    Like a kid in a candy store

    Landed a part time gig at a cigar shop in town. Will help to pay the bills between auctions and I am having fun at the same time. There should be a law against getting paid to do what you love. :thumbs:

    Seems you can buy cigars infused with that rarest of coffee. Google Kopi Luwak and then ask yourself this question: Would you try one?
