  1. not sure if this is true but the news in the west has been reporting that troops (army?) have been massing on the border of Hong Kong. If true that is a bad sign of things to come. They will hurt a lot of people before this situation is to the Gov.'s benefit.
  2. well in usa the public has grown to accept and even love thier auto. it has gotten to the point that rail, boat and flying has suffered at the hands of the auto market. problem now in the states especially in the older cities, northeast New York, west coast and middle of the country, Chicago, Michigan..the bridges are failing and the roads are in piss poor shape. These cities are almost broke and they do not have the cash to fix the infurstructer that is under thier control. For work I drive a Honda that is called "Green Technology" it has a electric motor and a gas motor. The el motor is powered by a 200 volt ion battery, while the gas motor is a 4 cylinder normal aspirated engine. When the auto is moving the gas motor charges the ion battery. Not a bad setup. At least I do not need a charging station. And until the states gets enough of those (charging stations) 100% el auto will have a hard time making inroads into the auto market. If the eletric car makers make it easy to charge your el auto at home then you have a real challenge. note. gasoline for cars in the states is very cheap now. some towns and cities $2.40 to $2.80 gallon!
  3. Have money, fast fingers and a good drink / smoke at your beckon call!
  4. as a long ago system writer (Vb, COBOL, Adv, COBOL) there is the saying; garbage > garbage < . I'm sure any problems the system encounters will be handled in professional manner . Your IT guys do a great job! Can't wait for the fire works to begin!
  5. nothing like a re-packaging of a old smoke to get the blood flowing. remember what Habanos took out of production to make this smoke. Only the corona had remained for the French market out of 4 total.
  6. could care less about starbucks or for that matter coffee in general. I'll make mine a double shot of espresso w / tablespoon of sugar, glass of sparkling water and a good CC (from FOH) with the espresso could not ask for more. Simple and basic is the way to go. later gators!
  7. now dys I just buy from FOH. Unless I'm in Europe or Japan and pick up some smokes there I find no reason to freeze any cigars. So nope, never ever. But I will go to Kuba soon (two hours) from states as the 767 / 737 flies. Right now would like to see more creature comforts in country. The use of credit / debit cards are a must for me. I don't like walking around with wads of money on my being.
  8. Well if it was good for Samson then it must be ok for Kraft. I heard the rest of the NFL owners each threw money into a hat and hired a camera crew to flim the room where Kraft would be in when he got his groove on. The NFL owners were tired of his team winning all of the time and knew they had to find a way to stop it. Boom oldest trick in the book and he got snagged.

  10. Palio used to be great for the money. Ever sine they changed ownership they are not as good. If you think you have a orginal cutter just check the side of the cutter were the Palio logo is. It used to be a horse rearing up, now it just says Palio and as I said I think the new ones are well below the orginals in quality.

  12. Blood sport. If their were no plastic helmts there would be no real pain, aka broken this or that, crashing of two, three... men 250 lbs or more and what a sound it makes! if you have ever been on the sidelines when this happens very thrilling. Aslo same reason people go and see NASCAR, the crashings! Let's not kid ourselves human enjoy the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat! It is like what major Killgore said, "smells like victory" refering to naplam being drop on the enemy.
  13. Been to Spain and France and can say that Spain has some really great boxes of Habanos. I think one reason is the relationship between the two countries. I would not doubt that Spain is treated with special care when it comes the quality they receive. But I think more pragmatically and think that the B and M's in Spain just take care of their inventory at a very high level, in terms of how they store them. Spain has always has had a strong relationship with Cuba in general. Can't be said about France! Don't get me wrong I have found great smokes in France and Monaco ( i iknow not part of France) but close enough. Especially in the South of France along the Rivera from the border of Italy to the border of Spain (great local train ride) great smokes abound. But again Spain seems to get great quality from Kuba. Just my observation.
