Newbie from England. Hi.

Hi everyone.
I'm Neil and just joined this forum. I am now retired and have taken to my pipes again after a considerable break (you know, not fair to smoke around children, plus not really having the opportunity nor funds to enjoy a pipe with a family). I initially started smoking a pipe at the age of 17; have never smoked cigarettes but do enjoy the occasional cigar, mainly Nicaraguan. A good whisky is always a welcome accompaniment to a smoke.
I'm married with three terrific children and enjoy long walks with our dog (labrador retriever). Have always enjoyed shooting and now concentrate on long distance fullbore precision target rifle, with some clay pigeon trap shooting.
Look forward to finding my way around this forum and some interesting interactions.
