Well, it is a rainy day, got some scotches with me. Sitting in front of my laptop and wait
for players to join my TBFW game while i write this thread. I saw it in the "Loung" (like
this "Pub"; means: off-topic (sub)forum) of a forum i use. A single thread for chit-chat,
just going and going. Sometimes slow, sometimes fast. Since we are more or less
shattered around the globe and living in different time-zones, we may can expect new
posts around the clock sometimes. I am curious. Here we go !!! I am here and refresh
every few minutes, so drop me something.

  • Sounds good to me. Another forum which commands most of my online time has a couple of similar threads with free flowing chatter about anything and everything (within forum terms of conduct of course). It's been a great thread for just letting your hair down and getting to know the other forumites better. "Conversations" tend to last no more than 4 or 5 posts, and many posts are just random off the cuff comments or random thoughts, but it can be a very amusing and enlightening thread at times
  • @50ft_trad Hey there, that is absoluty what my aim was. From which part of the world do you come ?
  • I've lived within 30-40 minutes drive of WoS all my life, and until I first tried snuff in April (?) this year I never even knew they existed #-o I obviously knew there was plenty of history of steel, knife/tool making, and heavy industry around Sheffield, but the tobacco industry took the best part of 40 years to appear on my radar
  • WOW!! What a start for this thread!! I am glad that you found your way to snuff. England is a good place for lovers of traditional tobacco products (imho). I just did relocate to the northern part of Germany and was about to order some chew from Kendal.
  • Relocate from where?

    SG is probably my favourite mill at the moment, with WoS and GH coming in a joint second, so I can understand your yearning for the Kendal ;) In fairness I am still finding my feet with many of the snuffs that all the mills have to offer :)

    WoS do however get bonus points for being local (to me), having a 300 year old mill (world's oldest snuff mill) with still functioning waterwheel, and being on the Porter Brook a way downstream from Shepherd Wheel (cutlery workshop) which has been there since the 1500s and was a place I was taken several times as a child :D
  • I did live for around 12 years in Trier (oldest city in Germany) and was for 6 months in Berlin now but i did start to hate living there and so i did relocate to Ostfriesland (near the sea), where my fiance and her family lives.

    I like all the mills you named. SG is my favorite too (for a long time now, they have so many ones i like). For another english miller: what do you think of F&T ? Imho the HDT they offer is the best one on the whole market.

    F&T for me is an occasional pinch of Bordeaux or Macouba. One of the reasons SG is a favourite is the coarser grinds. I'm not one for toasts :-S

    This is becoming the 50ft and Prismaster show :P we need to get some of the others joining in now ;)

    Have we got any musicians here?

    @Firestarter0 Hey there !!! What kind of music you play ?
  • Hey, a "spam thread" for snuffhouse. Great idea! Every forum should have one of these.
  • Spam thread? You selling Viagra? I'm not snuffing that again! Being British my upper lip is stiff enough as it is :P

    I dont need it either besides i hear it is not too good for your health. Even worse, copies made in China. Not funny at all.

    Hey, a "spam thread" for snuffhouse. Great idea! Every forum should have one of these.
    It is not a "spam thread", it is a "hang out - thread".

    Spam , Now I am hungry
    My knowledge is worthless if not shared and applied . "Joseph McKenna"  
  • Just tucking into fishcake, chips and a spring roll here =P~ =P~ =P~
  • Think I will make some taco's

  • Ah... i have to wait 2 hrs more until proper evening meal.
  • 12.22 here and the meat is just about done, just have to dice the onions and heat up the shells

  • 18:29: Meal already cooked yesterday for birthday party. Leftovers still more then fine and looking forward to it. Cannot describe it properly in englisch since i lack the kitchen vocabulary.
  • @Prismaster This thread is an excellent idea. I decided I needed a break from work so checked in here and found this thread. I have unfortunately spent most of the day doing very detailed accounting / legal stuff with more to do later so I needed a break and am now deciding what snuff to pinch.

    Since we are sharing basic info I am based just outside London in the UK so that is my timezone although I can frequently be found lurking here in the middle of the night.

    Funnily enough my girlfriend will be out in Berlin next January and suggested that I should come and join her for a long weekend. She knows her way round Berlin but any suggestions from a one time local as to sights, bars, restaurants and tobacco vendors would be handy.
  • i just got back from a successful job interview, just doing stock, but its my first 'proper' fixed job. hopefully it will smooth out my income (actually give me some haha). ill see how it affects my timings, but im usually found on here late night too. not sure what my meal will be, could be anything, depends what the bloody people im living with have thrown out the fridge thats mine. hopefully ill have pizza or something.
  • Congratulations on the new job mate <:-P :-bd
  • @Firestarter0 My congratulations as well and good luck with that.

    Having had a quick tidy of my desk I finally found my Whisky & Honey and have just had a few good pinches of that while I wind down for a little while. I really did not like that snuff when I first got it but it has grown and grown on me. I generally use coarser snuffs but happily I have no problem with the Whisky & Honey or with Field of Junipers.

    Snuff and coffee to drink - splendid. Hopefully this time tomorrow it will be snuff and beer!!!

    Cheers- i can see this thread will bring me to the forum more, im starting to think a members only chat might be a good thing. like an online chat room with a password that can be found in a private members only thread here.

    as for the job, i celebrated with a 'penicillin' cocktail (auchentoshan, laphoaig, lemon and cinnamon) and a double Oban scoth in my favourite York bar. im enjoying a cup of Chai tea now ( im loading up on cinnamon and whiskey for my cold)
  • @Firestarter0 Yeah, congratulations for that. I am actually on a job hunt too, since i relocated here a few days ago (see earlier posts). I wish you a successful time with it !

    @chris Thanks for support of the idea. About going to Berlin, you should do so since for a vacation trip it is awesome. I was troubled by living there for a long period of time but to go their as a tourist can be really good. The whole city is packed with old stuff and stunning buildings of age. Besides this, it is multiculture overkill, as you will see. ;-) Many good tobacco stores can be found with nice ambient, sorry i cannot name any. Where you should go depends on the person you are, for some wild times go down to Kreuzberg or Friedrichshain. Try for example this: you the ring train (Ringbahn S41 or S42) and go to Ostkreuz. Just get out there. You will find a park with plays and stuff, dozens of dozens of snack shops of any kind. Bars, clubs, restaurants of all kinds and mostly A LOT of mostly friendly and harmless people. You can just have a good time there with your girl and meet crazy guys n gals. I bet on it.

    Yeah, that effect is what i meant and why i got the idea of such a chat again. Anyway, it seems this thread is a good alternative
    for the time being.

  • @Firestarter0 best of luck with your new job .I hope you love your work. Nothing worse than going to a job you hate. I know your young so I will offer a suggestion. Put some Silver & Gold away for your old age.You know how tough it is to live on nothing .

  • Personally I see threads like this as a much better alternative. Easier to catch up on if you've been absent a while :)
  • @Prismaster Thanks for the info re Berlin. The tobacco stores sound good although my girlfriend does not share that interest. We could probably both do with a wild night out but we have both cut right back on our drinking so I don't know how wild that will be. But the plays and restaurants sound good.
