    Saving the leaf

    I had a sealed tobacco jar in a glass container full of tobacco.  It was put into a box and stored about a year ago by the queen of my double wide. The lid was accidently bumped and partially popped off during storage and the tobacco was left to dry out by accident.  Is it possible to save that...

    New Meerschaum ordered

    My wife cleaned house and moved a bunch of boxes upto the attic, the only problem is my favorite Meerschaum is missing and nobody seems to know anything about it. So I broke down and bought another Meerchaum on line. My only complaint from buying them online is that when they arrive, they...

    Rhodesian vs bulldog-

    Thanks for the info.... I am still completely confused and in the deep end of the pool.... I guess I will just accept whatever the maker called it..and continue calling it that while I am in possession of it.... or maybe I will just name it "ralph" and call it a night?

    Loose stem-

    I have an old kaywoodie that I have kept soley because it is the only pipe that fits into the pocket of my tobacco pouch, but unfortunately the stem (which slides into the body of the pipe) is now a loose fit, and I am always afraid it will fall apart when I am using it. Is there a quick fix...

    My tobacco cellar and non-smoking "smoking room"

    I love the downstairs stuff you guys are doing for your man caves...Here in Dallas Texas we are pretty much on a giant slab of clay in the middle of a scrub desert. The moisture content varies from one extreme to the other due to the seasons in this Texas desert. The result is that soil shifts...
