I have a rather expensive tobacco pipe made of root briar. The outside
of the bowl has accumulated some grime, due to tobacco and finger oils.
The grain is impecable and even has somee birdseye on the bottom of the
bowl. How do I clean this wood without harming it's smokeability?
Please answer by email.

"Please answer by email." Right-o, you lazy, self-important doo-doo
head. You want the answer, come here.
4-0 steel wool. Maybe a little lemon oil.
And no, I won't mail you any steel wool, either. You'll have to take
your lazy ass, your stupid email address, and your idiotic screen name
over to the hardware store your lazy-assed self.
Oh, I forgot to say "Have a nice day." Where _have_ my manners gone?
You must really hate this guy, Lemon oil on a pipe
Any thing you put on the bowl or in the bowl will change the taste of the
smoke, lemon is bitter and you bites you don't want that. Use alcohol
(grain) and steel wool to clean the outside, ream the inside clean (down to
the briar if needed) and coat with alcohol (grain) and honey mixture, char
the inside of the bowl. To finish the outside of the bowl use beeswax rubbed
in to the bowl. This is how I restore most of mine when they need it. And
why is this guy asking here anyway he should go to a pipesmokers group.

This is the newest virus/worm. Symantec has posted a new definition
file to catch and delete it. I suspect that there are some out there
who have not patched their MS OS to plug the hole in Internet Explorer.
_All_ are either infected or have been cleaned. Microsoft does not
email patches. Depending on what you've signed up for you may get an
email directing you to a web site, but they don't distribute patches via
download all patches directly from microsoft. I wouldn't even click on
a link in a message I received; just type in microsoft.com in a web
browser and click to the patches yourself, if you're not using the
Someone is harvesting addrs from the NGs & flooding their emails with
them. This is the 3rd NG I frequent where its been mentioned. I've
gotten just over 300 so far since yesterday.

I'm at zero. That's one of advantages to never putting your

Then they get my junk email address.
You really can keep the amount of spam and other crap you
get in your email down with a little effort.
My ISP is good at stopping the latest viruses and worms, one
of the few things they are good at.
Not passing your email address around on USENET everytime
you post does cut way down on the crap, but of course you
are free to leave you email address on the shit house wall
or where ever else you try to get your dates.
Sarcasm meter on the blink again Rico?
I thought about why I use my real name and e-mail address in light of
all the harvesting and virii and such. While I have decided to change
my posting e-mail address, I still leave instructions for those who wish
to e-mail me off list.
And, I use my real name because I believe when you are speaking with
someone, you look them square in the eye and respect them enough to use
your real name.
You don't use your real name, don't make reference to a correct e-mail
address, and don't allow your posts to be archived by Google. Guess I
have my explanation for your crass response.
Thicken up your skin son, and relax a little.
