    Being very very new to the hobby, I thought it would be fun to put out a few of those things that I've experienced that could provide some solid entertainment value to the rest of the puffers out there. 1.) Scorched tongue - This happened recently... I don't get many opportunities to smoke, so...

    I learned two valuable lessons about cigars this weekend that I would like to share, from a noob to a nood (or anyone really). 1. When it comes to cigars, you can not rush ANYTHING. Don't try to smoke too fast, skimp on freezing, try to rush conditioning your humi, or let your cigars rest...

    So over the last couple months I have tried a few things, that I would call beginner mistakes. Here is my general take on getting into the hobby, what I *think* is the best way until you get more experience under your belt. Point #1: Don't try and be sly, just go buy a humidor from a reputable...

    Ok so the wife and I have been talking for the last 3 months as to how we need to behave with the presents for our anniversary. As we always spend to much and this year funds are just not there. So I buy some flowers, and a cool little wine bottle stopper. Nice little present, but nothing...

    I don't know why it didn't hit me sooner, but I just realized that just about every cigar that I like is made with Nicaraguan tobacco. Padrons, the Tatuaje's that I have tried, Nica Libre, Oliva Master Blends III, Serie V, CAO maduros & Brazilias. Next in line seem to be Honduran cigars...

    1. Smoking cigars is a wonderful hobby. 2. There are lots of really nice people who smoke cigars. 3. Many people really like it when you give them a cigar. 4. Torch lighters are really neat! 5. If you are using a torch lighter, do not try cupping you hand around a nub when trying to light...

    So last night... I was over at a friends and we hung out and watched the playoffs, and I smoked a "not so great" gurkha he gave me. Not so bad right..? Well, I thought it'd be a good idea to rinse my mouth with mouthwash before lighting up the 2008 Liberty Matt gifted me so that my palette...

    I was gonna put it in thoughts and prayers and decided not to. Decided it wasn't appropriate. So here it is, as it fell apart, I just stared at it and shook my head. Lesson learned, be careful with gear!! Thankfully, its only a 100.00 lens but still. Now out to buy another one this week.

    The wife wanted to go to the casino tonight, now keep in mind we just got back from a casino on Sunday and got annihilated at the tables. I thought a casino hiatus was in order. Then she pulled the ultimate "touche'" moment on me. So everyone its like this, never have a "discussion" about...
  13. General Pipe Forum
    The first pipe I bought when I decided to give pipes a try after a 35 year hiatus four months ago was MM Legend (bent) from our local B&M. I got along great with it and started picking up a few more pipes. The only thing I didn't like about the Legend was the mouthpiece. It wouldn't easily...

  15. General Cigar Discussion
    Stuck one of my beloved Padrons in my front left pants pocket to light up a little while later. Ended up doing some things in the meantime and when I reached in and pulled out the stick, it was bent, but fortunately the wrapper did not break! Man, that would have pissed me off. I do have one...
