New and I am enjoying some Samuel Gawith Golden Glow . Initial thoughts are that it is not as good as the Guilty Pleasure but a few smokes will be needed. New pipe gets a lot hotter on the bowl than expected. Either way, a nice way to enjoy the last of the days sun rays.

Several US tech companies (including Google and Facebook) either currently or previously have sponsored schemes to have their websites zero-rated for mobile data customers in developing countries with high numbers of new internet users. Obvious ulterior motives, obvious effects

After a patient while of trying both my Ashton guilty pleasure and Germains in my , I feel confident in saying that the former is a better smoke. It smells beautiful and seems to light with ease. I think going for a pipe was a great move by myself in general though, it's pleasurable and makes sitting in my garden so much more enjoyable. There is no point to this post. Picture is a lovely cheddar, tomato and lettuce with mustard which combos quite well.

I was originally, ages ago, going to document what I smoked and post it here for absolutely no one to read so I could remember which ones I had etc. However I stopped smoking them for a bit. I have however got my first and just smoked some lovely Ashton "Guilty Pleasure". Mild and aromatic. Look at my tiny little corn cob pipe! In hindsight I should have gotten a bigger pipe due to the difficulties of using a smaller one but oh well.

the mastodon highlights post reflects something i've noticed about my own popular posts: the best way to get mastodon people to boost you is to post about how you hate computers because they suck

Screw it, I'm posting every new I try from now on. Had a cheap cheap Royal Dutch Panatella, very cheap and not any immediate notes to it bar a wood taste.

cooking 

Obligatory and post. Sweet and Baking potato. Chop into chunks. Enjoy whiskey (important). Boil until soft. Mix with cornflour. Roast in garlic seasoned olive-oil @ 200 until beautiful crisp texture. Finish off with some cracked black pepper and serve with an overcooked sausage square. Rustic, simple.
