going to be bubble wrapping my jars, put them in flat rate boxes and send them to people. So, if I PM you and ask for your address, please just give it...

    Fun, fun fun!

    As I alluded in the Trading Post forum, I am no longer going to be consuming tobacco, in any forms. I had a bit of a scare today, I thought I was having a stroke, while at work. It was a Transient Ischemic Attack (AKA mini stroke) and during the work up, the MRI showed a lesion in the left side...

    Met another pipe smoker up here!

    It is always neat to meet another pipe brother. I had a patient come into the department looking for some info, and I could small the awesome aroma of tobacco on him, so I asked what he smoked. He is an OTC cherry blend smoker, so when He arrives for his appointment tomorrow I am going to...

    An amazing honor!

    One of my Santa gigs this year, was the Staff party for the school where SWMBO works. I passed out presents and did the picture ting. The picture I took with the Principal's infant daughter was such, that she used it for her family's annual Christmas card! How neat is that? With no further...

    R.I.P. Fatman (10-26-1962) to (10-11-2016)

    He was a jolly sort, full of life and giving. Little did he know that his untimely demise was sooner then he thought. Upon arriving home from a long day of flipping protons, he discovered a box on the doorstep. Being the unsuspecting sort, he took to inspecting it, there was no return address...

    Crazy good luck!

    So, like a lot of others I like to peruse thrift stores. I haven't had the good fortune to find any nice pipes. Back in early July I found a real gem in the rough. It is a 70s vintage Zodiac Super Sea Wolf manual chronograph. I paid a grand sum of $7.99 and just got it back from the shop. The...

    An experiment, and would like to solicit advice.

    Hey gang. I have 2 bags of Esoterica's Brighton. I really like Dorchester and Dunbar. seeing as they are scarce these days, I purchased 8oz of blending perique and am going to combine them. I do like a fairly perique heavy va/per, like GQ Tobacco's Askwith kake. My plans would have basically a...

    The Last Frontier

    One of the upsides of living in Anchorage is that you're only a short drive away from Alaska. Took the dog for a short jaunt, about a 5 min drive from the house and I took a couple of pictures of trail signs, for the enjoyment of my non Alaskan friends. So, when the salmon are on their...
