I must say, that with all the snow afalling, I feel the right and
proper Gentle-Hobbit, what with getting this most enjoyable
newsletter.  Reading is a delight, and watching the snow flakes lazily
drift, my thoughts turned to an interesting matter: What would be a
good choice for and outdoor, or porch fill while the snow falls?  With
the wood-burning scent of fireplaces, and the coolness of the flakes,
a nice churchwarden, some sweetrolls, a fine red, and some deer
grazing make perfect compliments like and unto themselves and each
other; yet what would be a good fill for such a day as one which
inspired Robert Frost?

[ Perhaps some Balkan Sobranie, or Rattray's Accountant's Mixture? -S. ]

THANKS FOR THE PROMPT RESPONSE. I WOULD APPRECIATE SUGGESTIONS FROM YOU OR THE
MEMBERS OF THE MAILGROUP HOW TO SELL THESE FINE PIPES. I HAVE NO WAY OF
ESTIMATING THEIR VALUE. FIRST I HAVE TO CREATE AN ACCURATE DESCRIPTION. ASIDE
FROM DUNHILL, THERE ARE ONLY TWO PIPE SHOPS LEFT IN SAN FRANCISCO, AND THEY DO
NOT HANDLE CONSIGNMENTS. WHAT REFERENCE WORK SHOULD I CONSULT IN ORDER TO
DESCRIBE THE PIPES? THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE.

[ I've pointed Oliver toward the Bay Area Pipe Club and Hacker's and
Ehwa's books, and invited him to advertise in this group. Any other
ideas? -S. ]

In the past few years (decades), more and more concern has been given to the
dangerous effects of pesticides in our food.  I was wondering if anyone has
given thought or perhaps grown their own pipe tobacco amongst the members.
I understand that tobacco is a relatively difficult and specialized crop to
grow, and was interested in hearing if any of you have tried it in your
personal gardens at home.  If so, how did your effort turn out?  And, how
did you feel the overall quality was?

    Thanks for signing me up so quickly. I'm new to the net, so
please let me know if I'm addressing my messages wrong, or if I'm
violating network etiquette.

    I'm 40 years old and a father of three boys. I am a supervisor
at a local (El Paso, Tx) oil refinery, and before that I was a
Sgt. with the local Police Department. My wife and I joined the
Police Department at the same time, and she is still with them
(going on 18 years).

    I only recently took up pipe smoking, at my doctors
suggestion. I was a 3 pack a day cigarette smoker before that.
Needless to say, I am glad I switched. I also enjoy a cigar from
time to time.

    I'm starting to collect pipes, and am currently up to 25
medium grade pipes. I have one Dunhill, but on the average I
purchase something in the 50 to 100 dollar range. So far I seem to
prefer Stanwells, Charatens, and Nordings.

    The estate pipe market is something that I would like to get
into, but I currently have no contacts. We only have one pipe store
in town, and they don't have a very interesting collection.

    Whenever I travel, the first place I visit is the local
tobbaconists. My favorites so far have been Stag Tobaconists and
Ford&Haig Tobacconists in Phoenix, and R.J. Clarke in Vancouver,
B.C.

    I will be going to Birmingham and Montgomery Alabama, and
Atlanta Georgia next month, and would appreciate any advise on
where I could find a good tobacconist there.

    I am also interested in buying any issues of Pipe Lovers
Magazine. I've never seen one, and would like to read any old
issues. It seems that not much is written anymore about pipe
smoking and collecting.

                                    Jon
                                     
[ Hope some of our members can help you with Birmingham and Atlanta,
Jon! And welcome to the group. -S. ]
