    Inglourious Basterds - Great flick!

    I checked out Inglourious Basterds this past week on Blu-Ray, and I gotta say, if you like Tarantino, you'll love this film. Great period film (not historically accurate by ANY means in terms of events, but very much accurate in the costume/settings) based in WWII German occupied France. Fair...

    Boots! Let's discuss em...

    I used to wear Doc's all the time as influenced by my older brother growing up. Loved the sturdy construction and once broken in, they fit like a glove. So about three weeks ago I bought myself a good ol' pair of Doc Martens for the first time in about 5 years. After a week, something seemed...

    She said "yes"... : )

    So I have been a bit absent from the board for a bit since Christmas, but for good reasons... On the eve of Dec 25th, 2009, I asked the lovely lady pictured below for her hand in marriage...I was blessed to have received a positive response from her and the rest will be history. I should be...

    SHORPY - For those that like to linger in the past...

    Just came across this site and found it to be quite enchanting! It's a site that just features user submitted photos from the past, many of which are from the early 1900's late 1800's. This is the one that got me hooked and I have been looking on the site for a while now, each photo more...

    W. White Co Clay Pipe from Glasgow found...

    My grandmother has moved to a nursing facility and my brother is moving into her house. We have been clearing out all of her things and my mother found a box containing a clay pipe. I remember this pipe from when I was about 5 or 6 years old (early 80's ). When my grandmother had her house...

    MacBaren Club Blend

    So I stopped by my local B&M last night for some pipe cleaners (I always buy one pack at a time, thus providing me with an excuse to stop by the B&M more often). I noticed they had acquired a few new tins of MacBaren blends. Among them was Norwood, Club Blend, Vanilla, and Roll Cake (no Navy...

    Dunhill Durbar

    I finally tried a tin of Dunhill Durbar last night that was generously gifted to me by fellow BoB'r Mark. All I can say is wow. Well I guess that is not all I can say. This is good stuff. A broad cut blend of Oriental Leaf, Virginia and Latakia, having almost the look of being cut by hand...

    Pipe Making Classes?

    I was just wondering if anyone was aware of any place that offers pipe making classes or courses, or even a pipe maker that is open to educating someone? I looked online but found very limited offerings. I don't mind traveling a reasonable distance if it is a worthwhile experience. My next...

    Just asking for some prayers...

    Tomorrow, my niece will be delivered at Brigham and Womens Hospital in Boston. About 5 months ago, my brother and his wife found out that they were having a baby girl. When they had the ultra sound, they noticed some irregularity with her heart. After further testing, the doctors determined that...
