  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    Cohiba Lancero on an Aloha Friday. Cheers all!
  2. A couple 6ers of sticks I’ve never had. Usually spells trouble for my credit card.
  3. FOH: A Week In Pictures.

    Some pics from my after-work ride today, up to Horner Reservoir, above Ka’anapali. Home to a resident flock of Nene Geese, native to Hawaii. Good times.
  4. Could his recent run-in with your local telecommunications provider have anything to do with this?
  5. I do see it. My words weren’t meant to be projected on anyone necessarily...I was mostly stating what worked for me, growing up and working in an old-school plantation town at twenty-something. I had to figure out how to pry the knowledge and experience out of the old-timers pretty quickly. And of course I have no idea what life is like in the UK, so there’s that too.
  6. At 56, I’m grateful to have worked with some fine mentors over the years. But back when I was your age, I learned pretty quickly that replacing my misguided young-un contempt with a little humility and respect went a long way.
  7. The article seems quite “considerable, but not so serious” to me. Clear as mud.
  8. FOH Weekend in Pictures (Comp).

    What exactly is that?
  9. FOH Weekend in Pictures (Comp).

    Just brought home my weekend score. Found this on Craigslist yesterday...on Maui. The odds are staggering, trust me. It was one of the display humidors out of Sir Wilfred’s, a longtime Lahaina Tobacco shop that sadly closed a few years ago. They were the only B&M on the island to stock truly primo cigars. Well worn on the outside, and wrapped in fakie wood veneer, it’s the inside of it that shines, with Spanish Cedar throughout. She’ll be functional in no time.
  10. Drop dead gorgeous Churchills. If I used a flash taking the pic, you’d need sunglasses right now.
  11. Horrible news out just now!

    Wow, shockingly sad news today. Bourdain’s shows were one of the few things worth watching on TV these days.
  12. FOH Weekend in Pictures (Comp).

    Oh...you mean these...
  13. FOH Weekend in Pictures (Comp).

    Wait a minute...I’m heading to Oregon in August for some mountain biking. I’ve already got mountain lions and rattlesnakes in the back of my mind, now I have to keep an eye out for Crocs too?
  14. My lemon is APU Jul 15 Coloniales. Been smoking through the box for nearly 2 years now, I think there are 4 left. I only recall one as being memorably tasty, the rest have been very blah. The remaining 4 turn 3 years old next month...a small part of me is holding out that something highly unlikely but magical will happen as soon as that threshold is crossed. My most reliable is a box of MEL Dic 15 HdM Epi 2’s. Each and every one so far has been so incredibly tasty and with an amazing aroma, and they’ve consistently gotten more creamy and smooth over the last year and a half. Somehow, I still have about 10 left. Pretty sure I’m going to shed a tear or two when they’re gone.
