  1. Saw this too late 😞 If an opening occurs, I would love to join.
  2. You want solid evidence? Here you go: Its also common knowledge that the director of the WHO “may” not have his position if it was not for China. (A simple internet search gives overwhelming evidence) Here is just one: I also agree with your comment about many foreign governments took too long to respond. Again, I am just relating information that was given to me by credible sources in China (2 doctors and 3 other health care workers), which can also be backed up by recent facts being uncovered...
  3. We have some very good friends in China confirming that the death toll in Wuhan is way above 45000, and that it started in November of 2019... It is still very bad in parts of China, but we will never know how bad.... They say they definitely lied and covered up this virus, and no doubt facilitated many “avoidable” deaths around the world.
  4. Unless they are sealed inside the box... then they will replicate and turn into plant eaters and devour your cigars ?
  5. I believe this situation, although rare at the moment, suggests the severity of this virus is just cracking the surface...
  6. California shut down at midnight last night (except for the grocery stores, pharmacies, hospitals and pot dispensaries) if the rest of the country doesn’t follow suit, it may not matter...
  7. Sent the programmers and developers home to work. Skeleton crews in the offices, to update news and keep a watch on cybersecurity. Shelter in place for the rest of the employees. We are towards the end of our 10K (audit for 2019) with a deadline of March 31, auditors are slower than usual... it’s going to be close, but hopefully we can get it done on time...
  8. Since there is so much chaos, wouldn’t it be easier to just do a mandatory “shelter in place” for 3 weeks, then you would know exactly how long you would be out of work/business, everything would be back to normal in less than a month... restaurants, bars, hotels, etc... back to business. Am I just being naive?
  9. I am happy to hear you guys enjoyed the cigars! One of the things I love the most in this hobby of ours is sharing great cigars, and seeing these reactions...
  10. Ok, I may have been a bit overzealous when I mentioned that it was a fact that too little moisture will ruin your cigars... please forgive me... What I meant was that in my experiences they were ruined for my taste. The point I was trying to make is... maybe... this new way of using lower humidity (with the temperature at 68 to 70 degrees) just... maybe... is not so good for your cigars long term. Everyone is entitled to their opinion and they are able to make choices for themselves. It is a fact “for me” and that’s what I meant.
  11. This will be my last post on this matter... I have 70 year old boxes that are in perfect condition because of the old “tried and true” method of preserving these precious cigars. For all this time 70/70 was drilled into our grandfathers, our fathers and then to us. Why? Because it worked. Sure, I changed it just a bit to 68/68, because it was close enough (margin for error) and for 20 plus years it has worked perfectly. You have seen near 100 point scores in reviews “here” with this method... Then all of a sudden there’s a “new” way to do it... lower humidity is now better, the old (tried and true) method is now “hogwash”... and... it works for me so it MUST be the right way to do it. That is until 15 to 20 years from now, maybe it turns out that it isn’t... Is lower better? Nobody really knows for sure... has the old way worked for decades? Hell yes! Just like this information was passed down to my dad, then passed down to me, I am passing it down to you. What you do with this information is entirely up to you.
  12. 65 to 68 percent to store long term. Dry box at 58 to 62 percent to smoke.
  13. It’s “my opinion” that at those temperatures your humidity is a bit too low. As MRN stated “no one really knows” but with my experience, I have found that humidity levels atound 60 percent, and temps around 65 to 70, will eventually dry your cigars out. After long term exposure to this environment, it will substantially lower the quality of your cigars...
  14. That makes sense. Makes you wonder why they kept rare cigars in there.
  15. It probably wasn’t broken very long, and the cigars just needed rehydration.
  16. Yes, you are right... however I did say “most” of the people that know me... I should have said “among” the best, but it’s not me that’s saying it ?
  17. I think you will be ok... just put them back in your humidor for a month or two, they should be fine.
