...started writing for pipesmagazine.com in March!
It's been interesting, I've had to take my op-ed style of blog writing and combine it with semi-sane focus on tobacco. I'm not sure some of the crew over there (those not Bob-affiliated, anyway) have much to go on besides me just jumping in and rambling as I do...
I've made some other changes in my life such as getting even healthier, weighing about 165 and have more energy and "go-gettum" than I have in years. I'm getting counseling for my ASD. I look good, feel good and am learning more about how to live rather than just survive.
Negative, you seem like you've been here from the start.Stick":7ah5swr6 said:I'm a relative Newby.
Of which tobacco do you speak?DrumsAndBeer":knm1x16y said:Enjoying a heavy perique blend? :scratch:
Either your tastes have changed or they only allow for glowing reviews... :?: :?: :?:
Hey there Mike. I still have my ammo-case tamper--I let people use it but tell them it's a training tamper: that it's still filled with powder and primers, if you tamp too much, it blows up. Heh.SPUD 15":knm1x16y said:Glad to hear you are ok. Hope things keep going well for you. MIKE

Ah... yes. I still kind of do, though I think I even mentioned in a review I am finding it harder and harder to find new tobacco that doesn't have a little Perique in it. The story on that goes, Hal'O'The'Wynd had a little bit, and that was okay. Greg released Sixpence, and when I said I liked the unmarked sample he gave me, he laughed at me for a while. Elizabethan Mixture, while I found it boring as hell, even leaning toward unpleasant, did do Perique in a manner I found at least somewhat palatable.DrumsAndBeer":4qfcj7yp said:
That's my story, too. I have these shells that I found in the desert that I believe were training blanks, but they fit the scoop-end of an aluminum pipe nail nearly perfect. Thinking about hybridizing the two for fun. I'll send you one if/when I get around to it.Peeb":4qfcj7yp said:I use mine almost daily. I have it and a $3 drug store tamper. I've lost all the rest.
