    Al Fakher Cherry! Smell/Flavor: Well, this was Cherry - And the smell was Marzipan! (Linked for anyone who isn't sure what i am on about!) And this smelled goooooood! Cut: nice and fine cut. Didn't notice too many stems. Not as wet as Grapes, but a really good moisture! Smoke: Thick smoke! Buzz: Very Mild, But I am not looking for buzzola! Duration: 1 & 3/4 Hrs using 4 3-King type QL's. Flavour stayed good the whole time. Overall this has to be a 9/10 This is right up there with my fav's and i will be keeping a stock of this. JD

    Silver Fox

    [color="red"][b]Afzal Silver Fox![/b][/color] [b]Appearance:[/b] Rough Cut - This is like the shisha-in-the-hood. Nice to pack in the bowl Damp but not wet. [b]Smell: [/b]Think... 'Mild Nahkla Two apples' Nice smell, really appetising. [b]Taste:[/b] Think... 'Mild Nahkla Two apples'! Yes, it's very similar but with a mellowier undercurrant. Couldn't quiet place it. Damn nice. [img]http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m273/Johnny_w_D/love.gif[/img] [b]Smoke:[/b] Needs a little heat management. Thanks to the gents at Hookahshop.co.uk they recommended leaving a coal on the bowl for a couple of mins.. seemed to work fine. The rest of the bowl smoked nice and thick. Not the thickist...but nice. 8/10 [img]http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m273/Johnny_w_D/thumb.gif[/img] [b]Buzz:[/b] Unwashed but cannot rate the buzz [I am unwell at this time] [b]Overall:[/b] 7/10 It's better than 'ok' ! In my own rating it's not Nahkla strawberry (Which is my No.1 [img]http://i106.photobucket.com/albums/m273/Johnny_w_D/biggrin.gif[/img] ) But I will order this again. It's a nice smoke! JD

    Al Fakher Orange [b]Smell/Flavor: Hello Oranges! This really smells like oranges... kinda like a fizzy orange smell! Cut: nice and fine cut. Couldn't see many Stems. And it's quite wet. Not as wet as grape though! Smoke: Very thick Orange smelling Smoke Buzz: Very Mild, but i'm an old hand at Hookaring! Duration: I expect the normal kinda smoke time (Just shy of 2 hours with 4 coals) But i'm still only 1/4 of the way through! This is a 10! No messing around. It smells and tastes like oranges and smokes superbly well! Nice work Al Fakher!

Smoke: Really Thick Clouds with Lots of flavour Buzz: No real Buzz. But i'm used to tobacco. Duration: 2Hrs with Japenese style coals. 9.5/10 Flavour Flavour Flavour! This lasted all the way to the end. Sticky orange flavour. Very fine smoke! JD

Right from the First puff to the very last. Taste lasted a good 1 & 3/4 of an hour. 10/10 [b]Smoke:[/b] A little thin for the first 30 mins, then thickened right up. Might have been my coal management. 8/10 [b]Buzz:[/b] It's Nahkla. Enough said! Great Buzzola! 9/10 [b]Overall:[/b] 9/10 This is one right up there with straberry! And will be repeated on my next order!9/10 JD

    My Working Gun Dog.

    Someone mentioned my working Gun dog on another thread of mine. As photography is a bit of a hobby of mine I'd though I'd share some of my fav images of the boy. He is around 3 years old now, we adopted him around 1 year old. He was badly beaten and abused in Scotland by a man and his son, and he hates men (Apart from me!) He loves the girls, but will not take to new men or other dogs (apart from his girlfriend, an ageing German Shephard) [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/prince_edmund_blackadder/4883250978/][img]http://farm5.static.flickr.com/4140/4883250978_d7d6bab946_z.jpg[/img][/url] [url=http://www.flickr.com/photos/prince_edmund_blackadder/4883250978/]DSCF9856[/url] by [url=http://www.flickr.com/people/prince_edmund_blackadder/]John W.

    My Working Gun Dog.

    The boy is well loved. He's getting much better as he gets older. He is a working breed lab' as confirmed by our vets. Apparently the working strain is slightly smaller with a bigger chest and jaw. He loves playing and working (as best as we can!).

    Tallest Hookah

    I wonder what the tallest, functional, hookah is. I'm guessing at some point big just gets too darn big? JD

    Mindful eating. I am trying a whole other approach to my life and weight JD
  15. Thanks guys. I'll post some others of the hound.
  16. [quote name='Click' timestamp='1309032958' post='513640'] [quote name='dizzbizz' timestamp='1309030887' post='513637'] Congrats! I smoke with my mom every once in a while. What stem is that? Its gorgeous. [/quote] I believe it is a KM Hafa. It has been years since I've seen one. [/quote] I believe it's a KM Hafa - it was sent to me as a christmas present from a UK Vendor about 3 years ago when I used to smoke everyday and would spend £100's each month! [quote name='ryno' timestamp='1309056485' post='513679'] Nice JD... anyone surprised to see he had pants on though [/quote] Ha Ha! - Your Lucky as it's normally boxer shorts only [quote name='Stuie' timestamp='1309056778' post='513681'] Awesome Brother! Can't wait for the day I get to smoke with my daughter and son. [/quote] It is good Stuie. Everything and anything to keep an open dialogue with your teenage children is a good thing. And if she wants to smoke I'd rather she smoked hookah at home with me! JD
  17. [quote name='jorlyfish' timestamp='1309016467' post='513613'] Nice! I wish my dad would smoke with me. I've tried to get him to a few times - he smokes cigars - but he's against it for reasons I don't know. [/quote] thanks Jorlyfish - I'm a big believer in being open and honest, the girl is nearly 17 and she does tell me about what she's ect. Better to be open and honest, so I treat her like the adult she is very fast becomming. Plus what's nicer - I don't smoke very often these days, but Hookah is for sharing the love right! [quote name='Big Boss' timestamp='1309024801' post='513630'] Nice socks! [/quote] Thanks Boss - I knew someone would pick that up

    New Weird Al Video!

    Is it just me........or was Al' looking smoking! Good video, not as raucously funny as 'eat it' or 'armish paradise' though JD
  21. Not dissimilar prices in the UK. I've seen those 50g boxes going for £1.98 or about $2.35 In the UK it's tax on bloody tax. There is a very healthy black market on European imported cigarettes, and a similar on hookah tobacco. I personally witnessed a UK customs & excise raid on a popular market that sold hookah products and tobacco.
