The ''desk" generals told to soldiers that after so many days of bombing nothing could left alive from the enemy, the charge would be like a walk with a stick and the first one will take a barrel of beer and a ball to play with his platoon. A captured prisoner inform them that the germans were alive in their bankers and singing while waiting for them but the ''wise'' generals launch the attack at 7.30am broad daylight, the result: even the fence wire was almost intact and the machine guns waiting, 57,470 casualties at 1st day in Somme.



I am watching the film: The Trench (1999) while smoking Dan Pipe Jubilee 30.

Midway (2019) film based on the Attack on Pearl Harbor and the subsequent Battle of Midway during World War II.
The Intelligence officer (and a Navy director too) were pipe smoking in that film which ''as always'' had some exaggerations and historical mistakes.

Same situation here in France, only basic necessities store are allowed to open...

That's the kind of moments in a lifetime you can be proud having a veggies garden !
But we have just begun the seeds... it will need a few weeks before the we can eat anything.

Keep safe.

Yesterday, I blended up a new batch of Talus Shred (5 parts WLT VA Bright to 3 parts WLT Perique). The poker sitter pipe was made for me by FTT member, @Knucklehead. The ultralight-weight polypropylene mug was made for me by dinosaurs.

The above photo is obviously posed, since I never have any container of liquid near my computer. (Due to its advanced age, the computer is at extremely high risk of severe complications from a coffee spill.) I too am not sitting at a Greek cafe. Sigh!

Well, I'm going to try this L'Assomption 201 today. I unwrapped to check for mold. There was a tiny amount at one end where it wasn't compressed as tightly. I sliced off a bit and rewrapped it. DSC_1057~2.JPG

And I unwrapped this Japan 8 to check for mold and its just fine. But, man! The smell is totally changed. It reminds me of clove oil and cedar, and cured meat. Gotta try this too.

An Air China plane carrying 18 tonnes of Chinese healthcare material arrived in Greece to meet the urgent needs of our country due to a coronavirus. In fact, by themselves the Chinese mission had also placed banners in Greek and Chinese.

I am smoking McLintock Black Cherry, double Greek coffee plus cool water beside me.
