  1. I go to Shelly's Back Room in Washington DC (its about three blocks from the White House) occasionally to meet up with friends and smoke cigars. One day I looked over and started reading the names on the cigar lockers and saw this...
  2. Fonseca No.1, UTL SEP 17 a bit toothy on the wrapper and it feels dry (though it is not)
  3. Not bad. Don’t get me wrong it is not spectacular like a great No2. To me at least I feel this is just a longer No4. What I do like is that extra bit of time to enjoy it. Cheap and cheerful. Well... relatively cheap ?
  4. It was rather bland and got acrid at the very end. First 88 I've ever smoked. The RASCC I smoked after was much better.

Considering it’s under four dollars for a cigar, I couldn’t be happier with its performance out of the gate. Update: Just finished the cigar. Really enjoyed it! The dry boxing made all the difference in the world! Will take about five out of the Humidor to dr
  8. Dallas TX(AP) - A 7 year old boy was at the center of a court room drama yesterday when he challenged the court’s ruling of who should have custody of him. The boy has a history of being beaten by his parents, and was initially awarded custody to his aunt, in keeping with child custody law and regulation requiring that family unity be maintained to the highest degree possible. The boy surprised the court when he proclaimed that his aunt beats him more than his parents, and he adamantly refused to live with her. When the judge then suggested that he should live with his grandparents, the boy cr
