Mutters, I admire your dedication to the art of cutting costs elegantly.

I, however, would draw the line at smoking hawthorn leaves. i will stick with my camel dung Chinese tobacco for the time being.

Any pics of your battery?

I stopped smoking 19 months ago, but still have my Egyptian Hooka pipe and cherry and apple tobacco stuff. As soon as the weather is consistently warmer (and no risk of frost) it'll come out and sit by our little cast iron table outside.

Does that still count as smoking?
