  1. I believe I remember reading Taleb recommending ignoring the news, and I think he is one of the greatest thinkers of our age. Anxiety significantly prohibits critical thinking, so if reading the news is giving you anxiety, you’re likely not as well informed as you think.
  2. CCs are like golf after hitting that perfect shot. You keep expecting to hit it again, but it doesn't come...until you're right on the cusp of taking a break. They are as inconsistent as my golf game too - good luck, but it will be difficult to find a P2 that matches it...until you do.
  3. Last night I was reading CA and actor David Harbour was discussing his favorite CCs. I started thinking - how do these celebs get them? Not that it's hard of course, but do they buy online? From travel? Each one know somebody? Is there a Hollywood "cigar guy" that sources for all of them? I remember seeing a large NY lounge got in trouble once...maybe the high end lounges are the source? Note: I'm talking about sources in general (not specific vendors) and this post was ok'd by @El Presidente
  4. First I bought a tower. It only worked okay. Now I primarily use bunny ears...I think it is this one: https://www.amazon.com/Mr-Heater-Outdoor-Cylinder-Included/dp/B00823W9B0/ref=sr_1_7?dchild=1&keywords=tank+top+heater&qid=1603740084&sr=8-7 You're not going to win a beauty pageant with it but you'll be warm.
  5. First, this review is just what I needed. A full weekend with 2 under 2 and by Sunday night I was exhausted. Friday night was an all-nighter to give mom a break, and Sunday was spent trying to do yard with with an almost 2yr old. I dug the wholes and she filled them! Took longer than it should have but was still rewarding in its own way. Exhausted and covered in dirt and sweat, Sunday night I was able to finally smoke a cigar. I was looking forward to this smoke the entire weekend and it did not disappoint. A SP Beli may not sound like a cigar that should be called precious, but trust me it is. At least from this box. I have loved every single one of them. This one was woody and medium-bodied. Smooth retrohale and absolutely delicious. I paired it with a Buffalo Trace old fashioned. I only have 5 left out of this box now. I'd rate this one a 95 for flavor, but 100 for the relief and relaxation it gave me. It was so good I thought about grabbing another cigar, but thought better of it since Monday morning was not far off.
  6. I’ve been experiencing with 69rh Boveda. So far I’ve wetboxed a P2 and Dip2 for months. Tried them both and they were splendid. Much better and richer than normal (64ish rh)
  7. These have been great smokes. This one had no harshness but flavors have been subdued. Woody would be the top flavor, but it still mild. Smooth retrohale. Paired it with Victory Golden Monkey. Also had some Mich Ultras as it was a long afternoon watching Jags and golf. I'd give this one a solid 90.
  8. I have a 2yr old girl. We learned the hard way after my wife stubbed her toe. My father-in-law always says "holy sugar" around all of his grandkids. He says ssssuugar very slowly. Except that time he was surprised to open his christmas present: a dirty harry .44 cal. He said it just as slowly and deliberately in front of all the kids. I think everyone felt it was appropriate.
  9. I have tried numerous tobacco scented candles. None of them great. Open to suggestions!
  10. I haven't paid attention to soccer/rugby - what are they doing when there is a new infection?
  11. I keep hearing people say currency. Is the currency that matters AUD/USD? I don't remember any smoking deals (lame pun intended) when the aussie dollar collapsed in March. And it's only up 2% YTD and down over 11% from it's peak in the beginning of 2018.
  12. I meant aged on BR...I think you mentioned more traffic. Has that resulted in more (potentially higher) bidding?
  13. Is it just me or have boxes become more expensive since that CA article?
  14. I agree with a lot of what’s said. Hard to focus on the cigar. Also, wind, etc seems to take away from it.
