"Shawn, I recommend storing it unloaded and clean as reasonably possible.  If the pipe doesn't dry out and rest adequately between smokes, it can get sour.  I store mine with a clean pipe cleaner in, just to help absorb any extra…"

"One of my favorites is "The Soul of Baseball. A Road Trip Through Buck O'Neils America" by Joe Posnanski. It has a lot of stories from the Negro Leagues and I think Buck O'Neil is a fascinating character. Shawn"

Best to store a pipe loaded or unloaded?

Gentlemen,I enjoy smoking a pipe each evening. I currently use an EA Carey "Magic inch", but I'm looking to add some estate pipes to my collection.I was wondering what the consensus is on storing a pipe between smokes? Is it best to leave the ash and any remaining tobacco in the bowl or empty it when putting it aside for the evening? My concern, and the reason for the question, is that there is sometimes a small amount of moisture in the bottom of the bowl. It's not much (and is probably due to…See More

Advice re abusive boyfriend of ex

My ex has been dating an alcoholic abusive policemen on and off for about 4 years.  After she sued him for damages related to an injury from his drunken rage, they parted ways for a year and a half but now appear to be back together.  She is keeping him away from our sons (now 11 and 13) but her personality changes a lot when they are together.  She disconnects maternally from our sons and becomes combative to me and her family of origin.  Unless there is some trauma to boys, I don’t have good…See More
