“Nowhere in the world will such a brotherly feeling of confidence be experienced as amongst those who sit together smoking their pipes.”
– Doctor Barnstein, The Results and Merits of Tobacco, 1844

Welcome to the Pipeman’s Lodge, a blog on pipes, tobacco, books, music, and other topics of interest. I’m looking forward to chatting with you about all of these topics without the politics, partisanship, general nastiness, and ungentlemanly discourse that has become so sadly common these days. Let’s open the door, light up, and relax in the Pipeman’s Lodge!
