  1. Agree. The embargo gives the Castro's a boogeyman to blame everything bad on. It also puts millions of $$ into the hands of certain Cubans in Miami (calling cards, air charters, freight, etc). So regarding the powerful on both sides, I wonder if any of them sincerely want the embargo to be lifted?
  2. The cigar smoke stain will only add to the character of the book, IMO. Just don’t eat a peanut butter & jelly sandwich while you’re thumbing through the pages ;-) Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  3. I have a box of HdM Perfectos from the mid-40's that has this pencil mark as well. Maybe a quality control mark?
  4. News is scarce. Anyone hearing anything about the situation today?
  5. Official planes have left Cuba I’m hearing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  6. Cell service has apparently been "cut off" in San Antonio....anyone hearing anything else.?
  7. Unf###believeable pretty much sums it up, Nino. A country with all of the natural resources to feed itself... and it can't.
  8. Good question. I have also seen this milk packaged in the same cartons except in all Spanish. She did buy this in the “dollar” line, so...???? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  9. I'm hearing that more restrictions are going to be announced soon. Including a possible ban on the importation of ANY amount of tobacco and or rum from Cuba into the US. Anyone else hearing anything?
  10. Unfortunately, many more things. Several will be announced within the next 24 hours, I'm afraid.
  11. Two of these were purchased today with $5.00 USD. Milk for the next week for a family of four. "Only" three hours in the line. And she feels very lucky to have them.
  12. Hearing the same from Havana. Even the “party members” are finding things more difficult. Situation is fairly desperate in Varadero as well from what I’m told. USD is trading at 1:1.50 or more with the CUC. I look for the screws to be tightened to a degree not seen before if the President wins re-election. Polls in Florida are too close to call, so something could possibly happen in this regard in the next 30 days. SCOTUS pick could pacify the diaspora in Miami, so this is just me speculating.

  13. I’ve now seen photos of this cigar from three different sources. Each has looked very rough. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
  14. Same here, Rob. Love the old photos/postcards. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk Pro
