    What are the odds?... yeah, my old Cb's get lost in the shuffle quite a bit too, but I love this stubby little (actually quite large) guy. He hangs just right and at 70+ years-old it adds a certain something to my smoke that day. Need to scrub the vulcanite stem a bit though. Damn vulcanite.

    PA testing a Tim West. Does anyone have any advice on breaking in a brand new pipe -- other than just smoking it?

    There's a lot of theories of this and that with breaking in a new pipe, but they all seem to boil down to 'smoke it until you get to the bottom of the bowl'.

    You just missed Pipe-breaking-in Day!

    On Midsummer's Day, sacrifice an unblemished white ram to the Pipe Deities at your local Pagan Altar. (This is best done in the company of a young Virgin Priestess, but that's just for your own fun.) As the blood and life drain from the beast, collect a few drops of the life essence and smear on any pipes to be brought into use. At your usual significant Barrow or other Ancient Druidic Monument, process the anointed implements thrice widershins, thrice rub-a-dub. Sacred vows may be chanted according to local custom. Please consult a registered Shaman or Druid. Details can be found in Yellow Pages.

    Then smoke the hell out of the pipes.

    Thank you for this most excellent advice Sir. I am wondering if you are as wise as FreeStoke aka Jim and if the results of your methodism will match up to his. I suppose the only way to find out is to journey down the path you have laid out before me. Such is as it must be to discover the truth.

    Who knew such simple things could lead to such great pleasure? I shall follow your sage advice to a "Tee". I seem to have almost all the necessary ingredients in abundance for the ritual you have so generously shared. New unsmoken pipe -- check. Unblemished white ram -- check. Altar -- check. Ready to process thrice widershins, thrice rub-a-dub -- check. Sacred vows according to local custom -- I've got tons of them -- check. Now -- where to find the young Virgin Priestess? I don't seem to have one of those handy at the moment. This could be the sticky wicket of the journey Robert is sending me upon. Thus, it appears as if if I must embark upn a quest for the one missing ingredient to your ritual Sir. Otherwise the test will not be true and therefore evaluation of your method impossible. I shall keep you abreast of the events as they unfold.

    You really are too kind....

    I closed out the night with a Legend full of PA. It just didn't taste very good tonight. I think I have been smoking too much Sronehaven and the PA suffered by comparison.

    Kicking off the evening with a mindless bowl of CB white in my falcon while I wait for another batch of bottles to get clean.

    I am! My IPA just won first place at the CA state fair. Unfortunately it is all gone. Most of what I have right now is 22 oz bottles which is harder to ship I imagine. I also have a strong cider (12% abv) if that sounds interesting. I'll see what I can rustle up. I've never shipped it before, lol!

    Congratulations John! Winning first place for an IPA in that competition in the state that invented American IPA, well, that's a mighty fine task!!! I hope you saved that recipe...

    All this talk of IPAs. Enjoying a Ninkasi Total Domination, with a bowl of Royal Yacht topped with Tambo. Followed by a Padilla Dominus. Nice evening out.
    1792 Flake was first produced in 1830, exactly 139 years before man walked on the moon. Coincidence?
