  • @art47       mentioned  "the plastic half"    . Three times this week I have seen articles on the TV news about  Plastic Bergs, massive floating rafts of tons of  plastic in the oceans, and plastic in general killing wildlife and polluting the land,…
  • @nineinchnails     I read somewhere,  Australia had a huge tobacco growing industry at one time.  May have been around the 1920s .      Shame they killed it off,  as the revenues raised these days could have been put to loads of good causes.Unfortun…
  • The first of June is here.   I still cannot get a rotated picture to stay rotated when I post it. Enjoy National Snuff Fortnight everyone.
  • @volunge     I thought that Mrs Pipelet was Rowan Atkinsons sister. On a serious note,  it is no wonder Frenchmen drink so much wine if this is what the women look like in naughty French postcards. @tboyer   An excellent find.   Keep up the good …
  • @volunge a mate of mine needs an apron whilst dining out.   I don't think he owns a tie that hasn't got mustard, ketchup, gravy or egg stains on.  If you took one of his ties and placed it in a cup of boiling water, you would have an instant cup of …
  • @bob    Good thinking.  I never thought of that.   If I worked in a snuff shop, swapping pinches with customers, and sampling the stock all day, I think that my shirt front would look like an explosion in a cocoa factory.
  • I have my doubts as to whether or not the chap at the beginning of this film actually consumes snuff. When his fingers come out of the snuffbox there is no sign of snuff on them.  Then he goes through a very showy routine of shaking excess back into…
  • I would have thought that it would be much more healthier to ban spitting and using chewing gum in the parks.It costs a fortune to remove gum from the footpaths, and tobacco spit is just plain unsightly. What about all of the insecticides and weedk…
  • In many English parks there seems to be a big problem with cannabis users.   You often see neat little signs on the lawns reading,         "Please Keep Off The Grass."  To be legal,   shouldn't  that tin on the notice have a Government Health Wa…
  • Ten pounds is a definite bargain.   I have seen these with starting prices at around fifty pounds.F&T and G.Smith have more of a nostalgia to the likes of us snuffers.  I have seen them sold and stamped with the name of one of the top London sto…
  • @BillSykes I have looked at quite a few of these on ebay. You can also find G.Smith,  Cardinal Snuff boxes made by the same box maker. What I like about them is the lid construction.      On the box in the video the lid flange fits inside the box.  …
  • @volunge    Thank you for that.     I searched high and low, but could not find it on my own.Your link works fine and I have book marked it now for the future.I was quite tickled by the sniffs he puts in during the quiet intervals of the song. Cheer…
  • If you don't like my snuff,    you can shove it up your nose!     >:P
  • "How do you make quality snuff? I think it helps to not live in the UK or Australia.    Getting hold of raw leaf tobacco is virtually impossible now for amateurs in the UK.   You can buy seed here in the UK to grow your own leaf, but I think you run…
  • @Dyson_nose   Shame you lost the auction, and an even bigger shame that neither of us are in the money                                 bracket to buy it.  
  • @SmokeOnTheWater  I am not sure about  Flue-cured, but  Perique is definitetly fermented in barrels.  I have used a fair old bit of Perique for my snuff blending in the past. I will have to give it a bit more thought before I abandon it completely.
  • I have just looked up TSNA and it would seem @volunge is correct. I have been grinding down small amounts  pipe tobacco to flavour Viking Brown. It looks like Perique, to me a fermented tobacco, will be off my shopping list, and air dried Latakia wi…
  • It depends upon which part of his anatomy you scratch.
  • I think that the idea of postage stamp sized samples of snuff,  is not to be sniffed at. :))
  • The first lawnmower of spring.
  • @SunnyDay        Have I missed something?     Possibly you have posted this in the wrong place.                               I am   confused.                               Don't forget that this  site cuts off your text if you use unusual character…
  • Sorry about that.  The link that I put in the original article seems to have vanished. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rare-Collectable-Smiths-Golden-Cardinal-Snuff/112851106787?hash=item1a46733be3:g:np0AAOSwVqlaS79P Try the above link.
  • Camphorated oil was rubbed on my chest scores of times when I was a youngster.  It was an old and well established medication for chest complaints and colds.   My grandmother lived until she was nearly 100 and she swore by the stuff.     I think the…
  • @frandelrio I think that the UK Post office require 28 days to elapse after posting a parcel before they will accept a lost item report.  It gives it a fair chance to turn up after any unforeseen delays. The P.O. only accept orders to chase up a mis…
  • An excellent piece of advice from an old time Yorkshire comedian named Sandy Powell.                      "Never blow down your sherbet dab."
  • A chap got in late from the pub one night. When he got home his wife kicked off, going on and on about his drunken habits and seedy friends. She would not stop and finally he flipped, grabbed the carving knife and stabbed her to death. Now he had a …
  • @volunge    I had a nice time myself on the site, going down memory lane. I should have stashed away a lot more before the changes came and snuffs started to vanish off the market. Look on the bright side,      we were there when the good times exis…
  • I recently found the site myself by accident, and had vague memories about your posts here.Is this a dead internet shop?      Does anyone know for sure? http://snuffstore.com/mobile/catalog_mb.php Even if it is dead, it is nice to look back at what …
  • @DrOctagon     Some tins that go HSSSST also go rusty inside, even if unopened.   Search this site for long term  storage etc..
