    It may be just me, but of all the cobs I have (six, I believe) the Country Gentleman is by far the best and most reliable smoker; I have two of them. And since it hasn't been said yet, the only thing not good about a Missouri Meerschaum corn cob pipe is the crappy stem it comes fitted with; apologies to those who like them. I think we all would encourage you to pick up a Forever Stem (here: 'Forever' Stems), assuming once you try a cob you agree with us that they're smokeworthy.

    I can only go a couple of days with briars before I reach for a Country Gentleman, like this banded one with a tortoise Forever Stem.

    I was there when they were putting the comet together! As for Wang, how soon we forget the Wang computers, eh?

    But Mark is right. Both professors were completely incompetent graders. Although a decent enough teacher, Haley was pretty much insane as far as I could tell. I got every answer right on one test -- every answer -- and he gave me a mark in the low 70s somewhere. Didn't like my artwork.

    Sugar Barrel redux this lovely day. About the only complaint would be that it might be a little windy today.

    Beautiful sunny spring day here in The South of England. I'm celebrating with a bowl of Germain's Royal Jersey Perique Mixture in an S-M Barling's Make Guinea Grain Straight Apple. Lovely little pipe bought for about 10 delivered. eBay is a fine place...

    Certainly not forgotten and possibly not gone. A Wang machine used to be in my late father-in-law's loft and a Zenith CPM O/S machine as well as much else. Probably still there. If only I'd kept my Science of Cambridge (Sinclair) Mk14a bare board Z80 computer; my first "PC". It featured a mighty 256, count them (it won't take long), BYTES of RAM. And you tell the youth of today that, and they won't believe you...

    Funny how these things still rankle after all these years. I had a great (unintelligibly Glaswegian) Maths teacher in Secondary school. We once took an exam with 108 questions on it. As most of the class got marks in the 70s at best he decided to simplify things and give the mark as a percentage. I got 108. Consequently he had to work out the real percentage score for the whole class of about 30. He gave me 86% for being a smart-arse and making him work. Seemed fair to me (still the best mark by a wide margin), but I know I got 108% in that exam...

    Speaking as an iconoclastic pedant, I think that Middleton tobaccos get a short shrift in the pipe smoking world and that everyone should smoke at least one bowl a day, barring illness or injury, either straight up or mixed with something more substantial (say Dark Birdseye or Kendal's Kentucky), preferably in a cob. Hitting the 56 year old PA, right now, in the Country Gentleman, walking the talk.

    By everyone, of course I mean men, women and children over the age of eight. Every session of Congress should open with all the Senators and Congressmen and aides and gallery firing up their USA made Missouri Meerschaums with an American made codger burley. A new MM, a small sample of Middleton, a box of matches with official USA insignia, and a pipe nail would be part of the hand-out goodies for the Congressional Visitors' Tour.

    Not an uncommon surname in Germany. There are many Dr Wankers. In fact, Germany is a country that is full of Wankers. Our own Wankers are not to be ignored. Wherever in the world you go, there will always be at least one Wanker.

    I once worked for a German manager. He needed to have the locals customs explained to him. In the UK, one answers the phone with a polite "Hello" (although I sometimes go with A Graham Bell's prefered "Ahoy hoy") . In Germany, it is common to bark out your surname. He answered the phone with a loud and sharp "Scheit!"

    (I thought I would add: A good translation of "Scheit" would be "Faggot". Doesn't get much better.)

    The Royal Yacht for my morning commute.



    I would certainly not hesitate to pick up another Stanwell Antique estate pipe - this one is perfect, and my best smoker.
