    fifth vaccine shot of the year

    2 part covid, 2 part shingles, and the flu shot today; I hope that's the last one for a while! :rolleyes:

    TAD -- yes, I'm weak!

    Yes, I have more than enough, but when I saw Smoking Pipes had some G&H I could resist and ordered 4 oz of Coniston and 6 oz of Scotch Flake. If $ wasn't tight, I'd have ordered a lot more!

    A pipe mystery with a 'rival of sherlock Holmes'

    I first became aware of the character of Dr Thorndyke back in the 70s with a British import to PBS called 'The Rivals of Sherlock Holmes.' I'm reading/rereading the early Dr Thorndyke stories, and one of the short stories might be of interest to pipers. The author, R. Austin Freeman, was...

    Rereading the Canon

    While I have read selected stories over the past few years (I often use 'The Sign of Four' when I teach a course on the Victorians for example), I don't think I've reread the entire canon since sometime in the '70s. So, using the excuse ... err, make that 'rationale' ... that I hope to mine...

    Some GH blends now at Smoking Pipes

    If you are not on their notifications list, you might not be aware that Smoking Pipes for the moment has some GH blends back in stock (who know for how long). I ordered 12 ozs (Rum Flake, Scotch Flake, and Brown Flake scented and unscented). No Ennerdale or Grasmere, but they did have some...

    most Facebook ads don't bother me....

    ...but the growing number of ads for funeral homes and cremation services I'm getting aren't putting me in a festive mood!:rolleyes:

    1st day of class....

    I have 4 classes this semester, 2 each day. 3 gen ed classes of 40-45 each; today were two world civ classes. Tried the face shield but the students couldn't understand me and I sounded like I was in an echo chamber to myself. Fortunately the space I'm in the students are at least 18 feet away...

    Mr Snuff

    I keep swearing I won't buy any more pipe tobacco, but then something pops up. In this case, Mr Snuff (operating I believe out of the Isle of Man) restocks pipe tobacco after a very long absence. Considering UK prices, just a small order of Revor Plug and Condor Long Cut, and who knows when it...

    1959 N Wolfe pilot...with Wm Shatner!

    A pilot for a Nero Wolfe series, with William Shatner as Archie Goodwin!  I can see why it didn't sell, but it's still interesting <iframe width="560" height="315" src="" frameborder="0" loading="lazy" allowfullscreen ></iframe>

    HH Rustica

    Although my cellar is overflowing, when I saw this I gave to the temptation. They arrived today, and being the impatient sort, I cracked a tin. Nice earthy tin note, and that carries over into the bowl. Taking heed of the hype, I tried it in a Cobbit Shire. Is there N, as advertised? Yes, I...
