• 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

Richard Arvin Overton, who just died on 27 DEC 2018, was not only the oldest living World War 2 veteran in the US, but was also the oldest man in the United States at the time of his death at 112 years of age. The grandson of a slave, he served with distinction in the military from September 1940 until October 1945.



When asked the secret of his longevity, he attributed it to smoking 8 cigars a day, and adding whiskey to his morning coffee.

Hats off to Richard Overton.

Bob
