Back in March, David over at one of the most intellectually and aesthetically sophisticated pipe-smokers blogs going, TobaccoDays.com, launched “The Most Creative Pipe Photo Contest, which I heard about through Neill Archer Roan’s A Passion for Pipes blog.  In addition to walking away with some nice pipe-prize money, the winners, he wrote, would have their photos displayed in an exhibition at this year’s Chicagoland Pipe Show. If you haven’t seen the winners yet, quit reading this and go over to his site. You’ll be agog with delight. Leggi di più

PIPE ACQUISITION DISORDER, or P.A.D., first recognized by kapnismologist Dean James in a classic ASP post at the turn of the new century, is by now a well-known disorder among pipe smokers the world over.
