"I'm a total novice to the pipe smoking world. Bought my first pipe back in March, and only recently got around to buying tobacco and a lighter to try it out.
Don't laugh. But I bought my first tobacco blend from the local…"

"My first blend was a bulk English blend called "Fox and Hound", sold under different levels at many tobacco shops, but made by Altadis (who, along with Lane, make most of the bulk tobaccos that you see in jars at the shops). I still…"
"I have a Missouri Meerschaum loaded up with some MacBaren Stockton that has been aging since (at least) 1985 (so it's older than me). Going to go give it a light in a minute.
74 degrees? Man. Northern IN here, it…"

If you're smoking a cigar properly, there's not much more of a health risk than with a pipe. As I don't generally smoke cigars, I haven't…"
Hey all. I'm active on another pipesmoking discussion forum, and have been active on a couple in the past. I've always found it interesting to read what others are smoking.Feel free to discuss as little or as much about your smoke (i.e., describe the tobacco, time, what you were doing during the smoke, the pipe, etc) as you'd like.Right now, I'm just an outdoor smoker, and it's been too cold. I've only smoked a couple bowls this year (both within the last couple weeks:A bowl of "Five…See More

Tell me if what I am noticing is a real phenomenon, or just me:I've been lifting for about two years, and there is muscular growth around my chest, biceps, and triceps. This has affected how my shirts fit, and I've needed to give away many of my old t-shirts and dress shirts. However, I am not sure what's happening with shirts with regard to the shoulder seam.That seam where the sleeve connects with the torso of the shirt should be at the top of your arm, not down your arm. If it's down your…See More
