    Spent the day smoking several bowls of Germain's Rich Dark Flake and some Fox's Dorisco Mixture. Time well spent.
    Good for you, sir! < what I really mean is: you lucky bastard! >
    Here's to many, many bowls of your favorite blends...

    Yes. This is the reason I would pay AT LEAST today's Volvo prices for a brand new 1989 Volvo 240. Before everything went power this and power that, before everything under the bonnet (that one's for Robert) was loaded with computer chip sensors. I know how to crank down a window by hand, thank you very much. My '98 V70 has just hit 250,000 miles, but swapping out the damn sensors is getting to make it less practical to keep it running.

    Still looks good, though.

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

    Steady! Not retirement, just happy unemployment. I'll need to get back to it at some point, but for the moment, I'd rather be ragged than work for my EX-employers (and better still, with my wife at work, I'll be a kept man...)

    Thanks for the thought, though

    Then I hope your new found peace of mind is all that you desire it to be and you still enjoy many bowls that are pleasing and long lasting. All the best to you as you enter this new phase...

    "Akept man"? LOL, when I was a young man, I actually thought I could make it happen. Not so innocent these days now and retirement it self seams far off. Thankfully, there are many smoke trails to help with dreaming my life away.
    Enjoy it while you can Robert. And that Germain's Rich Dark Flake really does sound tasty in the reviews. I've read it's very similar to Esoterica's Stonehaven, but can't actually verify it personally

    Temporally deprived posting - deal with it.

    Enjoyed a bowl of Old Dublin this morning.

    There's just something about a light English blend in the morning that is ....... glorious.

    Thanks to all for the good vibes on my (temporary) early retirement. So far, life as a Kept Man has been sweet - no 0515 alarm.

    Peterson's Perfect Plug in an MM Legend this morning.

    Tomorrow is the last day of the school year here in Gwinnett County. Starting Thursday I can wake up at a more reasonable 6:30 to 7am and still make it to the office on time. I used to favor fall and winter, but summer is becoming my favorite season now that I have high school aged children.

    EDIT: As soon as I saw this I remembered someone mentioned rat rods in this thread and had to post it:

    So in other words, stop reading reviews and smoke more tobacco?

    There is a motorcycle rally this weekend in the town I work in. The first few years it was fun, but now it's just LOUD and inconvenient.

    Finally I received some "flake" to enjoy with a favorite pipe --- and see what it is that you guys seem to love.

    Any advise for a first time flake smoker?

    Thanks for your input and patience with my questions.

    Sure. For maximum flavor (but more difficult lighting and more relights) just "fold and stuff" the flake.

    You can also "rub out" the flake into something approaching ribbon. It will light easier and have a more mild flavor.

    RANT MODE

    I hope at least it's a "real" motorcycle rally. Nothing worse than having a bunch of fat, middle-aged wannabe "bikers" sipping Chardonnay, loudly reminiscing about their guided "adventure" with their rented "Hogs" (probably some Suzuki cruiser - "They're just like Harleys but SOOO much more reliable...") to the Algarve or whatever the equivalent in the US might be ("The food's FANTASTIC and it's SOOO inexpensive. We found a local bar where you can get the authentic experience - not like those DREADFUL tourist places.")

    Thankfully, I recognise that I'm too old, too fat and like my Chardonnay too much to attend rallies anymore.

    /RANT MODE

    I'm off to the porch to scowl at passerbys (no reason - they just annoy me these days) and smoke an S-M Barling's Make Lovat full of Germain's Rich Dark Flake.

    Excellent ranting, Robert. We had a redo of Woodstock at the airbase back in '99 ( called Woodstock 99, of course). Nightmare. About the only thing good to come out of it was a cartoon by a local that ran on the editorial page of the Rome Daily Senile. There are three middle aged couples, dressed circa 1969, beads and headbands, grey hair, pot bellies, flowers in the ladies' hair, all drinking beer straight out of the bottle (having it raw, as it was known at the time). Wonderful cartooning. One of the guys is saying, "I hear there's some bad antacid going around." And you think motorcycle rallies are irritating?

    Mark,

    Thank you. I received some Davidoff Flake Medallions which I am enjoying in one of my Dunhill pipes. I am wondering about the ghost effect from all the 1Q I have smoked in it. It is no where near as sweet as the 1Q I am used to smoking-- but the full flavor is an absolute delight. So far -- no bite -- just a great fulll flavored smoke. I just wadded up a piece and a half and loaded it into the pipe. No relighting issues so far -- but it is burning very slow. A great change of pace. Thank you once again for the advise. I cold easily get used to this!

    Jim,

    I really like the pipe in your picture. What kind is it and where was it made? Do you smoke it often?
