    FOH'ers Daily Smoke

    BME AGO 11 Cohiba 1966. Haven’t had one in a while but though it would good for game 1 of the World Series. With an Americano and so far off to a great start.
  2. What’s driving me nuts is the government spending my money to run the same commercial about why they legalized it over and over and over again on TV. Any time the government comes into new money that can’t spend it fast enough.
  3. Flight delayed so had a HUHC. Cigars allowed.
  4. As many have said no need to throw out. I have some along with beads and if I find a dry one I put in a small Tupperware with a bowl of distilled water. To be honest I usually forget about them until I find another dry one and then switch them up. Works great, never an issue.

    PSD4 this morning before heading to the airport.
  6. More likely now with Doug Ford; he likes beer and free enterprise. I think eventually but probably not too soon.
  7. Lots of Supermarkets have beer and wine now in Ontario. Only a matter of time before corner stores and gas stations do as well.
  8. I don’t know all the details but I know there is an excise tax at least and I bet my house that the tax rates will only go up as often as they can.
  9. Exactly I spray with distilled water when I see humidity has gone down a bit. You don’t want them totally wet because they are meant to absorb or release moisture. I’ve used the same beads for years without ever having an issue.
  10. The Canadian Cander society seems to be staying very quiet on Canada’s new law legalizing recreational marijuana. I’m sure once they get everyone doing it and they can start increasing taxes because our government (who are the equivalent of crack addicts) needs more of our money is when they’ll be told to speak up.
  11. THE GIMLI GLIDER It was 35 years ago that a white-knuckle Air Canada flight, and miraculous landing, would thrust Gimli into international spotlight. On July 23rd, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143 carrying 69 passengers was scheduled to fly from Montreal to Edmonton. ADVERTISEMENT But the plane ran out of fuel while flying over northwestern Ontario. Thankfully, it was being piloted by Captain Bob Pearson, who had been trained as a glider pilot. He was able to safely land the Boeing 767 safely on Gimli's defunct airstrip. The plane would become known as the Gimli Glider. The Air Canada Boeing 767, a.k.a the Gimli Glider, on the abandoned RCAF airstrip. (Wayne Glowacki/Winnipeg Free Press via Canadian Press) Decades later, people in the Manitoba town, and around the world, are still fascinated with the story, says Barb Gluck, president of the Gimli Glider exhibit. "Because it's a happy story, and we really understand that when people are here, and they love the skill that it took for it to happen. They are always interested in the impact it had on aviation and the changes as a result of it," she said. "And the fact that people walked away from it, thinking for 17 minutes that maybe they wouldn't walk away from it." The Boeing 767 was the first metric plane to fly in Canada, which caused the miscalculation in fuel. The Fuel Quantity Information System computer on Flight 143 was malfunctioning, so ground crew in Montreal loaded the fuel manually using calculations involving the specific gravity of jet fuel. But the crew used imperial measurements, not metric, so the plane had only half the fuel it needed to reach Edmonton. It began to run out of gas near Red Lake, Ont., a little over 200 kilometres (124 miles) from Gimli. Retired Air Canada pilot Robert Pearson waves to the crowd in Gimli, Man., on July 23, 2008, the 25th anniversary of the incident. Pearson will be back in Gimli on Monday for a meet-and-greet. (Joe Bryksa/Winnipeg Free Press via Canadian Press) So many things could have gone wrong. A car race was taking place on the airstrip when the plane made its landing. There was also a high school reunion happening in a hangar nearby "that relished the fact that the plane didn't come down on them," Gluck said. "Many other things could have happened that didn't," Gluck said. "So it's just a great story overall."
  12. Enjoy Chicago, it’s one of my favorite cities.
