    Prayers and good thoughts requested

    I've been wrestling with posting this as I generally don't air my personal laundry in public. And although I'm not very religious, I do think the power of prayer and positive energy does help those in need. So I'm asking for a bit of both on behalf on my mom. She's had a rough time this...

    Another good snuff vendor The selection is not as good as Mr Snuff, but the prices are a bit better overall. Shipping costs are about 22% less too. I priced my order through both sites: Mr Snuff: $76.73 + 34.48 shipping = $111.21 $69.14 + 26.81 shipping/handling = $95.95 Ordered from...

    Video on the Poschl company

    It's a basic marketing video, but still has some interesting stuff.     Their production floor is immaculately clean. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" loading="lazy" allowfullscreen ></iframe>

    Mr Snuff website

    Please be aware that the Mr Snuff website has undergone a major revision today and will likely be a bit wonky for a few days until they work out the kinks.   I've reported some formatting and non-working link issues. One major positive is that they are adding a reward points system.   Not sure...

    So what is it about snuff?

    I've never smoked cigarettes. I've enjoyed cigars and pipes for 15+ years, but not more than one a day (and usually less often). My tolerance for nicotine is somewhat low. However, since trying snuff a couple months ago, I'm now enjoying this 3-4 times per day.   My smoking frequency has...

    "Similar Topics" section at the bottom of threads

    Tebow Round #4

    Do you think he makes the Eagles team? If nothing else he's got a passion for the game that many seem to lack. (Some only want glory and/or a big paycheck.) Perhaps Kelly can be more creative in using his talents.

    Kryptonite blend

    I was never really into the "shipwrecked on an island" or "if you could only smoke one blend" type of questions.   Having easy access to and preferring to consume a wide variety has spoiled me too much to try and narrow anything down to a single favorite.    Some people can ... I cannot. As an...

    Snuff vs. pipe smoking

    After rediscovering (nasal) snuff this year and finally learning to enjoy it, I've found that my frequency of pipe smoking has gone way down. I was never a heavy smoker anyway - averaging perhaps 5 bowls per week. But for the past month I've only smoked a few bowls. You?

    So based on the number of daily What are you smoking? posts

    Does anyone care to venture a guess on how many pounds of tobacco that JimInks turns to dottle every year?

    Definitely not for clinching

    Massive Cavicchi Gigantic GBD Unless you have jaws of steel ... Does anyone smoke these behemoths? Or do they just sit on the mantle as a nice display of carved + polished briar?

    Castello band question

    Someone offered a Sea Rock 35 in trade for one of my pipes, but I noticed it had a thin metal band on the shank. I was of the opinion that this was probably a repair, but the current owner was not sure. After seeing a picture of Greg Pease's Shape 355, I'm wondering if this is a factory...

    Increasing pipe size

    Seems to me that the size of pipes has increased significantly over the past 80 years. I've seen and purchased quite a few older pipes (from the 1920's - 1960's) and the vast majority were much smaller. I'd say an average size was around a Group 2 or 3. There were bigger ones around, but...

    Opinions? This brand seems to have almost zero press in the past 5 years or so ... even less here on BoB.
