"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…"

"I enjoyed some Frog Morton's Cellar a few years ago at the Chicago Pipe Show- a very good smoke.  Last night I opened a tin of MacBaren 7 Seas Black Blend and have smoked a couple of bowls in my vintage Nording.  I picked this up at…"

"I'm in Afghanistan and a couple times a week I'm really enjoying McClelland Craftsbury: Frog Morton's Cellar, It's a nice whiskey blend of Latakia, Great aromatics and a smooth smoke, one of my favorites."

Joshua replied to Hercules Koutsouradis's discussion Any recommendations? in the group Pipe & Co
"It takes a lot of frequent practice for the techniques to become second nature.  Over time, you'll find what works for you.  Fortunately, smoking is a very enjoyable activity, so it's not a chore to "practice"! As far…"

"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…"

"I had a bit of Great Outdoors which I enjoy. It went perfect with the 74 degree afternoon this weekend here.  I am a Gary Taubes fan too. His book 'why we get fat' is excellent."

Joshua replied to Christopher F.'s discussion E-Cigars. Have you tried them?
"I'm a pipe smoker, occasionally smoke a cigarette, even more rarely, a cigar. 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…"

"The snow stopped earlier, and the wind died down, so I took the dog out back and had a 1/3 bowl of Stanwell "Melange" in a straight billiard.  Good stuff."

Most recent smoke?

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

Shane replied to Vytautas's discussion What Do We Learn From History?
"History allows a conversation with the past. Mostly excitingly the great successes, because the failures were rarely recorded. Perhaps more importantly it provides shared origins. Common themes and stories we can all look to and say, "This is…"

Michael Nuta replied to Michael Nuta's discussion Blazer question?
"Thanks for all the replies, you helped me make up my mind. I ended up buying a peacoat instead, which is a lot more useful for me right now. As for the blazer, I decided that when I do get a jacket, I'll go for a grey or maybe navy one."

What Do We Learn From History?

I decided to put this question in the main forum, because if it was in a group like The History Buffs, there would be a smaller audience. Because everyone learns history at some point in his education, it is a matter that could be of interest to almost all members and not just a select few.So we all have learned some form of history in school, from local to national to the histories of far off lands and times. What is it that we learn from people of bygone places and times? There are some…See More
