    What's up with all of the threads having Tags now? Where they automatically generated? Taking words from the title and automatically creating Tags makes the search function redundant to a certain degree. It seems to me that the the use of Tags could have been so much more. Have a look at...

    Once again I am humbled by the return fire of fellow BOTL. Recently I noticed that PaleRider AKA Nate had a hankering for all things Nicaraguan so I offered to send him a sampling of a few smokes that featured leaf from this great growing region. Nothing special just some cigars that I have...

    I am having problems deleting "Albums" I have created from my profile page. With the customization feature removed from my profile page I would like to remove the albums that contained the photos that supported that customization. Thanks.

    Richard tossed a surprise my way, a homemade blend I labeled tzaddi. Smoked a bowl in a GBD. Smoked very cool and dry. I'm not really adept at reviewing tobaccos, but all I can say was it was great to the last puff. Stayed lit, soft ash, no tongue bite. The taste was mildly sweet which was...

    I made the mistake of asking tzaddi about some Getomi the other night. He said, "I was playing cooler Tetris and need to get rid of something. It is on the way." Not only that, tzaddi is a very nice Brother that always seems to understand where a guy is coming from. He sent along some great...

    OMG!!! This is why I love coming home at night (besides to my beautiful wife and baby): The tzaddi, shilala, gnukfu Triple Threat Bomb Bombed at my own B&M!!! Tzaddi said he left something for me at my B&M, while I was away for the San Jose Herf. I walked into a bomb of mass destruction: A...

    Well today was a very special day, I got bombed (yes, again) by a great BOTL tzaddi. My igloo is melted, my sled dogs have been scattered, all the seals are gone, and the polar bears have all run away, nothing left but me, a box and a crater where the post office used to be!! So a while ago I...

    Some of you might know of my interest in growing tobacco from the thread "Cigar Birthing". Those that have followed the thread, grown or plan on growing their own tobacco or just have an interest in such things know how critical and complex curing/drying tobacco can be. If not, let me tell...

    So, I start this thread about the Padilla Hybrid and how I'm gonna miss it. Tzaddi (Richard) says he has some and offers to send me a couple. As you can see by picture below, there were some additions to the package! Thank you, Richard. Now I just need to figure out where to put all the stuff...
