    Jose L. piedra Blend

    I've smoked a lot these over the years. They've always been a good inexpensive consistent smoke and one I would go to when I needed a confirmation that my taste wasn't off. The sticks from last box that I bought have been subpar. I've even thought I tasted the cheap NC profile that I never...

    WARNING! Win 10 Forced Upgrade

    Careful Brothers and Sisters. Microsoft is trying to force the Win 10 upgrade on any Win 7/8 system with Automatic Updates turned on. I caught mine at 6% and forced a shutdown. I found a little app download called Never10 that seems to have done the trick. I have no affiliation and of course...

    Finally Took The Plunge

    Trying a pipe has been on my mind for months.  A couple of recent comments about pipe smoking made me finally take the plunge.  First the idea that pipes are cheaper (or can be) than cigars in the long run and second is being able to tailor the smoke to the length of time available.  Then about...

    When he found out that it was my fault that our mail box was blown to smithereens.  Fortunately we are short handed so my job is safe for now.   Eric (Setharsis), Thank You very much!  I will indeed enjoy them.

    The last thing I remember...

    was cruising down the hill toward my mailbox before waking up half submerged in the pond across the road.  If it had only been one well placed USPS package I might have just been blown out of the car but there was no way these two packages.   We all know who the mystery bomber is supposed to be...

    Warning to the Board about an "Old" New Vendor

    I received an unsolicited email today from about their new website.  I PM'd Rod and the box split group I'm in and was informed that it's a revamped '1001' who made off with a lot of money during the 2010 fiasco.  They've done it once so the chances they'll do it again are "better...

    ATF Tobacco Auction for Licensed Dealers Only

    I receive emails on a regular basis from the Treasury Department about government auctions. This appears to be a huge auction of over 260 pallets of seized tobacco products. I looked at some of the lots and thought that they could be of interest to our retailers. Most are the White owl and...

    2011 Ultimate Spirits Challenge

    A friend thought of me when she saw this and posted it on my FB page. I immediately thought of all my libation loving Brothers and Sisters here and had to share. They don't get to the good stuff until about half way down. :love: 2011 Ultimate Spirits Challenge Disclaimer: I don't know...

    New/Active Content

    I've tried both IE and Firefox and both are the same. Neither "Today's active content" nor "View New Content" actually produce more than about the past 12 hours worth of content. I also tried using "week" with "Today's active content" and it returned the same results as 24 hours. The longer...

    AF FLOR FINA 8-5-8 Sun Grown

    I smoked this stick on Tuesday night. I new it was a higher end stick than the regular Arturo Fuente green label but am not sure which it is. If someone could comment on what it was I would appreciate it. Sorry there aren’t pictures of the cigar but I didn't think to take one before I started...

    Wrapper Wouldn't Burn

    Last night I attempted to smoke a Pinar Del Rio Oscuro Toro that I purchased in September. My first indication that there was a problem was when I couldn't get the wrapper to burn during light up. I mean it simply wouldn't turn to ash even after putting the torch flame on it. As I attempted...
