This would be maybe my third or fourth stab at a balanced blend, working with what I have available so far (un-kilned/un-aged). Roughly eyeballed equal parts:
-Flue cured Prilep cavendish
-Flue cured Delhi 34 Cavendish
-Flue cured Delhi 34
-Colour cured Yellow Twist Bud

I enjoyed the heck out of it. I wish some you lived a bit closer where I could smoke it with you, and have your expert palates explain what's going on here. All I can say is I loved it, yet I suspect a touch of Latakia would have launched it into another dimension.

I smoked a bowl in the cricket filled solitude and clouded moon-light of my garden whence it came.

I name it "the plowmans lunch" for the rustic, 'farmy', Bento box style in which it is compiled. Perhaps "plowman's night cap" would be more appropriate tonight.

A commensurate glass of cheap wine to wash it down.

Father Soldier Son is a 2020 American documentary film, it follows the family of Brian Eisch, a Sgt. First Class in the United States Army and the effects of his deployment to the War in Afghanistan has on him and his young sons.



I didn't expected to hear things like these from a professional soldier at 2017: I'm gonna be honest, i don't know too much about the war in Afghanistan directly. I don't know what started the war in Afghanistan. I don't know if Al-Qaeda is based in Afghanistan.
I don't really follow that side of politics too much. I don't really follow why wars happen.



I am Davidoff Malawi in a Stanwell 184 Royal, double espresso beside me.

Is that one of the new autonomous vehicles I’ve been reading about or did the boat get loose?


No has an anchor at the prow but due to the 640x480 resolution many times some details are not visible.

Uri: The Surgical Strike (2019) ,based on a true story, it's the Indian Army ''answer'' to a terrorist attack of a Pakistani guerilla team inside Pakistan.
By the way, have you ever seen a modern Special Operation Team without any suppressors in their weapons?



While watching i am smoking Olaf Poulsson Νο. 12, double Greek coffee beside me.

Well, its finally cool enough that a pipe seemed appropriate. This is a plug that I have had pressing for ~4 weeks. It's an attempt at a navy flake. I forget the proportions but its mostly bright VA ( with some VA red tips), about 20% perique, and a small % of MD609 Cavendish. I cased with a shot of barrel aged rum, 1 tsp of sugar, and 3 drops of bergamot oil (in the rum). Pressed at about ~ 2 tons.

Very nice, 0 tongue bite. Bergamot complements VA very well, you don't taste or smell it, but it accentuates the grassy sweet VA flavors. This kind of reminds me of Mac baren navy flake
