Born in Miami Florida. Married a girl from Indiana, so guess why I don't live in Miami anymore? Have a Min-Pin named Speck. He's my constant companion and my constant annoyance. Play guitar, love the Beatles and Glenn Miller. Love Latin foods, especially Cuban dishes. Current hobby is baking artisan breads. Long live the Pipe.

I prefer the straight pipe, and now have over 50 pipes, both bent and straight.. I seem to prefer mixtures containing Latakia, and Cavendish. My favorite everyday smoke is Prince Albert. My second choice is Bombay Court. I buy my tobacco at a shop in Greenwood, Indiana called, Pipe Puffers. Their bulk blends are excellent. If ever you're in Indianapolis, check them out. Great place, friendly atmosphere... Update 12/20/07 Well due to the wonders of Ebay, I now have quite an assortment of pipes, including a few straight stem models, which I have come to appreciate almost as much as my bent stem models. I also have come to appreciate some very tasty aromatic blends. I love most English blends as well.
