  1. I wonder if someone from ISIS is following along with the Best books you have read in the past 12 months floating around in "The Watering Hole". At the recommendation of that thread, I picked up the book Mr. Mercedes. That book now has two similarities to two ISIS attacks. The book starts out with a guy running a Mercedes into a crowd of people waiting a job fair. That threw me back to the Nice attacks last years and the method used there (truck instead of car). Then, the book ends with a spoiled bomb attack at tiny bopper concert (sorry if this spoils the plot of the book for those who have not read it). That seemed to much like this attack. I know when things like this happen people try to draw similarities, but they just seem like two eerie similarities.
  2. How does one become friends with the Prince where he would share his cigars with them? For as much as they are on Instagram, it must not be that uncommon or are they copy cats? This seems lit it would be something only enjoyed by the 0.0001%? Those who attend Davos or something like it.

  4. In planning a trip down to the island I was looking at attending a baseball game. Afterall, I am starting to see more and more Cuban stars in the MLB. I was wondering if anyone has attended a game down there and has any advice of seeing a game from either Havana or Varadero? I understand one of the best teams is in Matanzas that is accessible from Varadero? Are there any good teams near Havana? How to the logistics of getting to and from a game work? What is the game experience like? What is the best way to get tickets? Do the games sell out?
  5. I got free passes for Disneyland through work. I took the family for a quick Spring Break trip. We have taken the family to both Disneyland and Disney World at Spring Break (wife is a teacher) and I can say it was utter madness. I have never seen so many people in my life! There was probably not a square foot in that park that day without a person in it. You almost couldn't move because there were so many people. We grabbed some fast passes and headed back to the hotel and swam during the day. Went back at night and during the Electric Light parade that my kids did not have interest in seeing we pretty much had easy access to the rides. Also the park was open till midnight so that weeds out some of the younger kids (if it is open that late during the time you are there). We have also done the Disney cruise which is still hectic, but great with little ones. Probably the only place you can enjoy a cigar on Disney property too (they have a high deck reserved for smokers with a bar near by...adults only deck)!
  6. You just took the words right of my mouth. We have vilified tobacco...let's keep milking it and find something else to pump for about sugar? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. CORO, HdM EE (10), PSD4 (10) and Lusi (10) Almost $800 on the dot!
  8. After last year I am surprised that there is no talk of a company running a line from Miami to Havana. I would think that the businesses doing business in Cuba would subsidize the effort to have reliable internet to support their logistics on the island. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I was also wondering what of the 12 choices most people choose when visiting down there? I was hoping for another FOH trip so I could use the selection for club event. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  11. Congrats! Now life has just begun for you!
  12. Also, I wonder how tobacco from different regions would taste. Would the soils of the Napa valley be good for cigars. Would the volcanic soil of Hawaii would produce a different flavor. I believe that Canary Islands were used for Dunhill cigars for a while.
  13. I wonder if there are any tax consequencies to rolling your own cigars? I remember a while ago all these roll your own cigarette shops popped up around here. When I inquired about them, I was told that people could roll their own cigars and avoid some of the government taxes associated with buying cigarettes from a merchant. Also, I have been to a few places where they have a cigar roller making cigars. There used to be a place in Oakbrook Mall that always had a couple guys rolling cigars in the back. That always seemed more as novelty than something boutique.
  14. Glad to know it gets better. I am about 1/4 through it and am ready to call it quits. Picked up after all the recommendations on this site. Did much better with the Stephen King Bill Hodges trilogy than this!
  15. Please tell me that 1Q84 gets better. I am about 25% and it is dragging for me. I started it at the recommendation of some people on this site.
