Things are going pretty well... First, I got a letter to the editor
published in the Hunterdon County Democrat, about public smoking bans
and the First Amendment right to peaceful assembly for legal
purposes. Next time you see yourself getting bashed in the media, take
arms against the sea of troubles! (But, dhang, I wish there was some
real leadership in the smokers' rights movement that I respected...)

Second, just put down earnest money on a house in Kingston. It has
ample deck space, so that I can smoke my 8-5-8s (thanks, Kam!) without
bothering the sweetie. :-) Wish us luck!

So, looking forward to a new home and a more tolerant America, let's
lean back, light up, and lighten up as we discuss stagecraft,
lighting, and Cole's Law...

Subject: Introduction.

Well, looks like you beat me to the punch.  I've received my first pipes 
digest and haven't sent in an intro yet. Here goes...

I'm a project engineer with Iwerks Entertainment, a large-format and 
specialty theatre systems company and I enjoy both pipes and cigars.  I 
have been smoking a pipe for about a year or so now - my cigar-smoking 
friends and I decided it was somehow less offensive - but am still getting
the hang of it.  I can't help but feel I'm commiting some major rookie 
moves now and then and am extremely reticent to pack it in public - so 
any basic advice you can offer would be appreciated.

Light _is_ bad for cigars, which is why they're boxed. ;)  A cigar store
will have one open box of every brand for the person who wants to buy
individual cigars, but humidors should not let light in, unless you only
keep boxes of cigars in it.

Subject: Re: pipes list

Thank You for adding me to your list. My name is Adam Bourque I'm a 
college student in Ann Arbor Michigan. I discovered the calming and 
relaxing properties of pipe smoking during a stressful period in my life 
and continue to enjoy it. I find that my pipe can act as a distraction 
(?) or such that helps me think. Next digest I will add an address to 
your resource list, currently I do not have the address nor the price 
range. The old addage is true.  "The wise man uses a pipe to think, the 
fool as something to stick in his mouth!"

[ I'm sure we've all used it for both purposes :-) -S. ]

Subject: Comoy or Peterson - I'm a novice.

     I needed a little pipes advice.  I have your FAQ/Starter guide, but I 
needed a little something extra.  I originally joined your list for cigar 
smoking chat, but I find myself wanting to try a pipe (while it's still 
legal :-).  I have ordered a catalog from a pipe company in Chicago (Iwan 
Ries and Co.) and noticed they have Chacom pipes by Camoy for about $23.00.  
I also noticed a Peterson "second" in a pipe shop for $25.00.  Which do you 
think would be the better pipe?  I really don't want to jump in with both 
feet (and wallet) and find that I don't enjoy it.  What do you think?


[ My bias is for Petersons -- easier maintenance and much more
durable. Second, schmecond -- a pipe with a couple of fills, may not
look as nice, but will still smoke fine. Welcome! -S. ]

I just thought I'd remind everybody to be careful of
those unexpected "gift" cigars today.
