  1. It's still unforgivable that they chopped this, their own good reasons notwithstanding. The box I sporadically smoke from is from Apr '99 and they are, at least as of the last one, utterly undiminished by the passage of time, quite the reverse! The box I'm holding is a TEB '07...not sure how I feel about even going into that box, although it would probably be equally as unforgivable to run any kind of risk of letting them go past their best. Someone's about to claim a glorious win in this auction, no question about that!!
  2. Phwoarrrr! TEB Bolivar!!! I'm still clinging tightly onto my CE's from those halcyon days.
  3. I have to ask you, didn't you think it was a trifle unnecessary to see the crack in The Indian's bottom??
  4. In the age of information, when a cursory 10 minutes on The www can teach you so much, how do people still get so easily suckered by fakes, at least by the really obvious ones? I mean, if you'd never smoked a cigar in your life but woke up tomorrow morning and decided it was a world that you wanted to look into, you'd do your research first, wouldn't you?? Ehh, perhaps that's easy to say from the vantage point that most of us here enjoy today. Perhaps it happens a lot easier than I might realise.
  5. I'm a registered nurse. And I really don't know but my best estimate is 800-1000, certainly no higher.
  6. And a beautiful thing it is!! I'm sure I'm not the only one here whose transposing that into a guitar body and feeling very covetous!
  7. You have to admire the man's ambition, I'll say that! Determination too, apparently, as from looking at the reams of commentary below the listing, it appears that he's been hawking it on there for 10 years! ? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/UNIQUE-OIL-PAINT-A-NEW-BEGINNING/284025674802?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
  8. Can I go back to the days of LFTH for a moment and shout "Mine" here and now?? ?
  9. Immediate gut instinct screamed #1 but I talked myself round to taking a punt on #2 in the hope that 5+ years left alone might see them giving me something slightly different from my others. Not sure there's any sound logic in that whatsoever, though.
  10. I can still vividly recall one of my first ever MC2 being pure vanilla ice cream! Been chasing that particular dragon ever since!
  11. I agree entirely! My current Mag 46 cab for smoking is a 2011 and the last one I smoked, while excellent, left me in no doubt that there's absolutely no need to rush through the remainder.
  12. The Mag 46 holds a particular memory slot for me in that it was a young one that, so far, has been the only CC to have put me on my arse! It was a daytime smoke and still managed to put me to sleep for about 3 hours that afternoon! My current cab for smoking is a 2011 and it's glorious, the last one I recorded notes for, I had down as a 94. Still very much a medium in both strength and body and still with legs to run for a while yet, I thought.
  13. Yeah I wouldn't disagree with this. It can be a bit lively and has the potential to slap you around a bit in the process but it's always a very good smoke!
  14. Using 65% Bovedas in a variety of sizes across 4x48 quart coolers and 1 desktop. Still have a few Heartfelt 65's in among them but almost completely transitioned away from them now.
  15. I think you're right!! Well, I know you're right! I'm sure I'll pick it up and put it back a couple of times, I'm sure I'll wince a little as I light it...I might even be tempted to say a few words in some kind of eulogy (insane?) but you're right. You just never know! "I realize I don't want to be a miser..." "Keep your more to receive your less, unimpressed by material excess..." "Get smart get down with the pow wow, never been a better time than right now"!! RHCP - Give It Away
