  1. Well worth the brag. That is an amazing space for a true fighter. Enjoy the spoils of victory.
  2. Wow, that sucks. I guess trusting your vendor is even more important in Canada. Thanks for sharing pics showing the future direction of the cigar world. I guess the outright ban is next in Canada.
  3. 1. Trinidad Fundadores 2. H.Upmann Sir Winston 3. Monte Especial
  4. Sorry for your loss. Condolences to you and your loved ones.
  5. I was thinking the same thing. I have a box of these from 2014 that I picked up during an LFTH (still haven't cracked the box). Those sales were so exciting, but alas a distant memory and apparantly a logistical nightmare. With all the members these days, an LFTH sale would likely be more frustrating than it is worth.
  6. At first, I was worried this photo might not be safe for work. At least at a distance.?
  7. Benchmade knives are nice. I would purchase a quality every day carry knife from them and use that to cut my cigar before I would purchase their cigar cutter. However, it is nice to see a quality knife maker at least trying to enter the market. I would like to see spyderco make a cigar cutter. I agree with others that it should be around $100, but they probably figure there are plenty of cigar folks who will slap down that kind of money on a cutter and they are most likely correct. another good knife maker tops knives has the 208 clipper which also has a bottle opener. Similar design. https://www.topsknives.com/208-clipper
  8. Just another self righteous a-hole mocking those she disagrees with. Another classless person with superiority complex trying to "help" by disparaging others. SAD times... https://www.jacksonville.com/news/20200506/coronavirus-how-fake-duval-resident-went-viral-with-her-jacksonvillelady-videos
  9. I miss watching my kids play soccer out on a field with their teams.
  10. Those are nice and all, but cigars that celebrate Chelsea F.C. would reel me in.
  11. The essential workers have stepped up and are keeping the "unessential" alive. To them, I say thank you. They are heroes. I don't care what your political persuasion, the front line workers put their lives on the line every minute of every day to help others. This whole thing sucks. Everyone has a different view on how to handle it and what is best. Each person thinks their methods or suggestions would be best. This whole pandemic effects more than anyone person or group of people can comprehend. Every solution seems to impact millions of other things. I understand that things must be done for safety, but I also understand that things must be done for the economy and to protect personal freedoms. I know I am not smart enough to resolve any of the big issues, I am simply trying to keep my family sane and alive after six weeks being home-bound. That and keeping my business afloat and trying to keep my employees paid.
  12. And going out in public. No one is forced to come in contact with others.
  13. Not true. Anyone who lost their job or ability to work is entitled to unemployment insurance. In addition, the federal gov. is adding $600 per week. In California that comes out to more than $1,000 per week in an effort to keep people afloat. If you didn't have a job, why should the government start paying you now?
  14. You better stock up while you can, and I don't simply mean toilet paper. Please no hoarder haters, I am not telling him to buy a palate of the stuff, but it sucks when you run out and cannot replace it. Those shelves won't look like that in a month. Maybe even a week or two. Things moved quickly here in California. Started with no hand sanitizer and now there are shortages of lots of everyday items.
  15. Whether dealing with the actual virus or the aftermath of it's impact on your community, I hope everyone stays safe. People worry me more than the actual virus (which does worry me) in these circumstances, so keep vigilant and hopefully most of you are prepared to deal with a lot of closures and shortages. This part of California is getting a little nuts or aware (depending on how you look at it).
  16. Wonderful...Congrats to us that you did all the hard work and we were able to simply enjoy. Thanks for creating such an enjoyable, educational and welcoming place. Even more thanks for allowing us to play. You are a true visionary and it has been entertaining to watch things develop. Even if some of us initially hate change. LFTW is the only thing I still miss.
  17. Wow, this is a tough crowd. If the kind fellow who sent the email is reading this, I will help you out. You should never purchase cigars in Cuba. They are inferior. True cigar aficionados (folks who truly appreciate a good cigar) only smoke Gurkha cigars. Leave those terrible Cubans to the lazy socialists and communists of the world.
  18. I love the tubos No. 3 and smoke them regularly. That's one of the nicest looking #3s I have ever seen. In my experience they are not usually lookers. The one in your picture is a beauty and looks more like the the no 1 or 2 wrappers.
  19. Once the FOH Auction site opens itself to sales from beyond the lockers, the true value and sustainability of secondary market cigars will be easier to track and more reliable pricing will be available. You will be the gatekeeper to accurate and important secondary market data. Or perhaps the keymaster
