Good evening fellow pipers, new guy here. First and foremost thank you very much for allowing me to sign-on the forum group. My name is Jim and I have been enjoying pipe smoking (few cigars to be completely honest) since I was 19. Being an old man now I'm finally getting with the times and becoming active on the various venues for folks like us who have common .interest. Guess I'm just historically lame in that respect. With the whole COVID deal, back in 2020 I started having a little more free time and so this kind of activity just kind of took root. First and foremost I am an English/Scottish/Balkan guy but I do like all other genres. When I'm not smoking blends, I like to write about them and take a hand at restorative pipe works. Looking forward to learning and sharing with you all. Thanks so much again!
