    So last minute I had to go to Leavenworth to support my wife in a half marathon as her running partner had a family emergency. I figured I'd enjoy a morning cigar while watching the morning sun clear the clouds away from the mountains as my wife did her running thing. So as I packed my things...
  2. Habanos Discussion
    After my first Habanos experience I now understand why Cuban cigars and domestics defy comparison. I just had to smoke one of my H. Upmann Magnum 50's after smelling the foot. Never has the aroma of an unlit cigar literally made me contemplate eating it. It was like a bar of chocolate and spice...

    ...but I now know it's dangerous! The resident Puff Poet Laurate blew me up! Thanks Terry! I don't know what this has to do with blue eyes, but I'll enjoy the bluish smoke from each of them!

    So, Kevin (Kapathy) PMs me. "Hey man, I like your sketches, how much would it cost to have you do a sketch for me." Now, normally, I'd just pat a nice young man like Kevin on the head and say, "WTF you think I am? An artistic Whooooore?!!!" and send him on his way. (Okay, so I am an artistic...
  5. General Cigar Discussion
    I have a little rant. My family despises the fact I smoke cigars. They think I only smoke because my uncle (who I'm close to), chain smokes black and milds:yuck:. No, I've literally always wanted to smoke a cigar. Since I was 5, and I did the right thing and waited until I was 18. My dad keeps...
  6. General Pipe Forum
    Got myself a beautiful Savinelli pipe as a graduation gift. I figured it would look good, and possibly be a moderate improvement to the cobs and medico I was currently smoking. For $70 I didn't expect much tho… I could not have been more wrong. This pipe makes those other pipes seem like...

    I am smoking my first JdN Antano 1970. What the hell is this thing?! I can't put it down in my ashtray for fear it will leap up and kick my ass. I can't discern any of the flavors...I am still in the first third but what a ride so far. I think it's frowning at me...I had better get back to...
  8. General Cigar Discussion
    I have been reading many, many post and wondering how everyone gets sooooo many cigars :der: Well today I stopped at my local B&M to pick up some of my favorite smokes for a sampler trade, then I got home and there were two boxes waiting for me.....I received 39 cigars just today and I bid on...

    I don't quite understand why Quesada does not allow for internet sales of their popular Casa Magna's. In today's very competitive market, why not spread your brand? I suppose the argument can be made that by making something difficult to find, you are thereby increasing its demand for it (we...

    Stood home today and listened to radio and tele, and visited some neighbors various cookouts, and I heard too many time "Happy Memorial Day" Do any of these people realize memorial day is not a 3 day weekend, but a time of merorial. Have a good time, Im with that, but the...

  12. Cigar Questions
    I'll be the first to admit that my palette and experience is clearly in the 'minnow' stage. However, in my 20 years of smoking, I believe I've smoked some of the highest rated sticks on the planet. Most from Upmann, Monte, Hoyo, Romeo & J, Cohiba, Partagas, the Miami Gloria (anyone remember...
  13. Tobacco Legislation
    I live in Canada and I'm not in the loop when it comes to all the talk about SCHIP and other tobacco laws in the US that I see so many of you discussing on the forums. To be honest, I don't really want to read through all the posts (I kinda find it dry to read). But I am interested to understand...
  14. General Pipe Forum
    Okay, I think I know the basics, but, being over analytical, perhaps, it seems to me that the terms burley, cavendish, etc. don't form a logical system. I just wanted to kick this around. It seems to me the following are the "variables" in going from growing tobacco plant to the final...
  15. General Discussion
    I have been away a while and I showed back up tonight with a blue name once again. I have been reading old threads and drama threads and so on and for the life of me cannot really understand why everyone is so upset. I have seen a hundred threads with angry posts, rude posts, etc. So many of...

    I had a bunch of Canadian dollars I needed to exchange, so I went to the currency exchange window at the local bank. it was a short line....... Just one lady in front of me . . an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars and she was a little irritated . . . She asked the teller...
  17. Habanos Discussion
    I wanted to do a Cuban trade, but wasn't allowed. But there are Cuban PIFs and wish list threads posted freely. I even kept my trade request unspecific to drive it towards PM. How do I do it then? Just curious.
  18. General Cigar Discussion

My wife also grabbed a couple for me.one that shee grabbed was a Java. I just smoked what i think you guys call a dog...

I was like oh! um.. and just move on around the store.. now at the time I...
  20. General Discussion
    I truly understand what people feel like when they go postal: Story to ensue! As some of you know I bought a 2007 Ford Fusion last month. Well today was the day that I need to get the plates and such. Went the the BMV around 9:30 this morning (attempt #1), stood in line for a while and when I...
