Hello PSF! I've been largely inactive online lately. In a friendly contest with a coworker and buddy of mine, I gave up social media for eleven days, and it made me realize that life without the internet - aside from email and music streaming - can be really nice. The only thing I really missed was the pipe forums.

Anyways, I've been enjoying my pipes a lot lately, and have been on a GH binge. Today I'm smoking Louisiana Perique Flake. While I was away I tried Bob's Chocolate Flake, and instantly fell in love with that. Aside from those, I've been smoking OJK and Picayune in my after dinner pipes.

I hope you've all been doing well, and I wish you happy piping!

Still holding off on the pipe... I feel better than yesterday so that's some good news. I plan on firing up the zip sometime later on in the day to kick off March.

Ok, I have to do some backpeddling/crow eating now. I left a bowls worth of M79 for 24 hours to dry.. still wasn't remotely dry. Nuked it in the microwave for 10 seconds and that did it.
I am about half way through it and it is completely different dried out to a crisp. I am still not getting anything floral from it, but it does taste like root beer burley. I don't love it, but I also don't hate it either and will probably bulk dry and smoke it. I don't know how anyone could smoke this stuff straight from the pouch though... vile.

Well my new Peterson "Baskerville" Meer is taking her maiden voyage with some Dark Fired Mixture. :D I can tell that the previous owner smoked heavy Latakia/English blends as there is definitely a ghostly presence in this pipe but luckily I really like Latakia. Also getting some floral Oriental notes as I get to the bottom of the bowl but I think that regular doses of a strong DFK blend will tame this spirit over time. ;) So far she's smoking great just like all of my Holmes series pipes and I can see a new love affair developing. :D

My wife just told me yesterday that she prefers straights over bents... welp, I guess the bents are for work then! Great looking pipe, is what I'm trying to say. :buddy:
