  1. Nice earring dude [emoji4]
  2. Guess where I went this morning? Let me give you a tip.... ;-)
  3. Ticks are such useless parasites. Even mosquitoes have their functions in nature, eg as very specific pollinators, but I can't think of anything useful that ticks do. Interestingly, most tick species have specific hosts. It is the cosmopolitan species, such as the Australian paralysis tick; Holocyclus lanatus, that are problematic for humans and domestic animals. Their main host is the bandicoot, but they're not fussy eaters like most ticks are. Also of interest is that although there are a few recorded cases of "Lyme's-like" disease, as far as I know Lyme's disease has never been officially identified in Australia. I understand that there are ongoing studies to determine the precise identity of this serious ailment. I need to get up to date on this subject. Paralysis ticks are a common hazard in my work place.
  4. Because of bad traffic in Sydney this morning and poor anticipation on my part, I am enjoying a lonely Juan Lopez Seleccion no2 on the Cairns esplanade while my family is already with relatives up in Weipa. I won't bore you with the prosaic details of my day, except to say that this fairly fresh stick is a wonderful way to bring it to a close.
  5. My wife has asked me if the odour of cigars smoked in my car will harm our children. My mind boggles.
  6. $145 AUD iirc. That was about a year ago.
  7. Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed reply. I will certainly take your thoughts on board. It's funny but regarding the strength of the JL 1, I find that after settling in for a couple of months they are a very smooth smoke. Generally and in my limited experience, I find Bolivar to be quite strong and with a mongrel factor that takes a long period to settle down. The JLs however are nicely settled after a few short months, but what they offer in terms of mouth filling flavour is quite exceptional. Kind of like a mouth full of the most incredible perfumed fragrance which I have not found in any other cigars, possibly excepting one regios I smoked about six months ago. The journey continues
  8. One day brother, I promise :-)
  9. Evening ladies & gents. No offence to any b/sotls but the australian tax office and customs dept can shove this black market JL 2 up their collective arses. Sent from my XT1580 using Tapatalk
  10. Because its too hard for the c##ts to take tax from multinationals. So screw your population instead. Great plan, really sustainable. C##ts. Sent from my XT1580 using Tapatalk
  11. Can anyone suggest a PC or smaller that has similar flavour profile to a Juan Lopez S2 or even S1? The flavours in both of those are just perfect for me but as far as I know JL don't have a smaller regular production vitola. Sent from my XT1580 using Tapatalk
  12. This is my tt setup. I was spinning some 20th Century classical quartets the other night, but tonight its Don Cherry's Organic Music Society. Collecting vinyl is fun, but not without its challenges. The music can sound better than digital, but there are so many factors involved to make it so. It can also be a good investment if you know what you're looking for, eg i have a few albums i bought new in the 90s, when vinyl was in serious decline, that are worth hundreds now. Many folks travel the world to go crate digging for valuable bargains. Additionally lots of new releases are pressed in limited runs which can escalate quickly in value for in demand pieces. But I'm not in it for that; the music itself is my top priority, followed by the fun of collecting.
  13. Took me a while to catch up with this thread.....
  14. I have a collection of around 500 LPs and growing. I enjoy a wide variety of music, from heavy metal to jazz to avante-garde to drone and many others. I play them on a vintage Thorens TD160 Super turntable fitted out with a "Wand"tonearm from NZ and an Ortofon Quintet Black cartrdge. Amplification provided by a Modwright SWLP preamp and a Naksa 100 power amp. Speakers are currently vintage British monitors Spendor BC1. I also have more than 1000 CDs and have started collecting cassettes, which have been enjoying a minor resurgence of late. I will post some pix later if anyone is interested.
