    If they were trying to make it in to the same place they came from, why did they actually end up fighting a war over not wanting it to be the same country they came from?

    Oh, and it wasn't a country when we got here.

    I hope some of that still exists, I have dreams of walking through a maze of Italian Pipe shops

    Well, that war was many years later, and it was no longer the same people. Those early colonials were all long dead by then. Also, things change and people get tired of the way things were and they try to make it better. You wouldn't know it by some of the posts in this thread, though.

    Yes there are some left, but nothing compare to when i was a kid or even a teenager,one thing that still resist are the grocery shops, the tourists love to came here and having italian food so in the tourist cities they survive, we have Mc. Donalds, Burger King etc.. and they are full but they are miles away from the quality you can have from these litte grocery shops.
    About the Pipe shops i think i've seen one in Florence a couple of years ago....

    Though they have their uses. I am glad I was a child before cell phones, home computers, and video games.

    That is a great start. I've been watching a lot of the earlier Who vids and it has given me a whole new appreciation for Keith and company. If you get a chance check out the 1970 Tanglewood concert. The boys were at the top of their game.

    Just so you know.....when I was 12 and worked for the farmer I made $2.00 an hour (cash). This was 1975. After a 41 hour week the man gave me $82. At the age of 12 I wasn't freaking out about that $12. I was freaking out thinking that in one week this man was going to hand me another $82. I think comic books were 45 cents then. I felt like the wolf of Wall street. I wanted to walk into our tiny farm town drug store and buy every comic book and every box of Cracker Jack that they had. Good stuff.

    :)

    Back in the 60's and 70's Italian Burl Pipes were all over and so were the shops (at least from what I have heard) The pipes are still for sale. The big names are still around like Savinelli, plus a bunch of Generic Italian pipes that could be made in China for all I know.

    Yes, i believe it's how you said, it's also true that 50-60 years ago the pipe smokers were a lot more than now i think, i don't remember when was last time i saw a man with a pipe, i've always had a sort of fascination to see somebody smoking a pipe.:):):)

    OK, but in the spirit of the OP, I'm sticking with Beatles, early 70s Dead and now, Aerobicise.

    I have been a cigar smoker for awhile now but in the last year I tried a Pipe just out of curiosity and fell in love with it. It's fits my personality perfect because there is so much ceremony to it, and learning and trying all the tobaccos is very interesting to me.

    My first pipe I bought because it looked like something a Boeing engineer would have smoked while looking over some technical documents back in the 50s.

    Yes that's right, it's the ceremony also that makes a pipe smokers very fascinating to me, in some way the cigar also but a lot less, cigarette smokers like me are only stupid because there is no ceremony at all and they are worse for your healt than cigars and pipes. :):):)
