Re: Entry-level piping-related careers? Advice requested

I'm sure this may not be what you want to hear/read, but these are my suggestions that are being offered honestly, in earnest, and unvarnished (if you will).

Re: Piper in The Crown Season 4

Re: Stolen smallpipes in Tucson, AZ

I'm unsure. As far as I'm aware, the authorities around Tucson are working on that. From what I'm told, the Ebay poster is cooperating ... so I would imagine they're working to determine where he got...
