• Dear Guest,

    We've been using a forum format called vBulletin for over seven years and the program is no longer being developed, so that means no more updates or security patches. vBulletin has never been compatible with search engine optimization and it does not support the multitude of various devices most people use to access the internet, so it's time to say goodbye to vBulletin.

    For these reasons we have moved our forum to a new format that will support and encourage growth for the next generation of grower and DIY tobacco users.

    So please post any issues you're having with using the new site.

    As usual, you may login with your old password.

Whole Leaf Tobacco

Happy Canada Day, folks.

Canada Day celebrates the unification of Canada under a Constitution. July 4, in the US merely celebrates the thirteen colonies telling Great Britain to take a hike. It wasn't until 13 years later (including 6 years of war) that we got around to ratifying a constitution. It's a day of introspection, Chinese fireworks, bier und bratwurst.

Happy Canada Day.

I did not know the difference. Thank you, Bob. We've got brisket.

Speaking of brisket, the thirteen colonies were unable to defeat the British, until French Royal Navy stepped in, and saved our bacon. We freed ourselves from the tyranny of an absolute monarchy by accepting (indeed ardently soliciting) the direct intervention of another absolute monarchy. Ah, well. All's well that ends well. (Didn't end so well for the French monarchy. The very year that the US ratified its constitution also saw the overthrow of Louis XVI.) History is so messy.
