    Help a friend in need!

    Shouldn't be a tough repair-- just send it to a pipe repair guy. In my experience, a new stem is about a $30 job. I have used Howard Schultz and Mark Tinsky to do repair work, both are great. I am sure other guys will be able to chime in with suggestions as well. Good luck!

    GL Quiet Nights

    I have tins that I have smoked new with others that have a few years on them. It isn't the same as Penzance, but that is hardly a requirement for it to be cellar worthy. Lovely stuff if you like latakia; definitely worth trying new (and likely only better with age).

    One quick word of warning-- Haddo's can sneak up on you... I won't go into details, but...I learned the hard way...

    *** Presenting: The 2017 Badger & Blade Brown Leaf L.E. Pipe ***

    I am so glad to see so many people lining up for this great looking pipe. I am having to pass sadly (complete pipe buying hiatus, full stop), but I would otherwise love that beauty in my lineup. Well done to Paul and to Price (and any other of his "helpers") in bringing this pipe together (and...

    Are you trying to ensure things don't go out until fall for Tattewell?

    Pipe PIF

    That is a great looking pipe! In it for the relaxation, when possible. (Not in though!)

    OK, this is pretty cool. Kramer Blends

    BTW-- I am not sure why there is no "edit" button available on my first post, but there are far too many "cools" for a single paragraph... ;) I look forward to some reviews from you guys-- interesting to see how many of the old blends are still of interest with the changes in people's taste...

    OK, this is pretty cool. Kramer Blends

    I think this window into people's "personal blends" is kind of cool. Who knows how accurate the recipes are, but it seems like they should be pretty cool...

    Forthcoming Changes to FDA Regulations?

    I am posting this question with the hope that we can keep off of the election as a whole (though I realize this is a loaded question, so Mods can certainly delete if it derails), but, does anyone have any sense of Trumps position on the FDA regulations? I haven't seen anything one way or the...

    Got gifted around 5 pipes - how do i tell what tobacco to use?

    I wouldn't worry about "ruining" them (absent a few notoriously ghosty blends), it may take time with the pipes to figure out what are best matches. Certainly post some pictures!

    Open season on cuban cigars?

    Saw that, but how does the FDA rules work since they haven't been sold in the use prior to 2007? Are they still grandfathered in?

    Outdoors Smoking Chair?

    We have a wicker furniture set sitting in our carport converted to a covered patio, with the chair being much more comfortable than it out to be. Favorite nights are summer thunderstorms--staying dry and smoking while watching the rain pass through are a great time.
