    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    Finally had some good weather and some time for a pipe. Bob's Chocolate Flake in a cob. My first taste of Bob's and I was pleased. I'm happy to have some cellared.

    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    We pronounce Boatswain as "boat-sun" but we'd never call a Boatswains Mate just "boat-sun" because it would sound to similar to Bosun (where the "t" is noticeably dropped in pronunciation). Boatswain Mates are either called Boatswain Mates, "boats" or "BMs" for short. A Bosun is simply called Bosun.

    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    In my service Boatswain is an enlisted term. Bosun is reserved for the Chief Warrent Officers. You can call a Boatswains Mate "Boats" but you'd never refer to a Bosun as anything other than "Bosun" or "sir".

    Snuff Of The Day (SOTD)

    Haven't had time or the weather for pipes recently unfortunately (I miss them) but I have been enjoying a lot of snuff. Today its Otto Schmalzler and it is a fantastic pinch. I highly recommend it if you are a fan of the genre.

    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    My first bowl in a few weeks...and a good one! Finally found some time for some LNF in a Savinelli 673 Series III. Just the smoke I needed.

    What Brown leaf 'good stuff' are you waiting on to be delivered?

    You'll like it I'm sure. I think I remember you commenting on Lane Raspberry (?). Blood Red Moon is probably the best cherry tobacco I've had.

    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    My days have been so packed with training I've just been too tired for a bowl at the end of the day. I'm looking forward to things slowing down soon. Until then I've just been a fly on the wall in here living vicariously through you guys. Enjoy your smokes gentlemen!

    Pipe smoking in fiction (novels, TV, movies)

    In the HBO series The Pacific Eugene Sledge picks up the pipe while on Okinawa. When he gets home someone asks him why he started smoking a pipe. He replied something along the lines of, "It calms me down. I always have something to do, be it smoking or cleaning."

    Pipe Of The Day (POTD)

    I hadn't smoked anything heavily aromatic in a while. I brought a pouch of tobacco that I hadn't opened in a while and found some 1Q (I think). It had probably been in there 9 months or more. The blend definitely calmed down some and became more enjoyable as a result. The time in the pouch...

    Snuff Of The Day (SOTD)

    Haven't had much time for a pipe recently. Mostly using snuff. A lot of Magic Moments, Schmalzlerfranzl and Toque Lime Toast. SG Golden Glow at the moment. Refreshing!

    Pipe smoking in fiction (novels, TV, movies)

    Obligatory mention of Parnassus on Wheels and Haunted Bookshop by Christopher Morley. Great books centered on a pipe smoking protagonist.
