Can one of you fine gentleman please tell me the shape of this pipe. Its a refurbished GBD pipe , with a see through perspex stem that I bought from my tobacconist in South Africa.
Stay safe out there.
As today at 25 March 1821 the Orthodox Greeks officially started the revolution against the ottoman empire fighting turks and their allies [from albania,bosnia,egypt,croatia,algeria,tynice etc] to end a 400 year old tyranny and genocide.
Their motto was "Freedom of Death" and in few areas where the turks never manage to invade was "Win or Death".
I really like Stanwell pipes, and I like the feel of their bits. My experience has been that if you clench your pipe (in your teeth), the Stanwell bit will quickly bite through. If you don't clench your pipe, then the bits last many years.
According to the measures for the Coronavirus the Cafe are closed, you have to inform the authorities via sms or have on you a paper with signature-ID to prove that you are exiting home for a specific reason. You must wear gloves and musk and many people are not allowed to gather even in public places.
Today i manage to ''escape'' from the ringer and go somewhere hidden and i send you the message that the Greek pipe smoker WILL NEVER SURRENDER !
I found half an ounce of store bought black cavendish in my rain jacket. Must have been from my friend Martin. Mixed it half and half with some air cured Costello.
Man, am i cooped up. Went for a walk. Drank a Guinness out of a paper bag and headed over to Northlands and Borden Park. Northlands started in the 19th century as some sort of farmers market. Here's the community farm which is across from the horse track. Pipe is a GBD. Almost got my feet wet crossing the sidewalk in the park. It's not too cold but there's no sun and a humid wind.
I'm not one for turning the subjective into a clear picture. Honestly, the only way to tell you what Japan 8 tastes like would be to give you some, which I'm not going to do. But this carotte, wow. It changed it in what? A month, month and a half?
