  1. FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    I think what is probably the last sun of the Summer for me in the UK has finally made me lose my mind, pairing a CoRo with a Pina Colada! 😰😰😰😰
  2. Personally, given that we are only storing/aging cigars, I honestly do not see a problem with 1 or 2 degrees inaccuracy, so long as I don't see many fluctuations and I am getting readings between 60 and 65, I am a happy camper. If my Hygrometer is telling me 60, when it is actually 62, who cares? I was using Calibre Hygrometers, retailing at £25 each, but now use multiple £6 cheapos from Amazon which look almost identical, other than cant be calibrated. They are not as accurate, but a sticker with the variation written on does the trick.
  3. All I ever wanted was for my mother to take the legs of my school pants in and stop sending me in flares! 😠😠😠
  4. Overpriced "boutique" crap aimed at a different crowd than cigar enthusiasts. They make Davidoff look like a decent smoke.
  5. I don't believe that any Aussie sports team expected that first half. Even after the woeful super rugby season, they must have thought they had a chance, Cheika came across pretty well, positive and committed in his pre match interview. Do you think it's time for him to go, or is the current state of affairs all down to the players on the field?
  6. I was surprised how much the ABs did seem to fall asleep, bit credit where it's due, the Aussie's exploited it ruthlessly. Agreed that any team in the world would have been butchered in that first half. That said, when your winger is falling for dummies from a loose head prop, you know you are in for a hiding.
  7. I would be happy with a large shed if it was close enough and full of like minded cigar lovers. The UK is utter shite for all things cigar related. There are a couple of "cigars bars" within 20 miles or so, have visited them both and and seem pretty empty other than a few pretentious twats trying to hold court. I just don't think we have the culture for it in the UK currently, but I so wish we did. That said, I shall be trying The Puffin Rooms in Liverpool next week with a non cigar smoking friend and his Mrs, is a bit of a jazz bar as well so might work out OK. Only problem is, it is owned by CGars Ltd which even by UK standards is horrendously over priced .
  8. From a neutral perspective, what a game that was, entertaining throughout, utterly one sided first half, excellent and spirited fightback in second half. As an Englishman. I wish our footballers were as professional as the All Blacks, but that's another discussion about over paid Mary's who can't string three words together in a sentence. My question to the Aussie's is this. Where do you stand in world rugby union now? I honestly thought as I was awaiting kick off that this would be a close match. Do you think you will manage second in the Championship? The Springboks are transitional as well. Is the state of Aussie Rugby union as bad as Micheal Lynagh implies in our TV coverage?

    A pleasant PLPC with a Cafe Bustelo, in my 1992 League Champions mug, which I can't believe has not been broken over the years. Smoking it with a spate of nostalgia for pre Super League Rugby, for the Aussie's out there, remember the 1994 Challenge match in Brisbane? Wigan finest moment, in my top 3 games ever.

    Sunday was Sir Winnie day.
  11. I am quite partial to the R&J Puritos, nice and sweet, and the Partagas Chico's, have some vague Partagas hints within. Have not tried the Monte Puritos or Cohiba Shorts, might have to grab a couple of boxes of each. I do find that smoking these style of cigars makes it more of a habit than a hobby though, so have tended to keep then in short supply 😱😱😱

    Saturday afternoon Cohiba Robusto, it was quite delicious, only 2 left in humidor, so time for a swift purchase I believe.
  13. Whats up for the weekend?

    Oh the age old conundrum of playing in gigging bands is the fact, you absolutely have to, learn songs you might not even like. Playing at dingy little Labour clubs in the NW of England taught me that years ago. All I ever wanted to do was unleash a shit load of Deep Purple at the old biddies, when to them, a bit of Tom Jones was "out there". Glad the gig went well, there is really is nothing more fun then playing live.
  14. Whats up for the weekend?

    That is one diverse set list! Hope it goes well. Played in club/pub bands for years until it started to clash too much with being off late from the day job, I do miss it, was hilarious fun. You cannot beat arriving somewhere on a Sunday afternoon to be told you are on before the bingo to deflate ones ideas of rock stardom 😂😂 My last band was a Foo Fighters tribute act, probably the most fun I ever had with guitar in hand. I now have a Gibbo Lee Paul and an Explorer sat doing nothing for the last 12 years or so, perhaps it's time to offload them and buy some more cigars 😱😱
  15. I very much struggle with the perfect pairing concept. I have no doubt that there are some things that do go better together for some palettes, but mine clearly is not developed enough to appreciate all the nuances. For me, I like smoking cigars. I also like drinking Real Ale, strong Belgian beers, Single Malt Scotch, quality Vodka, good sipping Rum, Tequilla, Bourbon, red wine, white wine, pink wine, cheap wine, Champagne, crappy prosecco from Aldi and a myriad of homemade cocktails. I am a man who can find smoking happiness whilst sipping my incredibly delicious homemade Bloody Mary through a straw and I am almost certain you will not find that combo on any recommended lists.
