    MacB HH Bold Kentucky (fresh - thanks, Simon)) in a 50's Stanwell.

    Although this blend now has a dedicated Orlik, I'm happy to smoke it in other non-dedicated pipes and I thought it might do well in this.

    EDIT - Love at first light!!

    Late checking in today due to another early rise before spending eight hours in the countryside with the builders. -3c this morning and the first real frost I've seen this winter....perishing it was. Sayri twist was an ideal smoke along with the trusty Falcon....a great pipe when 'roughing it'.

    Once upon a time, the NHS and a Japanese company decided to have a competitive boat race on the river Thames.
    Both teams practiced long and hard to reach their peak performance.
    On the big day, they were as ready as they could be.
    The Japanese won by a mile!

    Afterwards the NHS team became very discouraged by the loss and morale sagged. Senior management decided that the reason for the crushing defeat had to be found, and a project team was set up to investigate the problem and recommend appropriate action.

    Their conclusion: The problem was that the Japanese had eight people rowing, and one person steering. The NHS had one person rowing and eight people steering.

    Senior management immediately hired a consultancy company to do a study on the team structure. Millions of pounds and several months later the consultancy company concluded that: Too many people were steering and not enough rowing.

    To prevent losing to the Japanese again next year, the team structure was changed to 'four steering managers, three senior steering managers and one executive steering manager'.
    A new quality performance system was set up for the person rowing the boat to give more incentive to work harder and become a key performer.

    "We must give him empowerment and enrichment, that ought to do it".

    The next year, the Japanese won by TWO miles!

    The NHS laid off the rower for poor performance, sold all the paddles and cancelled all the capital investment for new equipment.

    They halted the development of a new boat, awarded high performance awards to the consultants and distributed the money saved to senior management.

    After all of the statistics and reports are finished with, I've come to the conclusion that the only real danger of smoking a pipe is being interrupted.

    Good Evening, Gentlemen! The latest storm front is bringing in some cooler weather at last and it will be gratefully welcomed. I did what I could on the electrical project earlier this afternoon and the end is in sight (v.2). Time to read the headlines and the science news. Now smoking a bowl of fresh BBF in the Sav rusticated billiard, one last coffee for the day on the side.
