Hello sisters and brothers of pipe.

Finally it has arrived. From Saint Genis des Fontaines, Languedoc-Rousillon (a splendid place with superb wines, btw), a long journey behind, after 3 weeks travelling with different logistics, it has arrived to Berlin. Packaged with lot of love, the pipe represent the best of what the homo sapiens have been done on his history: A pipe made in Cherrywood.
The begin of a new era for all pipesmokers in this planet. The founder had a name: Eugène-Léon Ropp (1830-1907). R.i.p. my friend. Long life the Cherrywood.

Viva la France!!!
Viva la Liberté, Égalité et Fratenité!

He was brilliant. And I’m very happy with that.

Haha.

Peace and love from Berlin for now. P

Dunhill Shell Briar 5108 Bent Rhodesian Pipe, made in England 2001

This morning, I’m smoking the Ferrari Testarossa under my pipes. This pipe was my birthday gift of 2015 and was buyed as new, by a friend of mine, Simone, from his shop in Rimini, Italy. I’m very impressed because the sandlast of this Dunhill pipe is very unusual. The pipe is not marked as “Ring Grain”, which you can appreciate here and here. Anyway, made in 2001 as Shell Briar, very unusual.
The first time I smoked this pipe, was in a meeting with other pipe brothers in Hamburg, with some McClelland Christmas Cheer 2014. It was broked with a Virginia de luxe, so, I still smoke this sporty smoking machine only with Virginia. I this case some McClelland Bulk: 2010 – Classic Virginia.

Well, have a look to this pictures to make you an idea how lucky I am. From Berlin with love, p

Freddie Mercury is still alive. Happy 69th Birthday!

He was my first love. It was a kind of magic. For those who never heard about, please have a look here http://www.freddiemercury.com/institutional and here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Mercury

This smoke is dedicated to him. A Falcon pipe, made in Englang with a Meerschaum head, to give the propper meaning, a bit oriental, like Freddie.

The chosen tobacco is the Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture.

And now, I’m listening the song Radio GaGa, one of the most important song in my life from 1985, live in Wembley (London)

Have fun and sing louder then you can!

Here the lyrics ( http://www.queenwords.com/lyrics/songs/sng19_03.shtml)

I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds – invaded by Mars
You made ’em laugh – you made ’em cry
You made us feel like we could fly
Radio

So don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows – we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
How music changes through the years

Let’s hope you never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around ‘cos we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Someone still loves you

Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)

You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio
