Today I bought some pipe at an estate sale. Two Dunhills (one bent bulldog chestnut and one tanshell panel), a short Charatan's Make apple, a Savinelli De Luxe 904 KS with beautiful birdseye grain, and a Viggo Nielsen freehand with a plateau top.
Anyway, they've all got some degree of...
I have to trade:
2 oz minus one bowl of Carter Hall
2 oz minus one bowl of Half and Half
2 oz minus two bowls of Sugar Barrel
1 ozish of Walnut
1 ozish of Pease Embarcadero in a mason jar but I'll deliver it in the original tin Traded.
I am interested in swapping for pipe tobacco(s) that you...
So we could take a Priority mail box and pass it around so folks can sample. Let folks take a bowl or two from as many things as they'd like as long as they add a roughly equivalent number of bowls back in.
Obviously, participants must be of age. Maybe we do a round of CONUS and then...
I'm just posting this because I'm sick of seeing that Monty Python quote thread. I was really enjoying it but now it's locked. Now I won't have to feel sad everytime I see it.
Oh the title is a shoutout to Seraphim's enormously long-lived post test thread.
The software company that I work for has a few open positions in Houston.
If you are interested and have a strong background in more than one of perl, linux, freebsd, web hosting, quality assurance, systems administration, or tech support please PM me as I don't want to leak too much info in...
I'm sure that there is carnage to come but tonight went as well as can be expected. I'm uncut, not irritated, but poorly shaved. I'll call that a success.
My BNIB Dovo 6/8 Best Quality came in this afternoon's mail but I wasn't expecting it until early next week. I figured wth and tried it...
We'll see if this thread stays active at all.
I'll go first.
Today I'm drinking the Pre Ming-Qing Long Jing aka dragon well.
It looks and smells like grass clippings at first but a quick steep yields an aromatic soup. This is my first attempt at this tea. Not shabby.
I have some Long Feng (aka dragon well iirc) and some Bai Sha Lu from Jing Tea Shop.
I don't have a complete gong fu setup at work so I'm stuck with an infuser cup for a spell. Do folks gong fu greens at all?
How do I brew these? I've never played with greens and bought them on spec.
Mine just arrived this week and I've used it twice. So far it doesn't beep after the initial boil has been hit or to indicate button presses. The reviews were mixed but I'm happy so far. We'll see how it holds up.
Not cheap but way cheaper than anything else I found that will...
So I wander in to a local tea shop on my lunch break. A sales
lady approaches me and asks if she can help me and whether
I've been there before. I haven't. Her eyes light up.
Warning sign #1: We don't get many men in by themselves.
Sigh. She points me to a "smell bar" with lots of...
It appears that I'm not allergic to TGQ Cavendish Black after all (so far)!
I had used it once before and ended up with an itchy red face. After tonight's usage there isn't anything at all. I guess I just had a tough first shave with this cream and overreacted.
Hooray for trying the same...
