    Just curious, how fast was the car moving while you were posting those pics? Remarkable clarity! Whatever, I'm finishing up a bowl of RY in the FourDot pot and off to bed early. Looks like there might be more big storms tonight. Man, last night was LOUD. Not usually quite that much lightning with the thunderstorms around here.

    Terry,

    You sure do have some beautiful pipes! I need to buy a camera just for this forum. I have several meershaum pipes and love everyone of them. They are a true delight to smoke! Dry, cool, and the tabacco really tastes great. I never want them to end. Thanks for the pictures!

The rim of my meer became translucent towards the end of the bowl (see second shot below), and the sides were almost, no were, oozing just the tiniest bit of beeswax. You might notice the glistening on the sides of the bowl:




    I've said it before, but will repeat it here: if you've never pampered your meerschaum with a fresh bath of wax, give it a shot.

    Astley's No. 55 in a Radice bent Dublin. I decided to switch this stuff to a larger pipe. Smoking a thin ribbon like this when most of your Virginia fixes come from flakes or broken flakes gets frustrating in a small pipe.

    Delayed post forgot to post last night, I smoked some Dart Mix from Jim and it was very good. Don't remember but maybe 1 relight in a MM Legend. Definitely need to pick up some of the stuff you used to create this mix and play around with some blends of my own maybe. If you could post a rough list of what's in it and the % of each so I have an idea of how much of the aromatic is in there that would be great. Thanks again for the sample.

    I am confused as usual -- and I just received my first tin of flake tobacco. Are you saying that your prefer to smoke flake tobacco in a larger bowl? Is that a personal preference or over all wisdom? Thanks for your patience with me -- but this really interests me.

    Everyone has their own preference, but I prefer a smaller bowl for flake tobacco.

    I prefer a smaller bowl for flake tobacco because otherwise I cannot walk afterwards.

    No, you're not confused; I just worded that badly. Most of the Virginias I smoke are flakes or broken flakes, so I automatically think smaller bowl when I smoke Virginias. Astley's No. 55, however, is a fine ribbon. Not shag, but a finer ribbon than many. So, I automatically grabbed the small bowl, as it's a Virginia, but because it's a ribbon, it burns much faster, and the bowl is over way too quickly. So I switched to the Radice, which happens to be the biggest bowl I have.

    Smoked up the Ashton Artisan's Blend and most of the Fox's Dorisco Mixture during the afternoon and early evening.

    Time for a change of pace with some Louisiana Flake in my ancient Barling.

    We're all bozos on this bus, Michael. What flake did you go for, just out of curiosity?

    Davidoff Flake Medallion -- mostly because it was the only one I could find that was in stock where I was looking. It is very good and I am enjoying it. But I am noticing the flake to have a stronger flavor and much slower burn than the 1Q I am used to. I want to try others as I can find them to purchase. I had never really heard of flake before and the Brothers keep talking about it and how good it is -- so being a noobie -- I had to try and learn for myself. Great experience! Thank you to everyone for your patience with me and my questions. I have so much to learn oh Masters.....

    Ya think Michael is ready for the Irish Flake?

    I usually rub out all flakes, so bowl size/selection is not really any issue for me. In fact, I can't really remember the last time I smoked a rolled/stuffed flake - it was probably Ennerdale, though.

    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
