Well the subway line that takes me to work today is shut down, so I will stand-by at home with another cuppa and a Falcon filled with Ennerdale. I'll try and deal with the frustration... I hope my manager couldn't hear the smile on my face.

Rich’s Craven Claw in my new Radice Rind. Still learning shapes so not sure what this considered? Only my second smoke in this pipe and both have been nirvana Image

Out of curiousity - how many bowls would you say you get through in an average day? No judgement whatsoever... more like jealousy, honestly.
It is probably 12(ish) bowls a day. A better metric might be about a 12 oz tub every two weeks. In the late 70's and early 80's when I was a one-blend smoker, that was the rate for sure. I think that has been reasonably constant.

the only codger i interact with on occasion probably could not answer this question. he continuously scoops and lights randomnly, occasional ash dump, doesn't really pay much attention
This is probably the best answer.
