  3. Finished raking leaves, mowing the yard, and hung a bird house my son built in scouts. Enjoying a really rare November short sleeve day here in Chicagoland with a BBF and Elijah Craig 12. Sharing with my Cub fan Brother-in-law Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. In the past few weeks I have seen a few boxes that Rob has put up on the site from his trip to Hong Kong. Some of these were from 2009, the year my son was born. Not knowing anything about acquiring Cuban cigars nor anything about aging back then, I didn't think to pick up a box from that year. I have always had this vision of sitting back with my son on a camping trip in 2027 or 2030 when my son is 18 or 21 and enjoying a cigar from his birth year with him. My question is would that cigar have aged past it prime our would it still have a good taste? I was just wondering if was worth whil
  5. Agreed. I read that book earlier this year and it is definitely a page tuner. After reading this book you definitely take a step back when you walk down a busy city street and see everyone glued to their phones. In a world were we automated everything, this book makes you realized how much we have really lost those core skills to produce as a society. It also is a good lesson civics and how governments form and evolve and the hard choices those in those roles may have to make. I know some of the stuff in this book is a bit of stretch, but it does really make you step back and look at your
  6. I was a late comer to get my own cell phone. My first was a Sprint A460 by Samsung I don't really consider the Atari 2600 a computer and my sister won a TI-99 that I got to occassionally play with, but the first computer we had in our family and I played with forever was an Apple IIe
  7. Just got an email from Travelzoo that I had to open titled, "$99* -- JetBlue Flights to Cuba from Ft. Lauderdale, O/W". Their flights are to Camaguey, Holguin, and Santa Clara. It is probably not going to get you to the meet-up in November at a cheaper fare, but hopefully it is a sign of things to come!

  8. Enjoying a 2009 Monte 4 tonight. I got a fiver from a friend when I had my son. He had just been laid off so I figured he could use a good cigar. Nice and mellow to the end. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Would be really interesting if you could get Yuengling down there since we cannot even get it in Illinois yet. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. May 15 OPG BBF. Great cigar on a very hot and humid day. Got very hot toward the end. Enjoyed watching a storm roll in while smoking it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I was really surprised that there were not any flights to Havana from Chicago! It is the second busiest airport in the country and the only flights going to Cuba from there are to Santiago on Frontier. What a sham!
  12. Like the patch behind the cigar too. Just got recruited into being my son's Assistant Den Leader. Enjoy!
  13. Is the same of the PSD4s? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Someone should create an adult coloring book with cigar band labels or whiskey bottle labels Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. When your Cubans are laying down for a little rest it's time to go to the next best option. An Opus X is a very good alternative. That and a little Elijah Craig. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  19. My thought when I read this was about the copyright issues between the Dominican versions of Cuban brands. However, since those brands sell sizes that mimic the Cuban brands would they have to be reapproved if the supply country of origin changed? It might be the bait needed for the Cuban and Domincan brands to work out their differences. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
