  1. Power back on last Tuesday - just got cable back tonite. Missing what happened everywhere else. Ready to get back to following college football and ML Baseball!
  2. Hurricane ready with a little humor. Sand patch was 3 yards of sand we brought in for our neighborhood association. Went pretty quick! Since yesterday AM, filled hundreds of sandbags, boarded up and moved neighbor's outdoor furniture. Had 8 pieces of pizza, 4 beers(so far), plenty of ibuprofen and 25-30 cups of water. Beat to he'll - lots of work for an old cat! Under mandatory evacuation in our zone (12 ft above sea level). Locating to friends' home in higher elevation area. Funny that weather forecast I see or clear, calm, sunny skies come Tuesday!
  3. Here in Sarasota, FL. Have mandatory evacuation order in effect now for our zone near the ICW. Hope it stays to the east - would be wonderful if it were to miraculously hook back into the Atlantic, but not gonna happen. Went through Charlie in Orlando, but Irma is another animal - one to be taken seriously. Boarded up and sandbagged. Stocked on water, flashlights, batteries and beer. Rains already starting with two days to go! Prayers go out to those in the Caribbean islands and now, Cuba.
  4. Need some sage input here, as this has me stumped. Was enjoying a PLPC last night and about half way through, an extremely bitter taste suddenly came through and held for the next few draws. Thought about tossing it, but decided to re-trim the head. That did the trick and all went back to it's usual great taste. Only have had that occur once before and on that occasion I saw a very small bead of black at the cut head. Both times, I had used a V-cut from a quality cutter. That taste is not to be forgotten - something akin to toxic sludge! Cigars are kept at 68 deg. f and 62%, with excellent draw and burn. What could possibly be the cause of this horrible taste and accumulation at the cut? BTW, no cat litter, no cats in the house and the dogs don't mess with the wineador, so couldn't be a dog-rocket thing! So...
  5. Find a cigar friendly pub with a good happy hour! Have a few good ones here on the Florida Gulf Coast. Hope you find some relief!
  6. Wrapper Repair Help

    Gum arabic. I've successfully repaired worse on a few that were just too nice to toss. No affect on flavor or burn. Great stuff. The cigar will be a little fugly, but otherwise just fine.
  7. Por Larranaga Montecarlos

    Personally, not impressed. Vastly prefer the PLPC.
  8. Down here y'all call it Blanton's bourbon! Happy 1st to our Canadian neighbors to the north and happy 4th to us heathens in the good 'ole USA!
  9. Know it's late, but this is still a good one! A young Kindergarten teacher addresses her class and explains they would have a show and tell for the afternoon. With all the kids brimming with excitement, she holds up a shiny ripe red Braeburn and asks the kids what it is. Hands fly up everywhere. The teacher calls on little Suzie, “OK Suzie, what is this fruit?” The swift reply is ”it’s an apple, teacher”. “Very good, Suzie, come get your apple!” Next, the teacher holds up a bunch of round, ripe, purple Concords. “Who knows what these are?” Again, hands shoot up all around! “Sally, what do you think?” Sally replies that they are grapes! “Very good, Sally, come get your grapes”. Last item the teacher holds up is a small, foil wrapped pyramid chocolate candy. “Who knows what this is?” Nothing, not a single hand goes up. Teacher is perplexed and asks again with not a single reply. She calls on little Timmy to come up to her desk, unwraps the candy and puts it in his mouth. “Timmy, do you know now?” Still nothing! The teacher decides to give the kids a hint…”it’s what your mommy gives your daddy just before bed at night”. Suddenly little Tommy shouts out, “spit it out Timmy, that there’s a piece of ass!”
  10. Just think...this might just be either a really late or really early April Fools tweet from the Donald, uh, the prez ( not you, Rob), I mean the US President and twitter in chief. He's probably a connoisseur of fine cigars and really doesn't mean to sell us down the river just so's those selfish Canucks can get all the CC goodies! At least we still have a great exchange rate going for us!
  11. C'mon Rob...everybody knows our gov't does clusterf**ks so very well!
  12. Wow! Seems like throwing stones whilst living in a glass house. WE sell arms to Saudi Arabia... France included and a host of others. Let's all be big enough boys to take the blame.
