Please sign me up.
BTW do you know what is healther smokeing camel filters or a pipe and not
inhaling.  (I currently smoke camels).

[ Welcome, and excuse me while I light a GBD Canadian to contemplate
your question...that's more like it... :-) Of course, when you smoke
cigarettes, you're also smoking paper. There are also chemical
additives in cigarette tobacco to make it burn more evenly. Pipe
tobacco, on the other hand, typically contains flavorings and such.
In "The Ultimate Pipe Book", Richard Hacker mentions that "in the
United States... pipe tobacco is normally treated with chemical
additives such as diethylene glycol, sugar, glucose, and molasses as
agents to keep the tobacco moist and sweet smelling. These tobacco
additives are not allowed in Great Britain." Additionally, "casings",
or flavorings, are added.  Hacker gives "... chocolate, honey, rum,
cherry, apple, peach, banana, coffee, liquor, and a host of other
flavorings" as possible additives. From the health standpoint, it
seems you're best off smoking a pipe with unflavored English tobacco.
Additionally, pipes are, IMHO, more fun, more pleasant to nonsmokers,
and held in better regard than cigarettes. Let us know what you
decide! -S. ]

Dear Steve Masticola:
	I have been a pipe smoker for about two years now and enjoy it
very much.  I have a small assortment of pipes and am expanding my collection
almost constantly.  I also like to try out new and different blends of 
tobbaccos and keep a list of where I bought them, name, and characteristics.
I would like the chance to share my experiences with other and gain from
them their own experiences that may help inhance my own pipe-smoking pleasure.
	Thank you for your consideration.

					Thomas A. Chrisman

[ Tom, I'm having trouble reaching your address. If any of our members
at UIUC could help out and forward this to horizon, I'd appreciate it.
If you have a chance to stop in at Jon's Pipe Shop (509 E. Green St.,
Champaign, IL), I've heard excellent reviews from all quarters, and
Jon is most gracious and accomodating. Hope I can stop in there this
summer myself! In any case, welcome, and we hope to hear more from
you! - S. ]
