What is a PC CC (not referring to size)? Post or Pre Castro? Sorry for the dumb question.


Not sure...can you provide the context?

BTW: whenever you post here, it tops the thread. You have to then top the "Newbies Info: Read" thread. This keeps the two information threads paired up, providing ease of access to newcomers.

Now they do.

Been on the "briars and stogies" site scoring two pounds of pipe baccy, pipe and accessories at a steal, especially after they messed up, sent me a big can of Velvet by accident and then "donated it". Maybe sending it along to OpFTH, or at least a couple of baggies

Now they've created a Pipe category, so I don't even have to search for auctions on this devil site anymore. Goodbye discretionary income.

Grumble grumble, somebody posted about the mythical membership and vets in the other thread and now the count is way off, plus they didn't cut and paste the info into post #1451. I got work to do (real work) then work here before my OCD crushes me.
