Subject: Smoking article

Steve,

I would like you to email me a copy of your article on pipe smokers being
healthier than non-pipe smokers.  I just want to know for my own benifit.
I don't get on the soap box one way or the other on this issue.  I do
believe that secondary smoke is probably harmful to others (as well as myself)
and therefore choose not to smoke indoors (especially in my house with my
kids around).  At home, I usually reserve my smoking for the garage 
(actually a wood shop, a car has never lived there since I bought the house).
Commute times are my other most enjoyable smoking time.  I just wish I could
offer some same sort of environment control on other forms of air pollution
such as car exhaust.  Wouldn't it be nice if we could limit the exhaust to
the confines of the street?  Anyway,  send the article along if you will.

I hope the dissertation and all your fun are going well.  I fear for the
day when you will have to join the rest of us.

Norm

[ Thanks for the note, Norm, and 'scuze me if I've been getting a bit
too soapboxy lately. We pipe smokers should demonstrate that we are
considerate as we enjoy, and you do that amply well. Degree's going
fine; expect to defend in April. -S. ]

Hello to all members of the pipes mailgroup !

Since I am new to this mailgroup, I will give you some information
about me and my interests in pipes and pipe smoking.

I Ave read about the Internet pipes mailgroup in the Pipe SmokerAs
Ephemeris, which I ordered after the reading of Rich Hackers excellent
"Ultimate Pipe Book". I am a graduate student at the Institute of
Theoretical Chemistry of the University of Tuebingen in Germany. In
our group, we are interested in the interactions of proteins with
water, and especially, the protein folding process.

I am a pipe smoker since I finished school, about ten years ago. I own
about 30 pipes of different manufacturers (Stanwell, Savinelli,
Brebbia, Peterson, Dunhill, ...). My favorite tobaccos are: Dunhill My
Mixture 965, CrownAs Achievement and Balkan Sobranie Smoking Mixture,
but because my wife doesnAt like their strong smell, I smoke LarsenAs
Premium pipe tobacco at home, and I am always looking for an english
mixture with a danish smell (suggestions are welcome !).

In recent years, I started to build a small collection of books about
pipe smoking, tobacco and related themes. Up to now I have only german
books, but I have contacted Ben Rapaport (Antiquarian Tobacciana) to
complete my collection with foreign language books.

I am also a member of the local pipe smokers club, the "Stuttgarter
Pfeifenfreunde B79". Our meetings take place every second friday in
the month.  If someone wants to join our meetings, feel free to
contact me.

ItBs an exciting experience to communicate with pipe smokers all over
the world. Please let me know, if somebody is more interested in
whatBs going on in the pipe smoking area in Germany.

Keep on smoking !

Cheerio Thomas.

[ Sounds great, Thomas! Hope some of our European and other members
will look up the Stuttgarter Pfeifenfreunde B79 (is that '79?) when in
the area.  -S. ]

Subject: Dr. Grabow and Medico Pipes

One frequent question which I noticed in the Internet pipes mailgroup
postings has to do with Dr. Grabow pipes.  Now, this may come as a shock to
those who only buy Savenilli Signatures, but Medico and Grabow do sell a
fairly decent pipe.  I know, you are thinking to yourself, "Oh no, I just
blew a $1000 note and I could have bought a Medico and a new used car."  If
one shops selectively, there are good quality Medico and Grabow pipes which
if properly broken in will taste just as good as a pipe made in Italy,
France, England, or Denmark.  I have a variety of moderately expensive pipes
in my collection, nothing outrageous, but fair stuff, and I still think that
one of the best pipes that I used to own was a filtered Medico which I had
while i was in the Air Force.  A college student or person in the service
should not waste their limited funds on a questionably expensive pipe.
Another alternative is Wiley Pipes of Florida, they make a good pipe for a
reasonable price.  All for now, i got to go,
       Neil

[ I found this on the Briar Patch BBS (313-340-0814), and copied it
here, given the interest people have in Dr. Grabows. -S. ]
