    I was unable to connect to puff yesterday from home. I am fine today from work obviously. Was the site down or do I have issues on my home puter? Thanks and sorry if this isnt the correct forum. I never visit anywhere else on puff.

    SOUTHERN ILLINOIS - When his wife got home from work Monday evening, Thoroughbred was laying face down under a pile of scorched debris. The smell of burnt tobacco filled the room, and Thoroughbred lay under it barely puffing. Over the sound of smoldering ash, she could hear the feebly muttered...

    Wife comes to me that evening with a package and addressing me by the name of my alter-ego, "rabidsquirrel"... This can't be good, me thinks... The one weak sane voice in my tiny pea brain meekly says run away! All the other voices in there :sl the lone voice of reason, and basically...

    I saw this sitting on Craigslist locally, and it looked like a pretty good deal. It's about 18"x13"x5-1/2", so decent sized and it was only $75. The painted on logo is beautiful, and it really shines....very glossy. Great seal too. Here's my question.... It's a Romeo y Julieta humidor - or at...

    We had a department meeting at work yesterday. Found out during the meeting that the company that bought us out a couple years ago had finally agreed to do a salary survey for our area and determined that we are underpaid. After 3+ years of pay cuts and unpaid furloughs, we finally get our pay...

    Well my carrier last night brings me a few packages I am expecting, plus one more from my favorite vendor(Holts). I had not ordered anything, and it was a small box, so it wasnt a catalogue or something. I put it aside and opened it this morning. There were 7 cigars...

    and made my first purchase today! I never knew such a thing existed. Im not real familiar with many of the offerings, so I dont know how much of a bargin some of them are, but a 5 pack of RP Edge Lites (I liked the one I tried...dont judge me! :) ) was like 14 bucks with free shipping. I dont...

    Aren't those cars almost two million dollars? It was just sitting there in a restaurant parking lot. Took a look at it, didn't want to get too close, never know if some nutjob with a gun was hiding out and guarding it. LOL! Didn't look that great. Not 2 million great for sure! Probably...

    So I was driving home and stopped in a gas station, about 5 minutes later, some guy comes barreling in with huge clouds of smoke coming from his under his hood, I am not talking a little overheat I mean I thought the car was on fire, but it was not. So what does he do he parks right next to a...
  11. Cigar Bombs
    It's been a long two weeks. Just to recap, last week I got bombed three days in a row. Then, yesterday, I get home & one of my roommates goes "You seem to be getting a lot of packages. There are two waiting for you now." Oh no. Jenady's Bomb: Punchman6's Bomb: Thanks Jenady & Punchman6! I...

    The other day i got a box of the flying pigs and 2 singles for the mean time will those age. I lit my first one ever up last night and i must say it defiantly lives up to the hype, it actually exceeded it. It was defiantly a very flavorful cigar i picked up hints of dark chocolate and...

    thats right, i slummed with a machine made cigar yesterday. i'll try any cigar at least once. the cigar in question was a garcia and vega candela panetella. machine made and at about $1 per stick. the whole panetella (smooth) and candela (throat burner) rolled into one package seems odd. i got...

    I had a great day yesterday. After 32 straight days at work I had my first day off. Slept late. Took the dog for a walk at a dog park by he river in Calgary and had a plp. Got home uncorked a bottle of red wine. Barbequed a rib roast and my "patates Roy-naisse" (just potatoes and onions splashed...

    The draw was flawless and the taste had it's "hmm this is getting good" moments but they were fleeting. It was overall a good cigar but I have to ask what all the fuss is about. I've seen nothing but praise here and I'm not doubting you guys at all, I just didn't find it groundbreaking by any...

    As I am getting ready to leave the house yesterday, I gathered my notes and to-do list for my day out on the road visiting my customers. I checked in on the pipe rack and stack of boxes, carefully choosing which lovely lumps of briar I would be sipping from for the day. I get my cell phone. I...

    Last night I tried Irish Flake for the first time. It was every bit as strong as everyone says - in fact, smoking it reminds me a lot of enjoying a cigar (only better). I think it will go on my "favorite tobacco" list right next to University Flake. I haven't tried the plug yet but I did open...

    Smoked the SG Full Virginia last night, pretty good a little bitter toward the end, a little odd but good. And the Rattray's MF this am with my coffee, very good as well, a little on the mild side. I can see why you see VA Blends as a straight VA can be a little on the bland side, not in a bad...

    Yesterday, after having talked to dmkerr for a short while, I came home to find a package waiting. Within it was a beautiful Orlik straight billiard (i believe model number 06). I was ecstatic. Not only was there a beautiful pipe, but there was also 4 generous tobacco samples as well, being...
