    How do you all take your coffee?

    I make it pretty strong and like a little Half 'n Half in it. If I'm at a restaurant, I'll take it black. I grind, but not roast. My favorite is Community Dark Roast Whole Bean.

    Your method of fishing?

    It's been a few years, but I preferred a spear gun.

    Non vaccination costs tennis star $4.4 million!

    He's not allowed in the country. He should sneak in from Mexico; nobody cares if they're vaxed.

    Non vaccination costs tennis star $4.4 million!

    DHS denies vaccine waiver for Novak Djokovic; senators implore Biden to intervene; Indian Wells and Miami Open on the line This is insane. At this point, are they really gonna keep Novak out of the country?

    Saw the thread title and wondered if you needed a plumber. ;)

    What are they putting in C&D tobacco?

    They use the same Perique that everyone else does. It all comes from the same place. (Twenty minutes from my house.)

    What are they putting in C&D tobacco?

    Most of my favorite blends are C&D and GLP. I've never experienced anything like what was described in the OP.

    Broken Pipes

    I'm relieved, upon opening this thread, that we haven't lost anyone. When I break a tenon, I send it to Mark Tinsky for repair.

    What Are You Smoking Pages.

    I smoked a few of my favorite pipes with my favorite blends. I also smoked this... I've had it for over fifteen years. Thought I'd smoke it for my seventieth birthday. ;) (Also, I smoked both of my "Birthyear" Dunhills.)

    Winter pipe smoking

    It just got cool enough here to run my window fan all day. I can smoke my ass off all winter. ;) In the summer, I can't open the window 'til after sunset or later.

    Social Security checks go up 8.7% in January!

    Gee, that's terrific...it will come somewhat close to keeping up with inflation. (But not quite)

    Do any of you still listen to a radio? (Let me know if you don't know what a radio is. :) )

    Just finished cutting my grass. I was listening to Clay and Buck on iHeart radio. I listen to Walton & Johnson and Glenn Beck while I walk the dog. (on AirPods of course.) Damn, I miss Rush!

    Cutting my own hairs...yup, all of ‘em!

    I haven't paid for a haircut since the 70s. When I had a full head of hair my wife cut it. When it got thin, I started buzzing it. When a bald spot appeared, I started shaving. If I had a choice, I'd rather the rest of it fell out rather than grow back.

    I bought a couple from Canemasters.com It's a formidable weapon that you can carry anywhere.

    What breed dog do you have?

    As we've gotten older we progressively downsized our dogs. We had a Bouvier DeFlandres, Irish Wolfhound, Standard Poodle... Currently, we have a ten pound Havanese...more fun than a barrel of monkeys. :)
