  • @n9inchnails      Could be the invention of  Mr. Brocklebank and Sam. carried on the product. Or possibly a joint endeavour. Or even Sams. own invention. I have found Samuel Gawith two years earlier, on the 1851 Population Census living in Kendal, h…
  • I don't know what make of  jasmine snuff you chaps have been using, but I hope it is better than the Sam. Gawith Jasmine.    It smells like those perfume blocks you see in urinals. I still have my first and probably last tin of the stuff, taped up a…
  • @snuffisus I have only just read this post five years after you posted it.   @nicmiser drew my attention to your article.Lovely family history, and I am very intrigued to know if the recipes and technique will ever be published publicly by you. Hea…
  • @50ft_trad      Whose bedroom, and does the wife know? [-X
  • Hello to you  @basement_shaman                  It is quite clear in my original post  "Just a general country location would be enough.      No great detail needed." I value my privacy just as much as the next guy or girl. Cheers.
  • @Effy    Excellently demonstrated.       I thought along similar lines, but did not have the nous to put the idea into words.    
  • @Chico       It was a classified secret until now.  There are two Americas on the map so as to confuse  Kim Jong-un when he tries to fire his missiles at the USA.
  • I just took another look at the map.It zooms right in to the individual house.    Not a very good thing if you happen to mention in a post that you will be away from home, on holiday or business etc. for a couple of weeks.Burglar Bill would have a f…
  • @nicmizer   I like the map,   I didn't know about that until you put the link up.Easier to see location if I click on  nicmizer , providing you had filled in your location on the profile. Just the country would be fine in the likes of a small place …
  • I have jus been window shopping at the Wilsons of Sharrow website.They sell tonquin beans   25g for 1.99 UK pounds.    That is less than half the price that I saw them on a web based, food herb shop. An interesting article that I read about the bean…
  • @Justin The original Blackadder sketch used Oxford, Cambridge and Hull as three centres of excellence. I substituted Widnes for Hull.     Anyone that knows Widnes would understand why. I hope you are familiar with the original sketch because it d…
  • I would have thought that one of you would have spotted my error on 4th April. Oxford is a complete dump. Borrowed from Black Adder goes Forth.
  • Whilst standing in the ticket queue at the local swimming baths, I started reading the notices  to pass the time away.According to one notice, to stop people urinating in the baths some clever chemicals have been added to the water.   Apparently whe…
  • Instead of a snuff discount,   what about an occasional  small percentage off the post and packaging? That way everybody gets a good deal no matter what their tastes are. Edit. I have only just noticed the post by dan11 .    I would not be too gr…
  • If you look on Wikipedia there is an article mentioning this riot under the heading of   "Five Days of Milan."There is also an entry for a comedy film with a similar name.   Ignore that.I cannot explain it better than the Wikipedia article, but in a…
  • An evergreen favourite of mine is WHOSE   ROUND   IS   IT  ?
  • I have just looked a bit further into the subject.    Wikipedia has a quite complex article on these tobacco riots.  Rather than spend a couple hours of typing the information for you, I suggest that anyone showing an interest has a look under   B…
  • @_A_   You just reminded me of one that I have used when people are spelling words aloud when filling in crossword puzzles. "   The P is silent,  as in jakuzzi.  "                    
  • Under the title of Wos Best Dark; a rapee snuff?            (rappee was spelt using a single p, just in case the search engine has problems with rappee.)  HR_puffnsnuff   in July 2014   tells us that   Bob Gregory from the factory told him that Bla…
  • @snuffvillain   not sure about being a guerrilla fighter as I have a fur allergy.
  • Black Rappee, excellent snuff.      One of my favourites,  but I never use it outdoors.  Your nostrils look like a chimney sweeps when using it. The other dark favourite of mine is S.Gawiths London Brown, I believe now discontinued, but I have six…
  • @snuffmiller             I would rather remember bottles of Kronenbourg 1664.1667 was a good year though for the Dutch and British.  Old allegiances die hard. Edit. I think    " alliances "  might have been a better choice of word. Cheers.

  • @n9inchnails     Exactly.  The original misspelling had the  s at the end and I missed it out on the original post.  I should have typed in resistants   just like the original in The Terms of Service.I told you my English is rubbish.It is a good job…
  • @Hitsuzen    @Nicmizer This is not a pop at the author. "Snuffhouse membership is limited to resistants aged 18 or over."     This was the first line of the new terms and conditions, before being amended. When I typed it in just now    resistants …
  • Hello @Hitsuzen   I was thinking of investing in an American Dictionary,  you have just saved me a couple of pounds.   You can tell how bored a chap is when he starts reading the terms of service and the small print.Cheers.
  • @50ft_trad   I remember a few years ago BBC Radio Four offering to send out information packs to would-be writers of short, twenty minute to half hour plays. Apparently they detailed how to lay out your play and set about planning it as well as writ…
  • Just in case you are still unsure about the powers of TOP MILL another advert from  1903............................................................ TOP MILL SNUFF  is Tobacco in its most convenient and beneficent form. This pungent and titillating …
  • From an advert in 1933..................................................................Avoid  HAY-FEVER !A pinch of snuff is a sure preventative !     At the first sign of a sniff when your head aches- or you feel heavy and listless-take a pinch of…
  • UK members of a certain age will remember the  "St Trinians " films.   A girls boarding school, run by dubious teachers, with equally dubious pupils.  I think it was Dora Bryan (one of the teachers)  talking about teaching the girls the three  r's, …
  • @Hitsuzen   A few carrots, salad and such but definitely nothing sniffable or smokeable.
