Started smoking a pipe when Nixon was president and have smoked one off and on since. I wish I had more time to review blends I smoke. Some guys post as many as four reviews a DAY , and I can't seem to get that many up in a month. Oh well. Hopefully, they are helpful nonetheless (though I once did three in a day).

I love watching these doomsday preppers in action, trying to figure out what will be valuable in the zombie apocalypse. Hell, boys, the answer is tobacco, just sayin'...

I give a lot of 3- and 4-star reviews, I suppose, but the reason is that I tend to stick to the good stuff. I've found that there's a reason some blends are, say, a 3.8 and some 2.0 .... why smoke the lesser ones when there are so many great ones? Or as Hot Lips Houlihan once asked, when you can have Adonis, who wants Pinocchio?
