Steve,

   Due to the short time between now and my trip (my fault, I kept postponing
such an important message...), I would appreciate if you could forward this
message to the group as soon as possible.

-----

Hello,

  I have a request for the group.  I will be going to South of Germany, more
precisely a town called Germisch about one hour south of Munich, for a
conference, and then will be spending a few days in Vienna, by the end of this
week.  If any of you out there in Europe have any suggestions or pointers to
good pipe shops in the area, I would appreciate to learn about it.  Sorry for
the short notice, but things have been pretty hectic at my work.

  Hope to hear from you guys in Europe.  I just read the message from Martin in
Bonn, Germany.

   Anyway, I will report any pipe exciting adventure in Europe to the group.

- Elias

[ I was out of town on vacation, but here it is! Sorry, I can't help
you out myself, but perhaps some of our European members could. Were
it Denmark, I'd send you to Larsen's in Copenhagen. -S. ]

I've wanted for some time to pass on word of the Agricultural and
Mechanical Gazette, published by Neil Murray (47758 Hickory, Apt.
22305, Wixom, MI 43893 - a bit heavy on the 5-digit numbers, I'll
admit! :-) Neil gave us a mention in his April '91 issue - perhaps
some of our new subscribers found out about the group through this
tome! For only a few dollars a year, this enjoyable bimonthly pub
(possibly the most frequent in pipedom) offers a good list of pipe
club activities, shows and swap meets, and their unique "Dirigible
Pirates" serial, which is better read than described! Send Neil a
letter for all the facts.

Also, in the Spring 1991 issue of the Compleat Smoker, we learn of the
Pipe Collectors' International Convention and Pipe Show at the Crystal
Gateway Marriott, Arlington, VA. The show goes on from May 24-26.
Would go if I could, but my car has other plans - something to do with
its brakes :-( Hope this isn't too late to let some of you know!

Just returned from a trip to California, and was astonished by the
level of smoker-bashing there. The restaurants and hotels that permit
smoking are apparently required by law to display a fairly obnoxious
sign to the effect that if you patronize the place, you'll succumb
immediately to the effects of the evil weed. Personally, I'm no great
supporter of smoking in restaurants, but those bits of state-enforced
propaganda made me appreciate the relative freedom of NJ a little more
(than seemed possible :-) Wherever you are, I hope you'll continue to

			Smoke in peace,
			~\U Steve.
