  1. I set-up a daily google alert for cigars and each day at lunch I got list of cigar article links. I would say 85% of the articles link back to Halfwheel, but there is a smattering of press releases, cigar deals & cigar info.
  2. Turntables and Vinyl

    Looks great, congrats! All this vinyl talk may get me spinning more often.
  3. So you're saying eating Gas Station sushi is not a good idea?
  4. poll on favourite italian reds

    AMARONE 1st, BAROLO second and you can keep the rest,
  5. I'd like to post a politically incorrect meme here about cyborg, but one of my New Year's resolutions is to be more kind. I thought from the start cyborg was too strong for HH, but her ability to go 5 rounds was impressive especially since she lost 3 of her last 4 fights heading into the match.
  6. For me I was heavily into the hobby (obsessed) for about 4 years going from no humidors to 5 of them. I read every cigar blog, website, forum, even had a Google news alert for the word "Cigar." I've had some pretty significant health problems this year with my last cigar smoked this past January. I still keep up with it by quickly dropping into a forum or two, but the obsession has pretty clearly dissipated. I'm sure when and God forbid "if" I can start enjoying them again the obsession will return. For now I am just living vicariously through all of you.
  7. for those who cook...

    The best thing I ever made was a home made ravioli stuffed with snow crab, corn & shiitake mushrooms and topped with a homemade lemon grass sauce. When we ate it we could not believe we actually made it ourselves it was just so amazing. Weirdly, I've never made it again, mostly because the plethora of ingredients are really hard to come by where we now live.

  9. Candela a calling?

    I like the regular KFC from Drew Estates, but have not yet sampled the Swamp series candelas. To date my favorite candela is the Formorian from RoMa Craft Tobac. Here's the review from HalfWheel One of the best things I can say about a cigar is that it’s simply a darn good cigar and leave off any pretense or qualifiers. While some might look at the CroMagnon Fomorian as a good candela, or a good cigar when you want something different, neither of those apply here, as it’s simply a darn good cigar. Yes, the wrapper is a different color than 99.9 percent of what you will find in your typical humidor, and yes that makes this cigar stand out. But at the end of the day, it’s balanced, offers plenty of very enjoyable flavors, burns well save for a fairly slow final third, and leaves me wanting another. If that doesn’t constitute a recommendation, I don’t know what does. Too bad there aren’t more of these to go around.
  10. Well here is a quote from his website. Available for consultation No longer building humidors
  11. Seems to be a cottage industry down there ripping off cigar companies, Alec Bradley was also hit a year or so ago.
  12. Everyone knows that Habanos, SA has been behind the whole global UFO hoax for over 75 years. Its a PR stunt to drive sales!
  13. I always used to practice in front of the mirror before giving a speech. It not only helped me get down what I wanted to say, but also helped me to understand what I looked like when delivering the information, which is as important as the words you are delivering. Focus on your facial expressions and hand/arm gestures and use them as well as voice inflection to communicate the most important points in your talk. I always preferred having either a note card with bullet points of topics I wanted to cover rather than having a fully written speech. One thing I've found about public speaking is that most people are nervous about it, whether they admit it or not, and most audiences recognize how nerve racking it can be up there. Just be professional, make a strong effort and your audience will appreciate your speech! Good Luck!
