For the last three years in fact, I've been keeping a box of my 25 favorite smokes from the year as sort of a "time capsule" of not only what was smoking exceptionally well that year in my opinion, but also how my tastes have changed. Predictably, it...

    Update time. So we've been redoing a bunch of areas in the house, particularly setting up some more secure storage for the cigars, guns, and alcohol.

    So I’ve been wanting to work on this project forever and I’m finally getting around to it. I run two wineadors at the moment since the relative temp in MN (and in my house) changes so much. In the winter my wife and I just wanna be warm fast so 76-80 degrees is normal. In the summer, quite the...
