• 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.

greenmonster714 probably noticed (as I have) that you are stressed about pipe blending. As one 70 year old codger to another, I can assure you that gm714 was just trying to help, by presenting an alternative to the Red VA. As for the VA Red, it's just one of those agricultural commodities that sometimes are not available.

We're all amateurs at this tobacco stuff (except for Don, Larry and skychaser). We do try to be helpful to other members. Sometimes each of us gets grumpy.

To a degree I am frustrated and I am not hiding it. To a degree!

I am a novice and admit it openly, but when I have rather a straightforward question I know what I am asking for.

I am glad you have it. I can place a safe bet that many members of this forum have a bag or more of Red Virginia. This doesn't change my request.
I am not really looking for a substitute or something "like" Red Virginia.

Bob I am impressed, you are a good man, but you forgot to include an old codger.
