  1. That's a brilliant idea Ken, I have to ask my friends who are even nerdier than me to help me connect the dots bc the plot is so dense. A binge worthier show has never existed.
  2. If you want to crawl down the Winston Churchill rabbit hole, read the 3 part series by William Manchester. He's quite literally the last of a dying breed and the most interesting man I've ever read about. The audiobooks are quite good too and on Audible.
  3. Joe cocker is awesome though. I saw him open for Steve Miller band and he stole the show. Too bad he passed on. It is funny to think what I used to think was gentlemanly too. It used to be smoking Macanudo's and drinking Honey Brown...
  4. Call me the cat that ate the canary. I was the fortunate recipient of CigSid's and Zeedubbya's generosity. Thankfully Zee left some Cokes in the car or they would've had to scrape me off the floor from the nicotine kick in the second half. That's the first time I've gotten dizzy from a cigar since I learned how to retro. We were going to smoke outside until the 70 mph winds swept in...

    Anyone Insure their Cigars?

    I know I'm exhuming a post from the dead, but I've been pondering this as my cigar collection has become one of my most valuable possessions, and with the legality of Cubans becoming even more muddied, I think it's worth revisiting. How many out there have insured their cigar collection? Anyone ever collect in the event of fire, water damage, etc? I'm sure there are plenty of people with much larger collections than I who could probably give some wisdom on how to handle.

    Enforced Ageing

    Beats the alternative
  8. First one I had was a single in Havana and it was so good I bought 10 and brought them home. They were all as pedestrian as is humanly possible. When they're good, they're great, but man, a mediocre 2 hr cigar is so disappointing.

    Super Bowl Predictions

    I'm a contrarian. 27-24 Rams.
  10. Now that's a story! Thanks for sharing.
  11. Sooner or later the revolution will be replaced, whether gradually or abruptly. It's hard to avoid brain drain when you have very educated people with no hope for the future to offer. The poverty porn of visiting Cuba has its charm but it's followed by a profound sadness. It shouldn't have to stay this way forever. The spirit of the Cuban people is beautiful, but they deserve so much better.

    New smoker...for meats

    I'm a better cook than photographer. Turkey on the BGE with a brine of about 14 hrs.

    Pulp Fiction...

    Imo lock stock is better. Both great flicks tho. Just watched snatch a few weeks ago. Brad Pitt was such a bad ass in that
  14. If you feel Sopranos is watchable at best, I don't know what to tell you. Have you considered the possibility you just hate television?
  15. So did I after season 2. Then I binged on 3 on a flight and it sucked me back in immediately. It's extremely well-written and their interplay is revolutionary for TV. It's not fair to compare them, I think both are excellent for different reasons and well worth your time.
