I just smoked a pipe with a local blend of rope tobacco, known as "Wakefield Blend".

Yuck. Much harsher than I was expecting. I need to get some Cherry tobacco again. XP

[ profile] jennavixen spotted this today whilst we were at a tobacconist in Leeds (we went to get some Djarum cigarettes). Apologies for the poor quality photos; I took them on my phone's camera.

And here's the inside with some Djarum Cherry cigs in.

First impressions are that this is the sturdiest cigarette case that I've ever used. It's nice and solid with a strong lock.

Although I don't smoke pre-made cigarettes much it's still a nice find, especially at £5. :)

Good Days

That picture was taken at an LF meet over three years ago. That was a good day.

I miss my mullet.

Just a self reference post here. All of my metal notes will be under the tag of the same name.

Whilst in Portland, visit 82nd Ave Tobacco & Pipe Ltd.

I was happy up until about 10 minutes ago. Time for my nicotine fix, methinks.

Sorry for making another LJ post but I've just though of something whilst I was having a fag.

When the UK Smoking Ban (Health Act 2006) kicks in in July there is going to be an increase in litter.

People who choose to smoke will not stop simply because they are banned from smoking indoors (pubs, clubs, indoor smoking areas), they will instead just go outside to smoke. We know this and the government knows this. The number of dropped cigarette ends will increase exponentially as a result.

Part of me thinks that this has been taken into consideration all along as dropping litter in most places carries a fine, where I live it's a £50 spot fine from dropping a cigarette butt.

Of course, if councils were to increase the number of litter bins within cities and place them at appropriate locations (outside of pubs, clubs, etc), then there wouldn't be a problem. However we all know that most councils won't bother.

I'm pretty sure the smoking ban was just a typical knee-jerk reaction anyway, which is becoming typical with this Labour government. Perhaps if everyone (politians and the common people) were a little more objective and stopped trying to force things through quickly then this country would be a better place.

EDIT: Just to make this clear to everyone, this is my own opinion and I'm not going to think any less of you for voicing yours in a comment. :)
