  1. I have to agree here. I had hoped to watch the first installment months ago, then the weather intervened in my plans. So I certainly can't claim that I have watched Part 2. Maybe some day over the summer... May ranking : No idea out of 10
  2. Welcome to FoH from the Philly corner of PA!
  3. Welcome to FoH from the Philly corner of the state!
  4. What part of PA? Since bourbon is one of my weaknesses, I love hunting. There are several stores in NJ that I like to frequent with decent selections and a place near Wilmington that can have some decent choices as well. If I can help out, let me know since it would give me an excuse to go shopping, you know, to help out a brother.
  5. To celebrate the 50th Anniversary, a local lounge was showing the movie this past Saturday, having a food spread,some beverages; sounded like a nice time. I have never seen the movie, so thought this would be the perfect time- enjoy the movie, some food, friendship, a cigar or two. And it snowed. So still have not seen this movie. Movie rating : No idea/10 Weather rating: 0/10
  6. I would be up to trying again. Didn't really do well on the last competition, but I think my years of NC smoking could help out. Or not and I might completely tank again. Would be fun to try, at least.
  7. Welcome to FoH from the Philly area.
  8. Welcome to FoH from just up 95 outside Philly
  9. Petite 109 should awesome! I am all for it. I love Churchills, but this sounds a little more accessible for more occasions.
  10. The holidays were job security for me prior to retiring from the fire service. Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, it didn't matter. I could guarantee a kitchen or garage fire, or a couple of them, as so many people vastly overestimated their cooking proficiency. I will never understand why to do not mandate cooking or kitchen safety in our schools.
  11. The fact that I am still in the top half of this competition never ceases to amaze me. But this week hurt!
  12. I would love to see a Corona Gorda. It would be perfect for a long summer afternoon.
  13. Welcome to FoH from the other side of the state!
  14. El Pres, so sorry for the loss. On the upside, that inheritance should buy, what, two boxes of CoRo's?
  15. Those Edmundos look gorgeous. Guess I need to draft an email now.
  16. Email sent. Hope that I am able to get in.Not that I have much chance of getting any of the picks correct, but it will be fun trying.
  17. Wow, T5 for the first week! Watch that number crash in the upcoming weeks. Speaking of that, maybe I should add my picks now while I am thinking about it. And congrats to BigGuns on the win.
  18. Would love to jump in on this. Hope to be fast enough to register so that I can make an utter fool of myself!
  19. Had fun last season. Hope to be better at remembering to get my picks in. Count me in!
  20. As a history teacher, it is infuriating that the textbooks that we use so oversimplify the period leading up to the American Civil War, among many other topics. This amazingly complex time is almost literally oversimplified into 'Lincoln wanted to free the slaves, so the Southern states seceded' and our societal reliance on Wikipedia do not help matters any. My final few weeks of the past school year were spent trying to explain all of the intricacies of early/mid-19th Century American sectional politics to our population of high school students who only seem to know how to locate information on Wikipedia. It is infuriating. I come here to buy and learn about cigars and spend my morning being refreshed as a teacher reading coherent, civil discussion about complex political issues. Bravo Nsxcigar and Bijan! And yes, text books are wrong all the time. Some of the error is just in shading of the details, but some is just outright, they got it wrong. I once had a student keep track of how many errors a specific math textbook made over the year and then had him write a very respectful to the editors of the book at the end of the school year. Great lesson for the student to think critically about what they are reading and hearing. Funny thing is, we never got a response for the textbook editors...
  21. I can confidently say that I may be able to get 2, maybe 3 correct. Have had half of the selection, so I feel confident that I might, possibly get 2 correct accidentally. But would love to try and see how bad I fail.
